I have a 40days old baby that exclusively breastfeed and my grandfather is having a birthday party that is exclusively for adults at his home. I was invited but when I call his secretary to confirm all 3 of us (LO, SO and myself) attendance. I was told my LO couldn't go the invite says "adults only". I told her "I know but grandpa knows I EBF and that I can't just hire a babysitter still he invited me". She said ok, I'll let him know. Two minutes after guess what? I get a call from my mom (his daughter) who tells me that if I want she will stay home and care for my baby so I could go to grandpa's party. I was shock! My mom knows that I have no problem finding a sitter I just can't leave my baby because he still EBF (apparently she was there and called me before my grandpa's secretary told him). I called grandpa. Grandpa said his wife is organizing the party and she said no kids. I was hurt and pist! I told him I could understand no kids but I have a baby that wouldn't be running or breaking stuff because he is only few days old and that they both know I EBF so what was the point on sending an invite? I hang up and called her and told her off. I told her she could have call me and explain herself to me and I would have been ok with it because it is my choice to do the best for my baby and that is EBF. But to do it this way it was shitty and cowardly of her and just show how big of a woman she is.
I am not pist anymore. I'm just hurt and hope grandpa mans up to her and reinvite me or I might loose it!
