My friend just texted me that shes having a breakdown because her family is trying to make her pump so they can feed the baby, shes upset because the baby is only a month old, never had a bottle and she dosent want to break her bond with the baby. Plain and simple shes not ready to given him a bottle but everyone is trying to pressure her into pumping & bottle feeding. Can you guys please send me links to info she can show her family to get them off her back for a while? Thank you in advance. :)

I would tell those people if they wanted to see me or baby again, they could STFU. Otherwise, stop seeing them until they can respect her as a mother.

Why are people such self centered assholes?

They either listen or they do not get to see baby until the 1st birthday party. That's what I told my family and they backed off.

If they want to do things with the baby they can BATHE and DIAPER. Those are both more interactive than feeding, therefore more boinding. Feeding is the LEAST bonding activity you can do with a newborn because they're zoned during feeding.

She can tell them once and for all, NO, next request earns eviction from her presence.
