Sometimes I wish it were appropriate to tell family members to stuff it!!
You just keep doing what you know you're supposed to do and try to ignore all the bad advice being thrown your way.

That generation tends to have issues with breastfeeding. It was considered 'icky', 'inappropriate', and for 'poor people'. Both my grandparents hate breastfeeding - one of my grandmas called me a cow once after telling me how proud she was to formula feed all 6 of her kids.

If you want, you can borrow my grandma. She would be more into the fact that your baby is absolutely adorable than what sort of nipple goes in her mouth.

My brother used to tell my sister little cow, now he tells me little cow the second, but I think he is joking because he says it laughing and not with a mean tone. I guess I'm lucky my family is so supportive, I wish everyone has the same luck.

Don't give up and keep telling you mom your LO is fine. Pretty name, I like it :)
