Do you always correct misinformation? Do you let it slide? ETA
Do you always correct others when you hear them say something untrue about breastfeeding?
example: My SIL sent me an email (her DS is two days older than my DD so he's just over five weeks) saying she had to start supplementing with 2-3 oz of formula after he eats because he drained her and was still hungry (this when the babies were 3 weeks old - hello, growthspurt!) She gets hugely defensive about everything though so I didn't say anything about it though.
She thinks because this is her third and my first she has more knowledge. I think maybe she has more experience but she doesn't have more knowledge. She has always starting supplementing by a month and quit by three. I'm five weeks in EBF (no bottles, but I did use a syringe plus nursing the first few days while she was in the NICU)
ETA: I've tried to gently correct her before and she FLIPPED on me. Told me I was going to kill my DD (when I was 30 weeks pregnant) if I did what I said (1-1.25 oz/hr rule). I was just wondering if anyone else let it slide to avoid a huge blow up fight where you know the other person is not going to listen anyways.
