I laugh at your ignorance

Not to your face, just in my head. My sister-in-law works in the medical field (can't remember exactly what she does) and she said this to me: "Do you think your breast milk is more watery than most other women?" Because my older son spit up a lot and didn't gain weight well, but that was because he had acid reflux.
It just blows my mind when I hear the crazy things people think are true about breastfeeding.

Isn't it frightening how some of the worst myths get perpetuated by those who should know better?

I'm just shocked at what some people think. I just want to say "Have you ever heard of books, internet and doing your own research?"

But that's the real problem, a lot of them aren't taught about it.

Yeah, I was kind of insulted when she said my breast milk was watery, but I know she didn't say it to be insulting lol
