Of course it's not true! There are many babies on here that's proven that false. However she might be confused thinking you literally only give baby 1oz then wait an hour and give 1 oz, etc. that's not how it is. It's one oz per hr away from you.

Aren't these the same in-laws who you're supposed to disbelieve even if they say the sky is blue? I remember your problems with them the last time.

Yes same ones. I'm just upset bc I told her to give Jay 4oz not 5.5oz and she doesn't believe me when I tell her stuff abut my kids I have to get a Dr note for her to believe anything

I wouldn't let her baby sit again until she read the correct information and acknowledge she was wrong

Uh, no. You just have to find a sitter who respects you.
