    Thanks everyone! It always amazes me how opinionated some people are. Parenting is such a personal thing! We all do it differently! I wish everyone could respect that! I'm so luck my DH and I are on exactly the same page and he supports everything I do with our kids. Sorry MIL hehe!!

    I don't understand why some women (relatives usually) feel so strongly that other women should not breastfeed...I get this from my MIL but it is not overt so it can be difficult to confront/challenge.

    One of my theories is that some MIL's find it difficult not to be in control of the nurturing...and breastfeeding potentially removes them from this process even more...

    That is so true and fits so many examples of unwanted advice

    Now if only I could think of it that way when someone is in my face about some choice I've made lol
