Also when DS was small had horrible wind and reflux and she often suggested to mix brandy into his bottles o.0 I just laughed when she said this... But she said it so often I know she was serious

With DS our paed had him on solids at 3 months.
Older relatives are like baby books - take the advice that works for you and ignore the rest. We've had virtually no family around since having kids and I would happily trade a bit of unwanted advice from time to time to have grandparents actively involved in my kids' lives.

Re: Annoying MIL
You know how to really annoy an old interferer like a MIL, mum, or random old lady at the shops? Smile sweetly and say 'oh really? That must be outdated advice, my paed/MCHN told me the way I'm doing it is correct'

My mil would never give advice as she is useless, plus she lives on other side of world.

The advice wasn't given to me, but someone I know what told to put a cot outside for the baby to sleep in at night on their veranda as the cold air was good to get them to sleep. It was...bizarre advice to put it mildly.
