STOP! Please, Just STOP! - Page 2

To clarify, it's your mom, right? Not DH's mom?

Maybe just explain to her how important BFing is to you and how important support is to successful BFing. Tell her that constant mentions of formula do not make you feel supported, and ask that it not be mentioned any more.

Also maybe you could thank her for being concerned, but that you can handle his nightwakings on your own, that you'll try to keep his crying as short as possible and that she should try to sleep.

I'm sure your mom doesn't realize how her comments are making you feel. Communication is the key!

i don't understand why they think formula will help? he's going to wake up in the night to eat whether it's formula or breastmilk.
