I think I said something along the lines of "I'm pretty sure that's not the case", and went right on ignoring them and folding diapers. (Of course, they were astonished that I used cloth diapers too, but at least they called them 'cute' -- Fuzzi Bunz, etc.)
She hasn't brought it up since, and we were just at a party with all the same friends plus others right before Joey's birthday. While the other grandmothers showed off their grandbabies and complained about the different nasty effects of formula, I just said, "Really? Joey's still nursing and he's just doing so great with it!"
I don't know if that pleased MIL (that her grandson was 'superior') or if it annoyed her that she couldn't commiserate with her friends. Whateva.
