We were about to plan a trip back home to Alabama--16 hr. car trip! But we took a small trip an hour away the other day, and had to stop half way on the way there and back so I could nurse dd (7wks old). She nurses constantly. I don't think she's gone longer than an hour and a half since birth and most of the time nurses about every 45 min. to an hour. This is fine with me, I just feed her on cue. But everyone else, my mother especially, says I'm doing it wrong. That she needs more scheduled feedings and that I'm overfeeding her (ok she does weigh almost 14 lbs). So far I've told them all to kiss my a$$, but it's really starting to bother me. But how do you tell a 7 wk old baby, "Sorry, I know you're hungry but it hasn't been 2 hrs yet, you'll have to wait". That's stupid, right?
