Oh, and when I was in the hospital I had to refuse visitation from anyone because every time anyone from my family came they were trying to give my baby chocolate. I explained over and OVER that just because it was my mom's "tradition" did not make it right and that she was my child and most certainly was not going to be getting anything but breast milk! Ughh, it was probably three months before I could trust any of them to hold my daughter.
angelamariebee: Thank you so much for your response. I think I was just so in shock and so hurt to find out that he felt that way. He is such a supportive guy, that I honestly thought he must really be joking when he responded that way about NIP. I hope you are right and it is just an adjustment...
A little background first. Out of my mom's 4 children I am the only one she breastfed.
While pregnant with my second child I made a passing comment about breastfeeding...
Mom: What?! Why are you going to nurse this one?
Me: Huh? Why wouldn't I?
Mom: Honey, you only have to breastfeed one child to get the anti cancer benefits, you don't have to breastfeed the other ones.
Me: Gee mom, I'm so glad I was able to provide that service for you.
I love my mom, but that comment went to the crazy list in my mind.
