I'm still working through my anger at the following comments. Essentially they are implied criticisms of DH's and my parenting style.
FIL and step MIL who are both medical doctors, FIL being a professor and vice dean, told me that I am not intelligent enough to decide when to vax.... He also said that I have to have very convincing proof of dangers in vaxing from reliable sources in order to go against what 99% of the population are doing. I pointed out that of all the people who I know who are vaxing, they certainly are not doing it out of a sense of conviction and most don't even know what diseases they are vaxing against!!! And I don't have to offer him any proof for my decisions as DH's mum.... Silly man
That was the most annoying... but this couple don't stop telling me that in Denmark babies are wrapped up and put outside to cry themselves to sleep (I have no idea if this is true or not). Pretty much every time DS is picked up this is mentioned..
Also when their dog was barking hysterically and DS started to cry FIL said: "well at least we know DS can hear well"!!!
Idiot, there has been no question as to whether DS can hear or not. He should have put dog away until she calmed down.
Ummmm, I could basically keep going, but it's all just old school stuff and because they are doctors they think they can tell me what to do. They are just super conservative and are having a hard time accepting strange ideas like cosleeping, nursing on demand, baby wearing, etc. I think they honestly believe that I am ruining their grandchild
