My mom never breastfed. She said she tried to breastfeed my sister, and claims that my sister bit her on day 3, so she said "never again." My brother was never breastfed.
DH was breastfed for 6 months, and his mother stopped bc her MIL told her that breastfeeding for more than 6 months would "spoil a baby." (This same woman, my MIL's MIL, DH's Paternal Grandmother was floored when she heard that my DS was still nursing after 17 months).
Anywho, I find humor in hearing the stories from my mom and her 3 day old bitting babies, and DH's family with the spoiled babies due to breastfeeding. I have to laugh, it keeps me from thinking that they are completely crazy.
