*sigh* Not mine, but my IL's.

We had DS1's school carnival Sunday. I suggested to Dh that he recommend we just suggest meeting them later, instead of them coming...since we both were sort of working the event. No go..

But MIL had to continuously ask about how nursing was going and make comments about how her big babies she could not keep up with...etc.

I know the comments were made because of the issues with DS1 and their misguided knowledge that a baby needs solids from birth and cannot get enough nutrients/calories from breast milk alone to grow and thrive.

But I have nursed w/o issue 2 bigger babies since then.

i'm sorry you are dealing with that. i hate that people can not keep their opinions (esp unsolicited) to themselves.
you are the expert on your babies, and you know what's best for them! don't worry about what they say!!
