I probably am <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">: , but wanted to solicit you all's thoughts on a touchy issue with me and my mother. My mother has always been pathologically frightened that dd isn't getting enough from my milk. She is 14 mos and nurses pretty frequently, but also eats a good bit of solids, which my mom has seen her do over and over. She happens to be tall and skinny, but very healthy and full of life;t hat is just how she is. The past couple days, dd has been sick and not eating any solids, but of course nursing like a newborn <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> . I have been totally fine with that, knowing she was staying hydrated and getting a fair amount of calories, not to mention comfort, in the bargain. Well, my mom comes over today to bring me something I wanted to borrow from her. She then says that she has brought sophie some baby food that she had at her house from when dd was little. Maybe soft baby food would make her feel better, and be easy to eat. I said, "Well, she hasn't been wanting to eat much of anything, but has been nursing a lot and getting what she needs." Mom hems and haws, and says "Well I thought it might make her feel better to have something in her tummy." She HAS had something in her tummy, as much breastmilk as she can hold, mother!! It does have CALORIES, you know <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry"> . She shuts up for a minute, trying to come up with anotehr plausible excuse for me to try to feed my kid something I know she won't want. THen says, "When I take antibiotics, it says to take it with food." I say, very pissed now, "Have I not mentioned about three times that she does have something in her belly? MILK!!" It's not that I might not have tried to give her something to eat later if she acted like she was feeling better, but that I felt she was trying to make me do it and make me feel bad for not "feeding" my kid. Am I just being too defensive? Mind you, I am very tired and my brain is not working properly today <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">: .
