Ok, i love my mother but my goodness...
Yesterday, I was about to flip. Since I have started back at work, the baby has been in daycare and my mother picks him up since DH and I get home later in the day. It's nice because it helps on daycare costs but...I think it makes my mom feel she knows whats best for our baby because she is spending this extra time with him. For example...She picked him up at 4:00PM. Once she got home, she gave him a 4oz bottle and then an hour later gave him another 5oz bottle! 9oz total within 90 minutes! I was so furious. She said that he was crying and he was acting like he was hungry so she fed him again.
Once I picked him up, he threw up all over the place..I was SO upset. Almost immediately after that, he started fussing and my mother proceeds to tell me that hes not getting enough food and that we need to feed him. His doctor has started him on rice cereal due to reflex so she thinks thats the green light to give him all kinds of baby food. I told her no! She got so upset with me. This was her comment.."When I had you, I listened to my mothers advice and gave you food at this age. But nooo, you will listen to the doctor because I don't know anything apparently."
Anyone elses mother like this? Its frustrating. I know she loves him to death but I don't like the way she talks down on me. Sorry this is so long..just so upset.
