Totally understand lol My MIL means well but sometimes I would like to say "you had your chance to raise YOUR children, now it is mine."
I mean if I want an opinion I will ASK LOL
When I said I was skipping rice/oatmeal cereal and going right to veggies and fruits you would have though my mother and MIL thought I was going to deprive him of food for the rest of his life. It's a different generation of parenting. I'm sure by the time DS has his own, there will be a whole new set of ideas that will sound silly to me. But I'd like to think I will have the good sense to stay out of it, knowing how frustrating it is to hear it all now.

Last time I spoke it my mother (mid-April), she was criticizing me for pursuing breast feeding with DD. she had weight gain issues and my mother felt that I wasn't doing everything in my power to make sure DD was fed (read: why wasn't I going to formula exclusively).
Apparently I'm a terrible mom because going to LC appointments, pumping nonstop, using an SNS tube, adding in formula ... It wasn't enough. She was questioning why I was so hellbent on this breast feeding thing to work, when obviously it wasn't working.
Blah! Don't tell me how to feed my kid! If I want to pump, STFU and leave me be!
