My ds latched on the moment we met and things have been going smoothly since that moment. Well, we had some bumps here and there but for the most part, smooth. I returned to work when my lo was 5 weeks which was by force not choice. How sad we live in a society that holds jobs higher than family on the scale of importance but anyway that was off topic...
To the point.
My DH, mom, sil, or mil will keep my lo while I'm working. He is 3 months, 13.5lbs and poos all the time (: When my DH, SIL, and mom keep DS he averages 1.5 oz expressed bm every hour, but over time in four ounce bottles. However when my mil keeps him, she raids my frozen stash (we live next door) saying he is starving. Yesterday, she gave him four 4oz bottles and one 6 oz bottle in 9 hours!!! I don't know where he put it all? When I got him home he was extremely gassy, and spitting up(hrs after being fed). How do I convince her I'm not starving my DS? Every time I see her she mentions starting solids, or formula. It drives me crazy!! She also asks me all the time how long I plan on nursing. As long as I can!! But when she keeps him I'm so nervous she is going to blow through my stash JUST so she can give him formula and have control over what he eats.
He is a healthy, happy, baby who has gained weight since day one
How to I convince her he isn't being deprived?
