So, another annoyance with my mother...
I handled this one better but she is not hearing what I'm saying. DD woke up at 3 this morning and fussed off and on till 3:45 when i got up because she wasn't going back to sleep (she had been fussing for a minute then go back to sleep for a few and repeat). Made the mistake of telling my mom and she immediately says there is something wrong w/ DD. Umm no! She keeps wanting/thinking I need to say something to the pedi on the 29th but I don't think its an issue of concern. Yes I would like more sleep but DD is EBF w/ me and given pumped milk during the day while I'm at work. I told my mom that BM digests quicker than formula and she's a baby, she's going to wake up! I consider myself VERY lucky she typically only wakes once! How do you ladies deal with family constantly going against BF? I told my mom that I wasn't going to say anything to the pedi because its normal and she will probably do this for as long as she is BF and that it was not something i was going to give up.
Oh, I wanted to start my own purees this month and have those ready after our 6 mo. appt but again, my mom is sounding put out by me wanting to do that and she won't be feeding the food anyways! I love to cook and bake and i don't care if the food has the same ingredients as the store. It's what I want to do. Me, not her.
