Re: Family Criticism
My MIL was/is the same way. She never understood or supported breastfeeding and at the beginning was pretty darn rude like your inlaws. However, as my son grew nice and healthy and I continued to nurse despite her comments she eventually stopped making them. Although it became pretty much a 'non-topic' between the two of us I think she down deep knows it's the best for my son.

So I try and be empathetic to these people and don't rub it in their face, but still go about my own business on feeding and nursing my own son.
Congrats on making it 3 weeks, the breastfeeding relationship is an awesome journey.
