I just want to get some opinions/thoughts on this. My LO is one, and right now she only takes 2 -3-4 oz bottles per day (of EBM) and only when I am at work 4 days per week. Well, my mom who's always been so supportive of my BF (even though she wanted to but couldn't bc their was not much support for BF mom's when I was born) is starting to get on my nerves. I feel like she's trying to wean my daughter. She's telling me that she needs to get off the white stuff and that baby's aren't supposed to drink from bottles after one, ARGH! I said something about it and she was like "oh, yeah, and I didn't have 3 kids, so I don't know anything"
Well my opinion is that I'd rather pump my milk because it's not an inconveince and give her that (she's taking it w/snacks now) bc I'd rather her have my milk than CM. I also don't think that her taking bottles will cause a problem. The only thing she drinks is Bmilk from bottle and only when I'm away, she drinks water from a cup. So when she doesn't drink Bmilk anymore, she will not drink from a bottle, right, so why the big deal?
I'm sorry this is so long, but I just wanted to get some opinions from some experienced, BF mamas, what do you all think. I am doing okay? TIA
