Older gen are like that. They are not educated on breast milk benefits.

The reasoning is funny. Lol. But explain it nicely to your MIL. If you have BM in thr fridge you can explain how to thaw and when to give but if it is a lil bit complicated for your MIL to understand then you might want to consider mix feeding.

Sorry to hear that. BM is still the best for babies! Chubby babies don't mean they are healthier. As long as the baby is at normal weight and height for his/her age, it's ok. Many ppl don't understand that. Pls be more patient and carry on Mummy. You're doing great!

Can mix. Morning and afternoon can give bm then when u want bb to sleep through use fm. Don't need to fight with her jus do that u feel is right.

Explain to ur mil nicely that BM is beneficial to babies due to its antibodies content which is absent in fm. Babies need it to build up immunity system. Can do mixed feeding if weigh growth is a concern. Ask ur hubby to explain to her as well.

Just explain Grannies grew up and they are taught FM is better than BM

I just explain that BM has the antibodies to build baby's immunity. So it's important for baby to drink BM. I have to feed both though, coz not enough BM. :(

You are baby's mother not her.. Feed what is good for baby

Talk to her nicely if not talk to your husband

Just explain to your mil nicely or ask your husband to talk to her.
