ok my son just turned six months old on the 28th is EBF and weighs 17.10 pounds and is 27 inches long....the problem im having is my mother sister MIL SIL and best freind all want me to put him on formula and are complaining that he will become mentally retarded if i dont start him on solids asap........my BF and sis and SIL all also had babies this past year one is now a year old one is 7 months and the other is 5 months old all girls all are bottle babies. my son weighs more than the girls including the one year old by 2 oz and has never been sick.
my mom and mil are always trying to feed my son solids and cookies and candy how can i stop this they are pressuring me to wean him because they think its nasty and the ped says he has no more need for it to put him on a bottle too!!!!!!! all 4 have same ped....
what can i do i have tryed telling them my wishes but they do what they want any way.... when we have familly functions they porpously embarass me about it if front of everyone.
how can i tell them to back off they know its hurtful and do it anyway?
