I have a six month old daughter. When she was born she was premature and had to stay in the nicu we were advised to not allow visitors with her due to it being cold and flu season and her being premature and having health problems. My mother hated the idea she is a nurse and seems to believe that she knows everything about babies. I have tried to respect her opions as she is my mother but I do not feel right doing things that the doctors have told us not to do I have tried explaining this to her however, she just gets mad at me and says that I do not care about her or her feeling which is not true at all. We are currently in disagreement about her being able to stay over night with her. She is still breastfed and I plan on contuining to breastfeed past 1 year. My husbands parents are the same way his mom is a nurse also our biggest disagreement with them is to not give her candy or a chicken bone yes I said a chicken bone for her to use while teething. Any ideas on how I can contuie to be respectful but get my point across? I have tried the whole giving them information on the topic it doesn't work I have also tried talking to them about this again it doesn't work. Has anyone else ever delt with this before?
