Example: My mother-in-law is being (as I feel) verbally abusive to me in my choice to breastfeed my 5 month old. She has called me selfish & thinks that breastfeeding is selfish in that no one else gets to feed him. In actuality, I also pumped and have allowed her & my husband & others bottle feed him when they are able to & are around. I am a stay at home mom, who I breastfeed my two other boys till 6 months & am really wanting to breastfeed my 5 months old as long as possible (at least for a year). Since this will be our last child. Any tips & advice on her to approach her would be great as this has really caused me to have very bad feelings towards her. And I know her words affect my husband & he is pushing for me to quit breastfeeding too. Thinking that is takes up too much of my time.
