Quoting Holly Marie Read:" I'm frustrated. My mother-in-law asks me DAILY when am I going to give my baby cereal. When I tell her ... [snip!] ... already? Let me also add that she is VERY easily offended and takes everything personally if I don't want to do it her way. "
We had this same MIL issue only it was about my LO's penis and us not choosing circumcision. Now I know these are too different topics but I think you can handle them the same way. Hopefully this will not offend her.
So this is what we did after she told us about her concerns a few times. We said thank you for your concern but this is what we
are choosing to do for our
Son. Then we told her "What you are talking about is an outdated way of thinking"( IMO this is true about both topics) With the new research that has been done Drs no longer recommend this.
So thank you for being so worried for us and the health of our LO but we did not make this decision with out talking to our pediatrician and doing our own research. So please don't be worried any more.
Then if she brings it up again, you say I already told you how we feel about this so I would not like to waist the time we have to talk on this subject. How have you been?
