Handling Differences of Opinion on Feeding Baby Breastfeeding

Handling Differences of Opinion on Feeding Baby


New mamas face plenty of unsolicited advice as they begin navigating life with their newborn. From day one there are opinions about rooming in during your hospital stay, vaccination schedules and breast versus bottle feeding. Assuming you are secure in your feeding decision, it may take some time to convince family and friends about the choice you made.

On this week's episode of Weeds, Mary Louise Parker's character had little to do with her husband and his daughter, after he instructed the baby nurse to feed the wee one formula despite the fact that mama was breastfeeding. While most of us do not find ourselves combating Mexican drug lords, like Parker's character, the issue is universal. How did you handle well-meaning friends and relatives who questioned your choice?
