Ok, so not the first family function, but the furst one with my husbands side (Almost the whole side!) who are ABSOLUTELY not breastfeeding people. They don't like me because of the way I raise my 8 month old, never really did before that either. I am very laid back, they are very image conscious. To give you an example, my mother in law told her husband when she was pregnant with my husband that she wuoldn't nurse the baby because "my boobs are small enough already, why would I want the mto shrink more?" You can see why I'd be nervous arund them. Also, my son should have staretd solids at 2 weeks old like hus father (no joke, cereal to sleep through the night at 3 weeks or so!). So with this big Easter dinner comnig up at DH's aunt's house with aunts,uncles even great grandparents of DH in attendance, how do I nurse my son without offending anyone, or being so uncomfortable I can't even let milk down?! And how do I keep people from putting food in his mouth that he can't eat? He has no teeth yet! I need advice desperately!!! Thanks so much ladies for the BTDT wisdom!
