Hi pkshl, big hugs for you.
Can understand how you feel. At least your hubby sides you. If old folks are pantang, very hard for us to make them understand, sad to say. Best is just to follow some if it's not inconvenient. For me, I will not follow any even if my folks pantang... Coz I feel that I need to educate them.
Some old folks also cannot tahan babies cry. And they will blame everything and everyone and make very illogical comments. Sometimes my in-laws also like that. I just shrug and let them nag nag nag nag nag... But good thing for me, I dont't stay with them. Every time meet they nag only and they will compare with other babies.
Will you and your hubby be getting your own place?
