Maybe you can ask her to continue buying milk, then sell it in the forums. Take it as extra cash as well as, faster for her to finish using her money.
You are the parents, not her. Amazing...she actually ask the CL not to add chinese wine in...my in-laws are stocked up quite a number of chinese wine for me for my confinement. In fact they didn't know that the alcohol will go into the breastmilk. Thus I would have to watch the timings between my intake of the wine and bf-ing the baby. My in-laws also brought up 4 children ! But they dont't going on about how great they are to bring up 4 kids and must listen to their advice. If we insist on our way of doing things, they'll still let us be. In fact if we say the doctor says this and that, they might just grumble how come last time they can but now cannot, but after that dont't say anything.
Ya if breastmilk have blood it's very obvious, like strawberry milk colour. I only had blood in my breastmilk when my nipples crack in the initial stages. Now breastfeeding for almost 6 months but never had the case of "breastfeed until blood come out".
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do NOT feed your baby FM since it's not like you have no breast milk. If not next time you'll regret not giving your baby the best. Ignore your mother in law, even if you have to throw away the milk powder also Bo bian.
When will your confinement finally end? I really feel so exasperated for you.
sigh.. you very poor thing.. confinement also cannot rest well. Hey, if your hubby still dont believe what you said about yr mom. do you have a voice recorder or use yr hp... record your conversation and let him hear.
we are all here praying hard for you for yr mother in law to go back sooooooooooooooon! BTH...
Yes, NAN is closer to breastmilk, others one of my friend tried is a little bit sweeter.......
My mom has 5 kids, and she BF my youngest brother till he was 3 yrs old ...all of us were BF by my mum....pls tell your mother in law to not to base her experience in BF on you, cos' clearly all of us are different, some mummies have more breast milk some dont't
If like your mother in law say BF cause rashes and all then ask her how come so many mummies since many years ago manage to BF babies ?
Tell your mum in law to respect you, and you will respect her ....
As for being a stay at home mum, why not you get a part-time job? or home based job? that will help you to supplement you income...
I've been reading your threads too.. felt so angry and furious... for you... i do agreed why not ask your father in law to come over and see if can help out.
Perhaps your hubby can call him and explain the situations. If this persist on, i dont think you need to act depress, will surely kanna it cos of your mother in law.
Do take care.. I've a mother like yours so fully 100% understand how you feel.
sigh...everydae sure got sumthing to argue with her....as for my father in law he is willingly to pick her up BUT SHE dont want GO BACK AR!!!!! Therefore no choice have to resort to the last solution...SPEND HER $...(so that she can go back when $ run out)
i started my 3 kids with NAN cos pediatrician recommended but they can take it, got a lot of wind somehow, switch to enfalac cos friend recommended but my kids dont like it either so finally asked similac for sample and they started to drink on regularly. Before i swopped to similac, i always wasted half of the milk.
After your confinement, you will roughly know your bbs routine and your own routine.....so home base job is good if you want to supplement your income, dont't worry about not being able to cope....cos' all stay home mummies started out that way, but persisted and can handle it
