Nursing Grandmother?? [Dec. 12th, 2004|02:38 pm]


Ok, I don't like my mom. That's normal. But... wouldn't YOU protest, too???

I still nurse my toddler (25 months). My folks came over to visit. My mom pulled up her shirt and showed her breast, offering my son to nurse! I was PISSED. Would you protest? I did. My folks got upset at me for doing so (in MY house), and both of the stressed that it was okay.

My mom nursed her three kids for about six months each. I've always thought that it bothered her to see my nursing my toddler. But now SHE is attempting it. Is that normal? What do you think? Is that okay? Would you protest? Am I overreacting? I do NOT want my Toddler nursing from any other woman: His nursing is not for nourishment anymore; it is for comfort.

See, I like my MIL. But is she had attempted to nurse my son, I'd be pissed, too. I'm wondering if my mom has ever nursed my son while she was babysitting. Whether she has or not, the episode this morning has proved her unfit for hanging out with my kids under no spuervision of my kids' parents.
So do you think that I'm overreacting? Again, should I be pissed? Wouldn't you be?

really, I am furious. I crossposted in many places to get many responses, supportive or not. I'm still shaking from the adrenaline as I type!
