I don’t let my mother-in-law watch my daughter because she refuses to feed her my breast milk- my husband is on her side

A DISTRAUGHT mother has shared her frustrations about how both her husband and his mom are not respecting her wishes regarding how her child is raised.

The new mom, although upset, took to Reddit to gauge whether or not she is being too controlling.

The mother explained that her daughter is “exclusively” breast fed, but her mother-in-law refuses to give the baby breast milk and instead provides her with formula. 

Apparently, the grandmother has some unconventional beliefs about breast milk.

“She said to my face breast milk is dirty because mothers who have s*x pollute their own bodies,” the frustrated mother wrote in her post. 

“She has never liked me and I’ve tried to get along with her, but my husband just keeps his head down and refuses to speak up in my defense.”

To make matters worse, the grandmother simply throws out her daughter-in-law’s breast milk instead of giving it back.  

The mother has resorted to hiring a babysitter because she does not trust her mother-in-law, which is causing tension in the family. 

The mother added that she and her husband have been fighting over the issue, as he is siding with his mom because he doesn’t feel how his daughter is fed is a “a big deal.”

“I’ve gritted my teeth and let my MIL walk all over me because of my husband, but this is outrageous to me because it should be my choice how I feed my baby,” she continued in her post.

The mother said she feels like her family is “getting split apart,” and is worried that she is being unfair to her mother-in-law, despite how upset she is over the situation. 

If the mother has read the responses to her vent session, she may feel reassured in her disbelief, as hundreds of people showed their solidarity with her and agreed that the grandmother was out of line.

“The only person splitting your family apart is a woman calling you dirty. You don't have to accept that,” a user wrote. 

“Your husband needs to get on your side ASAP or the implication is that he agrees with her treating you that way.” 

Another commenter warned that this is “just the beginning of [the mother-in-law’s] shenanigans.”

A third sympathizer also brought up their concern with how the mother-in-law acts.

"You have much bigger problems than breast milk. Your MIL has sexist misogynistic attitudes that will impact your daughter if you don’t protect her,” they commented.

This new mom is not alone when it comes to her growing frustrations with her mother-in-law. 

Another daughter-in-law previously posted on Reddit that her mother-in-law told her husband not to get married because he shouldn’t have to live a monogamous life. 

A venting and pregnant bride-to-be alleged that her mother-in-law is refusing to attend her wedding unless she moves it up because her mother-in-law does not approve of being pregnant while walking down the aisle.
