Quoting Asher and Haddie's Mommy:" How do you make someone who is ignorant about how hard it is to EBF understand the importance of not ... [snip!] ... pumped or how much time it takes to get it. It's not like I can just run up to the store and get more. It's so frustrating!!!!!"

I don't think you're supposed to refridge after a feeding... I was told by nicu either offer less at a time or dump whatever baby doesn't finish. Well it is your mom, not any old sitter. I would cut her a break and explain things again. and again and again...until she gets it lol.

Quoting Asher and Haddie's Mommy:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Jeeper:</b>" That seems like a lot to think about. I would just ... [snip!] ... to details, so I'm all worried this is going to be difficult for her. I try and make things as easy as possible for her. Lol."

Believe me I was leaving DD with my dad when she was 6 weeks old so I could work (my mom and I worked together) I got home one day and her diaper was on backwards, he swore he knew how to change a diaper! I had to figure out how to grandparent proof the expressed milk very quickly. The storage bags became my best friend. I gave him the instruction (in writing) how to thaw breast milk and warm it and how to swirl it instead of shake it to mix the fats back together. It took about a week but he got it eventually.
