u should do what is best for baby... that does not mean to be on wrong terms with mil, explain gently that these things are not recommended and it will affect baby's health in the wrong term... tell that, we can ask doctor on the next visit and then do... it is hard to explain to our elders, they are saying because they think its in the best interest of baby... cannot blame them, coz they think they did it, and their children are fine, so why not and all... say it has been proved by research of over 40-50 years...
