So they are the ones who are holding you to unreasonable expectations and telling you how to raise your children, and they accuse you of “walking on eggshells”?!  Wow.  She sounds like a peach.

I can totally understand why your DH wants to cut off contact because they sound really toxic.  It seems like it would be a good idea to at least reduce contact with them while your baby is still breastfeeding, since that seems to be where a lot of your stress has been coming from.  I have a FI who has considered cutting off contact with his family, so I know where you’re coming from.  You already know what needs to be done – you need to support him completely in his decision.  This also means that you should follow his lead and avoid contacting them as well.  If you do need to contact them for any reason, run it by him first.  Keep communications open with him.  He likely feels very hurt and deceived by his family and needs you to be his rock.  There is going to be gossip and backlash for sure.  Ignore the hate, and block family members’ phone numbers and FB profiles if you really need to.  If he ever decides that he would like to rekindle a relationship with his parents, talk it out, weigh the pros and cons, and follow whatever decision he comes to.
