If you want to remain polite I would just smile & say, "It is my personal choice and it's not up for discussion." and change the subject. If they push, repeat- "It is not up for discussion!" It is your body, your baby, your business- not theirs.

I never had a problem with any family giving me flack about my choice, but I got crap from complete strangers in grocery stores. The conversation would go: Aww, she's so cute! ...How old is she?... What's her name?...Are you breastfeeding her? When did that become anyone's business but my own? I used to say."no, I couldn't", but I was berated and made to feel an inch tall by people I didn't even know. This time I'm going to say, "That's really my own business." and watch them squirm.

Good luck to you. I hope your in-laws lay off and keep their opinions to themselves.
