In brief: Myth

Sounds like your mother in law either doesn't respect your decision to breastfeed or is generally misinformed.
Either way she is wrong. There has never been a better feed that a mothers milk for her own baby.

In brief: No harm w/breast!

Whaterver mood or emotional state you are in, your breastmilk will remain "liquid gold" for you baby.
Breast is indeed best and will never harm him/her with changes in your affect.

In brief: Angry

I wouldn't worry about your baby dying, bur your baby may sense your anger and not nurse as well as he might otherwise.
Stay calm and enjoy your nursing and your baby.
