I saw the BHG article and was really offended. I usually try to "see the other side" or whatever but I really think they could have said what they meant without being so derogatory. I really HATE when the bathroom is the place that is suggested to nurse. REALLY? People poop and pee in there. Would you take your meal in to the bathroom and sit on the toilet to eat? or even just make it in there? We have all of these rules and procedures to make sure that we do not have fecal matter in our food or people fixing our food with dirty hands and yet we push moms into the bathroom to feed their babies who have an immature immune system. sigh, sorry to rant.
re: chocolate milk critics...I think parenting is such a weird world to navigate. People are so quick to offer up criticism and slow to offer praise. I hate that that is the dynamic of the parenting community. I try to keep in mind that a) I don't know the whole story about anyone else's life but mine b) I am not that child's parent and c) unless a child is being physically harmed, it is not my business to provide "advice" unless asked.
I am still shocked that people will just come up and give their opinions w/o knowing a person or even being asked. It is really just an interesting social dynamic to me.
my baby is huge too, specifically his cheeks
love to pinch them and I love how they scrunch up when he smiles! 4mo sleep regression hitting hard here. Last night and night before we were up nursing every 1-1.5hrs. I am about to fall over asleep! He just has so much to say and do! silly boy. Oh, and my hair is falling out everywhere!
fertile quality cervical fluid here too. think I have had my second AF but it was kind of a pseudo AF b/c it was really short. I have been getting it though after all of the normal signs etc. oh well.
