I get a ton of non-AP advice from other MoMs....Schedules,Sleep training, propping bottles you name it. It gets on my nerves...it is mainly online...but also from people IRL. I joined our local MoMs support group and lordy be that is all the advice that I have ever gotten...even when I haven't even asked for it. Also any message board I have tried to join about multiples it is plastered with non-AP advice...how do you handle that?
I am just trying to find people I can relate to and who knows somewhat what I am going through...but it is hard...I feel like I can't win for losing...I am too AP for some places but then I am not AP enough for others(like here)...because of choices I have made...mainly FFing. I feel like if you FF on MDC then most people see you as a non-AP parent no matter how you go about it and any other thing you do as a parent.
I feel like me FFing sets me apart from other AP parents(in their eyes not mine) even though we Bottle feed with love and always on demand...we let the boys chose their own schedule ever day just like when I was BFing my other children. We do not prop bottles and I do not see myself as a lazy parent just because I FF my kids...I don't know how in the world you can be a mom of mulitples and be lazy...lordy be it is a lot of hard work 24/7 no matter how you feed them.
