I don't understand this either, ugh! Why is everything that is natural, normal, and healthy from a historical and biological standpoint shunned in our society?! America makes me so mad........ I swear....... My brother told me that my mom is even complaining to people behind my back about how I shouldn't be cloth diapering, like she's concerned about how much work it will be and time consuming and an inconvenience for other people watching the baby - like daycare. Well, news flash to mother! I'm not even planning to have my child in daycare unless it's a last resort, and no matter how much I tell her I'm excited about CDing and any work involved doesn't bother me, she still inserts her two cents that it'll be an inconvenience for me. I've even explained from a financial standpoint that it's best for us too, but that of course doesn't mean anything to her because she and my dad have lots of money and a few thousand $ in savings means nothing to her. Let's not even mention how anything we're planning to do naturally that is HEALTHIER for our baby is absolutely ignored by a lot of people, especially my mother, as if it's abnormal that we want to sacrifice for our child in any way we can to give her the best start and avoid introducing toxins and chemicals to her precious little infant self... Why is that not enough reason? Why is the healthiest choice never a good enough reason for people? I just don't understand why we're judged for these things and I don't think I ever will.
