Aunt Jennifer...How's the baby doing?
Hope all is well and he's off to a good start!
I called yesterday and the nurses had been giving him bottles...the gf says his blood sugar was low. But she said he was nursing a little bit but only 5 minutes at a time. I got the feeling that she thinks/or is being told this isn't good enough. I encouraged her that all mine did that. She kinda brushed me off but dh talked to BIL. He said that a LC was coming by today. Then he started saying how he wasn't bf and he was healthy and ok and *g* lot's of people turn out fine without bf'ing.: Yeah, well I got beat with 2x4's and I turned out great...doesn't mean it was optimal, lol.
anyway, they can't afford anything I don't know how they think they have the luxury to give bf a try for all of 24 hrs and then walk away committed to formula for a year!? I swear. if people don't want to bf because it's hard or they're lazy, just say it. own up to it for heavens sake. Don't start up with all the lame a$$ excuses to justify it. I've seen too many moms struggle under very real cirmstances to bf successfully...this kinda crap irks me. And believe me, I'm not jumping the gun here. These 2 are complete idiots. For every 1 minute I think they might actually get their crap together, there are painful months/years where it's obvious they are never going to get it together.
I'm just back to being pissed that they brought a child into their screwed up little world and there's nothing we can do to keep irresponsible idiots from reproducing It's not just about bf either...it's the enitre package.
