AMEN sister!!!! This is exactly how I felt about all of that. It was easier on me to use a sling than carry in arms my child who had reflux. It was easier to breastfeed than have to go to the grocery store to buy formula, and it was in fact easier to roll over lift my shirt and go back to sleep in the middle of the night that getting up to get a bottle from the kitchen. So yeah here's to lazy parenting!!! woo hooo!
LOL, but seriously this add upset me greatly. Partly because I spend so much of my time teaching people how to correct the common mistakes bw'ers usually make that cause pain. If its done right with the right carrier for your body and age of baby their shouldn't be pain. How ever think about this, if you are carrying an extra 25 lbs for 3 hours it would be reasonable to expect some soreness from it. But that is different than pain.
oh and I did send an email. I want that ad down, NOW.
