|I was given a HUGE compliment this morning. Two of my nurses thanked me for educating them, and validating their own personal beliefs with my parenting style. They loved to see the babes in cloth, exclusively BF and worn around the room in a sling (by DH). They were really impressed with my AP mom friends who came to hold babies so DH could go home during the days to sleep and take care of our dog. They loved to see how calm I was and how relaxed the babies were because of it. They were sad that so many of their moms, especailly the multiples moms refuse to BF, I mean even to try, and mindlessly take any pill given to them without question, and not even really try to care for theor own babies since the nurses are there to do it for them.
It just goes to show, that even a hospital witht the best of intentions cannot change the attitudes and practices of uninformed or unattached parents.
Welcome home and congratulations!!
