Just so you know the grrr wasn't directed at you, it was at the subject. Sorry if it looked that way.

I know, sorry. I think I need to walk away from it, I just can't seem to get my point across.

Me too! AM I really not interpreting what she is saying correctly?

Is it really not safe to say that all people with sleeping disorders should use caution, that it has nothign to do with obesity/co-sleeping?

she's comparing me to a politician, and I take GREAT offense to that.

They yanked the thread. I was kind of waiting for that but I do think it was kept somewhat respectful...could have gotten a lot worse!
You're not crazy Mamamoo. The contradictions in what she was saying were pretty bad.
Well I hope they don't yank this one for talking about the other one.
Sorry in advance if that happens.

yes it would!!!

i think instead of saying overweight/obese parents shouldnt co-sleep it should be said: people with known sleeping disorders shouldnt sleep with their child directly next to them. because i may be one giant sea cow, but i have healthy sleep patterns (especially now that DD is 2.5 and sleeps MUCH better at night) and if anything i am HYPER aware of her in my sleep.
argh.
we really need to put in pleas to the powers that be for our own forum.

Yeah, that was a truly sickening merry go round I got myself caught up on.

It would be nice if we good have a safe place to talk about stuff, but you know the OP did say all sizes welcome...maybe that was the issue?

They have reopened the thread and I posted. I don't know if it will help to educate people or not. Some people are going to be thick headed and prejudiced no matter what.

I am scared now being pregnant and obese because I have seen it equated before with child abuse/neglect and that obese women should be treated the same as moms who take drugs during pregnancy, smoke or drink alcohol. It is very scary that some people judge our parenting abilities by our weight.

Hi All,
I'm Marla mommy to 1 and 1 is still currently baking!! My daughter is 2 yo almost 3 and I am due in April with my little boy. My biggest concern really is if my daughter who self weaned about a year ago is going to want to try to nurse again when the baby comes?

I saw your post and thought it was very eloquent. I'm kind of hesitant to post there again, but I already spoke my piece.
I am pregnant and obese too. It IS scary the way that we can be perceived by others. Hopefully though, those ignorant ideas will never get them anywhere that matters.
This may sound bad but I think I am a more informed mom than many skinny moms who I see spanking, formula feeding, practicing CIO and feeding their kids nothing but saturated fat and refined sugar. I DO know about good nutrition despite my size. Ok sorry that was a little

Of couse! Don't worry about this though because if she does it may just be a few tries and then she will move on. If she wants more than that then she still has a need to nurse and you might find it to be totally cool. If you feel very strongly that this is not for you then some moms have found that expressing and offering in a cup satisfies their older child or letting them snuggle while you nurse or offering a story. When the time comes you will find your own path.

Thank you! I agree our parenting should be merit based and not size based. I don't think this is off topic at all for a plus sized pregnant mama forum. I have been thin and pregnant and obese and pregnant. There is a difference in how we are treated. My first pregnancy I gained sixteen pounds and was 154 when I delivered. I heard about the weight then too! I was so hungry all through that pregnancy and my poor babe was only 5#13 ounces at term birth. I am certain she was hungry too! Being obese makes it so hard because I really feel a lot of prejudice from the nurses and OB.

Same here. ANd I was just talking about this with a friend. I bet a LOT of obese people know a LOT about nutrition. I have been obsessed with it over the years...I think about food and nutrition constantly...

Hi! That's me! FTR, I think fat women and co-sleeping go together like milk and cookies. I really doubt Venus of Willendorf had an Arm's Reach Co-sleeper!

I am plus-sized but not pregnant yet, but hope to be soon, so I will be lurking this thread. Thank you all who commented on my controversial thread...can't believe there's a controversy! : Hope everyone is having wonderful pregnancies. I am excited to get pregnant again, because I think I've found a truly positive, plus-size friendly midwife.

We saw the OB today and he is not going to keep me Baby looks OK for now but he wants me to see the Peris instead for the duration of my pregnancy. He wants me to be followed closely because of the surgeries I had for the endo. So we are going to be on pins and needles during this pregnancy and hope to get to 38 weeks.
