I can't understand why anyone would want to alienate other parents. Do feelings not matter? I work full time, was only able to breastfeed for 6 months, and vaccinate. But I cosleep, practice gentle discipline, and babywear. Society doesn't support cosleeping, so where should someone like me go? Can't the community be inclusive? I've seen non-vaccinating parents talking about feeling alienated in many groups, but are they the only ones who deserve to feel included?


And I don't know if there is a bottle-feeding/formula thread here, I haven't seen it yet. But that would be great. Because I believe in extended breastfeeding, but found myself formula feeding due to circumstances beyond my control. One shouldn't have to live a perfect AP existence to get support for their AP ideals.
