I had never ever met someone who practiced ezzo until today. I heard stories but it just didn't seem real. You would want to cry if I told you what all they were saying. They kept saying very forcefully at the end to the pregnant woman, You are the boss! Not the baby! I was thinking, huh? They are employees? Then how come I'm doing all the work around here?
Seriously, they spoke like their kids were the enemy and they had to stay on their toes to be sure they didn't get the upperhand. One woman said, When I nursed, it was all business, none of that bonding stuff, just for food. Then later she was talking about how she didn't feel bonded to her twins. I wanted to scream, OF COURSE NOT!!! YOU REFUSED TO BOND!!! So sad.. not just for the kids, but also for the mothers. She might run a tight ship, but where's the love?
I told dh I felt like I just left a training session for baby boot camp.
BTW, the pregnant woman decided to try the sidecar arraingement after talking to me. I knew she was salvagable because she said she was looking forward to breastfeeding.
I was really upset and dh said maybe I shouldn't go back, but I said, What if they convince some poor mom that really wants to do right, that she is wrong? I couldn't live with myself. It is 2 hours once a month. I can steele myself for that short a time, right?
