Okay, I know I'm preaching to the choir over here, but I gotta get this off my chest...if I were to post this over there I would majorly get <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/FIREdevil.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="devil"><br><br>
Several mama's that I 'know' on there and are pretty AP will occasionally post about sleep issues they are having with their DC, and they will say "Any advice? BTW, CIO is NOT an option for us." half a dozen people will pipe up and say "I know you don't want to do CIO, I didn't either but then I did it and now she sleeps so well!" Yeah, after you let her SCREAM her poor little heart out until she realize Mama wasn't coming for her, yeah...works great! I get so irritated! Why post CIO advice when the OP said they didn't want CIO advice? Grrrr, why are the mainstreamers ALWAYS trying to convert AP'ers to the darkside?<br><br>

Argh, this has totally happened on a board where I post! And in an AP folder, no less! I don't know what I'm still doing at some of the boards where I post, except that I always hope something I write will strike a chord in someone and they'll realize there are other options.<br><br>

Heh, I just realized some of the die hard mainstreamers feel the same way about me...they'll post questions about "Help me get my baby into his crib" and I'll direct them to Dr. Sears website so they can learn how to cosleep safely. I'll say "There isn't any real reason to not cosleep, go to Dr. Sears site so it's safe." they probably think I'm trying to convert them to the AP side. :LOL

LOL, well I assume if this was the Milton Mommies site that you'd have backed me up during the thread I just got BBQ'd on <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/biglaugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="laugh">:<br>
Someone posted a real snarky thing asking me for proof of mental "issues" with allowing a child to CIO--so I posted every single link I could find on this whole board--let the b!tch sort it out. However, 3 people posted or PM'd me thanking me for Dr. Sears site--saying their docs had said this or that and this guy is a ped--they were all excited.<br>
I say just keep putting the info out there, think of the difference it will make to the one baby who's mom learns something from it. KWIM?

Mainstream boards make my head explode. People suggesting CIO makes me want to jump through the computer to strangle them. I pretty much avoid mainstream boards for that reason. :LOL

I had a similiar experience recently, and it made me feel so good. Amidst the suggestions of how/when to CIO, I decided to speak up with some anti-CIO links. Soon after, I got a pM from the OP thanking me for the links <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/luxlove.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="throb"> It made me absolutely giddy, :LOL
