Apparently now, we need a law to enforce all mothers breastfeed for the first 6 months. The woman is a menace to all normal mothers everywhere, and I say this as someone who has bfed 2 children well past the age of 1.

Every time she opens her mouth on these issues, I want to scream. She does more harm than good.

Thank you! I was so busy being cross i got my signs backwards.

Oh, FFS. She's not the brightest person in the world, is she.

And that last comment about not expecting someone else getting the baby out of her.

what an idiot
and am i the only one who's never heard of her?

StewieGriffinsMom Mon 02-Aug-10 21:34:01

She should be grateful she had a healthy pregnancy, a good baby and found it easy to bf not dismissing other women as bad mothers.

WoTmania Mon 02-Aug-10 21:34:27

You are welcome. She's just in the early BF Envangelist stage and I think her intentions are good. Maybe someone should suggest if she really wants to get people BF to 6 months and beyond she get some proper training as a peer supporter or BF counsellor.

I've now read to the end and changed my mind. She's a smug idiot.

Who would want to be supported by her!!
I know what you mean, bf has become very important to me since I've done it but I hope I'd never have had the insensitive stupidity to say something like that

Stick to looking pretty, love

StewieGriffinsMom Mon 02-Aug-10 21:37:13

She's done this about giving birth and pregnancy though. Its the idea that if you don't do it her way, you have done it wrong is just so damaging to other women.

WoTmania Mon 02-Aug-10 21:39:33

SPB - that's why she needs proper training and someone to redirect her enthusiasm. grin

Do you think proper training can actually fundamentally change her opinion though? Or do you think the smugness and judginess will be there under the surface, waiting to inflict itself on some poor hormonal woman?

I think I don't ever want to get stuck in a playgroup with that woman. The NCT should ban all members from reading her drivel so as not to depress first time mothers.

I mean it's nice that she's happy an'all but, honestly - engage brain, speak. Preferably in that order.

What's the betting her next baby will be a 68-hour back-to-back labour which stalls when the baby unexpectedly disengages and turns transverse?

WoTmania Mon 02-Aug-10 21:49:25

I think it would possibly make her more aware of others peoples feelings and views.
I trained (PS) with someone who started out very similarly opinioned. She still thinks the same but accepts that it isn't worth ramming it down people's throats but more worthwhile to help and support people who want supporting and let the ripple effect do it's thing.

or bleeding nipples and mastitis.

TYV - hehe, my MW had a 'perfect' fed every 4hours, contented, gained a lb a week on BM alone baby first time. 2nd time was the type who needs to be held all the time and is screaming before their eyes are open if you dare to put them down.

amothersplaceisinthewrong Mon 02-Aug-10 21:54:19

And how exactly would she enforce such a law. And what would happen to those that broke it. The woman is mad.

NOt that I had ever heard of her before.

WoTmania Mon 02-Aug-10 21:58:21

Well, obviously, you'd have to show ID (*photo* ID) for the baby whenever you went shopping and sales of blenders/food processors to those in parenthood of an under 6 mo would be banned just in case they sneaked a renegade puree in.

WoTmania Mon 02-Aug-10 21:59:20

and all those caught breaking this law would have to go to prison - it wouldn't matter because it's not as they're exclusively BF, is it?

StewieGriffinsMom Mon 02-Aug-10 21:59:35

Do you think the DWP could force women back to work at wet nurses?

WoTmania Mon 02-Aug-10 22:01:24

Do you know, I would cheerfully wetnurse. Bring it on. grin

StewieGriffinsMom Mon 02-Aug-10 22:02:49

Its a better job prospect than lap-dancing but really, who wants the sleepless nights again?

WoTmania Mon 02-Aug-10 22:06:11

oh, I'd be fine. I would just cosleep. What's a little lost sleep anyway. I'm hardcore me.
