<blockquote><b>Quoting Amber :]:</b>" hahah how old was your what to expect book? I got the one my mom had when she was pregnant with me. I think I read up until about 10 weeks then did the rest of my reading online lol"</blockquote>
It was the new edition...it said some bull crap about starting to wean at one year or like after 6 months....and I was like mmm no
<blockquote><b>Quoting Amber :]:</b>" she just turned 5, but still it's not like I'll be dropping her off over there or anything. Their house ... [snip!] ... Like, yes, some dirt is good for a baby's immune system and all that, but... this is a whole other level of dirty. :oops:"</blockquote>
Oh I see...yeah my Dad's house used to be horrible....his ex bf re did everything and cleaned it out awesome....the only thing that guy was ever good for.
It used to smell like pee all the time :/
<blockquote><b>Quoting Amber :]:</b>" I didn't get that far, but I've had a lot of people tell me to wean at 6 months, because it's not "necessary" ... [snip!] ... and there's a bonding plus. ugh. I'm just so over it. I just want people to have their own babies and leave mine alone! haha"</blockquote>
Yeah idk why people think its nevessary to switch a human baby's diet from human milk to dehydrated cow's milk ( or soy ewww)...It will alwys be superior because it changes specifically to meet the needs of your child as they age...and plus all the antibodies...Some women give their husbands a shot of it when their sick hahaa.
I used to tell people I am planning on letting Noah naturally wean...I would get " but they wil BF forever!!!"...Its actually like "2-7"...average being 4 world wide. My cousin self weaned at 14 months 0_0.... Now I just say....I don't have a plan :D
I flat out told Angel he has NO say about when Noah will wean...they are MY tits!! Until he starts lactating he has no say.
<blockquote><b>Quoting Amber :]:</b>" their house smells like shit all the time... 20 plus or minus ferrets... even confined to one room, ... [snip!] ... once they butcher the cow on the land that the cow is currently living on, so hopefully that house will be kept clean, but idk."</blockquote>
Ohh that sounds awful :(.... I feel bad for the lil girl that lives there.....Angel has to wash his hands and change his shirt ( or wear a smoking jacket) EVERY time he smokes :)
<blockquote><b>Quoting Amber :]:</b>" lol I tell people that "my goal is for 2 years, so we'll see." Even though that already I feel is opening ... [snip!] ... especially vaxing. thank god no one's asked me about that one. I'll probably just lie when it comes up so that they'll shut up."</blockquote>
Yeah I just say his pediatrition and I have him on a different schedule....but he gets everything he needs.
Everything meaning no vaccines ever :D
<blockquote><b>Quoting Amber :]:</b>" haaahaha yes! I don't think Eric really has an opinion on my parenting choices. He knows that I do a lot of research on everything so he's trusting my choices. I at least can be happy about that."</blockquote>
That really is a blessing....Angel sometimes still tries to test me saying things like...well arent you supposed to do this...noo I am pretty sure its this way..and I just tell him " I dont understand how you started to think that you know more about breastfeeding Noah then me....I am the one with the b**bs!"
That usually shuts him up....he just has these myths that hes heard in his head like "bfing him too much" idk wtf he heard them from...his Mom bfed on demand until her babies were 2
<blockquote><b>Quoting Amber :]:</b>" yeah, they're always saying "you can always come stay here" when I've been in between living spaces... I never know how to respond. Idk how anyone can live there, honestly."</blockquote>
<blockquote><b>Quoting Amber :]:</b>" haha yes, he agrees for now, but we'll see how things go after she's born. Then I'll just get to say ... [snip!] ... years ago?" :D but I really think he won't have anything to say about breastfeeding, it all seems to make sense to him so far."</blockquote>
Nice :)...I'm jealous haha...it was months of struggeling until we got thereafter N was born...now its parenting...I'm all about redirecting and he thinks N shouldnt "get away " with stuff. He trests him like hes already like 3 sometimes...I mean he is really smart...but he has no concept of right or wrong...he isn't trying to manipulate you.I refuse to yell at my 14 month old baby. I say No and things like "I know your mad but we have to do this " when he throws tantrums. Angel just has no patience....*sigh*....sorry for the ramble
