Manic Mom's Mental Myriads

Stop by and have a laugh from Manic Mom's Mental Myriads on Motherhood, and some other stuff too, but mostly motherhood, wifehood, thoughts on writing, etc. No politics will be discussed here or geography, and I will not be solving any mathematical equations. Just some BS on whatever I feel like blogging on...

People Take Things WAY Too Seriously

All I said was, "There's nothing wrong with formula."

People are cyber-stoning me. I'm getting attacked like I've said Satan Is King or I Support Child Pornography over at Conversations.

But this cool chick Nello has something to say about it!

Thanks K!

Fuck em. What are you supposed to do? Let your kids starve if you don't want to/can't breast feed?

Ass holes.

I posted earlier - and now it's gone... oh well...

My comment was - I am sick of people who are so self-centered that they can't see what is best for the child... they sit there and judge me/you/whoever because they made a choice and they think everyone else should have made the same choice... yeah BF is good, but realistically not every mom can do it, (choice not to, Medical reasons etc) I wanted to - but unfortunately it wasn't what was best for my kids...they needed nutrition. I was sick (Staph Infection after each C-section) I pumped and dumped for two weeks, hoping to keep my milk up - and I just couldn't heal. I had to stop, and then when I was finally better (off antibiotics 18 wks later)- they were doing so well on the bottle, I didn't go back to Bf'ing.

Tell em to get over themselves... they aren't worth your time.

momma of 2--see those people at Conversations just assume like I'm some cruel, lazy, selfish mom who didn't even want to try to bfeed. I did. Didn't work. I can't stand how they think they are superior mothers and that their children will be smarter. Ugh!

Steph, screw em! I get attacked on Conversations because I think Angelina Jolie is a whore. As soon as I say anything negative, I become a 400 lb ugly woman with warts on my nose (or some variation). I imagine that most of these people are either 20 somethings without kids or real jobs, or they are grumpy women who get pleasure out of dissing others. The rest of them (us?) are pretty cool. So, I think you're great. The rest are a bunch of schlampes.

as a nurse i always try to promote breastfeeding, but if you dont want to or cant so be it...its your decision and its your choice and nobody has a right to judge you. as long as the kid gets his food its fine...

however it is crucial to give breast milk in the first 48 hours since this wont be milk but colostrum, a sort of milk which prevents disease.

other than that, do what you please, it isnt anyone's business anyway.

I hate when moms judge other moms. I thought we were suppose to support each other. Being a mother is hard enough then to have people critize you. That sucks.

We have to stick together!

Love your blog!!!

LOL that was so funny, and the sad thing is most of those anon ppl probably don't have kids...and are men. But hey whatever floats their butts onto a soapbox!

I still love ya!

Kelly--that's what it's all about! Sharing what others want to say! It's funny to hear that you've gotten a lot of traffic cuz I don't think I have that many readers!

Thanks to everyone who went over to Conversations and stuck up for me! That continues to be hilarious!

I'm with Charity--some of those commenters sounded like men. Add breastfeeding to politics and religion on subjects that cannot be voiced . . . who knew? :)
