I’m lazy, exhausted & upset so instead of replying individually to each of those who have commented negatively about my previous post (or emailed.. thanks for that, you buttplug) I’m just going to write this blog.
As always with these things this has turned into a personal attack and gone back to the whole formula feeding vs breastfeeding thing.
You missed the point. Just sayin’.
I didn’t want to post that blog post because I was worried this would happen. I’m a sensitive person, you see. I care about people and I want to inspire and share and I genuinely want to encourage all mothers. & yep, I’m hurt. Congrats.
My high-horse is hurt too btw.
The blog post was meant to be about supporting every mother who wants the best for their child/ren. Not about how they do so. Like I said – there are a million different ways to mother brilliantly.
Some of the mothers I really admire do practically the opposite to me but they are working towards the same thing: a healthy, happy, well-rounded kid. These are individualised decisions based on the child, the circumstances and what not.
With my next child/ren I may do entirely different things! Because the child will be different, I will be different and the circumstances will not be the same. It’s not one-size fits all.
I included information because I felt the need to justify my choices (even though, as many have pointed out, I shouldn’t) because of comments I’ve had or others have had. I never suggested any alternative is lesser or that my choice is superior because I really just do not believe that.
Basically, the info was saying “this is why I do what I do, & it works which I’m thankful for and it is awesome”.
I blog for myself but also because I believe support and information are awesome.
To act as though I’m formula bashing is kind of hilarious if you actually know me.
If it weren’t for formula I wouldn’t be here (my mum had huge issues breastfeeding me). If it weren’t for formula I wouldn’t have survived back when Cam was a newborn. How you feed your baby/toddler is only a tiny part of what makes you a Mum.
Yep, I’m being narky. I have had minimal sleep, my toddler has cut two molars and I’ve spent too much time upset about this.
Nevermind. I’m past it. If you don’t like me/my blog/etc you are under no obligation to follow my journey.
Now if you don’t mind, I’m going to go finish editing a more important blog post.
