THANK YOU February 10, 2005 9:18 AM

Thank you all for the kind welcome. I have a few questions about the group it nobody minds? How open minded and accepting is everyone? What other special things do you do with your kids? and are there any limitaions to being in this group? The reason I ask is I tried to become a part of Indy AP (our local web site) And found that most of the women were snoty and full of themselves. I was not given membership because I didnt currently breastfeed, dont get me wrong i am fully aware of the benifits of breastfeeding but after only two weeks of breastfeeding my M.D had me convinced that I want producing enough milk. I was very illinformed as to the art that is breastfeeding. I have great respect for any mother that breastfeeds and extended feeds. I am really looking forward to finally having other mother with similar intrestes to talk to.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

You don't have to be breastfeeding to be welcome here. I do expect members of this group to be pro-breastfeeding, and it sounds like you are. As far as "limitations," comments that would be unwelcome here would be anti-breastfeeding comments, comments that advocate violence toward children, comments that advocate leaving infants to "cry it out," or other comments hostile to attachment parenting.  [ send green star]
Glad to hear February 12, 2005 7:58 PM

Im glad to hear that!

Ok No I dont not in any way condone Child abuse, Anti-Breastfeeding

As ar as letting a baby cry out:  When my son was still an infant I had all Kinds of people tell me "You hold him too much, Let him cry out its good for his lungs" I didnt use detachment devices(Strollers, swings, bouncer seats, play-pen or should I say "Cages") So I was always holding him or had him in a sling.

My fav. comment was "Letting him cry it out could be good for his lungs, but holding him is alway good for his heart" 

So what kind of things do you do with your child(ren)

parents like me! February 16, 2005 12:49 PM

I found this group with a great sigh of relief!  I am a 22 yr old single mom of an 18 mo. old, still nursing.  My daughter and I are a wonderful family together, but other people seem to think that she's "spoiled" for being held, loved, nursed, given lots of one on one attention., and not left to "cry it out".  It is so nice to know that there are parents out there like me!  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
