Who knew there were so many controversial subjects?
I'm not just talking about politics (but I am glad that my "ring" is politics free - because I am afraid of what I would type & how wishy-washy I would sound - but don't those in the race sound a bit wishy-washy themselves?)
I am also not talking about oil & alternative sources of energy...
Rather I am talking about Mommy stuff.
Here is a list off the top of my head of controversial Mommy stuff - feel free to add more in the comments section or in an e-mail - I need to be prepared - I am apparently going in to this Mommyhood thing a bit naievely...
V@g!n@l (don't want trollers to find something that they aren't looking for) vs. C- Section (planned - not emergengy)
V@g!n@l with or without an epidural
Bre@st or bottle
Cloth or Disposable diapers
Pacifier or not
bumper pad or not
co-sleeping or crib
Not unlike many other controversial subjects there are some seriously hard core opinions on these subjects! Most of which need to be made ASAP
I always knew that there were options, but I had no idea about the "You don't love your baby if you do or don't do 'x'" hardline stances of some of these "Mommies."
For example, my mother bre@st fed her two children - I am not sure if there was any discussion on the subject or not or whether she did it because "that is what you do" or not - meanwhile in the same decade, my husband & his brother were bottle fed... Does that say anything about either of our mothers? We both survived...
Just some drivvel from the ever sick Mommy of almost 1. (Who has made some decisions about the list above - but my choices don't really matter - they are just that "my choices.")
