  • Because I want them to be badly adjusted as adults and never be able to bond with anyone including me.

  • Don't get so defensive, don't assume im judgng anyone. I'm not. Be secure with your decisions and answer properly if you are, getting defensive makes you sound like you feel guilty Anon.

  • Because I didn't want to be like my Aunt.. who's 16 yr old son still gets up in the middle of the night to sleep in their room. He's a big baby! She let him co-sleep till age 10 - look at where it got her!!! My kids don't need to be THAT attached to me!

  • I didn't cosleep because I was terrified I was going to roll over and sufficate my baby. I am also a light sleeper so the baby moving would wake me up.
    I didn't use a sling cause it hurt my back.
    I used the cry it out method with sleep issues. It only took a couple of nights but I now get a full nights sleep.
    I did breast feed because that is best!

  • WTF is the point of CafeMom if we can't be "nosey"? We are supposed to discuss parenting issues. That is what this site is for! Why answer a question if you don't like it? I just read like 10 questions about formula and I just passed them by because obviously I have nothing to contribute. It absolutely sounds guilty how some people get SO defensive about these questions.
