almost a year old, what type of work can she do?

@1 mo old, she was forced 2 cio b/c it's never 2 early 2 learn how 2 self-soothe (she's so independent) @2 mos, she was sleeping 10 hrs/night-i added cereal 2 her bottle, b/c really, why should i wake up during the middle of the night (so unnecessary) @4 mos i started her on whole milk & finger foods b/c formula is $$$ (someone else has done it) @6 mos i made her start learning 2 walk b/c she needed 2 b more independent @7 mos i taught her 2 how 2 bathe herself b/c i can't b bothered w/things like that anymore @8 mos she knew how 2 change her own diaper, b/c well, it was about time @ 10 mos she knew how 2 use the potty b/c diapers r just 2 darn expensive @ almost a yr, she should b on her way 2 earning a living, don't u agree...with how RIDICULOUS this all sounds! why do some women have kids if they don't want to take care of baby's basic needs (and put baby first)??? under a year old is still a BABY!

  • if it makes you feel better I giggled my way through the whole post and was relieved at the end the find the sarcasem I was hoping was there. That is awsome the way you worded it. I find it is usually first time moms that push so hard I knowI did with mine now I am on my last one and he is growing up so fast it makes me sad. I think some women feel they have something to prove to the world and they forget that being a mom is about the baby not everybody else! thanks for the giggles!

  • i am not going to answer your question because i believe that it is wrong to make any child under one year CIO. ...I make my boys CIO. they are 3 and 4. ...but an infant needs to learn that mommy is always going to be there. self soothing comes later.
    wow.

  • I have to agree with you on this one. Every parent has a different parenting styles and I try to remember that. Sometimes there are mom's that just make ya wonder if they wouldnt of been better off with gold fish.
