  • Why on EARTH would you want that? Seriously, it's bonding time for you and your baby. Enjoy it because it goes by so quickly. If you can't be bothered to stop and FEED your child, why did you have them?

  • Geez, the post from Anonymous at 1:09 p.m. is a bit harsh.....Learning to hold the bottle is a developmental milestone not a reason not to FEED your child. Next time try a little kindness, we are all in the same boat here.....

  • I'm certainly not looking to neglect anything having to do with taking care of my son. I am simply looking to help him reach the next developmental milestone because I am thinking in his best interest and not some pathetic woman who needs her child to need her to do everything to feel validated as a human being.
