"... I can't imagine what is so special for you to do, that you would leave a 5 month old on the floor crying so you have some "me" time. I understand very well that sometimes you have to walk away to be safe, but then you need to grow up and be the parent and realise he isn't spoiled, he isn't being selfish or manipulative and it is your JOB to get him through these first few months. If you can't then ask a friend, family member or pay someone to help. You chose to have him, not the other way around."
FYI, "me" time means washing dishes and fixing lunch. I went through 36 hours labor WITHOUT pain meds for this baby. I spend 75% of his waking time holding and entertaining him. And most of the time I really ENJOY him. I will not go into the reasons babywearing didn't work, that's a whole 'nother story. He is a fussy baby, and there are days I get wore out. Does that make me so irresponsible???
