Are you a bad mom?

From being on cafemom I have come to realize that I am just a horrible rotten mom who should have my dd taken away from me. Why am I a horrible mom?
-I tried to bf, but I had to go back to work when dd was 4 weeks and my milk dried up. So I am a ff.
- Sometimes I put dd DOWN and let her cry for 5 min while I go do something else.
- I feed dd store bought baby food
-I'm not going to erf.
-I use a pacifer
-If dd is constipated I give her juice
and I got her ALL of her vaccinations!

Someone better call CPS and have them take her away now because she's growing well, she's happy, and healthy. But I didn't do it the way you did, so I am an awful mom.

  • I know what you mean OP, I ask SO do you think this is okay or this and blah blah. And he always said you've been on that damn cafemom again haven't you? lol. I do what I think is right, but what is good for some families in not good for all. If you feel like you are doing right by your children then that is good enough. Sounds to me like you are a good mom, just trying to the right thing. Keep on keepin' on!

  • hahah ure not a horrible mom ur a NORMAL mom... i have 2 boys 3 and 1 and theyre both watching tv and eating oreo cookies... its ok to sometimes let the baby cry in his crib to have time for urself... they never got hurt by crying and theyll never remember anyway..i never breast fed... lol it wasnt for me ... and i know lots of moms do the same.. not everyone has time to make homemade baby food which i kinda think is ridiculous..gerber is perfectly fine and so are vaccinations..dont let anyone make u feel like a bad mother.. im sure ur daughter is loved and well taken care of even if she watches like 4 hrs of tv like mine ..those othr moms are prob nuts anyway
