But I've been meaning to post something like this for awhile since this general feeling has been going on for some time. I think it's just because I've been reading too many pregnancy books recently and I was already a little sensitive because I'm really alone in my family and friends and even to a certain extent complete strangers in my area(and of course on the internet).
I am a formula feeding,not by choice this time but probably in the future it will be and a c-section when we have baby number 2 elective c-section mother. I know double whammy and I am really tired of people assuming that I'm either selfish or illiterate(while English was never my best subject I read just fine thank you) . I'm also really tired of feeling like I have to justify my reasons(aka tell long sob story until they stop giving you the stink eye) for either one to complete strangers or family for crying out loud. I recognize that in most cases the alternatives are best for baby physically(I wish people would take mental more seriously for Mothers but they don't so whatever) but most and all are very different words with different meanings.
Just my two cents I wish all of you the best in your choices no matter what they be and wish for the same respect that's it. Who's with me on that we all deserve our choices respected? Heck bump if you believe in not being called a child abuser for legitimate parenting choices.
I feel the need to be anonymous with this kind of post because they just get too emotional and it feels like just a teensy tiny bit of a way to avoid the comments feeling so personal, it's purely a psychological reason but it works for me.
