So yeah...I drank soda while pregnant, I breastfed only the first month would have done it longer but it stopped coming out completely and nothing I did worked to help my milk supply come back, I prop my babys bottle sometimes because hes huge and it kills my back to hold him, hes 7 months and is forward facing already because he wouldnt stop screaming in the car otherwise hes weighs 22 lbs. He basically looks like a two year old.



Eta: my son does know how to hold his bottle just refuses to...hes a bit spoiled...I have a hard time holding him because I have psoriatic arthriti. I am in no way lazy. As I mentioned in one of my replies I didnt realize ff was so dangerous until I joined this site. It wasnt that his crying bothered me more like I would panic while I drove and he was crying then I wouldnt hear anything...His car seat will be changed to ff as soon as I can figure out how to keep him calm...thank you to those who were genuinely worried and didnt bash. And those who did I really hope you all are as perfect or wonderful mothers as I read you to be...God bless!!!


I NEVER SAID I BELIEVED I WAS A BAD MOTHER I SAID CAFEMOM MADE ME FEEL LIKE ONE SOMETIMES. I LOVE MY CHILDREN VERY MUCH AND WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES...BUT I UNDERSTAND NOW HOW BAD THE FF IS...

A seven month old who doesn't hold his own bottle? My son was brandishing his bottle as a weapon by the time he was seven months old.

Stop forward facing your child! Why are you totally disregarding safety?

If he is upset maybe the straps are not in properly. Or get a different seat!!!

Well the first ones aren't that bad. However, the bottle propping can kill him as well as the forward facing. My children screamed too but I learned to deal with it. I would rather have alive children than dead ones (and I don't want any tickets).

Why doesn't he hold his own bottle?  Is he handicapped?

Wow, I don't fault you besides forward facing him.  Try putting a dvd player in the back seat at least.  Holy hell.
