So my SI Lcan't make it to my baby shower. We live 10 hrs apart. She sent me a gift anyway. It came to today. This is what it is.

A pink basket full of shit.

Infant meds...I won't be vaxing I don't need that. I know she put that is there because she hopes I change my mind.I will use other methods I will use oatmeal baths, luke warm baths, only a shirt and diaper on, and rag on forehead.

Gas drops...What??? Do they give your baby gas???? Don't like chemicals. Will use bycycle kicks and rubbing the tummy.

Diaper rash cream.....My baby won't be siiting in a diaper long enough to get a rash.Will see a dr to figure out issues. Will see what my dr wants to do. The 1st thing I would do is find the issue and fix it. 

Baby Q tips. again WTH Don't want to stick anything in my baby. I will use a rag and my nail. 

Med spoon..again no need.Won't be using meds no meds again. 

a baby bath sponge. No way I will use that. Making own wash will switch everyday nogerms

Baby lotion shampoo and wash.....No way I am using that stuff. Making my own. Won't use lotion If need be I will make my own.

Plus a bunch of other stuff.


I can tell me are 2 diff types of moms.She doesn't mind chemicals and poisons.

Yes I am a 1st time mom. Due in May. I see nothing wrong with what I want. I am not stupid.


For all of you saying that I don't know what I am doing and I am just a new mom......Well so were you at one point. I will not use meds, chemicals,poisons, or anything that could hurt my baby. I am not some young chick who doesn't know anything. I have read read and read some more. I know that my baby will be healthy and smart and caring. 


BTW this is the letter she sent along.

Dear S,

I am deeply sorry that I can not make it to the baby shower. I hope you have a great time and enjoy every moment. 

When I had my baby my favorite gift was a basket full of care products. I got so much use out of the stuff and still have the basket today. The basket comes in handy for storage and holding little things. B(her son) keeps alls his crayons and such in his. 

I hope you like it has much as I did.

Love,

J,D,and B. 


For those of you saying how horrible I am and how wonderful my SIL is. You could not be more wrong. She things everyone needs to be like her(hence the gift). For some reason MY family just things she is greatest thing. She is just a bitch.
