Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

Omg i want to scream!! UPDATE

My sister is driving me up the freaking wall! Her and my mom came for a visit and took us to go do baby registries and to just chill for the weekend. Now my sister is at that age whe she is always right. It drives me insane. We were scanning stuff into the registry at a store and i wanted to scan a nursing cover that i liked. My sister, filled with attitude, asked why i needed one. I said for when i am in public or someone is visiting, if the baby is hungry, i can feed it descretely. She went on a rant about how i dont need to be feeding the baby in public, i just shrugged it off.

Then my mom was talking about rice cereal and if i wanted to register it. I told her that i didnt want my baby to have any because i heard bad things. And that i planned to make my own baby food. My mom thought it was a great idea and asked what was going to make. My list included avocado, bananas, and carrots. My sister again went off about how avocados arent good for you ( i know right?!?) and i shouldn't feed my kid that. Again, i just told her the facts and shrugged it off.

Then, she started disciplining my dd, who was confused because she had done nothing wrong. I got pissed. She has spent the entire weekend whining more than my four year old. She complains that my dd is addicted to electronics. Dd played on my ipad for 3 hours, tops, this weekend in 10 minute increments. YOu want to know what my sister has been doing for the last 8 hours? Leeching my wifi and playing on her phone, not exaggerating she has spewed off so many "facts" about child care, 90% of it wrong. She wants to tell me how easy it is to raise a kid. She is neither married, or out of mommies house, never had a boyfriend,nor does she have kids. Want to now how she knows about child raising? She used to babysit, oh and she has a dog. There is sooo much more, but this is too long already.


Ugh.......is there such a thing as justified assult.



UPDATE. Well my mom was asking where i learned to make my own babyfood. I was showing her those videos on babycenter. She thought they and the articles were great. She came across a video about a natural birth in the water. I told her thats what i had wanted to do. My sister says "but they would drown!!" Tha fuck?

Then off to the side the word VBAC caught her eye. She asked what it was. I told her it stood for Vaginal birth after cesarian. She went on and on about how unsafe it was. I informed her that many people have great success with it and if their doctor thinks they are a good candidate for it, they should try if they want to.

I just looked at my mom and told her that she shuld put her in a class or something. And to not let her give her friend pregnancy advice.

I love my family, but only in small doses



Sorry for any typos.

Also, many sources will tell you that avocado is a great first food. Babies need fat. It is acually recommended in place of baby rice cereal.


Quoting paganmommy4:

There is nothing wrong with baby cereal.. Avocados are too high in good fat for babies.. Try peaches, and other fruits

See, what do I know.. My youngest is two, so I have no clue anymore.. And I'll still give infant cereal, and feed my babies at 3-4 months

It is considered bad, avocados are actually a recommended first food.

Quoting DarksMama:

There's really nothing wrong with cereal as long as it's not in the bottle by the time they are 6 weeks old. LOL

I would think avocados would be a tad hard to digest for a baby...maybe closer to a year old though.  DD never would eat it. Can't blame her. I hate the fuckers. LOL 

And seriously...your sister needs a clue-by-four upside her head. LOL

Congrats on the boychild! I'm getting one too. :)

Hey thats your choice, not mine. If you want to, i say go for it (except giving them so,ids that early). This is just what i plan to do for my kid. I was clueless my first two times. This time i have been googling like crazy!

avocado is an awesome food for babies and is often recommended as a first food...my twins thrived on it. Baby cereal is processed and has absolutely no nutritional value...do some research

Yeah I don't have younger people telling me all that, but my mother and other older family members do this. I can not stand it.
