Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

I hate when I see mothers doing this!!

Laying a baby down with a bottle, propping the bottle on the baby while the baby is laying on the bed, floor, wherever. THEN complain about the baby having bad double ear infections. THERE'S REASON FOR THAT!!

If you're going to bottle feed, fine, go ahead, I did. I never once laid my son down with it, and he has never had an ear infection.
You can prevent your child's pain by holding them upright while feeding them.
You *ones who lay babies down with bottles* are the reason people call bottle feeding mothers lazy, other than that, bottle feeding is harder, IMHO. Washing a bottle, getting water temp perfect, measuring water, opening formula, measuring out formula.. All with a screaming hungry baby.


*EBF moms, please don't call me a bad mother, I had reasons I had to stop BF*

Unless you have a handful of babies and really just can't manage to hold them all and feed them, I've never understood it either. I BF and love it, but I'm pretty sure I would love snuggling up and giving my baby a bottle too. Those are some bonding moments for sure, and they don't last very long at all.

DH did that with both of our kids. It was a waste of him time as he put it.. Pissed me off still.

 I breastfeed mostly, but she takes a bottle from time to time, and when she does, I prop it up so I can get some shit done, which is the whole reason for giving her a bottle in the first place. She's never had an ear infection.

No one ever said there was a benefit. And as old as you are, I'm pretty sure you propped a bottle with your older kids. Now you have a baby and want to act like a perfect mom. Yeah OK.....


Quoting TrouserMouse:

No matter how you spin it, there is no benefit to the baby to have a bottle propped. It is only convenient to the mother. Do you not think that mothers who do not use bottles at all have those same scenarios? They have kids to take care of and household duties as well. Just because people make the choice to do it does not suddenly mean it is a good thing to do.



Quoting Anonymous:

Well there are certain situations where a mom may need to feed baby but is also in the middle of doing something else. Maybe she is in the middle of making food for other kids, or if there are multiple babies and she just wants the baby to stop crying and get fed until she can pick baby up.






Quoting TrouserMouse:

There are pros and cons to breastfeeding and bottlefeeding.







Anyway, it is bad to bottle prop. I don't know why moms don't want to take advantage of those moments to cuddle their babies and lovingly meet their needs anyway. Feeding my baby is a pleasurable experience for me and you those moments don't last forever.

I had 8 kids there was always some bottle propping going on, and only one of them ever had an ear infection, but not from that, from swimming. Sorry but every now and then is not going to hurt anyone.

Way to lose and argument embarrassingly.
