So, even as I type this, I am getting bitched at because I've been watching our kid all day and I want his daddy to take a turn so I can get a break. My father in law, of course, is saying me breastfeeding is the reason my husband is lazy when it comes to his kid. Um...really? You wanna know why I breastfed in the beginning? Because my husband did not want to get up and fix him bottles. He was colicky and hardly slept the first three months. I did not have the prescence of mind to get up ever two hours to fix bottles.
Elliot nurses twice a day, if even that. And yet, my breastfeeding is why my husband is lazy? Yeah, that makes perfect sense. I should know better than to open my mouth in this damn house. I can't say a damn thing here without getting yelled out.
Oh, and apparently breastfeeding is "wrong." I watch our kid, by myself, all day because he goes to work with me. I can't trust anyone in this house to watch him while I babysit. So, explain to me how I am in the wrong here? I don't understand why I am the one who gets bitched at.
It's my body. If I want to breastfeed, I am damn well doing to. It isn't anyone else's damn buisness what I do with my son and my body. I know he is almost two years old and I am trying to wean him. It doesn't help that NO ONE will help me with him during the day. If mommy is there, he is going to want the boob and I am not going to sit there and let him scream while I'm trying to watch the other kid I'm babysitting as well.
Oh, and did I mention the fact that my husband brought up the idea of having another kid when my son turns two...which will be in three months? I do not think so. I am staying on birth control and I am NOT having another kid until my husband grows the fuck up and starts helping. There is no way in hell I would be able to handle a two year old and a crying newborn. No thank you!
