I just found out that my friend bought a Boba after I suggested it! And she actually came to me for breastfeeding advice!!
She is not into AP or natural parenting at all. She's not a horribly detached parent or anything but just does what everyone else does that's mainstream except CIO. With her last baby she only BF to 3 months (her first was to 9 months) because her baby was going through a crazy growth spurt at 3 months. The baby was cluster feeding every evening & she was upset thinking that she was starving her LO. So she took the LO to the pedi who told her she should put the baby on cereal & formula because she just wasn't getting full (IDIOT!!). So that was the end of BF for her. When I found out I cringed but didn't say much. She just had a baby about a month ago & I brought up growth spurts. I just kind of put it in general conversation about my baby & how she was so crazy during growth spurts. Before her new baby was born I texted her to & nonchalantly told her if she ever needed any BF advice just ask me.
Well, she texted me about her LO going through a growth spurt & I reassured her that everything was fine etc etc.
Then I suggested that she get a Boba because back when our middle kiddos were babies we were wearing them in crotch danglers (before we knew better-I know I know). I told her how comfy it was & how great it is while having to chase after a toddler (our middle kids are roughly the same age). So, instead of bombarding her with info on how what she is doing is bad I just made the Boba seem really great LOL!! Well, we just saw them recently & she had the Boba. I helped her figure out how to use it.
I was so excited! I know I can share it with you ladies & you would get it lol. I was actually kind of surprised because I figured she saw me as the crazy, crunchy friend & wouldn't take my advice lol. When I suggested the Boba she never said much or told me she got one lol. Anyways, Yay! I love helping to educate people :)
