My mate's mom says to me, "You're not gonna be like that mom on Time, right?"
This is right after she asked when I'd be starting cereal, and looked at me like a crazy person when I said I wouldn't be. And, she was also put off by the fact that I still sleep with the baby. Why the hell do you care, lady?!
I love breastfeeding. I hate, hate, hate the judgment. I hate constantly having to defend my choices. I genuinely want to move away from our families, because I'm tired of being told I'm spoiling her, I'm tired of unsolicited, uneducated advice, and I'm tired of people thinking they have a say.
And, what is up with people wanting to watch the baby alone? I don't get it. I didn't have a baby for everyone else. I enjoy spending time with her, and the last thing I want to do when I'm not at work is leave her with someone else.
Am I being irrational?
