You are not EBFing your son!!!

Ok, I'll fess up.... I was facebook creeping on this one girl.

Someone told me she had a baby and got pregnant around the time my ex cheated on me. So of course I was curious. Turns out she got pregnant long after that and she's with some other guy. She posted a lot of pro-Breast feeding pics and I thought, "Good for her."

But there was one thing that kinda got on my nerves. She's posted a lot of pictures of her son eating solids since he turned 4 months. Then she said that she EBFed him for eight months. I get that the E can stand for exclusive or extended, but I don't think either applies to her. 

This really pissed me off for some reason. I know it's not my baby and I shouldn't even be creeping in the first place, but it did. I thought it over and I think it stems from all moms who boast about bfing. Don't get me wrong, I'm such a bro boob milk gal. I've been bfing my son for almost 10months, but I don't go around shoving it in people's faces. 

Does anyone else feel this way?

She probably thinks ebf means no formula? That solids don't count?

That stuff doesn't bother me usually.

eh it would kinda annoy me. extended only applies to after 12 months imo and exlcsive well.. thats obvious. I dont see the point in lying its weird.

Stop creeping on your exes, and worse, their partners and ex - partners. It will only make you crazy. ;-) Anything *she* posted would probably irk me.

It's not an accurate statement, and that would bother me too. Technically ebf means no bottles or pacifiers at all if I'm not mistaken. So I didn't ebf at all even though ds didn't have food until after six months and never had formula. He's only 21 months old so we haven't reached extended breastfeeding yet either.

ehhh he was most likely EBF plus solids, she may not know not to give solids at 4 months.  Shes allowed to be proud of not using formula.

you are thinking ecological bfing, exclusive means no formula and usually no solids
