February 2013 Moms

I love you guys

When I go look at other boards (just checked out the 3-6 month board) I am always shocked by how bossy, pushy, and mean people are. Being a mom is hard enough without everyone arguing with each other!  (like this argument about the EXACT meaning of BLW http://community.thebump.com/cs/ks/forums/thread/74205413.aspx)

 

I just love how everyone here is so chill and always helpful. Even if we don't agree we have that sort of "to each their own" vibe going on. It makes e feel like I can really come here with my issues.

Anyway, you ladies are the best!

  • OMG, I don't even understand what the issue is from that post! The lady said she was doing what she felt comfortable with, so what is the big deal?

    FWIW, I have never even heard of baby led weaning.  What is our board's opinions regarding this? Why is this better? I EBF and plan to do so for as long as possible, so solids are a loooong way off... just curious though!

  • I don't consider the responses to that post pushy or mean at all, but maybe that's because the boards I'm used to are much snarkier with a lot of flaming (besides this one, of course). This is definitely the nicest board I've ever seen on the TN/TB websites.

    lol I didn't know what it was either until I read that whole thing yesterday.  Based on what was said, I guess it's a good thing b/c LO will learn to chew their food rather than swallowing then chewing as with purees.  I guess this is supposed to avoid choking later when they start solids. Also LO is supposed to feed themselves so they eat at their own pace.  That's what I took away from it.

    There were some "know it all" responses though. I mean, nit picking about the definition of BLW? come on, who cares.
