    Areca - same. Or the answer to 'will you EVER breast feed' became 'nope, never, might be a bit annoying when he leaves home having to drop EBM off to him, but we'll make it work'

    Lol.

    Now he is weaned it's so freaking tempting to just keep telling MIL he's still feeding if she asks.

    Birth reference I'm guessing relates to her having a section which some do not consider to be 'a real birth'

    my phone inky showed the first bit (no wink) and I'm like WTH not from booby surely

    A real mum brings her child into the world and loves it with all her being. This can happen any number of ways and regardless of how you birth (or even if you don't)* if you love and raise that child you're a real mummy

    * adoption/ surrogacy relationships as those mummies are very real mummies too even if they didn't birth that child themselves

    Here here! I'm adopted. My sons are the result of "unnatural" gamete donation. They have three parents and six grandparents. I birthed "unnaturally" with the assistance of medicos and forceps. Total interference with nature in our household. Oh and I'm in an "unnatural" gay relationship. My mother is a staunch. Catholic. Perhaps that explains some of the opposing views we have.

    I did put a star to cover adoption surrogacy etc.. I didn't mean to offend you

    Eta lol oh agree with me disagree with them :handshake: less confused now sorry, I had gay grandparents and they were lovely some of my favorite people/ family members to visit. I still have friends that are gay/ transgender and hopefully one day I'll be a surrogate for a lovely (male) gay couple I'm sorry your mother can't see the beauty in any relationship/ family that is happy and blessed with a loving partnership maybe one day shell come around.. As for birth.. We do what we have to, all that matters is that you're ok with your experiences

    NO not me! Lol. As a c-sect mummy that'd be a pretty self loathing thing to say!
