I done BLW with my 3 and I tell my friends about it as a lot of people haven't heard of it and wouldn't consider it but what the heck! As if you would judge a mother who sits at home and spends a day making a healthy nutritious meal for her baby to eat!
Ticks me off people think their way is the best way what sort of friend are you.
Rant over with a huff
Yeah the BLW rant and the Fussy eater rant is a bit off. Yes of course the parent of the fussy eater needs to not offer junk food in replacement of healthy food, but you're deluding yourself if you think it is JUST your awesome parenting efforts that have made your kids great eaters. I'm sure it has a lot to do with it, but some children will be fussy regardless of what fantastic meals you offer them, and those parents make do as best they can.
As for BLW as others have mentioned, some babies love it, others not so much. I'd rather my baby receive proper nutrition through pureed foods if they were that way inclined, than keep offering them finger foods that they weren't interested in. My babies both had a mixture of purees and finger foods.
As for something I think but don't say - I'm very embarrassed to admit this, but I often find myself seeing overweight people eat junk food and thinking to myself "if you woud just stop eating mcdonalds you might not be so overweight". I would NEVER say it out loud, and hate myself for even thinking it. Especially when I'm sitting there myself probably eating something worse or just as bad as what they are. It's terrible what stupid things we say to ourselves in our heads. I don't believe it's an appropriate way to think at all, but it pops into my head involuntarily every single time I see it.
i judge blw coz i think it sounds boring and lazy
Once you were old enough to communicate these issues to your parents, how did they respond?? And once you were old enough, why couldn't you make something that you knew you could eat.
I'm just not sure I understand why it took until you moved out of home at 18 to get this under control??
Ds1 seems like a fussy eater to other people, but he has food phobias.
For him eating used to be an awful ordeal and he would gag all the time and couldn't handle anything more than puree until about 18 months. Then certain tastes and textures would make him gag. Even now at almost 8 he will still sometimes gag when he's tired. So now he refuses anything that he doesn't think is "safe" and it makes things very hard.
He is getting a little bit better, but it's been a long, slow process.
So please don't judge fussy eaters until you know the full story.

I wear leggings almost everyday, but I wea them with a shirt that a least covers half my butt, is that ok? Lol, I just can't be comfortable in jeans anymore.
My thinking but not saying is usually about bil and sil- why the heck do you give your 16 mth old a "bedtime" of 10pm? I'm in bed by that time!! And if he's truly not tired before then, it's because he doesn't wake for the day until 9am, which is actually pretty lucky for you, but then he doesn't have a nap until 3pm, until about 5pm.
And sil, do not tell me you're tired! You're as far along as I am, but you nap when bub does, and from what I see you don't cook or clean, or do anything really. I know pregnancy is different for everyone, but really? Come on...
There's a lady who lives a few doors down from my parents place who has 7 children to 5 different fathers and to top it off she's in her early 40's and her boyfriend who just moved in with her is only 18!!
If you saw her ... *shudder*
Seriously how can one not judge?
