    I breastfed for too long, till DD was almost 3 years old.
    Co-slept on and off till 2 years old
    Went to Tresillian
    Still let her go in the pram or ergo at almost 3 years old
    Let her eat far too much junk food, shopping = chocolate for her and we go shopping a lot!

    Oh, I forgot about having every hair on my body - leg, arm and pubic hairs - intact...except my head hairs, which are mostly shaved.

    I've had the same bright-coloured mohawk for the last 19 years. Also have a full back-job blackwork tatt.

    Aaah, I'm glad we've all come out. It's refreshing.

    Ok when did having private health insurance and an OB become a bad thing ? Did I miss that thread?

    I was thinking the same thing. I thought that not have those would be a issue like "obviously weren't financially ready/smart/care enough about child etc" weird

    I think it goes both ways a bit. We're on benefits and I only started working about 3 months ago. A lot of people have had a lot to say about us TTC while on benefits.

    Okay, here goes...it's hard to do without feeling the need to justify.
    1. I use disposable nappies & breast pads
    2. I co-sleep most nights with DD2 (3mths)
    3. 8 yo DD1 had a mattress set up on our bedroom floor & is welcome to sleep there when she wants
    4. I breast feed.
    5. If my baby cries I pick her up
    6. Have also signed off on home reader when it hasn't been read
    7. Meals aren't always nutritious, we at least weekly have a "frozen goodness" dinner (frozen processed food that gets chucked in the oven)
    8. 8 yo DD has Barbie dolls, nail polish, make up & her ears pierced
    9. DD2 has a dummy
    10. I am addicted to Candy crush
    Oh, and I own 2 coffee tables. Truly didn't realise this was a bogan offense, but must ask where does one put their coffee, remote control etc, if not on a coffee table?

    Duh obviously having a private OB means you're going to have an induction. epidural and a Caesar and ruin your child's life because of research that says vaginal birth is better. And you're obviously not going to breastfeed.

    Don't you know that you should be seeing a midwife and doing it el natural *rollseyes*

    FWIW I am a midwife in the public health system and have private health insurance and if I felt it nessacery would see a private OB.

    Oh, and DD2 is an IVF baby.

    I've seen loads of negative comments re: OB's & PH, seems lots of people believe both of these contribute to high c/s rates.

    I had all three, without my emergency c/s both my DD2 & I would have died.

    *Formula fed DD
    *Own a strider and love it
    *I let DD play with my phone
    *I have the tv on for background noise all the time
    *I give DD biscuits
    *I wear thongs almost all the time (I have size 12 feet mind you and yes I have nice shoes but they are so uncomfortable)
    *I have a grumbly V8 and have always owned V8's or imported cars that typically are lowered, with good sound systems (good sounding not all bass and nothing else), dark tint, nice exhausts and extractors, big rims and lots of engine work. My current car is still stock however although it is a V8, I'm just not presently interested in doing anything much to it yet.
