I let dd have rice bubbles for dinner tonight because I work full time, dh is away and I couldn't be bothered with struggling to get her to eat a proper dinner.
Also I gave her a snack sized chocolate this afternoon because she was cranky and I wanted to cheer her up! Perfect parenting here!!
Oh my goodness, I seem to have found "my people"!
Formula Fed and going to from birth with this next bubba.
Used packet food (rafferties) sometimes....And DS loves tinned spaghetti!
DS started solids at 4 months and was actually ready for them.
DS has abc kids on all day, doesnt watch it all the time but Its there all day as background noise.
DS has a sipper cup of warm milk before bed and still wakes up once a night sometimes for more milk...he's 19 months.
I had an epidural and pethadine.
I wear leggings
I swear just that little bit too much
I dont cook from scratch much
I love Glee!
DH gets up to ds during the night if he wakes up...although DS is quite happy to see dad and doesn't cry for me otherwise I would tend to him.
Ive had soft serves and my fair share of takeaway since being pregnant. Also Including coke and iced coffee.

Ah, I love everything previously written!! I have always thought I must be a dreadful mother after reading some threads.....
Some items are bottle feed, too much tv, swearing on the odd occasion, wine drinker, terrible house cleaner etc etc
Pretty much everything, formula fed, gave my DD solids early, fed her brought baby food, gave her baby yoghurt early, even been judged because I use disposables, Ive always left DD in the car while getting petrol, I always have Disney Jnr on, DD has ipad in the car to distract her otherwise she hates it and im about to forward face her at 6 months, I have a brand new car, DP is FIFO (that gets judged a lot) They can call me a bad mum all they want but every child and parent is different but a lot of people think they know best.
- Formula feeding and planning to FF the next kid too
- sleep training
- ABC2 on more than 1 hour a day
- Fish fingers and oven sweet potato fries at least once a month
- Not baptizing the kids or sending then to catholic school (my mum tries to guilt me about that)
- Different surname to my kids.
But all these things work for our family and I feel no guilt.
Just thought I'd add....when DS was little he had a dummy until 3, a bottle of milk at night until 2, he had plastic and wooden swords and he had a toy gun.
