    Are we now judging people with different names to the norm? A name she didn't choose?

    She's 25 with 2 kids, sounds like a bit of judgement on young mothers too!

    Definition of CC in the Oxford dictionary; a technique for training young children to fall asleep on their own, in which the child is left to cry for gradually increasing periods of time before being comforted.
    It is not the same as CIO but I would assume that different parents have different definitions and limits for how long and loud they let their baby cry for?
    TBH Marigold and beebs I think you are in the minority for letting a tired whingey cry be the limit.

    Peaches is also obviously from a different country so who knows whether the socially accepted definition there is different to here.

    Yes, that's what I meant.

    Loads of people have cc, I'm pretty sure they all wouldn't do it the same?

    Most people who do control crying, would find a source that shows you how to do it step by step wouldn't they? They wouldn't usually read the dictionary and just do it? My nanny at the time thought the CC route would benefit the twins. Because one of them would never sleep and the other was always woken by him which equalled two really overtired bubs who where both very grumpy. To be honest I'm not sure I would have done it if I was on my own, it was hard. But it really worked for us, so I'm glad we did.

    Yeah because she chose her own name when she was a baby.

    The definitions (vague as they are) are the same in the UK as here.

    I still just object to her saying women are built to breast feed, that's what we're made for. I couldn't breast feed, now I feel like I have a faulty body that's not doing its job right. Thanks Peaches!

    I can see why that would upset you. I had massive issues feeding DD2 and honestly, I feel my body failed me.

    But, I can see what peaches is saying... How often do we hear that breasts are for feeding? Like I said earlier, every public BF thread that pops up on BH, someone says, what's the big deal, boobs are for feeding etc.

    At the end of the day, breasts are for feeding.... Just like our bodies are made to give birth... But it doesn't always work out that way. My body failed me massively in the birthing department, but I still understand what a woman's body is meant to do. Not saying that woman are only here to have babies and feed, but you know what I mean. And I think that's what peaches was saying. She bottle feeds so she isn't looking down on people who don't BF!!!

    And Peaches was annoyed in the other interview that has been spoken about in this thread (not the one my OP was based on) when her AP style was misleadingly described and mocked. She is doing the same now herself, even if her remarks were genuinely/innocently mistaken.
