    Exactly. I was far from a cruel or negligent mother but yet I'm still made to feel like one cos I didn't conform to the norm. I wish they knew the hours I stayed awake with a reflux baby who didn't sleep. The hours I cried with a sick baby or the weeks in hospital prior to having a premmie and a 2 yr old at home .. To insinuate I was cruel and or negligent makes me want to scream

    The whole cruel thing is ridiculous. A newborn isn't going to even know whether his/her mother is in the same room as them.

    Or better yet, don't get offended by something someone has said. You know you're not a cruel and mean Mum. You know why you made those decisions for your family. So what someone else says on a forum shouldn't have the power to hurt or offend you.

    (And yes, I've read it, and yes, according to the poster, I'm a cruel Mum too. I couldn't BF either due to lack of supply and my babies slept alone after the first few months as their noises kept me awake. Someone on a forum thinks that's mean? Meh. Couldn't care a less.)

    This is good advice. We all make decisions based on what works for us. So what if your babies were in their cot from day 1 in their room. So what if you could not/did not want to BF. You are the best mum for your babies/kids/teens. Please do not let anyone make you feel any less of a loving parent because they make different decisions.

    DS1 is the same. Driving me crazy at the moment! Though it is a pleasant change to the constant arguing/shouting/ whinging that he has been doing of late. At least he is happy, I guess!

    Pretty disappointed but not at all surprised at the rate threads get closed around here. I remember the good ole days when we were treated like adults who could hash out an disagreement without threads getting closed/deleted. In the last few days I've seen some threads get heated, but not to the point of personal attacks or the like. When they get closed it's effectively silencing people who have not done anything wrong or broken any rules. I can imagine it's infuriating to come back and find that you can't respond to someone or that all the words you took the time to write have disappeared forever.
    No wonder it's so quiet around here these days, no controversy or slightly raised voices allowed. Makes for a very boring forum.

    I agree. I think part of the problem is back in the good ole days, people would debate the issue. Lately, people just attack the person. Or people get upset and offended on a throw away line or someone's opinion. Sometimes it's warranted, sometimes I think some big girl panties are required.

    I just came back on to see what had happened. Guess that's why I can't find the thread!
