    Not that I believe for a second that you care to actually understand why someone wouldn't follow the guidelines but for what it's worth- I had PND with my second baby which was mainly caused and exacerbated by extreme sleep deprivation. I'm a light sleeper. Having my babies asleep in my room would have made that worse.
    So I think saying that you can think of nothing worse than having your baby sleep in another room and saying it is borderline negligent is completely and utterly out of line.
    You seem to be getting extremely upset about Sonja asking why you didn't breastfeed your baby as is recommended by SIDS guidelines, that was out of you control, right? Well my light sleeping and PND were out of my control. Instead of getting so highly offended about what she said maybe stop and think about it instead.

    Can we just not turn this thread in to a fight? The OP asked a question and is probably wishing he hadn't.

    I'm reminded why I took a long, long break from the hub. All the offence and outrage! These posts bring out the worst side of the hub. People getting offended and taking things personally when really, you shouldn't. Who cares what someone on a forum thinks of your parenting decisions?? They are not your friends, not your family. They are a stranger who has a different set of beliefs or different family set up.

    If you're taking things personally, it might be time for a wee break. I've been there. I possibly would have been offended too once (couldn't BF and kids slept in their own rooms from when they were about 3mo) but really, who give a rats @rse what someone says on here about decisions you made for your family that were right for you! My kids are healthy and happy. If yours are, and you are happy with how you are parenting, don't let someone else's comment or their opinion matter to you.

    I read your follow up posts and they didn't clarify anything.
    Stopping BF at 6 weeks due to supply issues is clarification enough that I a) did BF from day dot and b) stopped due to something that was beyond my control and not a choice which are two different things.

    Well..seeing as that's what you think, you probably should have saved yourself the 5 mins of your life you'll never get back posting your assumptions of who I am as a person and not bothered hey??

    .
    BIB - replace 'BF' with 'room share' and try to see the common ground.

    Just to be clear - I didn't ask why blondeinbrisvegus stopped breastfeeding. I think that's no ones business so I wasn't asking. I was only saying I thought it contradictory to accuse others of being bordering on negligent for not following SIDS guidelines without knowing why they hadn't when she herself hadn't.
