I'm pretty sure the people who thought the world was flat thought that view would NEVER change. I am also certain that the MOST intelligent people in the world are the ones with open minds whose opinions can and do change according to information that becomes available to them. I will let that statement speak for itself.
I can't think of anything my view has completely changed on but I have become a lot more aware of, and tolerant of, things I wasn't before. The childcare one for SAHPs is an example, although I still think there are issues with it relating to availability for working mums (which I believe is more important apart from in the case of health issues).

I don't think my views have changed very much, I've learned a lot more about the myriad reasons people formula feed, which I knew little about as almost everyone I know breastfeeds.
There have been HEAPS of topics over the years that I knew next to nothing about, and now do have an opinion on, I love learning new things, and hearing peoples experiences with certain situations. I think BH has made me become more flexible in my thinking, and more accepting of other ways of doing things, which can only be a good thing.
I'm much more an advocate of 'whatever keeps you sane' now, since going through life threatening PND.

On one particular topic I have. I sometimes used smacking as a form of discipline. In one thread about a year or two ago there was a debate. A member wrote that if her partner hit her she would go straight to the police so why on earth would it be ok to hit someone half our size. That resonated with me sooooo much!!!
I have also been a bit on the fence on some topics, but thanks to Bubhub have more of an understanding and a stronger view on some things...

I can only think of one, which is circ'ing. I always thought I'd do it if we had a boy, because DH is done and had stated he wants his boys done (if we were to have them). Since reading a lot of threads on here about it, I have done a hell of a lot more research and changed my tune. Just thankful we're not having a boy because I'm not ready for that fight with DH
Apart from that, I don't think I've changed my POV on many topics, but I've become much more open minded, and more willing to listen/do further research.

I think it's just cemented my opinions more than changed them. I used to be a bit meh about a lot of things but now I'm very passionate about them! Especially now I have my own future baby to consider!

Yes, when I was pregnant there was no way no how I was going to let My child sleep in my bed!!! And he didn't at first, happy to sleep in his cot next to us...... Fast forward 7 months when he started teething.... I did a complete u turn after reading positive things on BH on co sleeping. Fast forward 3 years.... He's still in our bed I'm so glad I changed my view as I'd feel so guilty if I'd have be persuaded to use CC or CIO like some of my friends did.

Yes and no. I'm less likely to air my opinions on certain topics because of my views. I.e circing. I dislike the practice but I also know that's more of a western view, I guess. It's hard to explain. A lot of topics get debated from a western world view and I think it's counter productive to some degree. Obviously we kind of can't debate it from any other view point. I try and keep in mind though that that's what I'm doing and act accordingly and debate accordingly with as much respect to that culture as I can while still getting my views across
