We do all take it as an insult. Its very clear when as I said, post a FOR article, and people take it to mean I am AGAINST the opposite. EG, I am a pro breastfeeder, so as I am currently breastfeeding my baby I post those articles in support of myself and my current practices, however, I also bottle fed two of my four kids, so clearly I am not anti bottle feeding, but it is always assumed I am.
We do all think our way is the right way, the right way for us, and if it works for us, then it "should" work for others right? You can try not to think that way, but we do. Of course we do, it worked for us.
To be told your way isnt right, or good, hurts. It implies that you arent doing the best thing for your child and could do better. Of course its not always meant that way, but as its to do with the most important thing in our lives, it cuts deep so we react to that. Criticism of our parenting is hard to deal with.
P.S @Marigold there are no rules. You do what works for you. I follow BLW, co-sleep, allow my baby to wean when she feels like it, and try to use natural consequences and gentle parenting techniques, but I have only used cloth nappies on one child, only breastfed two of my kids, and oh I dunno, other stuff. Its all good.

I don't know why in these discussions people always jump to "the perfect mother" analogy. She doesn't exist, every mum does what works for her and her baby.
You are always going to hear differing opinions and conflicting advice. At the end of the day you just have to be confident in your own choices because that's what's best for your family. The opinions of others don't really matter because they don't know your children and what works for them.
I still don't really see what the big deal is over her comments. If cc works for you then meh, who cares what a celebrity thinks. I'll probably breastfeed till my kid is over 12 months, if Kim Kardashian comes out and says that's damaging and wrong then doesn't bother me, I know what works for my baby.

Wasn't Peaches the one whose pram fell over in the street while she was talking on the phone and she didn't even let go of the phone to rush to her baby? Lol.
