    I used to occasionally read a blog by Rebecca Judd. She strongly promotes her personal midwife who runs seminars. She says every baby should be given a bottle of formula by its dad just before bed at night from the day it comes home from hospital (I think to make it sleep). She describes giving formula as having no negative effects because it's the perfect food designed for baby. She also says all babies should be bathed by dad at 10pm.....!?! Yeah I stopped reading then cos IMO it was a whole new level of crazy!

So much horrible advice out there and mums end up feeling like failures because their babies are being normal babies!

    This 'midwife' really does seem very odd. She very clearly says that this is what EVERYONE should/must do for ALL babies. I also read a post by Rebecca Judd that mentioned that her milk just suddenly dried up and she had no idea why..... Seemed obvious to me but her and her midwife couldn't figure it out?!?
    I have recently been told that I must stop BF because I am pregnant. Apparently it's "not possible" to feed two babies so I'll have to stop soon anyway. I am neglecting my unborn baby by choosing to give its nutrients to its older sibling via the Breastmilk. Me feeding my child is also the reason I have a uti. Yep thanks for all that info......
