    I don't think members have turned this thread into a debate A squared and others have offered valid, insightful discussion geared towards the well being of the OP. Heartstringz has received a huge amount of support and advice in all her threads and people have bent over backwards offering online and tangible support.

    heartstringz is a sweetie who wouldn't hurt a fly. Just want to give her a big hug sometimes and I'm not a hugger.

    At the same time I see where A-Squared is coming from. It's a bit like trying to win the Grand Prix in a Datsun 120Y. No amount of advice about using different fuel, tightening the timing belts, driver training, warming up the engine etc is going to matter. You are screwed as long as you continue to try and win while driving the Datto. Only when you sit back, take an honest look at the situation, realise the root problem is you're going into a major race majorly under-equipped, and FIX the issue by upgrading to a Ferrari (?) that you have a snowballs chance in hell at coming out on top.

    Until then in an economic (yep heartless) sense people are mostly wasting their time by continuing to give advice.

    Heartstringz deserves to be standing on the winners podium - hope that happens soon.

    I wasn't trying to debate. I just understood where AS was coming from but also wanted to explain how I viewed the situation, VP's last post hits the nail on the head and I love what atomicmomma has said and think that's great advice. Maybe PM hubbers you admire or post your parenting style so you only get responses that align with your beliefs. I used to PM atropos for breastfeeding advice constantly.

    HS, I'm not trying to tell you to go on meds, I'm just saying what worked for me. I was under the impression that you weren't even seeing a therapist as I'm fairly certain about a month ago you said you hadn't started yet. I'm sorry I've misunderstood your posts. I'll refrain from posting again since I seem to have derailed the thread.

    Hi @heartstringz, just wondered if you you've managed to get out of the house and leave DS with your husband yet? Did he take the bottle?

    Haven't had a chance to go out & leave ds with dh yet. I have someone coming later in the week to give me some tips on getting him to take a bottle & on expressing for returning to work. So will see how we go after that.

    I was thinking the same thing. Have you started back at work yet?

    Hey... Did you have any luck with the bottle? We had a pretty similar experience I think. Severe anxiety, pnd etc. I had a lot of trouble weaning my babies and ended up going to the Ellen Barron clinic over near chermside which is a sleep school (even though we didn't have sleeping issues). I stayed there for a week and the midwives gave me round the clock support to help get dd onto a bottle for me.

    No luck with bottle but he drinks a tiny tiny bit of water out of a sippy cup. Honestly i dont care anymore, dh just lost his job while im on unpaid leave, i have bigger things to worry about. Ill just send ds to daycare with formula & solids & if he eats/drinks then great & if he doesnt then he'll have to just go hungry till i pick him up.
