@harvs I think there is constant tension between social responsibility and personal responsibility. At various times in my life I shift between the 2. Now my girls are getting older I find myself moving more toward personal responsibility as I want them to take ownership of their actions and behaviours. And I suppose that colours the way I view many of these issues at the moment. I really do think there can be both but we have gone too far to the extent where we legislate against everything for fear one or two people might hurt themselves.

I think PPs suggestions of education around/possibly modifying the guidelines would be very useful here.
I drank a couple of times while breastfeeding and assumed it was ok (not starting a debate about booze and breastmilk, just an example) because I accepted that the guidelines were universal. But maybe for some reason I might metabolise alcohol differently and DS was getting a full shot of vodka? Although if that was the case he might have actually slept! It's not the best example but...meh.

I wish I was someone who hated the taste of wine. I'd save sooo much money 😂

Dont worry, I'm not particularly upset by it. I knew my point of view wouldn't be popular in BH land from the beginning. I'm only still posting online as I'm a bit bored tonight as all my friends are doing fun things and I'm home alone pregnant with two sleeping children.
Gah! What would I do for a bottle of wine now!

I'm dying for a glass of port. I haven't had a proper drink since I got pregnant with DS almost 2 years ago! I looooove port! Sorry I digress

have you had any glasses of wine whilst pregnant? a lot of ladies I know will have a sip of their husbands/partners glass which I think is totally understandable. once I'm out of the first (worst) trimester I'll prob have the occasional sip too.
as someone who drinks fairly regularly otherwise, I must say the forced break from wine is refreshing. I'm enjoying it. but I also miss it. a glass tonight would've gone down a treat.
chocolate will have to suffice!!
