2007-11-20T12:35:00.000-08:00

I pity the kids. They are the ones growing up with parents who have no common sense and no sense of humor.
I also think they are protesting so loud because they themselves don't have as much confidence in themselves as they like to appear to.

I'd like to take this moment to tell you how badly I want to see Katie Couric use the term "tit terrorists" when delivering the nightly news.

I was in the middle of constructing my latest post when I was directed to your blog from Motherhood Uncensored. I see we've been on similar pages.

I gave you a shot out because, sister, you deserve it.

And no, breastfeeding is NOT funny.

There are no tickle sensors in my nipples.

;-)

2006-09-08T20:04:00.000-07:00

You didn't get the memo?

"No GOOD mommy is to EVER say anything sarcastic about their child or motherhood in general. EVER. Only BAD mommies who don't love their children do that."

Yeah, I didn't get it either until after I'd been banned from the playgroups.

2006-09-08T10:02:00.000-07:00

you guys should check out Katie allison granju (one of the original tit nazis) blog. she is so damn frickin STUPID. amidst the breastfeeding hoopla she brags about how she cant cook, how she wants her kids to eat ice cream for dinner so she doesnt have to cook, how she is such a (hee hee) bad driver that she hit her neighbors fence, how much the homeless people in her yard annoy her. she also posts reams about her kids personal lives (more proof that people into attachment parenting are boundary challenged???)slander about her exhusband etc etc etc. check it out. it will only confirm any negativity you have towards AP.

2006-09-07T12:37:00.000-07:00

Add me to the breast-feeding challenged. After failing miserably with the first, I swore I would make it work with the second. It did finally, but it took six long weeks of blood sweat and tears. Eight months later she's weaned. I'm glad I was able to do it because the guilt I felt for not being able to do it with the first was overwhelming. THOSE Mommys made me feel that way. It's unforgiveable. Tit terrorists indeed!

2006-09-07T05:41:00.000-07:00

For people like me that failed miserably and quite frankly hated breast feeding-your book made me feel like I was not alone.

2006-09-05T08:52:00.000-07:00

I was browsing my regular blogging reads this weekend and stumbled onto Girl's Gone Child's weekend recommendations, which included your book in the first option. I clicked my happy self over to Amazon to see what it was about and read a few reviews to see if it was a book I'd be interested in. What I found appalled me. So much so that I had to write a post about it on my own blog. Click here if you'd like to read what I wrote.

I had a breast reduction myself which incapacitated my breastfeeding ability. I know EXACTLY where you're coming from. I just don't understand how some women can call themsleves supportive mothers in the same sentence they are spewing their judgmental bullshit.



Yeesh. I just don't understand how people can be ...

2006-09-05T07:54:00.000-07:00

Yeesh. I just don't understand how people can be so narrow minded...regardless of the subject. I wasn't able to breastfeed my firstborn past 3 months, for various reasons, including I didn't know what the he!! I was doing. I was determined to breastfeed the second (and last) and ended up mostly pumping the whole time.

We did what worked for us and my kids never went hungry. That's the bottom line. It's a shame that those psychos can't accept that their way isn't always the best or the right way. And it's a shame that they feel they have to slam you.

Keep on telling the truth. Those with an open mind will appreciate it.

It's unbelievable how opinionated society is in general when it comes to mothers....

I have no time to read. Your book is sitting on the top of my books-I'm-reading-next pile. As soon as I finish The Da Vinci Code. It's taking me forever for some reason. No time, no time....tired.....

Sorry those mothers were so nasty about your book. they obviously have nothing better to do, though...and are pathetic. Seriously.

2006-09-04T15:47:00.000-07:00

I agree. I don't understand why some women are like that. Do they have a giant stick up their butts? Or maybe? The NEED a giant stick up their butts. Who knows. But I think you have done a great job with telling them what's what.

2006-09-04T10:56:00.000-07:00

Amen.

The tit-nazis hurt their own cause by being such fucking nazis about it. There are a zillion reasons why some women don't breastfeed, or don't do it for very long, not least of which is that it can hurt like a mo-fo and be mind-suckingly draining. Mothers need to feel free to make the best choices for themselves and their children - choices that don't always look the same for everybody. Bullying each other sets us all back.

2006-09-03T22:11:00.000-07:00

What is wrong with people???

I breastfed exclusively for 19 months and this is what I was thinking:
1. I wish formula wasn't so damn expensive.
2. I wish bottles made themselves.
3. I hate my husband because he can't lactate for me.

Sure, there were warm fuzzy moments, but I would have had them with formula too. In fact, because other people could have helped with feeding, I might have gotten a wee bit more sleep, and been a happier Mommy and experienced more of them.

So what did I get from those 19 months? A CHILD WHO WON'T DRINK MILK. Every stinking person told me NOT to introduce it because it wasn't necessary. Now every time I go to the Peds I have to put a big fat ZERO in the "ounces of milk consumed per day" box and get a lecture from the nurses. Gee wiz, thanks every one! Oh, and I also spend $5/day on Yo Baby yogurt to keep my 3.5 year old up to speed.

What a bunch of bullies...

2006-09-03T15:48:00.000-07:00

I agree the "boob Nazis" sometimes are not a pleasant bunch.

2006-09-02T22:28:00.000-07:00

Wow. Those are some angry women. Perhaps their chapped nipples are affecting them more than they'd like to admit. They make not breast feeding sound like an act of terrorism.

I haven't read your book, but I will. The stuff they critized from your book sounds like normal stuff any mom would think or say. They must be uber moms with uber nipples.

2006-09-02T17:29:00.000-07:00

Cheers to you, Stefanie. You've got the balls to speak honestly, and that's more than most can say. And yes, a sense of humor always comes in handy.

Your book is still on my Barnes and Noble wishlist. As soon as I order another shipment of books, yours will be in it.

2006-09-02T14:48:00.000-07:00

well I guess I'm a little late to this party, but to ditto most of the comments above - I second you! Isn't it great that there are all these perfect mommies out there who can sit and judge you? Sweet Jesus.

and DUDE - did I see you in US Magazine recently doing some fashion crimes thingy?

2006-09-02T09:29:00.000-07:00

It's so nice to read all of your comments. Obviously the reason I posted about this is it did bother me a little. Not because anything those women said is worthwhile but it did take me back to that place when Elby was screaming and I was crying and feeding her from a dropper to solve the "nipple confusion" and I made the decision to stop. But the more women I talk to who tell me of their similar experience, the more I think women have to be honest, if for no other reason then to make the next woman feel less alone.

It's so nice to read comments from women who "get it" whether or not they breast feed. Or whether or not they even have children!

2006-09-02T07:46:00.000-07:00

Good God what a bunch of self-righteous bitches! I am all inflamed now that I read the link you supplied. So ernest, so beyond reproach what with their dedication to breastfeeding for decades. So much for the milk of human kindness...

2006-09-01T23:18:00.000-07:00

I have 2 things to say. The first is as mothers we are damned if we do and damned if we don't. When my daughter was born and I breast fed, I didn't feel comfortable doing it in public because of the weird looks I got. When she was 6 months old and I switched to the bottle, people (especially old grandma types) gave me the same weird looks I got breast feeding. Sheesh people, I felt like just feeding my baby was a competition. Now, I am an advocate of breast feeding IF IT IS WHAT WORKS FOR YOU AND YOUR BABY. If it doesn't work, then I say bottle feed, as long as you are feeding your baby who cares? Those women on that web site were just mean spirited and have nothing better to do with their time than judge other people. But you know that saying, you shouldn't cast stones when you live in a glass house. People who pick at others are usually miserable in their own lives. Ok enough of that, the other thing I wanted to say is that when I first started reading your blog I was interested in your book but hadn't gotten around to buying it yet (sorry!) anyway, those nasty women gave me the nudge I needed and I am ordering it tonight, so thanks to them! I love reading your blog and I'm glad I ran across it. Have a good one

2006-09-01T17:45:00.000-07:00

What you wrote about breastfeeding was just ONE of the reasons I loved your book. As much as I wanted to breastfeed and as hard as I tried, I could not. The boy was going to starve. I was so hard on myself over it--probably because I felt judged by the frustrated lactation constultant. What I now know is, there is no shame in not being able to breastfeed, nor is there no shame in not WANTING to breastfeed! Whoever is ranting against your book needs to get a grip. Your whole point was about lightening the hell up--DUH!

BTW, I always thought that the boy on Lidsville (Mark who went to the amusement park and fell into the magician's top hat) was a hottie.

I hope you sold many more books because of the negative remarks that website wrote. Any publicity is good publicity, right? H
