I thought that I know what is the best for my baby but apparently I don’t. Everyone has some ‘good’ advice how you should feed your little one, what to wear on him or even how to hold him in your arms. Generally I wanted to say ‘F*ck off my baby my business’. Obviously I’m answering like that only in my head because most of this people are my friends and family. What is quite bizarre. They should support me not pointing every fails etc.
I need it!
Everything what I’m writing about (in this post) happened to me on my holiday in my country. I was visiting my family for 3 weeks. They don’t see LP every day. So when they had that opportunity started to pointing out everything whats is bad. What’s quite funny I even didn’t ask them for that. You know I’m a MOTHER. I know my son and his needs.
On the beginning when my sister started saying that my son has too small clothes or his nappy is too tight I only laughed. Does he really should wear clothes for 9-12 month if he barely finished 5? Or maybe his nappy should be so loose that his poo will be always on his back (like with my sister’s daughter)? Why people need to putting their nose in others business?
Than they started to see problem in LP’s reflux. I don’t know where is a problem if he is not loosing his weight and he is perfectly fine with it. But they force me to ask GP if is normal. Surprise surprise yes it is. He can overflowing till 6 months and some babies even longer. Anyway it should be mine problem that I need to change his clothes so often or cleaning his play mat yeah? Obviously it’s my all family’s problem;/
They really tested my patience when started pointing my Little One’s weight. Ok he is not the slimmest baby in the world but I believe that he is not the fattest one. I need to admit that he likes to eat but I didn’t overfeed him what was pointed to me;/ He is quite long as his age and very strong so I don’t see anything wrong that he is little chubby man.
After that couple of weeks I was started feeling like bad mother. But than I looked on my son: perfectly healthy and happy baby who is smiling to me every single day. And I realized that as a new Mum I’m doing everything what I can! Please don’t let other people make you feel like shitty Mum! You are everything what your baby need. And remember that only you and baby’s Daddy can decided about your little precious.
Let me know in comments if you had to listen other’s shi*ty advice and how you reacted to them.
