Worldess Wednesday: I can't even think of a title.





Can you tell a blog post is coming?

  1. My title would be "What the fuck?!"

  2. WTF indeed.

    "How to forcefeed your baby, like a goose for foie gras" would be one title that pops to mind.

  3. That is HORRIBLE. And frankly, dangerous. There was just a story in the news last month about how a baby died after the father bottle-propped - the bottle continued to leak after baby was finished, and the baby drowned.

  4. LIKE A GOOSE FOR FOIE GRAS. Indeed.

    Diana, that is awful. I honestly cannot fathom this mentality.

  5. Y'all *are* talking about the tapestry behind the couch, right?

    Wait.
    What?

    (But seriously - this makes me think of a Chinese orphanage. So very sad.)

  6. This is TERRIBLE! Do parents really use this? When I had to switch to bottle I tried to make the experience as close to breastfeeding as possible, till my son grabbed the bottle from my hands and insisted on doing it himself.

  7. I am gearing up to go BREASTFEED my 6-week old AND my 2-year old AT THE SAME TIME for the 3rd time today...(which takes about 30 minutes from start to finish per feeding)...so that means that I can't write the diatribe pouring forth from my mind right now...

    But, my question would be: how on earth can the woman in these pics be so freaking BUSY and SELF-IMPORTANT that the 10 minute "job" of feeding her baby is being delegated to a stretched-out, tired-ass, 1980's Flashdance Headband? She must really be needed back at her decorating class right away (today's lesson is how to hang something tasteful up behind your couch)Grrrr.

    Sorry...feeling a little self-rightous at the moment :)

  8. Unfortunately I discovered that some mothers actually do this, without regret. On a women's forum I belong to, some mothers proudly admitted to propping a bottle. When others told them there's a risk of death, they replied that there is a suffocation risk for breastfeeding as well- the baby can be smothered by the breast! :x Doh! *Headdesk*
