You've never been out alone with your child in 10 months?

They certainly aren't helping you any by not sending you into the world alone with your child. :?

I think it's a bit ridiculous, yes. Well, unless you have an issue that makes it very difficult to be alone in stressful situations.

It's not that I care, per se. I just can't fathom not being out in public alone with my kids; to constantly have someone there. I feel like as a parent, you should be able to handle your children alone under almost any situation. You've never had the chance so you can't say for sure you can, KWIM?

Quoting Loka Lokita (17):" I certainly did on occasion once they were older than 6 months. I was a single mom with no family support for a long time, I had to! Otherwise I would have lived in a dumpster lol."

:!:



I run into the same issue with having to clean the house. I'm married, but DH works 6 nights a week, 12 hours overnight (6p to 6a) and has to sleep all day....so it feels like I'm a single mother as far as house work and child care goes....and same here...if I didn't prop once in a while my house would be a pig pen.

No. I do not. But I breastfeed and she doesn't take bottles. :lol:



If she's hungry while we're in the car (which rarely happens because I always try to nurse her before we leave the house) then we either wait until we get to where we are going, or pull over somewhere.

The fact that I no longer have to even consider these types of things anymore is marvelous. :lol:



I hated pumping. I liked the drunk, fuzzy feeling I got but that was about it.
