Kentucky Mom Asked to Stop Breastfeeding

This story makes me so mad on so many levels, I can't even begin to describe how I feel.

I think it's a case of an ignorant person being told by another ignorant person that what this woman was doing was disgusting and perverse.

Breastfeeding is not perverse, it's not sexual. It's feeding your baby and giving your baby the best start that you can.

Beginning to feel the stress

I'm beginning to feel the stress of being a single mom to 2 kids, young kids at that. Zach is a high needs baby and no it's not because I've spoiled him. It's how he is. I'm okay with it some days. Other days it sucks. Like now.

He's stubborn and when he wants what he wants, he wants that and nothing else. I can't do anything without him pitching a fit lately and it's driving me crazy. I used to have help, but not so much anymore.



Dad's dating a new woman and seeing them together so happy makes me sad. I want that.

She has 2 children who are 11 and 12. The girl has latched on to Britt which is fine but at the same time I want her to go away. I want my sister to myself right now.

We went today to take her kids to the painting place. R, Z and I went with them and R painted and had a blast but then he would just sit there and look at my dad like "Why aren't you helping me?" Dad wouldn't even help R wash his hands. Then Z was grumpy like always and I was just overwhelmed. I didn't sign up to do this on my own.

I'm just feeling sorry for myself. I'm allowed I guess.
