Looks like I can add having a child with behaviour problems to my list of worries or potential failings as a mother. I’m not disputing breast is best but I’d like the person who wrote this pump 7 times a day for ten weeks, get up in the middle of the night to feed the baby then pump for the next feed every 3-4 hours, maybe they’d change their opinion!! I love the bit about better educated women breastfeeding more (awesome now I’m stupid too!!!!!) Some women CAN”T breastfeed, don’t make us feel bad for that!!!! Sorry for the rant, my guilt of not being able to breast is still bubbling at the surface!!

I wasn’t going to post today but as I’m here, I’ll bore you all a wee bit longer!! I checked LPV’s immunisation card the other as I know he has his 12 months jabs are coming up, shock horror!! The dreaded MMR, I honestly thought I had at least another 7 months to prepare myself for this. Before I had LPV the logical thinking nurse inside me was adamant that my child would be vaccinated against MMR, now the highly strung protective mother isn’t thinking that logically.  Especially after the magazine launch that I attended a couple of weeks back, the talk on Autism terrified me to my very soul. I know we will probably end up getting it as there is no solid evidence to prove that the two are linked 

(their words NOT MINE).

However I’m sure that there are mothers  out there who would beg to differ and who can blame them??

Not sure why I’m telling you all this, however the world does know everything but my Bra size of late, psychologically it makes me feel better putting my worries into cyberspace, hoping that if they’re out there they won’t be in my head!! Nor do I want to scare people either, so sorry if you weren’t worrying but now you are

    The immunisation debate makes my blood boil! We now have diseases that have been gone for decades making a come back in Australia because stupid people refuse to immunise their children. The latest epidemic is WHOOPING COUGH! The doctor who originally came up with the idea that immunisations are linked with autism was actually barred from practicing medicine as his allegations were totally unfounded. I have no patience with mums who won’t immunise their kids, I think its child abuse. That is just my opinion. However, I do know a family who have 5 children, the eldest developed complications after being immunised and she does have autism, they could not link the two together, but the parents STILL immunised their other 4 kids. If they can do it, why can’t the other stupid mums out there?? And that is my rant for the day!

      I know it’s madness that all these diseases are back, we will immunise but it doesn’t stop me worrying!!
