    I wish I had known how hurtful sanctimommies would be and how almost all moms I know in personal life are to some degree sanctimommies.

    The sh*t I got for not BFing 100% and having had a C-section, ah man. Also the hate and misinformation regarding Dr.’s orders. No, my child doesn’t get traumatized by sleeping in his own bed, bed sharing is not safe, I will only put actual medicine into my baby and do actual physio and not go to the chiropractor and give homeopathy.

    Also I wish I had known how unscientific many midwives are in my country. Guess what, the midwife doing the pelvic floor/birth recovery class (which she is qualified to) is a whacko who doesn’t vaccinate! Wish I had known before I took my then 2 month old to this mother-child class.

    I wish I hadn’t followed the advice to stay home alone with the baby for the first weeks and have no one over. I was so so lonely.
