Definition of the term "Boob Nazi" according to urban dictionary
1. A person who militantly believes that babies are born to be breastfed, that it's a mother's obligation to give her baby it's birthright through nursing. Strives for education and the destruction of ignorance.
2. Word coined by formula feeding mothers and used in a poor attempt to insult breastfeeding mothers whose success at nursing causes them to feel guilty over giving up and choosing an inferior food.
Like the word "cunt" (ref: "Vagina Monologues"), it has been captured by breastfeeding mothers and used as a term to describe a mother who cares enough to be passionate about giving their children the best and healthiest start in life.
My life story
My husband and I got married on July 28, 2007.
Eight months later we got our first faint BFP on March 9,2008.
We had our baby boy via a drug free water birth on November 25, 2008 at 6:23 pm after two hours of hard labor and two hours of pushing.
He was 10.4 lbs and 21 in long. His birth story is here: http://forum.baby-gaga.com/about451329.html
When Corbin was 14 months old we got pregnant again (first try this time). At 19 weeks we found out that he's a boy! He scared us at first because he was small and weak so we got a 20 week u/s, which we don't usually do. We found out he was small and weak because he had a 2 vessel cord. This continued to worry me right up until I heard him cry.
We had our second baby boy via a drug free water birth at home on October 28, 2010 at 1:00 am after 4 hours of hard labor and 8 minutes of pushing.
He was 9 lbs 13 oz and 21.75 in long. His birth story is here: http://forum.baby-gaga.com/about1409331.html
Shortly after Riley was born, Corbin was diagnosed with Autism. He is getting therapy through early intervention including speech, OT and ABA. We also have him in supplemental speech and OT through private offices and we're looking into hippotherapy and water therapy.
I am a stay at home mom and I'm proud of it. We live on one income because I believe that as a mom, it's my job to raise my children. I spend every moment with my son and won't miss a thing. If that means giving up a few material things and living frugally, I will.
My interests (excluding parenting/birth topics) include: cooking, housekeeping, personal finance, boating, hiking, camping, rock climbing, reading and bubble baths.
WHY WE DON'T VACCINATE
When we were deciding whether or not to vaccinate, I took the list of CDC recommended vaccines and did some research. I looked at every vaccine from every manufacturer...it took about a week of research.
I already knew that I didn't want him to get the flu vax or the chicken pox vax so I crossed those off the list.
Then I found out that they use aborted fetus cells to grow the Hep A virus for the vax. So I crossed that one off because it's against our morals.
Then I crossed off every vax that had mercury or aluminum in them and that ended up being all
So therefore, we don't vax and we are very happy and comfortable with our decision.
I am brutally honest, very blunt and tend to be quite passionate about the things I believe in.
In order to avoid the drama/debate threads, I'll just share my thoughts on some hot button topics in her. You may look if you like, or you may ignore. Either way, it will not change my opinion on anything. I'm sorry if I offend anyone, especially my friends...but here it goes anyway...
I am very pro-life. I believe that life begins at conception; therefore it is my opinion that if you have an abortion, you are a murderer and you are killing your child. You are no better than a parent that kills their infant or toddler. Every child deserves a chance at life, regardless of the circumstances of their conception.
I feel like birth is only natural if it is completely drug free. A birth can be vaginal without being natural. Natural birth is also the safest way to birth, so I feel like it's always
the best choice.
I'm against it. The AAP doesn't recommend it. About 75% of men in the world are uncircumcised and their penises are not falling off because of it. The only people that circumcise are Jews, Muslims and Americans. I believe that it is genital mutilation and cruel. If a man wants to be circumcised, he can always do it when he gets older. If you do it for them when they're babies, they get no choice in the matter. If they didn't want to be circumcised they can't fully restore their foreskin. It's cosmetic, so why not let them decide?
best. I think every woman should give 110% of their effort to breastfeed. Only about 1-3% of women really
can't breastfeed. Formula will keep a child fed and alive. But it's nowhere near as good as breastmilk. It's not even in the same ballpark. Hell, it's not even the same sport.
The AAP recommends breastfeeding until at least one. The WHO recommends breastfeeding until at least two. The CDC and the Surgeon General refer back to these recommendations. I believe in the benefits of child-led weaning. Personally I plan on breastfeeding at least two years, preferably three.
I'm against it. I could go on all day about the hows and whys. I can't let my baby cry for me and just ignore him. I believe that his wants are
his needs. Emotional needs are just as important as his physical needs. I think that people that use the cry-it-out method are just being lazy parents. Parenting is a 24 hour a day job. You don't get sick days, breaks or lunch. Parenting is not just a morning to bedtime job.
