I was going to post this on the other thread we have going but I'm too mad to add to that, I think it needs it's own thread
A friend of mine had a baby 2 months ago. Her first baby. She asked me for help with BF with her daughter was a couple of days old. She said she was determined to do it so wanted the help. I know it's her decision and all but less than 24 hours later she poo poo'd all my advice and FF instead. I have nothing against her for FF but she could have at least tried if she was as determined as she said she was.
Ok..That's not the bit I'm mad at.
Over the few small weeks her baby has been here she has had FB status after status bragging about all the help she is getting from her parents. And I mean they stop over days at a time to take over so she can "rest"
today she posts that she and her DH are going on holiday for a romantic break. A week away from their just born baby and her parents are going to look after the baby. I am beyond mad at her. I know it's none of my business but GEESE!!! I told her I can't believe she is leaving her tiny baby and she replied that she will miss her but her and her husband deserve time away once a month. ONCE A MONTH!!!!!!????? I have had time with DH alone once since DS1 was born. And that was just so we could go to the cinema before Tobey was born. I know if I asked both mine and DH's parents would take the babies for a while but not EVERY MONTH. And I would miss them like crazy. I miss DS1 when he goes to to his grandparents for a couple of hours in the afternoon!!
She needs a good slap to reality. Her daughter won't know who she is!!!! I'm so mad. She's missing so many important things in her babies life so she can have holidays!!!
