Yes, I know its been ages I should be shot I completely agree with you. I have been making some changes to the website and that my friends is why I have been MIA, but I am back don’t fret Temi is here lol and to make up for my absence I am going to put up 3 posts yay us.
Today has been quite traumatic for me because Kunmi is ill! My baby boo has diarrhoea (insert hot tears here), I actually spent a couple of minutes this morning crying because if my baby is ill , I have obviously failed as a mother. Please bear in mind if you judge me God will judge you lol. Now being an FTM I wasn’t going to take any chances I called my mum who is even more paranoid than I am and we decided we had to go the Clinic.
Fast forward to the clinic , and our lovely paediatrician (plenty, infact many sarcasm) comes through and she asks if I breast feed exclusively and I said NO because I don’t. Breastmilk to Kunmi is like Dessert he never gets full on it , plus he won’t take boob juice from a bottle so my amazing double breast pump is gathering dust till baby number 2 , if I decide my womb needs some use or my lack of contraception catches up with me.
Oh boy! this woman and her second judged my destiny , they went on to talk about how I even give Kunmi the expensive formula , did it stop there oh no she went on to mention the baby oil on Kunmi’s hair was too much , I wanted to tell her , her lips were the size of my face but you don’t see me complaining about it.
She then asked when he started raising his head I said very early by 4 weeks he could hold his head she called me a liar and she said that it was impossible, at this point it was only thought that there is no AC in Kirikiri prison that stopped me from strangling her.
After she called me a Liar and a disgrace to humanity , she gave me a prescription for ORS solution and sent me packing , I was in shock by how judgmental and unapologetically rude she was.
I really would like to know if this behaviour is normal , do people freak out when you tell them your not breastfeeding exclusively? What has your experience been in Clinics? Please comment and let me know.
PS: The picture is Kunmi holding his head up at 4 weeks
Till next time,
