It is beyond me how in the world my three children survived their childhood! The pediatricians and media have formed a conspiratorial alliance to convince all of us Baby Boomers that we were horrible mothers.
Today on the morning news, I found out that Mothers that ingest nuts on an everyday basis risk their children having asthma. HUMMM-now let me see-I am the one eating the peanuts, but the fetus or lamb in my womb is the one that will have the allergy and eventually asthma. GREAT-I ate peanut butter sandwiches EVERY day for lunch all three pregnancies. It is a wonder that the little darlings survived that poisoning!
It was not enough that when my grands came along, I was informed that babies should always sleep on their backs. It is VERY DANGEROUS to put them on their stomachs. OK-JUST WONDERFUL! I don't remember ever putting any of the three of them down that I did not put them on their stomach. I believe they told you at the time to do this in case they threw up (NOT VOMITING-IT'S NOT GROSS-IT'S BABIES) while sleeping. You did not want them to get choked in the event that happened. Somehow all three of them survived that neglect also.
About the time that I had # 3, they had decided that it was REALLY BAD for your baby to have any form of solid food before six months. Now let's see, the pediatrician put #1 on rice cereal at a few weeks old. I seem to remember the #2 was a little older, but not any six months old. I am sure their systems have permanent scars from this gross abuse.
This is just a few of the things that we are being told that we did wrong while raising our children. HOW IN THE WORLD there is anyone alive in that generation is beyond me. IT MUST BE A MIRACLE!
