Although I agree that Breast Feeding is better, I dont agree with this statement here. I HAD
to bottle feed. And my daughter is as healthy as anybody else's kid. She's been to the doctor ONCE for some puking...has never had an ear infection. And has only had ONE cold. So, I must say I entirely disagree with you on this. But that's a whole other topic.
So today her mom brought the baby into work. He is so tiny. He's got so many scratches on his face. My neighbors were not with her. And I was like "hey you gotta get some mits on this baby..he's scratching his face up pretty bad." She understood.
Well news is....Thier house is TERRIBLE! Cat pee everywhere, trash..etc. Her mom said she was not allowed in that house with that baby untill it was spotless. So they hired a cleaning crew to clean the whole house.
Which is going on right now. For right now she's staying with her mom.
Now here's the kicker-
She said to me "We're taking those cats to the humane society tonight."
And I was like "OOooo no you're not, my MIL will take them." (my MIL had already thought about taking them before)
and she said "yes we are...My husband is taking them tonight."
So AS SOON as I got home, I called MIL and she went straight over there and now she has them.
2 little calico babies. So adorable. MIL isnt sure if she's going to keep them, as she has a friend that wants 2 calico's. So either way, I kept them out of the shelter, and to one of two good homes.
Well for now..It seems her mom has things under control with the house and the baby. But I was in awe that my neighbors were not with the baby when she brought him to work. I guess the mom is taking care of him untill they get things straightened out at home. Wierd.
I didnt leave my kids side untill 6 weeks after she was born. It's just wierd to me. I feel relived her mom is helping out.
