Ugh you are disgusting! I'll continue to meet the needs of my daughters and love on them as they need. You go on being neglectful and treat children like a burden. I hope someone hasn't made the mistake and bred with you and if they have I feel such pity for your children.

@RachelHumphrey Babies have nothing but needs, not wants. A baby should be fed before they cry. There are a multitude of cues before it gets to that point. Violence comes from needs not being met and being pushed aside. Children and babies need love and attention. They are small humans desperate for someone to be there for them. A baby is incapable of manipulation, they really do need their moms that much.

THANK YOU! There is only so much one can do to calm a screamer. My daughter had reflux so constantly, and I mean CONSTANTLY, nursing made her feel better most of the time. There were those days or nights or weeks where NOTHING would make her happy. I would get maybe 30 min to myself a day without her nursing, not an exaggeration, and it wouldn't be enough for her. She'd be worn everywhere and slept on my chest since she had to sleep on HER tummy for the reflux. I did have to put her down in her crib several times and just walk away. I'd go outside and walk around or cry or scream or just plug my ears and sing loudly so I could have a few moments of not hearing her scream. Parenting is all about the good, the bad, and the ugly. The cycle slows down as they get older, but the first couple years can be rough.

To the nurse that decided not to listen when I told her not to place the IV in my wrist, but in my arm: I HATE YOU! I have permanent nerve damage in that area of my arm now. Thanks.

To the nurses that kept telling me I needed to stay in bed since I was delivering 6 weeks early, but in the same breath telling me I had 18 hours to have her otherwise I'd have an emergency c-section: I HATE YOU! I didn't listen to your stupid "advice" and whenever you left the room I stood right up. That helped me progress better than the stupid pitocin that I "needed" to have even though I was 5 cm dilated at only 4 hours into my labor. My FIRST FUCKING LABOR!

To the OB that "cranked up" the pit because I was stalling: I HATE YOU WITH SUCH A PASSION!! Thanks to you it put my daughter into stress and required me to have an amnio infusion. You also required her to be on oxygen for 3 days and THAT didn't allow me to hold her til she was 24 hours old. I hope you die the most slow kind of death. I was "stalling" because you scared me!! I was 21 yrs old having my first baby. You think you could have been nicer?

To the nurse that wanted to give me a catheter before I "had to have an epidural since I was too stressed to dilate anymore": I told you what you could go do with that damn thing. "Go F*** YOURSELF IN THE A$$ WITH THAT!!!" :) So I chose to stay in the bathroom, on the toilet, for the hour it took for that stupid cocky anesthesiologist to stroll his happy ass into the room. Pretty sure that was when I stopped "stalling" and opened up a good 3 cm.

To the nurse that saw how racked with pain I was in 20 min after the epidural, which did NOTHING for me, and shook my shoulder and hips as I was groaning and crying: I love you! Thank you soo much for seeing I needed help with something! My daughter's father didn't do a damn thing to help me. You were the ONLY one that did.

Lastly, to my night nurse, day nurse, and lactation consultant: I LOVE YOU ALL MORE THAN I CAN EVER SAY!!! You three women were the rocks I needed through that horrid time. You fought for me to hold my daughter as soon as possible, to learn how to use her feeding tube, to nurse her, to helping me learn to pump, to getting me a pump from 20 miles away at 3 am, to crying with me when I had to start giving her milk fortifier in a bottle, to letting me room in as soon as she was off the monitors, to everything you helped me do. I am forever in debt to the kindness and love you showed me. You never ONCE treated me like some dumb kid, but rather a young mother who REALLY DID KNOW WHAT THE HELL I WAS DOING! You fought to help get my daughter on the right track and made our hospital stay only 1 week instead of the 2 or 3 that were threatened with.

Thank you thank you thank you for posting about piercing guns NOT being able to be autoclaved! The girls that work at the mall that pierces ears has NOT gotten her Blood Born Pathogen training as well. Soo dangerous! IF someone feels the need to pierce their baby/child's ears go to a reputable tattoo/piercing shop. The hollow needle is COMPLETELY sterile. The jewelry, a captive bead ring, accommodates for swelling AND is much easier to clean/turn/ etc. I have performed a lot of body piercings and have ALWAYS told others of the danger of mall piercings. My little sister in law, who was 15 at the time, told me that she NEVER had earrings last more than a couple months due to infection. I pierced her ears and she's never had a problem. In fact, we did a second hole for her a year later and again with no problems.
