What people think about your parenting style or life choices?

Nope! I do what works best for our family. I've gotten lots of unused advice but I let it go in one ear and out the other.

Nope! I feel like I've done enough research and had enough experience that I am comfortable with my choices. Now it does feel nice to be complimented on my children by complete strangers

Nope! But I sometimes feel like I'm in the minority in my community. Most people don't CD, baby wear, BF - let alone EBF -, etc around here. My neighbor has a baby girl who's about 6 weeks younger than Peyton and we are complete opposites, although she is pumping, but not sure for how much longer. I usually just don't talk parenting things like that with her, or others who aren't "like me" because I feel weird about it sometimes. DH always calls me a hippie lol

Depends who. I would probably feel bad if it was my Mom, others not so much.

Lyndsey, I took time not to care as much . My Mom and Sister thought bf'ing was gross and that formula made for happier babies. The had many different ways so it was do it solo my way or give in. Since I really wanted to bf. I had to not care. Luckily I had strong women role models as coworkers who were cpletely in favor of breastfeeding. In 2 weeks I am taking a class to learn how to use a woven wrap. They would find that crazy. And they thought women should be done having kids by age 30. Yep, just turned 40 . I know having a baby at this age was perfect as it gave me our Ellianna .

i'd like to say that i dont care but i really do. especially if it's family, or someone i am close with. if i dont know the person i really dont care but if my mom/husband/brother/etc have an opinion i do take it personally.

I don't want too but it's hard not to let it get to me. I sometimes feel like I need to justify my parenting.

Yes, I do care. That doesn't change what I do, but I still care what other people think.

I do care. My kids are my whole life. I don't have a job, I am not going to school, and I really don't have much of a social life. If the ONE thing I devote all my time to gets criticized, I take it to heart. I really do. I wish that wasn't the case but that is just who I am.

I do care. I wish it didn't bother me when family thinks I should do things differently have other opinions on parenting. It doesn't make me do things different though. I'd say it makes me more mad than hurt. I think they should just keep things to themselves unless I ask for their advice.

I do care even tho most of the time I ignore the advice and do what I want to. My sil is the worst. she always tells me what me or the kids should be doing. She doesn't even have kids. She is pregnant now tho and is due in june so I cant wait to see how her kid is and how she parents.

It depends on the person and what they have to say. I'm open to hearing people's thoughts and suggestions. I will do what logically, sensibly, and practically is best for my children--and sometimes what other people share with me helps me learn what those things are. But do I care in the sense that I will feel bad if people don't like what I'm doing, just because? Nah. They have to more than opinion to sway me
