I would have said to "not" feed them but after I delivered my babies, the Feeding Consultant visited my room to tell me about it. Its a good thing too because until that moment, I had no clue. So my answer is that I fed them because the FC told me to.

I do NOT feed my child. She has to learn to support herself SOMEtime, right? Anyone who feeds their child is coddling them and setting them up for failure later in life.

I fed my kids solid foods in a bumbo chair sitting on an ironing board as soon as we got home from the hospital.

I hired someone to feed and love my child. They fed her formula. Like foxfire, in a bumbo next to a hot iron, unsupervised. The heat helps with digestion. Besides, the milk curdles next to that amount of heat. Perk - all my shirts were straight, even after I let the kid sleep in them in a hamper.

OMG! That's what I did too with my first. I had no idea we had so much in common besides our name! By the time #2 came along I learned that pixie sticks trick about cancelling out abuse, so to be safe I just threw them on the living room floor (like I already explained in THAT thread) and if Ds#1 shares some with Ds#2 great. If not - well sucks to be him. It is a little hard for Ds#1 to reach Ds#2 in the bumbo on the ironing board but it's good for his problem solving skills. He hates to hear the crying so he breaks down eventually & builds a stack of wobbly toys up high enough to get up there & do it.

I don't care enough to give my kids those fancy shmancy pixie stix, but sometimes I'll pour them a bowl of sugar and then add red food dye so it resembles a liquified pop tart. That helps their creative thinking, to have to imagine which processed food I intended the bowl of dyed sugar to be. I let them wash it down with a bottle of Karo syrup mixed with Red Bull while they watch Disney princess movies and play with toy guns.

Forget breast milk or formula. I just gave them straight Dr Pepper in their bottle. And as I was too busy watching soaps and eating bon bons, I propped the bottle.

You people and your new ways of raising children. I went old school with Billy and added my own twist to it. I asked for bottles of brandy at my baby shower for teething pain relief. Then I thought wth! I can use this stuff for feeding him. I have been so blessed, not only did he drink it, he slept like a champ. I am still trying to figure out why he is still wobbly when he walks though.

I'm pretty new age. At first I thought not feeding would teach Lily to be independent, but then my friends told me I *might* get in trouble for that, which is dumb because I'm her mom and I know best. However, I did some research and come to find out, feeding your kid is recommended by most doctors, and statistics say that feeding your kid has a lot of benefits. So yeah, I chose to feed.

Dude starvation is the only way to go. You get these little buggers to do ANYTHING if you starve them first then bribe them with a bag of Cheetos.

pffftt who needs smarts when you can teach them how to be pretty (or pay for it if they're not) and have everyone else pay their way...

So much easier than using your brain to get by.
