A few months ago I read an article on Associated Content from what appeared to be a frustrated and exhausted new mother. She seemed dead set on AP'ing which is fine and totally her choice, as we all do what we think is best. But the more and more I read the more I felt she wasn't supporting AP'ing as much as she was bashing it.
She complained of feeling tethered to her baby 24 with no break. Not eating because she was constantly doing something for baby. There was even an underlying tone that she felt trapped with not even her husband to help her out.
In other words, it sound like she hated AP'ing. It seemed as if she was only doing what others excpected of her. So I bring the following questions to our readers:
If you are "crunchy" is there pressuer to AP?
Are there downsides to AP'ing?
If you do or do not AP explain why.
I leave you with a link to the article to make your own conclusions about our "test subject" as well.
Let us know what you think!
