Re: "Bad" parenting or just different?
Ok...now see I totally get the propping thing about eating better like that. When DD2 was newborn if I held her and bottle fed her she WOULD NOT eat. I'd pick her up and put the bottle in her mouth and she'd not even hardly suck and be passed out asleep. So it was very hard to feed her becuase she could take up to 2 hours to finish her bottle. I'd tickle her, undress her, etc. So I found that if I didn't hold her she would actually eat. But, I was right there with her at least so I was watching her eat. Even still when I try to hold her while she is drinking her bottle she will scramble to try to get out of my arms.
