Husband kept asking me "Are you really going to sign up for that junk?".
Why yes, yes I am. Yes, I did. I signed up on the StrongMoms community. And because I signed up they are going to send me up to $329 in membership gifts, offers and infant formula and coupons.
I mean - REALLY???
I am pretty sure that when you hit the 17 month breastfeeding mark your not going to decide it's time to switch to formula. At least I know I am not about to. Breastfeeding is best choice for me, and I am studying to become a breastfeeding counselor so I can help other women fulfill their breastfeeding goals. Breastfeeding is something I love. I really do. It's something I am passionate about.
And I think that is partly why I signed up. I want to know, I want to see, what promotional offers formula companies are making. What incentives to not breastfeed they are waving in women's faces.
So yeah... I joined a formula feeding community. I feel like a wolf in sheep's clothing, however I highly doubt I will ever participate in their conversations, and I have selected all e-mails to be sent to an account I use for junk.
Sigh.... it's a dark moment. But it makes me smile.
(In other related new I also got a letter from the GOP soliciting a donation. I am a registered Independent, and with liberal-green-libertarian left leaning views. So, um yeah.... this letter also made me think "really???")
