Plus, I do not like clingy(sp) kids. I had the cords cuts at birth and I do not want them growing back....KWIM. My niece and two nephews were bf and so clingy to their moms to the point it drove me crazy. My kids are pretty independant to some point and I love it. My sils are all asking me what did I do to make them independant. I tell them they were not attached to me at the breast all day for a year and made them do things for themselves. (different story) I am just afraid this is the kid that will be attached to me and I will never be able to cut the apron strings when time comes.
