Beyond pissed off.
After reading about a mom that was given the WRONG BABY to breastfeed after she gave birth, I couldn't be happier that Lucas never left the room we were in when he was born. He was in my sight at all times. People were commenting 'milk is milk' and 'let it go - no one died.' I can't believe these ignorant assholes! (pardon the language.) I mean really??? How would you feel if you carried your child for 40 weeks, went through the pain of giving birth and then the hospital not caring enough to pay attention and give you YOUR OWN child to feed?? You don't know what that other mother has done, what diseases she might have, and for her to breastfeed YOUR BABY is so beyond wrong! I never did it, but it's an emotional and one of THE MOST bonding experiences anyone can ever have. This has happened 3 times in the past year!?!? What the hell? Really???? This just pisses me off so much and I couldn't be happier that nurse got fired for this. How can anyone possibly make a mistake like that? — feeling furious and protective.
