This woman is in for a bumpy ride because she just discovered what she married. He goes on to say that the grocery budget is tight, and since she is still lactating, there is no reason to waste money on baby formula.
A frustrated new father just wanted to vent his anger about his wife's irresponsible behavior but he didn't think that things would go so out of hand.
It all began when his wife said that she wanted to stop breastfeeding their child. He was seeking validation when he told the Reddit community that he thinks that the baby formula money should come from her own spending money since it was her decision to stop using her body as a feeding ground for her baby.
She was "done" with breastfeeding. How irresponsible, really!
All he wanted was people to not call him an a****le for making the tough call because he was the man of the house. But people being people, they obviously had to disagree with the big man.
In his exact words, quoted by Indy100, "I think if she wants to stop for basically no reason, then the money for formula should come out of her personal spending money because she is the one making the decision."
Please pay attention to the fact that it was for "no reason" like she needs to give him an explanation about not using her body to feed her child anymore. As if breastfeeding was a pleasant walk-in-the-park affair.
"She says I'm an a***** and it should come from the family/grocery budget (which is already tight) even though I don't have a say," he added. Having a tight grocery budget is understandable, but shaming his own wife (or at least trying to) is another level of petty.
He said that she had been breastfeeding for six months and wants to switch to formula even though she still produces enough milk. And the only reason she wants to switch is that "she feels done". In his eyes, that's not reason enough. Chaffed nipples, back pain, bruising, the carpal tunnel syndrome and cramping are "no good reason" because why waste the milk just because she is still lactating.
Imagine having a child with a man like this who, instead of finding solutions to this expected change in their lives, finds a way to whine about it in front of the entire internet.
But the internet did not stay silent and instead gave him a piece of his mind for his insensitivity.
take all the food out of the house and tell him to get fed on his own body pic.twitter.com/WOjv0UFPTt— endora bullshit (@collectdust) March 25, 2019
One Twitter user posted gave the perfect response to this.
Another side effect of the post was that the man who made the post deleted his account after getting schooled.
Account deleted within an hour of posting. Impressive.— Kris (@NerdyKris) March 25, 2019
People on Twitter can be savage.
She should invoice him for the hours spent nursing / pumping and take that out of his budget.— weird lex but okay (@lexsaur) March 25, 2019
Wherever he is, he needs to read this to get educated.
+ extra charge for his gaslighting.— Rio Scott 🌈🧜🏼♀️ (@mishaminx) March 25, 2019
And then someone started asking the right questions.
We hope that whoever this guy is, he gets some sense knocked into him about a woman's right to decide what she wants to do with her body.
