Yes you heard it here first! Ha ha! This is my official you've been kicked out email, along with my response:
You have launched a personal attack of me on many threads in the past days. For this reason you have been removed from the group. It would have been appropriate to send me a message to discuss your concerns. I will revisit this issue in 10 days with you to see if you are willing at that time to adhear to the guidelines of circle of moms. These guidelines are listed under the guidelines tab at the top of the page.

a moment ago Well maybe you need to look at your attitude in your posts. I suppose you feel all-powerful to be able to remove me and prevent anyone else agreeing with me.....which you might see that they have! I just one moment ago recieved a message from another within the group saying that they agreed with me on your attitude. Have a look at my post within Jesseca Ali's coversation as to why she left the group.....a woman's decision to breastfeed is heavily influenced by the people who are advising her and if the people who are advising her are completely without compassion, as you seem to be at the moment, it becomes very discouraging and you are more likely to give up. Could you have not given the mum of five looking at going on vacation a bit more credit for what she has achieved in breastfeeding rather than calling her selfish? You are all about child-led weaning and such, but you have one child a little over a year and have not yet come across this hurdle. You have limited REAL experience in the department and yet tell others in no uncertain terms how to conduct their relationship with their child and what is and isn't appropriate. I'm so sorry but whatever chilhood education and lactation education you have does not make you an expert. Real expertise comes from actual experience! Think about this before you respond, but I would love to hear your response!
I wonder how this will go down!
Kerry I hope you dont mind me mentioning that you sent me a message, I didn't mention your name.
