Yep, laziness definitely has its place in parenting.

As I was reading the posts supporting my laziness, my 3-year-old got tired of waiting for me to pour him a new glass of milk. He climbed up on the counter, grabbed a cup, got the milk, poured it without spilling a drop, and put the milk away.

That is exactly the advantage of laziness. Of course, he will now be stunted because you curbed his creativity ;).

That's why I breastfeed. I'm too lazy to mix bottles. ;-p

The ultimate of laziness--breastfeeding and co-sleeping.

I don't think guilt is necessarily unhealthy.

Same here, especially at 3AM or 7AM for that matter. Not happening.

No, I agree and said as much. If it genuinely warrants guilt, then change it.

My middle child preferred room temperature bottles, and when my third got a bottle, it didn't cross my mind to warm it.
