My kids are as closely spaced as was possible! After having DD, I was fully BF and didn't use BC. I didn't get pregnant (or have a period) for over a year. My milk virtually dried up at 20 wks and DD weaned at 16 months because of it, so I guess that's something else to think about.
Not strictly true. I rock DS to sleep at night, put him to bed (asleep) in the crib and then when I go to bed later, he wakes up for a feed and stays in bed with us.

DS has been a belly sleeper since he was a few weeks old : He's a side sleeper now, though.

That sounds just as bad as hitting a child IMO- but at least hitting is over quickly! How on earth do they enforce something like this? Ugh, no, don't tell me. I don't think I want to know. I wondered the same thing, but didn't ask. Really didn't want to hear the answer. Quote: It...
Making a two yr old child do their "time out" holding their arms out in front of them (picture how a zombie walks) I find the idea of punishing a child by making them maintain an uncomfortable position absolutely disgusting and yet there are "acquaintances" defending the practice and apparently my opinion is an overreaction and just an attempt to make others feel guilty for a valid parenting choice. I know that obviously spankings and the "naughty spot" are fairly...
