Cross posting this from the introduction thread as well.
I've got a little girl on the way sometime around the 14th of October. I am super excited, and have been preparing for an unmedicated birth with doula support at Northside hospital. I've got a monster stash of cloth diapers, plan on breastfeeding, will cosleep with our daughter in our king bed, and selectively vaccinate. I've also currently got a horrible case of PUPPP that is driving me bonkers. I've been a teacher of special needs students for 6 years now, so I feel pretty confidant with kiddos once they're over age 4. That said, I've never changed a diaper in my life, so this whole baby experience is new to me! I've been soaking up as much advice and knowledge as I can over the last 9 months.
At this point I'm specifically looking for thoughts and tips on dealing with PUPPP, finding a crunchy pediatrician, experiences with natural birth at Northside, and how to get to know some other moms in the area.
Looking forward to hearing from people soon!
