bedsharing, knitting, toddler-nursing, nerdy, babywearing mama!
Doctors aren't out to kill you or your children. Childbirth isn't inherently safe. Science is actually smarter than your intuition. Lighten up. Use sunscreen.
That picture is so cute ~ the looks on both of their faces are hilarious!
My baby is also very strong and physical and active, and he loves being held standing. In the Sears Baby Book it even has two pictures of this position under the three month old development section (pp.478 & 483 in my edition). It also says something about how it is safe, and it's a belief from our grandmothers' generation that it causes harm (p.483 next to the picture), so go ahead and do it.
