Hi everyone! My name is Kristina and I have a 3 month baby girl. As a first time parent, whew, it's been exhausting. I am currently in the Army but have been working on getting out to spend more time with my baby. The Army is not very friendly to AP styles and I have been told by my Sgts that I should just stop breastfeeding my baby and she'll eventually take a bottle (once in a blue moon she'll take one but she really is a breast only baby) among other ridiculous things. Once I get out I plan on making a documentary about AP with a focus on high needs babies.

 

I co-sleep with my daughter and not only is it the only way I would ever get sleep it's also enjoyable. I love having her so close. And I would love to get lots of feedback from families who are just starting co-sleeping and those who have been doing it for years.

 

I'm am constantly bombarded with unwanted advice telling me to let her cry it out and put her in a crib and all babies are the same type mentalities and it is driving me crazy. I am working through kickstarter.com and once I have enough time to put my project together and launch it I will need lots of support to get it funded.

 

But besides that, I will be looking for parents to share their thoughts and experiences with both topics. I will be looking for people who can answer questions and send in videos. I will be conducting interviews with parents and health professionals and just trying for an overall eye opening direction for people to accept that all babies are different and some babies are more "difficult" than others and it's not a bad thing, but it requires a more active type of parenting.

 

So I'm wondering if anyone here would be interested in being a part of this!? Ideas and advice are more than welcome! I'm still new at this parenting thing but I love AP and hope to share how good it is for both parent and baby with the world.
