So today while doing house work I turned on TLC and had to stop myself from screaming at the TV during 2 episodes of A Baby story and 1 of bring home baby then a second episode of Bringing home baby came on and I thought ok I will give it a chance, it was acutely a breast feeding cloth diapering family, it was so refreshing.

Yeah I'm not so keen on those shows (I see too many doomed women too much of the time so I stopped watching them), but TLC (or may Discovery Health) has a show called House of Babies about a midwife-run birth center in FL. They do almost all water births and frequently have shows where siblings are present during the birth. It's really nice to see!

Not in your DDC, but I also scream at those TLC shows! And yet I keep watching them. What is wrong with me?

Ohhh, love House of Babies. Shari Daniels is cool and there have been episodes where her midwives are babywearing and her daughter was talking about extended nursing and delaying solids

opps -- totally crashing in your ddc

Must be the ONE family they have - you know, to "even things out" - like that. I can't watch those shows, makes me SO angry... it's really bad.
