Hello!
I'm thrilled to find a holistic forum for mothering as I am a brand new mom to a 2 week old DD, and have only been living in VA for 2 months now, having moved from CA. Everything feels new these days and my answer to most questions these days is, "I just don't know."
Is the baby hungry?
I just don't know.
Is the baby tired?
I just don't know.
What do you want to eat?
I just don't know.

I'm exaggerating of course.. I know my baby and I and DH are learning each other. I know we're learning what she needs and we're trying desperately to give it to her.

I suppose I sought out these forums because her fussiness is concerning and I want to speak with other mothers about what they do and how they feel and does anything work?!

Peace & Health to you all!
Tree

Holistic nutritionist, WAHM, new mom of first DD 08/29/10 and a precious baby due 2/13/12!

Welcome to MDC! And CONGRATS on your new little one!!!

I was like you when my oldest was born. We moved across the country when she was two months old. And I became a SAHM. New little one, new state, new life. I know what you are going through! It is all so exciting (and difficult but fun and happy too!)

I agree with the PP - post questions about fussiness in the Life with a Babe forum. You'll get lots of good responses.

Hiya! Hope to see you around Life With a Babe!

"A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bank balance smaller, home happier, clothes dirty, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for." ~A.U.
