Hi! I'm pretty new here!
My name's Mary. I'm married to Dallen. We have two daughters, so far! I breast fed until they wean, starting solids at 9 months, then doing baby led, never CIO, bed share for 18(ish) months, and baby/toddler wear. I had just gotten really good at cloth diapering when DD2 decided she wanted to use the potty at 18-19 months old, so I only got about 6 months of that in. :( Looking to do it from birth with the next baby.
Serenity is 3 yrs, 6 months old. She was breast fed until she quit last month. :( She still gets expressed milk in a cup if she asks.
Caidence is 23.5 months. She nurses on demand.
Umm.... Anything else? Oh we live in Gulfport, MS. :) Thanks for having me!
Hello and welcome to MDC! There's lots to like!
A quick caution--if you use your real names, you may want to open a different account. Conversations here are sometimes copied & pasted on Facebook and are internet-searchable. Just a thought.
Hope you love MDC!
I got tired of my signature, but I still love my children and husband and miss my little brother.
Hey, what is 'CIO'? Can I ask for some details on how you potty trained your 18-19 month old? My daughter is 16 months old, and she has decided that wearing a diaper is the most torturous thing in life... so I'm planning to train her soon.
CIO is cry it out. It's a method of baby training.
Umm, she pretty much did it herself. I didn't really do much to help her along except help her on and off when she asked and wiped. I'm guessing using cloth helped her as well as always being welcome in the bathroom with me and her older sister. She wanted to try too, and I just went with it. Good luck!
Ok, cool! I never thought about that!
