My hubby and I had our little guy at home in the morning on 10/20/12- he is our first. We have been sleep sharing, cloth diapering, baby wearing and breastfeeding. I am excited to have found a community where I can ask questions and share our mile stones.
The majority of our family and friends think the choices we are making will either end up with my little one being hurt (first because we chose a mid-wife assisted home birth and now in our bed) or turn into a super whiny, clingy child because I do not let him cry to calm himself down/ put himself to sleep/ or wait to eat. The rest of our network think we are "interesting."
I have tried to be unplugged the last few years, so please bear with me as I learn the shorthand and forgive me if I do not use them all the time.
