Hi all! I have been in and out of here for awhile, but I have finally decided to join!

I'm Adrienne (30). DH and I just had our first kiddo at home (on purpose) in March. Her name is Anna. We are breastfeeding and I am pumping at work since I work full time. I do get to go home and nurse every day, though!

We are cosleeping babywearers - VERY unusual for my area. I have yet to see another mom wearing a sling, but I get a lot of compliments on mine! We also cloth diaper and will most likely be non-vaxing. We are currently *delaying* until she is 2-yo, but I am pretty sure that by then, we will have decided to forego them all..

I love being a mom!! It was hard at first, but it has only continued to get better and better.

BTW, my initials are A.J. and my DD's initials are A.J., so hence my username "TheAJs".

~ Adrienne

Welcome! Where in upstate? I'm near Syracuse...and yes, I get the weird looks too when I go out with DD in her wrap! I had an older lady come up to me in the store with the funniest comment.."Oh, I thought that was a little dog you had in there!" Not a common thing around here at all!

Welcome to Mothering - cute user name! And congrats on your daughter (and for pumping for her...I'm always in awe of moms showing that kind of committment).

Glad you found MDC!

Yay! More Wayne County! I'm on the Sodus/Williamson border and always up for playdates! DS1 used to have some friends his age he had playdates with but they've kind of drifted (he misses them, but eh) so he's very used to playing with babies - I have plenty of them!
