Hi everyone! I've been checking out these message boards for a while but decided to sign up so I could ask questions and tap into the wisdom of all you moms (and dads)!
I'm a brand-new mom to a 1 mo baby boy. I don't consider myself all that "crunchy" but when I was about 2 months pg I found an issue of Mothering and a lot of the things in there resonated with me. It's amazing how you don't even question things until you have to make decisions involving your own child. So...we're trying stuff out. I exclusively breastfeed (well, a bottle of ebm here and there to prepare him for when I go back to work pt), cosleep (weren't planning to but we sleep better that way), cloth diaper, and EC (EC was actually my DH's idea after seeing the letter in Mothering). I'm also trying to figure out babywearing. It would be nice if I could learn to feed him in my wrap, since he's still eating constantly (to be expected at a month old I guess).
I am a Christian, love to read and spend time outdoors, and work part-time in a microbiology lab (when I'm not on maternity leave). I just finished graduate school this past spring.
Anyway, looking forward to seeing some of you in some of the boards!

Welcome and congrats on your new little boy! MDC is great - the more I've hung out here over the past 5+ years, the more I've learned (and the more I've changed).

Good luck figuring out the nursing while baby-wearing....I have 4 kiddos, and never did get the hang of that one (although if you ask in the babywearing forum, I'm sure many members there can offer good advice)!
