What I Believe: Co-Sleeping and Crying It Out

Share

I believe co-sleeping is the best sleeping arrangement for a nursing mother and newborn baby. Mother gets more sleep and therefore is able to operate at a higher-functioning level the following day. Baby gets all the milk he needs during the night, along with the comfort and security that the womb used to offer. He […]

What I Believe: Circumcision

Share

I believe that circumcision is unnecessary. When I was pregnant with Olivia, I did not dedicate a single thought to the topic of circumcision. If you would have asked me, I would have said, “Why of course we would circumcise our boy! It’s just not healthy not to. And besides, it might hurt his self-esteem […]

Hey, all! I feel refreshed enough, having two consecutive weekends at home, to be able to say with confidence that I will be posting a What I Believe post next Thursday on the subject of circumcision.

What I Believe: Our Children are Over-Medicated

Share

I apologize for the lateness of this post! My baby Benjamin is sickly and has needed my undivided attention these past few days. Thank you for your patience! ~~~ I believe that the school-age children in America are over-medicated. It is not that I believe that their problems do not exist. On the contrary, I […]

What I Believe: Babywearing (And a Giveaway!)

Share

I believe in the benefits of babywearing. I believe that the sling is better than the playpen, the wrap is better than the exersaucer, and the pouch is better than letting the baby fuss on the floor while I try to get something (anything!) accomplished. Having said that, I want to state that we do […]

What I Believe: Coming Friday!

Share

You heard it here first, folks. My next What I Believe post will be this Friday (hopefully before midnight or I’ll be a liar). Part two in a who-knows-how-many-parts series. Specifically in the area (nay, the art) of babywearing. Slings. Pouches. Maya wraps. Moby wraps. Benefits. Drawbacks. You name it. And to commemorate this honorable […]

What I Believe: Natural Childbirth

Share

I believe that natural childbirth is best. I believe that the female body was created to give birth. We were not created to be cut open so that our babies could be through a man-made hole in our abdomen. We were not created to need the assistance of synthetic hormones to push labor along. And […]

What I Believe: Coming Monday!

Share

I have finished my What I Believe: Natural Childbirth post!  But rather than post it immediately and catch everyone off their guard, I’ll wait until Monday.  Why so long?  Because I already have a post planned for Friday (How to make your own baby wipes!) and no one checks my blog over the weekend anyway. […]

What I Believe

Share

I will be starting a series called “What I Believe” and I plan on addressing parenting issues such as breastfeeding, co-sleeping, natural childbirth, circumcision, cloth-diapering, and babywearing, but I will definately not limit myself or anyone else to those subjects. What I have to say is not necessarily best for everyone. It’s just what I […]
