I was curious to see if any mums on here are from Australia, im from Victoria and it seems not ONE person i have spoken to has any idea what Attachment Parenting/Genlte Parenting is..
It may be just where i am from everyone seems to practice CIO : ( it breaks my heart to hear people talk about it, i want to help educate people on the damaging effects but it never seems to work. Lazy parenting seems to be the craze here at the moment.
I counted up the other day out of 25 mums other than myself (yes i was bored!) with babies under 1 only 3 breastfeed.!!
Im am so shocked by this and i know that there was only 2 who medically couldnt. i had asked the rest why and they had no reason other than this is easier i wasnt making enough milk.. but in saying that they only fed for a week. i do not judge formula feeding women i just thought it was amazing the amount of people in my town that i know who didnt even give it a go.!
I need to buy a new Carrier/ Sling and wanted a good one where he can sit on my hip he is 7 1/2 months now and about 9kg/ 19.8lb or a bit more was weighed last month.
Elimination Communication... has anyone tried this and what results did you have? my son is 7 1/2 months i was thinking of trying this. any tips?
Thanks For reading : )
