I agree with Miriam. Everyone has their own opinion on what you should do. The best advice, trust yourself, and when you feel you need help ask someone you trust. Good luck to you!

First of all, take everyones advice with a grain of salt. I had so many people 'suggesting' what I should do that in the end, I gave up, ignored them and basically just read my Plunket Book, and guessed. And it seems to have done well as my son is now 22months and I have a 7 week old baby girl.



I think the main thig is that when you get people who look down on you or make negative comments cause you're not doing things the way they think you should do, just think to yourself 'screw em it's my kid not theirs' and ignore them. Took me about a year to work that out with my first.
