I just found this site and started joining some of the communities and thought I would introduce myself! I'm 22 and I have a 6 month old daughter named Olivia. I'm a stay at home mother and I take classes online. I'm hoping I'll be able to get some advice every once in a while if I need it! Olivia is my first and we are kind of learning as we go. Right now she is on no schedule (I have no plans on putting her on one, I don't want advice on that, I get enough flack for it already!) She is a very relaxed baby and she thrives better without a schedule, she eats when she's hungry and sleeps when she's tired. I also let her nap in bed with me. I guess in that sense I'm sort of "non-traditional" and I thought I would throw that out there to let everyone know my parenting style! Olivia is just starting to crawl and is teething and is starting to sit up on her own!

Congrats on your little girl! I love the name Olivia. My baby girl, Veronica is now 14 months old, it feels like just yesterday she was starting to crawl. Now she runs everywhere! I also started out with no schedule and co-sleeping. I find that she will nap at around the same time everyday, I just have to watch for her signs. I can say, as she started the cruising stage of development, she started fighting her naps, that was tough. Now she is back to taking good naps without a fight (for now anyway). It's nice to have a few breaks during the day, now that she's so active.
What a joy it is to have a sweet little girl to look after at home! It's such a blessing to be able to be a stay at home mom! Enjoy it!
