and wiped with our savings account.
So freaking excited!! 6 new covers, a swim diaper/rash guard/hat set and a pair of snappis.
I was talking to my grandmother the yesterday about pretty much everything but mainly baby Eli. She asked me if I had started him on solids and I went on my rant about not starting solids until at least 4 months and pushing it until 6 months. She then told me that when she was having babies (between 1949-1956) that the doctors recommended giving baby cereal at SIX WEEKS! What?! For some reason that horrifies me. I know my dad and his generation grew up to be a-ok but at six weeks a baby’s little stomach isn’t prepared or capable of digesting things other than breast milk or an appropriate substitute like formula. And besides, at that age baby cannot hold his own head up to eat the cereal which poses a major choking hazard. It just absolutely baffled me.

That’s what I’ve heard! And since we want to get pregnant relatively soon I’m not sure it’s even worth it to start.
If you’re a babywearing/cosleeping/breastfeeding/clothdiapering/blah blah blah parent you should reblog this
I need more blogs to follow ^_^
Everything except for cloth diapers ;)
Same as above! (Although I WISH I could cloth diaper)
all of the above.
Everything but I can’t cloth diaper till we’re in our own house.
No co-sleeping here but everything else! Love me some fluff butts.
What method are you using?
I’m currently using the Nexplanon implant but I hate it. I’ve been spotting for three months straight and at this point I’d rather have a full period every month than spot every day. Breastfeeding limits my options and we want to get pregnant next summer so I don’t want to start something that takes too long to get out of your system.
So, what do you guys do and how do you like it? IUD? Depo-Vera Shot? Mini-pill? Condoms? Pull and pray?
-wince or make an obvious face showing you don’t like it
-say “well, i like _______” or “you should’ve picked ________”
-give her reasons on why her child will be teased
-tell her stories of “well i know someone with that name and they are fat/ugly/weird/unsuccessful, etc/”
