After seeing a few threads about people feeling ignored, what is acceptable behaviour on BH, what to name bf and ff sections etc, I feel like we need a warm fuzzy thread where we can celebrate the parents we are, whether we are natural birthing, pro elective c-section, APing, bfeeding, ffeeding, baby led weaning, baby wearing, co-sleeping, baby straight in cot etc etc. parents.
State what kind of parent you are and celebrate it! Lets not let this turn into a debate, or criticism, lets be proud of who we are as parents and celebrate with each other how we all do the best we can!
As my mother always said, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it at all!
So here's me!....
Epidural, straight home from hospital, pro formula feeding, solids/purées from 4 months, pro CC if a last resort (NOT CIO and only if bubs isn't in pain, hungry, hot, cold and is over 6 months old), pram pushing, pro-vax, pro loose routine (but willing to break for a sick, hungry or tired bub), giving bubs tools to self settle, non smacking mummy!
