Lovin' My Life
I was one of those women who said that I would never be a stay at home mom, I'll never let my baby sleep in the bed, and now here I am- a breastfeeding, cosleeping, baby wearing, stay at home mom!
Once I became pregnant my husband insisted that I stay at home if only part time. The idea grew on me and then I got to the point where I couldn't bear the thought of someone else caring for my child.
I am so happy I changed my mind. I had always planned on breastfeeding, but for only six months-now I believe in Child Led Weaning. I love the closeness to her that breastfeeding gives me. I love to watch her when she eats and know that I, alone, am giving her nourishment.
As for cosleeping, that came about with post pardum! I could not (and still can't) sleep without touching her. I can not sleep without feeling the warmth of my child beside me. I often say that I get to sleep between my two favorite people in the world!
I take great satisfaction in knowing that the decisions I am making in caring for my child are giving her all that she needs in order to be a well adjusted, independent woman.
