I love talking to other women about all things baby related. I am a VERY open person and am willing to talk about anything. I have told Capri’s birth story in great detail to friends and whoever will listen really. I talk about breastfeeding and will feed in public. I always tell my friends that if they ever have any questions to feel free to ask and they know that they can and that they will get a straight and most likely a very detailed description for an answer.

I love to talk about “controversial” parenting methods. Sometimes I think I am a walking controversy. I breastfeed, cloth diaper, babywear, co-sleep, plan on doing baby led weaning when she starts eating, we plan on actually waiting until she is at least 6 months until we give her solids….ect.

When I tweet something it goes to my facebook which then fills up with comments because what I do is “different” from what the “world” does (and when they say the world they mean North America). But I love to talk to people about it and share my points of view. I am daily learning more about different methods of raising my daughter and I take things very seriously and research EVERYTHING and do not just look at one page.

So where I am going with this is that sometimes I think I should just be a mommy consultant and hire myself out to talk with moms throughout their pregnancy and first year or so with their babies. I am pretty much a walking Google search engine (oh how times have changed since we said we are a walking encyclopedia). I love helping other people out and letting them know that they are not alone. So many times I think we become embarrassed by all the changes our bodies, minds and souls go through when we become pregnant, give birth and try and get our bodies back to normal while also trying to be a good mom. I know that when I find other moms willing to be very open and honest it really helps.

Thanks for reading, commenting, and sharing.

  1. Or you could just become a Doula. I’m going to take the training at some point (maybe even next year if things work out). I’m the same way, I talk a lot (er…some might say too much…) about everything baby/pregnancy/parneting related….and I’m outside of the North American norm with my parenting decisions too….and I kind of like the controversy/discussions that causes.
