Me at The Connected Mom: 5 Ways Partners Can Support Breastfeeding Moms

“Chances are, if your partner wants to breastfeed she’s going to mention it at some point before the baby is born. There is actually a great deal of preparation, both mental and physical that goes into a successful breastfeeding relationship. You can help your partner, and show your support for her decision to breastfeed by educating yourself about it, listening to and helping her set goals and letting her know that you understand how important it is to her to breastfeed.” (Read more…)

Me At The Connected Mom: Green Washing

“Corporations are listening to us. They are aware of our safety and environmental concerns with the products we use regularly to build and maintain our homes, or feed and cloth our families. But their listening has not produced a large amount of genuinely safe and natural products for us to use instead, but rather a multi-million dollar marketing industry referred to by environmentalists as ‘green washing’.” (Read more)

Me At Accustomed To Chaos: Adventures in Late Starter EC

I am so excited to have completed my first ever guest post this week! Devon from Accustomed to Chaos has recently started a blog series about diapering,  she will be featuring several guest posts from parents who diaper in different ways and has asked me to write about our adventures in Elimination Communication. Go on over and check it out!

“Looking back, I think I may have been a little ambitious about the whole thing. My intention was never to ‘potty train’ my infant, I knew that EC is a slow and gradual process for families, and especially families who decide to get started after their babies are 4-6 months of age. I knew that toilet learning wouldn’t be an overnight success. What I didn’t appreciate is WHY it is a slow and gradual process. It’s not because using the toilet is a learned skill that evolves as children develop (although it is and it does). It’s because teaching a child how to use the toilet is a learned skill that evolves as parents develop.” (Read more)

Me at The Connected Mom

Is it quantity time or quality time that creates that secure attachment we attachment parents are striving for? I don’t know that the answer is simply one or the other, but rather I would argue that quantity time in infancy leads to quality time later in childhood. (Read more)

What is a Pocket Buddha?

The pocket Buddha is a talisman, whether the pocket is in our mind or our jeans, the pocket Buddha is there to add a touch of Zen to our lives. He smiles from his dark penny and used tissue filled abode and reminds us simultaneously to go with the flow of our lives and to keep our goals, hopes and dreams ahead of us. At least one moment everyday, the satisfaction of a project completed, the taste of a meal we managed to make without burning, the extraordinary patience we somehow managed to show in the most frustrating of times, the pocket Buddha throws us a pocket-lint sized piece of nirvana, and for that I am very grateful.
