#ParentOn with your bad self. hehe.

When I was pregnant with my first born. I took everyones advice and really just saved it and stashed it on my back pocket. As she was getting older I started to realize that what works for other parents, doesn’t mean its going to work for me. 

I had to learn how to do things my way, and even though they may not have seen great to others. It worked for me, and thats all that really mattered. Fast forward a few years later.. and two more kids to the record. I feel like I’ve got this under control. While I was pregnant with both boys, I received so much heat about our co-sleeping. Such as : 

“It’s not good for your baby” 

“Your baby will be spoiled and want to sleep with you forever”

“It will cause marital problems” 

I ignored them all and just did what worked for us. I breastfed my youngest and the only way I was able to get any sleep was laying down with him and nursing him. Again, it may not be something other moms do or did. But thats okay! This way worked for me and I was happy to get some sleep and be able to feed my baby. 

Do what works for you. Your Parenting skills were born the day your baby was. Us parents aren’t geniuses babies don’t care how bad we mess up. We just learn along the way. Thats how we become the parents we are today. I consider myself the worlds “okayiest mom” hehe… and always remember to #PARENTON

  1. My husband’s cousin, who did not have children at the time, advised that I give my firstborn child cereal in his bottle to make him sleep better. This does NOT work. I’m 3 days away from my 4th c-section and I pretty much don’t listen to anyone now.

  2. I had a visitor when I was feeding my son a bottle. They encouraged me to keep letting him eat as long as he would take it. He threw it all up as they pulled out of the driveway.

  3. Dawn Monroe says:

    My great aunt seemed to believe all the old wives tales. The things she advised me ranged from not taking a bath while I was pregnant from whiskey for teething. I think she actually believed the baby would drown if I took a bath.

  4. I recently had a family member try to tell me when I was suppose to feed my son and that I shouldn’t be feeding my baby every 4 hours. Of course I didn’t listen to her.

I love me some comments, speak your mind.
