I am new to this site and I really like it. Great feedback. I have a few questions and looking for some feedback.
First let me tell you a little about myself. I am a stay at home mom of a beautiful 4 1/2 month old little girl. I breastfeed and will do so exclusivey till she's 6 months then start soilds. I have a wonderful husband who is very supportive.
Now I don't know if I am considered an AP or not. I do co-sleep with our daughter. I love it but my husband has a few issues with it. He no longer sleeps in bed because she is in bed. He is a bigger man and I get concerned that we will roll too much with him in bed. Also he is too sound of a sleeper. He does not hear her cry. For the most part this isn't an issue but he does miss sleeping with me and some nights I also miss sleeping with him. For the past couple of nights he has been trying to have sex and it isn't working because she wakes up if I am not beside her in bed. I don't know what to do about this issue at all!!
My other things about not knowing where I fit in.... I use a swing for naps all the time. It is the only way she sleeps without me beside her, and I need to get some things done at home. I also use a binky.(only to help her drift to sleep when she needs it) I use a stroller because we sometimes walk for 2 hours and my back will hurt for a week from my snugli if I wear it the whole time. I am in the process of getting a sling to see if it works better.
My husband and I do not agree with the CIO meathod. I don't believe in yeling at kids for disapline, I'm going to make her food when she starts sollids. She is number on to both of us and comes before our own needs all the time.
I guess I'm just looking for feedback and introduce myself on here. Thanks for any... oh and I don't get all the abriviations for things either
and how do you get the nice little pictures?
