I stopped breastfeeding Evelyn when she was 3.5 months. So I’ve had to find other ways to get my up close and personal time in with her especially now since she is on the move. Having breastfed Mabel till over the age of two and co-sleeping with her, I really got my fair share of that precious cuddle time in. That wasn’t the route I was able to take with my second so I started to get serious about babywearing.
Prior to having children of my own I thought motherhood would come pretty easy for me. Hahaha, sucker! I’ve learned and experienced some hard truths since having young kids. There’s no such thing as sleeping in anymore. There’s no such thing as having a private moment in the bathroom. I’ve been pooped, peeed and vomited on. I’ve learned and have got pretty good with negotiating and what bribing is all about too. And that’s just some basic examples.
As a second time mom I’m a much more relaxed version of what I was the first time round. I wish I had told my first-time-mom “self” to ignore everyone’s unsolicited advice, with all their opinions and supposed sincere guidance of what my child should and shouldn’t be doing at certain stages of her development. All that chatter served no purpose but to make me second-guess myself at every turn and cause me undue insecurities.
My eldest daughter Mabel has turned three. And with the big 3 in our sights we knew that would be when we made the transition from crib to bed. I’d been feeling some low-grade anxiety about making this change for some time. And with the comments and pressure of others saying ”I can’t believe she’s still in her crib,” well I pushed all that aside because no ones knows the kind of sleeper we have and why the crib has been so important for us.
