I got a lot of crap before Tag was born for my “crazy ways” and “silly ideas”. Let’s remember, I have 5 other kids (and way more that came in and out during my fostering days) yet some people just knew I was making huge mistakes. No swings? No crib? No bouncer? Clearly I am insane! You cloth diaper? Well I’m bringing you disposable anyway, “just in case”.
I’ve done this before.
It’s rude. It’s not “being helpful” or thoughtful. If I say no and you don’t choose to hear my words, it’s disrespectful.
So to all those that did not believe I knew what I was doing, Tag has survived to nearly 7 months old…
Without a bouncer, swing, walker, jumper, bassinet, stroller, or even a disposable diaper!
I have held him, worn him, or set him down on a nice soft spot when needed. I’ve washed his diapers, by hand even, and never needed to use any throw away ones. He has survived!
He is a happy healthy little man, even a little advanced if I do say so myself. (and I do, because I’m his mother)
You raise your baby your way, I’ll raise mine my way.
