Unconditional Parenting Chapters 5+

I finished reading UP awhile ago and I just now have a chance to write about it. The first few chapters where difficult to get through because it is such a "culture shock" for lack of a better term. Now that I've read the whole book I am completely IN LOVE with it! I love how the author including so much research to back up his philosophies. I am so happy that I read this book.

THESE are the videos they should make you watch in the hospital!

When I had Calvin there were a bunch of videos that every new mom is required to watch before leaving the hospital. Shaken baby syndrome, how to bathe a baby, carseat safety etc. WHY doesn't that carseat safety video include anything like this? If they would show these videos in the hospital and/or in birthing classes it could save a lot of babies. Just had to vent about this somewhere.     If this wouldn't make people think nothing would

I am so glad for WTE and BBC. I probably would have never heard the term "extended rear facing" if it wasn't for those groups. I'm so glad I did and so glad that I researched it when I realized it was a term I wasn't familiar with.

Continued diaper sewing attempts

So far I've sewn a total of 4 diapers. I have gotten better with each try but they are still far from perfect. I have tons of fabric to make more including tie dye, space monsters, and light blue plaid :)
