  • What has most helped you when raising your baby? Here's our list:⠀⠀
👶🏼 Trust your instincts. Nature designed you and your baby as the perfect team. Use your awareness to guide you. 👶🏼 Use a snuggly sling. For optimal development, newborns need almost constant physical contact. Most babies will show this by crying when you let them down. Being busy people, we need our arms free and slings become an invaluable tool. ⠀⠀
👶🏼 Sleep with or near your baby. You’ll both get more sleep comforting each other.⠀⠀
👶🏼 Ask for help. This is the time for you to put aside any worries about asking for help and simply ask for help! We all fall short occasionally. Whilst your baby is taking almost all of your attention, don’t forget to look after yourself too. Make sure you let those that love you know what you need. Whether just help with folding washing, making dinner or walking the dog. Don’t feel frightened to ask for the help that you need.⠀⠀
👶🏼 Get support. Find groups of who practice similar ways of parenting. Don’t underestimate having like minded folk around you to share life with. Community is necessary when raising them.⠀⠀

  • “Listen to me, your body is not a temple. Temples can be destroyed and desecrated. Your body is a forest - thick canopies of maple trees and sweet scented wildflowers sprouting in the underwood. You will grow back, over and over, no matter how badly you are devastated.” Beau Taplin⠀
