On Being Your Own Expert
I ran across this post, and it really expresses how I feel about certain baby books, and about relying too heavily on the "experts." Right after I had Theo, I was so frustrated and confused about which expert to listen to. Now, two months out, I feel much more confident about listening to myself. At first, I was obsessed with having a schedule. I felt like that was the only way I would survive. Now I feel like listening to my baby's cues is the best, easiest, and most manageable way. Moxie's post pretty much sums up my thoughts. And I'm going to subscribe to her blog now. A sleep-deprived mother can benefit greatly from the thoughts of a sensible, well-rested mother. Help me Moxie-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope.
