Being able to work from home for 7 years, I appreciate all of its perks especially now that I have a 16 month old daughter. Before being a mom, I used to think that I can teach other freelancers some strategies on how I am able to survive 7 years of working from home - but now that I'm a mom, things have changed. Many internet gurus are now teaching those anyway, and now, I have two advocacies that I'd like to teach with moms and moms-to-be.
While there are numerous carriers out there, I'm afraid that those being sold or heavily marketed are non-ergonomic carriers. Babies are used to be carried - and this is the common misconception that many people have. I have heard unsolicited advice that if I carry her all the time, I'll just spoil it; no - babies who are carried aren't being spoiled. They are being cared for, and they are being given the warmth, love and attention that they deserve during these early stages in their life. Carried babies are also less fussy..
I would love to teach all of its benefits, how to choose the right carrier, as well as guide them throughout their babywearing journey.
At 16 months, my little one directly feeds from me - and as a mother, I've witnessed all of the advantages of choosing breast milk over formula milk. In a world today where formula milk appears better than anything else because of marketing, I'd like to instil to mothers' minds that exclusive breastfeeding offers a lot of benefits, both to the child and the mother.
Low in milk supply? There's something that we can always do about it - lactation consultants and massages are always available, and information is what everybody is lacking.
