As a new mom, I seemed to forget I had any idea how to make good decisions. From her birth, when they demanded I write down every drop she drank onward, I was always anxious about her health, wondering if I was doing the right thing or not.
I read every book, knew what developmental milestones to expect, and was busy comparing her to the lists–waiting for each new ability to arrive.
Doctor visits often felt like a job interview. There are some pediatricians that, even though they mean well, can’t help but scare a first-time parent with all of their questions.
There’s a wide variety in what’s “normal” and what’s “recommended”. Just because your child doesn’t drink out of a cup yet doesn’t mean you need to make that objective your obsession, for example. They will when they are ready and resistance to that fact only makes it worse.
Unless your gut tells you something is just not right, take the recommendations with a grain of salt. You are connected to your children in powerful ways. Turn off the fear and listen to your heart.

Until I found Conscious Parenting, I’d completely lost sight of ME. I had no idea what I wanted or needed. I used my marriage, which was on the brink of divorce, to uncage the real me and now we’re happier than ever. My growth inspired his, fortunately for our children.
