This site is dedicated, first and foremost, to the relationship between parents and their children. While breastfeeding, babywearing, co-sleeping, homeschooling, and other specific parenting choices are encouraged here, ultimately it is the relationship that is of paramount importance, and all else stems from that. So, while reading through the articles and links presented here for your information and enjoyment, keep in mind that every family and every baby are different, and part of the beauty of parenthood is creating your own unique footprint on the world. So read, enjoy, learn. Talk to family and friends. Consult with medical and lactation and parenting experts. Research and educate yourself. But most of all, get to know your little one and yourself as a parent and make your own informed decisions that fit your beliefs and lifestyle. Enjoy the journey, because these precious moments of childhood will simply be sweet memories before you know it!
