A lot has changed since I first became a mother more than four years ago. I wanted to do everything right for my precious little bundle of joy. Although I still want the world for my children, I just don't put the same passion into things that i used to. Be it convenience, finances or just a shift in values..my parenting has certainly adapted from the first child to the second. The following is a somewhat humorous list of things that have changed.
1.) First Child
Hand washed bottles with
All natural, chemical free soap and dried on separate drying rack.
Use the same bottle for three feedings then toss in the dishwasher.
2.) First Child
Fed Organic formula, organic baby food and organic snacks exclusively until she was two.
Fed whatever was the cheapest brand of formula from Wal-mart, Cheerios, and Mac 'n cheese.
3.) First Child
Used biodegradable and cloth diapers until she was potty trained.
Use the Parents Choice brand unless I got coupon
4.) First Child
Vacuumed the living room and nursery daily and then laid a blanket down for her to play.
Maybe vacuum every other week and do occasional mouth sweeps
5.) First Child
Strictly followed the Babywise sleep routine, baby sleeping through the night at 8wks, in her own room at four months.
9 months old and still sleeping in our bed.
