Hi all. My name is Christy and I am the blessed mom of Brianna, 9 weeks old.
We are cosleeping (to much criticism from family-the usual "you're going to roll over on her"..uh, no, don't think so). My DH loves his sling, and I am a sleepy wrap advocate (trying to figure out how to BF in it...work in progress). May I join you guys?

You're only 17? *jawdrop* It's just that you sound much more mature than many 20+ year old moms I have come accross. *klem*

Now that the thread derail is done, welcome to the boards Christy, I hope you enjoy them as much as I have. I came here with the intent of just lurking but it was way too tempting to join in the conversation and it has been great.

Welcome! My name is Katie, and I have 2 girls. Julie is 3, and Kaylee is almost 7 months (tomorrow!) and we are BF and co-sleeping

I'm sorry you have family trying to butt into your parenting. Luckily, this time around our families have learned to back off, but I can understand the 'fun' of their unwanted opinions. I suppose they can be just as convicted as you are in your beliefs but really, they had their chance! You're the mommy now, and you're doing what you know in your heart is best for your baby!

I hope you post often and feel right at home here!

Welcome! I still haven't gotten down nursing in my wrap yet, so you're not alone! I did get my new Mei Tai yesterday though and it's really easy to nurse in. I just lower her down to the perfect height and nursing is a breeze.
