Whether you’re a first time single mom, dad, or couple (or even long time parents), you’re here to learn or expand your knowledge for your child(ren).
As a single mother, it is not impossible to manage parenting on your own. You are strong enough to do it! Maybe you just need the resources, support or some other opinions of other parents to develop your own choices when it comes to your parenting decisions.
Just to give you a little background for my future posts: I’m a first time single mother (the other “parent” is not involved) and I have been fortunate enough to have the support of close friends and family to accept and support the decisions I’ve made along the past few months (my “little” is only 3 months as of mid-June). My little babe is exclusively breastfed, meaning she doesn’t eat formula, however she does get a bottle when I am at work. In my Breastfeeding tab under Blog, I’ll touch on some tips and tricks to make it as easy as possible and list some pros and cons of breastfeeding if you’re still on the fence of whether or not you may want to try breastfeeding (I think every mom should at least try it in the beginning- it is the best thing for you and your baby!)
I also cloth diaper during the day. In my future posts under the Cloth Diapering tab under Blog, I will discuss pros and cons, and some tips and tricks as well and how I get along with a budget (I even hand wash my diapers most of the time to save money from going to the laundromat).
Breastfeeding and cloth diapering are two ways to save money when you have a new baby in the works. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me and I would be happy to share any information I have or try my best to find the information for you!
