boobs, uber car, formula and hippie moms

i went to the photog meetup yesterday and people were surprised to see me. but it was only for an hour or so and i took an Uber to get home. Ubers are awesome! i'm surprised since their owner is such a dbag, but the whole system was great. it shows me the driver (which was a woman) and where the car is.

thank you to the parents that responded with support for me and breastfeeding. we actually do use formula as well. her weight dropped over the 10% point, so she was born 10 lbs 1 oz and her lowest weight was 8 lbs 15.5 oz.

we use fancy formula that has to be exported in through UK and it's from Germany, it's called HiPP. there's a strange monopoly going on with US formula companies and they don't allow the sale of foreign formulas here. and europe has tighter non-GMO and organic certification.

so yeah, i don't even know how people exclusive breast feed. that's like every 2-3 hours where they're hanging off your boobs. that's 40 hours a week. that's a full time job. so basically right now it's a part-time job for me. i still pump and breast feed, just not for 40 hours a week. if that works for you, great.

it's basically how we're approaching most of the hippie parenting precepts. we cloth diaper. we also use disposables when i don't want to deal with it. and andy does elimination communication (diaper free).

we co-sleep or co-room.
yesterday on the 8th day, we finally put her in the crib in a room alone, and andy slept in the living room with the door open. it's the first time she slept in a room alone.

whatever works.

what i'm finding is that the hippie mom is way more judgey then mainstream moms.
