What it is
Where to find it
non-gmo. Of course their are occasions where we bend the rules, family outings for pizza, being in a bind and needing a quick bean burrito at Taco Bell, etc. that being said-all she feeds my son when she watches him is chicken fingers, French fries, pizza, packaged donuts, you name it, it's crap. My husband and I have both explained to her the dangers of GMO's and how harmful processed food is, and while she agrees, she doesn't change anything about the way she feeds our son. Even if I send snacks with him, she buys him other food. We don't have many family members to watch our son, and honestly can't afford to pay anyone at the current time. So when me or my husband needs to work, we have to take what we can get. When he comes back from being with the grandmoms (mine included), it takes at least a day or two to get his behavior back on track, bc he's been given everything he wants with them, and is honestly a little brat for a while. When my MIL offers to take him for the night or afternoon, I can't justify turning it down bc I could reeally use the time to myself, and to prepare for our upcoming baby (I'm 32 weeks pregnant). But having to deal with a misbehaving, toddler for days after kills me. The food definitely affects his behavior, plus being given constant attention/playing with grandmom takes some adjustment as well. Sorry for the wordy post, just wondering how others deal with diet issues and care givers. I know if I say we don't want him eating crap she will absolutely take offense. Help!!
I'm not buying it on the say so of this article alone, but food for thought.
This actually aligns with some of what I believe about government diet recommendations in general.
I'm a sort of attachment parenting mom (I don't put a label on how I parent, but much of what I do is consistent with AP). DD sleeps with me but nurses every1-2 hours. I have trouble sleeping between feedings.
I've determined for my own mental health and need to sleep that I need to get her into her crib. It takes DH and me (we alternate when I start going batty) 2 hours to attempt to do this nightly...and then we fail miserably and bring her back to bed with us.
I have the No Cry Sleep Solution. It's good...but I can't even get through phase 1. She just won't let us put her down in the crib.
I can't do cry it out...it makes me more anxious to hear her cry.
I'm kind of at a loss. Any words of wisdom?
