Musings from A Heart Too Glad

Baby Led Parenting

Love your baby, listen to their desires, listen to your heart; follow your instincts
Remember:  When "Dancing" with your babies, allow them to lead!

This page was created in the hopes of convincing all mothers to believe in themselves, and (more importantly) learning how to listen to their baby.  There are indeed a great many things mothers should not remain ignorant of - they should learn their birthing options and different approaches to labor and pain management;  they should choose a pediatrician as if the life of their child depends on it;  they should seek out other like-minded women as their support group;. . . .but women should not be looking for other individuals to validate their mothering choices. 

Don't you see?  The answer is between you and your baby!!

That is, your baby will teach you how to best parent him or her, if only you listen.  The best way to raise your baby may not be the same as the best way to raise mine.  Yet, all too often we hear mothers talking about what books they've found helpful, or what outside resources they are using to help them learn how to raise their children. (??)   As women, we have been brought up to be unsure of ourselves, and now we scurry about, somehow looking for the key that will unlock that magical information already found in our heart and our babies cries.

Learn to read your baby's cues.  Then do what your heart tells you.



Every human person - no matter how vulnerable or helpless, no matter how young or old, no matter how healthy, handicapped or sick, no matter how useful or productive for society - is a being of inestimable worth created in the image and likeness of God.
