    I think it's mostly that people who had a relatively happy childhood tend to think that the way their family was growing up is the good and 'proper' way to do things, and most people do have...

    Yep, I used it for the first 4 hours of my 6-hour labour (my labour was quite fast and intense for a first time compared to the average, I think). I would hardly classify it as pain relief at all. It...

    Brother for Freyja

    This is totally hypothetical because we're not having another one any time soon, but just playing around. Now that we've named the first child, I think it narrows us down a lot for the potential...

    Magnus is nice enough, I find it a little dull since it is like the equivalent of Steven where I live, very very common and kind of a 'dad' name. But a nice classic.

    I think Bertie sounds like it...

    I call all ducks either Francis or Jemima, as in Francis Drake and Jemima Puddleduck. Haha I don't know whether those appeal to you at all, or whether the references are strong enough for you, but...

    I'm going to try my absolute best to practice feminist parenting. Gender neutral stuff comes into that, but it goes a lot further also. This is an interesting thread. I'm not giving her obviously...

    That's exactly why I wouldn't tell the older children right away. These things can and do happen, and I don't think miscarriage is a thing a little child should have to think about if it can be...

    I haven't yet because she's much too young, but I definitely wouldn't have a problem with it. Not while she's too little to understand that I'm popping into the shop and I'll be back soon, and not...

    This is part of the reason people get frustrated. You've said this before, and while I'm sure a lot of work is already being done, I don't think I've ever seen you address the specific issue of why...

    Neither of us were particularly excited just at the positive pregnancy test, in large part because I miscarried my first pregnancy so we already knew from personal experience that positive pregnancy...

    Thanks everyone!

    I want to get her used to this as much for her and for him as for me. I think a father should get time with his baby, and although of course he does anyway when I'm around, it's a...
  15. When did you start leaving breastfed baby with other caregiver?

    Yikes, you're eager!

    For myself, I know that although I'm feeling really good, my body is definitely not 100% recovered from pregnancy and birth and I'm sure another pregnancy would not be great...

    How do/did you dress your baby?

    Hey everyone!

    Freyja is 6 weeks old now and we are still dressing her almost exclusively in a vest which pops at the crotch, socks and a footed babygro (onesie) over the top. This way she has no...

    She has a name! :)

    Our daughter was born on 4 June, and just over three weeks later we have decided on a name for her. She is Freyja Elísabet.

    Our little girl is 3 weeks old as of yesterday, and we are just about ready to take the plunge and fix a name on her. It's early for Icelandic standards, but my parents are visiting...
