If you could get a parenting do-over, what would you use it for, if anything?

I would have BFed my first son instead of listening to everyone else. That is my biggest regret that I did not even try.

  • Hhhmmm...........I don't think that I'd change anything that I've done. There are things that I'd change that had nothing to do with him. I would have moved out of the house right after I had my son, got my drivers license at 16, and gone to collage right away. I don't think that any of those count though. hehe!

  • The birth. I was bombarded with BS and felt a hospital was my only option. I wish I had fought harder for what was best. It was just a very hard time in my life and I had no real support.

  • I would have had my DD at home.

  • I wouldn't have been induced with DS. I ended up having to have a c-section b/c I wouldn't dilate and had to have c-sections with both DD's b/c the pregnancies were so close together.
