Was unable to bf, I pumped and bottle fed for a month until my body stopped producing milk, I get my dd her shots as needed, I put dd in the corner and only spank if that isn't working. I let her CIO rarely when she was a baby because sometimes you don't know what to do and being frustrated and stressed out while holding your child doesn't help sooth them. I allow her to play outside by herself when it is nice out. She is only 2 1/2. She has never slept in bed with Df and I, she has slept in bed with just me but not until after she was a yr old and only when she was sick.
I wanted to out this up because I know all the bashing about these things and how it will hurt her, but she is strong, independent, and very intelligent. I think everyone can do things their own way and if it works more power to you!

Outside alone at 2 1/2 is wrong no matter what. The rest is whatever, do what works for you

Yes, we don't live in town and my yard is fenced. I have 2 neighbors for miles and she doesn't ever really like to get off the porch. Plus I keep the house opened up. She runs in and out telling me what she is doing more than anything else.

Yes, I keep the house opened up and she runs back and forth telling me what she is doing. Or just yells at me through the window so we can talk. I'm not locking her outside. :-)

If I had a fenced in yard I would let my 2 1/2 year old play outside. It's unrealistic and plain stupid to think you need to be a shadow to your children.
