The Pre-natal went pretty well last nightâ€¦ there where 5 couples that where all ears but one couple in particularâ€¦
When asked at the beginning if they where wanting to breastfeed this couple said that yes they would but would like to express to have daddy have a chance to have that bond tooâ€¦ So I made a point of explaining all of the things that Daddy can so even if he doesnâ€™t nurseâ€¦ (skin to skin, walking, burping, cuddling, bathing) and it seemed to make sense to himâ€¦ The whole time I was talking this guy had a big smile and was noddingâ€¦ During the break they told me that they have read a lot of breastfeeding and that all the things they have read where confirmed and they learned many more thingsâ€¦ I told them that if they want to succeed they have to go into it saying that they are going to do itâ€¦ and told them how when I was pregnant I decided that nothing was going to stop me from breastfeeding and I wouldnâ€™t let myself be set up for any disaster so all bottles and samples where thrown out of the houseâ€¦ When I said that A light lit up in this guys face, and right away he said that that was such a great ideaâ€¦ that having samples around just`makes it so much easier for then to be used and for something to hinder the breastfeeding relationshipâ€¦ and that if you have to go out and get Formula you might think about it a bit moreâ€¦ (I really think that the samples they have are going to be leaving the house LOL)
Another thing they asked me about was Vit Dâ€¦ I told them that I have never given Vit D and that it depends on the school of thoughtâ€¦ Though the Canadian Paediatric Society recomeds itâ€¦ the actual fact is that it is a blanket recommendation that really doesnâ€™t have too much weight especially in a fair skinned child born in the summer..
Another cool thing that happened was that the nurse asked me if I had brought my wrap and Sling because she really wanted to show it off and show off the way I wear my baby…. I told her that I have been thinking about giving some classes a the â€œCarrefourâ€ and she thought it was a great idea and is going to talk to her boss about me being the â€œofficialâ€ resource is the regionâ€¦ She even told me that she has gotten a few questions about babywering from people that have seen me in Public and she knew they where talking about me because they described my Ellaroo!
I am still waiting for the answer from â€œMaman Kangourouâ€ but I am pretty sure to become a retailer and that way I can teach and sellâ€¦
