Everyday I read about some mom asking for "natural" ways to induce labor, best ways to help baby "self-soothe", when is the earliest baby can have solids, if their 10 month old can start on cow's milk, how to best potty train their 18 month old, why is their 12 month old not speaking sentences, when can they forward face their little ones...etc.
What is with this rush and obsession to move everything along as fast as possible? When did we get so hell bent on by passing everything? Most of us realize that if we never do anything about it, it will still happen just like it has happened to every other adult in the world. Babies are born everyday that weren't forced out. Babies that wake often turn into children that sleep all night. Babies fed BM only until after one year old turn into adults that can eat a steak. Most adults have the ability to drink a glass of milk. Most adults possess the ability to use the potty with consistent accuracy. Everyone I know over six can talk or communicate somehow. Last but not least, most of us forward face eventually, even those pesky safety conscious Swedes.
So, again I ask: What is the rush? Why miss out on life by trying to bypass it all? Sit back and relax and breathe knowing that it will all happen eventually, whether you force it or wait on it.
