My Life Is Not Average

Don't Cry ...

There's so much conflicting advice when it comes to parenting.

Should I feed on demand (less stressful now) or set a routine (less stressful later)? Should I expect a five-week-old to stay awake for 45 minutes or an hour and a half at a time? Should I encourage her to settle for naps in her cot or is it more natural to carry her around in the sling all day?

I think I'd better to back to the Bible's advice: "Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it." Proverbs 22:6.
