  1. It’s all good. I’ve subscribed to your blog via Google Reader, so whenever you post something, however infrequent, it appears and I don’t have to keep checking your site.

    Unfortunately, I have no advice for you because I’m a soon-to-be first-time mom.

  2. Hi there! I’m an athiest new mom who just moved to conroe and am feeling very alone as every woman I’ve met here is religious! Ugh! Anyway, about advice- not sure of your circumstances but ifyou cosleep topless the baby will literally help themself to food and sleep better so your sleep should improve. Why is he waking? Wet diaper? I can help ya fix that. Also, on the holding thing… seriously try babywearing. It sounds like he needs some extra security… makes a difference what carrier you use. Imo a baby bjorn will make everyone miserable. Check out the beco or make a baby wrap. Front carry is awesome and snuggly on a tiny baby and so good for him! Feel free to email if you need help! I’m ba doula so I help my clients and friends all the time!

  3. I’m so curious if you really took notes with 8 different colored pens or if that was an exaggeration. What I’m really curious about is if so, what those 8 distinct colors were for.

  4. I’ve just found your blog (googling for “atheist feminist mom”), and I’m very glad I did. Your new baby sounds very much like my boy when he was little :)
    I’ve also subscribed to your blog via the RSS-feed (http:/theistmom.com/feed), but maybe you could include the link to the RSS-feed more prominently to make it easier for people to subscribe – I assume WordPress has some way to do that easily?
    Anyways, as a fellow recovering Catholic I appreciate your blog A LOT, so thank you very much and keep up the great work! And enjoy the precious time with your little one!

  5. i had the same thing with my babies. my little girl was content wherever she was. my little boy had to be held constantly. CON.STANT.LY. it was ridiculous until he learned to roll at 9 months. now, at almost 11 months, he is crawling and super happy. i just started my blog this summer, but i have found that it is hard to keep it consistent. i sacrifice my naps to write when both kiddos are in their rooms for nap. just remember that it will get better!! :)
