Mommy Wars are a big thing these days! I feel like they are popping up on more and more topics everyday. Breastfeeding vs. Formula, Circumcision vs. Uncircumcised, Vaccinations vs. Anti-Vaxers and I could go on and on. I have opinions on all of these things, I could share them with you but the only person I can assure they are right for it me. Every mom has to face decision-making on a daily basis with their little ones and they can only do what is right for their family.
Knowing this is the case I like to educate myself on topics before I make a decision. I love that What to Expect® When You’re Expecting is now in a brand new 5th edition with a and has a fresh perspective, up-to-the-minute information and advice.
When I had a question it was my first research tool. This way I could gather all of my questions and be ready for doctor appointments. More than once I showed up for an appointment with a written out list of questions!
A few of my favorite topics to read up on while I was pregnant included things like Mommy Wars of course, but also things like prenatal tests (so I knew what to expect at appointments), how I should adjust my diet and work outs as my pregnancy progressed. The Mister enjoyed it too because it has a lot of information for dad’s role and perspective as well!
