Discussing Health and Parenting: Girlfriend’s Guide






Are you a well-read and informed parent who believes you?re making the healthiest choices for your baby" Do you ever hear friends describe different parenting choices and think, ?She?s doing it all wrong!? You want to help, but don?t know what to say" Here?s our advice, girlfriend to girlfriend!
Be a Friend First
Remember that doing things differently doesn?t mean parents don?t love their baby, or that what they?re doing is all wrong. We each make what we believe are the best parenting choices for our family. With those assumptions out of the way, don?t be afraid to talk about your experiences and share information without judgment.
Ask to Understand
We make health decisions based on our own knowledge, expectations, fears, benefits, and options. Our views are shaped by our experiences, our family and friends, the information we get from our healthcare providers, media, and other influences. So if your friend talks about a parenting choice that you believe is unhealthy, ask her why she thinks that choice is best?you might be surprised.
Consider these stories and how the experiences of the individuals and families shape these women?s less than best choices:
1. The stomach sleeper:
Aly?s baby doesn?t sleep well. When complaining to her mom about her lack of sleep, her mom tells her to put the baby to sleep on his stomach. Her mom says she put her babies on their stomachs for sleep, so did all her friends, and she never knew of a baby who died of SIDS. Sleep-deprived, Aly is willing to try this, and is happy when her son seems to sleep better. At their next well-baby visit, Aly mentions the sleep change to her pediatrician, who talks to her about SIDS and safe sleep. Aly feels that because her son doesn?t have other risk factors for SIDS like prematurity or secondhand smoke, the benefits of him sleeping on his stomach outweigh the risks.
2. The formula feeder:
Mia has never seen anyone breastfeed. Her friends feed formula to their babies, and her older sister told her that breastfeeding was really painful, and that she never had enough milk. At Mia?s prenatal appointment, her pregnancy care provider tells her that breastfeeding is the best way to feed her baby, and she is surprised. She says she is planning to formula feed. The pamphlets her care provider gives her seem to contradict everything she?s heard from friends and family. She expects that if she tries to breastfeed, her experience would be painful and she won?t have enough milk, just like her sister, so she doesn?t plan to try.

Respond Honestly
If your experiences and information are different than your friend?s, share them, offering advice and encouragement while still being understanding. For example, you could say to Aly, ?It?s so hard when the baby doesn?t sleep well! I found that swaddling my baby helped her sleep much better on her back.? Or to Mia, ?It can seem strange and difficult to feed our babies from our breasts, especially if you haven?t seen anyone do it, but it...
