My son Anakin ❤

Almost 7 weeks ago I gave birth to my second child at a beautiful, pain free and natural home water birth.

We have chosen not to have a doctor, midwife or other health care professionals weigh him, measure him or do rutine checkups, as we don't feel the need and as we find, that it would be unnecessarily stressful for him. He is clearly thriving and growing, and I checked his newborn reflexes etc. myself. He is strong and healthy ❤

  • neohippie.dk@sofiemowgli - Hvis han på nogen måde viser tegn på sygdom eller andre uregelmæssigheder vil jeg få en professionel til at se på ham 😊 Men så længe han udvikler sig normalt, ser jeg ingen grund til at tage imod tilbuddet om forebyggende undersøgelser af fremmede - da de er en overvældende oplevelse for en nyfødt. Men jeg er bestemt ikke imod tilbuddet om forebyggende rutineundersøgelser - de hjælper helt sikkert mange mennesker. Vi havde bare ikke behovet.
  • vegancyamazing! thank you for sharing your experience 💚
  • xling2787Do you let your children vaccinated? I am also expecting and was wondering if you have good tips to keep breastmilk production at high level? With my first born I had to switch to bottle milk as I was not producing enough... :( had a really bad experience with breastfeeding and want to do it better with second one... thank you!
  • nannadyvekeMin datter er født med hoftedysplasi, hvilket jeg på ingen måde ville have opdaget, hvis ikke det var blevet tjekket. Kun 1% af alle spædbørn har det, og det viser sig først (altså når man selv kan se det), når barnet begynder at gå, da gangen er skæv eller foden er drejet. Så håber sådan du har tjekket for klik i hoften 🙏🏻
  • ashurinas@xling2787 If its ok, I want to let you know that i was going through a hard time with my baby and I almost gave up cause everyone said that I didn't have enough milk - but I kept letting her nurse as much as she wanted and having her skin to skin, and ate a lot of nuts, and seeds and healthy food. I was in pain for almost two months and she didn't have a good latch either, but I kept letting her nurse and I am still nursing as much as she wants and she is 17 months now. Maybe useful maybe not 🌞💚
  • xling2787@ashurinas hi, it's definetely useful😊, breastfeeding was indeed painfull at the beginning, I have never thought that it would be like that. Thank you for your tips!
  • chmannkI think most people, like myself, who has given birth to a child with a disability, that's not visible to the untrained eye thinks it's risky, not have check ups. But I can also confirm that professionals do not know everything, they know medicin and procedure . It's up to the parent to research, guide and advocate for their child, they are all different with different needs. I'm intrigued about your lifestyle and your view on how to educate your children. I'm going to DK in June, visiting the deaf school in Copenhagen as a possible school for my son as I'm not happy with the deaf school in Melbourne that he currently attends. I have thought of homeschooling but not sure how to teach him everything he needs to learn.
  • livmeierb@neohippie.dk spændende, det blog indlæg vil jeg se frem til! :)
  • hellekoefoedVil bare sige, at det er virkelig fedt, at du har valgt den livsstil, du har, og samtidig overhovedet ikke virker arrogant eller bedrevidende omkring det. Det gør nemlig, at jeg, selvom jeg slet ikke lever som du, bliver inspireret til små og vigtige ændringer i min hverdag 👏😊✌️
  • birchtina@xling2787 tips to high milk production is to let the baby nurse often. The more times the baby sucks the nipple, the more breast milk - and the mother should rest a lot. No stress. Let the baby live close to you 24/7 and let the baby's hunger control the breast feeding. And yes, breastfeeding can be painful and not so romantic 😏
  • jeanne_kirk_halkjaer@neohippie.dk dejlig med en nuanceret og saglig debat om vacciner ❤
  • theworldofpry@neohippie.dk jeg vil lige spøger dig om du giver din smukke søn D-vitamin dråber og i så fald er der nogle mærker du vil anbefale 🙏 min lille pige er idag 14 dage og ja er lidt i tvivl ift hvad jeg skal vælge osv. Håber du vil dele din erfaringer
  • neohippie.dk@xling2787 - Yes, Aston is vaccinated with the vaccines in the danish vaccine program so far. I think that a lot of other countries offer several unnecessary vaccines, that I would not give them however. I see that you have gotten a lot of great advice here, 'cause I would also recommend a lot of skin-to-skin contact, breastfeed on demand (several times each hour if necessary) and seek help right away, if you experience any pain ❤
  • neohippie.dk@hellekoefoed - Det er jeg glad for 💚
  • neohippie.dk@theworldofpry - Nej, vi tager kun b12-tilskud, men kan anbefale d3-spray fra mærket Vitashine. Det er nemt at give, plantebaseret og kan bestilles på nettet 👍
  • xling2787@neohippie.dk thanks a lot!
  • xling2787@birchtina thank you😊
  • torbensdatterDet lyder måske som et underligt spørgsmål, men hvordan havde du det med smertefri fødsel? Jeg har selv haft en fødsel, der tog til i intensitet og efter et døgn blev meget smertefuld, men jeg ville ikke være foruden smerten, fordi den gav rigtig meget mening for mig. Det er den mest intense, ekstreme og fantastiske oplevelse nogensinde.
  • neohippie.dk@torbensdatter - Jeg havde det rigtig godt med det. Jeg slappede helt af og forberedte mig mentalt på at skulle presse - og havde overskud til at klare alting selv, som jeg ønskede ❤ Min første fødsel var ekstremt og unødigt smertefuld, så jeg er så glad for, at jeg formåede at få en rolig og tryg fødsel denne gang 😊
  • torbensdatterJa, min fødsel var også meget uproblematisk. Jeg tror også, at det vigtigste er, at man er tryg <3
