We’ve grown by leaps and bounds in the last few months, though our two new additions both live in the same geographic area as I do (near Charlotte, NC), our newest and last addition to the Mama.Mommy.Mom. team lives a world away. Almost literally!
MommaLaura is coming to us all the way from the UK. Laura, an American, is married to her best friend who is British. 2 years ago when they found our they were expecting their first child they made the move to the UK. Laura met her husband when she was 17 and living in El Salvador with her family. Her husband had gone on a youth trip to the area. The two met and they were instant best friends. But unlike her husband, who years later confessed to having a crush on her, she would have bet anything she wouldn’t have ended up marrying him. 10 years later they reconnected and the walk down the isle came just 13 months later.
Adjusting to life as parents has been a journey of discovery. Discovering who they are, not only as parents, but also as a married couple. Laura admits that on the outside her parenting choices might seem unique, but she is just the same as every parent out there, learning what works for her and basically guessing and hoping for the best.
MommaLaura is excited to share in the parenting journey with you. If you have any questions for her ask away. Laura exclusively breastfed for 6 months and continued breastfeeding until 18 months. She uses reusable diapers and doesn’t own a stroller, instead uses baby carriers. She also did Baby-Led Weaning with her daughter (which skips the purred stage of weaning). Any questions about any of these things or if you just want to say hi, she loves chatting so ask away. You can email her at email@example.com .
