EPISODE #22: The Mom Who Did Everything Wrong

before_first_foodWhen Heather Meyers was pregnant, she figured she’d learn how to handle issues around feeding, sleep, and potty training in books and on blogs. But as soon as Rosemary was born, she made it clear: there was no answer to her needs in any stinkin’ book. So Heather had to figure it out as she went along. She started feeding Rosemary real food at three months (at left, eagerly awaiting for her first meal). And she carried her or let her walk everywhere because Rosemary refused to be in a stroller.


Heather was desperate to talk about her parenting “hacks” with other moms. But doing things differently made it nearly impossible to make friends.
