Hello Blog Readers, Please enjoy this poem by my colleague, Ziji Beth Goren.
Recipe for Life
I heard about life from a friend
so I took the opportunity
sent for the recipe
mixed up a batch
and popped out a child.
I had birthed myself,
a new version,
shiny and wet with laughter.
held and rocked by a new caring world
who loved themselves and the planet
and its people more than ever before
more than I thought possible.
And my baby kept gurgling with smiles,
kicking chubby legs
reaching from a sturdy core
so bright with vision.
I carried my child
everywhere I went,
changed everyone I met.

Welcome to the Conscious Baby Blog! Here you will find enlightening information about first-year development, milestones, and how to support your Little Ones in the most optimal ways possible. You’ll find tips for Tummy Time and handling skills. You’ll find a refreshing and respectful approach to being with crying babies and tantruming toddlers.
It’s time to bring ourselves back to our instincts and help our babies maintain their connection with their natural intuitive, aware way of being in the world. It is up to us to foster awareness, confidence, compassion, safety, healthy self-esteem, and communication. These things can and DO happen in the first year, and even in the first weeks. Come with me on a journey of empowering our children from the start–and bringing healing to ourselves in the process.
