Hi! I’m Carly, and i’m your Fairy Good Mommy.
The mother of two young boys who were born by C section, who had both breast milk and formula, who had cloth and disposable nappies, and who attended formal childcare at 8, and 18 months old.
I am a firm believer that parenting is not only a mother’s job; kids should get the support of as many people around them as possible. This could mean a father, a second mother, grandparents, stepparents, foster or adoptive parents. I write with this support network in mind.
I’m a mother who lives to research; I’m always looking at things on my computer, phone, or tablet – things to make my day more efficient, add value to the time that I have both personally and with my family, or just simply broaden my understanding of the world around me. As a result, I have collected a ton info about a whole heap of things! My articles are all about the things that I have discovered, or researched about parenting; the things which I have found to help me make decisions, and get the most out of the early years with my boys.
Be critical about what you see online, take parenting advice with a pinch of salt, and bring your kids up however you feel best suits them. No one knows your family like you do, but I hope you find something useful here!
