Okay so the honest truth. As boring as they are I do have to go through them.
A Doctor, I’m not
Firstly, I am not a Doctor. I am not a nurse. I did not graduate from the “University of all child knowledge”. I have no long list of capital letters that follow my name.
However, I do love to research and learn. I use medical journals and books, personal interviews and my life long experiences in the childcare field to gather information about the topics I post about.
All this is to say that I cannot give you any medical advice. Period. If you have any medical questions, please seek someone with a medical degree.
Don’t blindly follow advice
I would Like to share some advice that I feel everyone should learn. Do not blindly follow something just because you read it on the internet.
I always like to stress that you are the expert on your child. If you disagree with advice given, then don’t use it. Go with what feels right.
While I endeavor to provide the most accurate information to you, there may be instances where information given in topics is incorrect. This may be due to but not limited to: Outdated blog post, updated legislation and typos.
This blog provides for my family
As much as I love what I am doing (writing, researching and interacting with parents and babies from all over the world), It is incredibly time consuming.
Every minute I spend dedicated to my blog it time that could be used taking my kids to the park, annoying the husband or
doing laundry reading a good fiction book.
I had a clear choice, either figure out how to work from home or return to the workforce. I decided to give online blogging about children a chance at first.
So to be 100% honest and upfront, I do use affiliate links throughout this website.
What is an affiliate link?
Occasionally when I am writing a guide I will refer to products with a link on where you can purchase them.
If you click that link and purchase the item, the website will give me a “finders fee” at not cost to you. You should assume that every outward link on this website is an affiliate link.
While I do use affiliate links,I do not recommend products that I would not use myself. If I could write about children without the need for an income then I would not use them. To live in a perfect world, eh?
