Intuition of the Modern Woman {Motherhood}

by January Harshe on January 29, 2013

“Oftentimes I felt ridiculous giving my seal of approval to what was in reality such a natural thing to do, sort of like reinventing the wheel and extolling its virtues. Had parents’ intuition sunk so low that some strange man had to tell modern women that it was okay to sleep with their babies?” Dr. William Sears

I remember thinking the very same thing when I would hear people in my adopted home of California mention Dr. Sears to support their instinct/desire/choice to sleep with or breastfeed their children. And I felt sad that they needed to mention this man who was a stranger to them to justify/legitimize their intuitive parenting choices.
