Awkward…but that's not all that Mayim Bialik is trying out!
The actress, who starred as spunky teen Blossom Russo, has released a new parenting book, titled Beyond The Sling: A Real-Life Guide To Raising Confident, Loving Children The Attachment Parenting Way.
Now THAT's a mouthful!
In the book, Bialik describes her use of the Attachment Parenting method. Some of these unusual techniques include carrying a baby in a sling close the chest, lack of diaper use, and sleeping on the floor with mama and dada.
And yes, breastfeeding until they are three.
Dr. Bialik says she believes in "green" parenting, and states the following on expensive toys and other baby products:
Our society's obsession with consumerism, especially in the realm of baby things, baby soaps and baby products… that's something that my husband and I, partly for frugality and partly for environmental reasons, have really rejected.
We figure everything out without spending a lot of money on that kind of stuff.
With a Ph.D in neuroscience, we're kinda tempted to believe she knows what she's talking about!
We're still iffy on some of her methods though…LOLz!
