The women of DailyMomtra have never met in person, but bonded over an intolerance for lazy parenting on a social networking site. This is their blog.
The Girls Who Brought Daily Momtra to Life — Founders:
Michele Zipp is still in awe over the fact that she created boy/girl twins (with some help from her husband). She hates pumping, loves breastfeeding and was told by her doula that her nipples were made for the latter. She’s a writer who has covered everything from sex to pregnancy to fashion…and thinks the three can certainly be related.
Christie Haskell is a Pagan military wife, very-involved and attached mother of two, and supreme research junkie. She prides herself on being a Nestle-boycotting, tree-hugging, latte-sipping liberal, and champions for breastfeeding and car seat education, as well as LGBT, environmental and animal rights and a myriad of other issues.
Katie Olson is the mother of one very awesome little dude named Brody who happens to have classic autism. She prides herself on running a vegan, chemical free, cruelty free household. She spends her spare time on her baking business, animal welfare (pitbulls in particular), watching The Simpsons and shit talking the government and western society in general.
Girls Who Help Keep It Spunky –
Melanie Hanzlik, CLEC, is a blue girl in a red state, with 3 kids and an awesome husband who provides everything so she can stay home with their kids. She believes in the beauty of attachment parenting and full term breastfeeding, the importance of car seat safety, the necessity of equal human rights, and has an extreme thirst for knowledge.
Sharon Nezer is a crazy, over-informed geek and a woman who tries to do the whole ‘wife’ thing, while doing her best to parent two boys. Sometimes she tries to remember what it is like to be ‘Sharon The Woman’, and in those moments you can usually find her writing something, reading, relaxing with her friends … anything that can’t be done while breastfeeding.
Also find me @ Breastfeeding Examiner.
Kara is a left-leaning Army wife and mother to a gorgeous toddler. She is a strong proponent of extended breastfeeding, delayed introduction of solids, gentle parenting, co-sleeping, intactivism and out-of-hospital birth. She’s constantly being moved around the country by the Army, but dreams of one day settling down with her family, a garden and a few chickens.
