If I had...

...waited until 28 instead of 18 to have babies...I would so totally be a cloth diapering, exclusive breast feeding, baby wearing, making my own baby food SAHM! There's probably a few other things I'd do also. None of those things were mainstream in the late 90's in my area. Would you do anything different?

Not a thing. I did everything the way I wanted to.

At the time,I did what I thought was best. Wish I had been more educated in more options.

I had so much laundry to begin with, that cloth diapers were always out of the question.

My milk did not come in with my first child and after 4 days she was screaming, we went with formula. Followed suit with the other two.

Making babyfood is ok, but what's the difference? The ingredients are right on the jar. You still can't really control the hormones in the meat or the pesticides on the produce when you buy them yourself.

I can't think of anything I'd do different.

You did all any mom can, really.  Now, wait it out and help ensure your kids know of their options down the road.  Parenting goes through "fads" all the time, as does most other things in our society.  I like some of the new trends that put baby first, but some are a bit off the wall, too.  lol.

So far, I wouldn't change a thing about what I have done.

No...I had 1 @ 20 & 1 @ 31 and I did everything the same. They are both healthy, happy kids and that's what counts :)

Well I still think formula is more mainstream than BFing, and disposable diapers too. I didn't know anyone else IRL who used cloth... Anyway I'm not sure what I'd change. I wish my sons, and I didn't get sick, but I don't think I could've prevented that. My daughter is only two, and I am happy with all the decisions I made caring for her so far.
