Hello everyone!

I'm a first time mom to a handsome 2 month old baby boy, Gabriel. I decided to join this group, because the longer i parent and the more decisions I make, the more natural I end up deciding to go, and I want to learn more about my choices before I keep doing things one way and then going natural.

For examples, when I was pregnant, I thought I would be formula feeding my baby but I did some research (and got some encouragement from SO) and decided to breastfeed (and thankfully made the choice before he was born so he hasn't had a drop of formula). I thought carriages (and putting baby down in general) was the best option, but I babywear more often than not (I LOVEEE my Moby and mei tai and don't know what I would do without them). I have a bassinet and a crib in our room, because I knew I wanted (ahem, needed) to cosleep, but they've never been used because we bedshare. And now, I'm going to be switching to cloth diapers.

So, I just figured I would join this group to learn more about natural choices for my son, and my family.

Thanks! I don't want to be cured, ever. Everytime I see him smile, I know I'm doing just right by him, and it feels awesome.

I have lurked in this group for awhile, so I'm glad to join and learn and talk to you all finally!

I'm somewhat impulsive... I want to do it, and figure I can switch with my next baby, and then decide I just can't wait because I don't want to do it a way that isn't making me happy this time around!
