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.
