From lurking and reading posts it seems that there quite a mix of moms in this group. From those who are just beginning crunchy and those who are die hard. How crunchy would you rate yourself?


Personally I am between a beginner and middle of the roader. I am still learning my way, but I am way more crunchy than most of my friends.

I'm not sure....I do buy cleaners, but usually do green products.  We eat mostly organic, and when we move to Ky I'm planning on buying fruits, veggies and meats from one of the local farms that don't use pesticides or hormone treatments on their animals.

I breastfeed exclusively and extended, bed-share/co-sleep for at least the  first year, babywear, cloth diaper, although we do sometimes use sposies.  I did circ my boys but I regret it and would not do any future boys.  We do NFP instead of hormonal birth control, and we do gentle discipline. I've had 2 homebirths, with #4 and #5 and we homeschool.

How crunchy does that make me? LOL

I'm not sure of how the scale works. Home birth, breastfeed, co-sleep, shop local, eat organic, free-range, etc, use essential oils for almost everything, delayed vaccinations, no circumcision, conserve energy and fuel, no TV. On the other hand, we use shampoo, shower regularly, and (super shocking to many) we allow our daughter to wear full stage makeup because she dances competitively. I don't even want to know what's in eyelash glue!
