If you had to choose to stop doing something, be it natural birth, breastfeeding, babywearing, have to vax, etc etc what would you choose?

This is tough because the natural parenting stuff I do I enjoy. I guess my answer would be giving up cloth diapers. I don't mind doing cloth, but I didn't cloth my first son and sposies are a bit easier to deal with.

I guess I would do the same cuz the rest of those options effect development.

I agree. I like cloth but sometimes it is a great big giant pain. Sposies are simply more convenient.

I could give up babywearing since I generally have to after about 15 or so pounds because of my back OR cloth diapers

I'm not sure. I don't have the funds to drop breastfeeding, cloth diapering or making my own stuff. Baby wearing would be the only thing I could actually do. It would make going out a pain in the butt though since I have two small children and only single strollers. I don't plan on getting a double stroller until after we move.

Probably baby wearing. Don't have the money to go sposies. It would be a pain, though.

I've not been lucky enough to have a natural birth, so I suppose I can give that up and not know what I'm missing.  The first was a section and the second was an induced VBAC...
