Conventional or natural?? (edit)

Posted by   + Show Post
Parenting styles which one are you and why did you choose it.

CONVENTIONAL (previously 'traditional')= typically uses formula (possibly breast fed). Uses disposible diapers, vaccinates, uses stroller/babyswing/bouncers, baby sleeps in own room, circumsizes(if boys), uses many commercial products(laundry soap/tampons/hand sanitizer, ect), traditional hospital birth with meds, ect...

Natural=breastfeed/pump/donor milk, cloth diaper, wear baby, no/delay vaccines, no circ(if boys), more holistic health care, more homeade(mama cloth/laundry detergent/essential oils, ect), home birth/birthing center/no meds, homeschool, co sleep/bedshare, ect

just go with which ever catagory you MOSTLY fit. I know some might have alittle of both.

I'm more traditional, but a little natural when it comes to the birth and infancy. No meds for labor, used a midwife, breast fed, co slept, very small amounts of processed foods, usually things like fiber bars....

Traditional
Don't really have a reason. I guess it's the way I was raised .
Didn't want to do cloth diapers
Breast feeding just has too many advantages to ignore for me
I Vax cause I can
Refused to co sleep cause I saw the horrible time my sister had trying to break her son of it when he got older
I circumsized both my boys
Hospital birth cause I wanted my epidural and in case something went wrong

I am definitely traditional.  You should run a poll.
