Re: Parenting labels. Anyone ever break free?
That sounds a lot like me! My first was mainly formula fed for a variety of reasons. Was circ'ed. My second was EBF and intact. I wish we had not done our first, but I don't worry about other families. We did the family bed until they transitioned on their own, both boys were around 3 years old. I wore them a lot. But I'm all about cheap walmart and dollar tree toys We do healthy and unhealthy foods, we love our mac n cheese and hot dogs

I get pain meds during birth-have NO interest in doing it naturally. We did circ our boys but if I could do that again I wouldn't. We fully vax only because I our oldest's medical problems. It's just what works for us. I minimize the risk and take the risks that I can live with. I'm neurotic enough as it is so I pick my battles.
It's been quite a parenting ride for sure, finding what works for us.
Sometimes the grass is greener on the other side!
