Re: What "natural" parenting choice freaked your family and friends out the most?

Almost everyone was shocked by the cloth diapers. And now, some of them use cloth.

My mother was bothered by breastfeeding. "How long are you going to do that...?" was asked on more than one occasion.

MIL is irritated by co-sleeping, feeding on demand and babywearing. And calls the babies, "big sucks" for "needing" those things. As in, "Oh, you're fine, you big suck, you don't need her (being me)," and tries to rock them to sleep while they fuss, or better yet, tries to leave them to CIO. Not cool. Yet, she supports our diet choices and selective vaxing...
