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

Everything!

we used a midwife
have never had an ultrasound
had a homebirth
wanted no visitors for a few days after the birth
no vax
no circ
no vit k shot, eye goop, etc
we are not fans of doctors, go rarely only to have it on paper that we went
that I sah and will with the kids
we will homeschool
my son has been wearing an amber teething necklace since he was 4 months old
we cloth diaper
we Ec'd (until ds didn't want to anymore)
that I continued to nurse him even though I wasn't able to bf him properly (no milk-IGT)
that at 25 months he still has his bottle (I would still be nursing him were I able)
that a majority of his toys are natural
that he doesn't know the characters to Sesame Street
that he is still rear-facing
that we've co-sleeped from day one and still will with our upcoming newborn

That's just parenting stuff.
We are "mocked" for eating completely organic, mostly raw, mostly vegan and live a very crunchy, green different lifestyle.

Fortunately, as time has passed they have just gotten used to it.
