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

Hmm, this is tough. My family really hasn't been freaked out by anything. They have questioned some things, but once I talk breifly about it they're like "well sounds like a good idea" and then SIL is doing it 2 weeks later
They really could not understand cloth when we started but now all love it. So I guess if I had to pick 1 thing that would be it.

I would have to say mama cloth and extended rear facing they're not fully on board with yet either, but they don't tell me I'm crazy or anything like that

Pretty much everything. My mom said "you just like to jump on the bandwagon of something different, you should do some research and you'll see you're wrong" WTH?!?! If she only knew that I spend most nights researching my parenting choices.

Surprisingly the one thing that has caused the most drama is ERFing. My mom just seems to think im depriving my son of seeing out the car window....sorry I just don't think him watching everything out the car window is more important then his safety.

Also, ds turned one at the beginning of the month and I've gotten the "have you made a dr. appointment yet for his needles?" the funny thing is, ds has every other vax up to 6 months but for some reason I just can't bring myself to make the appointment to get the next round of vax's...i have an un-easy feeling about it.
