Natural Parenting Groups

The cloth diaper store I work at is starting a natural parenting group. We're going to meet every other week (to begin with, anyways).
I'm wondering -- what would YOU like to see in a natural parenting group? Things you think we should talk about?

Some of the obvious ones:
breastfeeding, with support from a lactation consultant
cloth diapering
baby-led weaning
natural toys (and how to convince the relatives to buy them!)

I appreciate any and all ideas! Thanks everyone!

Re: Natural Parenting Groups

The effects of TV on infant brain development. Ways to nurture yourself as a mother while still caring for your LO. What bath/baby products people like that are natural. Support for pumping mothers. Babywearing, trying out different wraps, slings, etc. We used to have a group that met at the cloth diapering store and it went out of business. I miss it so much. Also, sharing your birth stories outloud is so empowering and really helped me process just how strong we are a women.

Re: Natural Parenting Groups

Co-sleeping? Baby-wearing?

Re: Natural Parenting Groups

sounds like a fun group. what about making your own baby foods? also, how to apply natural parenting with more than one child. i know many couples that really struggled with that topic after a second was born.
