I'm not sure where to start. I have rewritten that first sentence so many times, I decided just to be honest. I guess I will start with some random thoughts.
I am the last person any of my friends and family expected to become "crunchy". I think its fun to refer to myself as a granola, but in reality, I think of myself as someone who tries to go with what feels right and has strong research behind it.
But what does it mean to be crunchy, granola, or a hippie? I think that answer is a little different for every person. My friends call me crunchy because I planned and achieved an unmedicated birth, I practice Attachment Parenting, I intend to breastfeed to full natural term, I bedshare, I used Baby Led Weaning to introduce solids (after 6 months), we opted out of a couple vaccines and use homeopathics in place of them, I cloth diaper (used organic diapers before that), I babywear most of the time, I am slowly replacing all our household products with natural and safe alternatives, and who knows what else will happen!
This blog is all about those changes I have made in order to have a better environment for my family. One post at a time, I will share what made me decide to do (or not do) something, and how I went about doing that.
I will never judge a parent for doing what they believe is best for their children and family. I hope to be a source of information when you are researching, that is all. What is best for my family is not necessarily going to be best for your family. Some days I feel like supermom, other days, not so much. I will try to share both sides of myself in the hopes that I can remind other moms that they aren't alone.
I look forward to sharing my journey with you!
