Parenting styles which one are you and why did you choose it.
CONVENTIONAL (previously 'traditional')= typically uses formula (possibly breast fed). Uses disposible diapers, vaccinates, uses stroller/babyswing/bouncers, baby sleeps in own room, circumsizes(if boys), uses many commercial products(laundry soap/tampons/hand sanitizer, ect), traditional hospital birth with meds, ect...
Natural=breastfeed/pump/donor milk, cloth diaper, wear baby, no/delay vaccines, no circ(if boys), more holistic health care, more homeade(mama cloth/laundry detergent/essential oils, ect), home birth/birthing center/no meds, homeschool, co sleep/bedshare, ect
just go with which ever catagory you MOSTLY fit. I know some might have alittle of both.
In between...extended breastfeeding until 3 to 4 yrs old even if I'm pg, used to cloth diaper until they nice ones finaly gave out after three kids, wore my babies all the time, usually in a wrap or sling I sewed myself (back when I only had one infant I had the time and space to sew!) used a stroller only if walking the older kids to school (about a mile), homeschooled for 5 years, make laundry detergent, use mama cloth, no meds for childbirth, cosleep.
But....yes on circ and vaxing, we eat a mix of homemade and processed foods, kids love McDonalds, I work PT and the 3-year-old goes to preschool 9 hours a week so I can nap in the morning (I often work until VERY late).
I guess I'm pretty natural until they are about 3, then we get more "traditional." I never did the natural parenting thing as a lifestyle, it's just what works best for us for many resons. Primarially becase it is easier, less expensive, and better for the environment.
