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.

    So to parents who are traditional, do you research and then srill decide to stay traditional? Or do you tend not to research?

    Natural with a splash of traditional

    We co-sleep at night and crib sleep during the day, use disposable (chemical free hemp) and cloth diapers, breastfeed, late introduction to solids, baby massage/skin-to-skin, baby wear, no vaccines, no circ, no CIO, drug free birth (in hospital, delayed cord cut, no eye gunk or shots, no baths, skin-to-skin, etc), home made foods, organic foods, ERF, natural chemical free cleaning products, natural soaps and shampoos, etc.
