A lot of things! Babywearing, cosleeping, breastfeeding, cloth diapering, and we let Henry sleep on his tummy sometimes too. When it comes to stuff later, I plan to EBF for 6 months and BF past a year. I also do extended rear facing for carseats. Basically I do the exact opposite of what my sister does!
Both DS & Giana are tummy sleepers, have been pretty much from day one. When Gia was in the NICU, they actually had her sleeping on her belly as well. At first I was kinda shocked cause I thought it was a parental cardinal sin but was told it helped her breathe better. Something about it making her breathe deeper & take in more oxygen (they were working on stabilizing her sat levels at the time). That pretty much put me at ease about the whole tummy sleeping thing...and also the fact she could hold and turn her head really early.
I also nursed...and in my fam, thats def different. I pumped for DS but actually BF'ing with Gia and being successful with it was an awesome surprise.
How I hang my clothes in my closet. Does that count? I started putting the hangers in backwards so Jocelyn wouldn't rip my clothes down and it kind of stuck after that. I also organize them not by color but by season, lol.
As far as baby stuff goes, I am the only one in my family that has cloth diapered.
Different from people I know. Cloth diapering, baby wearing as far as baby stuff. The way I say things...dh makes fun of me bc the way I say hammock, salsa and others I swear I'm right and he is wrong!
I've breastfed for longer than any of my friends with children. Also baby wearing and letting McKinley sleep in bed with me are definitely things that are different in this area.
As far as other stuff goes, I let my older kids bathe together still (I get a lot of grief for that one since they are 6 and almost-3 and are of opposite genders). I keep my movies alphabetized and separated by DVD vs bluray. And then further separated by kid vs adult. Also, I don't wear underwear unless its that time of the month
