Or just your Vagina, LOL! Mrs Pil's words! Do you do HOmeopathy, skip vaxing? Breastfeed for longer than is the "norm"? Eat natural foods?

You know, I do a lot of those things. And I'm a midwife. So yeah, I thought I was crunchy in other areas of my life. Then I found this and decided I'm not really all that crunchy!

I cloth diaper the babies, don't vax, use some natural and homeopathic remedies as well as some conventional methods. We eat mostly organic/natural foods only that we get through our co-op and have delivered from the organic farms but I do pick up a few non-organic/natural food products at the grocery store. We also homeschool, equate spirituality/nature, and are interested in sustainable living/building. Most people I know have said I'm the crunchy/hippie type since I was a kid so I guess it must be somewhat true.

yes, we practice full-term breastfeeding, will tandem nurse and nurse through pregnancy, do not vax, co-sleep, babywear, GD, planning on homeschooling and use homeopathy/nontraditional medicine as much as possible. I'm trying to get DH on board with organic/whole foods, but it's taking some time.

I'm not all the crunchy! I breastfeed and follow child led weaning and we co-sleep. That's about all my crunchiness

I'm off-the-charts crunchy. I've even researched composting toilets in case I can ever talk DH into it! B)

I crunch. Hard. Abbey you will undoubtedly find this funny but I was talking today with DH about family cloth and composting toilets. He says absolutely no but I did just convince him to start an organic garden so we'll see what the future holds
