I was raised in an Attachment Parenting household, but I had never really been involved in the all-natural lifestyle until I went to college in Northern California. There, my eyes were opened to an interest in composting, natural soaps and detergent and the Dirty Dozen. But I have to admit: the idea of cloth pads, which I learned about only once I started working with Mothering, still kind of made me say “ew.” I was one of those women (you know who you are!) who thought to herself, “That’s a cool idea – but it’s definitely not for me!”
