Hmmm, my crunchy checklist
I'm sure I could list more. Fortunately, I'm doing these things because they feel right for our family. I don't think they make me better, and I mean no judgement of people doing things differently. At the moment I plan to (though I completely acknowledge that I can't garantee how it'll go with #2):
No eye profolatic, vit k only if baby is bruised
breastfeed on demand for 2+ years
considering "unweaning" DD (who will turn 3 about when the babe is born), so I may be tandeming
co-sleep, probably with both baby and DD
no artificial nipples
baby will remain intact
cloth diaper (looks like I'll have 2 in cloth for awhile)
baby led solids, nothing offered before meeting readiness signs and then only self feeding, and no purees or baby "cereal"
mostly vegetarian diet (we do fish), organic dairy products and eggs, mostly local and organic produce, etc...
Rear facing until limits on carseat, and generally the safest carseat style the baby still fits in
no babysitters - paid, family, friends, church nursery, etc until I feel like the baby will be happy with it (15 months for DD with Daddy and grandma, 18-20 months with friends, we'll see what this baby seems to need)
mostly organic/green household cleaning products and bath products
mostly wooden, cloth, wool, etc waldorf style toys
GD (or try my best at least)
probably homeschooling (though this is so far off it's hard to really say what we'll do about schooling... maybe our local Waldorf school, maybe *gasp* public school, which I honestly think served me quite well, maybe some other private school... I'm opened to what option seems to work best for our family)
On the cloth diaper discussion, I
using cloth diapers. Honestly love them. DD is 2.5 and has NEVER worn a disposable diaper! I don't even think I've ever used a disposable wipe on her actually... We did prefolds from the beginning. They were super easy to wash. They didn't smell bad. Cloth diapering in the beginning is SO easy. I second the recommendation for a diaper sprayer once they hit solid food. They're well worth the $35. Even when we've been frustrated with random bumps on the CD road, I've never considered switching to disposables.
