Naturalist / Nudist Mamas!
How 'bout your babes? How many keep your baby's bum out in the open as much as possible?
AFM i've never been to any nudist type places, but here at home we're not that into clothes unless cold...why bother?! I definitely cannot sleep w/even a hint of clothes on. My LO is only 6wks and we cloth dipe, but we keep him cloth free when its warn enough.
I was only publicly nude once that I remember, at a spa that I went to with my best friend in Arizona. We were in a large outdoor hot tub. The women had one area and the men another. I felt so free. The women there came in all shapes and sizes and ages and a few colors, and strangely it was like being nude just removed all pretenses about it. We were WOMEN and we were all beautiful.
My husband is not a nudist at all (and can be a pain if I'm ever nude in the house remotely near an unshaded window, even though the bedroom looks out onto the roof of the neighboring house - only if someone were sitting on the roof could they see anything). So this is not something I share with him, I'm sorry to say.
I REALLY feel you on the bathing suit issue. I am looking forward to checking out the nudie camps this year because of that. Going to the beach, I would just keep adjusting my suit, and wondering if I look silly. Plus you never know who you are gong to bump into at a public beach. I'm glad I live near a more private lake... my parents do have a private beach but I can't shed the clothes due to close neighbors, although I have kind of camouflaged the fact that I'm topless/sunbathing.
Clothes make me SO much more self conscious. How they're cut, how they constrict me, I think about it all the time in public. Its like I'm supposed to fit the clothes when they are supposed to fit my body.
I guess I was born bare and it's what I know to feel right. So yep, I'm hoping to venture out to be free. I don't care to really meet people, although it would be awesome to meet other families (there are family camps, no single men, etc) I just wanna do my thing. Haha!
My Dad's a part-time nudist, too, the only unconventional thing about him, so I guess it runs in the family! In expectation of this, we're planning to do EC part time.
The only article of clothing I must have is a bra for going out anywhere. *Sigh,* my knockers are far too large to be free
Myself... more days than not I just throw a sun dress on (with no underwear under it) to keep myself from getting arrested while doing my lawn but I wish I didn't have to do that much!
|Dont worry, its not like Ive never seen a naked male before.|
Except maybe my own kids, but that's while they are still nursing and to them those dangly things have nothing to do with anything other than milk production!
Me too, me too!I gonna join!
I can't really call myself a nudist mom, but I'm nudist adjacent...how's that?
I sleep in the buff and would spend most home time nude if I could. We live with my grandmother and she would frown upon it. So, to be nice, I don't. I do not limit my nudity around my 6 yo son and won't until either he or I become uncomfortable with it.
My DH is kind of the same way. But if he sleeps by himself he wears clothes.
I love being naked or at least half naked and so does DS. DH is not really comfortable without underwear or a robe on. DH is always half-jokingly calling me an exhibitionist because I don't pay to much attention to walking past windows when naked. I feel like it is my house and I am not doing anything lewd in front of an open window so if people don't want to see me naked then they should stop staring into my window
It is often to cold to be fully naked at home and since we live communally with my DH's family my one vote to keep the house warmer (less a/c in summer and more heat in winter) doesn't make a difference
I pretty much sleep naked or with the most underwear on We co-sleep with a side-cared crib. I am going back to more naked sleeping since DS is bigger and sleeping through the night so there is not a lot of little toes pulling at my pubes while he nurses (which is really not comfortable ) DH sleeps in underwear only and DS sleeps in sleep diaper and jammies as he refuses to keep a blanket on or pull one on himself. However he loves napping naked or with just a t-shirt on and really wants to sleep naked so I may get him a duvet this fall and let him sleep in just a diaper if he is still using one. Would love to here how other nudist LO's sleep and how mama's keep them warm at night?

I have a question please, Im not a naturalist mum, i cant bare (get it) to sleep with pants or socks or a bra on, but that doesnt count. Im just wondering how you get over being nakey around other people?! Better yet, seeing other people naked whom you really dont want to see naked, I know its the mindset..but I dont have it, can you enlightenment a bit on how you see it? Im very interested
Hi MOM!!~~~ I AM SWISS, and i remember as a child,hiking the mountains near Austria,with my entire family,almost nude... I mean,we were wearing sturdy leather sandels~~.But that was all !!!~~~.it felt great ! .).........Now, many people that were raised in the U. S. and in England,for example,,are raised the old Victorian way,that teaches that certain body parts are much worse than others,,,in fact nasty .Now many parents were raised that way,and demand such of their kids.But actually,if our kids are taught such,they grow to be saddled with guilt and shame,and thus anxiety
.So if one raeally considers the facts, about the whole question of nudity, What is there ,that is un-natural?....there ts nothing "wrong,"with the body.It can take one a long time to accept one's own body..........Again ,this is because of programming.
~~~I am a family counselor,yoga instructor,vegan,lactation consultant. We have sports,music,plays,tree climbing to tree-houses,,co-sleep and home-school ,,all while nude.This is an honest and mentally healthy way of life.I have a few other posts on this page. I hope that we can communicate,and please feel free to send me a message anytime.
