We're considering a move from Vermont to RI with our two year old son and soon to be newborn. I'm wondering how "natural" and "alternative" Mama's and Papa's feel about RI. Is there access to supportive communities, parent groups, etc. What about schools and pre-schools? Homeschooling groups, etc. Are there Dad's groups that would support my baby wearing partner? If anyone out there could let us know what their day to day looks like that would be great. We'll be in the Providence area initially but I think eventually we'd like to go further south where I believe there may be more access to the outdoors. Overall, do you feel RI offers the support you need as an "alternative" parent? By alternative I mean extended breastfeeding, co-sleeping, child directed learning, baby wearing, natural eating, etc.
We did live in RI temporarily with our son for a few months. We've got a doctor that we love down there and I know where the Whole Foods' are! What other resources are there?
