SO, I think it is worthwhile to point out when & how "mainstream" America is led astray.

Also, I really didn't see this as a "crunchier-than-thou" thing (and I have seen that here before). I saw it as more of a "frustration with the mainstream" thing.
ITA... I also see that part of the problem is that these people may "seem" happy but is that just becuase they don't know any better? I mean if all you've had is "hershey's" all you life you really don't know what you're missing in Organic Dark Chocolate like Durango

acrathbun... do you have an research supporting the Ezzo hazards? I need to add to my library

I went to a shower a month ago and the new mom got a swing, bouncer, swing/bouncer, walker, jumper ect. When she asked why a babe needs so much stuff one of the women said, "Whatever it takes to get it to shut up!" Another mom kept calling her 2 year old the devil and was soooo glad she wasn't there. Then when I went to discreetly nurse my 11month old, a mom (whose son is dd's age) exclaimed , "Ugggh! I can't believe you're still doing THAT!"

After all of the horror, and most of the people had gone home, the new mom to be told me how great it was that I was BFing and was asking alot of questions and for advice ect. I was soooo happy!!!
