I only got a 72 which is in the middle which is where I think I am.

I have had 3 unmedicated births in a hospital. I would love to have a homebirth, but I have pre-term labor issues. :

I BF, but my two older ones weaned while I was pg. My first at 14 months and my second at 25 months.

We co-sleep until around age 2, though all kids are welcome back in our bed at any time of the night.

Both boys are not circed.

My first two are vaxed, my third hasn't had any yet. I haven't decided if he will be unvaxed or selectively vaxed yet.

We eat way too much processed foods and fast foods. :

I drive a minivan, but I don't know what else I could drive with three in carseats.

I CD my third baby, the other two were in DD. I just got a new front loading washing machine too.

We do recycle, but still probably have too much regular trash.

We are working on the GD, and don't believe in CIO.

We also use the air conditoner a lot, but we live in AZ and it is around 110 here now.

Ok, I'm rather crunchy, but not 100%.

I did get 124 on the quiz, which is higher than I expected, but there's lots of stuff missing.
Where's recycling? GD? Type of transportation?

And to the mamas who had emergency C/S, adopted, or tried and tried to BF but couldn't, I think you should give yourself the points for your intentions!

I think this thread is to get to know each other better - not judge anyone!
Hehehe! I was just being playful.

I took the little quiz and got thirty.. so I guess I'm sprinkle with some oats. Hehehe.

This is all so subjective. It all depends on what you consider crunchy and how you look at it.

I got a 121 on that quiz, which is just into the super crunch category, which I know I'm not, so it just goes to show that you just can't put people into categories of crunchiness. It's too subjective.

I do breastfeed exclusively. My 2 yr old and 5 wk old are tandem nursing. I nursed my 3.5 yr old through my pregnancy with my dd, who is the now 2 yrs old, and I nursed her through my pregnancy with my 5 wk old.

I had my 2 yr old and my 5 wk old at home.

I've been cding for over 2 yrs.

We cosleep.

We don't have cable and try to limit tv.

I am homeschooling my 9 yr old.

We eat mostly organic.

We don't and won't ever own an SUV.

We recycle.

Most everyone I know is mainstream and so I am thought of as kind of whacky, by my family too. But I have known plenty who are much "crunchier" than me. I don't have a garden. I might buy organic, but too much of it is packaged, processed stuff. Amy's frozen stuff. Love Amy's, lol. And cereal bars for the kids and that kind of thing. I cosleep because I can get more sleep just rolling over to nurse the baby. I like shopping and clothes.
So, there is plenty that I do that's not that crunchy. So, it depends on who you're talking too if I'm considered crunchy or not!

I didn't know voting conserative was that uncrunchy either. I'm very conservative.

I voted for crispy and then i took the poll and got 125 which is supposedly super ultra crunchy... but i think that is wrong...I mean we can hardly ever afford to buy organic, we're just starting to recycle...sometimes i use tylenol, I've never been to a chiropracter, and I shave my armpits and legs at least once every 3 months :LOL

I am not crunchy. In fact, I came to MDC because of the AP philosphies about child rearing and discipline. I don't think that wanting to be an AP parent means having to be crunchy too.

I voted for crispy. On the quiz, I scored 110 which is "Mmm! Love that whole-grain crunch" which surprised me, but I got big points because I have unassisted births.

Crispy, I guess.
We selectively VAX
DS is circumsized and I would never not have.
We CD
DS is breastfed
We eat organic and wear it, given the opportunity
We Co-Sleep when it works
I drive a Mercedes
DH drives a monster SUV
We reycle
We are avid baby wearers

We do what works for us. That is all that matters.

I scored a 65. So I'm pretty crispy But is there a vote for crispy on the inside, soft on the outside? I have never been the type of person who had the confidence to outwardly go against the flow, and let people know that I am different than the main stream. Sad, I know. I recently just came "out of the closet" on the fact that we CD, and no one but my mother knows we coslept, want to homeschool, do home birth, etc. Because everyone I know thinks things like that are over the top, and out there. So, I usually just keep it to myself, or share my life with my online crunchy friends!

I dont know what I am, LOL, I dont see myself as being crunchy, but child oriented.

1. Do you have homebirths?
I didnt home birth, nor do I ever want to have a birth at my house, LOL, but I wouldnt mind doing it at someone elses house. I never felt comfortable in my house, but now that we have pretty much gutted it and everything is because new and clean, I feel more at home, but would still never have a birth here.(but would at someone elses house, LOL)

2. Will you circumcise future sons?
I do so for religious reasons and I have my own feelings about it, I think it is the right thing for my son and that if you are going to have it done you should really research it and debate it and what you decide is between you and your son and your God in the end, and shouldnt be up for argument with anyone else.

3. Do you use cloth diapers?
yes, though I used disposables some at first until our house was a little more finished and we had a washer, LOL. I would love to make my own if only I had a sewing machine, LOL

4. Do you observe your fertility signals using Natural Family Planning/Fertility Awareness and use that for birth control/trying to conceive?
I didnt with DS, but that was a long story, and I dont plan on having more children but if I did then I would do it this way.

5. Do you breastfeed exclusively for the first 6+ months?
I breastfed exclusively for 10 months and now he gets some beans and stuff, but very rarely.

6. Do you co-sleep?
I hadnt planned to at first but it came so natural to me I could say no, LOL

7. Do you use a sling/soft carrier?
I didnt at first because I didnt have one but when mine finally arived I did

8. Do you believe in/practice child-led weaning (even if that means breastfeeding for several years)?
yes definitely, until they are 18, LOL

9. Do you tandem nurse/nurse during your pregnancy?
I would if I was to have another child while DS was still nursing

10. Do you eat organic/whole/natural foods and limit your meat?
I dont really think much about what I eat, just eat what I like(salad and home cookin) but for DS I buy all organic whole foods, and when the kitchen is done I plan to do the same for us.

11. Do you use herbal/homeopathic remedies?
I do for DS, I dont remember the last time I was sick or had a headache that i needed medicine for.

12. Do you homeschool?
I have thought about it, especially since our school system is crap, but I am not sure, I kind of want him to socialize a little but I dont want him to have all those preasures that schools give now-a-days

13. What's your take on childhood vaccinations?
I wanted to do selective then got suckered into all of the shots, but we have been vax free since after his 6month shots!

14. Would you/have you ever breastfeed/fed someone else's baby or have someone else bf your child?
I have, because she was starving, it is a REALLY long story, but she didnt want to suckle so I ended up having to pump it. She is a poor sickly baby.

15. Do you use cloth/re-usable products for mom?
no, cant do it, I just cant, but then I kinda do, LOL, my thing is that I dont like anything bulky down there, LOL, I cant even stand to wear undies some times, LOL, but my period is really short(usually just 2 days of bleeding and then I dont have to have a pad). If I wasnt so freaked out by blood(anyones blood especially mine, LOL) I wouldnt mind washing them, LOL

Anyway, that is me, those are my choices and I think they are right for us. And not right for anyone else because we are all different, LOL

60 – 89 Pretty Crispy

I voted soggy but I am a whole lot crunchier than I would have imagined. And there isn't a lot of room for change here. I am either totally "yes" or totally "not a chance."

I got a 66 - crispy. I've been getting crunchier this past year (last time I took the quiz I got something like 40 points).

We do:

BF - exclusively for the first 6 plus months
CD (although Chloe is the first to be CD'ed)
Babywear (I own 5 slings, a snugli & a backpack!)
Gentle discipline
Would co-sleep if children desired
Made some of my own babyfood
Used FAM TTC
Organic when feasible
Herbs when feasible
Delayed vax
Recycle

But we also:

Make frequent stops for McD's fries
Eat a lot of processed foods, dairy, beef & chicken
Drive 2 cars (one of them a minivan)
Watch entirely too much television
Have entirely too many gadgets
DS was circ'ed (but if there were going to be any future DS's they would not be)
Vax (albeit delayed)
Loved my 4 (count 'em 4) epidurals
Do not use FAM TTA

Annette, are you my lost triplet? (already have a twin) I got a 69. too, and I'd picked crispy instinctively before seeing the quiz.

OK, now this is really creepy Annette! I initially posted after seeing just your score, but your next post is so me as well..

We are in love with our TiVo
DS is circ'd (DH is a surgeon, knew all the data, and still insisted, I couldn't win the arguement)
Vaxin' on schedule (I'm a ped)
and all the rest... (except I don't want an SUV)

But I also:

CD
BF for as long as DS will want to (a little irked about losing points for bottles, I WOHM and pump, pump, pump)
would tandem nurse
Drive a fuel-efficient car (and bike commute when feasible), and will buy a hybrid next.
No AC, HE washer, no paper napkins/towels

Oh Annette, come and live by me and be my friend...

Shockingly, i made it into the instant oatmeal section of the quiz! I didn't even think i was that crunchy! :LOL Co-sleeping was never an option : I bf for a whopping 5 weeks before we were both so miserable even DH couldn't take us We vac on schedule & plan to continue to do so. We do, however, recycle as much as possible (in NYC with the EVER-CHANGING recycling rules & $50 fines from the freaking garbage police if we EVER screw up! . We try to eat whole grains whenever we can. Are working towards upping our natural food & reducing our intake of processed (and diner food! I'm : cloth diapering & am ready to feel the wool love.

Well, I got a 99, so I guess I'm pretty crunchy too! Like others said though, it's a good thing I wasn't asked about my TV or car

Crunchy things we do: recycle, buy organic produce when possible, belong to a CSA, compost, don't use herbicides or pesticides, selectively vac our pets, use natural cleaning products or make our own, use it up & wear it out before we buy more, buy organic or all natural meat & dairy when possible, all natural fibers for clothing & linens, & use wheat litter instead of clay litter.

Crunchy things we *plan* to do: Since Emi's not due until 9/04 I can't take total credit for these, but we plan to do natural birth, selectivly vac, cloth diaper, bf, co-sleep, sling, do child-led weaning, homeschool, & if she'd been a boy we were not circumcising.

Un-crunchy things we do: Drive an SUV (which is currently broke ) and a very old, gas guzzler Ram pick-up, eat meat, give our pets inexpensive food, going out to eat (this is our biggest downfall budget wise), have basic cable, DH has lots of electronics & toys, & still shop at Walmart. Although I'm trying to less & less I swear! :

Yet another great thread. Thanks for starting it!

I'm brand new here and I'm already loving this community! What a fun thread!
Well before I start I will say that I would probably be alot more crunchy if it weren't for dh. He kinda keeps me more down to earth, KWIM?

1. Do you have homebirths?
No, haven't and wouldn't.

2. Will you circumcise future sons?
Yes, my son is circ'd and I don't regret it.

3. Do you use cloth diapers?
No. I never even considered CDing til Freddie was about 5 months, and I did start getting curious. I would love to try it but unfortunately we just don't have the money to get started, plus we live in an apt. so we don't have our own washer. For a second child though, if we had a house, I would most certainly give it a try.

4. Do you observe your fertility signals using Natural Family Planning/Fertility Awareness and use that for birth control/trying to conceive?
Not really, but I won't take anything hormone altering, like the pill or anything.

5. Do you breastfeed exclusively for the first 6+ months?
Yes, still going strong at 8 months.

6. Do you co-sleep?
Yes, I sleep in a twin bed w/ ds every night.

7. Do you use a sling/soft carrier?
No but I wish I had known more about baby wearing when ds was still little. I'll definitely do it w/ my next baby.

8. Do you believe in/practice child-led weaning (even if that means breastfeeding for several years)?
Not really, I would hope to follow ds's cues but there is a limit I'm not really willing to go past. I really want him weaned by 1 yr, 1 1/2 year.

9. Do you tandem nurse/nurse during your pregnancy?
Haven't had that situation but would if I did.

10. Do you eat organic/whole/natural foods and limit your meat?
No, but I would if I had the money. I do limit my meat intake though.

11. Do you use herbal/homeopathic remedies?
No, but again, this is something I'd like to learn more about. I do avoid taking medicine as much as possible though.

12. Do you homeschool?
No but am considering it. It's still awhile away.

13. What's your take on childhood vaccinations?
Vaxed on schedule except for HepB which we opted not to get.

107?!?!?!!?
I wouldn't have thought I'm that crunchy. I voted for the middle ground before I took that quiz.
I do think I'm crispy crunchy but I didn't know I was supa crunchy. I guess it's because when I'm around DH I feel like wacky crunchy and I come to MDC and feel like a part timer.

I'm super ultra crunchy. And I know people think of me that way, but I know people alot crunchier than me. But I guess compared to main stream - I'm the super crunch.

135 - Crunchy mama...
I loved cloth dipes- used them on both....still hang out in here on occasion because I just loved it. Had a garage sale yesterday and sold the last of my stash
I knew 2 CD'ing mamas iRL and they were only mildly crispy...very mild! But it was fun having that in common with ANYONE IRL!!!

I think that is totally crunch- very efficient! We're moving from a standard house to an apartment because it is much more efficient and gentler on the environment. takes less land, less energy to heat/cool (because of insultated people around you) If it is near town you use less gas than if you lived out int he country and had to drive to town daily.

Crunchy can be living in the wilderness off the land- but it can also be making the most use of space and energy by living in a small area in town.
