140. I think last time I took this, I actually scored 145 b/c I was ec'ing Liam. I gave up on that and went back to diapers most of the time w/ some ec'ing once in a while. I do make my own diapers, but I also buy them.

1. Do you have homebirths?

10 points for “yes” (with a midwife in attendance)

2. Will you circumcise future sons?

5 points for “no”

3. Do you use cloth diapers?

10 points if “yes” (wash your own)

4. Do you observe your fertility signals using Natural Family Planning/Fertility Awareness and use that for birth control/trying to conceive?

0 points for “no” (wouldn’t consider it). I don't trust it for birth control, but I think my method of ttc is pretty natural/crunchy: having sex as often as possible and letting it happen.

5. Do you breastfeed exclusively for the first 6+ months?

10 points if “yes” (or do you intend to)

6. Do you co-sleep?

10 points for “yes” (all night every night)

7. Do you use a sling/soft carrier?

5 points for “yes”

8. Do you believe in/practice child-led weaning (even if that means breastfeeding for several years)?

15 points for “yes” (complete child-led weaning)

9. Do you tandem nurse/nurse during your pregnancy?

10 points for “yes” (nurse during pgcy and tandem nurse)

10. Do you eat organic/whole/natural foods and limit your meat?
Quote:
15 points for “yes” (grow own/buy organic, shop only at health food store, grind own wheat, vegetarian, etc.)

10 points for “yes” (grow some of own food, buy organic, use whole wheat flour, bake own bread, eat some meat occasionally)

5 points for “yes” (try to buy natural, whole grain foods, etc.)
I'm not sure how many points to give myself here. I eat 100% organic and 100% of my grains are whole. I limit my meat. I grow some of my own organic food. I shop only at the health food store. I don't grind my own wheat. I'm not completely vegetarian. I don't bake my own bread, although I used to use my bread machine and I want to use it again. I eat a small amount of organic poultry and tuna. So, in summation, I definitely do more than just "try to buy natural whole grain foods etc," and my answer to the original question (Do you eat organic/whole/natural foods and limit your meat?) is a definite and unqualified YES, but I can't get 10 points because I don't bake my own bread at the moment, so I guess I'll give myself 7 points. If someone thinks this is unfair please feel free to "dock" me.

11. Do you use herbal/homeopathic remedies?

10 points if “yes” (very rarely see a regular doctor)

12. Do you homeschool?
Quote:
2 points for “thinking about it”

0 points for “no” (wouldn’t consider it).
Hmm. Another tricky one. I'm half way between "thinking about it" and "wouldn't consider it." My intention is to send my kids to public school, but it isn't true that I would never homeschool. I would do it if I had to, like if public school involved something that I completely refused to accept. I'll give myself 1 point but again, feel free to dock me.

13. What's your take on childhood vaccinations?

15 points for no vaccines

14. Would you/have you ever breastfeed/fed someone else's baby or have someone else bf your child?

10 points if yes (have or someone has bf your baby)

15. Do you use cloth/re-usable products for mom?
Quote:
5 points if yes (buy own)

2 points if thinking about it

0 points if no.
I use a combo of re-usable cloth pads (I buy them, I don't make my own) and disposable pads. I'll give myself 2 points.

Post your total
120

120, but I'm not sure if I cheated with the tandem nursing question. I haven't tandem nursed, but I would, so I gave myself the points.

I'm pretty crispy, right on the border of the Mmm love that whole grain crunch. I work part-time, so my kids get bottles, and we do vax some, so that really brought down the score. Plus I had all my kids in the hospital.
