I have very recently broken my addiction to Urban Baby and am hoping this will be a better place for me. I got sick of women getting attacked just for mentioning natural childbirth, vegetarianism, feminism, etc. and had to get that negativity out of my life. That is one mean group of mommies.
I'm currently 28 weeks with my first baby, long-time veggie, planning an unmedicated Bradley midwife-assisted birth center birth, and...let's see, what other crunchy credentials do I have?...well I saw about 50 Dead shows back in the day.

I just popped in to Urbanbaby.com
It is compleatly different from MDC.
Urban Baby seemed kind of shallow.
MDC has sincerity as far as the eye can see.
Let me just say...
I love it here.
Everyone is so
I hope you love it too!
I have to tell you, MDC is the *best* site. I have been a member for less than a year, and it has already been extremely helpful to me as a parent. If I have any questions, here is where I go. The moms here really put themselves out for each other. It's not just information, there is a lot of very genuine emotional support.
I hope you enjoy it!

I know, that was pretty negative... I hope you'll find that we're (mostly) positive parenting folks around here!
There is great diversity and amazing tolerance on these boards, I've learned so much and truly I wonder what kind of "mama" I'd be without MDC.
Warmest Welcome! from me to you, and as someone already said - visit the Cloth Diapering forums!!!!
