I didn't taste anything. I blended it with strawberries, yogurt, and bananas. couldn't even tell it was in there

planning an intervention free hospital birth... last time I had the IV for GBS, so going to try "the garlic protocol" to try and avoid that this time. no eye goop, no hep B. we do the vitamin K though.

our son will remain intact.

I breastfeed exclusively for 6 months before solids, and will probably be tandeming with dd#2

we used cloth diapers for 2 years and I've been on a hiatus since getting pg this time. I will probably go back to it when he is born but I'm not positive. for some reason I have lost the CD love...

I am open to cosleeping if baby wants it, or crib sleeping if they don't. I have had one of each sleeping preference so I know how different they can be!

babywearing, again if the baby likes it. dd1 it was a lifesaver, dd2 never got into it as much. although with 3 kids I think it might be more of a necessity for ME whether or not he likes it

we delay/selectively vax.

we are planning on homeschooling.

home birth

no circ (if applicable)

planting the placenta

ebf to 12+ months/tandem nurse (i still can't wrap my head around this, but dd is has her own titties fan club, weaning would break her little heart)

i do oral vitamin k supplements for the first six weeks


babywearing...a lot!

selective/delayed vax

baby led solids

i've considered cd, but honestly my babywearing habit is pricey enough. can't imagine trying to sell db on another stash.

LAMamma - i would love to come over, take a bath and then scrub your tub. it sounds like the ritz at your joint. and i hope they make little twin-sized squeegees so they can help mama out!

Here is a map I find very helpful that outlines what states offer what exceptions:
