..not sure how I will fit in. Our parenting style is so eclectic that I haven't been able to find a community that accepts me! I am non judgemental of other parenting beliefs (it's pretty much your business after all) but haven't been viewed the same way by others. I had a natural, unmedicated birth in a hospital, son is exclusively breastfed, cloth diapered part time, and we eat organically and locally as much as possible. However, son is circ'ed, we use disposables part time, and is carried in a bjorn which I know is a no no among slingers. He has had a few vaccinations. Son also shares our bed in the early morning, but generally sleeps in a cosleeper next to me. So there you have it. I feel better now.

You're crunchier than I am - and I've been here for ages. Don't worry.<br><br>
I really don't think we all must be just alike to get along. Feel secure and happy with how you choose to parent, and enjoy the boards!

ITA! I'm new too but I think most on here have a common bond and degrees of variations. It's great! We'll learn from each other<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> Welcome!

Welcome to Mothering - glad you found the boards. I didn't consider myself very 'crunchy' at all when I got here, but the longer I stayed (and read and learned!), the crunchier I became! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> It happens a lot here. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
