What is natural parenting? Today parents no longer fit nicely into the hippie, crunchy, or tree-hugger category when we choose to raise our children more naturally. Many of us are modern, educated, working parents who choose to go back to the basic parenting styles that our ancestors believed in That is not to say that being a hippie, crunchy, or tree-hugger parent makes you uneducated - just that many modern green mom's don't consider ourselves hippies, crunchy or tree-huggers. The point is that we all share a common belief. However, our blogs may feature different areas that are most important to us. We are all learning how to advocate for our children and the environment through our blogs.
Many of us support breastfeeding, cloth diapering, baby wearing, natural childbirth, co-sleeping, organic living, and the aspects of our lives that lead to a more natural, eco-friendly and healthy lifestyle for our children and ourselves. While we may not practice all of the aspects of this lifestyle - we all have the ability to learn from one another.
