My name is Lerin- I'm 27, married with 2 girls- 6 yrs and 5 months. I am a practicing yogini. I started organic gardening last summer, and have always tried to eat mindfully. I was homeschooled, and always wanted to do the same with my kids. While I did co-sleep (to this day still about half the time) with oldest, and breastfed until she self-weaned at 18 mos. natural parenting stopped there. But we live and we learn. A couple of years ago, I became very passionate about the environment, and it started a whole new lifestyle for me.
I feel like I got new start with the birth of my youngest. While I didn't birth at home (the thought did cross my mind and was an option on the table for some time) I did do it naturally and drug free this time. Along with breastfeeding and co-sleeping, this time around we threw cloth diapers into the mix, as well as very selective vaccinations.
