I'm not sure where this crunchiness comes from because I don't remember being raised particularly crunch-ily but once I started researching home birth I came upon other natural alternatives to mainstream parenting choices and it made sense. I don't think I'm extreme (there are some really committed folks out there) but I suppose I do more than others. I just want to share a little bit of what we choose to do with our son.

Vaccinations are such a hard topic to know everything about. Who do you trust when there's so much information from both sides? After reading a lot about vaccinating and side-effects, ingredients, injuries, etc. we decided not to do it until we were completely sure we had to, which might end up to be never. While you can always give a vaccine, you can never take it back. tokki hasn't received anything since birth (no eye ointment, no Vit K shot, nothing at all) and we don't plan on considering any other vaccinations until he is older. I started him off exclusively breastfeeding (which is the first and best immunization) and he hasn't been sick once and is absolutely healthy. :)
