nooo! @Cricket99 its Pampers 4 Lyfe at our house! They were the only ones that didn't make DD have terrible diaper rash or terrible blow outs. Now, Honest Company on the other hand, those were the most completely worthless diapers I ever had the misfortune to purchase-I get ragey just thinking about the money wasted.
However, I don't blame you one bit...$12 for a month's supply of diapers sounds like a dream situation!!

I (personally) have no problem with either term "natural" or "unmedicated." However, I do understand why some people do. Having a baby is the most natural thing there is, and for some women using the term "natural" only for unmedicated births is offensive. Yes, using medication during childbirth isn't "natural" per se, but neither is birthing in a hospital with an OB, if you want to go that route.
Also, some women use the term "natural birth" as almost a badge of honor, which can suggest that using pain relief makes a women "less than" those that don't. So it is a sensitive issue for many women.
@madcouplewithabox Like I said, I don't have a preference for terms at all. But I disagree with you regarding your last statement. If you're going to use the verbatim definition of "natural" using an OB, hospital, monitor, etc is not natural either. The setting itself is not "natural" and does not "exist in nature" and is "made by humankind!"
I agree that you should use the terms that you like, but I think it's important to recognize why others feel differently.

scatteringashes said:Also, related UO but I swear not pointed at you (probably, I guess depending on your ideology): GMOs are the only way we're gonna keep food supply up for an increasing population. The amount of scare-mongering people do because it's "not natural" is nonsense. Nothing about the world we live is natural. Air conditioning isn't natural and drains resources, but I don't see people clamoring to give that up.
