15 signs you are raising a Hippy baby


How many of these describes your child?

Alternative, Attachment parent, Holistic, Natural, free range, hippy or crunchy. Whatever label you prefer it conjures up an image while stereotypical, isn't always entirely inaccurate. When you are a bit ‘alternative’ yourself you are often on the look out for like minded mothers, scouring the baby groups for the one mum that might approach parenting the way you do, and the best way to identify them, is to look at their babies.
