I recently moved back to my hometown, Guelph, which has always been known as a hippy town. I guess I am an "alternative" mom, eg. I am into breastfeeding, cloth diapers and elimination communication, I had a natural birth, I co-sleep. I really want to meet other moms to be friends with but I am finding that when I go to playgroups, or classes with my baby the other moms make fun of the stuff I do (letting my baby pee in the toilet at the beginning of class and then not wearing a diaper until we leave) and even when I have met moms that aren't afraid of me they seem to just want to drink coffee and ignore their crying babies. Some are even offended by me breastfeeding in front of them. I am thinking that maybe I meet the same types of moms because I go to the same types of places eg. library, early years center, kindermusic. Any suggestions where cool moms hang out? (LaLeche league is not possible for me because it is quite late and I don't drive).
