Today’s OPP is from Mark and he needs your help! Here’s what he said: 


Yi guys,

My wife is pregnant with our son and I think she is already ruining his and our lives. She has this plan to go all natural with everything from birth to raising him and I think it's stupid. She wants to use a midwife and give birth at home with no epidural. She wants to quit her job so she can stay home and exclusively breastfeed the baby and never use bottles. She wants to use cloth diapers so none of the chemicals or gels in diapers touch his skin. Down the road she plans to grow vegetables and make her own baby food so he never eats any processed foods. She refuses to let him have any type of plastic toys. Guys, I love her but she has gone completely insane with this stuff since she got pregnant. There is a reason people use real doctors and have all the things she wants to ban, and that's because those are the things that work. I feel like all of this is going to make our lives a living hell. I grew up with all of it and turned out just fine. How do I get her to wake up and realize that she is going overboard with all this crap?-Mark


What can he do to convince his wife that she is going overboard?
