Re: Time Magazine bf cover controversy

The thing that bothers me is the intentional shock-value. I feel like it undermines the goal of normalizing breastfeeding when you portray it in its "extreme", and then imply that a woman is not "mom...

Re: Lawmakers want more autism training for teachers

Next, they need to work on the bus drivers :mad: . A few months back, Bobby got written up for stimming! I understand that they need to maintain order on the bus, but FFS, what do they expect from a...

Re: Lawmakers want more autism training for teachers

I think it's awesome! Bobby isn't mainstreamed yet and probably won't be for a couple more years, but I worry about what kind of teacher he will have when the time comes. One of my close friends is a...

Re: Autism Connected To Genes?

First, this is not a study, it is her review of other studies. Being heavy on the conjecture and light on the data, she presents nothing more than a possible theory, with no explanation of...

Re: Nutella must pay parents who thought chocolate spread was healthy.

Okay, I get that Nutella's ad was misleading, but as the saying goes "Common sense isn't all that common." Reading the label shows that Nutella is literally the icing on the toast of an already...

Re: Government Assistance and diapers

Same here. Bobby really didn't get rashes much, but Loni and James sure did! Blistery rashes, no matter how well the diapers were rinsed. I finally narrowed it down to the minerals in our hard water....

Re: Government Assistance and diapers

Those 'sposie prices are over-inflated. James wears Pampers size 4, which I buy from Amazon for .20/diaper. I spend about $40/month to diaper him, but technically it has cost me nothing so far...

Re: What wouldn't or haven't you done again regarding infants.

Oh man, I am but a shadow of my old self, LOL! The old cloth-diapering, anti-vaxing, anti-spanking, soy-eating vegetarian has evolved into the new disposable-diapering, pro-vaxing, occasionally...

Re: Any moms doing delayed vaccination?

We won't tell someone they are "wrong" for not vaxing on schedule, but we will point out why a particular argument or source of information may not be accurate. I am a former non-vaxer, and happen to...

Re: Austim risk linked to gene mutations

Actually, that's not a fact. The only heavy metal that has ever been present in vaccines (ethyl mercury) is virtually eliminated from the pediatric schedule. If you are also referring to aluminum, it...

Re: The dangers of potty training

Ditto. Ds1, in spite of his developmental delays, was a piece of cake to train: just before his 4th birthday he decided he wanted to wear underwear just like his best buddy; he up and trained himself...

Re: Autism Connected To Genes?

Honestly, I don't this notion will die out any time soon. I find that "gene denialists" don't seem to understand that "genetic" doesn't necessarily refer to heredity; it can also refer to mutations,...

Re: The dangers of potty training

Re: Yelling is the new spanking

Re: the latest research on epidurals

Same here. With both of my VBACs I labored naturally for 18 and 21 hours respectively, before "caving" and getting an epidural. It didn't do much for the pain (back labor. lucky me), but it did even...
