A mom I know dropped out of college a year before getting her degree and worked full-time at a taco shop when pregnant so she would be able to be a stay-at-home mom. She is one of the smartest women I know, speaks multiple languages, and reads philosophy in her... Continue reading

Sounds like a very interesting book-I'll have to check it out! I'm an 80's baby myself, but heard about the Nestle thing. It's amazing how widespread formula use remains despite it's cost, both economic and in human lives and health. Amazing and sad.

I don't know about you, but I'm already having one of those Mondays that feels like a Monday. So I think I'll make some yogurt cake later- it takes about 5 minutes, I don't even measure the ingredients really, and it tastes delicious. Definitely the kind of pick-me-up I need!... Continue reading

Saturday just seems like a good day for something silly. And it's alliterative, so it must be cool, right? My wonderful husband got me an iPod Touch for Christmas, and I play on it one-handed while Baby is nursing. Here are a few of my favorite, free, fun, iPhone or... Continue reading

As I searched for articles to include in yesterday's post, I came across evidence of what seemed to be an epidemic of co-sleeping deaths in Milwaukee, WI. Here are my thoughts: There are a lot of idiots in the world, and unfortunately many of them are parents. And apparently many... Continue reading

@Lauren- Odd and kind of sad! Now I wish I had more experience watching other moms take care of their babies! None of my friends have babies yet, so sometimes it still feels like I'm all alone in being a breastfeeding mom. I defintely agree with you about online moms-reading your blog and a few others now and also before I got up the courage to start my own blog definitely helped me feel like I'm part of a community of moms!

Great article-I rarely agree with the NYTimes, so it's nice to see them get something right for a change, lol. Do you know anything about the almond theory she mentions? I have never heard of that.

My son was tongue tied too and everyone treated it like it was no big deal-luckily I had such an ample supply and his tongue tie must not have been very bad, because we didn't need to have it cut. I wonder if some of the nipple pain could've been avoided though. We were told that basically and pediatrician could do it- I didn't realize things were so different in England! Good for you though staying so persistent and getting your baby the medical procedure he needed even when others thought you were wrong!

A recent CBS news poll, (http://ow.ly/17tpa) found that 9 out of 10 Americans said if they had to do it all over again, they would marry their same spouse. I thought this was sweet, but also interesting given the fact that the divorce rate in the US is much higher... Continue reading
