I live in Lawrenceville and I see the midwives at the Kaiser office in Duluth. I have to say the midwives are AMAZING. One of them used to be a Bradley Instructor and home birth midwife in Washington State. Unfortunately I can't say the same thing about the OBs in the practice, but I just avoid seeing them. I haven't been able to find a practice that has both wonderful midwives and OBs. I am not worried about having to deal with them for a c-section because the only way I...

Hello Everyone! I didn't start using cloth on my first one until he was 4 months old. I am in love with the pocket diapers for him. I am now pregnant again and plan on using cloth from the beginning. Once the new baby gets to about 18-20 pounds I can just use the diapers I have but I don't have a clue what to get for when he is little. But I am full of questions! I will try to list them out, answers to any of them would be great! It is important to note that I am...
I make all my inserts with microfleece, but am now in need of some hemp inserts. They are so expensive to buy!! Does anyone here make their own? Where do you get the fabric? How many layers thick do you make them? I found some hemp on this website, but have no idea if it is a good price: http://verybaby.com/cloth-diaper-fab...a31cb5a14a1ac5 How many inserts will a yard make?
I also buy unbleached flour at my local grocery store, usually in the store brand. It usually runs about $3 a bag.
My oldest is offically weaned. He weaned himself and although I am glad he did so before my next one is born, I still feel a little sad. I loved nursing and will miss that special time each night. The past few nights we have been snuggling up on the couch before bed and reading some stories to try to make up for it. They just grow up so fast . I will know for our new baby that it makes my life and his life much easier to just let him wean himself instead of trying to...
Name: Emily Due date: May 29th Older Children and Ages: Noah 18 months on 2/6 Birth Plans: Bradley Birth with a midwife Anything else you'd like to add: I had a great birth with my first. I have been diagnosed with a uterine synecaie this time and I am currently researching how this could possibly effect my birthing experience. I am so glad to have found a supportive group of pregnant women who don't think I am "crazy":
Did anyone have one of these while pregnant. I went to see a specialist who mentioned the possibility of an emergency c-section. Thankfully, my midwife says that is the last thing they have on their mind. Just curious if anyone has/had one this and if it caused any complications at birth?
Thank you all for your suggestions. I will have to pick that up next time I am at Whole Foods. I never make icing for him, (and rarely for us) so I had no idea. And yes, I have already spoken to the mother who is throwing the party and she is going to make cookies without dairy in them, which I thought was super nice. I don't typically allow Noah to have any sugar, but as he is getting older I am beginning to feel like when it is a special occasion and all his...
Hi Everyone! DS is allergic to cow products and we have been invited to a Valentine's Day cookie decorating party. My family heirloom recipe has both butter and milk in it (very healthy, I know ). I really would like for him to be able to participate at the party but I can't seem to find a good recipe for dairy free icing. The ones I have found all have crisco in them and I really would like for him NOT to have that. I made some tofu icing for him for his birthday which...
