Plus chocolate has been made in one form or another all the way back to the ancient Mayan civilization - so in fact, one could term it an ancient ritual and a tradition, rather than a treat...
OMG chocolate - especially the darker kind and the European kinds (because they contain more cocoa solids) are high in antioxidants and iron! I love chocolate and as a previous poster said, consider it a good and healthy part of my diet! I'm not too keen on Hershey's but then again, I'm from England, where Hershey's would be considered "candy" and not real chocolate because of it's lower cocoa solids. I like (and this is from both countries): Endangered Species...
Well I have to say, for us, block feeding helped tremendously - I mean like, within a couple of days. So I think actually in our case, the higher lactose content of foremilk (nothing to do with the fat content of hindmilk etc) had to do with the green poos and spitting up. She still does spit up, but her poos are back to normal and the gas is now improved 1000% since I only feed her from one side at night. Now I don't have an overactive let down any more, or at least - not...
I blame it all on TV... He's a lot calmer this morning. He'd had a couple of beers last night so I scolded him for that this morning - and we talked about it on the phone (he at work). It's not as though I am going to remove my top in the middle of WalMart and do an Irish jig while simultaneously flapping my boobs to and fro... So he overreacted. And to everyone who thinks this is something he is simply going to have to get used to and isn't yet: you are so right. I...
I've mentioned this one before, but MIL asked me why on earth I couldn't give my DD Carnation evaporated milk diluted in a bottle so I could "get something done" - I do love her though, I really do!
Bella's gone from about a million times a day to 1-3 times a day. Today for example, we had two poos: one in a diaper - nice big one, that one - which I changed. Then, after our bath, I popped her on a towel and...bingo! Another fair sized one on the towel! Funny thing was, that the same way as a diaper, she then fussed for the towel to be "changed!"

We're known for our radical socialist beliefs up here, so I'm not sure my vote will carry any credibility with your DH! Only my DP's vote carries any weight with my DP. That is, until about 30 people come along with a different opinion and then he has to change his mind...lol

I really hope he gets out of the house a bit and talks to some of his friends and co-workers about this. Even his boss's wife told me (and him) at the work Christmas dinner last month to just not worry and get on with it right there! I think because of his own inexperience he...

I am going to need all the luck I can get on this one..lol. He went as far as to say that if he can't walk down the street with his...*ahem*...hanging out then I shouldn't be allowed to "expose" myself. You can imagine how I answered that one...
