Can you ladies give me some tips on how to better manage laundry? I do laundry for myself, my husband, and our baby.. We each have a TON of clothes, and all go thru them quickly leaving lots of laundry needing to be washed. I have 3 clothes bins- one for me, one for hubby, one for baby. I get so overwhelmed with it so what winds up happening is I wash it all, but then only half get hung up. I REALLY get stressed when the laundry isn't done, I like the house nice and...
I am sicker than a dog today. Everything I find online says... this medicine is safe.. no this medicine is not safe.. yes this medicine is safe. I don't get who I should listen to! It's a Sunday afternoon and I have NO doctor to consult, and Kellymom.com only says what ingredients are safe, basically. I don't know which meds contain those ingredients, and many have multiple ingredients anyways. Help???? I have a bad headcold.. chest congestion, coughing, aches....
Thanks bathrobegoddess (sorry didnt realize it was misplaced) Ladies, I am soooo sick today!!! I got kind of better, then over night I guess I got all stopped up, and now today even though I cleared my nose with the neti pot and steam, my mucous is yellowish. And when I cough I'm hacking up crap. And I ache. I'm worried about taking any medicine, but can you tell me ladies which meds are safe to take while BFing ? What is a safe dose of vit c to take if I am...
Etsy didn't have anything under 40, unfortunately. I need to find something in the 20-30 range......
Hi, I am trying to find an affordable ringsling for my 4mo DD. She's about 18lbs so is hard to tote around all the time! We've had a jellybean pouch since she was born but now its too small. I love maya wraps, so I know I want a ring sling. But I cannot spend the 50-60 most go for. Can anyone recommend a place to buy a cheap ringsling, onsale Maya wraps, or something? If not Maya brand, maybe recommend a similar ringsling. I want one that is made like a maya, I am in...
I've had a cold for the last 3 days.. stuffy head, sore throat, general yuckies. I've been treating it with garlic/500mg vit C/neti pot, and am much better than I was and feel like it's improving. My DD is 4mo (unvaxed) and healthy, should I do anything special for her at this point, or should the antibodies in my breastmilk be good? I am her main caregiver of course but I've been avoiding being too kissy kissy, and I handwash. But we do co-sleep and nurse...
Can you eat too much garlic? I will go buy some raw garlic later, Im sure I can swallow a piece whole, I've never had trouble swallowing big pills, so.. And, is honey (raw) safe when breastfeeding? (won't cause an allergy in DD?) Guess Im off to the store for honey, tea, lemon and garlic. Off to see what kellymom says is a safe amount of Vit C
I have a bad, bad headcold/something. It started with a heavy chest, progressed to a sore throat. Now I have sinus drainage, and a scratchy horrible feeling in the back of my throat. I don't want it to progress into serioous congestion.... I breastfeed so I don't feel comfortable taking a whole lot of medicines. I was wondering what IS safe to take. Or if I can just do it naturally? So far I used a neti-pot, some nasal saline, and cepacol drops... Would yall...
Hi, I just came across some information that made me go "huh". See below. Before I got pregnant I was diagnosed with ITP - Low blood platelets, of unknown cause. Not too bad, they range from 60-80,000 so its not extremely low. It's also thought I may be a carrier of hemophelia, though they have not confirmed this. But mostly hemophelia effects boys (easy bleeding, etc) so when I didn't know if my baby was a boy or girl, I had to see a specialist to determine what we...

(the 59-79% statement as well as the CA pertussis one)
