Talk about control issues! Jeez. God forbid there should be two of the same superheros at a little kid's birthday party

Yeah. With Dd, I went for 4 hours at one point where I "only" dilated a centimeter Also, she was quite obviously a "big baby" (came out 9, 1) and I can just imagine the scramble to start warning me that sometimes these big babies just don't want to be born vaginally
Washing with the BS should leave your hair just like washing with shampoo -- clean, not greasy. You don't have to go through a greasy period unless you also start going way longer than usual without washing. I don't know where this "greasy period" stuff came from ...
It's lying if you lie. If you tell your kids there's a man named Santa Claus, and he comes down the chimney of every child on Christmas Eve, and the gifts they're opening were made by his elves, and he's REAL ... you're lying.
There was some stuff on one of the original no-poo threads about white vinegar containing or creating acetic acid? I think. And that it was better for housecleaning than body care for that reason.

Anyone else getting responses from advertisers yet? I am, and they are concerned and/or pissed.
Thanks for the list of advertisers! I used 'em How many sane Mothering advertisers (who, it may be assumed, share Mothering's professed views to some point) will want to be associated with this kind of nutjob extremist manure? Especially since by refusing to remove it, MDC is telling its other advertisers it doesn't care whether their potential customers can trust the quality of ads here anymore? Effectively failing to deliver the target audience they...
