We recently moved across the country and are staying with my mother-in-law, who just happens to also be a police officer. She has major issues with germs and with people since she deals witha lot of people on the job. She washes her hands incessantly, wears gloves for everything, and says my husband should take a hot shower when he comes home from his security job so he doesn't "give the baby anything." My baby has never had vaxes. She also has never had so...
I am on Depo now and after dealing with depression and reading horror stories, I'm finished with hormonal contraceptives. I want to try to use natural family planning but all of the information out there goes right over my head. Is there a site with easy to use information or a way to figure out which days I'm infertile without having to check temperatures, cervical fluid, etc.? I.e. for x many days after your period begins you are infertile and then on day x-z you...
I have to reply to this because I have done a lot of thinking about whether or not to allow my child to watch T.V. But then I realized that T.V. does have it's good points and bad points but it is our responsibility as parents to weed out the shows that are appropriate and the ones that are not. Growing up, Sesame Street and Mr. Rogers were the most educational things ever. To this day, I am a Mr. Rogers fan. His messages today are just as potent as they were 25...
I seriously hope this is the problem with me. We have talked about it and we both have said, "how important is sex to our marriage? Can we survive on companionship, parenting, and friendship alone for the time being?" and we basically agreed that we could. On a side note, we also live with my mother-in-law for the time being, so that puts a damper on things like you wouldn't believe too I guess. LOL Thanks for your understanding.

Maybe it has to do with having a baby by C-section... maybe I feel like I've been so physically violated or something that I...

And why would a spouse continue to do something when he knows it hurts his wife? Yeah, I've wondered this about my situation. It shows the total lack of respect he has for me I think. Honestly, because of that and a million-and-one other reasons, I am seriously considering divorce. Part of it...
Well thank you! She looks less dangerous than she is. Looks like we'll have to boost this thread up a little and get it going!!
Where is everyone? I'm so glad to have found Native mamas! I am Amy, Ojibwe, from Minnesota. I think I look hella Native. LOL!!! Anyway, I have a 5-month-old daughter, Amaya. We AP parent in style, but I was unable to BF and we can't afford to cloth diaper (it's the upfront cost!) Right now we live in Philadelphia with my husband's family... I don't think there are very many natives out this way, which I think will be hard if my daughter ever goes to...
I have a blank vax record. You know, technically, I could always 'fill in the blanks' myself.... "OOPS! how did that get there?" Thanks for all of the advice everyone! I go back this month. I'll let you know what happens. Technically, if they do deny me, isn't that illegal? Or is it considered a 'private program' where they can do whatever they want?
For those of you that make grilled cheese, etc. what kind of cheese do you use? Organic cheese or what? I'm so used to the grilled cheeses I grew up on with a slap of Kraft that I want to know what I should use for my daughter instead of it! Thanks!
