There are a couple of moms here with very sick mito children. I will alert them to your thread so maybe they can give you some insight. I wish you peace, no matter what.
I cried and cried and cried when ds1 started solids. It was awful for me. Dh wanted to start ds2 on solids (he's 6 mos. old), so I let him try, and he's just not ready. I'm secretly celebrating. : LOL. For me, it was just another small step away from babyhood, which is so precious.

Heya Feebs!! : I was so hoping you'd chime in.

I also wanted to quell the tone of mercury/autism/developmental boogeyman of the week hysteria that the...

Bless you for being the voice of reason here. My God. We're...
I'll play. Susan Senator is an autism mom and the author of a great book, Making Peace With Autism. She has a great attitude and respect for the autistic point of view. Her blog is a good read sometimes (she doesn't always talk about autism), and her book is simply fantastic. Cammie McGovern is another autism mom/author whom I enjoy reading. And finally, a nice little piece I like entitled, Autistics Need Acceptance, Not Cure.

And people are still saying what she did was okee dokee, and she has since posted that she's totally okay with what she did and that it was not theft. Hence my response.
