Don't people always bring presents to a kids birthday party? I can't imagine not bringing a gift just because it was a few months later. My son's birthday is in April and there was one year that we didn't do the kid party until mid June. Everyone still brought presents OP I think you are wise to consider the fact that people will most likely bring gifts unless you specify not too. IME interwebz rules tend not to apply so much in the real world. It is tacky to specify...
We have to pay for water and sewage for the first time in years. We are looking for tips on how to keep it as low as possible. I know you all have great advice, right??

I am so sorry that you are going through this. Do you have ANY other options? There has to be a better way. It doesn't sound like your children will be safe if you live with your X.

Being poor is much better than living with an abuser. Again, I am so so sorry that this is happening to...

Can you elaborate?? I am in agreement with a more localized code. ETA I didn't see your most...

A month ago I called them because my Symphony tubing broke and I only had one working side and I couldn't find a store that sold just the tubing without the rest of the pump kit. Not only did they send it to me free, they overnight shipped it! Granted, that's not "passing...

As I said in my post, they serve an important purpose. Obviously there are times when they are essential, and having a preterm baby would be one of them. My only point was that Medela's marketing affects a much wider audience than the moms who use their...
