I had to comment too. Bleah.

I did appreciate the encouragement...
After reading a few discussions here, I am curious as to the ingredients of formula. I'd like to be informed. Does anyone have a good link?
As a breastfeeding mother of twins, I can verify that no one expects twins to be breastfed, not even medical professionals or other moms of twins. Its always assumed they are formula fed, period.

I started out breastfeeding. I did it for 10 days. I actually STARTED for selfish reasons, I knew it would help me lose weight and save our family money, and sure it was good for the baby too (Does that make me an awful mom? I mean, those reasons got me to do what...

OT but is it just me or are the movies in theaters WAY TOO LOUD these days? The last movie DH and I went to see was the last Lord of the Rings movie and the battle scenes were so loud I almost cried! : Ok, that's an exaggeration but criminy, I seriously don't go to the movies anymore because our theater here plays them so friggin loudly that I literally can't stand it. Are they getting louder or am I just getting to be an old poop?

I'm on another board for twin moms. Its very, very mainstream, which in and of itself doesn't bother me most times. I'm not extremely crunchy. I BF, CD, and co-sleep to some extent but that's not the point. Anyway..... One woman posted a copy of a letter that a mom in her IRL Mom's group posted on their web site and said that it "made her blood boil". The other Mom's letter was a tad on the hostile side in which she vented about formula companies (comparing them to...
