Just wanted to give a heads up to other breastfeeding moms who's babes get any pumped milk. The Medela glass bottles have a defect and the ring with nipple does not properly twist onto the bottle causing milk to leak. I called Medela and they did confirm they had received other complaints and offered to replace the bottles. I asked them to send me the BPA-Free plastic ones...

Why is it disrespectful for a child to use the same name as an adult to refer to you?
Children should be treated as equals. I will not teach my child to call anyone Mrs. or Mr. anything. In fact I will encourage the opposite and if someone is offended, well than they can just be offended. My child's intellectual freedom is the priority. Not sparing some random persons ego. False senses of authority are a major problem in this country.

I wanna get in on this UP thread!! My husband and I are really excited...we are under agreement for a house in Ironwood. I'm so excited to see that there are plenty of mothering.com type mothers up there. Anyone in Ironwood? I'm really looking forward to living a more simple, somewhat stress free lifestyle. Chicago is the pits.

That seems like an odd request; I suppose I don't understand the significance to you. I'd think, though, that you'd have a hard time in most places...
