My new audio story website has queer families!
Linky-poo in my signature.
We LOVE "What Makes a Baby"...
I could go on and on about YA books, but will have to come back to do that.
Need to go switch the laundry to the dryer.
How wonderful that Erin and Cindy got to meet!
I so wish I'd been able to make it Bellingham.
Erin, do you bring the kids with you to your presentations?
Esmé is just about ready to come with me to my author talks, save for a couple of issues. I talk very frankly about my own highschool years when I go into highschools, and that involves subject matter that's not appropriate for her to hear. But she really would like to come with me on my trips, so I wonder about...
So glad to hear that Z is thriving!
When E was 4 months old, we moved from a small mountain town to Vancouver, where I didn't know another single soul who was a parent.
And, truthfully, friendships change when you have kids and your buddies don't. In those early months it's easy to think that things will stay the same, when you can meet at the coffee shop with baby snuggled quietly asleep in a wrap while you drink a latte and play Banangrams (might just be...
Thanks for your posts, Adina.
I agree, ommunication is key!
When it come down to it, these are two mamas who are far from home and family, and who could probably very much use a friend.
I hope the OP had a chance to sort things out, and that the two women were able to figure out a way to be supportive of each other.

Lact-Aid will ship, although it might be steep. It was pricey to get then to ship to Canada too, but so worth it.
We also found a few sets on Craigslist.
The medela was clunky and the suction
was testy. It wasn't discreet, either, and I
wanted to be comfortable nursing in public
without having to answer questions
I loved that I could nurse lying down with the
I love that the suction is consistent, and that it also maximizes and supports building...
Canada Post sends a reply to each letter to Santa, written by postal volunteers.
And you don't even need a stamp to mail the letter to Santa in the first place.
Only for Canadians, though.
Congratulations on the birth of your baby!
I don't have any preemie experience, but I do have lots of supplementing experience.
I did not like the Medlea SNS at all.
After trying several ways of supplementing, I ended up using the Lact-Aid supplementer..
There is a bit of a learning curve to get the hang of it, but there are lots of videos on youtube, and it truly is worth the initial effort in order to have the most supportive nursing relationship for the the length of ...
