Joanie, caffine.

Yeah I never pumped and dumped.  Ever.  I operated on the theory that if I could physically go get my child without the risk of dropping them or falling over, they would be fine.  And nobody is retarded so I must have done a good job huh?  :lol  With my first two I also smoked while breastfeeding.  And they are fine also.  Kids are durable.  BUT, I know everybody has their opinions.  Not that I would now condone smoking while breastfeeding, FYI, I was a young mom, remember.  I figured I would just state the scientific facts and leave my opinion out of it. 

 

I have no blinky cursor thing and its a mystery where I am typing.

With my first I just didn't drink, period. It stressed me out too much (she never went longer than an hour between feedings even when she was a toddler). And I didn't want her to get any alcohol. Now I laugh at myself, and drink what I want, and do not worry about nursing. When O was little I would try not to nurse him while buzzed, but if I did I didn't stress. And since having O I have drank enough to get spinny only twice. So I figure he's OK. smile.gif

Jaimee,  I'm feeling better today, but not 100%, thanks for asking.  Your family doesn't like cauliflower kraut, but you'll eat kohlrabi kraut?  How it is?

 

Nicole,  Glad you had fun, sorry you're feeling like crap.  I can't imagine staying awake until 4:00am with a 3 week old baby...!!!

 

I've always drank a bit while nursing.  I rarely get trashed and so far it's been fine.  I've never pumped and dumped.

 

I'm off to take a nap and then go to the carnival.  I missed all the fun yesterday!

Abra, my family isn't a big fan of cauliflower (I am, but no one else really) and I don't think that it was fermented long enough either.  I should try again now that I've got the process down a bit more.  The kohlrabi kraut is something new... never tried it before.  But yesterday we cleaned out a bunch of the garden beds and needed to harvest 4 huge kohlrabis (a 5th, unusable kohlrabi weighed in at 17.5 lbs!).  I figured we would never eat them before they went bad, so I looked up ways to preserve them and kraut came up and I gave it a try!  I'll let you all know how it tastes in about 3 weeks! 

 

We also harvested about 10 gallons of green tomatoes.  I've got a recipe for salsa verde using green tomatoes and I also plan to pickle a bunch.  Anything else I should try to do with them?  And we've got another giant box of ripe tomatoes... more salsa, I guess.  I'd like to try some different recipes, though.  Anyone got a favorite salsa recipe that is safe for BWB canning?

 

Sara and Ash, thanks for the education on alcohol in breastmilk.  I've only ever had 1-2 drinks at a time while nursing so it's never been an issue.  Now that Avery only nurses 3x a times a day, I guess I could get drunk after he goes to bed and be fine feeding him in the morning.  Good to know!  drink.gif

We're going to get drunk snaps from Jaimee in no time. ;-)

I'm glad my drinking wasn't for nothing. Looks like everyone got a bit of education from it. smile.gif

Nap time is over. I think I'm going to survive and can unhook the life support. wink1.gif

My sister is taking Conner to a birthday party here in a bit. I'll use that time to shower. It's the only thing I haven't checked off of my hangover list. LOL

I'm glad you're having fun making your stamp, Sara.

I'm anxiously waiting for drunken Snaps from Jaimee..

 

Jaimee.  I often add carrots and cauliflower to my cabbage kraut.  It basically just all tastes the same, but it adds interest.  Everyone around here eats it.

post #1190 of 2728

Oh, and Sara, I like the floor, I bet it will look really cool with the stamps.

post #1191 of 2728
I loved cauliflower in the kraut I used to make. Mmm.

I hope DH grills the burgers soon. I'm hungry and trying to avoid snacking.
post #1192 of 2728
All this talk about drinking, I think I'm going to have to drink something. Or make something. Brownies. That's like alcohol, right?
post #1193 of 2728
I'd take brownies over alcohol any day.
post #1194 of 2728
I don't really get hangovers very often but I do greatly suffer from staying up so late. As soon as my kids go to bed tonight, I'm taking a sleeping pill and passing out. DH informed me of a lot of drama I didn't see happen last night. Two people got in a fight and the wife of one of them ended up giving the other guy a black eye. Someone peed on our basement floor thinking he was in the bathroom. So many other things too. Weirdest night ever. I'm thinking the everclear was a bad idea.

I'm on it!!!   Just kidding... I'm such a light weight at this point that one beer does me in and I feel like crap.  I've got some work to do.

Is everclear ever really a good idea?  :lol 

post #1196 of 2728
Everclear and Capri Sun used to be my drink of choice when I was a broke college student just wanting to get drunk, LOL.

I want some brownies. Yummm.

I hate when there's drama, Mal. I'm glad you were oblivious to it though so it didn't ruin your night.
post #1197 of 2728
Mal, that sounds like a party.

Jaimee, I think every should drink more.

I'm a fan of breastfeeding and drinking. My kids are ok. Sort of.

Sara, if you think brownies = alcohol you're doing it wrong.

I took the big girls to see a dollar movie and to goodwill while J went to see AH for a few hours. It was nice. Now I'm neglecting them/dinner/the house while they jump on the trampoline. I'm also hearing a lot of fox sounds. The kids get a huge kick out of making J do it.
post #1198 of 2728
Mal, that sounds like my family gatherings.

Joanie and Nicole, I have to paint a floor tonight (does that sound dirty to anyone else?) but I'll make brownies for breakfast if y'all come over.

Amanda, maybe you're doing brownies wrong.

My sister just left with her husband for a friend's wedding and they're going to be away from their 6-wk-old for approx. 11 hours while he is syringe-fed breastmilk by the babysitter because he still won't take a bottle. Anyone ever switch from breast to sippy without a bottle anywhere in there? My sister is freaking out a bit since she goes back to work soon and we have no idea how syringe-feeding could work long-term. Eeek. FX that he takes a bottle tonight out of pure necessity!

It was a fall drink. Hot apple cider mixed with everclear. It was delicious but went down far too easy.

I was dealing with drama of my own, that's the only reason I missed the rest of it.
