Onslow County, NC (Jacksonville, Richlands, etc.) - Page 34

post #661 of 700
Hi!
I just wanted to step in and say I'm new to the area. We're close to Lejeune, and I joined just in time to be too late for the recent activities. Maybe next time, I guess.

-Shannon: Wanted to say that my boys and I had a great time thursday. Your girls are so cute. It was nice to meet you and your family! =)
post #664 of 700
Sorry I didn't make it, Shannon. I had every intention of going but I wasn't feeling well when I got up.

How did the CD sharing go? Anyone have any good ideas/examples of cloth trainers? I can't find any good ones with snaps or velcro on the side for easy off when there's poop. I've tried Happy Heinys trainers but they are huge. I got some other brand but it looks just like a pocket diaper to me. Not sure what makes it a trainer instead.

Welcome, true2Him!

momof3boys, it was nice to meet you, too! And your boys were so sweet!

MW: We had a good time! I don't remember that anyone else had trainers, but I have some Poquito Pants. They are designed for EC, so they are trim fitting & hold one (small) pee. Let me know if you want to get together & check them out! I'd recommend looking at EC sources for training pants.

can you pull them up and down easily and do they have fasteners on the sides so you can take them off like a diaper if there is poo?

Yes and yes! Mine have snap sides (adjustable w/3 different rows), but they can also be made with velcro.
post #668 of 700
Shannon ~ I just googled Poquito Pants. They are no longer being made? That's what the website says. They sound like exactly what I'm looking for. I posted on the EC board for some recommendations. I came across one thread for Sassy something trainers. Have you heard of those/have any experience with them?

There are some Poquitos for sale here. And it appears there are more being made by other people from Robin's pattern that might not even be called Poquitos when sold. I do have the pattern, if you sew.
post #670 of 700
Thanks again, Shannon. I do not sew anymore. Nowhere to put a sewing machine, otherwise I'd be all over getting the pattern. They are rather expensive. If I hadn't just spent almost $300 on yarn, I'd buy a few right now.

These Sassy ones I mentioned are only about $7-8 depending on what kind of covering you want.

Hi Everyone - I just moved to Jacksonville 2 weeks ago so I'm not yet familiar with the area much, but this was posted on the ICAN yahoo group yesterday. I thought I would pass it on just in case there is someone here who can help or knows of someone. If you do, please contact me via PM:

"EMERGENCY Jacksonville, North Carolina help needed

Anyone with info or help, a NC woman transported after a successful UBA2C
and the details I am getting say that she was committed to a mental hospital
after her transport. Both her and baby were fine, they even commented how
healthy and pink baby was. I'm sure there are lots of details that will
come out, and of course I don't have all the facts but right now we need to
know if there are any "birth friendly" advocates, lawyers or mental health
experts that could help this woman."

Thank you!

~Kim

Oh gosh! I don't know anyone, Kim, but I've forwarded this to someone who might.

BTW-Welcome to Jacksonville!

I don't know anyone, either.

I am planning on moving to the Jacksonville area this coming summer, after finally marrying my Marine. Will keep an eye on this thread as time gets closer!

Hello All,

Just moved here....in the process still actually of moving between Jacksonville and Richlands. I'm a plant loving mother of 2 that get to start school next Wednesday...very exciting for both.

Hubby is a Corpsman and I'm studying to be a Middle School Science Teacher. I've found the farmer's market and a beach. I'm looking to hook up with other Moms in the area. I'd like to here about CSA's, favorite thrift shops, gymnastics, dance, chickenpox parties, 4-H, cub/girl scouts, sports....we're not going to do everything, just researching our options. Oh and gardening in zone 8 (previously zone 5).

We're trying to walk a sustainable path...trying. SS is starting 2nd and SD is starting Kindergarten.

Welcome, catgoat! I thought this thread was dead! There are at least several of us still around, though. I also live between Jax & Richlands, with a Richlands address, over near the airport.

My girls go to CCDance in Richlands. We've got new teachers this year so I can't say if I'd recommend them or not yet, but the studio is relaxed with an emphasis on learning, not competition, and the class sizes are often small.
post #679 of 700
Welcome Catgoat! My favorite thrift store in the area is the one on Camp Lejeune.
post #680 of 700
Thank you for the info for the dancing and thrift shop. I have been to the base thrift shop. I liked it, but I still want to try the ones in Richlands. Are there consignment shops here?
