Hittin' the half year mark with the July Mamas - Page 9

post #161 of 1217
: I have already 3 addys for the exchange. Keep them coming!


I forgot to say that for burns, Aloe Vera, either in cream, concentrate from the plant are great for burns.

I burned my 2 fingers and my thumb taking the cover off a hot Corningware of cooked rice. Ouch!

The pharmacy also sells a type of product called Second skin. You put it directly on the burn. It keeps the burn moist, cool too and has good stuff in it to help heal.

My burn pic

This was taken shortly after it happened. The blisters actually got a little bigger. There were small ones between my fingers, too. Ouch.

My girls does the same thing with my mom. She gives both of them a stran(sp) of yarn and they act like kittens.

Ugh... after 20 mos the baby seemed to do ok? I occasionally try some dairy and usually he's fussy after, but occasionally not. He goes through fussy periods *anyway* so I'm never sure if it's a coincidence. I hope he doesn't need to be dairy-free as an older kid. We did that for 7 years with my oldest and it is a huge pita!
She weaned at 21mths so afterwards, i didn't have to worry about me eating dairy. I did give her rice milk/cheese and non dairy product until after we got both older dds tested for allergies this past summer. They came out without any. So we introduce dairy to them slowly.

DON'T burst the blisters!!! They are made to protect the skin underneath it. They are a pita, i know but they are important.

Tanya~ Did you go see the dr??

Maybe you should, just to make sure they are not more than second degree burns. If they are worse than that , i think you need special care for your burn.

I did, but that was five years ago. I didn't mean to steal Kimya's thunder. She had asked about burn care, and I just shared my story, and thought I'd gross everyone out with my pic. I know there was a flurry of posts this morning though!

Kimya...do you want to share a pic of your burn?

I now remember she was the one who got a burn. Oh boy , i need to not do two things at once while reading this thread.

I used to be much better at multi-tasking before I had kids. Now I'm a firefighter. All I do all day long is put out fires. Reminds me of my job pre-motherhood, only with unreasonable people. Who are short. And always hungry.

BTW, I forgot earlier to thank everyone for asking about dd1. I crawled in bed with her twice last night before I went to sleep and she was fine each time. She slept all night, too. Her wound stopped oozing overnight. It's very small and at her hairline, so scarring shouldn't be too bad.

That's great that your dd is doing better.
post #170 of 1217
Vent ahead:

I hate our furnace, outside noise, etc... They keep waking up dd3. grrrrrr

She has a white noise machine and it's on loud but she still hears it and wake up. Then she looses her soother and then starts crying and then i have to go upstairs and give it back to her. Repeat this every hr or 2 at night and about 30min-1hr during her naps.

grrrrrrr

Tanya, OMG that burn pic made me cower and hurriedly click it away. I bet that was reallly painful.

My goodness, burns, car accidents, sick kiddos, missing kids! ... :guh to you all! Burn care: I 2nd,3rd, or whatever the advice for lanolin and vitamin E.

More solid food questions. I know that on the main part of LWAB, some mamas have been told not to introduce meat until after a year ... why is that? Isn't meat a fairly non-allergenic food (esp, if it is organic). Just wondering your thoughts. I was thinking about making this one of Seth's first foods.

Kim, sorry to hear that you are having such a tough time right now. Emma's birthday must be difficult to see come and go each year. If you need to talk, we're here for you.

JJoy, How horrible about the counterfeit check. Definitely go in to the bank to talk with them personally ... they will be much more lenient when you are a face and know that you are trying to get things sorted out.

Jess Juice, breakfast for me can be either toast with PB & J, or an apple with peanut butter, or homemade granola (I like it plain or with rice milk), hard boiled eggs ... they can cook while you are getting ready and you can eat them in the car, or even leftovers from dinner the night before (no one ever said you had to stick with classic breakfast foods for the morning meal!). I absolutely loathe oatmeal, so I'm offering some other good foods that are quick.

Sandrine, I PMed you about the card exchange ... great idea btw.

Witt, welcome back ... what a beautiful family you have.

Ok, I have more to catch up on, but DS is getting to squirmy to type more.
post #173 of 1217
Oh no no no, links to kiddies, yes please, to pictures of you lovely lot, to dhs and dws and even ILs but burns, no thank you! Glad it all healed in the end Tanya, and hope Kimya some of the advice you got here worked...

oh, BTW, I couldn't get the link to the yahoo group to work...

talking of things not working...elsane, just assume you'll get your Bob this time next year and you may be in for a pleasant surprise. I am working on it!

Sandrine, bless you for thinking up the one person-one-card system. Now that I can handle!

JessicaJuice - you have my commiseration, bucketloads of it, and as usual no practical advice. I can't imagine a no-cheese world too well, either. It begs for a haiku, I think.

hugs to Kim at this time...

Try this:

Find the button that says "Join This Group" and follow the directions to join the group. If you still have trouble, PM Miss Juice, our very dear mod :

An Ode to Cheese Haiku. I can feel it coming on. Must be that grilled cheese for lunch today. :

Sandrine, I kwym about the white noise. Our heat/air unit actually makes the white noise. So much easier to get to sleep and stay asleep with it on.
post #175 of 1217
We are now up to 7ppl for the card exchange.

Talking about grilled cheese, I don't have a craving for that since i stopped eating dairy for dd2. I think that's one of the only thing i don't eat since now i can eat dairy. I do try to eat cheese, ice cream and drink milk.

That's great to hear. It sounds like you've been through the wringer lately with stuff like this! :guh

Am I the only one who was excited and ready to send cards to all who signed up? (I was assuming that maybe 20 or so would sign up.)

Seriously, I love sending holiday cards and ours are fun fun fun! You all want one, trust me. Is there an option for people who would send to the whole group without expecting one from everyone in return? Or does that make it too annoying/guilt-inducing for those who only send one?

JJoy, keep us updated, but : to all the comments above. It will work out, it will just be annoying and there will be a lot of paperwork. :guh

Kim, :guh

JJuice, re: non-dairy... I eliminated dairy too since it seems to cause excessive spittiness, gas and sometimes vomiting. Blech.

I use Rice Dream for cereal and cooking. It works really well and I don't notice a difference. I wouldn't drink a glass of it with cookies or anything, but it's fine. Much better cold.

I hear you on cheese. Sometimes I snitch a small bit, which translates into 2-3 spit ups, generally on something that has to be dry cleaned : Take that mom!

Re: breakfast. We do a lot of oatmeal around here too with raisins, dates, walnuts, whatever. I also prep breakfasts in advance. On the weekends I usually make a double batch of pancakes and stick them in the fridge. They are great snacks and breakfast. On Wed I do a big tray of eggs in the oven which lasts us until the weekend.

Pancakes
1.5 c. whole wheat flour (I like stone ground)
3 tsp. baking powder
3 tbs. sugar

2 eggs
1.5 c. rice milk
2 tsp vanilla
3 tbs. melted butter

Combine dry and wet ingredients separately. Be especially careful to thoroughly mix the baking powder through the dry ingredients.

Add dry to wet bit by bit, mixing as you go. Once everything is combined I usually add 2-3 mashed bananas to the batter... mmm. You can really do anything though.

Heat your pan - works best if greased first and then the grease is wiped off. Cook each until bubbles appear in the top at low-medium heat.



Eggs
24 eggs
2 c. rice milk
1/2 c. butter
2 tsp salt

Melt butter in a 9x12 glass baking dish. Combine eggs, milk and salt, dump into pan. Cook in oven at 350 for 10 min, stir, cook an additional 10-15 min until eggs are set.

Very tasty with toast. But you can also keep this in the fridge and just cut a portion for on the go.

I have a new set of questions for December if anyone is interested!

1. When did you first find MDC? How long did you lurk before joining?
2. What drew you to MDC? (area(s) of interest)
3. What kept you here?
4. What new things have you picked up from being here that you perhaps never considered/ knew about/ thought you'd subscribe to?

JJuice, some quick, no-dairy breakfasts: oatmeal, eggs, smoothies, egg burritos (wrap eggs scrambled with green onions and mixed peppers -- these can be chopped ahead of time and kept in the fridge -- in a whole wheat tortilla and go) soup (seriously, it's a great winter breakfast.)

2. What drew you to MDC? (area(s) of interest) At first it was all the parenting stuff that drew me. Now it's the ppl and those who are going thru the same things as me with their kids.
3. What kept you here?The friendship i made from dif threads and groups
4. What new things have you picked up from being here that you perhaps never considered/ knew about/ thought you'd subscribe to?I probably would't have been so adamant of bf if others didn't had the same prob as me when i was pg of dd2. I learned that it does hurt to nurse at first. I also didn't know much about allergies and this board help me be dairy-free with the support and knowledge. the no vax/delay vax too
