You all are the best, you know that?
What? I can't believe that. One of my dearest friends on my ddc for ds1 lost her second baby (it was the hospital's fault) - I couldn't imagine telling her not to talk about it!! WTF?! I hope nobody here feels that way - seriously. I know I wanted to talk about my mc quite a lot, nevermind actually losing a child! IMO, please feel free to discuss anything that helps you process...if it is not accepted here, go over to the YG.

Please do tell us everything about her. I learned about Ema few days after Sebastian (DS1) was born, because Ema died the day before he was born and I remember reading your post and how hard I was crying. My heart was breaking for you. My baby was just born and you just lots yuors and I just could not imagine what it must have been like for you. Somehow I really wanted to "know" her more. So please fell free to talk about your little girl.

Kim, I agree with everyone else, talk away. We're here to listen. I, too, would love to hear all about Emma.

I have 10 names

I'm doing better now and she is too. She so tired as she doesn't sleep much when we go shopping. She's too curious!!! She's sleeping for now. I hope she gets a good rest.

Are you sure? I asked my DH to check -- he uses a separate machine and was able to view messages, though he couldn't see email addresses. I emailed Cori to ask her to change the settings (I never even considered that it might not be closed!) so perhaps she did that before you checked?

:guh I'm glad to hear she seems OK.

Apologies for the YG settings issue - I had no idea the messages were open to non-members.

No, I haven't showered three times today.
I am about to lose it over here.
Some days just bite, and keep on biting. Can I go to bed yet?

Oh, I'm sorry! Your pediatrician is misinformed. The study he is talking about showing an increase in allergy was in a grand total of 16 children. That is NOT enough of a sample to draw a conclusion, and it goes against all the other studies available to us that show it is better to wait. I also do not believe that study was in exclusively breastfed children, either. That can make a significant impact.

Most allergy experts believe that babies who do not want to eat until later in the first year (like 9-12 months or sometimes longer) have a built in allergy protection that makes them want only breastmilk. Any family with a history of allergies should wait to start solids. I am so sorry that he gave you the information from that single study and ignored the rest of the evidence. Maybe you could ask him what his source of information is? I am positive it was this study that came out last year, I think? It caused quite a stir, and dontcha know the baby food companies were happy.



Actually......thanks for the info. I should have questioned him more about the validity of the study, but there was so much going on at the appointment. I will definetly will do so next time. I'm glad you were able to give me more info.

Well, if you are EST, then you can go to bed as it's almost 7pm here. But if you are on the west coast then you still need to take time to eat.
