Avent's whole friggin' line of stuff (including my breastpump) has BPA. So now I have maybe 1 month of pumping left and I have to buy a new pump. Some stores were taking back the pumps without receipt but I called and they all told me no.
DO NOT BUY AVENT PRODUCTS!!! Even if BPA is toxic, that company will still be making BPA products for babies. Gross, huh?

I think that avent has an adapter so that you can pump into regular bottles? maybe you can find one and keep using your pump just different bottles or pump into one bottle that fits and poor it into a safe bottle? just some thoughts

Hi DDC,
Sorry I haven't been participating. My life has been weird lately. Or maybe it's just me who's been weird. I've been all over the place emotionally. Happy and social one minute, sad and shy the next. Ion's been the same as me and I don't know who's giving it to who. Kam and I have been married 5 years now! I feel pretty good about that, although I still don't feel very 'connected' to him.

Oh that's wonderful! I do worry about other babies having my milk because I eat a TON of wheat and gluten. And garlic. All the garlic you sent was gone in 3 days.

I just started AF today. My cycles have been 36 days! What is that about? I start feeling full and about to erupt on day 27. It probably explains the way I'm feeling but 2 weeks of hormonal crazies is just too much. I wonder if I should take vitex or maca or something?

Marriage sure is something else, isn't it?

We'll celebrate five years, too, this year! I'm actually thinking of having a party this year since our anniversary is on Halloween. I don't think I'll go as a pregnant bride this year though! Marriage is something else. Last night, amid the chaos, Ed said, "I wish it was just us". We miss each other.

Hope you're feeling better, hanno. Funny, I kept feeling my last cycle, but it didn't come, didn't come. Then I got together with one of my girlfriends and that day it came. Can't help but see a connection to female hormones - guess I need to get out more.

Well, the pump has BPA as well. I've put a milk storage on the pump and used that today, but the bag was torn so this will be a short-lived alternative. The Medela is BPA free and only 30$ in the US (65$ here in Canada) so I think I'll just spend the 30$ to be sure that my milk won't be contaminated.

Hi Hanno!!! I missed you :
Happy 5 years!! I'm not really married (hehe), so none of that here. I haven't been feeling very connected either (we've been together 8yrs) but I think it'll come back eventually.

halloween anniversary--i love it! i think i remember asking you to see photos of your wedding. ours is sept 13 (my nana's bday...she turned 70 on our wedding day) so funny---our kids have almost the same bdays and our anniversaries are a month apart.
i really crave females but i think it's b/c my marriage is lacking a lot.

so the medela is ok?? and it is similar to the isis??
post #69 of 269
doudat- I'd be totally willing to do a little shipping arrangement for you.

and if anyone wants my medela swing (single electric), let me know. I've been using the manual a lot because it's easier to use while following Ion around the house and I have the PISA and it's not like I have 4 boobs to pump.

Two peas in a pod, krismarie! You'll have to come visit to see the photos, I don't have any digital. It was pretty fun. Although since I put the whole thing together, I mostly remember all the little details I missed. That's what being in the catering biz will do.

oh yes...pre-digital days. we just got a digital about a year and a half ago...i forget that there are so many pictures that are hard to share.

speaking of photos--it will be easiest for me to mail pictures of our visit...pm me your address.

I have no idea if it's similar to the Isis, but it is BPA free (hurray for Medela!!)
I'll let you know how similar it is to the Isis once I receive it.

Thanks But I found a place that ships to Canada, so it's already bought

I don't have AF yet, but I hear you on craving females... Which is the only reason I'm happy to be back at work, lots of women there. Which is nice, cause they understand, IYKWIM.

hey everyone...
I'm so tired and stressed out, this buying a house sucks! I don't think we're going to get the financingonly because I just came off mat leave. Oh well, it's not far off in our future anyway.

teeth-Arlo has 6, 3 on top and 3 on the bottom. He still isn't walking, but is climbing on everything and is really starting to talk and communicate. It's really cute.
I am in the process of nightweaning (shhhh, don't tell the rest of the commune!) I can't take being up every 2 hours anymore. Now he's going 3-4 hours, which is much better.

Trent and I also celebrated 5 years this year! Although we aren't officially married

hanno, I hope your feeling better. I've been feeling a bit weird too, but I was weaning of my meds, and now I've decided maybe that was a bad idea. And I do feel like af is just around the corner, but still hasn't made an appearance. I got my period six months pp after Finn, so I don't know what's going on here!

And kris, maybe you and your dh need a date? I know T and I do. It's so hard to connect when the kids take everything out of you, yk? Some days I think we barely even notice each other. Plus, we hardly have any sex, so that connection is also missing. But I just can't make myself do it, yk?

doudat, are you guys campers??:

Hi ladies!

Tor started walking this week!! A week after his 1st birthday! I'm so proud.

He also has gotten one of his pre-molars in and is working on the other one. This makes 10 teeth-wow!

This is us, too. Although here I am, on the computer and eating cupcakes, wishing he wasn't snoring already.

you're right...we don't ever get a chance to connect. i've had "find a babysitter" on my to-do list since kaylo was born.

good luck with night-weaning. you'll feel so much better with a good night of sleep every night!

Oh no!!! Sucks for the house, but like you said, you'll get one eventually
I just love that icon and use it whenever I can!!!

Nightweaning: how does that work?? I'm, hum, curious

I read somewhere that you needed to stay on meds for ppd a year after the symptoms disappeared... So for me, I'm thinking I'll stay on them for another year, just in case.

Camping: used to be, before kids :
I just love that smilie and use it whenever I can!! :::
