well, most likely. most bottled water we've "tested" still had crap in it. there have only been a couple bottled waters that didn't i believe but i'd have to ask matt to confirm that.

I for one am deeply sorry if I offended anyone to the extent that she felt she had to leave the group. All are welcome here, IMO...we're a bunch of moms who had babies around the same time (or were supposed to) and that's our common thread. We come from totally different walks of life, are all different ages, and bring different experiences. I'm so sorry that some of you don't feel welcome here, and I wish there was something I could say to fix that. You WILL be missed, whether you think you "fit in" or not. We're all societal misfits...otherwise we wouldn't be on MDC.

well put Sarah....I kinda like being thought of as a misfit

I don't think that was ever anyone's intentions.

Come on ladies, can't we all just get along!?

pretty please :

All of you who are in a musical drought should check out Pandora.com. It's an awesome site...the music genome project. You put in your favorite artist, or favorite song, and it comes back with a list of comparable artists and songs, many very obscure. It's really cool.

That's great Amy. I can wait. I just took her to the dr. today and she's 16 lbs 5 oz, so not exactly too heavy yet. Length is another story, but she seems to have slowed down in that department too.

If drugs will work, that would be ok with me. Where did you get Domperidone? The reglan helped me but I don't really want to go back on it now that I'm back at work. That ups things a whole 'nother stress level.

As for your milk supply, you can't necessarily go by Evie's reaction, that could be anything - could be low supply but could also be from teething, from her being sick, from a taste change based on something you ate or your menstrual cycle (if you have it - and btw some women have a temporary drop in milk production when they ovulate &/or get their period) or a million other things. And pumping too - sometimes the amount a mom can get pumping goes down, but the baby can still get plenty. Is she getting any solids or supplements of any kind? If not, you can tell if she's getting enough by her wet/dirty dipes and weight gain - if those are adequate then there's no problem. (If she's getting other food then it's harder to tell). Anyway if you really think your supply is lower, you can pump more, but the best thing is really to nurse more - whenever you can. Frequency of feedings has more of an impact on milk production than duration of feedings, so even if she only stays on for a couple of minutes each time, getting her to nurse as often as possible will help. And night nursings also impact production more, so sleeping with her (if you're not already) might encourage her to nurse more at night. Otherwise as someone mentioned, galactogogues like Domperidone (or natural ones like nursing teas, fenugreek, oats/oatmeal) might help. Good luck, I hope it turns out to be nothing or just temporary!
Well, I took 3 fenugreek last night before bed and she nursed probably 3 times last night. Then this am Caleb sounded croupy so I took the day off. I took 3 more Fenugreek this am and when we went to the dr, I made a "just in case" bottle. Well, I ended up not needing it. Hurray!

Since I've been back at work, I've noticed a slight decline in the supply or so it seems. She is eating solids and has always gotten a supplement. I noticed that the amount of formula just seemed to be increasing, so I wanted to try to up my production again. I'm hoping that the fenugreek will work. So far, so good.

Well, she's fussing and needs to go to bed. I'll try to get on later, but I'm beat!

OK, Mamas, I'm opening this back up.

First of all, if you have any questions or concerns, please, please, please for pity's sake send them via PM rather than airing them on the thread. Becayse doing that would violate the UA and I don't want to have to shut the thread again, 'kay?

Second, thanks for the love in the middle of the thread. That made my night and I can't begin to tell you how it made me smile while reading through 32 pages!

Third, a few gentle reminders:
DO NOT conduct business in the forums. Trades, swaps, sales, etc need to take place in the Trading Post or via PM. No exceptions. I hate to be such a harda** about this, but the rules are there for a reason and need to be applied universally.

MDC does not host goodbye threads, because they just lead to speculation and hurt feelings.

Finally, please remember that MDC wishes to be a place that welcomes everyone. Even a thread such as this, where you all know one another and love one another and have a relationship with one another, needs to be a space that is welcoming to new members. When you're posting, please keep the User Agreement in mind:
Quote:

Our discussions concern the real world of mothering and are first and foremost, for support, information, and community. Mothering invites you to read and participate in the discussions. In doing so we ask that you agree to respect and uphold the integrity of this community.

If I removed a post of yours, I'll do my very best to let you know, but it might not be til tomorrow. I'm fighting off the remains of a nasty cold : and really wanted to be offline an hour ago.

Wow, obviously I missed some shtuff...can I get some PM action to explain? Somebody left? Get at me, as the kids all say.

A polite request: Can we all multi-quote as much as possible? I'm going to try to do this too. It just makes things easier to follow. If anyone wants to boost post count, there are some threads just for that in TAO. Otherwise what do people do to make following easier? Get the once a day digest in email? I'm wicked lost!

And for personal convos where people are both on at the same time and just doing back n' forth, maybe PM or a messenger service would work well? It sure is faster. I love keeping up with everyone, but it's easy to get bogged down in side convos. Obviously, I don't make rules, and I'm not the boss of you (although I could use a boss of me). Just askin'.

I think AM brought up a good point about making sure we welcome new members to the thread, and I realized that the intro post with everyone's names and dates and stuff might make it look like if you aren't on that list, you can't join the thread. Maybe we can amend that first post to mention that all June mamas are welcome, and we'll add your stats if you want?

Oh, and anyone seen Mearaina lately? Hope everything's OK.

Um, in babies... we had a super clingy day yesterday. She has discovered whining. Not crying, not fussing, but full on whining. I really need to try a teething necklace. The Camilia seems to work well though. She's also all into light switches now. She shuts off the light at bedtime. It's pretty cute!

Here they are all decked out and ready for a magical dance!
