I hear ya ... DD is sometimes "bitey", and youch, that can hurt. She doesn't bite when she is definitely hungry though, so if she has a goofy, mischievous look in her eye and bites me, I just figure it's not nursing time. I'm hoping she doesn't start biting when she is really hungry.

Sorry no advice really, just sympathy!

So I was back on occasion. It is a weird little town. But, it's sorta homey too. Did your friends grow up there?

Hi everybody; long time no "see." My family has been going through a rough five months but I'm ready to rejoin the July mamas!

So! 'Renzo is 8.5 months old. He weighs in at a whopping 19lbs and is about to start walking. He has four teeth and likes to use them while nursing. He's just the most delightful baby and though I'm now a single mama, I'm so happy to be a SAHM to Miss P & 'Renz. Check out my blog (see my siggy) for pictures!

Now, to catch up on this monster of a thread!

Celeste, it's so good to see you over here! I've been thinking and praying about you and your family! I can't believe Renzo is almost walking! Seth is sitting very well and is content to stay put (not that I mind having a stationary babe!).

I try something new every couple weeks or so, but no luck so far. Since he's somewhere around 28 lbs, I'm not worried about malnourishment!
Hmm, good to see R isn't the only one that gags. I don't remember this problem with DD1. Anyway we've had good luck with the mesh feeder. She did seem very interested in what we were eating but I kept holding off because of the vomiting. I think it's partly a texture thing and partly a control thing for her... she needs to be able to control what and how much goes in her mouth.

Celeste, so good to see you!!!! We missed you!

And Witt, welcome back!

Tanya, about that SA calculation. When I calculated how much I need I get over 18,000 mg of Vit C. Is that right? : (please stop doing the division in your heads! ) How do you even take that much? I have the tabs but they take a while to crunch up. For those of you who use powder, where do you get it? And does it make anyone else super gassy? Can that be considered bowel tolerance? I do have to be around other people after all

Panda thinks you stink... What a precious little face Kimya.

Quag that doesn't sound right...could you drink 18 packets of emergen-c without hitting bowel tolerance?

I ordered my SA powder from http://store.allhealthtrends.com/pgi...ctspec?NB-0452

Hey there ladies! My dh has been ragging on me about the time I spend with my computer open!!!!

Question: Do your babies ears smell? Mason's always stink after a bath, I know randomness...

I am glad the sleep is getting better for now Jami....we are doing better on the not waking screaming 45 min after going down, some nights there is no waking, and some it is two to three hours later, so that is progess. Normally whenever I reach out for help, things change up with little pressure from mama!

Two of my neighbors babies are getting tubes in their ears, they think my SA, vit c, garlic oil is all witch craft or something...I think it is the other way around.

Busy wife to dh for 5 years and mama to ds1 (11.09.04), ds2 (7.17.06) and ds3 coming Aug 09. :::

Hi, ladies. Just popping in. Do any of us live In Southern Cali?
Hi, Celeste. So glad to see you back. So sorry for all your troubles. Big hugs to you.
We are finally back at home. I have 2 days before I leave. My girls lives have been turned totally upside down and now we're going out of town. My house is trashed because we hadn't finished unpacking when we had to leave. I can't find anything. And I have less than 2 days to get all 2 of us ready to go. On the plus side, somebody in the NINO group around here is loaning me her ergo for the trip. I just wish I had the backpack that hooks on it. That would so save me. I'm foreseeing baby on my back in ergo and toddler on my front in mei tai. Where does my bag go? I'll try to post more before I go. I much to say but so little time. I don't think my sis has internet. I told her I couldn't come then, but she's insisting and since she already bought the tickets, ill have to survive somehow. now to get baby to sleep so dh and I can dtd.

Jessica, mama to Emma, 7, Mattie, 5.5 and Lilly, 3 and someone new this Halloween-ish.

so I went to my GP today (this is a regular, government funded General Practitioner who also advocates naturapathy and homeopathy)....

he gave me advice re vit C which was useful. I guess I feel a little more comfortable following a medical doctor 's advice (he has a very good reputation). Ok yep I'm just a conservative gal at heart

I have a vit C info sheet with a big explanation about bowel tolerance. Is this common knowledge? Do other people get this info from their GP's (doctors, do you call them GPs in the states?)?? If not, do you want me to post what I have??

I asked him about vaxes, he didn't vax his kids, but he did say whooping C was a "narly" one to quote him but said after a year it wasn't such a biggie but also said that regular doctors don't use all the things that are available to treat it ie vit c and homeopathy. He was supportive of me not vaxing with Meninigitis B (real scare mongering here about this deadly disease) and supportive of me not vaxing at all.... so that was reassuring whew

I forgot to ask him re what happened if I can't get it into Cerys, I forgot she isn't taking a cup: hmmm shall I just take heaps to bowel tolerance?? How did you get it into your babies???


Sometimes.... Claire Where is Your Head?? I ask myself.... then I remember my brain has looongg gone to the land of hormones and honey

I know they've had some talk on the vax board about the fearmongering about that vax in NZ and from what I remember, it is totally unwarranted. I just searched and found a thread you actually started and Mamakay and Suschi had some good info for you
http://www.mothering.com/discussions...d.php?t=588824

No, I would venture say most docs in the US would NOT be giving out vit c advice. You can't write a prescription for it! Probably a homeopath or other alternative doc would have the info but most people don't use those types of doctors here.

I'd love you to post your info if it isn't too much!

As for getting it into her...hmmm...do you have Hyland's products there? They make Vit C tablets (using SA) and they instantly dissolve in the mouth. That's what I've used with the baby so far...

Jami, So sorry you are having to deal with this.

Claire, count yourself lucky that your doctor knows and informs people about SA. It's not well known in the US and most doctors here would poo-poo the idea that it actually works. There are exceptions, of course, but it is certainly not the rule.

As far as giving it to a baby, you can take a dose about 20 minutes before feeding her. Or you can mix it with some breastmilk and give it with a syringe like you would any other medicine. My older kids drink it with an ounce of orange juice.

Tanya, I love the video ... so very cute. I love those giggles that never end.

Jami, sounds like you are going through a rough time.

Claire, Sounds like you have one great GP (yes, that's what we call them in the states, but not many are as cool as yours!).

Sounds like I need to stock up on the vit C just to have on hand. DS hasn't gotten sick yet, but it sounds like a cure-all!
