Do the DDC posts get archived somewhere or are they lost in cyber-space somewhere?

I think they store everything. - yes, they do. I was able to find my old DDC August 2003...

I am bummed about loosing a lot of mamas from our DDC already!!! There were so many of us, but very few stayed around

Dangitall! The Life With a Babe thread is ok but somehow it feels less intimate. I like our DDC.... it will be hard to keep in touch once it's closed

Although now that I'm spending more of my MDC time on other forums, it's kind of nice to see people I know from the DDC.

I'm still really going to miss this forum, though.

we can always start a yahoogroup if we want to. I'd miss the smilies in that case! But if enough of you want it, I would start it.

Oh wait. We have one already :-) We can just keep using that in addition to the life with babe thread.

Not as intimate and some really snooty, judgemental people. I can't read often because I get annoyed quite often. Reminds me of my days reading at babycenter - except this time it is completely on the other side of the spectrum (super-crunchy vs mainstream).

I hope people will use the yahoogroup!

me, too. Never knew how great a DDC was until baby #3. And some of our babies are not even a couple weeks old! So sad to see it go so quickly!

nak

I imagine it's to encourage participation in the larger mdc community. we have many threads here that would add to other forums (e.g. babywearing forum, diapering forum, life with a babe, etc.) where we could get input from non-ddc members and also provide info for others.

I'm going to miss the ddc, but i do see the point. it's a nudge out of the nest if you will.

I was mega irritated at some of the people on there. But, I guess we can't keep our DDC around forever. :

The Life with Babe thread had snooty mamas? Or am I misunderstanding? I must be oblivious...

I'm going to miss the DDC too. No, I don't wanna be nudged out of the nest! Shouldn't MDC promoted a "CLW" approach to DDCs, too, just let us leave when we are ready?

Hopefully we'll see the Yahoo group pick up some.

CLW approach to DDC makes me !! I love the idea. Yahoo is a great idea.

I"m still here, I didn't leave, though it may seem like it. I miss the DDC since I haven't been on as much. The other day I was thinking it would be nice to have a reunion like they do in Lamaze classes and such. But then I realized that since we've never met each other in person, it would just be a union(?). I will skip over to the yahoo group to connect. Thanks for all the help and support ladies. It's been great goign through this together. Let's all plan our next babies at the same time.

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