Within the next couple weeks, I will be taping a few NPR radio shows: pilots for a regular weekly series with an emphasis on BF, AP, Family Bed, vaccine alternatives,. homeopathy and the way we here view medical care and parenting and more.

I would like some "call-in" questions.

These will be taped show initially so the producer will take your number, arrange a pre-set time and call you.

Mary Beth at [email protected] is handling this and I'd appreciate your spreading the word and emailing her.

Thank you!

Dr. Gordon! Stick around here long enough and your ears will be burning - you're cited quite frequently on the Family Bed and Breastfeeding fora.

I'm looking forward to your NPR shows.

I am so happy Dr Gordon! The more information we can get out there the better, especially from an MD!
I hope the show will take Canadian callers.


Nice to have you here.

I'm curious what kind of questions you are looking for. I've always got questions, but they aren't always related to AP.

(little gushing here, you're web site is one of my favorites)

to the board, stay a while, take your coat off.

Thank you!

I just taped a little this morning and am really excited now.

We took a couple practice phone calls and I had a lot of fun.

I am getting clobbered in a couple of other places on MDC and will accept at least a little gushing.

Hi Dr. Jay!

I just emailed Mary Beth and sent in a question about diet and what to feed the family that is safe. My concern being mainly the toxic levels in fish.

I hope I get chosen as Im curious what your answer might be. And I think your views on some of the more controversial issues are right on!

THank you!

As you've probably gathered, MDC is a place with a lot of outspoken posters with strong opinions. (I'm one of them!) I hope you won't get scared off. This really is a great place, and a safe haven away from the mainstream for some not-so-mainstream issues. You've run into some passionate advocates for some of the causes here, like anti-circ, anti-vax, etc. but there are plenty of mamas here who circ and/or vax and/or formula feed; it's a big community.

If Dr. Sears came here, he'd have to don an asbestos suit in breastfeeding - many mamas aren't too happy with him about his links to formula ads on his website! He'd probably get a similar welcome from the intactivists as well. I guess we all want our heroes to agree with us 100% on every issue we feel so strongly about.

I have my own website. I spend far too little time updating articles and haven't fulfilled my desire to have a weekly newsletter for well over a year.

Asbestos? Yes, I never understood what Bill and his sons were thinking about when they made their unholy alliance with Martek and the others, but I know why he did it: He has said that he feels so strongly about Attachment Parenting that he was willing to accept their help getting his message out. We all pointed out his mistake and . . . well, he's still Martek's guy but maybe someday he'll leave them.

You here have given me some wonderful new reasons to look at what I do and say.

Thanks.

Jay

Jay, would you, by any chance, know how us AP folk could find an AP type Doc in our given necks of the woods? Is there like an AP Doc database somewhere? Would this be a good question for your show???

I hope if enough of us gush over here, you will not feel the heat of some of the other forums. Welcome to MDC.

Welcome to the frey (or is it fray) ...








Am hoping your flame-retardant suit is up to this place ... :LOL ... have been following your fiery reception all around MDC and am thinking that some of the mamas are just happy to have someone to rail at some days (I know I am :LOL)

(And some folks can forget that you get further faster with most folks by using honey than by using ... ahem ... the other brown stuff (this *is* a family-friendly site )

Howdy!

Nice to see a real Dr. here, lol.

Can't wait to see what you have to say about AP and BF and even Circ. i'm very excited about you being here...we are a bunch of mixed nuts, haha, so don't be upset by anything you might hear. This is a great site, and everyone here has strong opinions about how they choose to parent...don't we all.

I'm not going to start a rucus here, but if you wanted to continue the circ discussion, it was moved here:

http://www.mothering.com/discussions...hreadid=123953

btw~~do you know sean hannity? Were you the person he was talking to afew days ago about starting your NPR show? I didn't catch the name of who he was talking to, so i was wondering if that was you.

Wow! Dr. Jay!

I'm so happy that you're here. I agree with what the other posters have said, get ready to don that flame-retardant suit, or at least carry around a personal extinguisher.

That said, there IS NO OTHER COMMUNITY LIKE THIS on the web. We provoke, support, madden, love, and cherish each other like no other on-line forum board I've ever seen.

The mommas (and few dads) here are articulate and passionate.. stick around and share with us!
