As for the post above....do you mind sharing the doc's name or is that too much info? I also go to Green Meadows and have skipped a vac and delayed others without any issues. Hopefully not the same doc, but dont want to recommend her if so. Just had another baby boy 5 weeks ago, so we are going down the vac plan again (at a slower rate than with my first son).
Thanks and glad to see there are others in the area on here!
Her name is Dr. Stewart
The gerbes on Ash has a large "natural foods" section with bulk items.
Maybe you could put a word in for gerbes selling cloth diapers, I bug the manger at the paris rd gerbes each time I am in. He said I could special order.....I just want to walk into a conventional store and NOT see gerber cloth crap. Anyway.....OT talking on my partsss
Have you tried miraclediaper.com
They have a loaner program for cloth diapers.
The cloth gerber diapers at target are "diaper service quality" they are about twice as thick as the regualr gerber cloth but not as thick as the ones we bought off of a local med student.
My daughter is potty trained but I watch my neice fairly often and I use cloth on her, I dont really have a cloth diaper prefernce having ued only WAHMS, prefolds and happy heineys.
I am usally in town at least 2 a week, Sundays always for church and tuesday cause the free store down town is open I'm cheap.
I dont use cloth dipes anymore both my boys are potty trained but I kept some for when I watch kids too. I will of course ask if that is ok before I do it. But so many moms I know dont give enough diapers per day. Since I am working I dont watch that many kids anymore. I love babies. Anyway anytime you want to get together maybe you could show me the free store sometime. :
I havent met a mom who minds if there kid is cloth diapered when they relazie that the sposie are not being used. So it is saving them a few bucks.
Clark is where the Amish are, that is correct.
They have raw milk to buy. A few grocergy stores now where item are dented or about to go bad or are past date are sold for CHEAP. I have been buying organic baby food for .25 cents a jar. The past date stuff you have to watch out for but most of it is still good. Canned goods average .30 cents a can organic and not. I shop there a lot. They also have a new bulk store but my grandma says she is kinda of expenive and said just save money and to clovers. They also have the fresh seasonal veggies.
Anyone who is reading this, I can help you find the best shops out there....or even how to get there jut PM me.
By the way Nevaehsmom I am off this tuesday through friday if you want to do anything. I just have to be home by 2 DH has to work but Tuesday I am free all day.
DH is interviewing in the Lake of the Ozarks area in a couple weeks. So I guess that is about 40-80 miles from JC and Columbia. And I am used to driving long distances!
So I am lurking. :
I'm not living in Columbia right now, I live in Sullivan, but I am highly considering moving there in the future. I am tossed up between there, Kansas City, and certain parts of St Louis. I know St Louis but I'm really not familiar with either other city. I'm looking for an area that supports a more homesteading lifestyle but also has good schools and natural shopping,etc. I think living just outside of Columbia would be a good fit, but I'm still in the shopping around phase.

Thanks in advance.
I know this is a VERY old thread. Just wondering if there are any mamas in the area. I'm about 45 minutes from both Columbia and Jeff City. My dh works in Jeff City and drives there every day. I'm interested in birth options at Boone Hospital. How mainstream are they, are they natural birth friendly. Are there any other docs/hospitals in the area that would be better? I'm Type 2 diabetic and 19 weeks pregnant, but really wanting at birth with as few interventions as possible.
