I'm in rural SW Minnesota too, in Westbrook. We travel to Mankato to see family and take part in homeschool events quite a bit though.

My kids are 2, 6, 10 and 11.

Hi All -

My name is Cheryl, mom to Olivia, now 9 1/2 months old. She's been 100% breastfeed until 6 1/2 months and that's when we started adding solids. we're not vaccinating and we do use cloth diapers part-time.

I am dealing with a few health issues, so now I'm looking for a milk donor. I have a stash that will last for 3-4 weeks. We're so close to a year, but then I wonder even if we made it a year, I'm sure that we'd want to still supplement but with what? I was hoping there would be a goat or rice based infant formula, but so far I haven't found anything that isn't either cow ro soy based.

We live in Golden Valley, Minnesota

Glad to find this place.

Cheryl, mom to Olivia Grace (May 2009), Zackary James (Jun 2012)

both hypnobabies births

I finally get to join in here

We just moved to Minnetonka two weeks ago and we're so happy to be here! I had no idea that Minneapolis used lilac bushes as the roadside plant du jour, I love it!

We have two boys, 6 and 3, and are looking forward to hopefully meeting up with some of you
