I read somewhere that you shouldn't eat parsely if you're a nursing mom, because it can slow down milk production. Anyone heard this? I love parsely, and haven't been avoiding it but now I'm wondering if I should...?

I'm pretty sure you can eat it without any problems, as long as it is not every day. It is true that parsley can be used to lower/stop milk supply, but in order to do so you have consume large amounts, like drinking parsley tea on a daily basis. The way it is used in cooking and salads, is no problem.
