Ok mamas, give me the low-down on foods that are good for making "sticky" babes<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
I suscribe to much of the current vein of thinking on this forum, so tell me what I may possibly be missing, or what I could stand to add.<br><br>
I get plently of leafy greens, minerals( bone broth in a lot of my foods now), vitamins, good bacteria,grassfed beef, fats(too much I think!) and etc. One thing I have not had much of lately is liver. I know I need to get some and eat it like mad. I cannot afford butter oil right now, so that is out. I live in the Bay Area and get raw milk, so that is quite the expenditure!<br><br>
What will help? Any ideas? I am completely open to suggestions right now. I believe in the power of prayer, but I also want to do my part nutritionally. We want another girl<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/luxlove.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="throb"><br><br>
TIA!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/coolshine.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="sunshine">

Lots of Californians here!! I just started eating pastured chicken liver because we are going to ttc. It was one of the "special foods" in traditional cultures so I think that we should eat it today, esp for fertility. And a bonus is that it is cheap.I would think any of the "special foods" that WAP found premarital couples eating could be a good addition to a fertility diet. Seafoods, organ meats, good buttter, and fish eggs were a few I think.<br>
Do you take CLO?

newcastlemama- i do take CLO. And I agree about what you are saying<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I do not take it consistantly though, I am a vitamin dropout<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I always forget. we take them about 4 times a week. But that it changing!<br><br>
Thanks JaneS. I will look those over again. I am thinking I need something to make the blood thicker or somehting. I am O + and have heard O's can have a hard time with bleeding. I always seem to bleed a lot when I do, or for periods. SO maybe liver would help. Maybe my hormones are a bit out of whack since Siah stopped nursing as well.<br>
It's just completly frustrating! I'm pregnant, wait, now I'm not. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I also want to buy some clothes. lol But I don't want normal clothes that I have to put away soon.

I think it was in <span style="text-decoration:underline;">Eat Fat Lose Fat</span> that a woman was healed of excessive menstrual bleeding using high doses (50,000 iu+ Vitamin A ?) of CLO. I do believe that I had a severe recurring hemmorage after an M/C 15 mos ago because I had no retinol in my system. (I was a low-fat vegan) I took high doses for a few weeks (about 30,000-50,000 IU of A) a few months ago to help my body fight Lyme and give my system a boost. The is more info on high dosing on WAPF website.

Interesting info, I will also have to check it all out too. Can someone please tell me what CLO is though? I haven't heard of it, and not sure what it is. If it would help, I'll definitely check it out. Leilalu, like you I'm O blood type with similar issues, (except having trouble conceiving to begin with).<br><br>
Just wondering also, what type of butter is recommended as being "good"? By this, I'm wondering if something like organic butter from a reputable brand, or butter made from raw milk, or something different? Thanks.

CLO = cod liver oil<br><br>
Raw butter would be best. Organic butter is better than regular brands--I personally just buy the regular stuff though because all the other butters are painfully expensive.

In Price's research it was what the cows ate that was the most important factor in the quality of their butter. Grassfed was emphasized by Price even though Fallon seems to emphasize raw. I would buy in this order:<br><br>
Raw Grassfed (Organic Pastures)<br>
Grassfed (Kerrygold)<br>
Some grass/organic(TJ organic, Strauss)<br>
raw on organic feed<br>
organic feed<br>
conventional (which is better than eating canola spreads and such)<br><br>
I buy grassfed Kerrygold at trader Joes. Their organic butter says on the side that it is at least somewhat grassfed so I get that if I can't afford Kerrygold that week. Strauss dairy is also at least partially grassfed.<br><br>

Thanks for the information everyone. I've been getting TJ's organic butter. I don't recall seeing the Kerrygold at our local TJ's, but I'll look. I shop inbetween a few local ones all within about the same distance from where I live. WF here has the OP raw butter, but it is pricey.<br><br>
I should have realized what CLO is. Years back, a holistic nutritional author I spoke to recommended to take CLO while pregnant too. She told me it would enhance the baby's brain development and the baby would be smart.

As long as you get a brand that doesn't have synthetic vitamins in it. There are lots of threads about that on this forum <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
