    Why couldn't she have waited just 5 more minutes before spitting and pooping???

    my sentiments exactly

    I confess I thought of Krista and her "Why did I give in to FB??" comments while reading these comments on a poll about breastfeeding....

    If you do breast feeding in the rich world, then you do it 100% for pleasure.
    Since you are pleasuring yourself at the expense of your baby's dignity, would you not be considered a rapist? As a 23 year old man can have censensual sex with a 16 year old girl, we still consider him a rapist because he abuses his own power. You are abusing your absolute power over your infant, if you breast feed, shame on you.
    Breast feeding came into being most likely so that the mother would not have to leave the baby to feed it. So the evolutionary reason for that physiological act is half a mellenia minimum out of date, at least in the rich world. You have absolutely no reason to breastfeed when you have available milk that is properly cleansed of all the artificial biological toxins that we put into our atmosphere. Do you drink your perfume on a regular basis, do you eat your soap? How about the drugs you take? Do you really think that the stimulants breastfeeders embibe in does absolutely no harm to an organism who was never exposed to such toxins? Yes stimulants were evolved to be used against predators! Breast feeding in modern times is such an incredibly irresponsible act as to border on the realm of criminal. You have no reason what so ever to breast feed, none! Well, none that are logical, perhaps 100% emotionally based most likely. Hmmm...you are woman, hear you lactate perhaps?
    Those were by the same person BTW

    Not even going to read the comments on BFing, LOL

    Good news, I bugged my uncle again about the party and apparently he thought he e mailed me a while ago saying they could come. Either I missed the e mail or it never got sent--but the good news is my two uncles, aunt and at least one cousin (all on my mom's side) are coming.
    I have another question--to further even it out, should I ask my stepmom if she'd like to invite anyone in her family, or do you think that's reaching too far? They only get to see us a couple times a year, but we're not terribly close. I don't want them to feel left out of seeing the new house, though.

    Yeah, that's definitely crazy and ridiculous. And the last paragraph you quoted really has my head spinning! It's actually quite humorous!

    That was very humorous indeed!!!! I would tell that person to learn to spell before he/she writes about not feeding one's child in a natural way.

    Did you get engorged with A? Have you seen a LC?

    I didn't get engorged with Audrianna, no...

    I saw the LC in the hospital, but it seemed like her main focus was making sure Charlie was latching. (And according to both her and the Pedi she has an awesome latch, and suck)

    never got engorged ever with either of my two and they both thrived until I dried up- one at 9 months and one at 12 months. Engorgement is over rated IMO

    Thank you Julie!!! I needed to hear that from someone

    Engorgement IS overrated. Is she pooping and peeing? That's really the only way to tell if she's getting enough. Hope she has a gain tomorrow!

    I did not get engorged with Elle either. I did horribly with Ky but not her. We discussed this in our birth month group after the babies were born and a lot of 2nd or 3rd time nursers didn't get as "full" as they did the first time. What's strange though is that Ky lost over 10% of his birthweight, I think 15-16% but not completely sure. They never talked about hospitalizing him though. I was visited by a nurse to just told me to nurse him every 1.5 hours around the clock and after 2 weeks of that he had gained about 2.5 lbs from his lowest weight. Elle never had problems gaining even though I never got engorged with her so engorgement is not all it's made out to be IMO.

    I hope Charlie gains at her next appointment.

    I never got engorged, and I bf the twins for 15 months. I never felt let-downs either.

    If you continue to have these weight gain issues, etc. . .I know of a FABULOUS LC in Overland Park. She's great. Hopefully Charlie will gain like a champ and it won't be an issue.

    Yes, engorgement is TOTALLY overrated. Oh how I remember the days I actually "blew out" breast pads. More than once.

    This may sound like a silly question, but are you relaxing while you're nursing Ashley? I had a rough start with Liam once we left the hospital and I remember seeing the LC for help. She introduced me to a shield, which worked great, but noticed I was seriously tensing my shoulders up. And once I started pumping I quickly learned that if I was stressed and not relaxing my boobies would hold onto the milk. 30 seconds after I would consciously take a deep breath and relax, oh how the milk would flow.

    Is there a chance you're stressing out cause you're worried about her, and not relaxing enough to letdown completely?

    I confess my mother is driving me nuts with our current email conversation.

    She's trying to tell me, the person with the degree in biology, that the way you can tell the difference between having a cold and having the flu is that you never run fevers with a cold and you do with the flu.

    WTH?

    My mom annoyed me last night--first she's like "you're taking Josh around the neighborhood for ToT right? I was like well yes, if it doesn't rain--and I told her about the mall ToT which she totally blew off and she acted like I was depriving Josh if I didn't take him around the neighborhood. Then she acted like the whole neighborhood will hate me if I go to the mall instead and not leave candy on the porch since DH won't be home yet.
    Then she said "You're all getting the flu shot right? You should get the H1N1 shot too" I just felt totally pressured. I haven't even decided yet if I'm going to. Probably not...we don't go to playgroups much, Josh isn't in school, I don't work....I just don't see us getting exposed to it really. I don't know.

    I confess that if you're wondering about the Bay Bridge closure affecting anyone you know, look no further. It's my main commute path, and one of the rods snapped off a support where they made the emergency repairs over Labor Day and dropped 5000 pounds of debris onto the Bridge.

    I'm now taking public transit, and it's taking me three transfers and two hours to get to work and then again to get home in the evening. Plus, I have to confess that riding a bus around downtown Oakland is not very pleasant. I'm perfecting my not-look-at-anyone-directly and make-no-eye-contact and my f-off looks.

    Dh commutes in the opposite direction, but the increased traffic on other routes has been adding an hour to his commute, too.

    I confess I am really irritable today and DH is getting the backlash on that.
    I can't help it. It's been forever it seems since I had good REM sleep

    The S curve was bad enough! The bridge is completely closed now? I hadn't heard. I have to get to SFO...ugh, now it'll be a 4 hour one way instead of 2.

    I've come to the conclusion that I really don't like my husband. I'm just not sure what to do with this revelation.

    That is too bad. I didn't like my DH for a long time until a few months ago. I decided to focus on myself and forget about him and his selfishness. I told him that, that he was selfish and self centered and materialistic, chauvinistic, and sexist. I told him a lot of things that I was holding back in order to get along. I also told him if he didn't stop being like that I was going to get sick of him and leave. He decided to stop being an ass and I like him again. I still don't feel like I love him the way I used to but it is a different kind of love now that is different but good.
