  • Can’t send chocolates (or some less fattening goodies) if you don’t SEND ME YOUR ADDRESS. Which I asked for. When you weren’t sick.


    I’m all for a breastfeeding and/or birth story sharing session. I think we are nearing the end of our breastfeeding relationship—that’s right, my boy is almost 3, and I’m now starting to wean him. Actually, it’s almost a natural thing. Like, naturally it would hurt eventually, since he has teeth. His latch has been slipping for a while *sigh* :-| But I’m a mommy that’s all for extending breastfeeding—-nature isn’t totally wrong in the fact that we still CAN do it this long (and much longer) out, or any of the millions of other things that COME naturally, but people have just chosen not to follow. (end rant here)

    So, let me know! I’ll definitely jump in! :-D

  • sounds like fun. although at my advanced age, it would take an act of god to remember back to the birth or breastfeeding days.

    the memory … it’s the second thing to go. :-P

    I’m interested in ANY kind of story sharing session you care to post about. If I can dredge up any memories I’ll share through the comments page.
    P.S. I was okay reading this until the “slurp”. Had to put the remains of my dinner in the bin. I was full anyway so don’t feel too bad.

  • i’ll hop on board for all three. going green might be the hardest thing to do – takes commitment and motivation – but i can definitely blog as if i’m doing it :P

    boobs and birth? totally my area. as long as we’re bitching. there’ll be some bitching, right?

    on a related topic, ever thought of sharing early pregnancy woes? i’ve put a few up lately and they really get a reaction – which makes me wonder if i was a crazy anomaly.

  • of course, it goes without saying (as i did), that you should get better soon and take as much vitamin v as you need to stay disinfected and pain free!

  • definately a PSBN I breastfed for both mine till they were three… Wow that sounds a bit funny now that they are both taller than me.. hehehehe

    hope you get betterer soon lotus.. Lemon and honey drinks for you.. but dont put boiling water onto the freshly squeezed lemon juice cause it kills all the goodies..
    honey into the boiling water first then a minute later add the lemon juice.. good stuff..

    have a mustard foot bath just before you go to bed 2 TBS of mustard powder into water as hot as you can stand it.. soak your feet.. then put on socks whilst your feet are still all toasty and straight to bed…

    I talk about boobs all the time. I’d love to participate in a carnival. I need to “document” my breastfeeding stories for both kids, so it would be good for me. Oh, and I’m game with birth. I know I have at least one kids story already written!

    I can’t give any info on the breastfeeding as I never managed it with Zack and, well, Max was BORN WITH A TOOTH. I don’t care how selfish I sound but JUST NO!

    I recently came across a draft of post I wrote of a forum I belonged to while pregnant with Zack, telling of his arrival so I’ll probably post that sometime soon… :)

    I don’t have kids, but I love birth stories and breastfeeding stories. I know this may sound incredibly odd. But if you knew me, you’d know that I just like to learn. And that, at some point, I’d love to be certified to be a doula or something.

    So bring ‘em on. :)

    Ok, I just wanted to say that this post made me smile for a couple reasons and none are the fact that you are sick. First, get better. Second, the turd-Jabba-the-hut thing, awesome. Third, your list of carnival posts sound eerirely similar to what ladies talk about in every co-ed playgroup I have ever attended. Breast Feeding and their pregnancies…LOL. I just had to recount my playgroup mammories…memories, not a bad thing, just quirky to me and a reason why guys and gals are different but cool. Rock on GF.

    Hi there, I’m enjoying your blog and just thought I would say that. There, I said it.

    February 25, 2008
  • I am sorry you feel sick :(

    I think all 3 are great idea. Except, I can’t participate in the BFing one. I didn’t. My story would include a mean old “lactation expert” nurse who needed to brush up on her people skills instead of trying to rip my gown off (she was rough) and shoving my baby on me. That, and having no clue what I was supposed to be, and too modest to walk around with my boob out asking for help. By the time I was ready to try again…it was too late. That’s about the extent of my story lol.

    I’m in for all three…I may just get motivated to FINISH writing up the birth story because of this.

    And we had similar bf probs, except LM wasn’t fussy, just had bloody poops! How great it that?? Ha.

They sent me home saying ‘oh your perfectly fine we can’t figure out for the life of us why you feel like someone is twisting a knife in your kidney’. Than they had the gall to call me back yesterday 8 hours after I left to be all ‘oooops we made a mistake you have a kidney stone, have fun!’

    I love the BF’ing and Birth story idea! I was actually planning on posting my birth story next monday and tuesday as tuesday(the 4th) is the munchkin’s 2nd birthday *sniffles* well i have to go pace some more!

    If you don’t mind stories from the dark ages I’ll gladly share with you my experiences in breast-feeding and birthing. And I love the idea of a monthly post for Nature. Our politicians keep talking about going green, but until Al Gore puts in some solar panels, etc. I’m not buying into politicos as saviors of the planet. Like most other things the war to save our natural resources is going to be won by the mothers who teach/nag their families to make changes in their own little sphere. Many years ago I read a Chinese proverb and loved it. What’s more, I think it applies to so many facets of our existence. “If each man sweeps in front of his door, the street will be clean.”

  • Definitely the monthly PSBN. We’ve been greening up around our house too, inspired by the first step. I’m adding a little “Going Greener” sidebar with rotating tips, and I’d love to insert a link there to your monthly pages too. And add bigger stories…the more we get the idea around the better, no?

    I’d play along for both carnivals, though the birth story one will be more interesting than the breast feeding on (unless anyone wants lots of medical info about how to handle a long-term ductal yeast infection in the boobies). Great ideas.

    Dude, I’m all about talking about how much breastfeeding SUCKS the first time around (it’s 1,000,000,000,000 times easier the second. At least for me) and about birth stories. I’m addicted to A Baby Story & what’s that other one called? The one where they bring the baby home? Oh, duh. Bringing Home
    Baby. I’m going to blame that on the wine.
