  • Any natural remedies for postpartum?

    I asked a similar question a few days ago but not about natural remedies....I'm only 2wks postpartum and my doc wants to wait a little longer before putting me on meds as she says it normall doesn't last more than a month... I can't take it though, at 5pm every night I'm crying and feel hopeless until bed... I do fine all day though.. I have a 2.5yr old and a newborn and I'm a single mom so any idea or suggestions are appreciated!

  • Does anyone know of bottles that have a slower flow than 1?

    My 8 day old just can't handle the avent slow flow 1 and I know that's as low as they go. My daughter did fine with them but my son chokes a lot from the flow.. Even a bottle recommendation with a slower flow would help...

  • Suggestions helping 2.5yr old adjust to baby?

    She's been staying with my mom since Tues. as I had a c section... I'm a single parent so having extra help at home isn't there. Luckily the baby is so good and he just eats and sleeps but I'm not sure how to help my daughter adjust to sharing me and things changing, she's very much a routine child.. Any helpful suggestions for myself and her? Thanks!

  • I need advice, and positive advice.?

    I have a 2yr old and just found out i'm 5wks pregnant...Yes i'm with the guy but he already has 3 kids from a previous marriage. I'm financially stable with one child, but not sure about 2. I am pro choice but I really want this baby, I just can't imagine abortion when I knew the consequences of unprotected sex...It only happened one time and I didn't think it would result in pregnancy, my stupidity, yes. he is pro choice as well and doesn't really want another child but would support my choice but I don't want him to feel like i'm forcing him into something.

  • 97 dodge stratus shutting down.?

    I have a 97 dodge stratus that will just turn off when I reverse and at stop lights UNLESS I put it in neutral at a stop light, then it won't. My car has been at the mechanic for 5 days, checked the electrical parts, they have changed the spark plugs, checked the transmission, changed my fuel and steering wheel pump and ran a test on the car and can't find out why it's doing this...The mechanic is a good friend of my dads, so he's not using me for money either..Does anyone have any idea what it could be?

  • Similac information for those of you having concerns?

    I am seeing ton of questions regarding this... has all the information you need (including a 1-800 number you can call) good luck getting through..It's the powder similac not the liquid so if you don't want to change your formula you can buy the premade liquid bottles (they are at wal-mart, target and your local grocery store)..It's insects pieces in the formula, your kid will be just fine, there's insects pieces in everything you eat that is canned.

    Most WIC agencies are not approving for you to exchange vouchers which means you have to buy your own formula until this is all sorted out AND most places that you bought it at can NOT exchange it until they get a letter from the company giving it an official recall even though they announced it online..I'm not being rude, just covering basics for anymore questions. Good Luck ladies! Oh and Good Start Protect Plus is an excellent formula if you are wanting to change.

  • New law passed in Oklahoma, what do you think?

    A new law was passed that all abortion clinics must do an ultrasound before the procedure, the clinic must also explain the effects the abortion has on the fetus and the growth of the fetus at the time of the abortion.

    Signed an Arms control agreement with Russia to dismantle nuclear weapons - Check

    Reauthorized SCHIP to cover all Children - Check

    Saved the entire stock market from collapsing (from a low point of a dow of 6000 within a month of Obama taking office, to close to 11,000 just an year later, basically preventing millions of retirement accounts from getting wiped out) - Check

    Passed Credit Card Reform (Minimizing Predatory Lending, Making the terms of credit cards clear, eliminating arbitrary rate increases) - Check

    Since the passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, have had the new job loss numbers from their peak right as Obama took office, go down steadily month after month, every single month like clockwork to the point that finally, this month is going to have job growth in the six figures (a trend expected to accelerate this whole year) - Check

    Saved the entire US Auto Industry (GM and Chrysler) from going bankrupt thus preventing dozens of major factories and hundreds of dealerships from closing their doors - Check

    Saved banks from going bankrupt to the point that they're profitable again and have now paid back all of government loans and bailout funds in full and with interest - Check

    Signed into law, new mileage and emissions standard for cars and suvs - Check

    Working on Education Reform and Financial Regulatory Reform so banks can't pull this crap again - The very next thing on his list...

    Here's my SOURCE.

    I think i've covered it...So now that i've given proof and sources CAN we move on?

    Oh wait..I'm sure the Republicans will have some ignorant comment to make about his accomplishments..Please, WHAT DID BUSH DO in his 8 years that was as productive as Obama's first year?

  • Why are the Republicans throwing such a tantrum over UHC?

    Why don't you all stop crying, suck it up and put your big girl panties on! We don't always get what we want. I didn't vote for Bush or agree with the War in Iraq but instead of being a piss ant I sucked it up and supported my country. By not supporting your President you show lack of unity and class. Canada isn't that far, you can always move or get off Y!A and try and do something ABOUT YOUR ISSUES! Or READ THE BILL..Every question or statement i've seen is completely off the wall and it's apparent that you are all complaining without reading or know anything about the bill.

  • Red blood after check up, more than spotting!?

    I'll be 40wks tomorrow and went to my check up today..She checked my cervix, i'm dilated to a 2 and scheduled for me to be induced on Thurs. Here's my worry...I've had spotting after having my cervix checked but this time it was red blood like when you're on your period and it wasn't really spotting, it was like a heavy flow, it filled up a pany liner...Is this just from my check up? Should I call my doc?
