Un-hooked

Can you refuse an IV or Hep block during labor? I'm 23 weeks and this is my third pregnancy. I just hate the thought of being "hooked up" to anything but a fetal monitor.

Am I being too extreme with this request or is this just hospital policy?

Menstrual cups?

I’m 34 weeks along with my second baby, and will hopefully be delivering at home. I’ve been toying with the idea of taking the plunge into the world of menstrual cups when AF returns, but I’m kind of overwhelmed. Baby will be exclusively breast fed, but so was my daughter and AF still came back at 10 weeks postpartum, so that’s why I’m asking now. I was never a fan of tampons. I couldn’t get them in right, and they never fit comfortably. I’ve always been a pad user. I think I’ll get some Mama cloth to have on hand, but I really like the idea of a cup. So, for those of you who use them, what’s your favorite? If it matters, I’m a taller lady, around 5’10”, and have a pretty long vaginal canal.I was looking at the Moon cup on Amazon, but it only has a .8 ounce capacity, which really doesn’t seem like very much. Thoughts? Thanks!

What's Lazy Eyes?

The Doctor said that my daughter got Lazy Eyes. Does Anybody know about Lazy Eyes and the treatment for this kind of illness? I'm little confused to hear this news.

Baby wash/soap

What baby wash or soap would you recommend?  We have been using Baby Dove, but now that I'm looking into making my own wipe solution, I would love something as natural as possible.  It needs to be aloe free as I'm allergic.

natural tooth care

Hi all, my name is Siobhan. My daughter (first baby) is 7 months old & has one tooth halfway in & the one beside it about to burst through, both are on the bottom middle. That information isn't really relevant, but there you go. I usually brush with J.A.S.O.N. brand toothpaste, or baking soda & a drop of tea tree oil myself, but I'm certain the latter isn't appropriate for Clea as tea tree oil can be hard on the kidneys when ingested & too much baking soda ingested can cause a rise in blood pressure, & perhaps any toothpaste at all is unnecessary. I definitely want to avoid fluoride.

I'm wondering what you all did/do in terms of early tooth care, & what are your thoughts on fluoride treatments ?

Thanks in advance, & apologies if there was a tag dealing with this. I checked, but maybe missed something.

:)

Hyland's teething tablets

So I know that these have been a go to for parents for years. I was just wondering what everyone's feelings are about them after the FDA warning. Would you give them to your infant?

**UPDATE** Thanks everyone! I went ahead and ordered some. We used tylenol last night before bed but I really only want to use it as a last resort not a multiple times a day thing. I did some more digging and was only able to find the original FDA recall notice and the FAQ on the Hyland's page. I found their answers to be thorough and I feel comfortable using this product. Also thanks for all the other tips I will be trying them.

Sauerkraut

It's been a perfect year for cabbage, but we have too much to eat fresh so I wanted to make sauerkraut. I don't have a crock, but I do have several very large stainless steal pots. Would it be safe to use these?

Thanks everyone, I'm a little nervous about using canning jars, you are supposed to salt the cabbage down, until the liquid covers the top layer of cabbage, I wonder if the jar would break? I guess that I'll buy a crock.

for fermenters/ kombucha drinkers

I am part of an underground traditional food/ brewing revival. My daughter just loves homemade kombucha and talks to the cultures with me.
This is my latest article for Elephant Journal about how to make homemade kombucha using a tasty 2nd anaerobic fermentation technique. Easy peasy and delish!

Cheers!

p.s I forgot to mention on the air valve you are supposed to fill up to the fill line with water to create a true seal :)

I hate you PMS

I'm looking for your best PMS remedies. My whole cycle tends to be pretty dramatic and out of whack but the PMS brings upon increased anxiety, crying spells, mood swings, etc. I know of remedies that help with those specific symptoms but maybe I should go more the route of healthy hormone support? Either way, bring on the tips!

Side note, I take a B Complex vitamin daily all month.
