If you have grow boxes or some way to secure it, I've heard that copper wire or maybe something a little thicker you can put all around the plants and the slugs can't crawl over it because it burns them. Hope that helps! It's so frustrating when you do all that work and those lil buggers ruin it!View Thread
Like we used to be able to do on the old format? Also, is there a way to pull up discussions we had saved from the old format? There was a poem I had posted a looong time ago and now I can't find it.View Thread
DS has always been quite small as well. When he was born I think he was in the 50% but has continually dropped to the 10% and now might be even lower. My pedi said he has been on the same growth curve the whole time so she was not concerned at all. I wouldn't worry...and DS also carried most of his weight in his cheeks sooo cute!View Thread
My friend bought me the diaper bag I wanted and filled it with all kinds of goodies: infant tylenol, small hand sanitizer, mylicon drops, a big bottle of water, tylenol for mom , healthy granola bars, nursing cover, those miniature bottles of baby toiletries, disposable changing pads. I can't think of the other things right now, but basically things she needed/wanted in her diaper bag. All those little touches were so sweet and so helpful as I didn't even know about mylicon and such when DS was born. That was one of my favorite gifts because it was so useful. HTH!View Thread
Once you did have a group going the members could suggest things they are concerned about or just want more information on. That might get more people to buy in since it would include their own ideas.
I think the idea is great and I love the part about the experienced moms/grandmothers coming to rock babies. Community means so much in raising kids and I'm sure would be that much more meaningful to women who may not have family or many friends nearby.View Thread
