As of tomorrow, you will have a new moderator on this exchange. I will be working with her while she gets her feet wet-but I would like you to welcome your new moderator: Andie_WebMD Staff.
I have loved helping out on the trimester exchanges. It has been a long time since I had the joys (as well as fears and frustrations) of pregnancy but pregnancy communities were where I started working online many years ago and still a favorite of mine.
When you get ready for losing the baby weight-come look for me over on the Diet exchanges or if you have a craving during pregnancy but need the recipe re-worked to be a bit more nutritious-come over and say hello on the Food and Cooking Exchange .
Wishing you each a happy and healthy pregnancy and beyond.View Thread
Wow-two sets of twins. You need to look into the requirements in your state-some require classes or a degree. Most, if not all, require a home inspection. The trick is that I think all states have a pretty tight limit on number of kids total in the home for one caretaker.View Thread
There are WIC options for breastfeeding mothers or part-time breastfeeding options. You can actually get an appointment now.
Breastfeeding saves babies lives (though I can argue formula saved my son's life.). It takes some work to learn-don't believe anyone who says you just naturally know what to do. It doesn't hurt if you have good positioning and the baby is latched on correctly. It isn't easy but it isn't hard. Get the support you need .
