Extended breast feeding

http://dianaibclc.com/2012/05/11/yes-shes-4-and-yes-shes-still-breastfeeding/

But the morphine made her sick. She was hungry and thirsty, but even ice chips made her throw up. “I don’t want to throw up again, mamma,” she told me in her tiny, weak voice. “I think nursies will help me. Can I nurse?”

Being Old Enough to Ask for It doesn’t forbid a child from receiving comfort from his mother – however that mother chooses to comfort her child. The older child isn’t breastfeeding all day or to meet nutritional needs, he’s nursing a few times a week because he still needs that “home base” connection to his mother, and breastfeeding has provided that basis since the moment he was born.

Circumcision is normal?

Circumcision is normal. It’s just what we do.-
(says women in regards to female circumcision, says men in regards to male circumcision.)

the above arguments for female circumcision are used for male circumcision in the United States. Children should not be subjected to genital cuttings against their will.(please remember there are several types of female circumcision)

Circumcision- practice and complications

Circumcision videos if you can’t watch them don’t subject your sons to them. If you can etch them and still have it done then I feel sorry for you and sympathy for your poor sons.

I know you love your sons. There is no reason for circumcising children. Let the adult choose circumcision if it is for cultural, religious or medical reasons.

Plastibell circumcision video

http://youtu.be/5MLtxCwdMv0

Listen with volume. The dr calmly explains the procedure while the baby screams in agony and in neglect.


Another plastibell circumcision. However, this dr was very liberal with the emla cream and used it pre-surgery and during the surgery in addition to numbing shots.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ra5t0OsmWf0&sns=em

Just because this baby wasn’t screaming doesn’t mean it wasn’t in pain later and doesn’t mean he may not have complications later. Also emla cream is not recommended for infants or genital tissue.

Holy fhtbhthh
You can’t hear anything but you can see the baby struggling. This circumcision was done with an electrocautery device. (Foreskin cut off using a burning device)

electrocautery /elec·tro·cau·tery/ (-kaw´ter-e) an apparatus for surgical dissection and hemostasis, using heat generated by a high-voltage, high-frequency alternating current passed through an electrode.

I’m traumatized just watching this. Poor baby.

Below: yes, this is an extreme complication. Yes, thus can be construed as a scare tactic. However, if this was your child wouldn’t you wish some one had scared you into sparing your child this hideous catastrophe

Another baby hemorrhaging… Lucky to be alive and yet supposedly the risks are worth it? How is almost dying worth it? How is almost dying because of a medically unnecessary surgery being performed on a healthy infant worth it?

6. My Dry-Shriveled Carrots. AKA, my breasts. After three years of breastfeeding, I got so talented that I could swing one behind my head and pass it around the minivan for anyone that needed a snack. I just asked that it be passed back before anyone got out of the car. (I do have some standards.) Now that my breastfeeding days are over, my breasts have been replaced by dried out, shriveled up baby carrots.

Monteagle winery

20130118-092306.jpg

Yum! After being in the vicinity for a yr and a half I finally made it out to Monteagle Winery in TN. It’s off the highway. It’s a good sized nice looking building but looks “empty”
However, if a car is parked outside it is “open” and should usually be open until 5pm
The proprietress does offer wine tastings.

I tried the
Chobel (spelling) a little dry but clean and crisp
The Strawberry wine- tastes like fresh picked strawberries. Slightly dry, clean finish
The Peach- yummy- sweet and clean
The Blackberry wine- literally tastes like blackberries. Tart and not very sweet

I tried the magnolia muscadine wine- smooth, sort of vanilla-like

I tried the mistletoe cranberry wine- very nice. Tastes strongly of cranberries and spices.

Also tried sunset blush and Midnight lace. I don’t remember what they tasted like but I bought them do they were probably not dry, slightly sweet, and clean tasting.

I was really impressed with Monteagle Winery Wines and I kick myself for buying liquor store wines when such great wines were right next door.

Prices per bottle ranged from $14-$21

I have no affiliation or even friendships with this winery.

my baby boy turned 4 yesterday and his birthday party was today. My oldest will turn 6 next month and all he can do is ask me if his birthday is “tomorrow.”… asking me over and over and over and over again.

Photo of circumstraint, an infant restraining device used mostly to perform infant circumcision

In less than 30 seconds, a nurse can immobilize the struggling infant securely in the correct position with Circumstraint. The immobilizer works on a proven principle of positive 4-point restraint. Soft wide Velcro® brand fastener straps encircle the infant’s elbows and knees, depriving him/her of leverage. The child is held safely and securely without danger of escape. Circumstraint’s comfortable contoured shape positions the infant, hips elevated, perfectly presenting the genitalia. The platform between the infant’s legs provides support for a circumcision clamp. Without pins, towels, plastic shells or the threat of strangulation, Circumstraint snugly and securely immobilizes the infant with their entire torso visible.
