    Re: Frenulum clip-what to expect?

    I took my son to have his frenulum clipped when he was 4 days old. I held him in my lap (he cried because I was holding him still). The ENT swabbed some Lidocaine on either side of the frenulum,...
  9. Re: BF for more than a year - people judgment

    You might try charting your temps/mucus signs. My cycles are a little wacky due to a thyroid/hormone issue. I know about when to expect them, but I know when my basal temperature plumments I'd...
