I made an icon! - Boycott Nestlé

I fiddled around and made my first icon today. Feel free to use it, please credit and let me know if you do. I also made it into a little button and added it to my profile. My profile has become an ever-evolving thing, so feel free to check back often and see what's been added. Thanks to wurdz, I added a hit counter to it today. It's pretty nifty.

Ah ha!
That picture is soo cute! The breastfeeding clinic in Rolla and I talk a lot. The lady there is so nice!

I had to stop breastfeeding though due to the medications I was taking. :( My first birthing expierence wasn't all that plesant. Short version is: 36 hr labor, c-section, morphine reaction lots of n&v. Dehydration. Bad infection in surgical wound, powerful antibiotics (can't breastfeed with that), no time to pump and tend to Tori left me drying up. Then pain pills due to excessive gallbaldder attacks, which then had to be removed a month after delivery. I'm just now starting to catch up with myself and get off hte pain pills.

I wish I could start breastfeeding again, but I'm almost completely dry now. I get one DROP a day if I really try.

Tori is so old now, Ijust can't. Hopefully the next one will go better so we can just do breastfeeding with her. :)

Re: Ah ha!
I'm glad you like the picture. I was trying to get one of her nursing, but she kept looking at the camera. I thought - well, that's even cuter! :)

I'm sorry nursing didn't work out for you. I definitely see you succeeding next time! How old is Tori?

Re: Ah ha!
Thanks so much! I actually can't remember if I signed the petition or not. I learned about it when I went to the DONA conference in July, but that was right before I had Ivy. My memory was pretty much shot. I remember coming back and researching it.

It is really hard, because Nestle owns a lot of stuff! The hardest has been getting Josh to release his Treasure addiction. Those were always his favorites, but I told him I just couldn't support that anymore. And now they've got Juicy Juice, which I always got with WIC. That's a bummer, but we're drinking a lot more orange juice instead. :P

Oh, and I took care of one of those double-posts. :)

Re: Ah ha!
If yourr eally serious about trying to nurse again you cold look into getting a supplimental nursing system. Adoptive mothers use this system to get milk, even if they have never had a child themselves. If you are still getting something, thats better than nothing!! :) Dont know you, sorry about throwing my .02 your way ;)

Re: Ah ha!
There is no problem throwing your two cents my way! :) I'm always up for advice. I would like to try, but that takes time, and right now, Tori is 3 months old... And an active bee. My daughter always wants to stand, we work on belly time, but that takes constant attention to get her to tolerate it. even propped up. Ah well. :) Anyways, I'm exhausted, to be I go!
