Next MNO is Tuesday, the 6th at Bombay Grill in Pineville if you can join us.

Did you hear that Cady Asch has moved back to Charlotte, just last month? She is living in Highland Creek in the University area. She's on Facebook.

Hope you are doing well!

Thank you for the welcome! I was reading the "Finding Your Tribe" section at MDC (not a member there) and this group was mentioned. There wasn't much on MDC for Charlotte so I thought this might be a better bet.

Thanks for the welcome! And I'm glad the flu vaccine article was helpful. I wish I had known all of that info when I was pregnant with my little guy the first time....!

There was a price increase today on all Imse Vimse products-$.50-$1.00. The covers you have are called the organic cotton and are $15.40. There is a soft cover that is white and is $$12.50. The contours are a 4 pack for 37.85 for the flannel and $56.55 for the Terry. Individually $8.95 or $14.95. I can place an order whenever you are ready. I am running a sale of 15% off through Friday on my current inventory of IV-Training pants and All in one diapers . They can be seen on my site. I am so glad you could use those. I am much better at the pocket diapers. I just got some of the organic Bum Genius All in ones and love those too! If you can come to the Trendy Tots event, there will be door prizes and I have a friend of mine who has a green business coming as well. She has the water bottles and reusable stuff. We need to get together.

I am going to look into it. I have an HE washer too. Also, I have a couple of Imse Vimse organic cotton covers (used lightly) and 2 flannelette and 2 terry contours uedlightly. I tried these to possible market and I am not that coordinated. They work fantastic!! but my hsband won't use them. I don't think I will market them. I also have 2 new of each kind of contour. Do you or anyone you knowwant to buy them? I guess the used ones(2 covers and 4 contours for $50 and the new ones all 4 for $23? Does that sound reasonable?

Were you the one who told me about Dr Bronners? i bought a small bottle. It says for diapers on the bottle as well as laundry. Have you tried it? I have a customer who has very hard water out in New mexico.

I'm interested in homebirth. A little tentative though. I've had monster menstrual cramps for over ten years that I haven't seemed to handle without some pain med or another (usually tylenol or advil). The rest of my life I pretty much handle naturally- herbs, relaxation techniques, meditation, etc. I want a natural birth. Waterbirth in particular. But I haven't found any places around here that support waterbirth yet. So I'm thinking home. We have a small townhome that wouldn't really be what I'd consider ideal but...

My husband is a bit on the "hospitals are there for a reason" side of things but he's agreed to let me make this decision since I will be the one birthing. I would love to hear more about your experience. I'm open to ideas, advice, resources,... lay it on me!
