You See This?

It’s my nifty little virtual suggestion box. Daddypotamus and I are in the kitchen doing peach cobbler “research” for you this morning . . . so no post.

BUT – I’m hoping you’ll take this opportunity to fill this lil’ box to the brim with questions/blog topic suggestions. So, what do you want to see covered here in 2012? Vaccines, maybe? Video tutorials on making deep-fried GAPS-friendly chips and/or beauty products like shampoo bars and body butter? More recipes? Posts on birth, real food basics, raising healthy children, or [insert your burning question here]?

Your ideas make the BEST posts – I can’t wait to hear what you want to talk about this year!

What do YOU want to read about this year?!?!?

    I would also love some input on dentistry. I got mercury fillings as a child and would like to get them removed, but I’m worried it might not be safe (leaking? Too much exposure at once?) to get them removed while pregnant or breastfeeding.
    Also, ideas on how to keep kids eating well when staying with their friends or at birthday parties, etc?

  2. Grace says:

    I would like see posts about vaccines.

    DEFINITELY could use some more stuff on sleep training, also interested in extended breastfeeding and in particular my son (Micah) is now pointing at the area he gets milk from (ahem) and saying “what’s that?” (that’s his first word – sheesh), and I can’t get enough healthy & yummy recipes. Oh & have you ever heard of or tried oil pulling (I’ve been trying it with coconut oil sporadically), just wondered if what your thoughts are. Heather, I’m a big fan – HUGE. πŸ˜€ hugs

    oh sorry, i was going to say with relation to extended breastfeeding that I could use any advice on manners… he evidently needs a word now to call them??? deep breath, i’m stumped. what can we say that he could say in public if he wants to nurse? Well, he’s been sticking his hands in my shirt anyway prolifically, so maybe this is a moot point? any insight is appreciated πŸ˜‰

      Daddypotamus and I were so naive when we had Katie – we both called it boobey. And then she learned to talk, and ask, and yell in stores. Not funny at all. We call it milk now. Milk is nice and generic and comes in cartons so that people who are squeamish about EB can imagine that is what my son is talking about :)

  5. jen says:

    πŸ˜€ ha! πŸ˜€ well, I guess live & learn. πŸ˜‰ I could definitely call it milk, but I feel kinda funny since he is pointing at my breast & I am a homeschooling mom calling my breast “milk”, but it beats the alternative as you have so aptly pointed out. πŸ˜‰ hugs

    • Heather says:

      Well, the upside is that you are being an awesome role model for just about everyone: other mamas who need to know that breastfeeding past infancy is normal, little girls – and even little boys who will grow up one day and hopefully support their wives efforts to breastfeed because they are comfortable it!

    maybe in my little sphere of influence, it might be working out that way, but YOU serve as an incredible example for me & have definitely worked to bolster me in what I already felt was right. It’s really incredible to be able to find such an educational yet uplifting CHRISTIAN blogger like you right when I needed it most. James 1:17 “every good gift… is from above” I definitely am bolstered by you. So THANKS :)

  7. Jesse says:

    I just want to say, “ditto” to Jen’s last comment..I feel the same way! Thank you Heather and may God bless you!

    A topic I would like to hear more about is ‘lunch ideas for husband’!…mainly what to send with husband to work…lunch/snacks, on-the-go breakfast. It seems like I send Jared with the same thing everyday…lol! Basically, what are some good man-approved healthy foods & snacks?

  9. Stacy says:

    I also would like to learn more about taking care of our teath naturally or as naturally as possible. I also would love to learn how to find out what vitamins and minerals our bady is lacking. I am sure that my body needs a lot, but am not sure where to start in that area. Thanks for the help and I am really enjoying your blog!

    I am very curious on what canIuse to suppliment breast milk some. My daughter turned one and still nurses about 5 times a day but my supply is low because I am 20 weeks pregnant. My problem is I can’t pump so when I want to go out I need something else to give her. I had thought about bone broth but was wondering if you had any recommendations.
    I love your blog!

  11. Vittoria @ The Beautiful Things says:

    i think you should post about healthy recipes!

  12. Tabea Bruce says:

    I would love to read more about meal plans. I am trying to streamline my weekly meal plans, so that I can buy in bulk to save money on certain of the ingredients that can be used throughout the week in meals. Of course I don’t want to eat basically the same thing every day, and I want to keep it fresh and interesting!

  13. Eve says:

    Loved your informed article on the Tetanus vaccine! Would be interested to find out what you know on others especially on Polio and meningitis :) Thanks!

    this for tara the one with the 2 y.o with allergies in the SW. ask her if she has tried using local honey. it’s a remedy I have been told about but not to sure if it works. I would have replied via FB however someone thought I was spamming( what ever that is) in reality I said something that really got under their skin. anywho, I’ve tried it , seemed to give me some relief, though i’m not pollen sensitive.

    At our one year check-up yesterday, our doctor (an ND) said there’s an outbreak of Polio in Afghanistan right now and that with our troops returning, it will likely come to the US! What are your thoughts on this and would you ever get the non-live single dose polio shot for you or your kids if it did come to the US? I’m reading all I can and it seems to be spread by feces contact from an infected person, so most likely in daycares if hands aren’t being washed after diaper changing and then b/c little kids put everything in their mouths. We don’t have our son in daycare, and it seems to be most deadly for adults to get it and there doesn’t seem to be a lifetime immunity vaccine, thus we’d all be needing boosters, which non of us get. It also seems to be more common when baby’s grow up in sterile/clean environments and in less clean conditions, they are exposed to it early and develop natural immunity. I’m reading What Your Doctor May NOT Tell You About Childhood Vaccines and he’s an MD who does give the non-live single-doses starting at 4 months. I’m usually very much against vaccines as I had a bad reaction to them as a child and my sister seemed to get Autism after the MMR, but I also want to be wise and not compromise my child’s life because of being headstrong against them. You know? Have you researched this? I’d LOVE to hear your views and if you could write a blog entry about it, that would give me MUCH peace of mind as you’ve helped me make sense of soo many topics of motherhood and choose a healthy and wise route! Thank you!!!

    I was wondering whether you know some natural remedies for vaginal yeast infection or some preventative measures.
