Jan 25th 2008 1:52AM as a registered nurse; for 21 years in a large urban hospital (adult icu and picu history), i can tell you to blame; INSURANCE COMPANIES before you begin to blame the hospital, doctor or nurse, for lack of "service". in my experience, i can very honestly tell you; that hospitals (including the doctors and nurses who work in them); are generally; quite good.
in my opinion, i think america needs to invest alot more of its time and money; on treatment and early diagnosis of mental illness instead.
if i was president,
i would end the war, triple the number of nurses~aides in hospitals and nursing homes, and invest heavily, monitarily-wise at minimum; in mental health.
Jan 7th 2008 9:05PM when my daughter was in girl scouts, i always hated the cookie selling part. mostly, because some of the mothers went crazy~overboard, getting all excited about having their child or the whole group win awards for selling the most. usually, those mothers sold them themselves, not their children! the other awful thing was the badges that girls "earned" by doing various activities. the activities for the most part were just fun and in my opinion, did not warrant a badge. badges should be harder to obtain in order for one to feel proud of them. plus, they werent cheap! luckily, my daughter didnt care about the badges as much as some of the MOTHERS did in our group! i agree with other writers here. get the girls to raise money for their troops by organizing lemonade stands or by making their own cookies!
Sep 21st 2007 11:58PM one more thing to add, is that indeed, many medications are passed thru breast milk. this alone should be a huge consideration for those considering swapping babies to breastfeed.
Sep 21st 2007 11:52PM i breastfed all three of my children, as did my sister's their own children. as far as for swapping babies, there are a few things to consider. (i am also an rn, with an extensive history of working in a nicu, picu and pedi units for many years) first of all, breastfeeding places big demands nutritionally on the mother. if there is not enough calcium in her diet, the calcium in the breast milk will be taken from the bones. a nursing mother needs to take extra calcium, to supplement her diet with vitamins etc.also, most important, is that nursing mother MUST drink extra water to be able to keep up w the demands of breastfeeding. thirdly, a mothers milk supply takes a week to catch up to the nursing needs of an infant/ for example, if a baby nurses alot, then the following week, the breasts will begin to really make more milk to keep up with the demands of a growing infant. the more you nurse, the more milk you will produce. therefore, a friend nursing two children will produce enough milk 24/7 for two! she will need extra calcium too, and lots more water and sleep! there are also some diseases that May be transferred in the milk. in short, i think its best to only breastfeed your own, unless another infant seriously needs your help in some way.

Mar 23rd 2007 1:32AM i am saddened by his decision to keep running. i think the photo of him giving his speech, while his wife stands there; SMILING up at him, after she found out no more than two days ago that she is going to die. that is much, much too much for that woman to be handling right now. he doesnt seem to notice or care.
