BlackSmallCyberSale for everyone

I've decided to celebrate Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday by running specials on workshops. Here are all my sales on workshops: special bonuses for the What's Next Workshop and coaching, and 20% off workshops coming up in 2013. Everything's listed here and runs until Monday night (Tuesday at 3 am so the West Coasters can play until midnight.)

ALSO, I think we should all be supporting each other and other small businesses and online stores, so if you sell something online, post it in the comments here. Remember the http:// and it should turns your link into a clickable link. Include a little description of what you sell so people get interested in clicking through. And if you wanted to give us a discount that works Friday through Monday that would be great, too, but not necessary.

Who should post a link? Anyone who owns a small business. Whether it's a handcraft online store, brick-and-mortar store with an online storefront, your direct sales link, service business, whatever. Anywhere in the world (but if you can't ship internationally, be sure to note that.) As long as there's an actual human being who runs the business, and you aren't forcing anyone to come in and work at 5 am on Friday, please post here so others can see the cool stuff you have to offer.

  27. Can Milk of Magnesia help you lose weight?i’ve got like two pnouds i need to lose by monday.and this lady at work told me that if you drank it, you’d lose a little bit of weight.i know it’s a form of bulimia, but i just need to do it this once.i’m going to MEPS and i was a little over weight. and i ran and ate right,but i’m down to TWO more pnouds and i just can’t seem to get them off. how much would i need to drink?do i go by the directions, or do i drink more?

  28. P.S. I am only the messenger!! (as you so eltlneuoqy put it)By Dr. Lydia Furman, pediatrician at Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital and associate professor of pediatrics at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, as told to Medela. The recent article in The Atlantic, “The Case Against Breastfeeding,” has many people asking about breastfeeding research. By its nature, medical research is a constantly evolving field, and the body of work on breastfeeding is growing every day. But the research to date points to one consistent conclusion — breastfeeding is associated with remarkable benefits for both mom and baby. Perhaps the most complete look at breastfeeding research in developed countries was an April 2007 report from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). It reviewed more than 9,000 abstracts as well as 43 primary studies on infant health outcomes, 43 primary studies on maternal health outcomes and 29 systematic reviews. The report concluded that there is clear evidence that breastfeeding is associated with a reduction of risk for: Acute otitis media (middle ear infections, the most common bacterial illness in children, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics)Non-specific gastroenteritis (diarrhea or stomach flu)Severe lower respiratory tract infectionsThe report also concluded that a history of breastfeeding is very likely associated with a reduction of risk for: Atopic dermatitis (eczema)Asthma in young childrenObesityType 1 and 2 diabetesChildhood leukemiaSudden infant death syndrome (SIDS)Necrotizing enterocolitis (a condition associated with the high mortality rate for premature infants)The AHRQ study also found that women who breastfed have a clearly reduced risk of breast cancer, and very likely also have a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes and ovarian cancer. While we are learning more every day about the incredible complexity of breastmilk, we do know that many of these benefits are related to the bioactive components it contains. For instance, secretory IgA provides important protections to the stomach, while lactoferrin helps deliver iron to the baby and prevents bacterial infections. A mother’s decision to breastfeed is often an intensely personal one, weighing many factors beyond health benefits. If a mother asked me, “Why breastfeed?” I’d explain the scientific evidence that shows reduced risk of infection and illness for mom and baby. But I’d also want the mother to know that breastfeeding is more than dispensing a nutritious snack. Breastfeeding can be the best feeling in the world—a unique type of nurturing that provides a closeness unlike any other. Dr. Lydia Furman is a pediatrician at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital and an associate professor of pediatrics at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital was recognized as the No. 2 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in the U.S. by U.S. News & World Report, and one of the top 10 children’s hospitals in the country according to Parents magazine. Dr. Furman graduated from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, and completed her internship and residency in pediatrics at Children’s Hospital Boston. She was recently awarded an American Academy of Pediatrics CATCH Planning grant to evaluate the feasibility of a “Breastfeeding Doula Intervention for Low-income mothers” (2009) Dr. Furman has published several peer-reviewed articles on breastfeeding, including research looking at breastfeeding in the inner city, aspects of weaning and breast milk feeding of very low weight infants. She is the mother of two children, both breastfed.

  29. How to lose weight wihtuot fad diets and something that will fit into a busy schedual?I am 15 and i am obese. No i am not skinny and say i wanna lose more weight. I am obese and i want help I just can’t find to right way to do it. I try everything and nothing has worked. I am a very busy with FFA being an officer and playing sports yet i can’t lose weight. For some reason, when i get bored i eat. Please help I would like to lose weight adn look good for the upcoming school year. Thanks

  30. Doesn’t seem like a good idea. What would prevent the phciiysan from then talking to the parents breaking a bond of trust between doctor and teen-aged patient? If the Federal CFR confidentiality laws apply here and they might (especially if the phciiysan provided counseling as indicated), the doctor cannot disclose information to anyone with a confidentialy release or specific court order. Further, why do we always seem to imply that America’s drug problems (and solutions) lie with adolescents. It’s time for some self-honesty about who owns the problem it’s us adults.

  31. i think routine drug titseng is a good idea. I think we tend to overlook a lot in teens. My son was a functioning drug addict for many years before we realized what was going on. Maybe if we had been tipped off earlier we could have done something more for him so that he wouldn’t have tried more addictive drugs.

  32. My baby had latching preolbms and I had inverted nipples so I did’nt really have many options. I feed him mostly formula but I also pump 3-5 times a day to give him as much breast milk as I can. It is also nice for my husband to be able to participate in feedings. I think this works out fine for both me and the baby. I never did produce enough milk to feed only breast milk and I think my supply is getting smaller. I’ve just started taking Fenugreek suppliments to increase supply. Good luck!

  33. I would like to read this book because I’m a bnerstfeediag supporter, am currently bnerstfeediag and am a first-time mom. My Lucas is 10 months old and we’ve been through a lot together in the bnerstfeediag game. We battled with my too small’ nipples and used a silicon nipple shield for 10 weeks. We also dealt with three feverish and painful battles with mastitis, and even though I cried with pain during nursing, I had great family support and didn’t give up! I am a full-time working mom who pumps every day (except the weekends), so I feel my experience has run the gammett- but maybe not? I am constantly crusading with my mom-friends for bnerstfeediag, and encouraging the to not giving up! I think its important to be understanding for our friends who wanted to nurse and for one reason or another couldn’t or didn’t. I would like to read about other mom’s experiences and compare notes : )

  34. As a La Leche Leader and nursing motehr I would love to read this book not only to finally read a positive book about nursing but also to share with other nursing moms and moms nursing twins that I know. It looks like a great read!

  35. Breastfeeding an infant doesn’t pluticraarly squick me out (I agree with the whole cover up, please thing) it’s when the child is a toddler and beyond that I start to feel all oogey. I saw a documentary not too long ago about a woman from the UK (I think) that continued to allow her children breast feed for as long as they wanted aged 6 and 9, or somewhere around there, at the time the documentary was filmed. They wanted it for the comfort and the bonding . It was EWWW as HELL to see a tall, well grown child lie across the couch and latch onto this woman’s breast. I mean, IMHO, if a child can articulate, Mother, I would like to snack upon your breast now, if it’s not too much trouble, it’s time for that child to be CUT THE HELL OFF FROM THE NIPS.Reply by on April 7th, 2009 at Tuesday, April 7, 2009 @ 3:24 pmI saw that as well.FREAKED me out.Sorry but as far as I’m concerned if your kids are old enough to help themselves to your boobs, then they can bloody well help themselves to a glass of milk from the fridge.That woman in the documentary obviously had eff all better to do with her life.

  36. That’s why I put that in my . I think there is definitely ncunae to be had, but I can’t understand why moms who chose not to breastfeed or legitimately cannot breastfeed think that means the entire conversation needs to be censored from ever mentioning it. It is one of many areas in which people are oversensitive about their parenting choices, but I think this is one in which people are way overboard in their reactions. I was just involved in a thread on a parenting site that tends to be fairly progressive, and that someone was being cis privileged in their speech. This one poster (who tends to be less enlightened than most of the posters on there) started howling about how she had every right to do that, for the transgendered person to stop whining, and then started comparing it to everyone on the site who told her she was stupid / evil / poisoning her daughter by not breastfeeding. No one on the site did that, at all. So, not only do some people freak out every time it’s mentioned, some people even freak out and use it as an example of their victim status when it is not even mentioned.MomTFH’s last blog post..

  37. I hear what you are sying and I know its right but I am a neurotic mhteor. I cut out alcohol completely and switched to decaf tea when I was pregnant and am continuing that while nursing. I also take a herbal supplement (goat’s rue), a multi-vitamin, pre and probiotic drinks, I avoid peanuts and eat two bowls of porridge (oatmeal in the US I believe) as well as trying to eat generally a bit healthy. I had a really bad time starting out, lots of bad advice from various professionals and my baby wasn’t gaining as much weight as he should have and so I have been trying everything I can to get breastfeeding to work. He’s now doing so much better, gaining about a pound every 4 weeks and I’m scared to stop in case any of them were the clincher.

  38. melodie, i love this Every time someone sees me bsrietfeedang I plant a seed. Every time I blog about bsrietfeedang and a new reader comes across my blog, I water the seed. And I do agree about your analogy! what a wonderful post!! happy holidays!Jenny s last [type] ..[]

  39. Now that temps are dropping due to AGW, what betetr time to spend WAY more on energy sources you all require to stay alive in your homes! Invest in green energy(Ill invest in a wood boiler btw as everything else will be taxed to the skies) and you can use that warm feeling from being green friendly to stave off the frost bite lol. Cant you people see that its a scheme to make us all pay taxes on the basic necessities to stay alive? Dont pay, then die. No need to send to collections lol. Most of the developed world happens to be in climates that require heat in the winter to keep from freezing to death. Hmmmmm. How convenient.

  40. Heck of a problem at our local kenepig the beer at the correct temp. As posters know good beer should always be served at room temp, but our landlords cellars are not coping with the cold. We have had to resort to putting our pints in front of the fire to warm them a tad before drinking them. Lord knows what it must be like for our Scandinavian cousins. I did however hear a strange rumour that in North America people enjoy their beer in this way. Very odd. I wonder if this tradition is contributing to what appears to be climate cooling.Act locally, help the climate, drink your beer nice and warm, you know it’s good for you!

  41. I don’t drink alcohol, cffeoe, or tea even when not pregnant or nursing. I am aware that the science shows that it is not harmful to partake of a little of these things, but I still disagree with it. Taking an aspirin for a headache is one thing, but drinking alcohol for fun is another. I just think all harmful substances should be avoided (even sodas!) when pg or nursing. I understand that is too restrictive for most, but it works for me.Emily Jones’s last blog post..

  42. First, bravo on putting up a blog. It can be a rally vblauale way for members to be involved. Secondly, happy holidays, and thanks: I have been out in public and on radio preaching the Coop gospel. Lastly: I think I didn’t know about the bag refund I always bring my own, now I’ll make sure to ask at the register. Thank you!Sarah Spitz

  43. someone needs to look into the clamis that 2010 is “going to be the hottest or is the hottest year”. Readers of your site know that “adjustments” are occurring Seconded. Especially with the refutation of Steig’s Antarctica warming in Nature. Willis? The Norwegian part of me is over the moon that Norway has broken so many records for cold, and that we now see so many Norwegians posting here. Norway has been pretty bad re. AGW and that is shameful because Norwegians have traditionally been the best weather recorders (and hence, climate observers, and polar explorers) through sheer necessity.The English part of me fears for the coming cold, comfort-wise.

  44. Akshat Oswal Posted on The basic problem here seems to be the lack of useirntanddng of what a grave crime they have committed . It may not be an offence which has a punishment of more than 1 year but the trauma the victim has to undergo is tremendous.

  45. While I agree with you in regards to bdesatfeering, I find the alcohol and pregnancy issue problematic. From what I have gathered, the exact point in fetal development when a bit of alcohol *can* cause FAS or other issues is not known. Therefore, its really not wise to play with fire. Who knows when it is relatively safe to have a small drink and when it could cause major damage? I am firmly in the no alcohol while pregnant camp for that reason and that reason only.As for the prepregnant thing, I think it is referring to people who are knowingly either preparing to ttc or are in the process of actually ttc. I don’t have a problem with this. No, all women of childbearing age should not be expected to live like they may get pregnant at any moment but the ones who *are* planning to might be well advised to avoid certain things, take folic acid, etc depending on their own informed choices.I’m not sure this post was as coherent as it should be. I’m tired. Apologies if I rambled too much.

  46. Breastfeeding is a wonderful and very vbaalule experience for mothers and their babies. The benefits are endless and really the biggest reason why women choose not to breastfeed is because of selfishness at some degree or another. (Women who choose to breastfeed but cannot, please don’t be offended this is not directed towards you.)Myths include the fact that breastmilk isn’t good for a baby after a certain amount of time (not true.)Another myth is that the daddy can’t be involved (not true) there is plenty other things to do with a baby.Some people believe the myth that the mother is tied down and has no freedom (not true) buy a pump. This also helps with the daddy myth.Another myth is that breastfeeding hurts. (not true) It it hurts then your or the baby isn’t doing something right seek help!Society in the US has decided that breastfeeding is gross, inappropriate, psychologically bad for the baby, old fashioned, etc but its not. Women have been feeding their babies this way for thousands of years I’d rather do what God intended for my body to do rather than give my baby an artificial version of the very thing my body is making.

  47. I didn’t even give it a thought. I’m a farm girl, and I saw grniowg up what happened to baby animals that for whatever reason didn’t get colostrum. They DIED. In my mind, bottle feeding wasn’t even an option. It was a great experience, althought it took a few days to get it right with the first one, it all evened out. My daughter nursed until she was a little more than a year old, never bit me once.My son nursed until he was 2 and a half, and bit me one time while teething. I immediately took him off and scolded him. He NEVER bit me again. I’m quite sure the one time he did was accidental. Definitely a myth that Mommy becomes their chew toy .they can’t nurse and bite at the same time, it’s impossible.

  48. I would try calling your local WIC ofiefcs. Maybe they can tell you how many women they help. Then you can kind of get an idea of how much they spend. Its hard to figure though. There are thousands of WIC ofiefcs and formula varies in price.

  49. I also have a 7 year old and 3 year old and nursed my baby rcneetly.I told them about the same thing you did. If you just act like it’s a normal thing, they will think it is as well. Answer the questions they have as they ask them. You don’t need to hide. Way to go! Keep up the good work! You are giving him the best food in the world!

  50. While I totally agree with you about this (and did drink while pnangert and breastfeeding my obstetrician put in bold type one drink a day is OK in his single page information sheet I did notice an example of infantilising that wasn’t about pnangert women but about alchohol.I don’t know if you noticed that the safe drinking guidelines for adults have changed again they reduced the recommendation for men from 4 a day to 2 a day. The reason? Lots of people were saving up the 4 a day for the weekend, and didn’t read the fine print saying that binge drinking was unsafe. I think alcohol does bring out the infantilising in a government body.
