  • @catlady1215 that's ok! I did it from mobile so I couldn't figure out how to post just the video and I know some people don't have FB.

  • @doxiemoxie212 - Not that I've seen, but I haven't been stalking other boards as much. BGs are always slow as molasses when it comes to sticky-ing (except that one time in like May I think? Where they stickied a thread within an hour of the request...).

    But, they have plenty of time to hand out warnings and TOU violations, there should be enough time to hit a button to sticky a thread. Assuming the framework of this board is the same as most message boards on the internet, it's literally one button that they'd have to press on their end as an admin... Easy peasy.
    [Sorry, went off on a bit of a tangent; it's just really easy to get done and irks me that it's ignored and put off so often?]

  • Bumping this again to hopefully get this pinned @BumpAdmin

    But also, I have a question that would be useful to keep the answers here. Does anyone have a really great registry checklist? Like, of all the REAL necessities, not just the overkill you get on the store checklists to get you to buy more. I think I heard about some really great excel spreadsheet version somewhere that splits things up according to "need" vs "nice to have" vs "just for fun". I thought maybe it was on Lucie's List, but I didn't see it there yesterday. I thought this might be useful as we all start putting together registries.

  • @icecubeinthedesert sign up for Lucie's List emails; the first email they'll send you is their breakdown. Take their google excel doc they send you, save it as your own, then add a column in between PRICE and TERM OF USE (age). Then go through the list and highlight the items of their suggestions you like, and put the price ONLY for the item you're choosing from each category. Add a row at the very bottom, total up your new column. This will track YOUR total budget, but it will keep all the options (with LL's included links, info, etc. for alts) in one place but also with your shopping list. BOOM! ;)

    I used an app called Baby Connect after DD was born to help myself keep track of when she had a bottle/how much, when she slept/how long, wet and dirty diapers, milestones, etc. I probably used it until 6 months or so when it was less crucial to keep track of oz drank and wet diapers. It was great the first few months when I was sleep deprived enough to barely remember the last time I ate let alone when the baby did. And you can add other caregivers so I knew how much she ate for DH when I went back to work or if she pooped while my parents were watching here. 

    ETA: I FF but for BFing you could also keep track of which side baby nursed from and how long. 
    I’m SO type A and I really loved documenting like this (okay I think it’s also the nurse drilled into me- if you didn’t document it, it didn’t happen) but my DH thought I was a little insane when I made him download the app and use it when I wasn’t home.  :D

  • @doxiemoxie212 I did the Lucies List and that spreadsheet is next level amazing. I spent almost an entire day going through everything and creating new columns to keep track of our registries based on her recommendations and articles... and a new section to track our hand me downs and purchases for the nursery. Thank you!

  • Link:
    Topic(s) covered: Circumcision (I know it's a hot-button topic and, full-disclosure, my son is intact.)
    Why you think it's helpful; why you trust it: It's a really in-depth look at the practice of circumcision, from a  guy with a PhD, who's a professor at Georgetown. Watching this video helped solidify the decision I had planned on letting my husband make. Be forewarned, it's 30+ minutes long, but worth watching, if you have questions.
