i used one starting at 2 weeks with #3 and it helped maintain my supply much longer than with the first two... plus, one pump session daily meant 1-2 full-serving storage bags in the freezer to use later, when i started weaning... basically prolonged the amount of time my baby drank breast milk without having to be there/whip my boob out every single time he was hungry.

My dear friend who has been a SAHM for over 18 years is a great example. She is very interested in politics - both at the local and national level. Reads a ton of books and online information. Local candidate stopped by her house (not NYC obviously) in his door to door campaign and was astounded at how well-versed she wsa on the positions of the party, on what the local candidates were espousing, etc. He told her "wow, YOU should run". And this is a woman who is an "old-fashioned" SAHM - very middle class on a budget, no help at all - she cooks, she cleans, she does hw w her kids (oldest going off to college now), she volunteers at school, is involved in community organizations, etc. If anything, her biggest problem is that where she lives, it's hard for her to find OTHERS like her and as a result, she has to go online to get to engage on the topics she's interested in.

how should they approach teachers? I rarely approach my kids teachers but i know i would rather an email than an in person approach -- then i get to decide when to respond and to think about how to respond. you can write a note but is that better? [ Reply | More ]

Only the most PITA parents will ALREADY have "issues" they need to address over Labor Day weekend, just 2 weeks into the school year. [ Reply | More ]

OP: I think only the lazy teachers will need a "relaxing 3 day weekend" during and after which they do not want to be burdened with responding to emails after being off for 2 months [ Reply | More ]

I agree with you entirely, BUT it seems entirely reasonable just to ignore the emails for the weekend. That said, what I would prefer would be for the prinicipal to state the school culture about expectations for communications a bit differently, i.e., teachers respond as quickly as they can. That said, it is not our expectation that teachers are expected to answer emails on their holidays and weekends, etc. [ Reply | More ]

OP: I agree, this actually made the teachers look bad, as if they are whining or something. I have never had any of her teachers say: please don't call me or email me on such and such days [ Reply | More ]
