Right now I'm sure you are way too tired and frazzled with a new baby to date, but I actually have found (from friends and neighbors) that the single moms with kids seem to have an easier time finding and dating men than my single friends w/out kids. I know a few moms who have met new men and are now with them, either living together or remarried. None of them had kids with the new men either. [ Reply | More ]

I think it was Huffpost that had an article about factors that make women more attractive to men and having dcs was one of them. The idea was that it makes the women less self centered and a better partner. I think you are still in the overwhelming first year but it will get better. [ Reply | More ]

You were me 6 years ago. I was in my late 20s single mom. Met an amazing guy on Match.com and we are now married. I never thought I would ever find this. There are surprisingly a lot of great guys out there who want to. I waited till my little one was 1.5 years to really date seriously FWIW. Chin up and focus on you and your baby for now!

Yeah, the thing is, I remember my childhood really clearly and never once was my dad anything other than someone I absolutely adored.

I don't know why he randomly occasionally pops up in an incest dream that leaves me scarred for the rest of the day, but I don't think it's repressed sexual abuse at all. I've always had very heathy adult relationships and no depression/anxiety. [ Reply | More ]

And some gut instincts are NOT mistakes. If you've been feeling his way for decades, then you need to wake up and pay attention. Keep in mind that you never once said that he has always been appropriate and respectful of your boundaries. Instead you said he was a good provider.

I wouldn't call them that. I think of anti vaxers as the crazies that are adamantly opposed NO MATTER WHAT [ Reply | More ]

I know someone whose two children have received exactly 0 vaccinations. They also "unschool" (watch movies and fool around online all day). They do not even have a pediatrician. [ Reply | More ]

I don't understand why a parent does a delayed schedule. I mean, I'm glad they end up with all their vaccines (eventually... not happy about the years when they are walking around without them, especially at the age where they transmit EVERYTHING to those around them, aka toddlerhood). But if vaccines are safe at age 3, let's say, why aren't they safe at 6 months? I don't get the logic. Their immune systems are pretty shitty at age 6 months. If anything, that's when you'd want them protected the most! [ Reply | More ]

They think giving multiple vaccines at the same time "overloads" their immune systems. [ Reply | More ]

I wonder where they get that from though- I mean there is zero research (or even pseudo-science) behind it. In fact, I've read that a healthy baby can withstand getting 100,000 vaccines at once. And that they are exposed to more antigens in the birth canal during birth than they are during the entire childhood vax schedule. I've never heard any anti-vax or delayed even refute that, is the thing. So that's one that I really don't get. [ Reply | More ]

That's true but anti vaxxers are simultaneously thrilled that normal people get vaccines so they can be protected and they are paranoid about the "man" taking over the world. Seriously fucked up people. [ Reply | More ]

I read an interview with a guy who studies exactly that. The typical anti-vaxxer, according to him, is umc or rich, well-educated, probably has a grad degree, has a career that allows them control over their own lives, and thus believes that a quick Google search allows them to know as much as an MD. They do not believe that scientists know more than they do, and they are not afraid of these diseases because they've never seen them. He said the defining trait was that lack of fear, more than outright paranoia. [ Reply | More ]

Anti faxes are generally loud and proud. Delay schedulers are just doing what they think best for their own child. Less paranoid. [ Reply | More ]

This. Hedging their bets. I'm all for vaxing but also think the shit companies put in those shots is horrible! Single dose preservative free vaccinations. Ask your ped!!! [ Reply | More ]

But why do they think spreading them out is "best"? I never understood this. If they're safe, they're safe. Right? What are you gaining by spreading them out, other than a few months of not being protected? No science shows anything close to the idea that a kid can't handle getting more than 1 at once.

Maybe shots have nothing to do with autism **GASP** (not meaning to be snarky to you, of course. just to anyone who thinks they are related.) [ Reply | More ]

I think vaccines do not cause autism. But I would not be surprised if they find that in some kids it can act as a trigger along with likely many other factors. [ Reply | More ]

My son is autistic. I am delaying my 2nd child's MMR until age 3. My reason is that I want to see the developmental milestones without any nugget of doubts re: MMR. After age 3 chances of regressive autism are very small. My pediatrician is ok with this. [ Reply | More ]

Jesus, people still believe the MMR causes autism? That man has had his license revoked, he admitted he made up his entire study, and there have been literally hundreds of studies that report there is zero link. [ Reply | More ]
