Hi everyone, I'm a new mom to a one-week old boy. I've been (mostly) Paleo for a bit over two years. I'm exclusively breastfeeding (going well) and the doc recommended Poly-Vi-Sol for our son. He said if the baby doesn't like it to at least... (more)
One of my friends is due in a few weeks, and though we're (all of us in the same nutritional internship) having a shower for her after the baby arrives, I am snagging lunch with her in a few days and wanted to give her something small-ish, but... (more)
I ask this question because I see reports of what paleo peeps tend to feed their children. I see the odd sweet potato thrown in but even with sweet potato at every meal and moderate fruit, the diet would be less than 100g carbs a day. Do you... (more)
No, I don't think low-carb is optimal for children. And yes, it seems a lot of people round here feed their kids (and babies and toddlers - despite the fact that breast milk is mostly carbohydrate) this way, and it does make me raise an eyebrow. I... (more)
So I am currently nursing my 9 month old baby boy and about 2 weeks ago I started pumping for an aquaintence's newborn. He's a super lazy nurser and her supply is dwindling by the week, despite pumping constantly and trying to nurse. Anyway, at... (more)
So our little 6 month old got a high fever the other night and a test confirmed it's a urinary tract infection. She was given an initial shot of antibiotics at the hospital, and further prescribed 4ML orally once a day for 10 days, even if fever... (more)
Personally I ways take a probiotic if I need antibiotics. I get stomachache if I don't. I guess the antibiotics still kill some of the probiotics but it still makes me feel better.
I just finally picked up my half of a side of grass fed beef. Very exciting. There are several vacuum packed bags of soup bones, cut to manageable sizes. Assume I'm a completely ignorant fool having never messed with bones or broths in the... (more)
If girl who got pragnent has 11 weeks babby formed, how way instain mother? Girl gets eggs, beef, sweet potatoes, bacon, white rice, butter, ghee, coconut oil, wild salmon, wild sardines, lamb, almonds/pecans/macs, hard cheese, heavy cream,... (more)
Not asking for me..but sister, brother in law, and my 1 year old niece..who isnt eating much of the rotten formula/baby food she is fed anyway. My brother in law seems concerned. I sort of preach paleo to the family anyway, so I would like to be... (more)
The first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is check to see which badges I might be able to get today. I yearn for the reputation needed to flag a post, not caring if it's offensive or not. I have no idea what a rollback is, but I want it... (more)
Breastfeeding is embraced by traditional food communities as the best option for babies. Now Scientific American says, "Strange But True: Males Can Lactate". Lots of PaleoHacks threads on breastfeeding feature commentary from paleo guys... (more)
I appear to be suffering from withdrawal symptons, which I can only ascribe to the lack of posts from PersonMan recently. Is this normal, and to be expected by Paleo followers, or am I alone in this?
Sex is a favored way to make babies. There is some interplay between reproduction, repair, and longetivity. In fact, worms live much longer when food is scarce and they put a hold on reproducing. And typically, what applies to worms applies... (more)
I think you are going to find actual sex has less of an effect than the levels of sex hormones because human culture is so weird. There is ample evidence that men with very high testosterone levels die earlier, though there are some confounding... (more)
