re: Wtf are cloth diapers and are they cheaper in the long run? - Queen
Subscribe to diapers on Amazon Prime. I checked prices on the same brands at Sam’s and it is cheaper to subscribe unless you buy an off brand because of the 20% discount. We spend like $35/month at most. A month box is about right. Mine is in size 4 and about to start potty training, and we actua...

Recommend a router with a krack patch - Queen
I'm still using an old Linksys black and blue router. We tried to upgrade once before, but whatever router we tried wouldn't sync with my TiVo. Not that Linksys has even said anything about the WPA2 security issue, but there hasn't been a firmware update for my router in a long time. I've never ...

re: As a parent, what would you do? Cheerleading coach on video forcing girls into splits - Queen
[quote] How were they cheerleaders if they couldn't do the splits? [/quote] I was a cheerleader. Could only do a split on one side. I could flip all the way down the football field, and that was more important. Only the dance team was required to try out with splits. That said, this techni...

re: Good websites to find people to do marketing/design work? - Queen
I second the 99Designs suggestion. You'll get a few options back and you pick what you like and go from there. If you just need a logo or something, that's great. If you need something more in-depth, you may want to reach out to design firms in your area. Consider that if you're trying to do an ...

re: "The opioid crisis" - Queen
I had surgery a couple months ago and when I woke up they asked what my pain level was on a scale of 1-10. I told them a 6. They said "I don't believe you, it should hurt more." They gave me 20 oxycodone. I maybe took three. Had an ingrown toenail cut out and the doctor gave me 20 lortabs. I too...

re: Experiences with Social Media Marketing for Business? - Queen
I do PR. Part of my job is helping small businesses with social. Whether it works for you totally depends on what type of business you have and who your audience is. Low barrier to entry (like a restaurant) or something that can be purchased online are great. High barrier, narrower audiences...

re: How do I get my kid to quit biting - Queen
I bit mine back, hard enough to hurt, and it slowed her down. Didn't stop. We did time out and spanking when appropriate, and it slowed, but didn't stop. You need to have help from the daycare. If they aren't willing to work with you, find a new daycare - either one with fewer kids per classroom...

re: Getting a 3 year old to eat vegetables - Queen
Rice some cauliflower and mix it up with the bread crumbs for the coating when you make him some chicken tenders. Give him a fruit smoothie with a little spinach puréed in. Not joking, put zucchini or carrots in brownies. Done right he won't know. Then be patient. He'll get over it. My sister su...

re: Willamette Valley Trip - Queen
Of course you're going to do a wine tour. So my advice is to do this wine tour: [link=(http://backcountrywine.tours/)]Backcountry[/link]. I did it a few years ago. Guy does door-to-door pickup and dropoff. He goes to smaller wineries that are family owned (like 7500 or fewer bottles/year) for th...

[quote]video monitor is awesome[/quote] Second this. Check the radius of it before you buy, though. Our house isn't very big, but the monitor won't catch signal on our patio. So I also had to get a sound monitor that would reach farther. :banghead: The video monitor is good for not going in th...

Haven't read every post in the thread, but I am a mom! - Nursing a kid is beneficial to their health and your wallet. Try it. - Get the infant car seat that clicks into the base. Bases are cheap. You can use that seat for a while. When you're ready for a convertible seat once your kid gets big...

re: Favorite Places in Memphis - Queen
Seeing mention of Raiford's - go if you can. But not before at least 11/11:30 pm. It is dead before that. Also when you buy your 40s at the bar (because that is how they sell beer) don't bring it on the dance floor or the bouncers will like body slam you because the floor lights up and they don't wa...

re: Favorite Places in Memphis - Queen
What area of town are you staying in? Central BBQ - barbecue nachos on house made chips (you have to ask for the house made! They default to tortilla chips) Rendezvous is overrated and crowded. Skip it. Flight is amazing. Call now if you expect to get a reservation. Place books solid on ra...

re: Punta Cana - Anyone know how bad the Zika Virus is down there? - Queen
Agree with the women in this thread. My sister asked husband and I to go on a Caribbean vacation with her and her husband this month. We've been trying, so I said no because of the possibility I'd be pregnant. Not worth the risk, IMO. We can go later when we're done having kids. ...
