Hi everyone!

Is anyone (California based) looking for an au pair? I'm currently in a non-vegan family and I'd love to switch to a HCLF vegan family :) Let me know, that'd be really awesome!

Hi! Thanks so much for your responses! It is sooo hard to find a holistic pediatrician in my area. Specially one that takes my insurance... the last " holistic" ped. I visited kept pushing for vaccines so I stopped seeing her. The one I see now is young and very friendly. She's just goes by the book, so I can see why she's concerned. However is never nice to hear someone tell you that your kids shouldn't sleep with you in the same bed or that I should nurse less and feed him more meat. She doesn't know we don't any meat, let alone that we are raw vegans.. I usually ignore most comments cause I know how wrong they are. Like when she told me I shouldn't nurse at night I wanted to say something but I didn't. Just smiled and told her I wil work on it...
So to answer some of your questions daddy is tall 6'1" but I'm tiny 5'1". My oldest son was a always in the 90%. Hews not even 3 years old and was already 40lbs 40in tall. Noah just sseems to have a smaller frame. But I'm positive hes healthy and after all, I have the tests that guarantee it. :)
Right now I live in Florida, so we get plenty of sunlight. However, my husband misses home and doesn't like our current city so he insists on going back to Chicago suburbs. I'm not very excited to move across the country and kinda scared of not being able to stay raw, I know how cruel those winters can be.!! So that's the only reason I wanted to hear more about VD. I know plenty of ppl that make it through the winter, I even met karyn calabrese and many other long term raw fooders that do just fine..but Ive been raw for only 1 year and I have young children, I don't want to expose them to that weather!!
Anyway, thanks so much for your time, I hope to hear from you again soon I will post pics of my lil onesss!!

Hey Bar B Sunshine.  I can tell you go to a traditional dr/pediatrician.  Ours had said the same thing, that's when we switched to a more homeopathic dr.  You do not need to worry about the Vitamin D at all. Our new dr said it is just a fad all the drs are going through.  If you are truly concerned then get his levels that will tell if he is deficient or not.  I would not supplement with out doing that first for the V.D. B12 is ok to supplement since it is water soluble and will be eliminated if overdosed.  I wouldn't worry about his weight, either.  Just keep doing what you're doing especially the avocado and nuts and seeds.  Kids still need lots of fat for their brain development in my opinion.  Keep breastfeeding as long as you/he will too!  That is great! Are you and your husband smaller people in general?  That might be the clue to why your son is smaller :) My youngest sister was like that too and she is just fine now.  I'd say he is just a busy boy and growing faster than his body can keep up :) Good job keeping him raw!  I am just now getting into this and transitioning my kids is going to be interesting

Hi everyone! I would like some tips/opinions on my current situation. .I have a 15 month old boy that has been raw since he started doing solids. We just came from a doctor visit fire a well check up and doc told us she s concerned about his weight. He's 19 lbs. They checked his blood levels and everything is normal. He's so so active, smart and active. He's started walking when he was 9 months and a month later he was running change his older brother! He was a full term baby 42 weeks and was born with 8lbs 11oz. He was the biggest baby until about 4months then he kinda "stopped" growing. Hes long so that makes him look skinnier but hs very healthy and says all day. I always have snacks around the house and he's always munching on something. He's been breastfed and started solid slowly at 7 months. Hes still breastfeeds all day and once or twice at night. And sleeps with more as well. Doc says i shouldn't needrat night cause its bad for his teeth and that i should stop nursing soon during the day. Also that he shouldn't sleep with me. Anyway. I'm al for attachment parenting and i usually ignore comments like that. However i would like some tips on how to prepare raw dense foods to make him gain weight. We eat pretty basic at home. Lots of fruit and salads. I use my vitamix to prepare sauces and smoothies but that's about it. We don't dehydrate or cook much unless i have visit then i would steam some veggies. I make them puddings with bananas and dates and they also eat avocadoes for lunch almost everyday or other day. Anymore in a similar situation? ? Tips? Opinions welcome. Also.. vitamins for baby? I give my oldest a sublingual b12. But doc is pushing vitamin d. Thanks a lot!!

Daniel, have you looked into milksharing?  You might really look into that...nothing can possibly come close enough to human milk as a milk replacement, especially for a baby with major health issues.  Please check out www.eatsonfeets.org there are chapters all over the world.
