poohchild - thanks so much for sharing your experience! The ideas you used (and worked!) for your children were very helpful. As Osal said in the previous post, there's probably not a lot I can do at this point, since my sister isn't asking for the guidance. But you both gave me some good ideas to suggest to her if/when it ever comes up in conversation between us. It just saddens me that she is not bonding in the most natural way with her daughter, and even more that they are putting chemicals into her. Thanks again for all your words and help!
