  9. WOW a big baby! Robin I have always wonder if my illness had an effect on the size of my big babies?!?!?!? I also had an issue with pre-eclampsia with the first, maybe the second and definitely the third pregnancy. My 24hr protein was 4,300mgs (normal 100-200mg/day). Just as FYI my three pregancies produced very large babies and I never had getational diabetes. I was screened by O'Sullivan test (a 1-hour blood glucose determination after a sugar drink) and passed each time. NO one really could say why the babies were so large-especially the ones that would have been quite large if I hadn't went into labor early. First - delivered around 40 weeks/due date she weighed 10 pounds 6 oz Second- identical twins delivered 6 weeks early- lost one baby and the other baby 8 pounds can't remember ounces right now Third- Delivered 4 weeks early another 10 pounds 6 ouncer again.
  10. Mertie - I think based on what I have read -there may be more information pending- I would feel safe using lavender scented products.....However, I would not use the pure lavendar oil directly on the skin..... I don't feel there is enough information to stop using all lavender scented products ----For example- how much oil is needed to cause this side effect or how long and often it had been used before the gynecomastia presented in these few cases. I think it was more of a heads-up that if you see this side effect in a young child then you should stop the use of the oil and you will have "rapid reversal of gynecomastia ". So as things stand now I will continue to use the Johnson and Johnson lotion...it says lavender and chamomile scent I would say do whatever you feel best about doing. Dawn
  11. Mertie- In the information I have found it is the Lavendar OIL and I believe it stated that a couple of patients were applying the PURE Lavendar oil directly to their skin. This of course is a different concentrations found in say shea butter, lotions or other products that would be a diluted concentration. The concept is that lavendar oil possesses estrogenic and antiandrogenic activities. It also said that the reason it may have affected the young- Prepubertal children have low sex hormone concentrations, so relatively small amounts of hormone-mimicking compounds might upset their physiologic balance at that age, says Reiter.
  12. Thanks for the link....I was trying to find the story on the Idaho Statesman site. We use the johnson and johnson lavendar lotion, but I am not sure of the true lavendar oil in them. But good to know if someone has a child that shows gynecomastia and usese these products that they have been linked to 3 other children with the same condition. Hugs, Dawn Edit- I also found this link that dicusses a little more of the study. Very interesting topic Shelley! http://www.terragon.com/gemjoy/Lavender%20Revolution.htm
