    Hi All, Does anyone need "Simply Thick" thickening gel (nectar consistency)? My preemie needed it while in the NICU but hasnt needed it for the past 2 1/2 mths. I have a huge carton of 150-175 individual unused/unopened packets if anyone is interested - no charge!!.

    Jess, Did the docs recommend using this thickener? Also, please check to be sure I have the right consistency you need because there are different types.

    Hello I know you posted about the simply thick quite some time ago but I was wondering if you still are willing to donate your left over product? I work for an insurance company as a case manager and I have a member with a premie who needs the Simply Thick product, we currently do not cover it, and she is having a hard time affording it. I was online researching the internet to find the mom some coupons or product samples when I came across your post. Do you have any product left to donate, and if so, would you be willing to let me give your e-mail address to this member in need? It would be much appreciated!!
    MopStick77 responded:
    Hi all, I have been out of commission for a while, I apologize. Unfortunately I found a local mom who needed the thickener so I donated it to her. I hope you all have found a satisfactory alternative since the requests to me. Good luck with your babies, I know how much work it is!

    Dear (laura) loveingmommy,

    I'm sorry to day, but if you check the thread carefully, Mopstick gave it away June 2009. I hope you are able to find some locally.

    Best wishes,
