After an exhaustive search, I've determined that my iPod charging cable is gone. In fact, I think both of them in the house are gone. Sometimes things go missing with a two year old and a newborn, so don't judge me! I'm wondering if folks would recommend paying Apple for their $19 brand name one or am I just as safe going with a knock-off from somewhere else? I'm still holding out that it'll appear in the next day, but the iPod is running low on juice; I don't know how much longer it'll hold out! Thanks for any info on experiences with the options out there!
