Your Baby’s Safe…Are You?

May 28, 2008


A funny story turned into quite an experiment. Weeks ago my son found a couple of menstrual pads and stuck them to his body. In an effort to recycle, I used them as a padding for our tree stake. No one but us could tell that it was a pad protecting our tree from the […]

Everyone always wants to know what the most absorbent diaper is. We currently have a nighttime routine that works perfect for us but I am always interested in diapers that perform well. As my afternoon entertainment, I performed an absorbency test (with 1 child pooping on the floor, another falling face first on the pavement […]

Pocket Diaper Inserts

May 7, 2008


A pocket diaper doesn’t work without an insert. Depending on the insert, you could have a very trim diaper or a big bubble butt. Inserts are extremely easy to make, but for those who are sewing-challenged (I’m raising my hand) there are dozens of choices. I have divided the different inserts by the material they […]

My Top 4 Pocket Cloth Diapers

May 2, 2008


I have been excited to write about my favorite pocket cloth diapers but had to wait for the arrival of a particular brand I wanted to try. A pocket diaper does not require a cover (there are a few pocket fitted cloth diapers that do). Pocket cloth diapers are sewn on 3 sides with the […]
