*~{insert tune to the song that never ends}~*… it just goes on and on my friend. Can you guess what it is?? Laundry. Tons and tons of laundry. It never ends.  When I think I have some semblance of control over it, it grows exponentially for no logical reason. Okay, so maybe the 2 adults […]

~~**CONGRATULATIONS, KRISTEN BOBBITT! **~~ Did you know that the same super-absorbing polymer gel that is in disposable diapers and disposable menstrual pads is also in those handy disposable breast pads? Honestly, when I first discovered this (don’t ask me why I didn’t figure out this obvious fact years ago) after Camden’s birth I ignored it. […]

My friend Emi of The Cloth Diaper Report got me thinking about this with her How To Clean Your Washing Machine series. I own a Samsung Steam washer and dryer and while it does have a Pure Clean cycle I can’t say I’ve used it as often as I should. After reading Emi’s “Daily Routine” […]

Indian Prefolds vs Chinese Prefolds Which to Choose?

August 12, 2011

27 Comments

This can be a huge question.  Silly that something so minor can bug the heck outta ya. Do I go with the Indian or the Chinese? Sounds like I’m choosing dinner options. Hands down, prefolds are the most popular way of cloth diapering babies around the world.  In 2009 and 2010, Heather of Banana Peels […]

What the heck is the RDIA?

August 9, 2011

7 Comments

No, not RDA as in recommended daily allowance, although I should probably check that out too.  But, RDIA. RDIA= Real Diaper Industry Association The RDIA was founded in August 2008, and is made up of cloth diaper retailers, manufacturers, diaper services, small manufacturers (the WAHMs slaving over the kitchen table), diaper information services (like me!), […]

The Life Expectancy Of A One Sized Cloth Diaper

July 26, 2011

There may be a misconception floating around out there. Yes, one sized cloth diapers will fit your child from ~10lbs-35lbs. Yes, one sized cloth diapers are the best option for families cloth diapering more than one child. Yes, one sized cloth diapers are the more economical route. However, it is NOT necessarily true that one […]

I love prints. But, I’m picky. Aren’t we all? I could list a million things I don’t like but it’s hard to put my finger on what I do like. This probably explains why I don’t own many prints.  I think I have 5. That’s nothing when you look at all that I own. Charlene, […]
