I’m not a big swimmer and I don’t love potty training. But, potty training is inevitable and it’s hard to avoid water when the south Texas summers are scorching hot. Last year, when we went to the beach I took along our Monkey Doodlez swim diaper.  If you want speedo tight (in the legs) then […]

Piccoli Sogni. Unique name for a unique boutique. I recently interviewed Eliana Lobb owner of Piccoli Sogni to discover just what the name is all about and what makes her store different. For starters, what does Piccoli Sogni mean? Translated from Italian, it means “Little Dreams”.  I chose that name because those two words together […]

What Do You Think About GroVia Cloth Diapers

April 27, 2011

Okay, okay. I heard you.  You want a review on GroVia.  Here’s my 2 cents. I bought the airplane print shell with one insert to try out. When it arrives in your hands you’ll love the super cute print and bright orange “adhesive” area.  But, wash and dry it and the orange ain’t so bright […]

I am T.I.R.E.D! Should I still be tired from yesterday’s Great Cloth Diaper Change event? It’s not everyday that I wake up at 6:30! I’m a wimp. But, I had a lot of fun so it was completely worth it. My assistant was a life saver!  There were so many parents who knew nothing and […]

I feel ready. Wednesday I didn’t.  I’ve done a lot between then and now. My banner is made (hand painted by me because it’s so much more organic than a plastic one ;) ), handouts are rolling off the printer as I type, entry cards are cut and cake balls are in the box! Yes, […]

I realized last week that Camden needed a new nighttime cloth diaper system.  No big surprise, he’s 3 months old and everything seems to change at that mark. Up to this point we have been using a Bum Genius AIO (discontinued but you can still snag some here and there) stuffed with either 2 Hemp […]

Oh no, I’ve become my mother!

by Tara Dukaczewicz The decision to cloth diaper was such a natural one for me. It started long ago when I was just a child with a baby brother. My mother has always been so environmentally conscious, today she would have definitely been called “crunchy” back then she was called weird. She was the mother […]

How I Was Introduced To Fluff by Anna Wixom When I became pregnant with my son a year ago I started researching everything…….except cloth diapers. If someone would have told me last year I would be using cloth diapers I would have told them to go take their hairy armpits on a hike.  Other than […]

My cloth diapering story began not too long ago-kinda. It was kind of a perfect storm of events that got us going on cloth diapers. In September, I found out my husband and I were going to have another baby. It was a shock and we had been planning on waiting until he had a […]

Kelly’s Cloth Diaper Story Became a Project

March 29, 2011

I’ll tell you in one word why I started cloth diapering my (now 9 year old) daughter. Money. We were broke. We were so broke we couldn’t afford to order diaper wraps or even the good prefolds online because that required a) money and b) a debit or credit card, which we didn’t have. I […]

Should You Shop at Franklin Goose?

March 20, 2011

44 Comments

Franklin Goose is a newer company (launched in 2010, I believe). In the beginning they seemed to do all the right things to get their name out and bring in customers.  In the end (or what very well seems like their end) they’ve done all the wrong things. Cheating customers, “stealing” money and playing the […]
