The Importance of Rinsing

October 19, 2010


It seems too easy to say rinse, rinse, rinse.  But, most of the time that is the solution.

Most recently my Bum Genius Elementals smelled terrible every […]

My #1 Pregnancy Must Have

September 18, 2010


Nope, this post will have nothing to do with cloth diapers. It’s all about the mama this time. A week ago my husband and I were watching The Back-up Plan (tons of “s” words, terribly stereotypically and a hilariously inaccurate portrayal of homebirth).  If you’ve seen it you know that the body pillow is a […]
