New to Cloth Diapers? Part 1

November 9, 2009

I remember how overwhelming it was when I first began cloth diapering. There were so many choices (and SO many more now!) and I had no idea where to start. The one thing I did know was disposable diapers are gross and I needed something else. I refused to compromise my child’s health any more […]

I received my Flip pack about 2 weeks ago […]

When I started this blog in March 2008, I had very little expectations.  My husband sets his goals high and when he started spouting off numbers I rolled my eyes and said something like “how is that possible??” Thank You! Oh, ye of little faith..he should have said.  In less than 2 years I have […]

The Diaper Sprayer is on My Never List

October 5, 2009

First, I’ll start off by saying that I am extremely easy to convince of something if your argument is good.   That being said feel free to redeem the Diaper Sprayer after I’m done ;) Why after 4 years of cloth diapering have I never purchased a diaper sprayer? Installation always looked too cumbersome. The […]
