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 […]

Sweet Pea Cloth Diapers Giveaway!

November 2, 2009


**Contest Closed** Congratulations, Heidi (Kylee’s mommy)! I recently had the privilege of trying out Sweet Pea One sized pocket diapers. Although the fit was not a success with Sterling, I’ve learned enough to know that what doesn’t work for me will probably work for everyone else lol! Sweet Pea OS cloth diapers will be very […]

I LOVE the New Flip Cloth Diapers!

October 30, 2009


This is not a paid endorsement. I was not given a Flip to review. As you may recall, on September 14th I posted about Cottonbabies new products: Flip and Econobums.  I went ahead and pre-ordered a Flip Day Pack: Stay-Dry with 2 packs of disposable inserts. I received my Flip pack about 2 weeks ago […]

What a Blessing!

October 25, 2009


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 […]

Recycled Wool is in Season!

October 22, 2009


If interlock and knit/crochet are too hard to get or are out of your budget there are still more options. There are tons of WAHMs that can turn an old wool sweater into the cutest pair of longies for your little one. Recycled wool longies are substantially less expensive and work just as well as […]

Don’t Forget The Smores… or the Cloth Diapers!

October 9, 2009


We just got back from our family camping trip to Garner State Park (TX), our first camping trip in our new camper.  Despite the many “speed bumps” (forgetting many necessary items, dog being sprayed by skunk, weenies rolling off into fire, evil gnats, winds that rocked camper, sleepless nights, rain) we all keep asking… Can […]

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 […]

Do you have a heart for charity?

October 2, 2009


My heart overflows with a desire to give.  I haven’t always been able to give financially, but even during tough times I give in other ways. Recently, I donated all sales of the Ultimate Guide to Cloth Diapers to Not For Crybabies.  Not For Crybabies was started by my friend Jessica and her husband Dave.  […]

3 ways to ward off cloth diaper frustration

September 26, 2009


Don’t feel bad.  Even the most die-hard, committed cloth diaper mamas reach the point of wanting to give it all up. For the most part cloth diapering is merely another task like unloading the dishwasher or setting the table.  It’s just something that is done second nature. But, there are those days when everything routine […]

Have You Seen Cotton Babies New Cloth Diapers?

September 14, 2009


Okay, I’ve always been honest with y’all so I won’t hold back.  When I first started cloth diapering I strongly disliked all things made by Cotton Babies. I know, terrible, isn’t it?! You want to know what’s worse? I had never even tried one of their products.  I completely made some crazy assumption that it […]

Do you have your Woollybottoms Footies yet?

September 6, 2009


You don’t?!  How could you not?!  Surely the leaves are starting to fall where you are. Temperatures below 100 degrees around here means wool season is fast approaching.  Most knitters’ custom lists are overflowing at this point.  Pretty much anyone who makes winter woolies of any kind (crochet, knit, interlock) are booked.  Good for them, […]

Pocket Cloth Diapers, Love Story?

August 30, 2009


I’m feeling very cinematic today.  I have a great TV that we acquired in an amazing way yet, we don’t watch TV.  I love movies but, with 4 children and no great movies coming out these days we never watch them.  So, why would I feel cinematic? Last night as I laid in bed after […]
