No one wants their baby to wake up with soaked sheets or for that matter soaked sheets on your bed!  Finding a cover that works best for your baby can be such a challenge though.  For many, a Thirsties cover works just fine.  Yet others require something substantially more bulletproof.

For most of you cold weather has arrived!  To a Texan like me as we reach nightly lows in the 50s I’m reaching for the longies.  Brrr…lol. Despite the fact that Paisley is a full time pocket wearer I still can’t resist the warmth and complete cute factor of a pair of longies.  Not to […]

To Wet or Dry Pail It…That Is The Question

October 18, 2008

25 Comments

I have always used a dry pail.  Even written about how I would never use a wet pail.  Until now. The stinkiness just got to be too much.  My husband and oldest daughter complained incessantly about the smell of Paisley’s diapers.  Haley (my oldest) was always calling for me to change Paisley’s “stinky pee” when […]

My love for Baby Be Blessed began when I found their website.  I am easily captivated by gorgeous websites with eyecatching graphics.  Yet even I know that a great website doesn’t equal a great product.  My next step was to buy something, anything from these Canadian WAHMs. I discovered Baby Be Blessed while doing research […]

My dear friend Leslie of Leslie’s Boutique sent me an “innocent” message the other day.  She said I just had to try the bumGenius Organic diaper out.  After Leslie had run out of diapers she resorted to grabbing one from her inventory.  Instantly she fell in love.  So of course I caved and bought one.
