Hushamok Dream Hammock Review

This post may contain affiliate links. When adults notice I have an infant one of their first questions is nearly always “How does she sleep?” Any new parent who has struggled with the demands of a newborn will want to answer this question in a number of ways, none of which are considered polite in modern society. The fact is, most new babies do not sleep very long or very well, and if you’re a lucky parent of one who does, well, go enjoy your nap or your Sudoku, I don’t want to talk to you right now. Harper was a miserable sleeper. Throughout the first months of her life I was a bleary eyed zombie, she would never sleep more than 45 minutes maximum and even that precious block of time was only if all her preferences were being addressed. This led to a vicious and stressful cycle and […]

Lily Cup, Diva Cup, and Lily Cup Compact

Lily Cup Compact Review (The Collapsible Menstrual Cup)

This post may contain affiliate links. The Lily Cup Compact has gone about as viral as a menstrual cup can- it was featured in news stories, posted to major news websites, raised way over their asking amount via Kickstarter, and got the world interested in menstrual cups! That’s always a good thing in my book. Why did it get so much attention? Because it took the menstrual cup, something that’s been around for more than a hundred years, and reinvented it. The Lily Cup Compact does what the name says- it collapses and fits into a small clamshell plastic case that’s not much larger than a tin of lip balm. The collapsible cup works much like those collapsing colanders you may already own that save space in your cabinets. It folds into itself and unfolds for use. The idea is novel, sure, and it got a lot of attention, but does it […]

Smart Bottoms Born Smart Organic Newborn Diaper Video and Review

This post may contain affiliate links. Autumn is so different from her sister, it’s hard not to compare. She was born over a pound heavier and while Harper has always remained rather petite, Autumn already seems to be gaining steadily and rapidly. Clothes Harper was wearing at six months are already a good fit on her sister, and I’ve had to retire most of her newborn size clothing. It’s possible this may just be a very long growth spurt, but I am very curious to see if her rate of growth continues. Smart Bottoms sent me an organic cotton diaper for newborns called Born Smart to review for you, and Autumn was all too happy to help. These diapers are a wonderful option when one size choices are generally too big or too bulky for your new addition. The Born Smart newborn diaper appears to be an all in one […]

Early Hybrid Cloth Diaper 1950's

Playtex Dryper- World’s First Hybrid Diaper 1950′s {History of Cloth Diapers}

This post may contain affiliate links.   The hybrid diaper system- a diaper that has a washable cover and can be used with washable or disposable inserts- really gained popularity with the gDiapers system that began being sold in 2004 (gDiapers was based on a Tasmanian based brand founded in 1990 called Eenee so it wasn’t the first modern hybrid, just the first to hit the states).  In fact, the gDiaper was what first piqued my own curiosity about cloth when I learned there was a “middle path” though I never fully invested in that system or used it.  The concept is great isn’t it?  You can pick and choose when cloth works for you, often at home, and choose to use disposable inserts when you are out of the home or on vacation.  Did you know there was a much earlier hybrid diaper on the market long before gDiapers were sold?

That Time I Lost Our Elf on the Shelf

This post may contain affiliate links. “Mom, where is Wyatt?” my 6 year old asked as he started combing our home.  “He’s not in my room, maybe he is hiding in the kitchen!” “He must be hiding really, really well….. maybe take a break and finish watching the movie we stopped Friday night and we can look more later.” Crap crap crap crap crap.  I had been putting off bringing our elf out this year far later than our usual date of Thanksgiving night and suddenly my 6 year old was convinced he was already hiding.  Simple fix though, my tactic to distract he and his brother with a movie worked.  I snuck into my office and typed up a note in my fancy machine (worth every penny and then some so far!) then let it write it in pen using a much more legible script than my own. After […]

Orange Diaper Co Loops Fitted Diaper Review

This post may contain affiliate links. Adjusting to life with two babies is such a wake up call. Life becomes a carefully balanced dance of responsibilities, and “nap when the baby naps” becomes even more impossible with a two year old asking you to color or make oatmeal or push her on the swing. For the first six weeks we settled into a haphazard routine with my husband spending more time with Harper as I nursed Autumn nearly every waking moment. Now that my painfully short maternity leave has come to an end, I’m back to work five nights a week, and my husband is left to manage both girls. If he can get Harper to sleep and she doesn’t wake up, he only has Autumn to soothe, but that’s a big “if” and even one baby is no walk in the park when you have a limited supply of […]

Happy 6th Birthday Fletcher!

Happy 6th Birthday Fletcher!

This post may contain affiliate links. The little baby who tested out cloth diapers back when this website first started is now a Kindergartener with two missing teeth!  He can read, write, beat me at Mario Cart, and has his own sparkling personality.  I used to think that this day would never come.  Not because I doubted he would make it that long (though can I get a high five for keeping a human being alive for 6 years?!  Parenting is hard yo) but because the days were looooooooong.  In his infancy my nipples didn’t think we would make it to say 5.  6 years seemed like an eternity away and yet here we are. This kid makes everything better- he’s my comic relief, my helper, and my new gaming buddy. This year I have been doing even more of a juggling act than usual near his birthday and so […]
