No Ragrets Cloth Diapering- What Would You Do Differently Today?

What’s a Cloth Diaper? Animated Video for Newbies!

This post may contain affiliate links. One of the things that I have noticed lacking in the cloth diaper world is an introduction to cloth diapers that is simple, not overwhelming, and that isn’t brand specific.  Generally speaking, the only people interested in putting the time and effort into this type of thing are big […]

For weeks myself and others that I will introduce later have been working day and night on a really exciting project.  This post will answer all of your questions about it so please read on!  We have been teasing it through social media but as of yet nothing “official” with full details as been posted publicly.  Today is that day! What is this #MakeClothMainstreamChallenge?  The #MakeClothMainstreamChallenge is a lot like it sounds.  For 3 weeks we are asking you (the general public) to try out cloth diapers.  But you (the general public reading this) probably already use cloth, right?  That is where YOU (again, I am pointing my finger at the person behind the screen reading these words) come in.  If you are already using cloth diapers instead of taking the challenge we want you to recruit for it and support those who have […]

Milovia Pocket Nappy Review

This post may contain affiliate links. Having two little girls is still such a surprise to me, I was the only little girl in my family aside from a beloved cousin living on the opposite end of the coast who would visit every few years and send refrigerator size boxes of luxe hand me downs that made up basically my entire wardrobe. Autumn is still very young, but I see Harper appraising her and choosing to be gentle and kind to her every day, watching her face for reactions and bringing her toys and blankets. I know they won’t always get along so well, but Harper has always been quite particular about who receives her affections, often refusing a request for a hug or kiss or farewell and choosing to play aloof. I don’t begrudge her this personality quirk, it makes the attention she does offer that much more meaningful. […]

Tots Bots Fans Listen Up- GOOD NEWS and NEW PRINTS! (Giveaway)

This post may contain affiliate links. If you love Tots Bots (who doesn’t?) then today I am going to make you very happy!  It has been a couple of years since Tots Bots had a US distributor.  Being that Tots Bots is from the UK that was definitely a drag for retailers who had to wait longer to get their orders in.  If you tried ordering an out of stock print it could be quite a while before your favorite store had it back again!  The GREAT news is that they have one now and it is none other than the family behind the beloved store The Green Nursery! About tiny marigold: For Scott and Abby Noroozi, two American kids growing up in the heartland, it was love at first sight.  She was 18, and he was 17.

What is NEW at DDL? LOTS!

This post may contain affiliate links. Right now things are plugging along and I’ve been typing and photoshopping my fingers to the bone in order to make this blog look shiny and make the already available resources even easier for YOU to find! So that it doesn’t go unnoticed a blog post is the best way to update you on these improvements.  I’m pretty excited about them. For years I’ve been periodically updating my Cloth Diaper Video Reviews page by manually uploading a thumbnail and linking the image to the review.  The HTML in this table always looks fine but it would randomly have gaps that I could never close.  A new system is in place that will automatically add videos to the page when they’ve posted here on the blog so it will never go *cough 6 months cough* between updates again.  I’m so sorry…. I just can’t do […]

Happy Heiny ONEderful Stay Dry Review

This post may contain affiliate links. Now that Daylight Savings Time has taken effect, Harper is having a harder time falling asleep. Her once predictable bedtime routine has been tried and tested and there have been a few nights where my dear sweet husband has been left to walk with her in her carrier two or three times in a single evening while I work and Autumn dozes or rides in the stroller. I’m glad Harper falls asleep thanks to babywearing, but I know multiple walks in the Florida heat can be tiring for my husband, and hearing her pop awake back at home is stressful for everyone. Lately I’ve been trying to tire her out by playing outside in the evenings until I catch her yawning. I’d love to hear how you handle the time change and night owl toddlers.  Happy Heiny sent me one of their ONEderful diapers […]

Sloomb OBF Diaper Review

This post may contain affiliate links. Mornings always seem to be the easiest time of day for my girls. It’s a cruel joke on me because I am definitely NOT a morning person. But come sunrise they are up and excited and happy and ready to play. My usual morning routine these days involves getting Harper changed and giving her a cup of water then setting up some independent play options like Eco Dough or puzzles or paper and crayons so she can entertain herself, then putting on some soft music and changing Autumn and settling in to nurse for a while and check in with my friends on my phone. By the time Harper is ready for her morning oatmeal, Autumn is content enough to play on a blanket with some toys and I can even make myself a coffee or some yogurt and fruit. By the time Harper […]

Lily Cup Video and Review Featuring “Virginia”

This post may contain affiliate links. The Lily Cup wasn’t a brand I had heard of until their “Lily Cup Compact” hit Kickstarter. I watched the video with interest and shared their project with my readers on Facebook not knowing that soon it would go viral and blow past their initial goal. Unfortunately that product (the compact menstrual cup) didn’t work well for me. The good news is that they also sent their standard Lily Cup model for me to try and I’m glad they did because it worked great and has given me a new cup that I can recommend to other women. The embedded video is my “review” and demonstration of the Lily Cup. If you dislike watching videos I will share some key points here in the blog post along with some product photos I took and 15 second video clips using Virginia.  This is Virginia’s video […]
