This post may contain affiliate links.

Líllébaby, Tula, and Beco Toddler SSC Carriers- Comparisons

This post may contain affiliate links.   I thought my babywearing, diapering, breastfeeding days were completely over.  My “baby” was almost 5, out of diapers, no longer nursing, and had stopped letting me carry him years ago.  The last bit of “baby” I had from him was that he still crept into bed with me […]

No-Sew Elf on the Shelf Hack {Video}

This post may contain affiliate links. In 2012 I had a thought- why not add bendable wires to the inside of my Elf on the Shelf?!  I had so many fun ideas for him but quite frankly, he wasn’t up to the task with his wimpy body.  Not long after that he was hacked, I […]

The Best Fitted Diapers- A List

This post may contain affiliate links. Fitteds hold a weird spot in the cloth diaper world- not quite a ready-to-wear diaper, not quite a cheap prefold.  They confuse all newbies because they often LOOK just like a waterproof diaper (many caregivers have found out they aren’t waterproof the hard way) and some of their price […]

ABC Kids Expo 2015 WAS AMAZING- Recap

This post may contain affiliate links. 2015’s ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas was incredible.  Not because it had better new products than previous years, or because it had more free booze at the booths- it was because I was reminded of how amazing this cloth diaper community is.  There were great new prints, awesome […]

Studio Ghibli Inspired Cloth Diapers

Creative Photo Ideas for Fall Babies

This post may contain affiliate links. Even though it’s hot out now Fall is already creeping up.  I know this because Target has their back to school section ramped up and Michaels has pulled out their orange and yellow artificial flower arrangements.

On #MakeClothMainstream, the History as told by Jen Aprea

This post may contain affiliate links. What started out as a little hashtag to promote Spray Pal’s business (and cloth diapering at large) during an Intuit Superbowl Commercial Contest in 2013 has turned into one of the most popular cloth diapering mantras of all time. I’ve been thinking about the phrase, and how it’s grown […]

A Big Boy Room for Two Featuring Mario, Minecraft, and Lego!

This post may contain affiliate links. When I was little we lived in a 2 bedroom trailer and so of course, I slept in the same room with my older sister.  Not only that, but we shared a queen sized canopy bed that I had begged for.  It was frilly and had pink ruffled layers […]

Peenut by Tots Bots {Giveaway}

This post may contain affiliate links. Earlier today Lara introduced you to the relatively new system from a DDL Favorite- Tots Bots!  From what I read the Peenut system has won Lara over and I’m guessing it will be in heavy rotation from now on!  It’s been on US shelves since October 2015. To learn more about the Peenut here is a great description from The Green Nursery’s blog post: “The PeeNut couldn’t be easier to use… no pocket, no stuffing, just snap in a pad and go! Unlike the Stretchy Wrap, which the PeeNut wrap is replacing, the inside of this wrap is wipeable. When it’s time for a change, wipe it down if needed, then pop in a new pad and reuse the wrap.  The 3-in-1 PeeNut pad is made up of two pads, a light and medium pad, made from gorgeously soft bamboo with a touch of microfiber […]

Peenut from Tots Bots Cloth Nappy System Review

This post may contain affiliate links. On the 10th I celebrated my 32nd birthday, and while I didn’t do anything too out of the ordinary my husband was able to take a vacation day so we could spend the entire afternoon together. Before I started my shift that evening, my husband even put together a fire in the bowl in the backyard and let Harper stay up late to make S’mores with us. It was a really fun and low key way to mark the anniversary of another year, and I’m glad we didn’t try to go too crazy considering how many other projects and deadlines I had on my plate. How do you celebrate grown up birthdays in your house? Do you like to spend time together as a family or get a little personal pampering time? What would you say was your favorite birthday? Today I’m so thrilled […]

No-Sew Elf on the Shelf Hack {Video}

This post may contain affiliate links. In 2012 I had a thought- why not add bendable wires to the inside of my Elf on the Shelf?!  I had so many fun ideas for him but quite frankly, he wasn’t up to the task with his wimpy body.  Not long after that he was hacked, I blogged it,  and the tutorial went on to become a HUGE Internet sensation! In 2015 I decided (after the prodding of a friend) it was about time I made a video of this hack.  I did that and more- finding a way to put in the same, thick gauge wire that should last for many years of fun, but without the sewing!  If you haven’t hacked your Elf yet then you’re in for a treat- this method works for anyone and there is no need for a needle and thread! You Will Need: Elf on the […]

A great list of the best fitted cloth diapers on the market- I need to try them all!

The Best Fitted Diapers- A List

This post may contain affiliate links. Fitteds hold a weird spot in the cloth diaper world- not quite a ready-to-wear diaper, not quite a cheap prefold.  They confuse all newbies because they often LOOK just like a waterproof diaper (many caregivers have found out they aren’t waterproof the hard way) and some of their price tags can be enough to scare parents away. I decided to pull together a list of my favorite fitteds for every situation and price point.  The fact is I LOVE fitteds and you should too.  Having 2-3 in your stash can be just what the doctor ordered for overnight or for use when your little one has a rash.  A fitted without a cover is a good way to air out those tushies without leaving puddles on your rug.  If you don’t see your favorite fitted here or want to see what other fitteds exist […]

HumBird Wool Cover Review

This post may contain affiliate links. Autumn just loves playing outside when the weather is nice. I love that I can create a safe haven for her and let her explore while I do yardwork or sip my coffee at a table nearby. Even if she’s overtired or teething I can count on the great outdoors to pacify her when nothing else will do. I think in reaction to this a lot of the items I’ve been coveting for her lately are outdoor friendly. Harper takes great pleasure in showing her how to play with these large and usually brightly colored play structures, and I love that there is active creative and imaginative play with no screen time. How do your littles love to unwind? I’m often asked what we use for cloth diapering at night and on long errands or drives when it might not be easy to change […]

The Great American Teach-In “Cloth Diaper Laundry” Session

This post may contain affiliate links. Each year my son’s school holds The Great American Teach-In event- it’s the new PC version of “Career Day” since it also allows parents/caregivers without employment to attend and share about their hobbies too. I know that kids love when the firefighters/policemen/doctors come in to explain their exciting jobs but I decided I should go and talk about my volunteer work for the non-profit Giving Diapers, Giving Hope. I was a little nervous- kids can be BRUTALLY honest and pull no punches. If they were bored during my session they wouldn’t be afraid to shout it out. I was preparing myself for the worst but hoping the kids took it easy on me. I was presenting to more than my just son’s class- I was traveling to other rooms and they packed in two classes to each. The day before I went through my […]

Bottombumpers One Size diagram

Bottombumpers Diaper Video and Review

This post may contain affiliate links. My girls love drawing together, or I guess I could clarify Harper loves to draw and Autumn loves to scribble, but she’s getting there. I adore seeing the spark of joy on their faces when crayon touches paper and a new idea is expressed. Now that Autumn is less inclined to put everything in her mouth, they can spend a lot more time playing and creating together, and I love seeing what they come up with. Today I’m posting an updated review on Bottombumpers, these were reviewed by Kim in 2010 when they first released, but five years later we are ready to post a new video for each (1 video of the One Size and 1 video of the sized) and share a few updates as well as my own personal experience with them.  The review reflects using both the sized and one […]
