Today I’m sharing a review on Kissing Blake, they offer a wide variety of quality and hard to find prints as well as custom embroidered diapers at a variety of price points. I tried out a diaper called Mermaid, a one size hybrid fitted with a shimmery swimsuit fabric outer that sparkles in the sun.  For the video the diaper shown for the first portion is their Extended […]

10 Pro-Tips for Menstrual Cup Users {Video}

This post may contain affiliate links. Most posts or videos about menstrual cups aim to answer questions like “what are the benefits of menstrual cups?” and “how often should I change it?” but who is brave enough to answer the “Will the menstrual cup slip down while I poop?” and  “what if I can’t get it in, can I use lube?” questions. Well- I’m answering those and 8 other commonly asked questions about menstrual cups in the form of some Pro-Tips I’ve picked up from my experience so far with the cup.  My favorite tip is “Use a handicapped stall if you need to empty your cup when in public” because it seems obvious but some people might forget that most stalls have sinks in them! The video is short and to the point- even if you’ve been using the cup for years you might learn something- and if you’re […]

Reusable Menstrual Cloth- What you need to know

This post may contain affiliate links. The average woman menstruates around over 2,500 or more days of her life!  This can create close to 11,000 tampons or disposable pads!  That is an incredible amount of waste.  Perhaps you’ve already switched to cloth diapers and now you’re thinking of your own well being and your contribution to the landfills.  ”Mama cloth” or reusable pads might not be as “out there” as you first thought! Reusable menstrual pads come in all shapes, materials, and sizes.  Luckily, it’s still easy to find what will work best for you- most brands use familiar terminology such as “liners” or “light days” for panty liners, “regular,” “Heavy,” and “Post-Partum.”  The liners above are from Pink Lemonade Shop. The absorbency in reusable pads is often cotton though some may use bamboo or other fibers.  The lining next to your skin is usually also cotton, minky, flannel, or […]

Daddy & Co. Diaper Bag Review (AKA Go Gaga Diaper Bag)

This post may contain affiliate links. Once upon a time I was browsing a local diaper shop and came across a diaper bag that I instantly fell in love with.  Diaper Lab, local to the Boston area where I was vacationing, had the Go Gaga diaper bag that had this unique and very smart strap that used fabric the same way a ring sling does or a wrap- the fabric spreads out and this distributes the weight more evenly- genius! Sadly that company stopped producing bags but the great news is that Daddy&Co. has brought it back!  New company but the bag itself is the same design and it has a new name- Daddy Diaper Packs.  I will admit this video and post are soooo overdue!  Forgive me for the late posting but I’m still so excited to share this great bag with you. The Daddy&Co bags come in two […]

This post may contain affiliate links. In usual DDL style lately I’m not ready to publish the video for the new Thirsties AIO (quality takes time dahlings) but I do have a few photographs to share and a giveaway for you until that review/video is up and running.  My whole life is one big long to-do list lately so I’m really sorry for not being on the ball with these new releases already!

HUGE Wool Dryer Balls Giveaway from Smart Sheep- 4 winners!

This post may contain affiliate links. Even if you don’t cloth diaper anymore or haven’t started just yet you will want to enter this giveaway from Smart Sheep!  Why?  Because you can use wool dryer balls on all your clothing and linens to expedite their drying time and soften your clothes naturally without dryer sheets or fabric softeners.  Smart Sheep sells extra large 100% Premium New Zealand Wool Dryer Balls with no fillers.  The jury is still out on whether bigger is better but IMO from using several brands I do like the larger dryer balls best and grab those bigger balls first. Benefits of using wool dryer balls include shortening dryer time (use 3 balls for small/med load, 5-6 for large) and Smart Sheep dryer balls last a thousand-plus loads so even though it may seem like a large investment you won’t need to re-buy them anytime soon.  Well, you might […]
