Opulent Monsters Diaper Video and Review

This post may contain affiliate links. Harper loves animals so much, I really lucked out in how gentle she is with them. We’ve practiced since she was a baby, teaching her to softly touch toys and blankets long before she could really comprehend what “gentle” means. Our dog and cat are a tremendous joy to […]

Could it be? The best velcro diaper ever!

This post may contain affiliate links. I haven’t purchased a velcro/aplix/hook and loop/whatever you call it diaper in years.  Why?  Because in general- they suck.  The velcro either stops sticking after a while, curls up, or starts out so strong that it is a strong man competition to pull it open in hopes it will […]

4th Annual Flats and Handwashing Survey Results {Infographic}

This post may contain affiliate links. It has taken a while but I do have the results from the 4th Annual Flats and Handwashing Challenge.  Unsurprisingly, the data is nearly identical which shows the viability of using flat diapers in general and of handwashing.  You can refer to the results of last year here: 3rd […]

The 5 Phases of Cloth Diapering

Get Prepared for Potty Training- Should You Buy Training Pants?

This post may contain affiliate links. It’s time for your little one to start their journey to potty training!  It is both an exciting venture and stressful for all parties involved.  Some children make it easier than others and practically train themselves, others need charts, stickers, treats, and parades for each successful bathroom visit.  Regardless […]

How long should a cloth diaper last?

This post may contain affiliate links. The idea behind cloth diapering for most parents is saving money- using a diaper over and over saves way more than using throwaway diapers.  That being said, cloth diapers are great but they aren’t magic- heavy use and repeated washing and drying takes a toll and they will wear […]

The History of Wool- Mother Nature’s Diaper Cover

This post may contain affiliate links. Wool soakers are common in today’s cloth diapering wardrobe and often seen as a luxury item. The history of the soaker dates back to the mid 19th century and saw a peak in popularity and use around 1940’s.  Wool is seeing an artisanal resurgence in the 2000’s and is […]

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 […]

Pink Lemonade Luxury Mama Cloth {Giveaway!}

This post may contain affiliate links. One of the unintentional side effects of cloth diapering your baby is that you are suddenly aware of the yucky chemicals inside of all disposable hygiene.  Tampons and pads are not immune to those ingredients and now you are wondering how to avoid the same things!  For some a menstrual cup is a good plan but not everyone is comfortable with using them.  For those moms reusable mama cloth (reusable menstrual pads, you don’t HAVE to be a mom to use them!) can be the answer. You may be wondering how all this works… like cloth diapers, you will need to wash your mama cloth items.  Pink Lemonade conveniently sells reusable zippered wet bags from Planet Wise to store your dirties in between wash days and Femme Rock, a detergent designed for washing mama cloth. You can carry a small dual zippered bag to hold clean and […]

Milk or Cereal? Cloth Diapers Then vs Now

This post may contain affiliate links. During my time in the “cloth diaper industry” I’ve been witness to an explosion in new brands, new styles, new prints, new everything!  I came onto the scene just as this explosion was happening and things have only grown from there (something I can’t take any credit for).  I’ve often wondered if this growth and the limitless options parents face today has been a good thing or if it makes it harder.  Explaining the different types of diapers to my sister who just gave birth a few days ago I again realized how confusing it really is to a brand new cloth diapering parent. It’s kind of like Milk or Cereal… In the earliest days of cloth diapering up to about the 1990′s there were very few choices.  Looking at your milk section you can find just a handful of options- Whole Milk, 2%, […]

Earth Mama Products for the Beach and Mom-to-Be

This post may contain affiliate links. I am participating in the 30 Day #EarthMama Challenge with Mamavation.  I was sent these products and am being compensated for the campaign.  All opinions and reviews expressed are that of my own. Living five minutes away from the beach has its perks. I love knowing that my family is getting enough vitamin d just from playing, and proper sunscreen application has become such a routine that it isn’t even a battle, just part of the process. Spending so much time under the sun has potential for disaster, of course. Prepping my body for that bikini requires shaving which often leads to razor burn, and if I am remiss about my own sunscreen application I can get a bit of a sunburn (I’ll always have pale skin, so it’s just part of the package). Of course, baring my belly can be a bit intimidating […]

Fuzzibunz Large One Size on toddler

First Look at the New One Size Fuzzibunz- Improved Design and New Owners

This post may contain affiliate links. I’ve been keeping a secret for a very long time and it is finally time to spill the beans!  Fuzzibunz are back with new designs and a completely new manufacturing process that will greatly improve their quality.  How do I know all this?  Well… I was given a sneak peek at the new designs prior to their release and also had the chance to chat with the new owners of Fuzzibunz (CRG Icc). For those new on the cloth diapering scene, Fuzzibunz have been around a long time and are considered the first mainstream pocket diaper on the market.  They started with a fleece pocket, then started using waterproof PUL outers and fleece linings.  Their earlier diapers were sized but they later released their One Size diapers that saw several incarnations.  Most notable was the One Size Elite with a narrow pocket that changed widths a […]

7 Ways Cloth Diapering Changed My Life

This post may contain affiliate links. Without being dramatic I can absolutely say with confidence that cloth diapering changed my life!  That one decision I made while pregnant over 5 years ago has paid dividends for my family and not just because we saved a few thousand dollars over the course of diapering two children.  You’ll be surprised at how drastically my life has changed simply due to cloth diapering. 1. The most obvious change was the money savings from diapering two children.  I would estimate that after the cost of my diapers and accessories I saved $2,740 dollars!  And since my youngest still needs diapers on occasion at night we are still raking in the savings by him wearing reusable trainers instead of disposable pull-ups.  When our family was brand new we needed all the money savings we could get.  The money saved was able to go to our […]

Healthier Cleaning with Earth Mama Angel Baby

This post may contain affiliate links. I am participating in the 30 Day #EarthMama Challenge with Mamavation.  I was sent these products and am being compensated for the campaign.  All opinions and reviews expressed are that of my own. It’s amazing to think my baby will be two years old in just a couple months, almost as amazing as realizing she’ll have a sibling to help care for in that time as well. She already loves helping me with everything I do, taking great interest in things like dusting (she gets a clean dry washcloth to wipe down surfaces I’ve already dusted) and putting away her toys with me. It is such a relief to me that the cleaning products I use are non-toxic and completely safe for her to handle, while still being effective and smelling amazing. One of my current favorites is a household cleaning scrub I made […]

Registering (and getting) Cloth Diapers at a Baby Shower {Fluffin’ Awesome Tips}

This post may contain affiliate links.   How many moms have heard this?  As frustrating as it can be to have a family member or friend dismiss something that means a great deal to you, it can be even more soul crushing to have them doubt your ability to follow-through with a task.  I too was told I would quit, though no one bought disposables for my baby shower in 2008 they didn’t buy cloth diapers either.  (PS, did I show them OR WHAT?!) Today not only can you register for cloth diapers at an online retailer that specializes in the product (may I suggest Kelly’s Closet?) or you can add them to your registry at places like Babies ‘R Us, Buy Buy Baby, and Target! Is there a secret to actually getting the cloth diapers you’ve registered for?  No.  Absolutely not.  Every person and family is different.  You know […]

This post may contain affiliate links. It’s time for a new game to play at your next baby shower that doesn’t involve chocolate in diapers or sucking milk from a bottle!  Today moms are more knowledgable about baby products than ever before, thanks in part to social media and those dedicated product reviewers like the infamous BabyGuyNYC.  Not only that, but inventors are constantly trying to solve the struggles and problems parents face when raising babies.  Their resulting products can either become a new baby shower gift staple or a “what the heck were they thinking” product that makes you wonder if they ever even had a human baby!
