Thirsties New One Size All in One Diaper Video and Review

This post may contain affiliate links. It’s hard to believe my tiny girl is two years old. She’s so independent now, running around and climbing everything in sight. She loves helping with anything she sees the grown-ups do, whether it’s attempting to use a screwdriver or sweeping the floor on cleaning day. She has her mood swings like any toddler but for the most part she is thrilled just to be a part of the adventure and I count myself so lucky that she’s along for the ride. Thirsties debuted a new one size all in one diaper last month that is sleeker and more absorbent than ever. While I adore Thirsties and am a huge fan of their covers especially, I have a particular fondness for the ease and design of all in ones. These are available with either a snap closure or hook and loop tape so you […]

2009 Stash Shot- Let’s Revisit!

This post may contain affiliate links. I started cloth diapering way back in 2008… at this point that seems like an eternity ago.  I was using diapers then that in some cases no longer exist, or the earlier forms of those brands that we know today.  My stash started out very humble because we were a newly married couple, straight out of college, living in a 2 bedroom apartment upstairs in Central New York.  The closest diaper store was 2 hours away in Ithaca, NY so I mostly relied on online sales, Craigslist, and Diaperswappers to obtain my diapers.  For my newborn I used a lot of prefolds and some really terrible WAHM “all in ones” that I shudder just thinking about.  GOD those were awful!  They gave WAHM diapers a bad name in my eyes for a while until I realized it was not the norm.  I also had […]

For the stores who want to list all featured slots sold so […]

Kissing Blake Hybrid Fitted One Size Diaper Video and Review

This post may contain affiliate links. Harper loves playing outside, it’s my perfect cure for any day when she’s being especially moody or disinterested in her usual toys and activities. It’s a bit trickier to manage supervision now that her baby sister has arrived, but thanks to babywearing and a little planning ahead, I’ve been able to make our backyard adventures really special and exciting even if I do have to stay in the shade and take lots of breaks to nurse. 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 […]
