A lucky DDL reader will receive 3 prizes from Smart Bottoms as part of DDL’s 30.30.30. event but you’ll need to enter the giveaway on January 25th so don’t forget!. Already we have announced two great prize packages from Molly’s Suds and Super Undies, now we are closing the day with Smart Bottoms. I’m really excited to see how this company has grown through the years, their products have improved with each new version and their current 3.1 One Size is the best version yet. They’ve added a great newborn diaper to their line-up and have introduced awesome new custom prints. I’m sure 2015 will be an even more exciting year for the company.

Super Undies will be giving one DDL reader 3 prizes so if you’re on the verge of potty training cross your fingers and toes that you win this one! Super Undies are makers of those terrific colorful training pants, hybrid pants, and overnight bedwetting pants. I’m not going to lie, my youngest sleeps in Super Undies most nights and we are so glad to have them because washing sheets 3-4 times a week is not my idea of fun. 4 year olds don’t love wearing a diaper but they don’t mind the fun pull-up style of these. For prizes I have a Hybrid set, a pull-on potty training pant, and a cotton nighttime undie. I’m sure that the winner will be thrilled and even just 3 trainers can be plenty for older toddlers […]

Especially when, unlike Christmas, you can use most of it all year round! That’s why I went searching for a few of great Valentine’s Day themed cloth diapers. Some are no longer available for purchase right now but this post is meant to inspire you so perhaps you seek out and find another diaper in time for the big day. This limited edition Moraki is only available through select retailers but it will sell out fast. You can find it on Kelly’s Closet and get added to the waitlist for when it arrives. Any Hello Kitty fans? Little Fancy Pants always has the best prints. Though they only made a small batch of these you can find other, just as adorable diapers on their […]

When Autumn arrived that routine definitely took a hit. I still try to make sure Harper’s oatmeal is cooked around the same time, but there are days I’ll wait for her to request it, which may not be until nearly noon. Coloring becomes more of an independent activity then a shared one. And quiet hasn’t been a member of this household for a few months, we just have to address each issue as it comes up as best we can. Still, Harper adores Autumn so much and is so eager to help whenever she can. I’m so glad she has been incredibly accepting of these changes and while she’s on a nap strike she doesn’t […]

Picture it… you’re laying on your comfortable couch after having just washed a load of dishes and vacuuming up a bunch of cashews because suddenly your kids are obsessed with them and you are finding them everywhere. Then your little person calls out “Mom I’m thirsty.” You wonder… did you leave a water cup on the counter for him? No you didn’t. That means you have to get up and grab a cup of water. Since this is a summary of nearly every day at my house I’m STOKED for Puj’s new Phillup. I was able to get an early look while at ABC Kids Expo back in September and it was one of the products I have been looking forward to most! If you’re wondering where you’ve heard the name Puj they make that handy sink bathtub that folds up. The concept […]

The diaper fit right up to the 14 pound mark which aligned perfectly with what TushMate’s weight range. You can look back at her review and watch the video demo in our earlier post. As a newborn all in one and from my experience in the diapering world it is quite unique and designed so well that it won DDL’s Favorite Newborn of 2014! It has an adjustable rise, a semi-attached liner and insert, soft and strong hook and loop, and it comes with an extra microfiber booster for any babies who need extra absorbency. It’s a great package! Now I get to give one away to a lucky expecting mama or to the mom who enters to make sure she has an awesome baby shower […]

LG let the public see their new LG Twin Wash System at CES in Las Vegas recently and once you find out the little secret it is hiding you might think- well that is the perfect washing machine for cloth diapering! The International Consumer Electronics Show is where you can find the tech of the near future and get a glimpse of what will be entering the market. From the front view the washer just appears like a very high end front loader, but in the drawer beneath there is a second, smaller washing machine! Yes! .@LGUS shows off a new mini washer inside another washer. It is backward compatible with other LG washers. #CES2015 pic.twitter.com/uu5C55KFVA — International CES […]
