Well, we just had the one month pediatrician appointment for baby E, and all is well. He has gained back the weight he lost as well as an additional pound. Which means he is still a full pound lighter than Mory was AT BIRTH!! He is long and skinny, whereas she is short and chubby so they are growing into polar opposites just like the first two kids. So much for reusing all of the baby clothes. However, we can still reuse much of our cloth diaper stash!

Some of our one size cloth diapers really work better on one body type over another, but our Buttons Diapers have done pretty well on all of the kids so far.

Buttons Diapers are an all-in-two diapering system with snap-in inserts.

Buttons All-In-Two diapers features:

  • One size fits most
  • Two row snap down rise
  • Strong snap closures
  • Dual Leg gussets
  • Dual front and back snaps for secure inserts
  • Soft and comfortable fleece topped insert
  • Optional night time insert that snaps under day insert

Buttons Diapers offer two different sizes of insert, making them a little more ‘one size’ than some other diaper options. The small size generally fits babies 9-20 pounds and the large is designed for 20-35 pounds. There are also night time inserts and doublers available for long naps, older babies and over night.

Despite his skinny legs and being slightly under the recommended weight, Ethan fits into the buttons diapers pretty well on the smallest setting. The gussets work fairly well even with some loose fabric at the thighs. We have not dealt with any blowouts with this little guy.

All-in-twos like Buttons Diapers are convenient and trim enough to be a great travel cloth diaper. They fit well under clothing and don’t take up too much space in your diaper bag.  They are also an economical alternative to disposables. Buttons diapers covers are $11.00 for solid colors and $12.50 for prints. the microfiber inserts are $10.50 for a three pack and the hemp/cotton inserts are $23.25 per three pack. All in all, Buttons All-in-twos are one of the more economical all-in-two cloth diapers available.

We still have our four year old, Wyn, wearing these diapers as an overnight trainer. I kind of want to sell off a large part of our diaper stash and get more all-in-twos. I’m really over stuffing and folding these days. I think that might just be normal once you have what is officially a large family. The laundry situation has gotten complicated folks! And goodness knows that by the time I have enough money saved to fix the laundry room, all kids will be out of diapers. So, I am really fantasizing about streamlining the stash.

Relaxing Simplicity & Burt’s Bees Baby Essentials

Having a new baby is a funny thing. People often go back and forth about how draining and stressful the newborn phase can be. I have to agree that the sleep deprivation, lack of time, lack of energy and the emotional exhaustion are very real. The other day it occurred to me I had not eaten in three days. Meals are usually too much effort! The reality of caring for ….

We Had Our Baby!

We Had Our Baby!

Two weeks ago.  I had a repeat cesarean two weeks ago, but life has been crazy with lots of kids and recovery and leaky boobs, so I didn’t get to my computer until today. So here is an untouched picture from my cell phone. Because I also couldn’t be bothered to use my real camera. His name does not have a nickname. It is one of those that cannot really ….

It is crunch time! At the moment this post goes live, I will be in the OR having a cesarean.  Unless of course I very suddenly went into labor right before and didn’t have time to quick come edit this. Haha. I really, really, wanted a beautiful nursery. And it is quite nice actually. I just need some different artwork on the walls. Something bigger and more dramatic maybe.  If ….

Chow Mein Stir Fry with Pea Pods, Carrots & Shirataki ‘Rice’

When I was a little giril, my mother went to this dingey take out joint for chop suey chow main on occasion. I’m sure it was about as authentic as chow mein in Saint Paul in 1982 could be.  Although, it was nothing like what I see in take out places now. My mother even actuually came up with what she called chow mein hotdish, because you know, Minnesota.  It ….

Baby Room Update: Dresser Makeover & Elephant Art

This is only a small update, but I thought I would share. I have a bunch of stuff coming in the mail to add to the nursery. I have a scheduled cesarean in 10 days if I don’t go into labor before then for a VBAC, Nothing like the last minute, huh? I took the black vintage dresser from the girl’s old room and re-purposed it in the nursery. This ….

A Mini Makeover for Our Family Room & Basement Bathroom

A Mini Makeover for Our Family Room & Basement Bathroom

I wish I could show you just how awful our basement stairwell, family room, and hallway were. The pictures are too dark to do it justice. Wood paneling, nursing home inspired wallpaper, and so many shades of green that were very in during the late ’80s. After weeks of removing wallpaper, sanding walls, skim-coating with joint compound, more sanding, priming, and painting, I solved the wallpaper problem. It was almost ….

Boy Bedroom Before & After

Remember the new boy room that was part of ‘phase one’ of the basement renovation? Well it is complete. Or rather, as complete as it will get right now. I need to focus on getting the nursery set up and making sure this baby has a place to sleep and some clothes to wear. And I keep getting distracted by things like, my urge to repaint all of the bathrooms. ….
