My chunker just turned sever months old! She has been doing plenty of pushups lately, but still shows no signs of crawling soon. I don’t blame her. Getting those chubby thighs moving would be an ambitious undertaking. She is our most mellow baby yet, so I don’t see her becoming mobile too quickly. I can’t say I am not relieved by that thought. I need to magically grow another arm ….

D-E-T-E-R-G-E-N-T It has been a while since I yammered on about laundry detergent. I have five kinds sitting in my laundry room right now, and that is kind of pittily compared to what I often have going on next to my washing machine. Clearly this house move and pregnancy has destroyed my laundry mojo. Also, I moved into a house with a harvest gold washing machine from the 70′s, so ….

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. Hey cloth diapering parents! We haven’t chatted about cloth wipes in quite a while. Do you use cloth wipes? I have been using cloth wipes for diaper changes for almost four years, and I must say they are so much better for nasty diaper changes. I have tried flannel wipes, cotton wipes, hemp terry loop wipes, and more. For extra ….
*detergent c/o BALM Baby Have you ever tried soap nuts? Of course, they aren’t really soap or nuts for that matter. Soap nuts are really dried berries from trees in the Himalayas. These berries contain high levels of sapponins, providing a detergent free way of reducing water surface tension, so fabrics can release dirt and grime. You can actually use a handful of soap nuts or berries as a detergent ….
Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. What’s in a diaper cream? Does it matter? You bet it does! We research diaper brands and types, laundry detergent ingredients, fabric origins, but not diaper cream? It would be silly not to! Whether your baby is just a bit red, or has open sores, you likely care about ingredients in your diaper rash cream. Especially if your child has ….
With the popularity of cloth diapering rising more and more, there comes a huge boost in information and opinions about it as well. One area that creates much debate in the cloth diapering world is washing your diapers. With so many opinions about detergents and their ingredients, which do you use? Well, not all detergents work for all households due to water mineral content, filtering, washing machine model, load ….
I would like to talk about one of my favorite cloth diapers today. Tiny Tush is a brand that often gets ignored in the cloth world for reasons unknown to me. Perhaps because they tend to not do glitzy ad campaigns. What is great about Tiny Tush? The brand is completely made in the USA! Even the PUL (polyurethane laminate) used to make the diapers is made here. Not very ….
