Let’s talk diapers. It has been a while, hasn’t it? Cloth diapering all of my kids has been an interesting experience. Each baby is completely different. Each one has a system that works best for them. My son was a super eater and super soaker. I had to stuff enormous pocket diapers for him and change them every five minutes it seemed. Then Wyn came along and she barely ate ….
We are gutting our laundry room. Ripping out drywall, tearing up tile, removing wallpaper and old junk. It is a slow process. See, our laundry room is original to the house, and is in desperate need of renovation. The wiring is not up to code and the room is dysfunctional. In addition to this, our washing machine is a late seventies model in an unattractive harvest gold color. Not that ….
Gratuitous picture of Mory. Or maybe not, since she supplied the baby butt for testing. La Petite Cream c/o La Petite. As an active parent in the cloth diapering community, diaper rash, creams, and wipe solutions are topics that really dominate some of my conversations. (And it seems totally normal!) One thing new parents question when looking into cloth diapering, is baby wipes. some stick with disposable, some go with ….
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 ….
