  • Home Buying Tips For New Parents
    on Apr 25, 2016 in Uncategorized
    When I was pregnant with my first child, my husband and I were still living in a loft downtown. It was a great place for just the two of us – limited cleaning and maintenance, close proximity to his office, convenient access to shopping and restaur...
  • Counting Down The Days
    on Apr 15, 2016 in Uncategorized
    Green Baby Goods is an idea that has sat in the dream realm for far too long. I had always wanted to pursue a business producing eco-friendly, non-toxic, handmade baby products for the environmentally conscious parent who demands the best when it com...
  • Do You Buy Seasonal Diapers?
    on Oct 9, 2013 in Uncategorized
    Fall is in the air, and with it, the diaper makers are popping out with beautiful new ads.  This one is making fancy pumpkin diapers for Halloween—limited edition, so act fast!  That one is already displaying a special Christmas print.  Even if...

    on Sep 25, 2013 in Uncategorized
    Yay—you’re having a baby!  You’ve done your research, and you’ve decided that cloth diapering is definitely, completely, one hundred percent the way you want to go.  You want your baby to be in cloth from the day she comes home from the hos...
  • If I Could Cloth Diaper All Over Again
    on Sep 10, 2013 in Uncategorized
    If I could cloth diaper all over again…wow, what a question! I have a truly excessive cloth diaper stash, especially for just one baby (but there’s another one due in November…that makes it okay, right?). I have co-op diapers and name brand dia...

    on Aug 28, 2013 in Uncategorized
    Is there anything more exciting than getting ready for a new baby? All the adorable little goodies that you get to buy…all the cute little odds and ends that you “just can’t live without…” and then, of course, there’s the fluff. That’s...
  • When Washing Machines Self-Destruct
    on Aug 14, 2013 in Uncategorized
    They tell me I’m lucky. The transmission on the washing machine just locked up, instead of exploding engine parts and spewing oil over all of the clothes in my washer. I’ll take the “luck” for what it’s worth, since all of my maternity jean...
  • What’s in Your Diaper Bag?
    on Jul 30, 2013 in Uncategorized
    One of the hardest things for a new mom to master is packing a diaper bag. There are so many things that you use for your baby when you’re just around the house—don’t you need them when you’re out, too? And what if you run out of something im...
  • How to Keep a Toddler BusyAll right, I admit it: I’m a skeptic by nature. I explore Pinterest with an eye, not so much to what looks interesting, but to what is actually practical both of me (and my limited crafting ability) and my kids. I don’t like “kid” projects th...
  • Beginning Your Cloth Diapering Journey
    on Jul 4, 2013 in Uncategorized

  • Whipped Coconut Oil
    on Jun 19, 2013 in Uncategorized
    If you ask a board full of cloth diapering moms what to use for a rash, a good three or four of the first five answers you get are likely to be, “Coconut oil.”  It’s not just for diaper rashes, either.  Moms recommend it for everything from d...
  • Make Your Own Mosquito Trap (Pinterest Project Review)
    on Jun 3, 2013 in Uncategorized
    We have been plagued by mosquitos this year.  They’re always bad; but this particular year, they’ve been worse than ever.  My toddler goes outside, and he comes back covered from head to toe in tiny little red bites.  The big kids never stop s...
  • What’s in a (Swim) Diaper?
    on May 29, 2013 in Uncategorized
    With summer arriving, everyone’s talking about swim diapers.  “What do you use for your baby?”  “What brand is the best?”  “Where can I get one cheap?”  “How many do I really need?”  For a cloth diaper newbie, it can be quite c...
  • What Do You Do with Diapers You Don’t Use?
    on May 22, 2013 in Uncategorized
    Some moms have it easy.  They buy their diaper stash all in one place, in one fell swoop.  It’s made up of exactly one brand, with no variety other than the different colors or prints—and they tend to have duplicates of those.  Maybe it’s Th...
  • A New Print?!
    on May 16, 2013 in Uncategorized
    I had finally done it:  progressed to a point that diapers were just diapers.  I put them on the baby’s bum and moved on.  There was no more driving need to have all the diapers.  No new prints had tempted me enough to actually buy one in a whi...

    on Apr 24, 2013 in Uncategorized
    Okay.  You’ve swapped to cloth diapers—you’re being green, saving the environment and saving your family some money—go you!  However, the very idea of cloth wipes just…kind of grosses you out.  Disposable wipes are so convenient!  You s...
  • Your Baby is Green…Are You?
    on Apr 18, 2013 in Uncategorized
    Whatever your reason for swapping to cloth diapers—overall savings; saving the environment; or because they work better for your child’s sensitive skin—once you’ve taken the plunge into reusable diapers, it is impossible to entirely ignore ot...
