It’s officially Fall!!! While, for a vast majority of us, it’ll take awhile before the leaves start falling, there’s nothing like the visual of deep, rich colors and the crunch of fallen leaves underfoot. It’s practically why pumpkin spice lattes were invented (or so I assume).
To go along with my favorite season, I present Exhibit A – the Thirsties print, Fallen Leaves. While I love the entire Woodland collection, there’s just something whimsical and fun and, well, all the awesome parts of autumn rolled into a diaper style.
See what I mean? Fun and inspirational and colorful (not to mention absorbent! #teamNAIO).
So, I thought it’d be fun to do a quick round-up as a shout-out to one of the coolest (and most autumnal) prints of all things leaf-related. I fully plan on doing a couple with my kiddos once the leaves actually start drifting to the ground.

Watching those folks who #buyallthediapers. Hearing the somewhat competitive conversations between fellow cloth diaperers about their hand sewn cloth wipes and homemade wipe solutions. Thinking that you can’t participate in the #makeclothmainstream challenge because your child only sports cloth at certain times of the day or week.
I get it…100%. Because, y’know what? I’m with you. I’m a part-timer.
I never ended up taking the extra steps to ask my mother-in-law to deal with our cloth diapers when she babysits during the week. There are a few reasons (a huge one being that she washes the kids’ clothes every time they get changed rather than sending them home and I hated to get nitpicky about the wash routine), but overall it … Read More
