Raise your hand if you were cloth diapered as a baby.
I was born in 1982 and, yup, I was cloth diapered in the traditional “flats-and-prefolds-and-safety pins-and-rubber pants” sort of way. It could have been because we had very little money. It could have been simply because my mother was an economical fiend (in a good way). It could have been because it was how my mother was taught to do things. It also might have been because I was the last of four and my mother wasn’t about to change up her system at that point.
Back then, it wasn’t a hip trend to CD since the only diaper color available, as far as I know, was, um, white. (I still have an affinity for a cute, white-fluffed bum.) Although, seriously, haven’t they come a long way? It wasn’t really done to save the planet, either, … Read More
We are thrilled to introduce the following new products.
Newborn All in One with Hook & Loop Closures
Your favorite Newborn diaper is now available in hook & loop closures with the same style, fit and convenience as our popular snap version (minus the umbilical cord snap down)! Designed with the needs and comfort of a new baby in mind, with an adjustable rise that provides a custom fit for babies (5-14 lbs). The soaker is sewn in on one side (at the top of the diaper), which makes adding extra absorbent layers a cinch and tremendously decreases drying time. You will enjoy the sleekness and simplicity of this diaper in the new hook and loop version.

As I mentioned in my post last week, we’re expecting our second little one this November and we’re all super excited. Yup, even our son! As a second-timer, I can’t help but think about those popular commercials, memes and articles touting the (seemingly ridiculous) differences between first-time parenting “novices” and been-there-done-that “experts.” I don’t necessarily buy into the idea; some are naturals from the start, some have a challenging child the second/third/fourth time around — different strokes for different folks.
It has been clear, though, how different the pregnancy side of things can be this second time around. Today, I’m sharing some of my observations harboring a baby bump this time. Let’s see if any of you practiced mamas out there agree!
– It feels like it’s going faster. A lot faster. It could be because life has just picked up speed since having a little guy, anyway, but … Read More
