While you are working on your contest entry…

While you are working on your contest entry, like this post and then tell us what you’re doing for Mother’s Day! I’m going to give away one bumGenius One-Size Organic All-In-One to random commenters all weekend! I’ll start… for Mother’s Day, my mom and dad are going to be visiting us. I’m sitting in the basement next to the bed they will be sleeping in. As I type this, I’m realizing that I can’t remember the last time that I spent Mother’s Day with my mom. It might have been the year that I left home (and I was 17).

How much waste does a baby wearing disposable diapers really generate?
April 28, 2010 3:03 pm | by

Cotton Babies has long been frustrated by the lack of information available about how each baby wearing disposable diapers impacts landfills. We are working on a project to collect data about how much used disposable diapers weigh. The goal of this project is to estimate the approximate weight of the waste generated from a child wearing disposable diapers full time.  To participate, please have your baby wear one disposable diaper for a normal length of time (as you define it). At the next diaper change, please weigh that disposable diaper.  You can submit the information about that diaper using this

Good Moms
April 12, 2010 12:10 pm | by

As I watched the comments flowing in on my post about why all moms should be treated with respect, I was overwhelmed by just how many of you have been so deeply impacted by people or companies who questioned your ability to be a good mom – or tied being a good mom to the use of a particular behavior or type of product.   There are hundreds of readers here. So share your stories, mommas.   I’ll start… I’ve had many supportive women in my life over the last seven years of being a mom. One of those women

Things I learn about cloth diapers – while traveling internationally
April 1, 2010 10:17 am | by

I’ve done quite a bit of traveling for business. Everywhere I go, I look for cloth diapers and how other cultures handle diaper care. Diaper care is an important issue in other parts of the world too, so I’m just as interested in what people put on their baby’s bottom as I am in how they take care of it after it’s dirty. In every bathroom, in every country, I notice the toilet design, what’s on the wall, whether or not there is toilet paper, how many years it might have been since the toilet was cleaned… (you get the

All moms deserve to be treated with respect.
February 17, 2010 7:25 pm | by

All moms deserve to be treated with respect. I’ll say it again, maybe a little louder this time. All moms deserve to be treated with respect. We all know that there are really bad moms out there. I’m not writing about those moms.   I’m writing about the moms we are all friends with – the ones who really, truly, want to do a good job taking care of their baby. I’m writing about you. You deserve to know that you are a good mom.   Over the last seven years, I’ve found myself in an interesting position with the

Sizing Flip…
October 28, 2009 10:15 pm | by

Sizing the Flip One-Size Cloth Diaper System is simple – just adjust the front of the cover using the 3×3 snap arrangement on the front of the cover.   The bottom row of snaps is for the small setting. The middle row of snaps is for a medium and fully unsnapped, your cover is sized for a large.   Children change in shape as they grow. You’ll probably find yourself unsnapping to either accommodate your baby’s higher rise or enlarging thighs. So your six-month-old may need to be fully unsnapped to accommodate chunky thighs. But your eighteen-month-old may be back

More about Flip disposable inserts…
October 24, 2009 2:01 pm | by

We’ve had a lot of requests for more information about the ingredients of Flip disposable inserts. We’d requested some very specific information from the factory and late last week, finally received everything you were asking for. As most parents know, many companies that manufacture disposable products do not disclose the exact composition of those products. We know that you care about what goes on your baby’s bottom though (so do we)! Flip One-Size Disposable Inserts are easy to use, dye-free and fragrance-free. Perfect for travel, daycare and those moments when practical life demands something disposable. Each package contains 18 inserts,

The Flip One-Size Cloth Diaper System
October 21, 2009 7:15 pm | by

Elsie wasn’t feeling very well today, but she had a few minutes where she was a little more chipper so we went outside and snapped a few photos of her wearing her Flip One-Size Cloth Diapers. In the photo above, she is still wearing her overnight diaper. It was stuffed with a Flip: Stay Dry Insert and a Flip: Disposable Insert. Elsie is learning to crawl… she was kind enough to start exploring a crack in the concrete so I could take this shot of her little bottom showing off the design of Flip’s leg casings. We worked with several
