Lunchtime! Part 1
June 19, 2008 2:26 pm | by

Toddler Lunch of the Week:Black beansMozzarella CheeseAll Bran Crackers (or other family favorite) Once baby has tried out several kinds of foods and is getting to the “Me Do It!” stage, meals can get messier, but they can also be more fun. In an effort to sneak in a little more protein for Lily I have been putting some beans on her high chair tray while we eat lunch. At the start of the week dumped out and rinsed a can of organic black beans and put them in an easy to reach container. Lunch could hardly be easier! Her

10 Reasons I love bumGenius One Size Cloth Diapers
June 14, 2008 11:16 pm | by

1. They are easy. This is about as easy as cloth diapering can get. It is like using disposables only you never have to run to the store or worry about running out. You are just a load of laundry away from having all the diapers you need. They can be put on even a squirmy baby in a flash.. 2. They are cute. bumGenius diapers make little baby bums all rounded and smooth and pastel or bright. 3. They fit under all baby clothes. It seems today that most baby clothes are made with the expectation of slim, trim

What’s so great about wool?
May 24, 2008 10:30 pm | by

There are all kinds of diaper covers out there to keep baby’s clothes dry and the diaper mess contained. Some are very inexpensive and some are not. For those just getting started, you might wonder why someone would choose to pay over $40 for one diaper cover that needs some special care. There actually is a very good reason. Because it is wool. There are many reasons for choosing wool. It is a natural fiber, renewable, breathable, and while the care of wool diaper covers is a little pickier than most other covers, the times it needs care and attention

Colors, styles, hook and loop and snaps, basic or fancy, cloth diapering is more than just a way to catch the pee and poop.

Sleep Troubleshooting part 2
May 24, 2008 10:20 pm | by

This is part 3 in my series on baby sleep. (Part 1, Part 2) Here are some more ideas for troubleshooting your baby’s sleep. Short Naps: Those 15-20 minute naps are killers! Just when you think you FINALLY get a break the baby is up before you have fully formed a thought about how relieved you are. This takes a little work on your part but it can help to stretch out naptimes. Put your baby down for a nap as usual, but don’t go anywhere. Sit nearby where you can hear when baby starts to stir. (This is where

Sleep Troubleshooting
May 24, 2008 12:14 pm | by

In my last post I wrote about setting up good sleep habits. But while setting up good habits gives you a general framework of good sleep, there are always still problems to be had. Here are the basics of a few: Days and Nights Mixed Up: A lot of babies start out their life like this. When you are newly postpartum and exhausted it can be hard to handle. Keeping the baby in bright rooms during the day and dark rooms at night help baby’s circadian rhythm to get sorted out better. Time itself is the only other cure. Startling/Fussy

Sleep, Sweet Sleep
May 21, 2008 11:34 am | by

Almost the first thing out of anyone’s mouth when they start asking questions about someone’s baby is, “Are they sleeping through the night?” or “Is he a good sleeper?” No matter what the actual answer is, I usually just say yes and move on, I don’t really want to give everyone the play-by-play of how things are going with regards to our nighttime routines and how they may or may not be working right now. There are some people I know who have fabulous sleepers. Their children seem to sleep well from the day of birth and are easy to

Yo-yo Baby
May 16, 2008 10:30 am | by

You might have noticed that I have not been around to post much lately. I place the entire blame on my now- eight month old who is going through a few new developmental stages that make using a computer fairly difficult. And even now she is trying her best to climb all over my laptop. A couple of weeks ago she hit what we call around here the Yo-yo Stage. She had mastered crawling and sitting and was enjoying playing with toys much more. She was a much happier baby now that she could choose what to do and where

Kissaluvs Size Comparison
May 9, 2008 6:09 pm | by

Picking a kind of diaper can be a little befuddling, and once you do that you have to figure out which size to buy. Unless you buy one size diapers like bumGenius, but then you still need to experiment with the right settings. Well I am here to clear up a little confusion on that! Lily is a mildly chubby 15-16ish pounds right now. I tried on all the sizes of Kissaluvs, and was pleasantly surprised at how flexible the sizing options really are. I haven’t used the size zero on her in a couple of months, but low and
