Genius Harper

This week for Truly Genius Tuesday, we’re talking about a Genius Series diaper print that has definitely been an “HTF” (hard to find) cloth diaper: the elusive genius Harper. Cotton Babies designed this Genius Series print in partnership with one of our bumGenius retailers, Abby’s Lane, for an exclusive release in November 2014. About a year ago, we moved cloth diaper production to our headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri. During the move, we discovered a very small amount of leftover Harper fabric. The Genius Series Harper print was featured in  Cotton Babies Mob-famous photo Jennifer Labit posted: a pallet of remnant material. We had

Self care is super important, but unfortunately many moms forget how important it is. We need to take some time for ourselves to recharge our batteries and take care of us. How are we supposed to take care of our little ones to our full potential if we’re only half-charged? Here are my a few tips to making time for you! Wake up a littler earlier. I know this is super hard – especially if you’re still waking up in the middle of the night with the baby. I’ll admit – I don’t wake up early very often because I

Forgiving yourself when breastfeeding doesn’t go as planned  This one really hits home for me. I didn’t breastfeed my first two babies long because I didn’t know enough about it. When I told my pediatrician that my daughter would nurse for 45 minutes at a time, he was worried. When she didn’t immediately gain her birth

What if you planned something for months only for it to fall through? Or you spent weeks researching and reading about something only to fail? Both are bound to make you upset and maybe even question yourself a little. Now imagine that those two things that didn’t go as planned were you birth and breastfeeding journeys.
