Lottie Life Nursing Apparel for Active Moms

Lottie Life nursing apparel for active moms.

Wardrobe Challenges As a mom who has breastfed 2 kids, I can attest that finding great nursing apparel can be a struggle. Sure, you can do the two-shirt method where you wear a nursing tank under a regular shirt and pull up the regular shirt to nurse. The tank keeps your tummy covered. Or you can continue wearing maternity clothes, which isn’t always great for your self-esteem. When I have found actual nursing pieces I like, I’ve been known to buy in several colors. If it works, I have no problem investing in great pieces because I know I am

Happy Father's Day to all the great Dads!

I know a lot of moms use online forums to complain about the fathers of their children and their shortcomings, especially on Father’s Day. This is not one of those posts. While I, at times, get annoyed by my significant other, surely he feels the same about me and my neuroses. This post is about my favorite qualities in my husband as a father to our kids. I think these traits are universally good traits for Dads to possess. He always makes them smile. Whether it’s funny voices, actively playing or just being silly, it warms my heart when I

 
Cloth Diapers Coming to Walmart

Make cloth diapers mainstream! Look for cloth diapers in Walmart in 2019.

We have exciting news! As many of you know we released Elemental Joy in the Fall of 2017. We know that diapers are expensive. Many families struggle to feed their family and buy diapers. If a family wants to use cloth diapers, cost shouldn’t be an obstacle. Our heart is to make cloth diapers accessible to as many people as possible. We know little changes make a big difference. Walmart Open Call This week Jenn attended some meetings at Walmart’s 5th Annual Open Call at their headquarters in Bentonville, AR. Earlier today, we were informed that we are one step closer

 
Don’t Throw It Out! How to Use More of the Food You Have

Ideas for what to do with the food you have. Don't throw it away!

Most families throw out a lot of food. We’re busy. Time slips away and all the sudden you’ve got a fridge full of mystery food. If you’re not a meal planning/prepping kind of parent you may have a bunch of random items that you got a great deal on but have no idea what to do with them. Here are some simple ways I make the most out of the food we buy. 1. Freeze it. Target had bacon on clearance a few days ago. BACON. Sure, it expired in less than a week but that’s what the freezer is

12 Ways Your Phone Can Make Your Life Easier
May 25, 2018 1:57 pm | by

If I could add any capability to my phone I would add a remote, Swiss Army knife and a thermometer. If you’ve ever had a sleeping baby on your chest and just wanted to change the channel, you understand the remote thing. If you’ve ever had a sick child sleeping on your chest and the thermometer was just out of reach, you understand that one too. And, well, a Swiss Army knife is just practical. A lot of people resist getting away from using paper for their schedules and grocery lists. If you’re willing to get outside of your comfort

Are you a crunchy mom?

“Crunchy moms” are all about natural living. You might have a little bit of “crunch” in your parenting style if you do any of the following things. A lot of crunchy traits are things other moms mainstream moms might roll their eyes at. And for the record – that’s a-okay! Every mom makes different choices and we respect them all as long as baby is safe. You do you and what works for your family. You Might Be Crunchy If… Cloth Diapers Caring about the environment is considered crunchy to some. Of course, at Cotton Babies, we think families who

Reasons to Fall in Love with the Library
May 10, 2018 2:11 pm | by
Why you and your kids will love the library.

As a mom on a budget, I’ve found many ways to save money. Cloth diapers, for one, but being able to provide my guys with entertainment and learning experiences is really important to me, too. That’s why I quickly learned how much my local library has to offer. Babies have great opportunities for lap time, then storytimes as toddlers. (If you are in St. Louis, check out story time at Cotton Babies!) When they start reading, the library is a great way to get new books without spending a fortune, especially on a series they may not be too sure
