Better Life Soap and Lotion!
June 8, 2012 4:39 pm | by

We’ve been talking about potty training a lot this week. One thing is certain when you have little ones in diapers or potty learning, you wash your hands a LOT. My skin was the worst during the years I had three children wearing diapers. I have sensitive skin and it was difficult to find a soap that would wash away all those germs without tearing away my sensitive skin with it.   That’s why I’m so excited Cotton Babies now carries No Regrets hand and body soap and Cool Calm Collected hand and body lotion.   I first tried Cool

In the trenches of potty training
June 7, 2012 2:59 pm | by

Did you read Jill’s wonderful and informative post earlier this week about the Potty Training Boot Camp method? Let me warn you, this post is nothing like that. We are, as I type, smack in the middle of attempting potty learning with Little Sir, our 2.5 year old son. This is a post, not from experience and hindsight, but from the trenches. I can’t tell you “how we did it” as much as “how we are attempting to do this”. May you learn from my ongoing mistakes!   Let me set the stage for you. Little Sir is what some

Potty Training Boot Camp
June 6, 2012 4:03 pm | by

The plan was always to have a second baby before my first turned three.   As we started to get closer to having to pull the trigger on working to get pregnant again, the plan quickly evolved to having my first, a boy- Kendall, potty trained before his younger sibling arrived.   Yes, I know that’s pretty young to potty train, especially a boy, when it comes to the advice I’ve read. We were really lucky, though, because he seemed more than ready. At not even 2, we left him for the first time, in the care of my mother.

Laundry Survival
June 2, 2012 10:24 am | by

On the heels of Heather’s Laundry Lament, I bring you some tips on how to stay on top of your laundry during the busy & crazy times of life. Which, let’s face it, ends up being every other week this time of year between vacations, full schedules, lots of special events and fun summer activities. When you’re out and about it’s way easier to forget about the laundry in the hamper, or worse, in the washing machine and fall behind. Then you have a mountain of laundry to tackle all at once the night before you’re leaving for a trip

Cotton Babies Daily Snap – June Edition!
June 1, 2012 2:48 pm | by

Back by popular demand – Cotton Babies Daily Snap! Last month we launched the Cotton Babies Daily Snap photo challenge. Each day, we provide a word to inspire you to take more photos of everyday life. We had so much fun and enjoyed all the great photos last month, we decided to do it again! Great! So how do I play along? First, start with our list: Today is June 1, so the word of the day is “swim”. I took a photo with Instagram last weekend at the pool, so I’m going to use it for today’s photo. Your

Laundry Lament

Oh laundry, the never-ending chore. Laundry has never really been an area I excelled in. Since the last addition to our family, I completely strike out on a regular basis. Six people, five beds, scores of towels, tablecloths, cloth napkins, un-paper towels and all the other things I use to be as green as possible in my home mean my washer and dryer get quite the workout. Unfortunately, even with all the laundry we do, I always seem to find a pile of dirty clothes lurking behind a closet door or a laundry basket of neatly folded clean laundry sitting

Tuesday Giveaway: All in a day’s work
May 29, 2012 3:05 pm | by

Summer is full of fun – swimming, road trips, vacations, park play dates, visiting guests and more. However, as I’m sure you’ve already discovered, there is no vacation from parenting. Children still have to be fed, bathed, diapered and put to sleep, no matter what your calendar says. Life is busy and even with our best intentions, it may not always be possible to cloth diaper, especially during times when you are away from home, don’t have access to laundry facilites or more. That’s why our Change 3 Things Challenge asks parents to change at least 3 cloth diapers a

Memorial Day
May 26, 2012 8:34 am | by

Memorial Day here in the States brings to mind pools, parties and barbeques for most people. And it is a fun kick-off to summer, especially when people have a long weekend to celebrate. But I also like to spend this time thinking about what Memorial Day is actually meant for- honoring veterans and military service members, especially those that have given their lives for our country. Maybe as an Army spouse I’m more likely to think about this aspect of the holiday than other people might, but I think it’s important for us all to remember current service members and
