January 5, 2012 2:09 am | by

I’m feeling a bit of post-holiday hangover. Not the type of hangover you may have experienced in college, but rather the kind of hangover that happens when you look around and find yourself asking “Now what?” The holidays can be filled with parties, gatherings, travel, fun, gifts and indulgent foods. But in the days that follow, families often begin to feel the effects that all those changes from the norm bring: bedtimes and nap times get pushed around; well meaning family members feed all types of decadent, sweet treats to your little ones; excitement builds and then crashes. When all

Tuesday Giveaway: All I Want for Christmas
December 27, 2011 12:18 pm | by

Recently, Jennifer Labit, owner of Cotton Babies and creator of bumGenius, Flip and Econobum, shared her Christmas wish list on her blog: Christmas is a fun season of the year, but I’m not a big “stuff” person. My idea of Christmas fun would actually be a large dumpster out in front of my house so I can “de-stuff”. I always get people asking about what I want for Christmas though, so this year, I’m taking the proverbial “bull by the horns” and just putting it out there for everyone to read.

Cloth 101: Do not use a sanitize cycle on bumGenius
November 7, 2011 2:56 am | by

We do not recommend using a sanitize setting for your bumGenius, Flip and Econobum brand cloth diapers. Although your washing machine manufacturer may suggest the sanitize cycle for cloth diapers, they make this recommendation based on an older style of cloth diaper, such as a prefold, rather than modern cloth diapers. Sanitize cycles on newer washing machines super heat the water within the machine, raising it above our suggested washing temperature.
