How do you start a blog post about sleep deprivation, when you’re a little sleep deprived? Much like you start or don’t ever finish anything: poorly and slowly! Are you reading this at 3am while someone very small is a) eating b) crying or c) pooping? Or is it nice and sunny outside but you’re a little disgruntled because you did not really get as much sleep as you’d wanted out of the nighttime hours? I know how you feel! As a new mom, sleep deprivation is unavoidable. It’s probably one of the first pieces of advice you received when
Cloth diapering a newborn can seem intimidating, especially if it’s your first child that you’ll be diapering. But then again, everything about newborns can seem a little intimidating, right? It’s because it’s new, not because it’s hard. Now that I have the diapering of three kids (and the potty training of two of them, more or less) under my belt, I’m going to go ahead and say it: diapering newborns is the easiest part. Newborns don’t move around that much. Not that they can’t wriggle and squirm but at least they can’t get up and run away laughing in the
We spend quite a bit of time here on the Cotton Babies blog talking about cloth diapers and output, which does consume quite a bit of life for most babies. But of equal importance is input. At Cotton Babies, we have a variety of accessories to help you feed your little one, no matter the method. Breastfeeding is often declared the most economical way to feed your little one in their early days because it requires the fewest accessories. You may find that a few things for mom will make the task a bit more comfortable. Two of our favorites

We’ve recently added Simplisse nursing products to our Cotton Babies catalog. The Simplisse line was developed through a partnership between industry-leading lactation consultants and moms. Every product in the Simplisse collection of breastfeeding products was carefully designed with the optimum health of mom and baby in mind. Simplisse has two goals, to make expressing milk a more comfortable, natural experience for moms and to collect breastmilk as efficiently and effectively as possible. The Simplisse Manual Breast Pump is designed to accurately mimic natural breastfeeding. The super-soft BabyFace™ flexible breast-cup conforms to mom’s breast and naturally move with mom while expressing.
We have two new products this week, one for mom and one for baby. We’ve been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Aden + Anais issie security blankets since we were first introduced to them a few months back when our Aden + Anais representative visited for our Grand Opening festivities. Perfect for after the swaddling days when your little one still appreciates the comfort of a lovie, but doesn’t need a full-size blanket. Avoid a Mr. Mom style woobie conversation with this conveniently sized, easy to conceal, 16 inch by 16 inch muslin blanket edged with soft satin trim.
A while back, we asked for “Real Mom Talk” topics and one mom suggested ‘how to look your best when you haven’t showered in days.’ When I read it aloud to the Cotton Babies offices, a mom immediately answered “Flat Iron!” While a little tongue-in-cheek, it’s a great topic to discuss. It’s hard to feel your best when you are sleep deprived and your body is recovering from pregnancy and delivery. Add breastfeeding into the mix and it’s easy to feel as if your body is not your own. It’s taken some time, but with boldness, I learned to ask
New this week at Cotton Babies: California Baby conditioners and detanglers! A few weeks ago, Jenn asked our Facebook fans what products they would like us to bring in. Several customers suggested we expand our California Baby product line. We’re pleased to announce we now have several new products to compliment your favorite California Baby shampoos. California Baby Tea Tree & Lavender Conditioner perfectly compliments the Tea Tree & Lavender Shampoo & Bodywash. It is a hit with dads who like the vibrant and functional blend of oils. The no tears formula contains no numbing agents, and is safe and
As many of you have already commented, one of the biggest changes that no one shares with you during the nine glorious months of pregnancy is how many different parts of your body will never be the same after carrying a child. My body changed slowly each day for nine months to adjust to carry my child and yet I somehow was disappointed when two days after delivery my body still looked six months pregnant. My stomach was saggy, spongy and deflated and my hips were wider than my shoulders. I expected it all to magically snap back into place
