Help a Mother Out partners with organizations throughout California to bring diapers to high need families. They essentially match up donators with donees (is that a word?) to provide diapers to families and young mothers in need. They also partner with diaper banks around the nation. Since May 2009, they have collected over 156,900 diapers for families in need! SO INCREDIBLE! Most of the families they help are not in a position to use cloth, but we recently saw a tweet from them mentioning one of their partnering organizations had a need for cloth diapers and we were so blessed

Reusable grocery bags are fantastic, inexpensive and easy way

There comes a moment in most babies’ lives when they realize they have a special power: the power to remove their own diapers. Fear shoots up and down a parent’s spine to consider the possibilities that exist now. The look of realization on a child’s face when they realize they can strip down on their own is priceless. This is suddenly a huge step towards their independence. They get to decide if their clothes stay on or not. Lily will brush up against the velcro of her diaper and realize that it has been left uncovered and suddenly her face
