I’m a working mama of 3 kids, and I’ll admit, I often don’t do things the “easy” way. I love to cook from scratch, I clean incessantly, and I research almost every product before making a purchase. So there are times I just need something to be simple. And using cloth diapers is simple! But with it comes a whole slew of techniques on how to clean them: spraying, swishing, soaking, sunning, etc. I don’t have time for all that! I do laundry seemingly around-the-clock as it is. I just want something that works the first time; something that I don’t
There are so many reusable products out there! Of course, my favorite would have to be cloth diapers, but I like so many others too! Reusable products help cut down on waste, save money, and can come in some cute designs and colors that throw away products don’t. Reusable sandwich bags – My husband packs his lunch almost daily. Sandwiches, chips, snacks… it really adds up. He could take up to 5 plastic bags a day. And then, they just get thrown in the trash! Who wants to literally throw money away on a daily basis? Sure, it’s only a few pennies.
It’s hard to find a nursing tank that meets all of my criteria – not too skimpy, supportive, comfortable, and easy to nurse in. With the birth of my third baby in April, I was on the lookout for the perfect tank. The MilkDaze Nursing Cami has been the best I’ve found so far. The nursing tank is true to size. I wear a large shirt and the large tank fits well. It’s nice and long, which I like because I don’t want my postpartum belly popping out of my clothes. The tank is a bit low cut, but it’s perfect to
My little guy has been quite interested in the potty for a few months now so my husband and I decided it was time to venture into the potty training world. I was a little hesitant as where to even start with the whole potty training stage. After chatting with a few Mom’s and hearing their suggestions/experiences we decided to give the WeePOD Basix. The first thing I noticed when we received the potty seat was the quality of the seat. It’s made from a super soft foam material, similar to a bumbo seat, which makes the seat firm, but
Our just-turned-four-year-old son has been out of diapers for about a year. Or, he’s out of diapers during the day at least. Staying dry all night has been a bit more of a struggle though, so I jumped at the chance to try out the Flip Potty Trainer from Cotton Babies. I learned pretty quickly that I would need to boost the absorbency, at least initially. But the great thing about the system is that it’s easy to add an extra insert. I loved being able to adjust to what we needed, instead of being stuck with limited options. And even
As a mom of 3 kids (all of whom I have nursed past 12 months), I have had my share of lousy nursing bras. I buy a new one only to wear it only a month or two because it stretches out, warps, or no longer fits. In my opinion, comfort is KEY when it comes to a nursing bra (or any bra for that matter)! So when I saw that the Original Bravado markets itself as a comfortable bra for a nursing mom’s changing body, I was definitely interested! And this bra is absolutely comfortable for three main reasons:
I have a very extensive diaper stash full of bumGenius, Flip and other brands. I’ve got Freetimes, 4.0s, and Flips galore. However, I’ve never tried a single Flip insert. For whatever reason, I always used a prefold, flat, or made a receiving blanket into a flat. So you can imagine my surprise when I finally tried the Flip Organic Day Time Inserts. Oh my goodness. Talk about trim. If you’re trying to get away from the cloth diapered large baby bum, this is the way to go. My husband and I were actually laughing at how small her bum looked
My husband and I have put baltic amber necklaces on both our children from the age of around 4 months to almost 2 years old. I wanted to share why we use amber teething necklaces. You might have seen adorable babies, toddlers, around 4 months to almost 2 years old, and even adults sporting these darkly beaded necklaces. The beads are made of baltic amber, which is not actually a gemstone, but a resin. When this resin is warmed by the skin of the wearer, it releases a tiny amount of healing oil that is said to have analgesic properties. In
