10 Reasons I Love Prefolds
June 8, 2008 1:04 pm | by

1. They are cheap. At $2 or less per diaper (depending on size and thickness) this is easily the cheapest way to cloth diaper. You can get enough diapers to get you through your baby’s entire diapering period for less than $100. 2. They are soft. After they quilt up in the first few washes, they are soft and fluffy and comfortable. I know I would be willing to wear them around my sensitive parts if I needed to, so I feel good about my baby wearing them. The Chinese prefolds are very soft, but the Indian prefolds are even

 
What’s so great about wool?
May 24, 2008 10:30 pm | by

There are all kinds of diaper covers out there to keep baby’s clothes dry and the diaper mess contained. Some are very inexpensive and some are not. For those just getting started, you might wonder why someone would choose to pay over $40 for one diaper cover that needs some special care. There actually is a very good reason. Because it is wool. There are many reasons for choosing wool. It is a natural fiber, renewable, breathable, and while the care of wool diaper covers is a little pickier than most other covers, the times it needs care and attention

 
Yo-yo Baby
May 16, 2008 10:30 am | by

You might have noticed that I have not been around to post much lately. I place the entire blame on my now- eight month old who is going through a few new developmental stages that make using a computer fairly difficult. And even now she is trying her best to climb all over my laptop. A couple of weeks ago she hit what we call around here the Yo-yo Stage. She had mastered crawling and sitting and was enjoying playing with toys much more. She was a much happier baby now that she could choose what to do and where

 
Things I Would Rather Buy
March 28, 2008 1:51 pm | by

When my husband is working a lot of overtime I get tempted. Wandering through the grocery store, those cute little boxes of disposable diapers sing their siren song, “I’m so much easier, you can do a little less laundry since this week is so busy.” I begin to falter, reaching out towards a particular favorite brand, realizing no, I don’t want the smaller package, because then I have to worry about running out. But the price sets me back a bit. $20 for the big box. I look at my cart. $20 adds a lot to a grocery bill. Especially

 
A Favorite Baby Toy
March 26, 2008 11:22 am | by

Fold a piece of clothing, hand Lily her toy, fold a piece of clothing, hand Lily her toy… so it went as I tried to catch up on folding the mountain of laundry while Lily was willing to sit in her Bumbo chair. Unfortunately, though, Lily’s grip is not the surest and she can’t reach the things that fall on the floor from her seat. So up and down I went, handing her the toy and then folding something. It was so nice to see her interested in something besides me for a moment, even if her dexterity wasn’t quite

 
White Onesie
February 13, 2008 9:43 pm | by

A good friend of mine once pointed out to me that there is just something about a baby in a white onesie. It took me a while to really understand what she meant, but it is true. There is something so pure and perfectly simple about a baby, especially a freshly bathed one, in a white onesie. There are millions of beautiful baby clothes out there, why something so boring as a white onesie? I think that it is because when your baby is in a white onesie, what you look at is just the baby. There is nothing to

 
Toilet paper defense
November 8, 2007 6:07 pm | by

This is a little off topic, but hey… it’s a blog. Why is the toilet paper roll a toddler magnet? I don’t know how many times I’ve rewound the toilet paper roll after our little one unrolled it onto the floor at 5,000 rpm. It usually ends up looking like a bird nest stuck on the wall. So the other day I noticed the toilet paper was put on with the end going down the back and against the wall (as opposed to the easier-to-access over the top and in front position) . Andrew came in and started pawing at

 
Cloth diaper alphabet soup
March 17, 2005 5:54 pm | by

One of the most frustrating things for a new mom doing her cloth diaper research online has to be deciphering the alphabet soup of abbreviations floating around the discussion forums. If a line like ‘my DH uses CPFs but I prefer FBs and roos’ makes you go hmmm, this little piece of blogery is for you. Here are some of the more common terms you’ll see floating around about cloth diapers online: AIO – All In One diapers (diaper with waterproof outer and absorbent inner all in one piece.Aplix – hook and loop fastener a-la VelcrobG – bumGenius: one-size cloth

 
People still use cloth diapers
February 23, 2005 2:12 pm | by

When people think about cloth diapers, they think of sticky vinyl pants and big scarey pins better suited for shish-ka-bobs. If you tell someone you use cloth diapers, they get a quirky look on their face and think you’re a little strange. Using cloth diapers really isn’t that bad and regular people still use them. Back in the day, cloth diapering didn’t have many options. If you wanted to cloth diaper, you bought some cotton prefolds, pins, and covers. Today, technology and creative moms are moving cloth diapers forward. We have things like bumGenius, inserts, All-In-Ones and contours to choose
