4 Reasons Cloth Diaper Covers are Awesome!

4 Reasons Cloth Diaper Covers are Awesome (And a Giveaway!)

Lately, I’ve been seriously loving the diaper covers.  Prefolds and covers have been a method of cloth diapers that’s been around for… well, pretty much ever, though what the covers are made of and how they are styled have changed over the years.  I’m not really feeling the prefold love these days… but cloth diaper […]

Snap or Velcro in your Cloth Diaper Stash?

When one decides to use cloth diapers, one quickly finds that there’s a whole lot to learn.  You’ve got different styles (prefolds, fitted, hybrid fitted WAHM, hybrids, pockets, all-in-two, and all in ones) to choose from, and then within those different styles are a plethora of brands.  And the start up cost to building a […]

Reasons to Avoid ClothDiapers.Us.Com

Generally, I avoid calling out specific sites.  Yes, there are stores out there that I love and will flog to anyone who will listen… but I’ve only come across two cloth diaper stores that are so darned gross that I never want anyone to shop with them.  Ever.  The first was Shop Diaper.  Lindsay of […]

Where Should You Change the Baby? Cloth Diaper Addicts Answers

Where SHOULD You Change the Baby?

My Facebook feed has been blowing up this morning.  The mommy groups, the cloth diapering groups, and my friends list are all talking about the same thing: a mother decided to change the baby at the table in a restaurant.  She and her family were booted. Okay, in all fairness, she didn’t pop her newborn […]

Baby Fever? Nope!

Baby Fever? Not Even a Little Bit

It’s funny.  I have friends that are talking about how they have baby fever.  I see people online make comments about instant baby fever after seeing cute baby pics.  But me?  I can’t relate.  I don’t have even a little bit of baby fever. We’re done. I see people wondering from time to time when […]

Six Weeks Pregnant and Bloated (TMI throwback post)

I am 6w3d pregnant. I currently look 6m3w pregnant. (6 months, 3 weeks.) I am quite, er, “well-endowed”. I’m so bloated that my stomach is sticking out beyond my boobs. I keep trying to go to the bathroom, and it takes 20 minutes to pop out a raisinette. My tummy is gurgling from gas. It […]

Abdominal Pain during Pregnancy #Throwback

One of the things I love about blogging is that I have a permanent record about how I felt and the things that I did.  It’s wonderful to see how far I’ve come.  When I was six weeks pregnant with Eudora, I woke up with abdominal pain during pregnancy.  I’d had a miscarriage prior to […]

Beaten Down to Exhaustion - Cloth Diaper Addicts

Beaten Down to Exhaustion

I spent the majority of July in Radio Silence.  I didn’t do much posting.  There was a very simple reason for that, and that reason still exists.  I’m exhausted.  I feel beaten down and depressed. Life with Norton is wearing me down.  For a while, I was able to make jokes about how we were […]

As much as I hate to link back to Amy Glass and give her any more attention than she’s already gotten, there seems to be no other option.  Read her post before you read mine. Ms. Glass, You and I clearly have different ideas on different things.  And that’s okay.  But I will say that […]

Funky Fluff 2.0 Review

For the sake of disclosure, I received this Funky Fluff Stay Dry 2.0 cloth diaper to review. I’m far too opinionated to let something like that influence my opinion! When Maman Loup let me know that the new Funky Fluff Stay Dry 2.0 was in need of reviewers, I jumped on the chance.  I really […]

I frequently receive products for testing so that I can share the results with you.  Even though I receive product for free, it does not impact my opinion.  Every now and again, though, someone asks me if I’d like to review a diaper meant for a newborn baby.  Since my youngest is now two, I’m […]

Sometimes There’s Some Good (An Update)

I’ve been amazed at the amount of support that I’ve gotten (and helpful suggestions!) after writing about how there are times that I just feel so very defeated when dealing with my son.  Thank you.  I appreciate it.  A lot. The last couple of days have had some improvements.  Yes, there are still a lot […]

Early Reading Progresses!

Toddler Language Development of the Girly Kind

When it comes to toddler language development, Eudora never ceases to amaze me.  Maybe it’s because I have the struggles of Norton’s language delay fresh on my mind, but regardless, I’m going to take a moment to brag on La Princesa. She amazes me.  Most mornings when I open her bedroom door, she’s still in […]

Chuggington vs. Thomas Wooden Railway

A lot of little kids are enjoying the wooden trains.  Who can blame them?  Trains are just awesome.  Still, though, when parents are trying to figure out how to indulge their child’s train love, they often find themselves wondering some big questions.  Chuggington or Thomas? While my friend Jo likes to tell me that I’m […]

Why Child Vaccinations Are Important

There are a lot of different reasons why people do or don’t choose to participate in child vaccinations.  I’m not here to criticize them or bring up any logical fallacies.  I’m giving my opinions on child vaccinations, and maybe a little bit of factual information sprinkled in. That being said, think about what you learned […]

Hell’s Gate and Babywearing

  In honor of International Babywearing Week, I’ve decided to pull out some of my old babywearing posts.  My favorite places to wear my babies were always out and about, so it was a guaranteed adventure.

Infant Car Seat Clean Up

I knew when Norton started gnawing on the pull strap of his infant car seat that it was time to clean the darned thing.  Well, actually, I knew that it was time to clean Norton’s infant car seat when we had to put a receiving blanket under him in Cache Creek (3 hours from home) […]
