My Top 5 Baby Money Saving Tips for New Parents

One of the first things I wanted to figure out as new parents was how we could save money on baby gear. I’m not a money saving expert.  In fact, I am much better at spending than saving. Well, I guess I have some idea on how to save so you can spend.


Feeling Like a Cloth Diaper Flunky [Because Prompts are Fun]

Once upon a time I loved cloth diapering.  I even loved doing diaper laundry.  While pregnant with Xander I looked forward to cloth diapering a newborn and packed them in my hospital bag.  I’ve used cloth with Rissa for two years – I’m a fluff veteran! I thought.  Think of all the


Baby Update: 2 Weeks Old

Xander wearing his Twotara reversible romper! After waiting almost all year to meet Mr. X, it’s hard to believe he’s 2 weeks old already! When we left the hospital he was a bit yellow from jaundice and considered intermediate risk. Every morning for 3 days after he came home I had to


My Hospital Bag is Packed!

After enough hemming and hawing and slacking off, I finally finished packing my hospital bag last week.  I had it mostly packed for about a week prior, but put the last few items in at the end of last week.  I thought I might go into labor by now, so I felt

September Sprinkles: itti bitti Tutto Cloth Diaper Giveaway (US) 10/9

I’ve shared a couple reviews of the itti bitti Tutto in the past.  The first one was when we were still pretty new to cloth and the second was to show how fashionable they are! It is a trim diaper that is made for babies 8-44lbs and works well on my skinny minnie!


Expanding Our Cloth Diaper Stash With Neutral Colors

When we decided to switch to cloth diapers, I tried to stick with buying neutral colors.  I did get a few girly colors (purple!) at first, but mostly wanted to build a stash that would work for our future children regardless of their sex.  Well, with all the cute prints and colors


Why I Am a Crappy Mom

There are a lot of other blogs written by moms about their experiences. Many of them I read and relate to…some have different opinions and parenting preferences than I. Very rarely do I sit and think what crappy parents they are (maybe in my head I think a certain choice or behavior


This Time I’m Cloth Diapering a Newborn! #clothdiapers

With Rissa, we started out using disposables.  I didn’t attempt cloth until she was 3 months old, going on 4 months old.  Now at nearly 23 months old, it feels like we’ve always used cloth!  I’m not quite sure why I planned on sposies (they are very mainstream, but expensive), but once

5 of My Favorite Cloth Diaper Prints #clothdiapers

One of the best parts about using cloth diapers is the fabric options.  There are so many different looks, colors and textures.  I started out with mostly neutral colors and a few “girly” colors and slowly got lured in by prints.  It’s what makes fluff so addicting to buy!  So many cute

My Perfect Dream Cloth Diaper

The Challenges of Cloth Diapering a Toddler

When I started cloth diapering my daughter, I figured everything would be pretty easy once we got into it. For the most part it has been easy… Well, easier than I initially thought it would be. However, I learned I cannot just find a routine and be done with it. Oh no,

SoftBums Echo Cloth Diaper Review – Now With Snaps!

One of the dividing lines in the cloth diaper community is snaps versus hook and loop.  I find some people are indifferent, but most fluff fans have pretty strong feelings about the use of one or the other.  If you’ve been reading my cloth diaper reviews, you know I’m a snaps fan.


Stupid Flu Season – I Hate Being Sick!

This past week has not been fun at all.  I’m dealing with some personal stress with the news of a family member being diagnosed with a serious illness.  Then last Wednesday night, Rissa got sick. Then Saturday it hit me. The stomach flu. I’m glad it’s not the full blown flu but
