Funky Fluff Hanging Diaper Pail Review

It’s not very often that I find a wet bag worth raving about.  Really, a wet bag is kind of the unsung hero of my cloth diapering experience: it’s necessary, I use them a lot, but they don’t get shown off or bragged about.  In four and a half years of cloth diapering, we have […]

Bummis Flannel Fitted Review

When Bummis introduced their new line of fitted diapers, I was intrigued.  I’m not a huge fan of fitteds as a rule… but I am a huge fan of Bummis.  So when Bear Bums contacted me to review the Bummis Flannel Fitted diaper, I jumped at the chance. About the Bummis Flannel Fitted Diaper Like […]

Cloth Diaper 101

Natural Fiber All-in-One Cloth Diapers

There’s a reason why there are so many different options for cloth diapers: everyone has different favorites.  Our babies are shaped differently and have different outputs.  Rather than just expecting us all to use the same thing and like it, now we’re blessed with an overwhelming array of cloth diaper brands to choose from!  But […]

Cloth Diaper Group Etiquette

I never thought that it would be necessary to write a blanket post on cloth diaper group etiquette.  After all, I’m certainly not a “Miss Manners” type and can throw down a little too easily.  Plus I’m forever saying that every cloth diaper group has their own culture with things to remember.  Dropping an eff-bomb, […]

Bleach Soak Cloth Diapers? I’ll Pass

Let’s be realistic: the bleach soak for cloth diapers controversy has been done and redone a million times.  There are people who will bleach soak their cloth diapers on a monthly basis and “never have an issue.”  So I’m not going to tell you that if you bleach soak cloth diapers they’re going to burst […]

bumGenius Chico – Formerly Known as Rudyard Kipling

I never thought that I would talk about race relations on Cloth Diaper Addicts.  It’s a website devoted to cloth diapering, not social justice.  Today, though, those two worlds collided.  All because bumGenius gave us a new diaper. At 12:45 Pacific time, Cotton Babies released this diaper: It’s pretty, isn’t it?  And the print is […]

New AppleCheeks Swim Diapers!

I am in LOVE!  AppleCheeks has once again thrilled us with a beautiful reveal.  This time around, we’ve got two new swim diapers: Bondi and Beth of Fresh Air.  While I think that Bondi looks a lot like St. Lucia (which is a favourite in our stash!), Beth of Fresh Air is so darned lovely […]

Best Bottom Lace Discontinued

Is Best Bottom Lace your favorite print?  Or have you been on the fence about adding Best Bottom Lace to your stash?  If you’ve been debating, you’d better grab it quick.  Best Bottom Lace is now retired.  Once it’s gone from the stores, it’s gone forever. I’m glad I got mine.  It’s one of my […]

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. […]

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

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 […]

Don’t Put Me in a Box – An Open Letter to Amy Glass

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 […]

They offer inserts, covers, wipes, wet bags, pail liners, and disposable liners. You can check out their line-up here. I received a cover in Ahoy […]

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!

From the time I was pregnant with Norton, I was hoping to instill a love of books and learning. I just knew that we had to promote early reading as best as possible. But there was a bit of a stumbling block with that. Sure, I went to school to teach… but I wanted to […]

Elements used (Amazon affiliate links): 1.) Chuggington Wooden Railway Double-Decker Roundhouse 2.) Thomas And Friends Wooden Railway – Early Engineers Busy Day on Sodor […]

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 […]

If You Give a Kid an iPad…

Everyone loves the classic book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and its sequels like If You Give a Moose a Muffin and If You Give a Pig a Pancake.  It’s all about how when you do something, there are consequences, whether planned or otherwise.  It turns out that if you give a kid […]

Tips for Getting Rid of Cradle Cap (New People Co brush)

  No one likes seeing cradle cap on their baby’s brand new skin, but unfortunately, some babies get it. Nope, it’s not a pretty sight. But there are things you can do, and if your baby hasn’t gotten cradle cap yet (not saying that they will), there are things that you can do to help […]

Tips for Preventing Diaper Rash

  Diaper rashes seem almost inevitable when your kid is in a diaper 24/7. Some babies seem to be more disposed to them than others, while others are lucky and never get one. Sister has really sensitive skin, and she will get really bad rashes if I’m not careful. Little Man’s rear end doesn’t seem […]

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 […]
