Oko Creations Mama Cloth Review (and a giveaway!)

Oko Creations Mama Cloth (And Giveaway!)

I have, as of late, been on a quest to have a greener period.  And a more comfortable period.  Sure, some of my attempts have been a momentous fail… but using Oko Creations mama cloth has been the closest I’ve ever been to having a happy period. I’m going to blame Maman Loup for this […]

Reasons to Avoid ClothDiapers.Us.Com - Cloth Diaper Addicts

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 […]

Natural Fiber Inserts for Us! (Cloth Diaper Addicts)

Natural Fiber Inserts for Us!

For the last four years, I’ve been just fine with the microfiber inserts that came with the majority of our cloth diapers.  I always figured anyone who just had to use natural fiber inserts all the time were overstating the wonders of natural fiber or understating the benefits of microfiber. Until now.

Buyer Beware - Cloth Diapers on eBay (Cloth Diaper Addicts)

Buyer Beware – Cloth Diapers on eBay

This morning, I was perusing eBay.  Sometimes I go through to see if there are any hard to find cloth diapers on eBay.  Maybe it’s something that I’m looking for (like an AMP Very Cherry) or it’s something I already have and I’m curious what I could realistically sell it for when the time comes.  […]

My Cloth Diaper Stash – A Video

I have too many cloth diapers to fit in one stash shot.  So I bring you the stash video.

Cloth for a Cause Television Debut!

For several months now, I’ve been an active volunteer with the Prince George chapter of Cloth for a Cause.  We recently did a small cable spot to bring awareness to the non-profit organization.  Here it is!  (And you can see my littles running about and being adorable.)

Tots Bots Birthday Release – Coming Soon!

Are you crazy about the new TotsBots Binky diapers (also known as the v4)?  I think they’re a pretty amazing diaper, myself… and I’m in love with the new nursery rhyme prints.  Now Tots Bots has decided that we need another new print to celebrate Prince George of Cambridge!  A year ago, they surprised us […]

bumGenius Chaplin Genius Series Diaper

bumGenius Chaplin – The Newest Genius!

Finally.  I had given up all hope on the companion diaper to Audrey coming out before Eudora was housebroken.  However, today, Cotton Babies surprised me by sneaking the newest member of the Genius Series past me.  They introduced the bumGenius Chaplin print! The bumGenius Chaplin is available in 4.0, Elemental, Freetime, Flip, and newborn all-in-one.  […]

AppleCheeks Raspberry Sorbet is Retiring

I’m pretty bummed.  What is easily one of my favorite AppleCheeks colors has just been retired.  The AppleCheeks Raspberry Sorbet diaper has just been discontinued, so I’m going to put it away in my vault.

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 […]

Coping with Pelvic Pain during Pregnancy (Cloth Diaper Addicts)

Coping with Pelvic Pain during Pregnancy

I was hoping that I wouldn’t have to deal with pelvic pain during pregnancy this time around.  I really was.  That particular pain during pregnancy kicked in towards the third trimester with Norton.  This time?  I didn’t even make it to the eight week mark. But that’s all right.  There’s one good thing about having […]

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 […]

A Brief Look at Canada Day History

Right now, my friends and family to the south of me are planning for their Fourth of July weekend.  We’re doing something similar up here in Canada, except for us, it’s Canada Day and it’s on July 1.  When I moved up here, about all that I knew about Canada Day history is that it’s […]

Summer Bucket List for 2014

It’s definitely summer!  Schools in BC are out now as the teachers are on strike.  (And I totally agree with them, but that’s the subject of another blog post.)  The weather is beautiful, and Prince George is a veritable outdoor wonderland of parks and forests and things to do.  With that in mind, here’s my […]

Mini Kiwi Pocket Diaper Review

Mini Kiwi Pocket Diaper Review

I thought that I was running out of cloth diapers to try, particularly from bigger companies that sold their product in cloth diaper boutiques.  Then my friend Lindsay put Mini Kiwi Diapers and I together for a review.  Simone of Mini Kiwi graciously sent me a package diapers and accessories, including this Mini Kiwi pocket […]

Funky Fluff Stay Dry 2.0 Review and Giveaway

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 […]

Nuggles Tuck-Wrap-Go Cover Review

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 […]

Chaplin Doesn't Have to Cost an Arm or a Leg (Yet)

Chaplin Is Still Available at Retail!

There’s a lot of craze over the latest bumGenius Genius Series diaper, the Chaplin.  We’ve been waiting for this diaper, the companion to Audrey, for months now and it’s flying off the shelves. Some retailers have gotten wise to the flipping game and have decided to limit the purchase of the diapers.  Even still, though, […]

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 […]

Train Track Tuesday (Cloth Diaper Addicts)

Train Track Tuesday

After some of the insanely huge builds I’ve made for my kids, I’m starting to favor smaller layouts.  At least that will mean that there’s room to walk in the room. Elements used (Amazon affiliate links): 1.) Chuggington Wooden Railway Double-Decker Roundhouse 2.) Thomas And Friends Wooden Railway – Early Engineers Busy Day on Sodor […]

Please Don’t Let Our Son Be Broken

I can’t stop sobbing as I write this.  I’m beyond terrified.  I don’t understand how this thing could be possible in our family.  Autism or Autistic Spectrum Disorder are things that happen to other families.  Not mine.  Not to two parents who are both tested as geniuses.  This isn’t supposed to happen to us. Things […]

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 […]

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 […]

Why Childhood Vaccinations are Important (Cloth Diaper Addicts)

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. When we finally got out of Chilliwack and headed back home, I had put the freshly laundered Snugli infant […]

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) […]
