Summer Cloth Diaper Giveaway Hop – Cozy Bums Diapers!

I am shamelessly biased, but I firmly believe that everyone should shop at Cozy Bums Diapers.  Cozy Bums Diapers has been my local retailer since I first started my cloth diapering journey back in 2010… and after a while, I bought so many diapers that Kerri, the owner, decided it was time to either hire […]

Funky Fluff DeLUX Hemp/Bamboo Soakers

Every time Funky Fluff comes up with something new, I’m impressed.  So when Funky Fluff asked me about sending one of their new products for review, I jumped at the chance.  The Funky Fluff DeLUX hemp/bamboo soakers have exceeded their usual standards of awesome! If you love natural fibers, then you’ve had times of waffling […]

Simplee by Nuggles – A Canadian Delight

When Bethany from The Little Sprout asked me if I wanted to review the Simplee by Nuggles all-in-two, I was interested.  I’d heard of Nuggles and knew that it was Canadian.  Last year, I borrowed a cloth diapering friend with a newborn to review the Nuggles newborn diapers, so why not?  After all, it’s an […]

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 […]

AppleCheeks Don’t Worry Reveal!

Meet the newest AppleCheeks in the AppleCheeks family… Don’t Worry! Don’t Worry (known on AppleCheeks colour charts and AppleCheeks Facebook groups as “DW”) is a limited edition diaper that’s very similar in colour to the Bee Happy swim diaper.  Even though Don’t Worry is a limited edition diaper, we expect it to be available for […]

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 […]

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 […]

Overcoming Obstacles with Kind Words, Gentle Hands and Listening Ears

Life with Norton has, in some ways, gotten harder.  He’s more defiant than ever.  He still uses “I peed in my room!” as an excuse not to go to bed or wherever else.  But things were out of control.  There was a lot of yelling, temper tantrums, throwing things, tears, and hitting.  Counting to three […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Why Baby Sleep Positioners Will Not Be Used in Our Home

Periodically, someone on my home board will ask for recommendations on baby sleep positioners.  Some moms say that they’ve used them because their baby has acid reflux, or it was the only way to keep their baby from rolling over in his or her sleep. As usual, I have a bit more of a hard […]

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 […]
