Summer Fluffin’ Day 11 – GoGreen Pocket Diaper Review and GIVEAWAY!

I first heard of GoGreen pocket diapers on Facebook. People were going crazy over these diapers and everyone was talking about how great these diapers are. I immediately had to check out their site to see these amazing cloth diapers myself! Ok, ok...so I got to their site and immediately fell in love with the adorable prints they have, and wait a minute....did I see that they have minky diapers? All for a very low price? Wow. I had to try these … [Read more...]

Father’s Day Gift Guide – soleRebels Footwear Sponsor Spotlight

When I look for gifts, I look for things that are made of recycled materials and/or are environmentally friendly. I want the products I give to others to have at least one earth-friendly feature because I feel I am supporting the green world that I believe in and I am helping to spread the word about these great products by giving them to another person.  Obviously, this isn't something I ALWAYS do, but it's always my starting point when … [Read more...]

Summer Fluffin’ Day 10 – Stuff My Fluff: Using Pockets

Pocket diapers have their place in our house. They aren't our favorites, or even our second favorite, but there are times they work great! Pocket diapers are basically a shell that have a pocket in the front or back (most I've seen are in the back) and you can stuff inserts into them. The inserts I'm familiar with are mostly microfiber, however, I've heard about hemp and bamboo inserts as well. These are not daddy friendly in our home unless … [Read more...]

Summer Fluffin’ Day 8 – Mix & Match: fitted, prefolds & covers

Welcome to week two of Summer Fluffin'! Wow, time sure is flying and before we know it, Summer Fluffin' will be gone. :( Today we are going to discuss fitteds, prefolds and covers. To be completely honest, I have been dreading the day that I would have to write this post. I have never used prefolds. I have used a fitted a few times and the only covers I have experience with are covers like Best Bottoms and GroVia. So, as you can tell I am not an … [Read more...]

Green Tip Tuesday – What else but cloth diapers?

This week's Green Tip Tuesday is about using cloth diapers. I thought it would be appropriate since we are in the middle of our Summer Fluffin' event! Cloth diapering is the for sure green way to diaper your baby. Cloth diapers can easily be recycled (selling them to another to use after your children are done with them), they are reusable on your own baby, your next baby, and any baby who uses them when your babies are done with them, AND … [Read more...]

Summer Fluffin’ Day 6 – Are AIO #clothdiapers All They Are Cracked Up To Be?

When I was pregnant and a friend told me about using cloth diapers, I was very intrigued but also overwhelmed with the amount of information and the different types of diapers available. I wanted the most simple cloth diaper I could find. One that was pretty much like using a disposable, but wasn't going into the landfill. I found  fell in love with the all-in-one diaper! (simple, although our daycare managed to put one on inside out AND … [Read more...]

Father’s Day Gift Guide – Flipflop Wines Review

As I was looking for items to review for Father's Day gift ideas, I was contacted by Flipflop Wines and asked if I wanted to review some of their wines. I thought that would be a great addition to our Father's Day gift guide here at Mama on a Green Mission. My husband and I are not really wine drinkers (or any kind of  alcoholic beverage drinkers, really) but I thought it would be nice for him to try these and for him to have a glass of wine here … [Read more...]

Summer Fluffin’ Day 4 – Diapering at Night

As I mentioned the other day during the out and about post, we didn't use cloth at night in the beginning. It terrified me, probably because I read too many stories about people having leak problems. After a few months of cloth diapering, I began thinking more and more about how much I didn't want those chemical filled disposable diapers on my baby, especially at night when he would be in a wet diaper for many hours. I decided we had to make the … [Read more...]

Summer Fluffin Day 3 – WAHMIES Wet Bag Review and GIVEAWAY! #clothdiapers

If you saw my post yesterday about going out and about with fluff, you know it is very important to have a good wet bag to take along for outings. WAHMIES makes wet bags, pail liners, cloth wipes and even diapers! They were kind enough to send me a regular size wet bag (approximately 13" X 15") to review and another one to GIVEAWAY! Yay!!

Summer Fluffin Day 2 – Out and about with Fluff

I have to admit (shamefully) that when we first started using cloth diapers, we did not use cloth while out and about or at night. I know, terrible. Not having any prior experience with cloth, we used disposable diapers while out because we just thought it was easier. It didn't take long though for me to adjust to using cloth at home and then I'd say it was only a few months before I started using them while out. We used mostly AIO diapers … [Read more...]
