Eco Sprout Review and #GIVEAWAY! #fallfluff

Since the day we began using cloth diapers I have used pretty much the same type of cloth diaper friendly detergent. (I won a bag of one other kind and used that, but other than that one small bag, I used the same brand.) I will admit I was rather nervous about trying something new especially since I was already having some ammonia issues with some of my LA's diapers. I had read about Eco Sprout and I had been interested in trying it, so what … [Read more...]

My Dreaded Topic – Diaper Stripping #fallfluff

Ok, so I have been putting this post off because I really don't like the topic. You all know that I am having ammonia issues, still not completely resolved, but slowly getting better. I am by no means an expert on this topic. Diaper stripping to me is a lot of work and I want it to work immediately, but in our case, it isn't. I have recently received some amazing advice from the owner of Eco Sprout detergent and we are closer than ever to … [Read more...]

Grandma El’s Diaper Rash Remedy and Prevention Review and Grab a Free Sample!! #fallfluff

I am thrilled to be bringing you a review about Grandma El's Diaper Rash Remedy and Prevention cream today! I actually ordered some of this before LA was born and it's what we have been using since he was born. It works great for us and best of all - it has been cloth diaper friendly for us (although on their site it does state it may not work well with all brands of cloth diapers)!! :) Grandma El's not only has the diaper rash remedy and … [Read more...]

Dealing with Rashes #fallfluff

Rashes can be one of the most frustrating parts of diapering a baby. Diaper rashes are typically caused by excessive moisture against the baby's skin. There are other things that can cause diaper rash as well, like introducing new foods that increase dirty diapers or a breastfeeding mother changing her diet causing increased dirty diapers, which in turn can irritate baby's skin. We all hope that our babies won't get a rash, but unfortunately it … [Read more...]

What’s On My Mind Monday #Breastfeeding

What's on my mind today? It's another baby topic! Surprise, surprise. :) I have been thinking a lot about breastfeeding our new little one in February. Of course I want to, but I keep thinking about how much I struggled with breastfeeding LA for a year. It was tough getting enough milk many of those days when I was at work. I think I mostly worry. I wonder will I struggle like that this time? Will I even make enough milk to provide well enough … [Read more...]

One Size Versus Sized #ClothDiapers #fallfluff

When I first started looking into cloth diapers I thought the one size diapers were genius. When we planned on having LA, I knew we were planning on having more children soon after so that meant we would have multiple babies in diapers at the same time. So, because of this one fact I thought one size diapers were the way to go! I was really excited about one size diapers, after all, they fit most babies between 7 or 8 pounds and 35 pounds! That's … [Read more...]

Costume Discounters Review – Great for Halloween!

As fast as this year is going Halloween will be here before we know it! I have wondered off and on over this past year what we would dress LA in for Halloween since last year he was too small to really enjoy it.  We are huge Winnie the Pooh fans (his nursery is done in Pooh, and even our oldest son's nursery was Pooh!) so I wanted to find something related to the characters on Pooh but didn't want to go with the typical Pooh costume. I wanted … [Read more...]

What I Wish I’d Known Before Starting to #ClothDiaper #CLNB

I did a ton of research on cloth diapering when I was pregnant with LA. I think I did Google searches daily for different cloth diapering topics. I thought I had it down and even though I was scared in the beginning I felt comfortable in what I had learned and also in knowing I had a cloth diapering friend that I could ask any questions. What problems did I encounter? Well, I wish I had spent more time learning about diaper pails and storing … [Read more...]

What’s On My Mind Monday

So it's Labor Day and it's COLD outside so after running some errands this morning I am sitting here thinking. Yes, it's about fluff. How appropriate though since we are in the midst of Cloth Leaves Nothing Behind. I still have fluffy frustrations. I have washed and washed and washed my diapers and used vinegar and my AIOs STILL have ammonia. I haven't been brave enough to try any of the others after noticing the ammonia on some of them. We've … [Read more...]
