Snappis in Size Two?! Perfect for the busy toddler!

*I received this product free for review. All opinions expressed are my own.* Right around the time baby girl was born last year, I got the opportunity to work with Snappi Baby on the launch of their brand new colors. They instantly became my favorite (sorry old colors)! But new or old colors, the product is what matters, and the product is fabulous. I’ve now been using Snappis for almost 4 years and I’ve come […]

Cloth Diapering: Large Toddlers & Growing Your Stash

When we started out cloth diapering journey a year ago, I had absolutely no idea how much we would love it! I knew that I was making a great investment for both my wallet and the environment. I didn’t know that my son would grow like a weed leading me to reinvest in a toddler stash this past month putting my smaller cloth diapers away for a future child. I didn’t know that finding these […]

Our Wash Routine

I starting washing cloth diapers in Country Save, but quickly ran out of our sample packets (Thanks Go Baby Go for hooking us up with so many the first time we bought our cloth diapers). I had been researching and coincidentally had a bottle of Eco Nuts Soap, so I decided to try it out before I went and invested in more laundry detergent. I really wanted to love this soap because I had read […]

The Manly Mondays Series: Cloth Diapering

When my wife first came to me with the idea of cloth diapering (CD) I thought it was fantastic. Save green by going green, brilliant! Then I asked my peers and circle of advisers about our master plan to limit our waste in more ways than one. The overwhelming response was that we were typical new parents with no idea how hard this would all be. “Don’t do it you’ll be tired and doing laundry […]

The Snot Rocket

The NoseFrida is fondly referred to in our house as ‘The Snot Rocket’. My husband gave it the name and I continued using it. We do this a lot. I’m sure Logan is going to think we’re so weird! Hopefully fun, but weird.We have used two different nasal aspirators since Logan was born. The first was BabyComfyNose, which I ordered off Amazon while I was still pregnant. We loved it! But then it got boiled […]

The Mama/Baby Expo 2014

I talked my husband into going to the Mama/Baby Expo this year. Logan drove us there. Kidding, but it looks pretty legit, right? Anyways, we’re a one car family and I was going a little stir crazy, so it was great to be out! Not to mention, I was itching to be in a room full of like minded people supporting cloth diapering, baby wearing, natural birth, doulas, birthing centers, essential oils, and more! It’s […]

sustainablebabyish, snappi, & sun

I wanted to do laundry every three days because with a high needs little guy I needed to spread out my house duties as much as possible. But I had a hitch in my plan. We had only two nighttime diapers. I tried things like stuffing the pocket of our AIOs diapers with an extra liner, but our son’s diaper was so fat and hard that I knew it wasn’t a viable option all the […]

Shopping locally, acquiring more diapers, and Punkin Butt Teething Oil

When I was getting ready to start cloth diapering, I had every intention of ordering a starter kit from Amazon using my Amazon Mom/Prime account to cover things like shipping. But, the more cloth diapers I looked at, the more I realized I couldn’t begin to figure out which diapers would work for us from pictures or other peoples’ testimonials. Did I want snaps or did I want Velcro? One size fits all or a […]

Starting Cloth Diapers

Originally, I wanted to cloth diaper Logan from the beginning. Having been researching all manner of organic and natural baby products for months during my pregnancy, I was ready to be an earth friendly mama. Imagine my disappointment when everyone told me that it would be too difficult to do while I was sleep-deprived and that I wouldn’t have any time to keep up with the extra laundry. As conflicted as I was about this […]
