Have a Merry FluffMas with Buttons Velour Wipes!

When it comes to wiping my baby clean during diaper changes, we've done just about every option there is. To be honest, the Mister is not too keen on cloth wipes despite his love and appreciation for cloth diapers. He prefers the disposable wipes for cleaning up after a dirty diaper. In a final effort to make our system more ecofriendly overall, Buttons Diapers sent me two packs of their amazingly soft velour wipes to review. These wipes have an apple green velour on top and a soft, absorbent microfleece on the back making them perfect for not just baby bums, but little hands and faces too! And they're the perfect size to reuse on of those … [Read more...]

BeGreen T Review and Kickstarter Initiative

When it comes to being a green mom, there's only one thing I love that's even close to babywearing... And that, my friends, is cloth diapers. Cloth diapers are so easy, guilt free, not to mention they make baby bums look totally cute! When I was offered a chance to review the new line of tee shirts from BeGreen T, well this one was calling my name for sure! These tees are very soft and comfortable. They launder well (I've washed mine twice already). I was surprised because the logos are literally part of the shirt. They aren't painted on with cheap paint, so you don't have to worry about them peeling off from wear. The whole thing is super … [Read more...]

Cleaning Cloth Diapers with Spray Pal

I'm not going to lie; Cleaning cloth diapers can be messy. It's not hard, but it is gross. Breastfed poops aren't an issue because you just throw it in the wash and they come out clean. Once you get into solid feeding, however, you get these nasty peanut butter poops that are sticky and icky. Then you have to add a pre-wash to get all the filth off... but it's really getting the semi-solids off your precious cloth that can be difficult. That's where Spray Pal comes in handy. Before Spray Pal my routine was to stash the dirty diapers away until the end of the day. And then I had to spray the diapers down, all the while splashing on the rim … [Read more...]

That Time I Accidentally Poisoned My Husband.

So I have an obsession with coconut oil. That includes both food and beauty routines. I've been known to just blurt out "Coconut oil!" halfway through conversations just to get my foot in the door and spark conversation. Coconut oil all the things! Needless to say I have coconut oil jars laying about serving various functions throughout my house. (Tropical Traditions jars are just too fabulous.) I have to admit that the placement of this one particular jar might be a bit inconvenient: I have a jar of pure coconut oil in my "oil" cabinet (behind the salt and pepper), but right next to it is an old jar that is half full of my old wipe … [Read more...]

Expanding Our Cloth Diaper Stash with Lotus Bumz

I love experimenting with new diapers lately. Since Anders is big enough that his daily routine is pretty normal, I can map out which diapers are better depending on what's going to happen. Lotus Bumz are great no matter what time of day and I feel confident in reaching for them regardless of what's on the agenda. I received a Blue Gold Fish diaper and matching leg warmers and the pattern is to die for! The fun colors are perfect for my little boy and the quality is fantastic. The leg warmers are actually a little longer than the ones I have from other companies which ensures that they will stay in rotation as Anders grows. The diaper is … [Read more...]

We Love Buttons Diapers! {Review}

I started my stash with 28 cloth diapers in the same brand just to ease myself back into it. That was last summer. Now I'm successfully buying and trading and experimenting with other brands and other styles and finding out what I love more than my usual workhorse. I heard the Buttons Diapers buzz a few times before, but I didn't really buy into it until recently. And I must say... they re really awesome! Buttons Diapers are an easy snap-and-go system made up of two parts. A simple outer shell (also known as a cover) and a snap in insert. The nighttime inserts come equipped with extra absorbency to handle overnight issues. Whether you … [Read more...]

Cloth Diapering Lessons I Learned the Hard Way

My dive into cloth diapering was quite sudden. It wasn't something I had researched before Gaia was born, but rather something I simply came across while she was a newborn. I had been moved up north and since Gaia was a winter baby and I'm just a Florida girl, we did not like venturing out into the snow. Making a run for diapers was just silly. I admit it took a few articles to get me going, but once I realized how easy it all was I was sold. I began Gaia's stash at a month old and it was under $100. I had to buy and sell and try some things out, but I had FuzziBunz and Baby Soft Wraps at the end of our diaper days. My second baby was going … [Read more...]
