How I Cloth Diapered My Newborn by Stephanie Hanson

Posted by on Oct 23, 2014 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Let’s just put it out there. Newborns poop. And they poop a lot. Those adorably tiny bottoms go through a metric ton of diapers per day. Or so it seems. It’s only the sleep deprivation that makes it feel like you are changing a diaper every five minutes. It’s really more like ten. Ok, so it’s a little better than that. In reality, it’s about a dozen per day. Now let’s say you’ve decided on a one-size diaper, whether it’s a fitted, all-in-one, pocket, or hybrid. Chances are your cute squishy little newborn is not going to be big enough...

That’s a diaper?!

Posted by on Sep 30, 2014 in Featured | 0 comments

When I teach Cloth Diapering 101 classes, I always enjoy how people react when I pull the flat diaper out of my kit. Eyes get big, and at least one person usually mutters “That’s a DIAPER?!” Flats certainly look intimidating to the uninitiated cloth diaperer, since they’re really just a big square of fabric and don’t look like a diaper at all, but they’re amazing and versatile, and well worth looking into when you’re building your stash. I love that they are truly a one-size diaper. These will fit a tiny newborn and a big ole toddler, because...

Summer Days Must Haves: Day 4

Posted by on Jun 26, 2013 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Summer must have #4 is Hyland’s Infant Earache Drops. Earache drops? Yup! Summer time is full of swimming and water related activities, and Hyland’s relieves the pain and itching from swimmer’s ears.  I just love Hyland’s products, and currently my youngest is teething. He is cutting 6 teeth (YIKES!) and teething tablets help soothe him during those periods of irritability that the amber necklace alone cannot help.  Make sure to check out other awesome Hyland’s products Diaper Parties has to offer.   Children under 3 years of age Tilt head...

Summer Days Must Haves: Day 3!

Posted by on Jun 24, 2013 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Summer Days must have item #3 is for mama! Mama needs to go swimming, right!? A moon cup! I have personally been using a cup for a couple of cycles, but never really would leave the house with it in. Not sure why. I did yesterday, and it was like a light bulb clicked! This was great! I went all day without worrying about it. The Moon Cup Menstrual Cup provides you with the same benefits as The Keeper, but is made of soft, non-latex, medical grade silicone. Introduced in 2006, The Moon Cup is innovative, economical, comfortable, and...

Summer Days Must Haves: Day 2!

Posted by on Jun 20, 2013 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

What is summer without a swim diaper!? My favorite swim diaper is the fairly new, My Swim Baby, by Planet Wise. They have such adorable prints with matching UV shirts! Plus, for those little girls, ruffles!! The swim diapers are sized, but I highly recommend sizing up. They do run on the smaller size. My 20lb+ youngest can actually wear the 3T that I originally bought for my toddler, and it doesn’t even fit him at all at 33lbs. Sizes are as followed: Small (9-18 lbs) Medium (17-23 lbs) Large (22-26 lbs) XLarge (25-31 lbs) 3T (30-40 lbs) I...

First day of summer is June 21st and it is coming among us. Depending where you live, summer is slowly arriving, or has been in full swing since February.

Wetbags can even be used by non-cloth users, because the uses are endless! They are great for the muddy,...
