Baby E, Band Camp and Cloth Diapering…

Now that I am a mom I am thinking blog posts will get shorter and probably less thorough here (with more spelling and grammar errors I am sure) , I mean I am struggling to get posts written now that I can't sit down for an hour straight to write. Brain power is lacking as is uninterrupted blog writing time. You knew that already though huh? Anyway, on to the updates. After busting out 4 loads of laundry and loading the dishwasher I've got a few minutes to spare, baby E is the angel baby today. She was a screaming banshee yesterday, lol. She woke to feed about every hour and a half, would doze off while feeding then scream bloody murder when you tried to put her down and let...

Cloth poop catcher fun rocks! A cloth diaper post.

Yesterday I got some "fluffy mail" (in the cloth diapering world this mean a diaper related mail delivery). I ordered a few more cloth diapers and some much needed diaper safe laundry detergent so I could begin using my cloth diapers. We are working on our last pack of gifted disposable diapers and don't intend to buy more which means the cloth diaper stash needs to be expanded ASAP. Can I just add that Huggies Pure & Natural diapers suck big time? They really do! Poor E has poop stuck to her butt in these diapers, like the fabric repels the poo or something (and it is breastfeeding poo so it's not solid, just liquidy). I much prefer Seventh Generation disposable diapers over the Huggies hands down! Anyway, I bought some Planet laundry...

Newborn Diapering and Laundry Detergent, my picks

Everly is just over 3 weeks old and we are still burning through the packs of disposable diapers we've been given. The idea was that while she was having the meconium poop she would wear disposable since that poop can be hard on the cloth diapers. So we were given several packs of disposables to take with us in our birth kit. Then we got her home and still had several packs of disposable diapers to use up, plus we didn't have the time, energy or money to finish growing our cloth diaper stash. Plus, I still had no cloth diaper safe laundry detergent so the diapers I did have couldn't be pre-washed or used anyway. Cloth diapers can't be washed in detergents that contain softeners, dyes, enzymes, brighteners, etc. These additives...

Keeping busy while resting AND gathering some stuff for Tater…

Some of you might remember how I began a baby stuff contest entering spree back in March. I started it to feel like I was doing something productive in preparing for Tater's arrival and it has helped me not go crazy. Now It's been a few months since that began. I've been checking twitter regularly (this is my contest twitter account) and entering those contests that looked interesting when I have the time. It seems my efforts are paying off and it is kind of exciting! Since March I've managed to get a free BumGenius 3.0 diaper from cottonbabies, just yesterday I was told I've got a Gro Baby diaper on the way from thenaturalbabyco.com so that makes 2 free diapers that I've acquired since beginning my contest entering. I've also received several...

Looking at the Gro Baby Cloth Diapers for my growing stash.

Since Tater's arrival is nearing and we've almost got all our ducks in a row for labor and delivery I've shifted my focus back to my cloth diaper fun. Once we bring Tater home we'll begin cloth diapering fun (if we've managed to acquire a few more diapers to use by then). I am not too worried about the "grossness" factor that prevents many moms from even attempting to cloth diaper. I figure babies poop, pee and vomit on you anyway right? What is a little poop scraping/ spraying and diaper washing in comparison? Basically, I've only got one diaper in my stash as of today and I need more so I've been researching, reading, looking around for deals and managed to come across another diaper I am stoked to try out....
