Today's the big day. The day the kids have all been waiting for...I've been waiting for it
too. It's Candy-ween!!! I mean Halloween! That one day during the year when those fun
size candies and treats can be consumed for weeks to follow. If you're trying to watch
what you're eating today can put a huge dent in any progress that you've made. Lucky for (Read more...)
Baby carriers are an ideal option to provide convenience for on-the-go parents, but the options are endless, and choosing the right one for your family is overwhelming. A few options in hands-free babywearing include wraps, ring slings, front carriers and back carriers, but there are a wide range of additional features available as well.
The issue of cloth diapers versus disposable diapers is an old debate; each diaper has its advantages and disadvantages. The best way to arrive at a sure decision about which type serves you best is to fully educate yourself on the features of both to find which diaper works more in your and your baby's favor.
Conventional disposable diapers offer parents significant convenience in the way of maintenance and disposal, but many are uninformed as to the disadvantages of using them. Virtually all disposable diapers contain a long list of toxic ingredients that could do great harm to your baby if ingested including bleach derivatives. They also contain sodium polyunsaturate, a type of absorbent crystal no longer used in feminine care products due to its link with toxic shock syndrome.
Once you've determined which cloth diaper brand or style you love, the next step is investing in them. You may not cloth diaper full time from the start but for most that is the goal.
Purchasing a cloth diaper package deal is a great way to save on cloth diapers and get what you need in one easy order.

As I peruse different brands of diapers and read the reviews left by different customers, I'm always amazed to see such a dichotomy of opinions about a particular brand. One reviewer says things like, “This diaper is awesome! We love it! Great fit, never leaks, etc.” while another says, “This was a terrible diaper." (Read more...)
He wandered up to us in the library with playful brown eyes, tousled dirty blonde hair, and a crooked little smile. He sniffled with the kind of light cold or virus that is usually brought with the onset of fall and his fingers were touched with the evidence of hours of messy play. He watched my four-year-old daughter play with the communal toys with great interest, (Read more...)

All the way back in January I wrote about working out during your first trimester. I asked the question,
can you exercise during your first trimester? The unanimous answer from
everything I read was yes, you can exercise during your first trimester and you should
still keep up a workout habit even after you see that positive pregnancy sign. I'm going to
level with you...
For those who've yet to diaper a baby at all, choosing to start with cloth diapers full time can be easier than for those trying to transition from current disposable diaper use.
These are tips intended for those in this precarious transition phase. "To cloth diaper or not to cloth diaper, that IS the question."
About six months ago, I wrote a post about how my daughter was facing bullying at daycare. It's been so long now, and so long since she's been in daycare even, that I don't remember all the specifics anymore. What I do remember is that poor, three-year old Bunny was made to feel small and helpless in the face of someone trying to feel better about themselves by belittling her. Unkind words, and actions that excluded her brought my normally bubbly and happy little girl home bereft of all her confidence. She was so sad... (Read more...)

I didn't have many prefolds when my daughter was a young baby and those I did have a didn't like to use as diapers unless we were out of everything else, but Baby Bear has a good variety of them in different sizes and fibers. This family largely prefers the use of pocket diapers so we don't actually have enough prefolds to use them full time (Read more...)
I've got a fun Mom to Mom topic today. When is it time to introduce the concept of "dessert" to your little one? Sure, you can hide it for a while when they're young, they don't see you positioning yourself behind the counter while you scarf down a cookie or a chocolate bar, but you can't keep dessert a secret forever.

Ah potty training. Whether you're anticipating it with a game plan or wanting for it to just magically happen, it's inevitable. You could go with disposable trainers, however, in my experience, even though the books say it can be done in three days, it really takes a few months. There will be accidents. (Read more...)
