Did you know that our Family Fitness is reaching its six months anniversary? It's crazy that we have weekly blog posts focused on everything health and fitness for your family.
I've loved writing this series for you and it's kept me honest about my own health and fitness which is good when you need a little kick in the pants to get out of bed in the morning. (Read more...)
Travel sizes and sample sizes are often the way that we get to know a product before we buy it. Then you move on to buying the full size bottles or products.
However there are several reasons that keeping samples on hand makes sense and can save the day when you're in need.
It was a couple of weeks after our daughter was born that it suddenly dawned on me that my husband and I hadn't had an adult conversation since we'd first laid eyes on her. We'd been so busy discussing nursing schedules, colic, and the best way to get her to sleep that having “our” time just didn't occur to us. Not having much money and being very over-protective and hesitant to leave our daughter with anyone else, we decided to do as much as we could to rectify this situation without having to be separated from our little girl or having to fork over our grocery budget to a baby sitter.
Ready for another great weekly Feed Your Stash Friday giveaway? This week you can win (2) Tots Bots Cloth Diapers!

“I’m sorry but why on Earth would anyone choose to use diaper pins?” This is what I thought to myself tonight as I was thinking about my blogging friends that are participating in Dirty Diaper Laundry’s 3rd Annual Flats Challenge. Diaper pins are so archaic, right?
I wore my daughter regularly until she was at least 18 months old. Even then, I wore her once in awhile--especially when she was particularly cranky. It was something I absolutely cherished. I loved having her cuddled close enough to me that I could feel her breathing and kiss her downy, soft head, but also have my hands free. It was also a good way to keep her inside my personal bubble and away from germy hands dying to touch her.
My daughter is now 3 ½ which means it's been 1 ½ years since I've changed a diaper. I have to admit, I miss it, especially when I see things about the Great Cloth Diaper Change or Dirty Diaper Laundry's Flats and Handwashing Challenge going on. This spring marks the second that I won't be participating in any fun cloth diaper challenges, but I am definitely looking forward to experiencing them all again with a little boy this time next year.
Cloth for baby, we love it and it makes perfect sense, but why don't more women choose reusable menstrual products for themselves as naturally as they choose the reusables for their child?
Personally I think there are a couple factors why we've chosen throw away tampons and maxi pads most of our lives. (Read more...)

Stains suck! There I said it. Just when you think you're taking great care of your cloth diapers and keeping them stain free...then all the sudden for no apparent reason you've got stains galore!
So how can you wage war on these pesky unwanted cloth diaper stains? Read on and find out!
It's been seven months since we became a family of four, though we still appear to be a family of three because our baby won't be born for another two months. However, when you experience extreme, extended morning sickness, the baby makes his or her arrival sometime between week 4 and week 7 of pregnancy rather than after 9 months. This means that, for my only child, things began to change almost immediately after she heard the news that she was a big sister.
Happy Mother's Day to you from everyone here at DiaperJunction.com!
We wish you the most love filled day you can imagine. Whether it's just a day like any other for you, filled with mundane chores and daily routines, or a day filled with Mother's Day activities, know that you've been blessed with one of the most important jobs on earth. (read more)

For the longest time when I first started cloth diapering I used disposable wipes. I thought cloth wipes would be more difficult and since it was my husband's idea to start cloth diapering I wanted to be successful. I was wrong; cloth wipes weren't more difficult than disposable wipes. Actually, cloth wipes were easier because I could throw them into my dry pail with my diapers. When I was using disposable wipes the whole process was so annoying...(read more)

This month's installment of Carry of the Month from Babywearing International of Hampton Roads talks about Soft Structured Carriers (SSCs). There are dozens of SSCs on the market, but there is basic safety information that holds true regardless of the specific brand.

I know of many people who shun cloth diapers because they're scared of poop, and they choose disposables because they feel that they'll deal with less poop that way. I've changed many cloth diapers and many disposables and I've come to an important conclusion: if you're changing diapers, you are going to deal with poop. You'll see it, you'll touch it, you'll smell it and you aren't going to deal with it anymore with cloth diapers than you are with paper ones.
Hindsight is ALWAYS 20/20. As a mother of twins, one thing I can say I FAILED at was babywearing. It just didn't occur to me that you could babywear twins and man, my life would have been so much easier had I discovered that you could.
Oh the screaming baby. What is suppose to bringing so much joy to your life and home is suddenly doing anything but that when your wee one suffers from colic. Many brand new parents feel as though it's something they're doing wrong, or a plethora of other things, when nothing could be further from the truth. Just try hard to keep your wits about you and remember that it does end. If you're new to the world of parenting, here's what ya need to know :)

In one week this Saturday I will be running my first half marathon. A year ago if you had asked me if I would ever run a race I would?ve laughed in your face. Yet here I am not only training for a half marathon but for the most part I love the goal that?s at the end of this thing. The training has been intense; on Sunday I was out for two and a half hours with the sun beating down on me. It was not a smart move to forget the sunscreen that day. So what do you do if you want to start running? Here are my tips:
The Family Focus series allows us to spotlight a cloth-diapering family that makes our online community so strong. This month's Family Focus is on the Limato family of Norfolk, Virginia. Jessica & Jamie have been married for twelve years and have three children.
