Are you trading trash for your personal convenience?

Posted by CDB Guest on 3/24/2007 to Green Living

Attack of the Alterna-Moms

Posted by Bryana on 3/19/2007

I read a book review today of Erika Schikel's book, You're not the boss of me: Adventures of a Modern Mom and I couldn't help but feel a certain attachment to this woman who writes, "I sucked at Alterna-Momming," and "I simply didn’t have the conviction required to actually stuff a birthday piñata with raisins and string cheese. I could talk the talk, but I couldn’t walk 10 feet in their Birkenstocks... Realizing that I didn’t fit in with the Traditional Moms or Alternative Moms, I felt lost, unmoored, alone in my convictions. I was just a Slacker Mom with a guilty conscience."

Environment weighs heavily on diaper decisions

Posted by Bryana on 3/18/2007 to Cloth Diaper News

"The environmental movement has finally begun to have an impact on a very different kind of movement.

Although disposables still dominate, diapers have changed. New parents enjoy a wider range of options as they try to balance environmental impacts with other considerations such as cost, convenience and their baby's comfort.

That's nearly 3 percent of all waste — one of the largest percentages for any single type of product."

Most parents that consider cloth diapers for their babies have more questions regarding washing the cloth diapers than anything else. Yes, they are concerned about getting the right sizes and absorbency, but primarily they want to know about upkeep. "You put the cloth diapers WITH POOP ON THEM into the washing machine?" Why yes, yes you do. The same way you put dirty clothes and underclothing into the washing machine.

Cloth diapers and car seats...

"Before we made our decision to use cloth diapers instead of disposables, we talked to a lot of other couples and researched the topic.

My mother always used cloth diapers, and as the oldest of six children, I’m used to changing cloth diapers and I know how to wash them. My husband said he’s more than willing to try, as he doesn’t know the difference between the two.

No seriously, changing cloth diapers really IS easy

Posted by Bryana on 3/6/2007 to Cloth Diaper Videos

So, recently I've written about how easy it is to change a cloth diaper. In fact, I went as far *gasp* as to say it is JUST AS EASY to change a cloth diaper as it is to change a disposable diaper ... say it isn't so!

Cloth diapers are as easy to change as a disposable diaper

Posted by Bryana on 3/4/2007 to Cloth vs. Disposables

There is a myth that has perpetuated itself far too long – the myth that somehow disposable diapers are easier than cloth diapers. The myth has sustained itself from the mouth of our grandmothers and their horror stories of dunking, washing, wringing, and pinning cloth diapers.

Holistic moms raise their kids with cloth diapers

Posted by Bryana on 3/3/2007 to Cloth Diaper News
"Once a month, parents interested in what are called holistic parenting lifestyles -- back-to-natural things from organic foods to cloth diapers -- meet in the room in the basement of the Bethlehem (Pa.) Area Public Library.
