Mom to Mom: The Hospital Bag(s)

Posted by Becca on 7/29/2013 to Mom Madness

At 36 weeks pregnant, I decided it was time to pack our hospital bags. I've been getting Braxton Hicks with this pregnancy since somewhere around 20 weeks, and with each passing week, they get stronger and more frequent. At 36 weeks, there were times that these contractions were pretty convincing too! Besides, I'm an over-planner. If I can be more than ready far ahead of time, I'm happy. There's nothing I hate more than not being prepared, and I'm usually more prepared than necessary.

Mom-to-Mom: A Story About Contractions

Posted by Becca on 7/22/2013 to Mom Madness

So, I was thirty six weeks pregnant and it was a Saturday. School hadn't quite let out yet. I still had two more teacher days awaiting me in the coming week so I was still in my get-stuff-done mode once a weekend came. My three year old and I got up bright and early that morning to visit a huge baby yard sale that happens semi-annually in our area. I had one goal in mind: to brave the crowds, parking lot, and endless walking to find baby boy clothing, because after Bunny, we had nothing suitable for a little boy. After spending about $30 more or less, and walking the football field length of the community yard sale a couple of times, my daughter and I came home with enough clothes to fill my son's empty drawers and keep him clothed during the first few months of his life. However, my "To Do" list didn't stop there. There was still so much to do! We washed, dried and sorted the new clothing, along with our regular clothes. I did some sorting and re-sorting in my son's nursery.

One product many don't think there's a suitable natural alternative of is a bug repellant that actually works.

Reusable Swim Diaper Care and Use

Posted by Bert on 7/18/2013 to Cloth Diaper How-To
swim diaperSwim diapers, they're cute and serve a very specific purpose - they keep the poop contained. If you're on the fence about cloth diapering you should look into a reusable swim diaper. I have many non-cloth diapering friends that use swim diapers. There is a difference in some of the swim diapers that we carry. Some, like our iPlay products, are able to hold some pee into a padded lining sewn within the diaper while others, like our Imse Vimse, simply allow the pee to just flow easily off of the diaper and onto the unsuspecting parent holding the baby. (Yes, that parent was me about three weeks ago.
