mother's day gift guide

  Don’t get me wrong, you should ALWAYS get the mother of your children flowers on Mother’s Day. Since flowers don’t last forever, I tend to buy affordable ones from Trader Joe’s or a local Farmer’s Market. I avoid the mark-ups and delivery fees that come with going through a florist and am able to invest my savings into a thoughtful gifts that will last longer. Here’s a couple of ideas to fit any budget this Mother’s Day: Framed Kid Artwork What’s Mother’s Day without a homemade gift? Help extend the life of Junior’s artwork by displaying it a frame

Our baby and fur baby are almost exactly three years apart. Asher came along when Melvin (the pup) was just three and it’s been an adjustment since. Melvin was pretty good when it came to getting used to Asher being around, but I can tell he isn’t always interested in playing when Asher is eager to have some fun. On occasion he will entertain Asher, but Melvin is pretty laid back and would rather be napping on the couch or hiding out somewhere.  Melvin is a smaller dog, a Shih-Tzu, and his demeanor is just easy. He’s a very well-behaved

econobum giveaway

  It’s Real Diaper Week, which means we’re celebrating all the benefits cloth diapers have to offer! As you know, cloth diapers are a practical and affordable option, but many families still turn to disposables. To help promote cloth diapers and introduce more parents to reusable options, we are giving away five Econobum Trial Packs. By spreading the word and putting more cloth diapers on our babies, we will be able to make the shift from disposables — together. Econobum is our most economical system and is a great way to get started with cloth. The Econobum Trial Pack features a one-size diaper cover and

 
Real Dad Talk: How I Became a Babywearing Dad
April 21, 2016 6:30 pm | by
babywearing dad

  I was first exposed to babywearing through the movie “The Hangover.” And to this day, every time I see a dad with his baby strapped to him, I think of Zach Galifianakis’ character Alan. I always chuckle to myself because seeing his character with a baby carrier brought a comedic cool to men participating in the practice. Last summer, when my wife and I were in the market for a baby carrier (we welcomed our first son, Everett, in October), I couldn’t help but do my best Alan impersonation while testing out an ERGObaby 360 at our local store

  When you decide you want to cloth diaper, it can be a bit scary when you’re starting to build your cloth stash. But don’t worry. I have some tips to make it a little bit easier! Buy BEFORE baby. The average stash consists of at least 24 diapers. If you can start buying one cloth diaper per week around the 15th week of your pregnancy, you’ll be set! Buy diaper packages. You can purchase bumGenius diapers in sets of 6, 12, or 24. Just pick out the style of diaper you’d like and your colors/prints. Sometimes, they’ll even be on

  The countdown is ON! Real Diaper Week kicks off Saturday, April 23, and it all begins with the Great Cloth Diaper Change! Each year, we get so excited about Real Diaper Week because we get to partner with parents, retailers and manufacturers around the globe to spread more awareness around cloth diapering. Cloth diapers are a practical way to save money and reduce landfill waste, but not only that, they’re a solution to a growing problem in today’s society: diaper need. That’s why we think it’s important to share the benefits of cloth diapers and show more families that they are an everyday option.
