Brownies, Birthdays and Pin Boards – Oh my!
January 19, 2012 11:47 am | by

This morning, I delivered some amazing brownies to my children’s school. Today is the monthly teacher appreciation lunch and it is third grade’s turn to host. My son’s class was responsible for dessert. The moment I read the e-mail request for food, I knew exactly how I had to express my extreme gratitude to these teachers who bless me with six hours of quiet each day. These amazing brownies are, in my opinion, the ultimate love language.   What does this have to do with Cotton Babies? Let me tell you…   At Cotton Babies, we LOVE to celebrate birthdays.

Tuesday Giveaway: Sweet Siblings
January 17, 2012 9:29 pm | by

When I first suspected I might be expecting my second child, it was about this time of year, which also happens to be near my husband’s birthday. I secretly purchased a pregnancy test and snuck it into the house. I carefully hid it so he would not discover it before it was time. I waited a few days to take the pregnancy test. As many of you know, waiting any amount of time to take a pregnancy test can be excruciating and seem ten times longer than it truly is. Those few days passed so slowly! The morning of his

In yesterday’s blog post, we asked what your plans are for 2012. It is inspiring to see the range of goals you each have set for yourself. Whether it is writing a book, going back to school, enjoying the every day moments of life, finding creative ways to make your budget stretch further or making changes to diet and exercise for your whole family, each goal will take hard work to see through to completion. This morning I woke knowing I had been tasked with writing a rah-rah, ‘don’t give up’, ‘you can do it’ style blog post. If you

Prepping Your New Cloth Diapers

It has been almost a year since we’ve shared information about how to dry your cloth diapers. In that time, we’ve retired some products and created some new ones. Today, we are updating this information in case you are new to cloth diapering or just needed a reminder.   We get a lot of questions about how to dry diapers. Many of you want to know more specifics about how to safely dry your diapers, especially during the cold, damp winter months. Our basic instructions are “Line-dry covers and diaper shells. Tumble dry inserts, fitteds and prefolds.” Making sure to

As many of you know Cotton Babies works hard to give to those less fortunate. Jenn and Jimmy Labit started Cotton Babies out of a need to provide income for their family. They had to cloth diaper because there was no room for disposables in the budget. Because of those unique roots Cotton Babies has been working to give to projects that our near and dear to our hearts. From time to time you may have heard us talk about the Sheltering Wings Orphanage in Burkina Faso, Africa. Cotton Babies regularly supports this organization with cloth diapers and funding for

Cloth 201: Benefits of a Stay Dry Layer
January 7, 2012 2:43 am | by

Most of us started our cloth diapering journey with one basic style of diaper, whether it was a pocket, prefold with cover, or an all-in-one style. As you gain confidence and learn more about the variety of fabrics and styles, you may begin to branch out and try new things. One of our favorite problem solving solutions at Cotton Babies is stay dry fabric. What is stay dry fabric? If you have a bumGenius 4.0, you have a type of stay dry fabric! The top inside layer of the pocket, the one that touches your baby’s skin, is suede cloth,

Recovering from the Holidays
January 5, 2012 2:09 am | by

I’m feeling a bit of post-holiday hangover. Not the type of hangover you may have experienced in college, but rather the kind of hangover that happens when you look around and find yourself asking “Now what?” The holidays can be filled with parties, gatherings, travel, fun, gifts and indulgent foods. But in the days that follow, families often begin to feel the effects that all those changes from the norm bring: bedtimes and nap times get pushed around; well meaning family members feed all types of decadent, sweet treats to your little ones; excitement builds and then crashes. When all

Tuesday Giveaway: All I Want for Christmas
December 27, 2011 12:18 pm | by

Recently, Jennifer Labit, owner of Cotton Babies and creator of bumGenius, Flip and Econobum, shared her Christmas wish list on her blog: Christmas is a fun season of the year, but I’m not a big “stuff” person. My idea of Christmas fun would actually be a large dumpster out in front of my house so I can “de-stuff”. I always get people asking about what I want for Christmas though, so this year, I’m taking the proverbial “bull by the horns” and just putting it out there for everyone to read. For Christmas, all I want is your help in
