I’ve been buggered by Jenn and others to write posts on the blog for a long time, but I didn’t want to have to figure out what to write about while staying somewhat on topic. So the obvious solution was to write about random things in the warehouse. Warehouse roulette! To make it fun and very random, I put all of the warehouse locations in a box, mixed it up and drew a location. I should play the lottery. I can hear the eyes rolling in the back of your heads and the calls of “suuuure”, “faker”, “fixed!”, “liar
Yesterday, for Valentine’s Day, Cotton Babies announced the creation of a new cloth diaper bank. “Share The Love” was created by Cotton Babies for the purpose of distributing donated, re-loveable cloth diapers to needy St. Louis families. Eligible families who complete the application process and agree to the loan terms may qualify to receive a set of cloth diapers to help them care for their child through a tough time. According to a recent study, one in three parents in the United States is choosing between buying diapers and providing certain essentials (food, utilities, or child care) for their family.
We have a lot to celebrate this week at Cotton Babies. Jenn and Jimmy’s daughter, Elsie, turned 3 years old yesterday. Join us to celebrate at her Birthday Party and Spring Fashion show at our retail stores this Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon. Speaking of fashion, did you know one of the hot new colors for spring fashion is one of the newest colors of bumGenius cloth diapers? We were thrilled to see Sassy (aka Tangerine Tango) on Pantone’s list of hot colors for spring 2012 for both men and women. To share the party with all our online
Warning: This blog post could cause instant baby fever. Last fall, when the Cotton Babies team travelled to the ABC Kids Expo, we could not get enough of this new stroller and couldn’t wait to get it into our stores and online for our customers. Even I said to Jenn, “Wow, this is so awesome it makes me almost want to have another baby…. almost.” (It’s an awesome stroller, but uninterrupted sleep is really awesome in my book.) Why is it such an amazing stroller? I’m so glad you asked. The 4moms Origami stroller is a power folding stroller.
Do you ever painstakingly make dinner and set it on the table, proud of your effort, only to have one (or more) of your kids look at the meal, look up at you, look back at the meal, back at you and then announce, “I don’t like [fill in hated food of the moment here]?” Or how about at the end of a busy day when you’re already daydreaming about putting pajamas on after the kids have gone to bed and one of your kids looks at you and says, “I’m hungry, what’s for dinner?” and you realize that you
Yesterday on this blog, Jessica shared how using cloth wipes with your cloth diapers can save you even more money. So today, we wanted to get a few lucky customers started down the journey to saving even more with a starter set of bumGenius cloth wipes, bumGenius Bottom Cleaner and a bumGenius 4.0 cloth diaper. Jenn shared on Pinterest why she loves the bumGenius cloth wipes: “I can’t say enough good things about these flannel baby wipes. I have a drawer full of them in the kitchen. Now that we’ve moved beyond the baby stage, they get used for faces,
A better question would be, why not? You’re already using cloth diapers, for a wide variety of reasons – environmental, cost savings, convenience, and keeping chemicals away from your baby’s sweet tush. Cloth wipes take it one step further. One of the biggest reasons moms choose cloth diapers is to save money. Let’s face it, babies are expensive! Wipes are a small expense compared to some of the bigger items babies need, but every little bit counts. So how much would using cloth wipes save you? The average price of a baby wipe is $0.03/wipe*. Assuming a total of 5,340
Roses are red, violets are blue. Buy one Flip Cover, get another one, too! Ah, love. Like all hopeless romantics, Flip covers need love too. So this Valentine’s season, when you want to give your heart to any Flip cover in Zinnia or Noodle, you can also provide love and companionship to another Flip cover in Zinnia or Noodle — for free! How can you play Cupid for two (or more) heartsick Flip covers? We thought you’d never ask. From now until Feb. 19, all Flip covers in Zinnia or Noodle are Buy 1, Get 1 Free. Love can move
Hi. I’m Jimmy (@jimmylabit), Jenn’s (@jenniferlabit, Jennifer Labit, Jenn Labit) other half. I’ve been buggered for a long time to start writing blog posts again. It only took 4 years, but I finally wrote another one last week about the almighty diaper sprayer. Now I’m being told I shouldn’t wait another 4 years to write the next blog post. So, here I am. Again. The biggest problem with writing blog posts on a regular basis is figuring out what to write about. I have a whole story with arcs, sub-plots, intrigue, deceit, romance and sci-fi special effects
At this point in my cloth diapering journey, I think that I can say that I’ve tried almost all the major categories of diapers: prefolds with covers, All-In-Ones, All-In-Twos, hybrids… but my favorite is definitely pockets! Almost my entire stash now consists of various pocket diapers. What is a pocket diaper?A pocket diaper is a diaper-shaped, waterproof shell sewn to a fabric inner. One edge is left open, creating a pocket. The pocket is then stuffed with one or more inserts. Inserts can be made of any material – microfiber, cotton, hemp, or a blend of materials. When the diaper
