It’s been incredibly busy in the Cotton Babies office this week. In addition to our product launch Tuesday, we’ve also been preparing for the ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas.

I’m a good mom
September 30, 2010 4:50 pm | by

This morning, a stranger told me I was a good mom and it made my day.   Each morning, I wait with my boys for the school bus. Our neighborhood is filled with early morning walkers, most past their parenting years. One of my sons was on the ground investigating something on the sidewalk. A walker approached and I shouted, “MOVE!” The polite walker said, “Oh it’s okay.” Not wanting to seem an overbearing mom, I replied, “We’re trying to teach him awareness of others.”   Little did I know that statement would spark a five minute conversation. I discovered

Work Life Balance
September 28, 2010 11:50 am | by

Balance. Now there’s a loaded word. Over the past year (who am I kidding it’s been well over 10 years) I’ve been searching for the definition and/or execution of “balance.” Don’t hold your breath, I don’t have many answers. What I have discovered is that for me, balance is a living breathing organism that is in constant motion and change. Kind of like a child. Just when I think I’ve figured out how to keep some kind of balance in my life, something happens- someone develops a severe food allergy, the car breaks down, unexpected visitors show up at the

Wow… Calm Down Everyone!
September 23, 2010 6:20 pm | by

So I’ve been reading forums, facebook, twitter and emails all day. I’m grateful for all the wonderful people who have sent me supportive messages… God love you, really, you’re wonderful. So, I’m going to step back a few months for this post and give you all a little back story. When we launched the bumGenius 3s… it was no big deal… relatively pain free… accepted well by the industry and customers alike. The 3s were a functionality change, no big color splash… but a big assembly, pattern and production change. After the 3s came out, I promised myself that I

It’s All About You
September 23, 2010 9:18 am | by

We’ve read a lot of opinions on the internet lately about how we share information piece by piece. We would like to explain why we do this. It’s all about YOU!   Our new Artist Series has been years in the making. It takes time to blaze new trails. It takes time to create, design and produce diapers. There are many steps between a new idea and a diaper in your hands.   We know that many of our customers are just as excited as we are about new products. We want to share our excitement with you. We want

Making Mom Friends
September 22, 2010 9:48 am | by

A few weeks ago, a long time friend of mine posted this video on her Facebook wall: While I chuckled at the extreme nature of the characters, my heart broke for my dear friend. I recall feeling very isolated after my first child was born. It was difficult to find and make friends. It’s a balance to share your parenting beliefs without appearing judgmental. Each baby, parent, family and lifestyle is different. As moms, it’s a careful dance when we meet new friends. With my journalistic background and training, I approach a potential new friend with an appreciation that every

Baby Wearing: Should we offer safety checks?
September 20, 2010 11:03 am | by

We noticed comments on the Cotton Babies Facebook page this weekend about a picture posted of a mama wearing an older baby on her back using a stretchy wrap. She was shopping our Cloth Diaper Garage Sale this weekend and clearly enjoying her day… Understandably, a few people were very concerned about the way she was wearing her baby. Don’t go look, to protect her privacy we deleted the photo. However, this raised a pretty hairy topic this morning that I thought we should discuss with you. The way the baby was being worn isn’t recommended by the manufacturer. It
