Indoor Winter Entertainment
January 12, 2011 6:01 am | by

Months ago, when we first asked for topics you wanted us to discuss in our Real Mom Talk series indoor winter entertainment was one of the requested topics. Your winters may be long or short, depending on where you live. Regardless of geography or weather, there are occasions where you may be stuck indoors for longer than you (or your children) like. During pregnancy through the toddler and preschool stages, it seems indoor days are more frequent than at other stages of life. Here are a few of my favorite indoor activities that don’t require anything more than a quick

Looking for a beautiful, yet practical, baby gift? This week at Cotton Babies, some exciting new styles of our popular Robeez soft-soled baby shoes.

Jenn’s Thoughts: Pooping Day?
January 6, 2011 5:14 pm | by

Do we have any poop experts who read this blog? If so, I need your help.   We have pooping day in our house. It’s usually a day that we pick Elsie up from the babysitter and find out that she productively filled four diapers that day. Every single child will go at least once, maybe twice, and almost always during dinner. Sometimes, Jimmy and I will have a moment of shared hilarity when the last child finally yells for help wiping their bottom. Other times, like today, it’s not so funny. I’m ready to call the pediatrician and ask

I Failed Cloth Diapering
January 5, 2011 12:09 pm | by

Confession time: I failed cloth diapering… at least my first attempt that is. When my twins were newborns, money was tight, really tight. During an online search, I was introduced to the idea of cloth diapering. Hours of internet research later, I knew this was what was going to save my family’s budget. I shared with my husband, who was indifferent to the idea, but definitely wasn’t willing to invest the hundreds of dollars required for start up. I devised a brilliant idea to eBay off some extra stuff around the house to make enough to buy a few start

Happy 2011 from the Cotton Babies team! New year inspires fresh beginnings and lots of promise. Every year our Cotton Babies team spends the first work day of the new year the same way, with inventory day.

Do you make resolutions? What are you hoping to change this year? Are you working on changing old habits or establishing new better habits? Yesterday, Jenn shared this in the

The Top 10 Cloth Diaper Industry Events of 2010 Analysis and opinion by Jennifer L. Labit, owner of Cotton Babies, Inc. Creator of bumGenius, Flip & Econobum.     10. For several years, the cloth diaper market has been primarily work at home mom based. Throughout the year, a number of retailers and several manufacturers (including Thirsties) were sold to growth-minded investors.
