Baby Shower Gifts for Non-Cloth Diapering Parents

I don’t know about you, but I love buying baby shower gifts! Buying for a fellow cloth diapering mom-to-be can be easy (and fun) because it gives you a reason to #buyallthediapers! But what do you buy from your favorite cloth diaper retailer for the mama that doesn’t want to cloth diaper? Here are a few super affordable gift ideas! A Wet Bag. Most mom-to-be’s don’t think of this, but wet bags can be handy even if they’re not cloth diapering! They can be a lifesaver in extreme situations, such as “poopsplosions” when you’re out and about with baby.   JuJuBe Be Quick Bag. This is one of

 
My Ideal Baby Registry

Ideal Baby Registry

After having my first baby, I learned a lot of things – like what baby products worked and what I wish I would have registered for. With my second baby now on the way, I’m shopping for products that are functional, long lasting and don’t take up a ton of space. Less is more this time around! Here’s my ideal baby registry, including a few of the products I wish I would have registered for with my first! 1. Quality Newborn Sleepers – I bought so many sleepers with my first, but I failed to buy any in a newborn size. Silly, I

 
Introverted Mama Musings

Introverted Mom Musings

Let’s chat for a moment about being a mom and an introvert.  I often feel that in a culture that caters more to extraverted people, it’s a little more difficult for us introverted mamas to chat about our lives.  Talking may not be the easiest thing for us introverts, but there is another way.  Writing, on the other hand, is  has always been by outlet (easier than talking), so let’s start a dialogue about being an introverted mama.  Before Kids I used my mornings to recharge and get ready for my days full of children and parents.  I used to teach early childhood special

 
Back to School: The Second Time

Back to School

This summer flew by! One day, we’re hanging out by the pool and the next thing I know, it’s time for the kids to go back to school! This may be our second year of “school life,” but I have to say – it does not get any easier leaving them on that very first day.  This year is a little more of an adjustment for me because I not only have a child in full-day kindergarten, but also one preschool half the day. I must admit – my routine is starting off pretty hectic. I’m basically a chauffeur half the day, driving back and

 
My First Reaction to Cloth Diapers

My First Reaction to Cloth Diapers

When I had my first child, I didn’t even know that cloth diapers were still a thing. So of course, there was no question in my mind whether or not I would use disposable diapers. It wasn’t until my second pregnancy that I discovered cloth diapers still existed. You see, my sister-in-law was also pregnant at the time and after some research, she made the decision to cloth her first baby. I, however, still had the mindset of using disposable diapers. It’s just what you did, or so I thought. So what was my first reaction to cloth diapers? “Ummmmm that’s disgusting. You’re going

10 Signs You're a Cloth Diapering Family

How do you know you’re a cloth diapering family? Here are 10 signs you can look out for! 10.)  You use coconut oil on EVERYTHING! 9.)  You look for baby shirts when you shop for your baby, not onesies. 8.)  Wet bags…. Wet bags everywhere. You found numerous ways to use them so you’re *almost* wet bag obsessed. 7.)  You can’t help but play “disposable or cloth” while at the playground. Can you guess what type of diaper the other babies have on? 6.)  Your mind goes to cloth-diaper related things when people start talking in “code.”    CD= Most people talk about actual

 
Reacting to My Fourth Pregnancy

Reacting to My Fourth Pregnancy

It was 5:00 am on Christmas morning. My husband was sleeping, blissfully unaware of the anxiety I was feeling as I laid awake next to him. I had just taken a pregnancy test and it was positive. No, this was not my first pregnancy test rodeo, but seeing that little blue line caused an old, familiar, mild panic to rise up in my body. Reality started sinking in; I was about to experience my fourth pregnancy. The evening before, Christmas Eve, is when 2 of my siblings joyously announced their pregnancies to our family. Which caused me to pause, re-count

 
Summer Playdates

playdates

Summer may be coming to an end, but there’s still time to fit in some outdoor fun! Throughout this summer, I had to think about what I was going to do everyday to entertain all four of my children. For me, it’s a balance of finding budget-friendly activities that will entertain all age ranges of my girls, and keep us away from our life-sucking devices. So here is my list of summer playdates with older and younger children. Take a Nature Walk. Head to your local state park and pick a path. Your child can create a nature journal and take sketches of his findings or pretend he is

 
Planning for Baby #2

Planning for Baby #2

Planning for #2 — We’d been trying for baby #2 for around a year or so now, and as soon as we found out that we were expecting, the “OH MY GOODNESS WE ARE HAVING ANOTHER BABY” mode kicked in. Since then, I’ve felt just about every emotion imaginable thanks to those ever-changing pregnancy hormones. It’s been almost four years since I had a baby, so I’m trying to take things slow, enjoy my time with my little guy and still prepare for our newest arrival! Here are a few things I’ve learned so far in planning for this second little

 
Review: Earth Mama Angel Baby Wellness Spray

Wellness Spray

Morning sickness in my second pregnancy has been quite terrible compared to my first pregnancy. I remember experiencing it with my first, but this time around it’s been magnified. As soon as I hit the six-week mark, keeping anything down, including water, was nearly impossible. After about 10 long weeks of feeling incredibly ill, dropping weight and having no energy I’m happy to report that the morning sickness has somewhat subsided and I actually feel human again! I tried everything under the sun to combat the nausea and I must say that the Morning Wellness Spray from Earth Mama Angel Baby has
