Cooper’s 2nd Annual Rockygrass: Clean and Green

As is our annual tradition, all five of us went to Rockygrass today in Lyons, Colorado. This is a yearly bluegrass festival with all kinds of incredible musicians. My husband, an excellent guitar-playing bluegrass musician himself, is in his element. The festival is held along the Saint Vrain River against a backdrop of sandstone cliffs. The venue that hosts Rockygrass every year is called Planet Bluegrass and it’s run in the most sustainable way possible.

Planet Bluegrass takes its green efforts so seriously, they do not have trash cans. If you bring in trash, you take it back out. This encourages folks to bring their food and drinks in recyclable or reusable containers—for instance, we didn’t bring any snack in plastic baggies, we didn’t bring in bottled water, we didn’t  bring in any plastic utensils, and we certainly didn’t bring in any disposable diapers!

Getting Started With the Thirsties Duo All in One

I have put together some packages that will show you what you will need to start cloth diapering – including the accessories. When you are first starting off, it is difficult to know what you will need. The diapers in the packages are enough to last two days between washings.

Thirsties Duo AIO is an All-In-One diaper. This means that the waterproof layer and absorbency are sewn together. There is a tunnel inside the diaper, in which you may add a Hemp Insert if additional absorbency is needed.

I have made two charts. One for size 1 and one for size 2. You will not buy both at the same time. The warranty for your diapers starts from the day of purchase, so only purchase the diapers that your baby can wear now.

Do You Massage Your Baby?

So here’s a little secret: I used to be a certified massage therapist. I actually only practiced massage for two and a half years or so, though because though I enjoyed doing it, I I found it was hard to support myself, pay off of student loans and pay rent because I couldn’t physically do 40 hours of massage a week. I ended up taking a part-time nannying job to supplement my income and a few years later, I found an incredible full-time nannying gig that I couldn’t turn down. And I haven’t done much massage since….except of course, trading shoulder rubs with my husband or massaging my babies.

My favorite type of massage to practice is Swedish. The long sweeping strokes from the end of the appendages, up towards the heart, are supposed to help with circulation, promote relaxation and depending on how much pressure is used, to ease … Read More
