The Australian Nappy Association (ANA) is an organization that, “works towards markedly increasing reusable nappy use in Australia by supporting and educating key members of the cloth nappy industry and potential users. The ANA is the preeminent source of information on reusable nappies and their numerous benefits for parents, caregivers and government agencies.” Like the Real Diaper Association here in the United States, the ANA is an excellent resource for cloth diapering education, advocacy, and support.

I don’t know about you, but some of my favorite childhood memories are of family roadtrips. Whether it is a day trip or an epic cross country drive, roadtrips are a great way to captiolize on the best things about summer, family and fun. This is what Thirsties new print, Road Trip, is all about!
At Thirsties, we believe anyone can cloth diaper anywhere; so to celebrate next week’s release of Road Trip, and to spread cloth diapering awareness, we’re hosting the #ThirstiesRoadTrip Challenge. We want to cover the map and social media with cloth diapering goodness! Cloth diapering families, bloggers, and retailers are invited to take selfies with Thirsties cloth diapers by their favorite local landmarks or simply add the #ThirstiesRoadTrip logo to one of their favorite family travel pics and post it on social media. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #ThirstiesRoadTrip and remember by participating in … Read More

The tribe of cloth diapering families is a wonderfully unique one. This community of parents and care givers daily step outside the “norm,” choosing products that are better for their children and the environment. The #ThirstiesRealLife Photo Contest celebrates this tribe, the fabulous diapers they use, and the little ones who make this stage of life so special!
Here’s how the photo contest works. Thirsties fans capture photos of our products in their “real” lives. Then they share their images on Instagram and/or in The Thirsties Groupies Official Fan Chat on Facebook using the hashtag #ThirstiesRealLife. Every Thursday we select one or two images as that week’s feature photos. At the end of the month, these feature photos are then finalists in the #ThirstiesRealLife Photo Contest. Fans select the winning photo by voting for their favorite images on IG and Facebook.
Here are the March 2017 finalists and winning image:… Read More

Maybe you’ve got a newborn at home. Maybe you’ve just gotten over a 2-week family bout of the stomach flu (like in our household). Or maybe it’s just the day-in, day-out craziness of schedules and bathtimes and keeping the house presentable and work responsibilities and, well, life.
As amazing as it is, parenting is just tough sometimes.
These are the times that I have to remind myself to ease up. Sometimes we make things more stressful than we need to, and sometimes we simply need to make things easier on ourselves when life throws us curveballs.
So, today I’m sharing some of my favorite ways to do just that – ways that I cut myself some slack while I try to regain that equilibrium again. Maybe they’ll help you when things get stressful.
Use (or find!) a favorite essential oil to relax (or motivate). I have a favorite, relaxing … Read More
