thirsties-year-in-review-2016

The holidays are marked with such vibrant memories we get to December and can hardly believe a whole year has past. Has it been a whole year already? I remember when… One of our favorite things to do at the end of December is look back and remember the last twelve months and celebrate what made the year special. In that spirit here is Thirsties 2016 Year in Review.

2016 was a year full of amazing new products and fabulous cloth diaper prints and colors. Starting us off in January was the release of our Valentine’s print, “Straight to My Heart.”

Thirsties Cloth Diapers

In February 2016 we released our Organic Cotton Wipes and celebrated #ClothCommunityDay.

March was a noteworthy month because we started broadcasting live through Thirsties Facebook Page. #ThirstiesLive is a wonderful opportunity for us to connect with our customers and folks in the cloth diapering industry. We strive to provide … Read More

If you’re anything like me, you’ve pretty much finished your shopping (or run out of allotted Christmas funds, whichever comes first) by this point. I had quite a late start with things this year and wasn’t nearly as organized as I usually am (I start buying in September or earlier), but moving had us stretched in lots of directions. So, here we are, less than a week to go before the “big day” and I’m trying to milk every second out of our holiday fun-making.

But, needless to say, anything I come up with has to be cost effective (or downright free). Luckily, this isn’t an impossible feat. Today, I’m sharing some of our family’s favorite ways to celebrate the holidays on a budget.

Looking at Lights – One of my family’s favorite activities this time of year is to bundle the kiddies up and load up the car to Read More

‘Tis the season to show others how much we care with a token from the heart! Or, at least, that’s what we hope to do.

When you’re a cloth diapering family with a little one at home, so often we end up with gifts that don’t accurately reflect our values and wishes. While we’re grateful for whatever we receive and the thought behind it, getting things like chemical-laden baby toiletries (which we don’t want to throw out, but also don’t want to put on our baby’s skin – or in contact with our cloth diapers) put us in a sticky situation.

Here are some of the items that I have given (or have considered giving) fellow cloth diapering families at Christmastime:

A Cloth Wipe Kit – I have a handful of friends and family who cloth diaper but who have been on the fence about using cloth wipes. This is … Read More


title-family-holiday-books

We’re a family that likes to read. (Well, our one-year-old is juuust getting interested in books, but we’ve read to her brother since he was two weeks old, so it’s old hat to him. I’m a librarian but I give all the credit to my husband – he’s the one who reads most of the time.) In particular, we like to rotate our favorite book titles around through the year. My husband and I get just as excited as our son when a new season or holiday is around the corner to share some new stories.

While the old familiar classics are awesome favorites – ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, the Grinch, The Polar Express – we’ve got a new list developing with some more modern tales.

So, just in case you’d like to try something new with your family, I’m sharing a handful of fun, fresh story ideas, just … Read More

Hey, all! My family and I are in the throes of a big move (the only we’ve ever undertaken with kids and cats in tow) and, boy, do I give credit to all you military families and otherwise multiple-move families out there. My husband and I have said in a sing-song, we’re going crazy time, “this stinks!!!” (but in less G-rated terms) several times over the last weekend.

I thought it’d be helpful to share some of the tips we’ve heard and some that we’ve stumbled over ourselves for anyone who may be dealing with a similar blessing (because, for all the annoyances of a move, it’s usually due to a happy circumstance…at least, it is for us). There are even a couple of Thirsties product shout-outs that made our packing all the easier.

Ask for help. Friends, family, co-workers – whomever you have to bug, don’t be shy … Read More
