austrialian nappy association 2017 cloth nappy awards

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.

Every year the Australian Nappy Association hosts the Cloth Nappy Awards. This friendly competition influses the Australian cloth diapering community with excitement by highlighting the best cloth diapering brands in Australia.

I have distinct memories of celebrating Independence Day as a kid.

Sometimes it involved going to a parade. (My family was all about marching bands; all 4 kids were Mohawk Marching Mohicans and our grandparents were Marines…marching was kind of in our blood.) Sometimes it involved using sparklers. Sometimes it involved a barbecue. Sometimes it involved trekking out to watch fireworks.

But, what I remember the most was always, ALWAYS watching the Boston Pops concert on TV followed by “Yankee Doodle Dandy” (which my sister and I would inevitably fall asleep on the floor – on a sheet – and have a sleepover to).

Weird the things we remember, huh?

Well, I’m trying to figure out activities that we can try out much like my mom did that turn into traditions that work for our family. Low-key fun that means we can all enjoy the “Happy Birthday, America!” celebration without Read More


#ThirstiesRoadTrip

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

Our daughter is now 19 months old. One of the cool things about this age is that the clothes (and, to an extent, our daughter!) are leaning away from baby-ish stuff. Less onesie-style tops mean regular shirts and tees. Add this to the heat of summer and that means showing off our cloth diapers!


I’ve noticed online that there are differences of opinion about whether or not little ones should go places without pants (ie only in a top and diaper, maybe a pair of sandals). Some think that they’re only babies and there’s no harm in it; others don’t feel kids are “fully dressed” this way and it’s simply not appropriate.

Well, there’s no right or wrong answer. As with most things in parenting, it’s totally your choice and there will always be someone to disagree. Ain’t THAT the truth?

In our case, if we’re heading to visit someone’s Read More
