Happy April, guys! Do you know what that means? It’s Earth Month. And when it’s Earth Month, that means it’s time for the #MakeClothMainstream Challenge!

It may sound obvious, but the general idea of the challenge is to broaden people’s awareness of the awesomeness of cloth diapers. The main event is to bring on some cloth newbies (both high profile and general public) to give fluff a try for three weeks (and, hopefully, beyond). The ambassadors who are selected for the challenge post to social media, YouTube, and blogs to let folks know how their journey goes. And, the fact that our beloved Thirsties is one of many excited sponsors behind all the #makeclothmainstream efforts warms our hearts, doesn’t it?

There have been tears, and will be more, but we’re so, so lucky that my husband’s mother is taking care of our little girl, just like she has for our son. For many families going back to work after maternity/paternity leave means using cloth diapers at daycare.

I thought it’d be fun to talk about cloth diapering and your sitter (whether it’s a relative, family friend, or daycare). I’ve already talked about the fact that CDing didn’t work with our son, but I’m dedicated to it this time around. One of the reasons it failed? We didn’t want to bother our MIL with one more worry. Not only had she not cloth diapered her sons back in the day (which, for some reason, fascinates me), but our son had bad tummy … Read More

Fun Spring

Happy Spring, everyone! In our neck of the woods, winter has been pretty…non-wintry. Here in upstate New York, we’ve had maybe one not-too-bad storm TOTAL (compared to a dozen or two), and while we’ve got some chilly temperatures this week, there’s no sign that spring isn’t well on its way. Woohoo!

So, with more sunshine and spring breezes ahead, I thought I’d share some simple, fun activities to celebrate it with your little ones.
