Memorial Day is often called “the unofficial start of summer.” Well, before I get into some fun summer ideas, I’m sure we would all like to take this chance to send out a thanks to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms and country. It simply can’t be overstated, and those who serve, knowing full well that they are being asked to make sacrifices big and small, deserve our pride and gratitude today and everyday.

(Can you tell that my grandparents – both of whom were Marines – helped raise us? They were the BEST.)

That said, I’ve been seeing lots of parents and teachers on social media talking about summer lately. Some are finishing school left and right; others (like myself) are still toiling away well into June.

One of our favorite blogs, in addition to our fabulous Thirsties blog of course (wink, wink), is Padded Tush Stats.

Along with the sheer joy and excitement of having a newborn comes a million questions. Where should baby sleep? Is that a “hungry cry” or an “I’m hurt” cry? Breastfeed or bottle feed? Did I put the car seat in correctly?

And one question we in the cloth diapering community hear lots: Should I cloth diaper my newborn or wait until he/she is bigger?

While it’s totally up to personal preference, there really isn’t any reason not to cloth diaper from the start. With our second child, we started shortly after returning home from the hospital, but many people are able to begin even when still in the hospital!

But, admittedly, it can be a bit scary. Cloth diapering a newborn can be trickier than cloth diapering an older baby. Between runnier stools and more frequent urination, skinny little thighs, and an umbilical cord stump, it can be confusing and … Read More
