It's a party!

So I'm new to the world of Twitter Parties, as proven by the first two I was ever at I had all my tweets as private and couldn't figure out why nobody saw my posts, responded to my questions, etc.... however, there is a new party coming around in a few days!

December 14th, to be exact.

Cloth Diaper Blog is having a twitter party, and you could win an XBOX, Rumparooz, and more!


RSVP for the twitter party here

Covers and Flats/Prefolds

So I have ventured out of the safety of my "pockets" and gotten some new types of fluff. I have 1 econobum (with 3 pre-folds), 1 Flip w/stay dry insert, 1 bummis, 1 thirsties duo, and a dozen osocozy flats. None of these are prepped, however, as I'm awaiting some fluffy mail and didn't want to do multiple preps. (yes, I realize that I have 2 preps here since the econobum prefolds have to be washed separately). I have a blueberry cover and a rumparooz cover somewhere in fluffy mail land, so I figured I'd just wait and do it all at once.

Unfortunately, I'm a bit hesitant to use the flats and prefolds. Not that they haven't worked brilliantly for others, as they most certainly have... but it's just new. I am used to my pockets (and I love them!), but I know that when the next little one comes along someday, the OS pockets I have might not cut it for the first couple of weeks. Better to learn a new type of diaper now than when you're sleep deprived due to a new bundle of joy, eh?

With any luck, everything will be ace and I won't have any issues with the covers. If I'm really lucky, my hubby will like using them too! He is great with the pocket diapers (I stuff them in advance), but he's not too good about remembering that the aplix diapers have laundry tabs, and they should be stuck to those upon removal from our little one. I end up finding it stuck to the inside of a different diaper most times. The biggest challenge with using cloth (with my husband, not the baby!) has been him getting in the habit of setting the dirty diapers on top of the diaper pail. Yes, he stacks them on top most times. It could be completely empty and he'll just stack away. Oy.

Introduction

A brief introduction for what probably won't be an active blog so much as a way to contact me if you have questions or need some advice with your little one. While I don't claim to be a know-it-all when it comes to children, I might be able to guide you to the right place to get your answer at the very least.

About me: I'm a mother of one that works full time. My little one is exclusively breast-fed (EBF), and I pump to supply him with milk while I'm not home. I'm still in the experimental stages of baby-wearing, as I haven't found anything but the ErgoBaby to use (which I love, but still want to find other things to use to help me get more done around the house!). I'm also a cloth diapering mama, and love talking about my little one's fluff!

I'm hoping to do baby-led weaning (BLW) with my little one, but that is an adventure that has yet to start.... coming up soon though! :)
