30 Day Cloth Diapering Challenge *Day 14*


Welcome to Day 12 of the Cloth Diapering Challenge. The previous posts can be found HERE. This Diaper Challenge came about when Natalie Del Conte did a segment on Eye on Parenting on CBS. She got bombarded with comments and accepted the challenge to try cloth diapers for 30 days. You can view her blog HERE as she has a few posts about how she's doing. I will be posting, trips, stories, pictures and more about cloth diapers as she goes through the challenge. I also hope to help, influence and bust some myths about cloth diapers for other families out there.

I hope everyone had a great holiday! I know we did. We really didn't have any plans set in stone and then we heard that the dinner plans were canceled so I ended up putting together a Thanksgiving dinner in under two hours for just us (hubby, kids and my mom) and it turned out great! We also visited our grandparents house and just wanted to share some pics with ya'll. The first one is the diaper that my grandma put on here... And yes, it was hot on Thanksgiving... but a cold front came in later that evening and the last pic is my girls in their winter get-ups!




And how did everyone do with their challenge? I had my grandmother, Eli's Great-Grandmother changer her diaper! She had lots of opinions. She said (in Spanish) that she wishes they had these when she was raisiing a family, but then she also said that she'd probably lose her mind trying to put the snaps together! She got the hang of pins a whole lot faster.

So another advantage of cloth diapers is keeping their bum warm during these winter months. Like I mentioned before wool diapers keep cool during the summer and warm during the winter! Awesome.

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
