Another Giveaway :)

I found this really cool giveaway at: . I really recommend dropping by her blog and looking at all the great info. While your there look for this giveaway. TALK ABOUT AWESOME

I know I'm not the only mom out there who cloth diapers their baby but can't seem to find a decent nighttime diaper that you don't have to change through the night. I was resigned to the fact that I would never find something suitable for my heavy wetter but I did! Mommies, let me introduce you to LooRoos!

LooRoos is owned by Janice, who knows more than a thing or two about cloth diapers AND design. Janice is a design school graduate and she combined experience with cloth diapering her own children, with her education and with the desire to give parents a healthy and quality cloth diaper and LooRoos was born.
Together with her partner, an all-in-one, fitted diaper has been developed, a long way from the original diapers Janice made for her children. The LooRoos {AIO} All in One diaper consists of several layers. Starting with 100% cotton flannel, next to baby’s bottom, 55% hemp – 45% cotton fleece layer, 55% hemp – 45% cotton terry soakers, 100% Birdseye cotton, and finally a layer of water resistant PUL. These diapers are offered in both a snap and Velcro closure option. LooRoos also offers a 100% organic cotton diaper with both closure options. They recently introduced pocket diapers made with waterproof PUL and micro-fleece to keep baby dry. Each pocket diaper comes with one 55% hemp/ 45% cotton fleece insert for absorbency. You can also find 55% hemp- 45% cotton nursing pads, and travel bags.

For review, we tried the AIO and a pocket diaper. I've never been able to cloth diaper Aidan at nighttime because to me it wasn't worth him needing to be changed multiple times during the night just to avoid using disposables. Mama needs her sleep too! I was hesitant about trying a cloth diaper at night because I figured I'd be changing him after 3 hours and to me it wasn't worth him waking up from needing to be changed just to avoid using disposable. But surprise surprise the AIO worked! The diaper isn't even bulky! I couldn't believe it!

The pocket diapers are easy to use {the pocket is wide enough for hubby's hands so no excuses to not help stuff anymore!} and wash and dry easily. For being as absorbant as the AIO was, I didn't find it took any longer to dry than my other hemp diapers. The Velcro fasteners make these diapers a cinch to change on wiggly toddlers. However, if you prefer a snap closure you have the choice between snap or velcro.

LooRoos combines style, a fabulous price and a great selection for anyone shopping for cloth diapers! With over 30 cute prints and colors for you to choose from so you can build a fun stash for your little one.

You can't beat the price for LooRoos AIO diapers. They're only $19.95 and if you buy 6, you'll receive a discount of $10.75! Pocket diapers are $17.95 and INCLUDE a hemp/cotton fleece insert! And you always have the choice of snap or Velcro closure no matter the size.


I really want to talk about pocket diapers. I have a few different ones in my stash, one I do not like, but they may have changed it.... Two I love. I just do not have time or energy right now, so stay tuned I will be posting soon.

The Cloth Diaper Whisperer


No its not a diaper. But as I am trying to review things I opened up a new one last night and thought hmmm. BLOG post LOL.
Schick Quattro will be todays discussion
Yesterday I shaved and my blade was well dead. So after I got out of the shower I realized I was out of refill blades for my Venus. I grabbed the Quattro out of the drawer and ripped the packaging open so I can toss it on the shower rack for today's shower. First thing I noticed was a HUGE design flaw. Apparently Schick is in the male market and never really thought before they ventured into the world of woman for this razor. It is metal!!! Metal for a razor that will mostly spend its life in a shower??? Metal and showers do not mix. Now I could be wrong in thinking that this will rust, lets hope so!!! It is 4 blades wrapped in wire. I never get the wire idea. I mean suppose to help me keep from cutting myself? Then how is the blade getting close enough to even shave me smooth? BTW it did not shave silky smooth I have stubble :o( Its a heavy razor, but that is ok, I don't mind the weight. Now the blade ya know the part that you throw away and replace...... Who designed that??? It had to be a computer because I dont see a man or woman being that dumb. It has more openings and nooks that store hair and you can not get them out!! There are openings above the blades at the top that you cant get clean the opposite side of the blades that attaches to the handle thats a nook filled mess. Under the bottom blade is a ridge that holds all the tiny hairs. I tried everything to get the hair out. Its a brand new blade, it has life left in it. But to no avail I could not get it out. It really creeps me out all that old hair in it that I just want to toss the blade, but doesnt that defeat the purpose of not being disposable? I might as well buy a package of disposables they are CHEAPER but worse on the environment. This razor gets 1 star.
If you have advice on cleaning that blade let me know. If you LOVE this razor let me know. If you know of a more earth friendly way to shave than having to toss blades PLEASE let me know.

I would like to start this by saying everything I have is used. I have nothing new, it was all given to me when we found out #3 was on the way and I said this is it. We have started recycling and going green around the house and I hate hate hate how many diapers I was just throwing away I was not going to do it anymore I was done. The trash amount has decreased so much with the recycling, if it was not for the disposables I could just take 1 bag out once a week but with the spoies I was tossing a bag out every night. My reusable grocery store bags I couldnt use them every time I went to the store I had to get some plastic bags for the daily diaper tossing. I could no longer do it. Such a waste, such a shame to the environment such a counteractive thing to be doing for everything I was now doing right.
I will say I love my bamboo fitteds. I have Bambineo. Aplix closure and an additional soaker pad on this diaper. I know they have pretty iffy reviews... BUT They hold tons of pee! With a super soaker that's a huge plus. Bamboo is soooo soft they really need to make all clothes out of this material. I really think nudist colonies would go bankrupt if everything was made from bamboo. I <3 bamboo (does it show). I have swaddlebees covers for them and well they leak at the leg bands over night :( I do not know if all covers do this or maybe the larges are just too big? Or the river of pee that flows from little miss Marie. I also have a wool cover (no clue what brand it is) but it must need something because I swear it was just a rag. Can we say big messy puddle of wet??? If this bamboo diaper gets such poor reviews I could only Imagine the types of back flips I would do if I had a bamboo diaper that was better than this.
If you have a bamboo diaper, or liner you would like me to try drop me a line, as I have a tester that might as well be called a faucet.
If I figure out how to do pics on here I will add a picture of my beloved Bambineo.

Diaper Reviews

I think I am going to start talking to myself ;) about diapers and benefits and negatives of them. Kind of my own personal reviews, to decide what I want to use for the new little nut. Try to jog my memory of what I liked and what I did not. If you want me to review or mention your products shoot me an email. I don't have many to talk about a have very little in my stash because I started so late but I do have a few, with very strong opinions on them. I know diapering a girl to a boy will be a big difference but I still need to remember why I stopped using some and keep using the ones I am.


Well my world is interesting, my life is strange... But who's is not? I need to get use to this as this is my first blog ever. I guess I should look around and see whats up before typing anymore.
I figured out how to change the colors. EXCITING. I wonder how to put pics up?
Anyway about me. I am a mom to two girls.. Lynn and Marie with a miracle boy on his way. We are planning a nice quite natural home birth and I want to do everything natural. The only thing I am not planning is co-sleeping. But will sling, breastfeed, cloth diaper.
