AppleCheeks Learning Pants review and giveaway!

When I give away or sell my last cloth diaper, I’ll be a happy mama. And it seems we could be close. The jury’s out, on whether Bug will ever be a big brother, but what I do know is he’s transitioning out of diapers and into underwear. Even though I’ve already seen one kid […]

AppleCheeks Delishmas Giveaway!

A year and a half ago, I was a bit of a mess. I was at the height of my PPD/anxiety. I was scared to leave the house with my two kids. I didn’t drive (I had my license but was terrified to get behind the wheel). I was dependent on a lot of people. […]

B is for BRILLIANT! These diapers rock!

BumGenius, Blueberry, Bic et biquette: Brilliant! Okay, So why didn’t you tell me cloth diapering could be this easy? We have, of course been using cloth diapers for a full year, but I recently got fed-up with the diapers we chose. When we first bought our Mother-ease one-size diapers, we were pretty stoked. We spent […]
