Royal Fluff Cloth Diapers

This cloth diaper post was brought to you by Royal Fluff.  All opinions are mine.'

Baby Brother inherited many cloth diapers from his older brothers, but I wanted him to have something new and luxurious for his cloth diaper days.  When I was asked by Royal Fluff to review their adorable diapers, I had no idea just how luxurious they would be!  I was sent two pocket diapers, "Prince in Blue" and an adorable "Blue Stars on Black" print:

Can Cloth Diaper Laundry Be Fun and Smell Good? {giveaway}

This cloth diaper laundry post was brought to you by Rockin' Green.  All opinions are mine.

When I began cloth diapering Captain Fussybuckets, I asked around to see what the best option was.  I decided to first go with the simple route and just see how regular detergent worked.  What a horrible idea.  Our brand new cloth diapers were stiff and smelly and I immediately regretted switching to cloth diapers.  But then, a friend told me about Rockin' Green.  It was a new company that made detergent strictly for cloth diapering.  I got a sample [...]

Prevent Flathead with a Babymoon Pillow

This post was brought to you by BabyMoon.  All opinions are mine.

Three years ago, when D was Baby D, we were sent a Babymoon pillow to try with him.  He was already five months old, but it was still very useful.  We would use it with him lying on the floor to make him more comfy and to prevent a misshapen head.  We have also used it in the car and the boys used it quite awhile, until we gave it to the mom of a newborn.

Simplify Your Day with the DayDreamer Inclined Infant Chair

baby

Disclosure: I received this DayDreamer inclined infant chair as part of an advertorial.

I love to hold Baby Brother and of course, he loves to sleep in our arms.  I am, however, also the mother of two other boys who need my help a lot, and a wife, and also a cook, dishwasher, launderer, blogger, etc, etc.  As much as I wish I could just hold Baby Brother all day without having to put him down, sometimes I just have to.  He is a pretty easy going baby, but [...]

Wearing Your Newborn – The New Boba 4G

Newborns loved to be held.  It's no wonder, because they just spent the first part of their lives being hugged in a warm, cozy womb!  Sometimes, however, moms don't have spare arms to hold our newborn, or if we do, we are walking around trying to hold Baby and do a million other things with the spare arm.  Wearing your newborn has many great benefits for parents and baby!

I was thrilled when I found out that the new Boba 4g could accomodate any size baby, and was excited to get to use mine when [...]

Preparing For The Cranky, Teething Baby

This teething baby post has been brought to you by Teething Tots.  All opinions are mine.

Teething.  Who would have ever thought that I would have used that word so many times during the boys' babyhood and beyond.  I actually used that word very recently because D just got his 2 year molars and the Captain is working on his 6 year molars.  Throughout their babyhood, if something was off…whether it be a runny nose, diarrhea, or just a bit of crankiness, teething always came up in the "could it be this?" list.

Newborn Cloth Diapers! (On Our 10 LB Baby)

This newborn cloth diapers post was brought to you by Thanks Mama.  All opinions are mine.

Baby Brother weighed 10 lbs, 7 oz at birth.  I'll admit, I was a bit disappointed that he wouldn't get to wear his newborn clothes and diapers.  It's like we skipped a whole phase!  I received two cloth diapers from Thanks Mama to review, and they were prepped and waiting for him when we got home.  One was a newborn BumGenius All-In-One and the other was a Thirsties All-In-One in Size 1 and I was estatic [...]

Celebrating Baby’s Firsts

This post about baby's firsts has been brought to you by Pampers.  All opinions are mine.

Baby Brother is our third child, but yet, everything seems brand new all over again.  It has been amazing to me that we are still sometimes confused about what to do and how much we have forgotten since D was a newborn…just three years ago!  I'm also pleasantly surprised that all of Baby Brother's firsts are so special.  I was worried that he would have "third child syndrome" but so far, I do believe he's getting more love and [...]

Baby Brother Loves His Bright Starts Baby Swing!

This Bright Starts baby swing post was brought to you by Kids II.  All opinions are mine.

We brought Baby Brother home just a week ago, so we are still learning what he likes and doesn't like.  We love to hold our precious  newborn, but sometimes I need a free hand or two.  I love that the Bright Starts Up, Up, & Away Sway & Swing baby swing was easy enough for me to assemble before Baby Brother's birth so it was waiting for us when we got home!
