What kind of carrier is that and where can I get one?

This is a question I get a lot when I am using my Beco Butterfly II carrier. It's just beautiful!! I have one in the "Grace" print. And it's so easy to use!! I carry my nearly 25 pound baby on my back through a whole grocery trip with no back issues. I can flip her from the front to the back without taking her out of the carrier.

This is by far the best carrier I have ever used!!!

Not flippin' for the Flip Hybrid Diaper System

We travel, A LOT. Sometimes we travel to places where washing cloth diapers just doesn't make sense for us. So I went searching for a hybrid cloth diapering system. The first that I did a test run of was Flip system by Cotton Babies. The one size covers had a great fit on the baby.

First up, the Stay Dry inserts. We used just these for one day and they were great!! No leaks, easy to change, less bulky than carrying pocket diapers, and they fit like a dream. I was so excited, because this seemed like a great solution for travel!

Next up, the disposable inserts. After just 2 hours we had sprung a major leak. When I took the insert out it was completely bunched up. So I changed the baby and went on with my day, and my disposable insert test. Next change had the same bunched up insert, although no leak. Third change I decided to try something different, I put a Stay Dry insert under a disposable insert. The disposable insert bunched up just the same.

So I think the Flip system is out for a hybrid cloth diaper system. I am extremely disappointed since I have read such great reviews. On to testing the next hybrid system...

Bath time for baby...and mommy!

When I discovered that my little girl had dry skin I started to search for products that would solve the problem. I tried Aveeno, Johnson & Johnson, and even an adult dry skin lotion. None of those products solved the problem and she still had horrible dry skin. Then I remembered one of the baby shower gifts that I received, a Noodle & Boo Essential Care Kit. It included a trial size of the Soothing Body Wash, Extra Gentle Shampoo, and Super Soft Lotion. After 2 baths the dry skin was completely gone and she smelled wonderful! I immediately ordered full sizes of all of the products in the Essential Care Kit and haven't used anything else since!

I recently tried the Conditioning Hair Polish after little girl's hair started to get longer. It is, of course, another wonderful Noodle & Boo product! We use it after baths and if her hair looks crazy when she wakes up. It's great to freshen up those baby locks between baths too.

When I received my order they had put some samples of the Glowology Sensitive Skin care line in the box. I tried the Sugar Mama Honey Scrub and The Balm. They were absolutely wonderful!! I'm looking forward to trying more of the Glowology products!!

Does your little one have a happy heiny???

Well you won't know for sure unless they are in Happy Heinys cloth diapers!!

We have been using Happy Heinys one size cloth diapers exclusively for about 2 weeks now and couldn't be happier!!

If you are afraid to try cloth, Happy Heinys are the way to go! They couldn't be easier!! Just change the size using the super easy snaps in the front from newborn, small, medium or large these diapers grow with your baby up to 35 pounds! They come with 2 microfiber inserts, a small and a large, and you can use both to double up for naptimes or overnight.

I couldn't be happier with my choice to go with cloth or with choosing Happy Heinys! And having the Happy Heinys headquarters just 30 minutes away makes shopping for my new diapers super easy!!

And if you are looking for a great etailer to get your Happy Heinys stash started-check out Kelly's Closet Click here to visit Kelly's Closet

Ju-Ju-Be's MightyBe: Bag or Supermom's Secret Weapon?

I can't say enough good things about Ju-Ju-Be's diaper bags, who doesn't love a diaper bag that you can wash in the machine?? But one of their newly launched bags, the MightyBe, might just be my Supermom Secret Weapon!!

From pool bag to airplane carry on this bag does it all!! It is super light and even folds up to fit in a Ju-Ju-Be BeQuick, so you should you need an extra bag at the farmer's market you have it with you. With built-in loops for your stroller clips (think Ju-Ju-Be BeConnected) you can hang it from your stroller at Disneyland or carry it by the handles as you board your flight for Hawaii.

If you don't own one, you need one, and if you own need two!

Rockin' Green Soap!!

One of the things I needed to choose when I decided to cloth diaper was a good "green" non-additive detergent. There are so many out there but one of the recommendations from Happy Heinys was Rockin' Green. I LOVED the scents so I picked that to try.

I just placed an order with them since I was running low. I'm so excited to try the new scent, Motley Clean!! It smells WONDERFUL!! I also ordered the laundry scoop, some samples, and a Shake It Up! pail/wet bag freshener.

I have nothing but good things to say about Rockin' Green, it has been wonderful for my cloth diapers!!!!!
