Explaining hybrid fitted nighttime cloth diapers #FluffyXmas

[…]diaper options.  Along my journey, there are a few diapers I was dying to check out, and one of them was Poopsiedoodles, so imagine how excited I was when Noelle said she would send me one for review. I am always stoked to find diapers that are just a bit different.  Poopsiedoodles are a one size bamboo hybrid fitted cloth diaper. {Wow, two of my favorite cloth diaper words in one sentence….bamboo and fitted}. With one row of 12 snaps across the front, as well as one row of 8 snaps for the fold down rise, this diaper will fit from approximately 10-40 pounds.  With 3 snaps on each wing, you will get a secure fit on baby no matter how wiggly he may be. There are also crossover snaps to allow the diaper to fit those teeny wasted babies.  These snaps can also be used to snap the diaper together for storing when on the go, whether dirty or clean. What makes Poopsiedoodles a bit different is that the fold down rise actually snaps down to keep it in place better.  When using the diaper for bigger babies and toddlers, the inserts snap into the fold down rise snaps so they don’t rub against baby.  I absolutely love this feature because I hate seeing red marks on Charlie from the snaps from some diapers with fold down rise.  If you need a more in between fit between the snapped down rise and fully unsnapped, you can just fold the rise down to where you need it without snapping it to the diaper. Let’s take a look at the sizing a little bit.     Each diaper comes with 2 inserts.  A large soaker {which covers all internal snaps} and a second double petal soaker, sewn together at one end.  The inserts snap together for maximum absorbency.  The inserts are made from bamboo fleece and bamboo fleece topped with cotton velour.  When using the fold down rise, snap the small one into the back of the diaper {as opposed to the front}, so it stays put for your little one.  When using the diaper without the fold down rise, use both inserts together for maximum absorbency.  Because I am use to diapers with the inserts snapping into the back, I have, on occasion laid the diaper backwards before I realized what I was doing, hehe. The diaper is an adorably fun Lobstahs!  The kids love it and I have to admit, it makes me want to pretend to get them with my pinchers!  Hehe.  It is made with a cotton knit outer, a hidden layer of poly fleece between the outer print, and a soft inner velour. With soft, stretchy elastic at the back and legs, the diaper gets a snug fit on baby, no matter what perfect size he may be. But what makes a hybrid you ask? The hidden layer of poly fleece acts as a repelling barrier.  The liquid hits it and sort of bounces back into the diaper and the soakers, giving them more of a chance to absorb it.   What does that mean? That means that this diaper can be worn for longer periods of time without a cover.  The inserts absorb more of the pee before it reaches the outer layer.  Giving your child more of a chance to show off that cute fluff without getting your furniture or floor wet.   I love this diaper, in part because of my favorite feature {do you remember what that is}.  This diaper is the complete package, and one that I’m confident could fit a smaller baby without too much added bulk.   Enter to win a PoopsieDoodles hybrid fitted cloth diaper from December 1-7th as part of my Merry Fluffy Christmas package.  Good luck!   What is your favorite feature of the PoopsieDoodles hybrid fitted cloth diaper?  Have you checked out Noelle’s shop?  Which diaper is your favorite?   *Disclosure:  I received the above mentioned product for the purpose of this review.  All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own and only influenced by my experience with the product and […]

Brothers, Books and Bonding Time

[…]to astronaut to diver and so much more, your child will go on a new adventure with every turn of the page.  The fun doesn’t stop with their beautiful face though, 1-2-3 Blast Off With Me has so much more to offer.  Your child will find their name hidden on a train, or dig up numbers on a construction site, and practice counting backwards from 10.  Every page features a fun skill for you and your child to engage in together.  This has been such a great book for Charlie and he loves to show off his face and tell you about what he is doing.  What I love the post is the small details.  Like the fire truck has Charlie’s birthday for a license plate number.  How fun is that? The other night I was lucky enough to catch some brotherly bonding in action as Charlie was reading his book to Henry.  Cutest. Picture. Ever.  EVER!!!  I love this moment so much and I know that I See Me! Personalized Books will give us many more of these moments in the future.  While I love sitting down and reading through this book with Charlie, I love that he enjoys it so much that he wants to show it off to his brother.   Our boys have been on many adventures with 1-2-3 Blast Off With Me.  Which personalized book will your child choose for his next […]

Passport to China + Review

[…]we go.  We are lucky enough to have some coins or bills from other countries as well.  The back of the book has a food journal you can copy and use and a passport with stamps for each of the countries you can visit.   It’s interesting to me to learn more about the cultures around meal times in the different countries.  Reading through that at the beginning of that country introduces a lot of ideas. If your kids are anything like mine, they love trying out these customs.  Now, like any Chinese meal, we HAVE to use chopsticks.  The kids each have their own set of chopsticks that my sister sent us when she was in Japan. Can we get to the important part here?  Tasting the food.  I’m not going to lie to you, I’m pretty picky, but I try not to be because I wouldn’t wish that on anybody.  My kids are all hit or miss.  The boys usually eat anything.  Maggie, not so much.  But since I instituted the, “I don’t care what you eat” rule, it’s been better.  I serve them the meal.  They choose what they eat.  I don’t coax or bargain with them.  There’s no meal time battle and she is trying so many more foods without complaining first.  It’s amazing!  That’s what I love most about eating our way around the world – so many new food experiences and we can make notes on things we loved, things we would leave out next time or maybe finding more foods from that area if we loved them all.  Having a few different meals to make for each country gives us a real dining experience {and allows us choices in case we don’t like something}.  Each meal is rated in forks to let you know the difficulty of preparing it.   We follow up everything with some books on China – we love to read so this is the easy part.   Geography Through Art introduces so many different types of cultural art to your family.  We had a blast making Chinese Scrolls.  Maggie really loved the variety of different drawings and I had a lot of fun doing the activities with them {and I am NO artist}. Legos has become the kids’ very favorite thing to do when we are home.  I like to try to find a building challenge anytime we study a landmark from a certain place.  We all worked together to build the Great Wall of China.  Don’t just see Quicksketch and look at the picture.  Be sure to read through it for some learning challenges.  This quicksketch introduces them to the concept of depth in a picture.  Draw yourself in the front, draw yourself in the background.  Are they different?  It also includes an explanation on why the two should look different.  Before each section in the book you can also find facts on each continent. If you are a homeschool family or just want to bring more culture into your home, you will love the culture bundle.  What state or country will you learn about next?  What is your favorite thing about […]

#GetMoving2013 *Yoga Lifestyle* Sponsor Spotlight

[…]is awake, however, the treadmill doesn’t work out for both of us.  That lead me to discover other forms of exercise that she can do alongside me.  The long forgotten yoga (at least for me).  The problem, she always kicked me off my yoga mat.  Little stinker!   When I found out about Yoga Lifestyle and their Bheka Long LIfe Yoga Mats By The Inch, I had to check them out.  Mats that are the perfect size for my little girl?  Yes please! That’s right, get the mat that fits your little yogi.  From 36″ up to 108″.  Each mat is 24″ wide and 1/8 ” thick.  If you are looking for something with a bit more cushion, check out the Deluxe Long Life Mat. Mats by the Inch are made from a super secret combination of PVC and linen which make it a non slip surface even when moist.  The orange peel texture is perfect for your little yogi.  Each mat is Okeo-Tex certified so it is safe for use by you or your little ones!  What that means is that no toxic chemicals are released into the environment when these mats are made.  They are fabricated in Germany and hand cut right at the Yoga LifeStyle Warehouse.  If it gets dirty or sweaty, just wipe it clean with a damp cloth or throw it in the washing machine.  Mats are available in 4 different colors.  The cost is $0.55 an inch plus a $10 set up charge.  But, if you order a second in the same color, you don’t have the $10 charge again.   Maggie loves having her own Yoga mat to work out next to mommy on.  And I’m guessing in about a year, I will just have to get Charlie man one of his own.  The fact that it is just her size is awesome because she likes to roll it up and put it away when she is done…or carry it around and lay it out here or there.  I never know where it will end up.  Because it’s non sticky, it’s nice when she puts it on the floor in the bathroom when she decides to play in the sink.   I love that Maggie copies me so much.  It makes me even more motivated to get in shape.  So we will be getting out our yoga mats regularly to get moving. Yoga Lifestyle offers more than just this though.  Yoga clothing, accessories, dvd’s.  If you are looking for some great products, be sure to visit Yoga Lifestyle. Retail purchases are FREE shipping. If you are looking for mats for a classroom in groups of 12 or more, you can get them for about $17 each, plus shipping.

How do you encourage your little ones to be active? *Disclosure:  I received the above mentioned product for the purpose of this review.  All opinions are 100% my own and only influenced by my experience with the product and […]

[…]me with, she cooks in her kitchen.  Since she cooks a lot too, it only seems right to have a lot of the same foods we cook with.  This New Sprouts Bushel of Veggies is the perfect fit for her play kitchen.  We already have a decent amount of food for her kitchen, but a lot of it is really cheap feeling.  That’s fine, but it also means it gets tossed out rather quickly because it gets ruined.   The Bushel of Veggies from Learning Resources is not cheap feeling food.  Each piece has a durable feel to it and will hold up for a long time.   The bushel basket of veggies includes corn, cucumber, broccoli, red pepper, eggplant, carrot, yellow pepper, asparagus and potato.  A great range of veggies that you can’t find just anywhere.  I love the asparagus, and so does Charlie!  It’s his favorite “food” to chew on.  Playing with the foods allows my kids to hear and talk about the different veggies.  Especially being able to expose Charlie to those foods that he isn’t eating yet is good for him. Having their play mimic the things we want them to eat helps us focus on healthy eating while they are having fun.
