Cloth Diapering an Infant

by jenna on October 17, 2014


First of all, thank you guys so much for all your sweet and supportive comments on my last post! Some even made me tear up – no joke. Thank you for making my day a little brighter and putting a big smile on my face! You can rest assured that I am not going anywhere soon.

We no longer have a newborn on our hands! We are five months in with Mr. Grayson and I am still loving cloth diapering him! Cloth diapering an infant is a little different than cloth diapering a newborn, and some aspects of our system have changed. I have gotten several asks for a CD follow up post so here it is. If you’re interested in reading more about how we cloth diapered Grayson as a newborn, here’s that post. We began cloth diapering when he was about six days old and never looked back, even on a two week cross country trip!

When I was pregnant and doing all the necessary cloth diaper research, I just FIGURED I would like pocket diapers the best. They seemed the most like disposables and didn’t require a lot of extra work. However, after cloth diapering for a few months I can absolutely say that I can’t stand pocket diapers! I actually sold every last one of my pocket diapers and bought a big stash of 100% cotton prefolds, flats and fitted diapers {all which require a diaper cover}.

Apple Cider Cupcakes with Nutmeg Frosting

First of all, I want to say that I have heard your comments regarding your dissatisfaction with my blog lately and I want to apologize for that. I’ve been blogging now for seven years and I think with everything going on in my offline life right now, it’s fairly accurate to say that I’ve reached a place of blog burn out. I actually feel a lot better now that I admitted that online!

To those of you who feel like this site isn’t genuine anymore, I politely disagree (and I have in the past and currently buy Green Giant products in my offline life. I would never choose to work with a brand that I personally don’t believe in). But to those missing the old vibe of the site, I agree and know where you’re coming from when you say that. I, too, sometimes miss the old vibe but the old vibe was coming from a very different place in my life than where I am at right now.

Lately… I am absolutely loving everything about Everlane, an online shop carrying beautiful basic wardrobe staples at fair prices ($15 for super soft and comfy basic t-shirts that you’ll live in!). The BEST part though is that for each piece, they give you information on the factory it was produced in and guarantee fair labor. […]

Our Weekend at Apple Hill

September 29, 2014

Last Thursday night I had a somewhat crazy idea that I presented to Adam. Let’s book a last minute place and head over to Apple Hill for the weekend! Now, this would be something we wouldn’t have thought twice about in our “old life” {aka pre-baby}. We lived for spontaneous weekend getaways when we would […]
