Great diaper tips and tricks all parents should know and read! Disposal diapering mistakes can be avoided! Great solutions that will save you money and your sanity.

I still remember one of my very first nights as a new mom when I made a huge diapering mistake.  One of my twin daughters, Alison, asleep in the pack n' play at the foot of our bed, starting pooping. I know because all newborns make extremely loud pooping noises. So, as a dutiful new mom, I sprung out of bed, picked up a few Pampers Swaddlers diapers (which are super soft and awesome for newborns with their mesh liner insert) and Pampers Sensitive Baby Wipes which have a perfect soft texture and are perfume-free and hypoallergenic, and began to change her diaper in the diaper changing table insert that came with our Pack n' ...

Cloth Diaper Cost - How much cloth diapering really saves you - cloth diaper expenses - cloth diapers vs disposable diapers

Cloth Diapers Cost:  Can You Really Save 50% or more versus using disposable diapers? When I had my first child about six years ago, I had no idea what I needed to purchase for my newborn.  Some things were obvious, such as a crib, bottles, and of course – diapers.   Being the frugal savvy woman I am, I had no idea there was an alternative to the disposable diapers we find in every store and see on television commercials. I was first introduced to cloth diapers by my neighbor.  She's a huge eco-friendly person and was like me – she wanted to save money.  Being naive,  I thought cloth diapers would be a pain in the butt, a ...

So have had this happen! Great baby stain remover tips for poop stains in clothes.

You would think by baby number four I would be a diapering pro and know exactly how to prevent diaper blowouts and remove a poop stain. But, my fourth baby wanted to make sure I (finally) figured out the best method how to remove poop stains from baby clothes, so she frequently does things like this:I know that the best way to treat any stain is to treat them right away, run them under water, scrub them, pre-treat them with the proper baby stain remover solution, start them soaking, yadda yadda.  But, despite my desire to keep my kids' clothes free from stains, sometimes life happens. Sometimes the baby oozes poop all over ...

What a great list and resource on knowing where and how to get free diapers! Every little bit helps save money on baby!

Oh, crap. Literally. Your child has done his business but you are out of clean disposable diapers.

Prep for fourth baby now

This is a sponsored post by Proctor and Gamble and Acorn Influence. All opinions are my own. Prepping for a baby is going to be different for every family, and for every child, especially when that child is not your first, your second, or even your third. By the time a family is doing prep for a fourth baby, things are going to be easier, more relaxed, even if it's finally a child of a different gender. That is because parents of three kids already know what is really necessary for a baby, and what is not. A first baby is prepped for to the fullest extent. From over-the-top baby showers and nurseries to adorable layette, a ...

Are Little Boys Really That Different From Little Girls?

Besides the obvious differences, little boys are often touted as being harder to raise. But, are little boys really worse than little girls?

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Huggies® for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. My son just turned two years old two weeks ago! In his two years of life, he hasn't been all that different in temperament or disposition from his twin older sisters. Certainly his personality is different than both of theirs, or more of a mix of the two, kind of like his looks fall somewhere in between his fraternal twin sisters' very different appearances, too. But, one thing is for sure: he's adorable and I love him like crazy. Having a single child has been so different from having twins. I instantly fell in love with my ...
