100th Item Added! Cloth Diapering Handbook

This morning I added the 100th item to! Just released; The Cloth Diapering Handbook replaces The Do It Yourself Cloth Diapering Handbook.

With over 12 styles of cloth diapers…
7 styles of covers…
Over 15 ways to fold a diaper…
Different ways to wash,
store dirty and clean,
use and care for your cloth diapers,
learning to troubleshoot and problem solve,
decipher conflicting advice and information from a multitude of websites…

It's no wonder some people get overwhelmed with cloth diapering before they begin.

It doesn't have to be this way.

Thankfully, someone else has already done the research, experiments, learning and compiling of all this great information (while sharing her own experiences so you can learn from her mistakes!) into a single resource. With this book, you can read any time, anywhere and even take to the nursery with you to help you on your journey. All the information you need to get started is at your fingertips in the most comprehensive guide devoted to cloth diapering today.

Quick Facts:
* 8.5 x 11in., 126 pages printed front and back
* Full color images
* Step by step, detailed instructions and photo tutorials
* Helpful forms and worksheets available in the back of the book
* Professionally printed
* Comb bound to allow for easy page turning and folding in half (spine is printed with title and other important info for easy finding on a bookshelf!)
* New chapters on diaper making (including a long list of resources), potty learning and extensive expansion on existing chapters.

Mothering Magazine Subscriptions!

Mothering Magazine subscriptions are now available at!
Mothering Magazine is the only magazine that addresses contemporary health, personal, environmental, medical and lifestyle issues in an upbeat, intelligent, compassionate and courageous way.
You will be able to read topics as diverse as circumcision, vaccinations, organic foods, childhood illnesses, home birth, ear infections, parenting teens, midwifery, and homeopathy!
No other parenting magazine compares.
A friend gave me a subscription to Mothering before Aiden was born and it really did change my life. I often wonder if I would have come around to my crunchy ways if not for the magazine (I'm certain I would have, but when?).

Organic Caboose Diaper Covers

I am so excited to finally have diaper covers on! I searched high and low for a wahm who could supply me with covers, to no avail. Organic Caboose covers are high quality, organic!, and made in the USA so I hope that makes up for their lack of wahm-ness.

Am I getting too spammy?

I'm sorry my blog has turned into nothing more than advertising new products, however I have spent so much time adding them to my site and creating that it seems as though these products have taken over my life :) Once I figure out how to resize pictures without PhotoShop, or convince my husband to give up his game long enough to fix it for me, I will start actually blogging again.
Time to add a new product post :)

Organic Cotton Wrap Pre-Sale!

Wraps are the most comfortable of baby carriers and slings for long term use and carrying heavy toddlers. Wraps distribute baby's weight across both shoulders and across your entire back. There is a learning curve when it comes to use, but after tying it once or twice, it becomes easy. I will be offering organic cotton and hemp wraps on in the up coming month or two, however I have decided to have a pre-sale.

If you are interested in purchasing a 5 yard long wrap in Pistachio or Royal Blue 100% organic cotton knit, I will take $10 off the price! These will be priced at $50 regular retail so by ordering now, you will pay only $40 plus exact shipping. 5 yards is enough for most people to use for most or all carries. If you are interested, click here.

Pre-sale will end after 4 wraps are purchased, so if you want one, order soon!

I have a ton of pictures but Photoshop is not working and I don't know how to resize them without it so all you get here is one, however there are more on my flickr page. If you look closely, you can see that my sister cut my hair short last week. Aiden got his first haircut too!
