Focus on Fluff: Why I Chose to Use Cloth Diapers

why cloth diapers

This post is part of the Focus on Fluff series. When I began my cloth diapering journey, I was asked by several people why I use cloth diapers instead of disposable diapers.  Although I had good reasons for doing so, I felt like I couldn't give a full answer because I didn't have concrete facts that were backed up by research. This caused me do some digging... Below are some of the reasons that helped me decide that using cloth diapers is the best choice for my family. While I will admit some of them may seem to be a bit extreme, I believe they are still a concern and should at least … [Read more...]

Focus on Fluff: A Cloth Diapering Series

The past few months I have had quite a few people asking me about cloth diapering. Several years ago (on my previous blog) I wrote a series all about cloth diapers, sharing what I know and my personal opinions of different styles and methods. So, I thought I would transfer the series over here and update it with what I've learned from my personal experience of cloth diapering the past 2+ years. Here's what I plan to cover in the series... Why I Chose To Use Cloth Diapers Top Tips for Buying Cloth Diapers Cloth Diaper Styles: All-In-One Cloth Diaper Styles: All-In-Two Cloth … [Read more...]

Celebrating Christmas in July {A Fun & Meaningful Family Tradition}

christmas in july

Shortly after graduating college, several of my friends and I lived in the same apartment complex and created a tight-knit community complete with a shared garden and regular social functions. That particular year, July 25th fell on a Saturday so we decided to decorate one of the apartments, eat breakfast together and exchange homemade gifts. We had a blast! Since then I have wanted to create a family tradition of celebrating Christmas in July, but haven't yet for one reason or another. (Last year I was dealing with all day "morning" sickness.) This year I've decided to actually put my plan … [Read more...]

This post is by Sue Donaldson. When my friend and I entered the Nike Team in Training half-marathon in San Francisco, rest stops were definitely on our minds. We stopped at every porta-potty, just in case we wouldn’t see another one for a mile or two. It really slowed us up. But we weren’t interested in winning the race, we just wanted to finish it in a semblance of comfort. We also drank every cup of water offered along the way. More rest stops needed. Jesus invited us all to rest in Matthew 11:28: “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.” I like … [Read more...]
