Two of my best friends are having their first babies. One friend is as mainstream as can be, the other is my inspiration for reducing our waste and consumption. I’ve been having lots of conversations with both of them about babies and what they actually need, and I was inspired to share the fruits of these conversations with you all. I’ll post the Luxury Baby Registry that my mainstream, convenience friend and I put together later on this week.
This list is for the zero-wasters, the plastic-free, and the nature mamas. I tried to note vegan options as well.
This is the seventh year of the flats and handwashing diaper challenge hosted by Cloth Diaper Revival. Last year I was only on Instagram, but we still participated even while doing a cross country car trip. This year is a bit more relaxed, so join me Monday for a week of flats!
Last year’s stash shot:
I’ve gotten asked how to actually get people to buy cloth diapers off your registry a couple times now over on Instagram, and I spent this week helping one of my best friends register for her first cloth diapered baby, so I though I’d write a bit on making cloth diapers appealing registry gifts.
Laundry is going, bins have been pulled out of the garage, and we are T minus 24 hours until it’s time to camp! This will be the first multiple night camping trip we’ve taken with Kai, and since its in conjunction with a board game convention, everyone is especially excited.
So you want to make the simplest cloth diaper possible, or maybe you fell in love with stretchy bamboo flats but not their price? Here’s the thing: stretchy flats are one of the simplest DIY projects you could possibly undertake. Really.
