When Kelly sent me the photos for her "Then there was snow" post, I couldnt help but to remember ONE-MORE-TIME, that I dont miss the snow. I do wish my girls could play from time to time on the snow, and then to have the snow melted after playtime (Yeah, right).

Last Saturday, with a temperature of 87 F, I went to the beach with my family. Yes, the beach. One of the perks of living in the Caribbean is that you get to be able to go to the beach all year long. Off to the beach we went, and my girls got to play with SAND instead of SNOW. We are still in Winter, but the Caribbean winter is certainly very different to the winter at Kelly's town.

Here are some of the photos, and I honestly hope you get some WARM vibes your way at the second you look at these photos... Here is my oldest daughter:

Kelly's Closet & bumGenius Review/Giveaway

Read the full story here...

Yes I have twins, and yes I am cloth diapering. Those outside the cloth diaper community tend to gasp when hearing this information. However, no one gasps louder than my family members. I am not what people think of when picturing someone who cloth diapers (but who is?). The stereotype is the hippie, organic woman that asks with more than a hint of disgust "You're still putting your child in that plastic underwear?" I am more the "Oh my gosh those shoes and that bag were made to be in my closet" kind.

So when we announced proudly that we were cloth diapering my family nearly fell over. My sister-in-law said "I give you a week, then you quit." How nice, right? But the feeling of confusion
was felt family-wide. All brows furrowed in question of our choice and people found no problem announcing their lack of respect for our latest decision.

But the truth is, we like it. Its not that messy and there is just an allure that is truly unexplainable for me. I have not yet managed to pin point whether it is the help to the bank account or the environment OR whether the little fuzzy underpants are just so adorable I can't help myself.
At family functions when I pull out a cute little diaper that is nicely lined with fleece, the shock continues. Cloth diapers have come a long way from what people remember them to be. The first thing that usually comes out of their mouths is "THOSE are the diapers?! But they are too cute to poop in!" They are cute, but I am thrilled when the poop is actually in those beautiful little diapers rather than on my children's clothes!

It seems that although they find the diapers just as cute as we do, they still don't "get it." They may now be "in the know" of our diapering habits however, they still are not converts. But thats okay. We aren't out change everyone else's lives, just ours. We can put our heads on the pillow at night knowing we are throwing a few thousand less diapers in a land fill. And as my husband puts
it, "cloth diapering just seems so much classier."

Cloth Diapering is Like a Judgement Magnet

Read the full story here...

What Does Your Husband Do for a Living?
Yes, folks, that’s the very first response I got from a friend when she learned I was cloth diapering my son.

Initially, I was a bit baffled by the question, as this particular friend generally doesn’t care about “worldly” things such as what my husband does for a living. I’ll assume my peculiar facial expression prompted her to explain, however, in the moment before she continued, I realized why she was asking…

Could we not afford disposable diapers?
My friend insisted having cloth diapered her own six children the old-fashioned way (flat diapers with diaper pins and rubber pants), that cloth diapers were just too much work.

I endlessly started to explain about the "new and improved" way to cloth diaper. How it really doesn’t have to be a lot of work, etc… And, yes, while I would be saving a substantial amount of money, I wasn’t doing it solely for the money savings factor. We weren’t destitute and unable to afford disposable diapers… I just wholeheartedly wanted to cloth diaper because instinctually it felt like the natural way to diaper!

Besides, there shouldn’t be any shame associated with cloth diapering even if I couldn’t afford disposables. Many very affluent people cloth diaper, including celebrities! So there’s no sense in needlessly throwing money away if there’s a better, more economical way!

Unsurprisingly, she thought I was weird. Maybe so… then I’m a proud cloth diapering weird-o!

As for my family, they’ve always known me to march to the beat of my own drum. Aside from one of my oldest brothers who has twin boys, I’m the only other sibling to have kids… so, truthfully most of my family doesn’t particularly care what I chose to diaper with. For the most part, they think the diapers are cool and cute!

My mom, on the other hand, was very adamant against cloth diapering. As I mentioned in a previous post, Why Serena LOVES Cloth, she continued to try and talk me out of cloth diapering. When all else failed, and I continued to assure her that I was absolutely firm in my decision to cloth diaper, she really went for the kill. Knowing how much of a neat/clean freak I am, she insisted my whole house would smell. She thought she had me, but NOPE!

When my mom cloth diapered, clearly they didn’t have the wonderful options that we have today. But more notably, nearly everyone used a laundry service. Once a week the service would pick up the dirty diapers and drop off a bag of clean diapers. Well, in all fairness, yeah, my whole house probably would start to smell if I didn’t wash my diapers for a week! If I were to let the diapers marinate for a week I can mentally picture the waft of stink flowing not only throughout the house, but outside the windows like in a cartoon. PHEW! Thankfully, I have a washing machine that does all the work (ok, so I have to load it, big whoop!) and we wash every few days (I usually go every 3 days – primarily because if they sit any longer the more stink sets into the diapers).

I’ve learned everyone will have an opinion, and they’re entitled to their opinion. So I take the advice my former La Leche League leader and I listen, nod, smile, and say thank you; and I leave it at that!

A couple of weeks ago we received our shipment of FuzziBunz Accessories in stock. We have been so busy the past weeks that all hands were on deck and that included me. Usually I am sitting behind the computer but for a few nights I came down to the shop and worked at night putting stock away.

I opened the first box of accessories of FuzziBunz accessories and was so pleasantly surprised. First of the the quality is phenomenal. The second thing I noticed that the colors were so bright and the fabrics used are such high quality.

I especially loved the new "Apple Green" Color of the FuzziBunz Zippered Tote Bag. (We hope that the "Apple Green" will make its way into diapers soon!) The size of the tote bag is a bit different than other wet bags that we carry. It is a nice square type size measuring 12.75" x 12.75". On the front of the bag is the cute FuzziBunz name. The zippered is actually hidden under some material.

The wipes that we received are already flying out the door. We are already out of a couple of varieties. The most popular variety is the FuzziBunz. The combo pack comes with 5 organic cotton wipes (Made with 100% organically grown cotton and produced without the use of pesticides, chemicals or dyes.) and 5 organic cotton/fleece wipes.

The FuzziBunz Changing Pads are perfect for the diaper bag or changing table. They are made of one side soft knit polyester and the other side either a fleece -or- organic cotton option. The FuzziBunz Mattress Pads are great for babies crib or for the "family bed" if you are co-sleeping with your baby.

My favorite accessory is the new FuzziBunz In and Out Mess Free Bag. It is a pail liner that you can hang on a door knob or hook. You put dirty diapers and accessories in the top of the bag and on wash day just unzip the bag and the contents go right into the machine without having to touch anything!! I suggest if you are using any type of pocket diapers to remove the inserts from the diaper before you put in the bag. (By removing inserts from the diaper you also reduce the chance of having any odor problems.)

The last thing that I noticed is that they are beautifully packaged with product description, fabric content, and wash instructions. This makes gift giving super easy. I know many diapering products don't come with packaging but if you are giving some cloth wipes or wet bag that aren't packaged (for example) to someone who never cloth diapered before they aren't really going to know what to use them for.

FuzziBunz In and Out Mess Free Diaper BagA truly unique diaper storage system and one every cloth diapering parent should have. Hang on any hook or doorknob and you have a portable no fuss diaper bag that is convenient and eliminates the whole need for a "pail" system. Simply fill the diapers up from the top opening � and unzip the bottom to let them out into the wash. Wash diapers and the bag altogether - NO MESS! Can be used for years to come as a cute laundry bag for storing and washing dirty clothing once diaper days are over.

FuzziBunz Changing PadsFuzziBunz Changing Pads are super sized compared to other changing pads to protect your precious one from the elements. Fits nicely to protect car seats or bassinets. They come in a variety of colors and in either Organic Cotton or Fleece as the top coating. Wipes clean. Folds up compact to fit in any diaper bag for the mom or dad on the go. The Changing Pad measures 27.75in. x 18.5in. (69.35cm x 46.25cm.) when open and folds small so that it fits inside most diaper bags.

FuzziBunz Organic Cotton WipesWonder Wipes are a great addition to your reusable diapering system! Made with 100% organically grown cotton and produced without the use of pesticides, chemicals or dyes. The cotton buds grow in natural shades of cream, brown and green - hand-picked to make pure, soft cotton. Use FuzziBunz(tm) Wonder Wipes to clean your baby's bottom gently and naturally. No landfill waste. Each wipe is 9in. x 9in. (22.5cm. x 22.5cm.)

FuzziBunz COMBO Pak WipesFuzziBunz Wipes are a great addition to your reusable diapering system! Made with 100% organically grown cotton and produced without the use of pesticides, chemicals or dyes. The cotton buds grow in natural shades of cream, brown and green - hand-picked to make pure, soft cotton. Use FuzziBunz(tm) Wipes to clean your baby's bottom gently and naturally. No landfill waste.

FuzziBunz Double Sided WipesFuzzi Bunz Double Sided Wipes are made partly from organic cotton and partly from fleece produced without the use pesticides, chemicals, or dyes. The cotton buds grow in natural shades of cream,brown,and green - hand picked to make pure,soft cotton.� Use FuzziBunz Double-Sided Wipes to clean your babys bottom gently and naturally.

FuzziBunz Zippered Diaper ToteDiaper Tote provides a secure and convenient way for you to store your soiled FuzziBunz(tm) when on the go. Simply put your dirty FuzziBunz(tm) diaper into the diaper tote, zip the top and then store until you can transfer the diaper and tote into your diaper pail at home.


FuzziBunz Mattress PadWhat a versatile pad! Forget just protecting your crib from messes - it will do that and more. Use while you and baby are breastfeeding to not only keep you dry but your bedding too. Also make a great baby massage mat. Materials: 100% micro fleece (top layer), 100% polyester laminated (waterproof bottom layer). Comes in either 100% organic cotton topping for a smooth feeling against the skin, or topped with polar fleece for a luxurious stay dry feeling for both mom and baby.

FuzziBunz Nursing PadsKeep breast-feeding wetness to a minimum with FuzziBunz Nursing Pads. With one layer of super soft stay dry fleece, and 2 layers of absorbent flannel and one optional layer of leak free fabric you are sure to keep embarrassments at bay and keep a healthy moisture level to keep infections down. Available in Leak Free and Regular.


FuzziBunz Micro Terry InsertsFuzziBunz Micro-Terry Inserts are made of 4 layers of super soft micro-fiber terry cloth. Fiber content of this material is a poly/rayon blend. Micro-inserts do away with any bulk that may have been associated with cloth diapers. Micro-inserts make Fuzzi Bunz (or any other pocket diaper) super absorbent and super trim at the same time. One insert is all one will need for a daytime diaper. At nighttime, we do recommend using two inserts for maximum absorbency.

A litte bit about FuzziBunz and the inventor:
Fuzzi Bunz was invented by a mom like you! Tereson Dupuy founded Fuzzi Bunz in 1999 (almost 10 years ago!) after her middle son, Eden, suffered from chronic diaper rash. Chemicals in disposables irritated his skin and the clunky cloth diapers didn't keep him dry. Fed up, Tereson invented Fuzzi Bunz and has never looked back! Today, Tereson lives in Louisiana with her three children, Sarah, Eden and Bennett, and continues to run the business.
