Growing With GroVia – GroVia O.N.E.

Welcome to our second edition of Growing With GroVia! If you missed last months post you can read all about the GroVia Hybrid Shells.  Be sure to follow along with us all day on social media, we have some prizes and a LIVE Facebook chat today at noon ET to talk about the GroVia O.N.E. #GrowingWithGroVia if you are following the hashtag! GroVia O.N.E. As longtime Grovia fans we were super excited to try the ONE as soon as it was released. At the time our second daughter was a toddler. It quickly became a go-to diaper for naps, long car rides, and even nighttime!  When I was pregnant with our baby boy I asked my husband if there were any particular diapers he’d like to see more or less of as we switched up our girly stash to something a little less pink.  His immediate response was that he would like a whole stash of the Grovia ONE. Not only did we add several new ONES to use during the day, but we never did get rid of our daughter’s and those became baby boy’s nighttime stash. As a newborn we we able to start using the ONE around 11lbs. The best fit for a little baby is with the snap in hook and loop and the small snap in soaker. At 4 months old and over 14lbs we moved …

Love Notes: 6 Reasons Why We Love Thirsties and You Will Too!

It never fails. Every time. No matter what diapers are on top, we always dig through and find a Thirsties cloth diaper. Not only are they my favorite, these diapers are the top pick for both my husband and mother-in-law too! We love so many things about Thirsties brand diapers! When we started our cloth diapering journey sixteen months ago, we only had four Thirsties diapers and now after trying so many other brands, we still keep reaching for them over all the others. Here are the six big reasons why Thirsties diapers are our favorite and what keeps us coming back for more… The Company – Made in Colorado, we love that they are made in the USA, even down to the packaging they come in. On top of that, 90% of the fabrics and materials that are used to make these high quality diapers are sourced in the USA. Their customer service is exceptional and they are so helpful with any questions and concerns! Returned diapers are repaired (if possible) and then donated to families in need. They recycle all their scrap material and have a 100% windpowered warehouse they distribute their diapers from. The Choices – Everyone has a favorite style of diaper. My husband loves the ease and fit of hook and loop. I love using natural fibers on our baby’s bum. We prefer covers and …

Baby it’s cold outside! Babywearing in the Winter

If you’re like me and aren’t lucky enough to hibernate all winter long or move south until summer comes back, bringing baby out into the cold is inevitable. If you have an older child too, it’s a guarantee with all the sledding, snow angel making and ice skating they want to do! It doesn’t have to be unbearably cold for you or baby though. Babywearing is a great way to keep you both warm and happy. Any style of carrier works in the winter, but some are more convenient than others. Wraps are warm, but the dangling ends are more likely to get wet or dirty from wrapping outside. You can avoid this by wrapping before you leave. I prefer a soft structured carrier (ssc) like Lillebaby, Onya or Tula because they are quick and easy to put on and take off. If you are able, try putting your child in the carrier while still in the car to avoid the shocking blast of cold air. If that is not an option, speed is of the essence! Have your carrier on and ready to put baby in when you open the car door. For quick trips outside like running into the store, I suggest bringing a small blanket that you can tuck around baby until you get inside. You should not dress them in too many layers if you won’t …

7 Reasons All Moms Need a Wet Bag

A wet bag makes a great gift for any mom to be. Whether or not she plans to cloth diaper her sweet baby or not a wet bag can prove to be very useful throughout the years. 1. All babies are adorable, but babies can be quite gross during all stages and ages. In the very beginning spit up is a very real thing. Wet bags are great for transporting those cute little outfits that have been spit up on a little, or completely doused in spit up. Plastic bags, while convenient, can sometimes transfer ink onto damp clothing. With a wet bag, you can toss in the dirty clothes then unzip the bag right into the washing machine. 2. Blow-outs. Blow-outs. Blow-outs. They will happen. They will be gross. A wet bag with a zipper will be a life saver in a blow-out situation. And as a bonus, if your baby is exclusively breast fed, you can unzip the bag and just throw the whole thing in the wash without having to worry about touching poop, again. 3. A wet bag is a great way to organize a diaper bag. You could use it to put all food items in to separate them from the other things in the diaper bag. You could also put toys in a wet bag to separate them, or blankets, or diapers. 4. Wet …
