Smart Bottoms Dream Diaper 2.0 – Even Dreamier than Before

Smart Bottoms has just announced two great updates to their Dream Diaper.  They took all of your customer feedback and made a couple of adjustments to the areas that needed some improvement while still keeping all of the great features the Dream already had.  Little Noah got a chance to try the Dream Diaper 2.0 out and the redesigned version is tested and approved! The first change is to the pocket opening at the front of the diaper.  The opening has been streamlined and the flap was eliminated.  The new fit is clean and trim while still allowing a generous enough pocket opening to fit all of the insert options.   Without the flap at the front of the diaper it is much simpler to get a flat and comfortable fit even on the smallest rise setting as you can see here in our pictures of Noah.  The lack of a front flap also makes spraying and removing solids even easier!   The second change is an increased width of the diaper starting at the crotch and up to through back of the diaper.  The extra inch of width will give older and larger babies better bum coverage and further contain their messes.  Noah is very narrow through the hips and bum and the new width still offers him a trim and comfortable fit.   Noah is a very active …

10 binge-worthy Shows to Watch While Nursing

Everyone loves a good binge-worthy show, especially at 1 am, (or anytime) when the baby is nursing again. Or while folding laundry, I promise it makes laundry folding more tolerable. What makes a good binge-worthy show? Well, first lots of seasons. The more seasons the longer the binge, the longer you have until you have to find a new binge show. Second, episodes have to be 45 minutes or less. I use this rule because fingers crossed, your nursing session lasts about that long and you can go back to sleep after one show. Hopefully, this list will set you up for a long, successful and enjoyable binge sesh. Making late night – early morning nursing sessions a little less sucky. All of my suggestions are on Netflix, so get your Que ready and loaded with these awesome shows! Desperate Housewives– I mean who doesn’t love a little drama in their life? This show has all the drama and loads of seasons for you to enjoy! Parenthood– Also drama, but of the family sort. However, be warned you may need a box of tissues with this amazing show. This is one of my all time favorites! Friends– A classic. You can’t go wrong here. I use friends as my backup when I can’t seem to find something else or my emotions are high from parenthood. How I met your mother– …

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 …

Nighttime Cloth Diapering Solution: the Grovia O.N.E.

Like so many other cloth diapering mamas out there, once my little guy got to a certain point, regular cloth diapers just weren’t cutting it for overnight use anymore. Night after night I’d try different combos of inserts and covers and still my husband and I would end up blearily changing the diapers, pajamas, and sheets of our screaming child when we should all have been sleeping. We even gave disposables a try for nighttimes, and that was a pretty big leaky fail as well. How do other parents use cloth diapers overnight?  Finally, after asking around and doing a little bit of research, we decided to try the Grovia O.N.E. for overnight. We bought two, both in beautiful solids, and they are now a beloved and integral part of our stash. Here’s why I love the O.N.E.: The outside feels durable, and the inside is just so soft. It comes with two different-sized snap-in inserts, which can be used together or separately. They’re meant to help the diaper grow with your child, which is always a plus. The O.N.E. comes with snap closures, but if hook and loop is your thing, that’s fine because it also comes with hook and loop snaps that snap in if you want to use them! This means that the hook and loop strip can be easily removed before washing to keep it working …

Geffen Baby Insider: Prefolds & Absorbers

There are so many things to love about Geffen Baby products. They are made in the USA, affordable, and made using natural fibers. Cloth diapering can be such an investment with many families suffering from a bit of sticker shock. So it’s nice to find a USA brand that has quality and affordable products! Two of my favorite Geffen Baby products are the jersey hemp prefolds and the absorbers. We have used these products with a toddler and a newborn. The jersey hemp prefolds are so absorbent and such an affordable nighttime solution. I love how soft they are as well! With my toddler, these were great trifolded in a cover and lasted us 12+ hours overnight with no leaks! And the quick absorbers were my favorite microfiber replacement in all of my pocket diapers. I love how trim they make every diaper without sacrificing absorbency. On my newborn, the jersey hemp prefolds were the perfect solution when he started sleeping longer stretches at night. My baby was too tiny for most one-size diapers, but as he started wetting more and sleeping longer stretches, most newborn diapers couldn’t make it as long as we needed without leaks. The newborn absorbers were also the perfect solution to keep us in newborn diapers as long as we needed! Being a preemie, we used our newborn stash for the first 6 months of …
