There has been a lot of cloth diaper talk on my blog lately (and there's more to come!) but one thing that usually doesn't get mentioned is how to take care of them. You shouldn't use just any old detergent on cloth diapers because it can lead to build-up (ie the diaper won't absorb the liquid anymore) or stinkies (a very technical term) but you don't want to spend a fortune trying out detergents to find one that works!

It's not always easy to find the time to pick up a book when you're a busy mom!

Lulie Decor Designs focuses on "beautiful and unique personalized picture frames to celebrate weddings, babies, and the relationships we share with our loved ones" and was even featured on on "15 Fresh Handmade Gift Ideas" (November 26, 2010) on HGTV for their Read more [...]
Little Threads by Rebecca is an Etsy store that makes a personal weakness of mine - sweet little baby hats! Since babies should wear hats when it's cool (or downright cold, as it is right now), they should be as cute as possible, right? Rebecca has turned her hobby - or perhaps it's an obsession - with crocheting into a store with loads of cute things that make perfect gifts for new little babies or their older siblings!
For review, I chose Rebecca's most popular item, the Little Monkey Read more [...]
