New Huggies Slip On Diapers

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Huggies, but all my opinions are my own. #HuggiesSlipOn #pmedia My nephew Jackson just recently started walking, so he was the perfect candidate to test out the new Huggies Little Movers Slip On diapers. That’s him with big sister Alizah. For the most part, he’s become pretty solid at toddling around, but every once in a while he still likes to let her {Read More}

#AD Budget-Friendly White Cloud Diapers #WhiteCloudDiapers

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of White Cloud Diapers. Since Levi has apparently decided to take an extended break from potty training, I’ve been spending more time in the diaper aisle at Walmart stocking up on pull-ups than I care to admit. Since I believe in following his lead and right now he only wants to pee in the toilet occasionally, that’s just how it is. When White Cloud offered to send me some of {Read More}

My Kid Is Cute, But I Am Tired Of Wiping His Butt

Ever tried to potty train a toddler? It’s tough. After reading about how some people do it in a weekend, I never imagined it would be a several-month process with lots of starts and stops. Then again, this is my kid we’re talking about. Given how distracted I get and how I tend to start lots of projects with finishing them, I can totally see why Levi’s interest in the potty comes and goes. I have no plans to hurry {Read More}

Pull Ups is Taking Over Times Square and My Bathroom

If you’re going to be in New York City on January 29th, you can visit Times Square to take part in the Pull-Ups party!  It’s going to be a giant celebration with an equally giant potty designed to help parents and their toddlers get potty training kicked off right.  I probably shouldn’t admit this, but I’ve totally sat on a giant potty before. When I was at BlogHer a couple years ago, there was a booth with one and I {Read More}

I Am A Crappy Mom

A heated debate on my Facebook page led to a snarky (funny) discussion with Trisha from MomDot on what bad parents we are. I still think she wins, but I had to try to top her. I’m a crappy mom. Here are all the things I do to screw up my kid: I hug him every day. I kiss his boo-boos. I use cloth diapers. I breastfed him for a year. I supplemented with formula. I use disposables at night {Read More}

Being A Kid At Heart (Dad Post)

I am traveling for work, so I asked some of my favorite dads to guest post for me on any topic related to fatherhood. I think this guest post from Matt is an important reminder about how we interact with our children. His wife Branson blogs over at My Reflections of Something and nicely volunteered him for this guest post 🙂 I’ve always kind of been a kid at heart. I still love video games, I collect Star Wars related “items” (aka toys), {Read More}

Closed: Disposables I Can Stand Behind – Bambo Nature Giveaway

Wow. It’s not often I’m impressed with a disposable diaper. For the past week, I’ve been trying out the Bambo Nature premium eco-friendly disposable diapers on Levi at home. And I think they’re fantastic. Normally, we use cloth diapers both at home and at daycare. Levi has super sensitive skin, so when he develops a diaper rash, we typically switch to disposables for a day or two so I can strip his cloth diapers, just in case there’s ammonia buildup that’s {Read More}

A Tough Parenting Decision

I’m just going to come out and say it. I put Levi on formula on Sunday. Here’s the background: We’ve been battling The World’s Most Stubborn Diaper Rash for a couple weeks now. We use cloth diapers, but have been changing from cloth to disposables depending on what type of diaper rash cream we’re using on any given day. This diaper rash is relentless. Levi has sensitive skin to start with, so he’s already prone to getting rashes. It would {Read More}
