You gotta do what you gotta do....

I always want to line dry my diapers outside, but I never actually do. I have a really shady backyard and nowhere good to hang a line. Fall is here and we don't have many nice days left so I was determined to sun my diapers. This is what I came up with. A clothesline from my tree, wrapped around my light post, and then tied to my my front yard. Awesome, I know! I got some stains out of a few diapers though!

It's hard to be a Lions fan...

I am just sitting here watching the Lions lose while Molly plays and Grace naps. I thought I would update my blog today because I will be going on vacation this Tuesday! I am very excited even though there is no such thing as vacation with a 28 month old and a 8 month old. We are going out to San Jose to visit Bob's sister and brother-in-law Emily and Joel and their two boys Ender and Grey. Gracie is very excited to go to the zoo with the boys!

I visited Emily and Joel when they were in LA when Grace was 5 months old. What I learned on that trip was that I would much rather travel with my cloth diapers than disposables. Grace had a couple of poop blowouts and leaky diapers and ever since then I bring my cloth diapers with me when I travel. I am especially excited to bring them on this trip because I have new Ragababe Organic 2-step diapers to try. I think it is going to be really easy to travel with them because they are an AI2 system. I will bring 4 covers for each girl and then 14 inserts each. I will also bring some of my favorite pocket diapers for them to wear while I am doing laundry. I also recently purchased a hanging planetwise wetbag to use for traveling. I have already tried that bag out when I went to visit Bob's brother. It worked great.

Well, the Lions have officially lost (yes, I always hold out hope until the very end) and Grace is awake. Time to head over to my parents for some french toast and bacon, yum! I hope everyone has a great week! I'll try to post some pictures this week!

★RagaBabe Cloth Diapers Grand Opening

Ragababe cloth diapers just came out this week and I am so excited to try them out! They have two different styles of diapers and I am going to try them both. They have the Organic Two Step Diaper and an Easy AIO Diaper.

The colors and patterns of the Easy AIO diapers are SO cute. I ordered an Easy AIO in Hero. I am a sucker for stars! I love the purple and aqua colors and the pinwheel pattern too. Too much cuteness.

I am excited to try the Organic Two Step as well. I use Flip brand diapers. They make up about half of my stash. I really like my flips and these Organic Two Step diapers seem like an improved version of the Flips. Be on the lookout for my review!

Two In Cloth...

Means twice as much cute fluffy bottom!

When I was pregnant with my first daughter Grace I decided to cloth diaper. When she was first born I used disposables until she was big enough to fit into her diapers. I love cloth diapering so much that when I was pregnant with my second daughter I decided to cloth diaper her right from the beginning!

My daughters are only 20 months apart so I knew that I would have two in diapers. Not too much has changed from cloth diapering one to cloth diapering two. I had to invest in a few more diapers so that I didn't have to do laundry more than every other day. I got a second laundry pail and pail liner so that I could have a pail in each of their bedrooms. I got a few more cloth wipes. Mostly just small changes. And depending on your budget, changes that you don't necessarily have to make.

My washing routine is pretty much the same for two as it was with one. I just grab the second bag of diapers on the way down to the laundry room. Sometimes I wash more frequently because the pails just seem to fill a little faster!

One of the great things about cloth diapering two as opposed to using disposable diapers is that they can share diapers! All of the cloth diapers I use are one-size diapers, meaning they adjust to grow with your child. If Grace is out of diapers, I can just go grab one of Molly's and adjust it larger to fit Grace. How convenient!

As I started the post, the best thing about cloth diapering two is twice as much cute fluffy bottom! There are some many different styles, brands, colors and patterns to try. I've had so much fun trying out diapers and finding what works best for our family. Cloth diapering can be addictive and now I have two bottoms to feed my habit!
