Cloth diapering on the go!

Cloth Diapering on the Go - The Maven of Social Media® ~ Review

I love cloth diapering for so many reasons. The health of my babies bum, less trash to the curb, the cute and functional designs, the lack of chemicals. But I don't always cloth diapering on the go.

Lucky Edison received an aden + anais dream blanket, among some other goodies from them several weeks ago, and he's been a snuggly happy baby ever since.

Quincy was given one of their issiee blankets and from there we fell in … [Read more...]
