Birth of a Cloth Diaper Advocate

Day 5 - Birth of an Advocate.  Making a commitment to cloth diapering doesn't just affect you and your immediate family.  You will soon realize that you will be teaching others about cloth diapers each and every day.  In the early days you will be introducing cloth diapers to your spouse and other family members (grandparents, aunts, uncles) and friends.  They will have similar questions and concerns as you do and it's easy for use to fall back info disposables in an effort to not cause any conflicts amongst our loved ones.  But you have the power as a parent to teach these people instead of giving them a 'get out of fluff free card.' My husband wasn't hard to educate since we were both learning together.  My mom was (and still is) one of my biggest supporters.  Having used cloth diapers on both me and my brother she was extremely excited to use these new modern cloth diapers.  My mom used a diaper service when we were little so she didn't have to wash her diapers but she did have ...

Tell Everybody the News – #RumparoozMusic


This has been a very busy week for my friends over at Rump-a-rooz.  This past weekend they attended a local baby & kids expo where they equipped one Colorado family with a stash of 64 colorful and fun Rump-a-rooz.  They also had their skeptics like the one mom who never thought Rump-a-rooz would fit their chunky little 29lb six month old (yes 6 months) - guess what?  After a trip to the changing table they were proud to find out just how perfect the Rump-a-rooz fit this little man.  In another week the Rump-a-roozteam will be packing their fluff and heading to Las Vegas baby!  It's time for the annual ABC Kids Expo (You can follow #ABCKidsExpo on Twitter) once again where companies and retailers meet up and elope at a little chapel on the strip (OK a very large conference center)!  Anyways, this is the time of year when manufacturers and brands bring out all of their NEW products in hopes to be the 'next big thing' to hit the baby and kids market.  I hear that Rump-a-rooz has ...

Rump-a-Rooz Cloth Diaper Review


While I'm in the loving mood I'm going to share with you a little secret - I love Rump•a•Rooz® cloth diapers! I wish I had an entire fluffy stash of them - I love them that much. Sadly I only have only lonely chocolate Rump•a•Rooz® that I won in a Twitter giveaway.    Five reasons I love Rump•a•Rooz® cloth diapers?  1. They are available in both Aplix and snaps to please both myself and daddy. I only have the snap version and he doesn't complain too much when he has to use it.  2. Inner leg gusset to keep the mess where it belongs - IN the diaper!  3. For those with newborns and infants when the Rump•a•Rooz® are set to the smallest setting they are actually SMALLER than the competition - allowing you to begin using them sooner than other one-sized diapers on the market. But don't worry - the large setting is very comparable to the others!  4. A scrumptiously soft microchamois inner liner. My friends little girl even cuddled this diaper - it is THAT soft!  5. The ...
