Toddle Along Tuesday: Diapers

The topic for TAT this week is diapering. I think this week is definitely geared to all those cute fluffy butt cloth diaper babies.

Henry is not one of them. I entertained the idea of cloth diapering while I was pregnant with Henry, but Morgan flat out refused. He just doesn't see the benefit when compared with the work. Without his help, I just wasn't willing to go it alone.

So, our diapering routine is pretty boring. We use Pampers Cruisers -- size 3. They have Sesame Street characters on them which Henry loves since he is obsessed with Elmo.

I still think that cloth diapering would be really great for our next baby. But I'm not anticipating Morgan changing his mind.

What's your diapering routine? Do you cloth diaper, or wish you did?

Love Elmo on his little bum :)

Those are our traveling diapers, I love them. I think they are cute. Ben and Penny are starting to recognize Elmo too.

I showed my husband the cost comparison and promised to do most of the work - so I was able to convince him to cloth diaper. As it's turned out, he's discovered it's not as hard as he thought and he's been super-helpful. He told me he'd rather wash cloth diapers than actually CHANGE a poopy diaper any day! :) I love the paint smears on his bum in that one pic! So cute!

We don't cloth diaper either. I couldn't get my husband on board and I didn't really want to do all the extra laundry. Oh, and Henry's Elmo bum is pretty darn cute :)

Brett has always left the diapering decision up to me since I'd be the one most likely to use them. When Wes was first born our shared washer was down two flights (so not an option), then after that I was a single mom (when Brett moved for work in MN) and I lived between two homes and couldn't have kept up with cloth diapers on top of all my other responsibilities. Now, we've had our own washer for like 8 months, but have continued with the Target disposables. With baby #2 on the way, the topic came up again. I use cloth wipes and can't imagine how hard it would be to keep up with two kids in diapers. With disposables costing 17 cents a diaper and all else considered, we're going to stick with disposables.

I used cloth diapers at home and disposables when we were out. Love the elmo bum, I think I use to have Elmo swimmers for Pete when he was little, he's only 4 but it seems so long ago that he was wearing diapers. Thanks for following me, I have followed back. Enjoy the rest of your week :)
We have used cloth diapers on our 9 month old from the very beginning and I can't imagine doing anything else! I have enough that I wash diapers 2-3 times a week. My husband wasn't thrilled with the idea but knew it was really important to me so he agreed. Now he loves them. He doesn't touch the laundry, but I also won't let him!

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2021

When you are interested in Montessori, it can be difficult to know exactly what types of products you should get for your home. Or which types of "Montessori" materials are really worth the price. There are no rules about types of products can use the name Montessori which can add to the confusion. Not to mention, every toy manufacturer slaps the word "educational" on the package for good measure! 2021 UPDATE: Please be patient with links this year, with supply chain issues things are selling out faster and restocking slower. I anticipate some of the specialty toys will not restock once they are gone. Puzzles, in particular, have been difficult to find in stock. So, with this post, I'm going to try to help with this confusion! Here's a list of Montessori-friendly toys and materials for babies, toddlers and preschoolers.  First, let's clarify that there is no such thing as a "Montessori toy." Montessori never created toys, bu

Montessori Toddler: Favorite Toys and Activities 18 to 20 months

I've been putting off this post for a little while because I felt a little disappointed that I didn't have more to share. See, Teddy just isn't that into materials, especially those on the shelf. He tends to return to a couple of favorites over and over again and ignore all other attempts at shelf work. But, really that's my own adult feelings getting in the way of Teddy's own interests, and developmental path.  It's also me subconsciously valuing fine motor skills and stillness as more important than gross motor play and movement. I working hard not to do that, and want to normalize that all toddlers are different. All children have different interests and that concentration doesn't have to mean sitting still for long stretches of time.  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. With all that said, here are some of Teddy's favorites over the last couple of months. Favorite Montessori Toys 18 to 20 Months I'm listing the toys that have be
