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 2020

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! 2020 UPDATE: This list is updated for another year! Enjoy a variety of Montessori friendly finds from both major retailers and smaller shops!  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, but only works for classroom settings. While there are many works that I recommend for home school use, you won't find these

Sensitive Periods from Birth to 6 - A Chart and Guide

Dr. Maria Montessori spent her life observing, studying, and writing about children. During her lifetime of work she discovered that young children move through a series of special times when they are particularly attracted to specific developmental needs and interests. She called these times, sensitive periods. During the sensitive period, children learn skills related to the sensitive period with ease. They don't tire of that work, but seek it, crave it and need it. When the sensitive period passes, this intense desire is gone, never to return.  That doesn't mean the skill is lost forever once the sensitive period is over. Instead, it just means that it will take a more conscious effort to learn. As Dr. Montessori explains,  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. "A child learns to adjust himself and make acquisitions in his sensitive periods. These are like a beam that lights interiorly a battery that furnishes energy. It is this sensibility which enables

Working from Home with Kids - A Montessori Schedule

One part of my life that I haven't talked a ton about here on The Kavanaugh Report is how I'm a work-from-home parent. Eight years ago I started to work at home while parenting full time. For the first several years, I worked as a legal writer while maintaining this space on the side. When Gus was born, I moved into working on sharing our Montessori life full time. It has blossomed into a full time career sharing content here, teaching courses, and now the podcast! Through it all, my kids have been home with me.  This all seems more relevant to so many of us now that Covid-19 has closed schools and forced parents to stay at home and work while caring for children. I'm not going to lie - it's tough. It's hard to balance work and kids, especially when children are used to a completely different routine. But, it's not impossible! And, it can even be enjoyable.  As I talk about in my podcast Shelf Help , we block our days into 3 hours groups. It helps
