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

Our Kids' Montessori Gift Lists 2020

With the holiday season upon us we've been making lists and gathering gifts for the Kavanaugh children. It's always a fun process of observing my children, seeing what they would really be interested in and making some decisions based on what I see. This year is different because I'm also making decisions knowing that we are looking at a very long and quiet winter ahead. So that's influencing the amount I will buy and the specific choices I will/have made.  Henry and Nora are also at the point, being into the second plane of development, where they heavily influence the items on the list and what is ultimately purchased. So, you'll see that while Montessori influences what I will purchase and what goes on their list, so does their own preferences and personality.  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you.  Theodore Teddy is 14-months-old right now and as the fourth baby, we have so many toddler things. But, there are a few things I've still found tha
