Before giving birth, my husband and I thought that cloth diapering would be so time consuming and tedious. After 5 months, we realised we’ve been buying too much disposable diapers and cotton. (Guess how we realised this? I was able to get a lot of Mannings stamps to claim a Staub! Haha! :-D) So we… Continue reading Cloth Diapering: It’s a lot easier than you think!

We’ve been buying a lot… Continue reading Cloth Diapering: Crazy meets Cloth
