Another great cloth diaper option #giveaway

I have a new-found love of bamboo. The fabric has natural antimicrobial properties which make it perfect for cloth diapers. Yes, I said perfect. Add to that the fact that it has better absorbency than any other fabric and you have me sold. Bamboo also is also extremely soft when washed and dried, making the diaper totally comfy for baby as well.

Right now Northern Baby is having a generous giveaway for two cloth diapers from Lil Helper.

There is another opportunity to win an eco-friendly and baby friendly diaper at Manager to Mom.

Dreamy pillows

I have recently realized that all our pillows, and we have lots, are a little old and in need of replacement. I have been looking into organic and greener options. Let me say they are not cheap, but they are worth it in terms of being natural and better for your health and well-being. Luckily there are several brands out there willing to offer giveaways so you have a chance at one of those great pillows. Beautifully Bella Faith is giving away a Savvy Rest Latex pillow.

Duo Diaper, anyone??

Anyone?  I think that line is from Ferris Buehler, but please don’t quote me!  Another great cloth diaper giveaway on Boys Toys Chaos Joys (isn’t that a great blog name, by the way?). There is a giveaway going on for a Thirsties Duo Diaper. I have heard great things!

Do All-natural mamas dye their hair?

Posted on

I have never had any interest in dyeing my hair because (1) it’s time consuming, (2) it’s money consuming, and (3) it’s full of chemicals!  Oh yes, and once you start you can never stop.  Never.

I have been visiting a lot of baby-wearing, breastfeeding, cloth-diapering or what I would call : All-Natural mama blogs.  I have noticed that none of these women, some blond, some brunette, have gray hair…at least not in the pictures they have posted.  This made me wonder if they dye their hair, them being all natural and all. Just for the chemicals along I would think they don’t.  I am a semi-natural mama of one with a growing mane of gray hairs.  I do not like it but I will not dye it.  You can never stop. Just ask my over 60 mom with all black hair and my Grand mom with all black hair.  I just don’t understand it.

Finally, it is most definitely not natural or green to wash those dyes out of your hair and into the water system.  Not at all.  Just a bit of advice to anyone out there considering starting the dyeing habit.  Don’t even get me started on what the dye and other “health and beauty” chemicals do to your body….
