Today is poop day for my son. You see, he no longer does one or two little poops every day. Now he saves up his poop for a couple of days, and then poops it all out like Niagara Falls on Ex-lax three or four times in one day. Since he’s cloth diapered, sunning his diapers has become my favorite way to get any stains out. Don’t know what sunning diapers is? I’ll post an explanation tomorrow along with photos of the process and results. It’s not just for cloth diapers either!
Several items came in the mail today that I’m very excited over. I mean, who doesn’t love getting their purchases in the mail! Free stuff would be better, of course. But this still made me happy.
MyÂ Ruby Moon Cloth Diaper Detergent- Warm Vanilla SugarÂ arrived.Â It’s cloth diaper safe and made without phosphates, enzymes, or brighteners. I’ve been using Rockin Green detergent from Diaper Junction for my diapers and have no complaints, but I’m always wanting to try new things.
I also received Ruby Moon wipe bits. They’re basically tiny little soaps made out of goat’s milk that can be dissolved to make your own solution for cloth wipes. When I opened the bag of this stuff and smelled it, I wanted to rub it all over my body. It smelled that good! After I check out how well they work with wipes, I’ll write a review.
Annnnd a diaper I’d ordered from Amazon arrived. It’s for nighttime diapering: Bummis Tots Bots Bamboozle Stretch Diaper, Size 2 (9-35 Pounds). It’s made with a bamboo blend, making it more absorbent than regular cotton. This makes the 4th diaper we have that we intend to use specifically for nighttime diapering. It’s in the wash, prepping right now, woot woot! ðŸ™‚
Diaper Junction has a deal going on now through Sept. 3 of free shipping for orders $19 or more. No coupon necessary! They also have a great Stash Cash program. Basically, you get points back for items you purchase. You can redeem the points for stash cash and purchase from their site. I redeemed points today and got a FuzziBunz pocket diaper for 6 bucks! That’s a great deal! And of course I received points for making that order.
We really, really need to buy new D batteries. The swing we borrowed from my sister in law takes D batteries, and for the longest time it was the only place my son would nap other than on top of my chest. He loves it, but he’s so big now that the batteries seem to die a lot quicker. It takes so much energy for the swing to move him! Anyway, I can see the power light flickering, which means it’s getting close to dying. I only hope it lasts until we get to the store!
Confession time: I really didn’t get that much done today. I’m not feeling well. First it was a stomach ache, and now it’s queasiness (no, I’m not pregnant). I just feel kind of bummed in general. So that was my excuse to not do much. It’s okay for once in a while to not work your bum off trying to be Super Mom, right?

It’s totally OK. Necessary, actually! Sunning also works fabulously for towels that have started to get funky.
Oh! Good to know, thank you ðŸ™‚
You need lazy days to balance out all the other days. Today was mine, too!
This was so helpful! We’re going the cloth diaper route too. So happy to hear you did too! And the goat’s milk dissolve. I’ll have to check that out! ðŸ™‚
Always glad to be helpful! =D Let me know if you try out the wipe bits, and if you like them!
I will! We’re looking forward to poop day as well.
