A cure for winter blahhhhs

I always get a little down in the winter, not really depressed but just plain blah feeling. I miss the sun, warm spring and summer days, spending time outside, going to the park with the kids, all that stuff. I know I am lucky living in California where the weather is mild , no snowstorms, blizzards or ice. But all this rain is getting old already! So of course when I get feeling like this there is one cure that always diapers of course!! I have added the cutest swim diapers! I am thinking ahead to summer :) I have to admit that even a 100% cloth diaper user like myself has only used disposable swim diapers! It honestly did not occur to me that there were other options. DUH! Disposable swim diapers are expensive too!! These new swim diapers are by Monkey Doodlez and are the cutest things I have ever seen! Can't wait till summer to see my little guy in one! I was only able to snatch a limited quantity and I am hoping to add more once they become available. Also added from Monkey Doodlez the Cherry Blossom Micro Doodlez All in One Diaper, love the pink and brown! Look for more good stuff coming soon!

Counting the days 'till summer,

Preorder your Wahmies One Size!


The NEW Wahmies One Size Diaper is truly a diaper that fits from birth to potty training that sets no limits from thin & short to tall & chubby to everything in between. It is easy to use with an opening in the back for effortless soaker stuffing. It has soft and fluffy velour against babies skin to wick away moisture that stays looking as good as new wash after wash. It features a gentle waist elastic to help with the newborn stage and beyond. Four rise settings adjust from tiny newborn to busy toddler and the AMAZING QUICK HOOKS to make adjusting size limitless.
Time and time again parents using this diaper have told us how impressed they are with the sizing range. One Mom told us she successfully uses it with her 5 pound newborn son and even tried the same diaper on her 39 pound 5 1/2 year old daughter saying it fit her like a glove. Another uses it on her busy toddler who never has time for a change yet the easy adjustability helps make diaper changing quick and simple. The bonus is: Mom can take it off but the toddler is defeated in her effort to remove her diaper. Dads have even told us that once they have tried it a few times it has fast become one of their favorite diapers… simply because the fit is so adjustable they don’t have to worry about messy leaks!

Donate your Fuzzi Bunz!

Mother of Eden, the maker of Fuzzi Bunz, provides thousands of diapers orphaned babies in the U.S., Africa and Ukraine. You too can help by donating your used Fuzzi Bunz and inserts to those in need around the world.

Many underdeveloped countries do not have the sophisticated waste management systems like ours in the U.S., making it impossible for them to properly dispose of disposable diapers. Disposable diapers typically end up littering streets. On the other hand, cloth diapers are the diapering system of choice in these countries as they do not require disposal and can be used over and over again, saving caretakers from dishing out precious resources to purchase diapers time and time again.

To donate your used Fuzzi Bunz or inserts, which will be collected, compiled and earmarked for donation to orphanages in the U.S. and around the world, please CAREFULLY follow these detailed instructions:

  1. WASH the diaper and insert before sending. Please make sure they are odor-free prior to shipping. We cannot accept odorous or unwashed diapers or inserts.
  2. INSPECT the diaper and insert. Please do not send us diapers that are completely worn out or that have major stains, smells or tears. Remember, the diapers need to be functional for another baby to use.
  3. DON'T forget to send us your inserts too. We need your inserts even if the diaper doesn't pass muster.
  4. CAREFULLY label your shipment to us. We cannot accept used diapers that are not properly addressed. Please send your diapers to:

Mother of Eden
ATTN: MOE Diaper Donation
315 Weeks St.
New Iberia LA 70560

If you would like confirmation that your donation was received, please send a SASE with your shipment and we will notify you of receipt.

We are only accepting Fuzzi Bunz diapers and inserts at this time. Please do NOT send any other MOE products (such as wipes, pail liners, comfort pads, etc). Please do not send any other brand cloth diapers either. We can only facilitate the donations of Fuzzi Bunz diapers, as we stand by the quality and functionality of our diapers.

JamTots are here!

I just received a shipment of JamTots and I am thrilled! The BerryPlush diapers are amazingly soft, I just can't get over it! They have a soft velvet like outer ("Minkee") and and snap in soaker made with hemp and a layer of soft minkee so your baby's buns will be happy! I promise you will fall in LOVE with these diapers! They can also be used as a diaper cover without the snap-in soaker. This diaper is a must for any stash!
Also, just in from JamTots are zippered wet bags. Fun colors to coordinate with your diaper bag. They have snaps that can be used to hang on a stroller or snap multiple bags together.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to everyone! I wanted to start the year off with a bang so I am having a huge sale. Save 10% off EVERYTHING! Simply use coupon code NEWYEAR at checkout.

With the New Year comes new resolutions. Please help spread the word about cloth diapering in your community. Why choose cloth diapers? There are so many reasons. Cloth diapers are soft against your baby’s skin. Cloth diapers are also free of the many chemicals contained in disposable diapers. They are the ultimate in recycling because they are used again and again, not entering a landfill until they are nothing but rags. Best of all they are FUN! I am so excited to see the cloth comeback but yet I overwhelmed by the many people that don't know how far cloth diapers have come. Show off your baby's buns to other parents out there! Disposables - WATCH OUT!

Have a wonderful New Year everyone!
