As most of you know my husband is a professional photographer (and my personal photog tutor) and we have decided to throw a really fun mini-session portrait party! SO...for all you Portland mamas out there check this out!
This is a great opportunity to save over 50% off regular session fees! I will be there assisting any moms or kiddos that need it! I will also be providing light snacks as well as discount coupons and information on local companies who support local mommas! There is limited space available, so please book your session time NOW!! I hope to see all you glowing mamas there!
On to some pregnancy musings. I have been researching a lot about cloth diapers the past few days. We did cloth diapers with my son and loved it. When we first started, so many people said it was too hard and we wouldn't be able to do it. HOGWASH, I tell you! It was much easier than anticipated! We had a cloth diaper service for the first couple months that my son was born, which made it SO incredibly easy. But even when we no longer had the service it was just as easy. With the easy factor comes the green and toxin-free factor. Happy babies, happy planet, happy mamas! Cloth diapers have little to NO toxins, which protects our precious little one's bottoms! Keeping disposable diapers OUT of the landfills, helps our beautiful planet....our home! The average child goes through 6,000-10,000 diapers from birth to potty learning and these diapers sit in landfills for over 300 years! GROSS!
So, why am I researching cloth diapers if I already know about them? I want to learn about all the different cloth diaper products that are out there. Let me tell you....there are LOTS!!!! We used Bummis and BumGenius diaper covers with organic cotton diaper prefolds! We really loved both products and kept them all. We plan to use the ones we kept but I want to add to my cloth diaper stash. I want to try a different brand! So my research continues. If any of your mamas out there recommend a different cloth diaper brand, send it my way. I plan to put together a whole blog about cloth diapers, how to use them, and tips for all you mamas out there! Keep an eye out for that!
And for our menu this week! I hope everyone is taking steps towards a healthy organic way of eating for your body and our planet!
