Oh Katy Diaper Review

Get ready for the Peanut and baby photo shoot!

As many of you know, we are on the tail end of Peanut’s diaper life. She’s been potty training for about two months now and I think she’s getting the hang of it. Since we’re potty training, she’s diaper free for most of the day, but during naps and night time she’s still rockin’ the cloth diapers. I love cloth diapers. Seriously So. Frickin’. Cute. We’ve been using almost exclusively gDiapers since Peanut was big enough to fit in them, but honestly I’ve been wanting to broaden my horizons. So when I saw Oh Katy diapers at the Great Cloth Diaper Change, I had to get some!

Peanut's baby in an Oh Katy diaper. It's large on baby, but that's a tiny diaper!

And I must say, I’m impressed! Not only do these diapers get super, super tiny for newborns (see picture to the right), but they also can hold up to toddler sized waterfalls of pee! It’s amazing! And, while I still love my gDiapers, I’m very happy to have diapers that always smell fresh and delightful (since you reuse the outside cover on the gDiapers, it gets stinky after a while).

Butt in the air Peanut. 😛

Peanut has been undoing her gDiapers for quite some time now (the velcro in the back helps, but it’s still velcro), but she can’t undo these for the life of her! Very, very nice commodity when your poopy toddler is being impatient. You can even wrap them up this special way so don’t have to carry a wetbag! What an idea!

I am thoroughly impressed with these diapers. It’s a local {to me} mama who makes them and she’s just a lovely person. I really enjoyed chatting with her. I’m excited to use these on Twig and I love that they’ll fit him/her from day 1 until {theoretically} 5 years! I just hope Twig doesn’t stay in diapers that long.

Review: Nursling Necklace

I’ve always had a problem with Peanut grabbing, pinching, pulling hair, etc. while breastfeeding. People kept recommending a nursing necklace, but I was convinced it wouldn’t work. Eventually I started wearing regular necklaces, but they only kept Peanut interested until midday, then she would go back to pinching.

I eventually resorted to just unlatching her for a few second whenever she would hurt me enough that I would yelp, but of course that ended in her screaming. Luckily, she’s grown out of the behavior for the most part.

I really wish I would have found Little Nursling‘s necklaces while I was in the midst of Peanut’s mean nursing manners (alliteration FTW!). Peanutloves this necklace. The kind love that means she won’t even let me wear it because she must carry it around with her and chew on it (make sure to keep an eye on a baby playing with a necklace because they can be a choking hazard).

When she does let me wear it, she’s playing with it the entire time she nurses. It’s great! I haven’t had my hair pulled once since I started wearing it!

And this necklace is entirely natural!

Who wouldn’t want to own one? Guess what? You get a chance to! One lucky reader will win a free nursing necklace from Little Nurslings! How do you win such a thing?!?!?!
