Homeward Bound, and an upcoming #CLOTHDIAPERS event!

Last night I bought tickets.... to where? Oregon! Yes, that's right. I was born and raised in Oregon and left there at age 22 when I joined the Army! I was sent to Germany and that is where I met my husband! After serving 5 years in the Army I decided to get out because I wanted to start a family. I didn't like the idea of husband and wife serving in the Army, and the fact that both could be deployed at the same time, so I decided to get out. I was honorably discharged and got out while we were stationed at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. Now we live in Maryland. I have not been home for almost 3 years, when I lost my dad to pancreatic cancer.
My dear sister is pregnant with her second child, a boy! Her first son was delivered via emergency c-section as her water broke unexpectedly at 34 weeks and 5 days!! He only weighed 5 lbs 15 oz!
This time around, she is going to have a home birth. She is due 12 October and I am flying out there to be with her! I am SOOOOO excited! I have never witnessed anyone give birth (except myself)... lol!
In honor of her having this baby, I am going to be doing a blog event when I come home. The blog event is going to be called "Newborns and Cloth."
Here is what I have lined up so far!
1. AMP diapers has donated an AMP All In Two (AI2) diaper size small!
2. Mommy's Own has donated a Grovia AIO Newborn diaper, a jar of Earth Mama Angel Baby nipple butter, an Aden and Anais swaddle blanket and some samples of tiny bubbles soap!
3. Madison Organics has donated a Lil Joey cloth diaper as well!
I am still taking on sponsors for the event!
I can't wait to try these tiny diapers on my nephew, and offer a few things for a giveaway when I get home! So be sure to stick around! It's going to be lots of fun!
I will have Internet access while I'm away, and the giveways will run like normal. If I don't get back to you in a day or two (if you contact me, or if you are a winner) please be patient!
Travelling alone with two little boys is going to be quite challenging!

Did you cloth diaper your newborn? Which is your favorite newborn clothdiaper??
~Mama of the Littles~


  1. I'm in Maryland, too! I cloth diapered my newborn. My coworkers gave me 6 weeks of cloth diaper service (prefolds with covers) and I loved it! I didn't even know that diaper services still existed. It was such a blessing to have someone come and pick up all the dirty diapers once a week and then leave you a bag of clean ones. I will do it again with the next baby for the first few weeks.

  2. I cd'd my newborn after the cord fell. I used Thirsties and I loved them!

  3. That's so exciting you get to go home for such a happy event! When I have my first, I intend to cloth diaper as early as I can.

  4. Congrats! I didn't CD my first son (now going on 12) and started with my second son (almost 11 mos.) until he was 6 months old even though I considered it all through my pregnancy. I wish I had started sooner :)
