Intentional Pregnancy Project Episode 3


Baby Fever & BumGenius 4.0 Cloth Diaper Giveaway

Alright friends...it's the long awaited moment...a giveaway!! From Tuesday March 25 - Tuesday April 8 this giveaway will be live on the Rafflecopter form below. If you are a resident of the US, you can get one "free" entry by entering your email and if you want additional entries, you can like facebook pages, follow twitter accounts and much more fun stuff!

This week on the Vlog I discuss that oh so fabulous topic of Baby Fever! Oh the joy oh the pain of this emotional awwwwwwwww every time you see a baby! But the downside to that attraction to all things squishy and cute is the pain and jealousy that can occur when you see a new mom and her little baby and wish you were in that stage too. I've seen that baby fever can strike during all phases of life--even for those who have young children. It's understandable that women think babies are just so darn cute, I mean, that's how we populate the planet! But the downside is that it can cause a great deal of emotional anguish and frustration when we want something sooo badly and aren't able to achieve it at this time of our life.

I have dealt with a great deal of baby fever and have tried all sorts of methods to cope. Keeping busy, focusing on hobbies, reading, researching, learning, staying active, journaling, meditating, the list goes on. My goal is to remain somewhat content (just not too content!) in order to enjoy the phase of life I'm currently in, while looking forward to the adventure that little ones will bring to my future!

I love saving money! We haven't bought disposables since we made the switch about four months ago, so that's ~$240 we would have spent (with two kids in diapers).

Laura Noelle said...

That's awesome ginni! That is a huge reason I am looking forward to trying it as well! It is crazy how much can be saved.

Lmhoken said...

I thought I'd love saving money or having a lighter environmental footprint the most. But at the end of the day, it's the cute patterns that really win me over!

My little guy has super sensitive skin and disposables make him rashy. We love the look and feel :)

Shan said...

My little one is due in August. We first started looking into them purely for cost reasons. But after reading all the reviews, and comments I could find about cloth. I am convinced we are cloth diapering this kiddo! Plus who can resist all the cute options out there?

I originally started Cloth Diapering because I ended up with a "surprise birth control baby" & shortly after was Single so Cloth Diaper has saved my butt more then once by saving money. I have a tiny stash (4) disposables as just in case ofs but haven't used them yet & I've been cloth Diapering since my son was 6 months, he's now 21 months!

Bekah Kuczenski said...

I love how cute they are and I love collecting them :)

I can save money, and cloth diapering is better for the environment.

We are potty training our 2 yr old son and have found that cloth diapers work much better than the over-marketed and praised "pull-ups!" Also love that it is so much better for our planet!

My favorite thing about cloth diapers is saving money. I also love the cute factor, massive waste reduction, and keeping the chemicals away from my kids' bums. :)
