Woohoo! I convinced my husband to go no poo & his goatee looks fuller, & his hair looked cleaner for longer on the first try too! His hair is about 1 inch on the sides & he has a 4 1/2 inch mohawk but thinner hair on top. You can't tell even up close anymore. He has black hair so it looks greasy normally the next day after he washes it. Its always bothered him so I was exceptionally happy that I helped his self image a bit. Over the 2 years we've been together I've helped him lose a good chunk of weight as well along with better grooming skills that help skin wise because he has occasional breakouts due to lack of exfoliation.



On a cloth diapering note I saw a $13 cute blue fitted with smiling clouds on wonderland fluffs hyenacart store & DH said I could get it but I got 4 pockets from Moses instead for the same price I would have paid for shipping with the $13 fitted so SCORE!

Remember that it's very likely his hair will look greasy in a few days for a couple weeks.

Maybe not though. When my hair was short it took to no poo beautifully.



I half want to go back to a short pixie just so I can no poo again. My hair is shoulder length now and our water is hard, it doesn't like no poo... plus I think this pregnancy made my skin more sensitive. It burned like the dickens even though I really diluted the baking soda mixture x-x

I warned him. My hair is 22 inches long so it has a bit of a greasy look to it but tonight was his 2nd wash & his hair looks better than mine lol

So, I'm considering buying a new carrier for when I have Peanut. I like my Baby Bjorn, but it's made for infants so they end up outgrowing it around 6 months. I've just started looking and so far have looked at Ergo and Beco. Anyone have any good recommendations on brands/types to consider? I want one I can reasonably use to 12-18 months and I DO NOT want a wrap of any kind. I hated my Moby and found it a giant PITA. Also, I want a girl looking carrier (bright, colorful, pinks, nothing brown, etc) so that's a consideration as well.

Kind of leaning toward this one in Lila right now. http://store.bobafamily.com/baby-carrier/



I can't find a Beco Gemini in Ginger anymore, but I'd really liked that print.

Question about those who have used diapers on multipul kiddos :)..



How did you store them between kids? & how long were they in storage for?



I've heard that the elastic can get ruined if you store them for long periods of time & that you need to wash every 3 months :? ..



If you didn't do that, how were the elastics when you took them out of storage?

I got into a conversation with a bunch of mamas about this not too long ago. As long as they are stored in a dry place(preferably a container such as a bin, spacebag, or something like that)then the elastic will be ok but if its in a moist place you run the risk of mold even growing on the diapers & ruining the elastic. If you have the dipes in an open area I would wash every few months to avoid dust, pollen & bacteria from sick people

I have had mine stored since November. Hmmm, maybe I should toss them all through the wash? I haven't even looked. I know I have had diapers sit, literally for a year without getting them sold and they were fine.

I just pulled all my fitteds out from my 3 1/2yo so they have been in plastic bins for 2 years-2 1/2 years. They look the same as when I put them in. Elastic is great, fabric is great. I'm still going to prep.
