Cloth Diapers Adventures: My Beginning

During my pregnancy so far I have been doing a lot of thinking and researching. From gathering coupons to deliberating on the idea of homemade baby food for money savings, I have been in non stop research mode. Trying to eat fresh and sometimes organic when I can afford it to avoiding toxins and things in general that could be bad for me or my baby has kept me busy. Looking into toys that are more than just bright colors and provide some education or tactile stimulation and deciding on colors and furniture for my little one to come has been incredibly long winded.
