Christmas is coming which means it's time to start stocking up on Christmas presents for my son and all of my nieces and nephews! I love Citrus Lane for this reason! I have an awesome gift box that I can pull from for presents all year round full of awesome, quality toys! This box will be stored away for Christmas!




Little Adventures Red Hero Cape - This is adorable and very well made! The quality is awesome and I can't wait to give this to my son for Christmas!
$17

Janod Dominos - I love Janod toys! The images are so cute! This will make a perfect gift!

Hohner Kids Easy Grip Maracas - My son loves music, but we have a lot of musical instruments already. This may go in the gift box!
$7

Annie's Homegrown Cheddar Snack Mix - This is a sample snack pack which I love! These are great for figuring out what snacks my son loves, but also for throwing in the car or my purse so we always have something on hand.

I estimate the total value of this month's box at around $42. Pretty good deal considering each month costs $29 at the most! You can usually get a better deal through coupon codes or by subscribing to multiple months at a time.

Five reasons to love the new Hybrid Trainer from Super Undies

Super Undies is the place to go for potty training advice! They are the experts and their trainers are some of the best! This month, they'll be releasing a new hybrid trainer and they sent me one in advance so I could tell you all about it! Here's five things to love about the new hybrid trainer from Super Undies:

#1 It's one-size!
There's a couple reasons to love the sizing on this new trainer! The Super Undies hybrid fits from about 20-35 lbs. This is great for cloth diaper moms! Babies who use cloth diapers may be interested in learning about the potty sooner than the average child. So if you've got a tiny toddler, this trainer will work for you! You may be going into potty training thinking that you'll master it all in 3 days. Well...good luck! I'm not saying it's not possible, but if it doesn't work for you don't stress! It took my son a good 9 months to a year to be fully day and night time potty trained. In that year, we had to buy a whole new set of trainers because my son outgrew the first set. With this one-size trainer, just size up! And bonus! We all know how cloth diapering moms like to save their diapers for the next child. Since this trainer is one-size you don't have to worry if it will fit your next child when it comes time to potty train!



#2 The absorbency is adjustable!
The Super Undies Hybrid Trainer comes as a package deal. You'll receive one shell with 3 Feel Wet inserts. Use one insert for normal accidents or bulk up the absorbency by stacking a second insert inside. You could even add a hemp doubler to keep it trim, but still absorbent.



#3 It's a hybrid! 
Hybrids are the best! You can switch out the Feel Wet inserts that come with the shell for disposable inserts (see my favorite here) or swap in your favorite cloth insert. Flats and prefolds work great! Hemp Babies Little Weeds were my favorite swap in! Trim and absorbent!



#4 Kids can do it! 
The sides on this trainer are SUPER stretchy making it easy for toddlers to pull up and down. This is key with potty training!



#5 Snaps off! 
Accidents happen...a lot, especially in the beginning stages! Having a trainer that snaps on and off is awesome and makes clean up a breeze for you! Because really, who wants wipe poop off of your toddler's legs? I love that the snaps are in the back of this trainer, making it look more like underwear from the front for your child's sake.



This trainer is pretty awesome and a great investment if you have a smaller or younger potty training child. My son was about 26 lbs when we started potty training him at 23 months. By the time we were ready to ditch his trainers for good around his 3rd birthday, he had made it up to 35 lbs. The Super Undies Hybrid was definitely running out room for him at that point! I'm hoping to see Super Undies expand this trainer into a larger one-size for older children still working on potty training.

The Super Undies Hybrid Trainer makes it's debut in mid October and will retail for $34.95 for one shell with 3 inserts.

Getting back together with my first love {NEW Fuzzibunz OS review}


Fuzzibunz. Oh Fuzzibunz. They were my first love. The first cloth diaper I ever laid eyes on. It was December four years ago. I was pregnant for all of ten minutes and I couldn't keep myself out of the baby boutiques. So many cute, tiny, soft wonderful products! Cloth diapers were not on my list and not even something I was considering. So when I first laid eyes on a Fuzzibunz pocket diaper I was intrigued. It was so cute and soft. I knew then at that moment that we were going to cloth diaper our baby.

Fast forward nine months and with only two Fuzzibunz one-size diapers in my very small beginner stash, I knew I needed more! Fuzzibunz was on the brink of announcing their new Elite OS diaper, so I stocked up on the clearanced style. For a long time they made up the majority of my stash. When the new Elite designs were announced, I added two more Fuzzibunz to our stash. Then I couldn't resist a new print and I added yet another. My growing cloth diaper stash was full of Fuzzibunz. There were some big differences in the original one-size that first made up my stash and the new Elites. I found myself loving the old design more.

A couple months ago Fuzzibunz announced a new owner and a complete redesign. I was so excited to see what was coming! After all, do you ever really get over your first love?


The new Fuzzibunz OS comes in two sizes. Yes, it sounds confusing, but they are both one size diapers! The Fuzzibunz OS small fits from 7-30 lbs, while the large fits from 10-45 lbs. So if you're starting cloth diapering late in the game, I'd go with the large. If you're looking to cloth diaper from birth, go with the small! Have a chunkier baby? Go large! Have a tiny little thing? Go small!


The button rise adjustment is still the same. This is a feature I've always like! The hidden rise adjustment makes for a clean front panel and no snaps coming undone during diaper changes.


The insert is now microfiber (not minky like some of the previous Elite diapers) and is shaped to fit into the wings of the shell. This provides more area for the diaper to absorb, but also makes stuffing the diaper a little more tedious.


Currently, Fuzzibunz only released these diapers in five colors, but I really hope to see more colors and some exciting prints in the future!

If you've never tried Fuzzibunz or disliked the previous OS diapers, I encourage you to try the new style! It really is pretty awesome! You can order them direct from Fuzzibunz or my favorite retailer Kelly's Closet is one of their authorized retailers!

Spray Collar Review and Giveaway!

There's a new cloth diaper accessory and it's awesome! Diaper Dawgs released their first product last year, also called "Diaper Dawgs", to add in spraying out diapers. This product was perfect for parents or caregivers that were squeamish about touching dirty diapers. Not only is the product incredibly easy to use, but it was so stinkin' adorable!



But Diaper Dawgs didn't stop there. This year they announced the Spray Collar! This handy tool attaches to your diaper spray and shields the water from spraying all over you and your bathroom! It guides any back spray from making a mess! The best part about this sprayer is it's small and compact and never needs to be taken off your diaper sprayer to be stored!

I did have a hard time installing the sprayer at first. It didn't come with instructions and I was worried at first that it wasn't going to fit on the nozzle of my Knickernappies sprayer. I walked away for a bit, found an installation video and tried ago. Voila! It worked! The spray collar has stayed put ever since and hasn't had any problems staying attached.

The Spray Collar will fit most diaper sprayers (the nozzle should be 1" to 1.25" in diameter), but you may have to get creative with the mounting. My sprayer does not mount properly with the Spray Collar attached. I have to turn the nozzle facing outward in order to store my sprayer. This isn't the most secure way and it is easily knocked off the hook. Diaper Dawgs does sell a mount separately that will solve this problem. I've also tried hooking it onto a 3M hook which also works well!


The Spray Collar retails for $14.95 and a mount (if desired) is $4.95. You can purchase a Spray Collar at your favorite retailer!

This review was sponsored by Green Team Distribution and they'd like to give you the chance to win a Spray Collar of your own! Open to residents of the US, 18 years or older!
