Healing Rashes While Cloth Diapering

Healing Balms

Written by Sherrie Cook, Contributing Writer There are many reasons to choose cloth diapers for your baby.  Many mums choose cloth to aid in the prevention of diaper rashes. Cloth diapers are breathable, allowing air to flow freely through them.  This  constant air movement provides a natural, dry environment without using harsh chemicals next to baby’s skin.  In most cases, rashes are “gone with the wind”. Unfortunately, not even using cloth guarantees a rash-free childhood for your little one.  Rashes in the diaper area can […]

Natural Bonding with Baby During Pregnancy

Guest Post Written by Michele When I was pregnant with my son, we chose not to do regular ultrasounds and other prenatal testing. This choice was met by surprise from many women, who assumed that an ultrasound/testing was essential for their information, “peace of mind,” and bonding with their unborn baby. I am not writing this to offend, but hope that in sharing my experiences, it will encourage you to find joy in the simple, traditional pursuits of natural pregnancy. I personally believe that ultrasounds or other tests should […]

This relaxed approach wove its way not only into my interactions with my baby, but […]

Take my Survey: Breastfeeding vs. Return of Menstrual Cycle

baby nursing

As a mom who delays solids, nurses for an extended period of time and offers nighttime nursing for most of the first year, my cycle takes its sweet time returning. However, I know that this isn’t the case for every mom. I hear anecdotally from a lot of moms that even frequent nursing or nighttime nursing does not prevent their cycle from coming back, and plenty of moms conceive again when their baby is under a year old (and sometimes even less than 6 months […]

No one has asked me this yet, but I can well imagine that this is the question in many of your minds,and it is an extremely legitimate question! As I’ve shard before, my journey into nutrition and natural living did not come about just because […]
