Momma Cloth, My Review!

I thought the same when I first heard about Momma Cloth, gross right? That is what you are thinking?  I was there too.  But, the more reviews and blogs I read the more I became intrigued. I use cloth diapers for my little lady, why not use cloth for myself. The more I thought about the idea, the more it sounded do-able.

It took me quite some time to order my first set. I researched what seemed like every single WAHM and "name brand" Momma Cloth pad maker out there. I mean there were a lot! The "name brand" cloth pads were all too expensive for my taste.  They are cute and all but really, cloth pads should not cost $15.00 a piece, I am sorry.  Well, not unless they are lined with gold and silk!
Momma Cloth from CC Bums
I "liked" a page on Facebook of a WAHM who sold cloth diapers. I checked her page almost daily looking for cute patterns and debating whether or not to purchase diapers from her when I came across her Momma Cloth Pads.  They had a wonderful price on them so I inquired.  I debated and inquired again.  Finally, I got up the courage and ordered.  I purchased six pads made in the flower style and my length/absorbency specifications.  Cami was really accommodating.  I wasn't picky at all about the fabric pattern however, I did request cute and girlie, cotton and white fleece for the bottom.  Cami picked the perfect fabric for me. Visit Cami on her Facebook page and check out her wonderful items.  You'll be glad you did.  She is kind, accommodating, helpful, economical and has fast shipping!  

Find CC Bums on Facebook!

After a couple days of using my new Momma Cloth, I have fallen in love! I really like them. They are very comfortable. I am most pleased that I did not get a rash like usual. And bets of all, Momma Cloth does not leak! I'm hooked and shall be returning to CC Bums the next couple of weeks to order more! Cami, if you are reading this, Thank You from the bottom of my bottom!

The Crazy Train!
The kids taking a ride on the train at Autumnfest in our city was a hoot. Xavier took great care of his baby sister during the ride. Addison had so much fun that when the ride finished, she climbed off, crossed her arms and told the attendant, "I go again cause I want too!" Then, proceeded to pout. She only cried for a second.
Xavier was on his best behavior and only asked to go on one ride. At the booths, he only asked for a lollipop. One for him in blue raspberry and one for sister in watermelon slice. Their good behavior earned that surprise for them!

the bribe.....

I have finally figured out what bribe works to potty train my 2 year old daughter. Since some of you have little ones my daughter's age, I know you must be intrigued.
I've tried a lot if different techniques with my son and nothing worked. I mean NOTHING! After about a year of trying, we gave up and decided to let him go when he was ready. In a few months, he trained himself. Because of the difficulty with my son, I wasn't going to push the issue with my daughter. However, she is in daycare twice a week and they are pushing for her to start training.
I tried a few times over the past few months without success. She has been happy to sit on the big girl potty but, does not do well with a portable kids potty. She prefers to use the big toilet with a potty seat on top. She would sit but did not understand how to go. I was okay with this because she was not afraid like her brother had been while training.
Over the past few days, Addy has successfully used the potty but not without a little Mumma encouragement! This brings me to the reason for my post. So without further introduction here is how I have helped my daughter to go on the potty. A little Mumma dance called, "I did pippy on the potty." :)

The Lyrics
I did pippy in the potty.
I did pippy in the potty.
All sung while doing a hokey pokey like dance and my daughter loves it!
