Cloth Confession #3

I keep waiting for the smell…

cloth-diapers-line

While trying to figure out if I should cloth diaper or not I read a lot of discussion boards aimed toward cloth mommas. A common concern I saw was that the diapers after a time would start to smell like ammonia or they couldn’t get the poopy smell out.

**Side note have you ever done something kind of strange and thought, “wow I’ve turned into a freak…well other moms must do it….ok this isn’t so weird”**

I now find myself constantly sniffing my daughters diapers while hanging them to dry, while stuffing the inserts, and while putting them up (now the side note makes sense right?). I guess I’m washing them correctly or I’m just lucky! 3 months in and still no smell…maybe it takes longer to develop? Honestly I’m stumped on this one but excited at the same time that I don’t have to deal with a stinky baby or unpleasant diapers 🙂

Freedom for Birth World Premier

Thursday September 20th – showings at 10:00 1:00 and 4:00

Hosted by Allen Birthing Center

406 W. Main Allen, TX 75013

What is Freedom for Birth? This powerful excerpt from freedomforbirth.com tells just a little bit about this worldwide revolution.

  • “Freedom for Birth” is more than just a film. It marks the beginning of a movement that will focus global attention on the violations of women’s rights during childbirth all around the world.
  • All women should have the right, protected by law, to decide where and how they give birth.
  • The problem is that the rise of a dominant obstetric “machine” is robbing women of this right.
  • The result is that many women are being subjected to medical interventions and c-sections they neither want or need.
  • Tragically, midwives, the very guardians of normal birth, are being persecuted and criminally prosecuted to the extent that some have even been imprisoned.
  • “Freedom for Birth” will highlight the human rights abuses happening right now in North America, Europe, Australia and beyond.
  • And, the film will offer up a solution that can help protect womens’ rights
  • And that solution involves you!

Since this is our first event we wanted to do something affordable for everyone. So we thought what’s better than a picnic at the park?!?!

Simply bring a blanket, snacks, and of course your kiddos.

No RSVP necessary. We will set up around the main pavilion close to the play set so older kids can run around.

If the turn out is good and there is a lot of interest, we’ll look in to hosting larger events!

See you at the park!
