Cloth Baby Wipes 101

Pinterest Image for Baby Wipes

We use cloth diapers for Cora so naturally we make our own cloth baby wipes as well.  If we used disposable wipes then a second diaper pail would be needed – not efficient.  With cloth wipes you can just throw them in the diaper pail with the cloth diapers to be washed at the same time.

Breastmilk Bottle Feeding & Storage Guidelines

I like to create cheat sheets for myself, husband, and babysitters so everyone is on the same page for how to properly care for the baby.  Feel free to print the PDF version if this cheat sheet would be helpful to you!

Cora’s First Easter

Family Photo
Happy Easter from the DeSmidts!

This was our first Easter (and holiday) with baby Cora.  I am thankful we had this holiday to adjust to being a family of 4 before we took on trying to celebrate a holiday with ALL of our families.   Don’t get me wrong, it would have been wonderful to have seen everyone but I think I would have collapsed from exhaustion.
