Glow Bug Cloth Diaper Review & Giveaway

Hubby and I have gone back and forth on the whole cloth diapering debate for months. Even before Munch a bunch was born we were unsure what we were going to do. I wanted to try it and he did not. Disposables are so much more convenient and etc. but now they have so many new types of cloth diapers that are so easy to use! So I’ve decided I’m going to try it out.

Glow bug is a company that was founded by two moms looking for affordable, stylish, and durable cloth diapers to diaper their children in. Therefore, Glow Bug Cloth Diapers came to be! I’ve always loved the reasoning behind their name. “Glow bug” is a nickname for one of their kids and they thought cloth diapers make them look like little bugs! Adorable. I can totally see a little glow bug when I look at a cloth diaper fluff butt!

Onto the diaper! I am in love. Pocket diapers with a front and back opening are totally the way to go. They are super easy to stuff and come complete with a snap in the front to snap the liner in. You don’t even need to unstuff them when you toss them in the laundry! Just unsnap the snap and let the washer agitate it out. No more touching yucky insides!

The inside of the glow bug is some of the softest material I’ve ever felt (Slimdry Fabric) and it’s really absorbent. We didn’t have any leaks here! The double gusset (now 360 degree gussets!) and hip snap features also really help to contain any leaks that could have happened. There’s also a waterproof PUL flap in the front so glow bug really focused on key features to keep everything contained.

There’s a 4 step rise setting and cross over snaps to help it fit the smallest newborn up to the potty training toddler. I also found the snaps really easy for me to snap and unsnap and they were a lot more secure than some other brands I’ve tried in the past. All in all I’m a very satisfied user!

The one downside about purchasing Glow bugs is that they are not sold individually but that's what keeps them so cost friendly. They come in a 12 pack packed inside a free wetbag.

SHOP: Shop at glow bugs and get 12 diapers for $150 or 6 for $75. Be sure to mention Onna Wanna Deal sent you! Just in time for the new design & prints!

Also be sure to join the Glow Bug mailing list for your chance to win a diaper each week! Connect with them on Twitter and Facebook as well!

Happy Friends and Family!

Being a mom, it has become increasingly important to get out and do things from time to time either with baby or without. Happy Monday is all about happy friends. Last week we went out with some (family) friends and headed out to a farm. We walked around and looked at the baby animals and had a blast!

Spring is the best time to go to a farm. …I mean just look how stinking cute this little lamb is! Adorable and I totally want one. Oh, and nursing piglets! Hey, they can do it in public we should be able to too! Hehehe. Look how cute the mom is cuddling up with the two in her arms.

Little one may have slept the entire time but at least we got out and got some fresh air. I’ve noticed cabin fever can really stink after just having a baby. Sometimes you get so caught up with your new life that you forget there's still a great big world out there going about their day to day. 3 months later and I’m forcing myself to get out and be active. 

What kinds of things do you enjoy doing to get out of the house with a new baby? (Especially when the weather is nice?) - I need some more ideas!!

Take a walk on the wild side!

Wordless Wednesday is all about Disney Parks Wild Side. Although normally I would think of Animal Kingdom, I went with something I think is super Wild. The stunt show! It seriously blows my mind!

A day in the life...

Toddle Along Tuesday today is all about a day in the life. Not going to lie…right now…our life is pretty dang lazy. Little one wakes around 4 or 5 AM, eats, and goes right back to sleep.

Around 7 or 8 AM she wakes and wants a diaper change and a little play time before conking out again till 9 or 10. She eats, plays and naps for most of the day. So sad…we have no lives :] I basically just try to follow her ques for now. She's pretty good most of the time trying to get across what she wants.

Anyway, when daddy gets home sometimes I go to work but normally not during the week and now that it’s getting nicer out we’ve been going on walks!

By 9 she’s been getting pretty dang fussy so we start her bedtime routine around then adjusting time a little if she’s super tired or awake. She’s generally asleep by 10 or 10:30 and then I have some me time for a while before heading to bed myself.

Honestly though…with a 3 month old, we have absolutely no schedule set what so ever. Normal? When did you start having your little one on a schedule?

Super Cheesy Mac and Cheese!

I feel like a homemade mac and cheese recipe is a staple in families. People are always looking for the best. I'm not sure I would consider this one the best...my grandma's holds that title...but this is really good :] So good we ate it all before I got a picture! Recipe was found at Clever, Crafty, Cookin Mama.

- 1 box pasta
- 4 tbsp butter
- 1 can cheddar cheese soup
- 1 can evaporated milk
- 2 cups cheddar cheese

1) cook pasta, drain, and return to warm pot
2) add butter, soup, and half can of milk
3) add cheese, if needed adding more milk to make it creamier

Yes, it is that easy!

Oh my gosh my golly...it's not time for mistletoe and holly. Okay, even I admit that was super corny but I am super excited it's starting to get warm here! That means it's almost time to open the windows and blast the radio. Spring is full of wonderful things! Geocaching, walks, bike rides, flying kites, exploring, gardening, SUNSHINE! I love the warm sunshine.

Oh, another thing I love about Spring? Spring cleaning! Seriously. I don't know how we accumulate so much stuff but it's time to reorganize everything. I'm looking for some good organizing and cleaning ideas so what are some of your favorite tricks and tips?

PS. Packed away a few newborn outfits. ...I may or may not have teared up a bit. Luckily, she's nearly 3 months and still fitting in them. ...I birthed a peanut.

My ode to sleep...

Sleep is such a wonderful thing. This blog post really serves no purpose other than for me to boast about getting a full nights sleep Friday night. It. Was. Blissful.

Although, I did wake up at 4:45 like I was expecting something. I turned over, saw a sleeping baby, and got thoroughly confused. I shouldn’t complain as we only get up for about 15 minutes once at like 3 or 4 but it was great!

Now if only I could figure out what made Friday night so special…When did your little one start sleeping through the night? Did you do anything different or did it just kind of start happening one night?
