There are more and more options these days for bigger babies and toddlers in cloth. Best Bottom just introduced the Bigger cover, and I purchased one for Katie and me from Nicki’s Diapers to try on our toddlers. This larger size shell offers a roomier fit with 1.5 more inches in the waist and 1 more inch of rise height.

Besides the extended sizing, it’s the same design as the original Best Bottom diaper, is compatible with all the Best Bottom inserts, and is made in the USA. The new Bigger Best Bottom diapers were designed with 10 to 45+ pound babies in mind.

Bambio Mio is a household name in the UK, but the brand is also gaining popularity in the US and Canada. When I found out that you can buy them at Kelly’s ClosetWalmart.com and Amazon, we picked up some Bambino Mio products to try on Mary Kate and Ingrid.

Muslin MioSquares by Bambino Mio are made of 100% cotton and come in packs of three for about $11. Although not marketed as diapers, my first thought when I spotted them was to use them as flats. Bambino Mio does sell standard cotton prefolds as well.

Becoming a Mother for the 9th Time (+ a HALO Giveaway)

Share on FacebookPin on PinterestTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Share on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Once you “become” a mother, you’ll always be one, of course. But there’s a new rush of emotions that you experience with each subsequent child. Each pregnancy and birth is different, and the family dynamic never stays the same.

When Mary Kate (our 9th) arrived this January, I thought once again about how our family’s life was changing again:

  • Here we are, starting over again. Night-time feedings, newborn diapers and all the little baby milestones we’ll go through.
  • Another child to homeschool. Fun and challenging at the same time… 🙂
  • I’m free to spoil this child 100%. New babies don’t need to be scolded or reminded to eat their vegetables. They don’t fight with their siblings or get into trouble.
  • With more help now, caring for a new baby (and my large family) won’t be overwhelming. Catherine (13) has become Mary Kate’s second mother, and Joseph (14) is great at keeping all his younger siblings in line (haha).
  • Time to put my dresses away. I love wearing them (so comfortable and pretty!) but have never found an everyday “nursing dress” that I like. They are too short, too clingy or too expensive – or all three! And super long maxi’s are just not practical for me. (Psst: If you have some favorite nursing dresses to share, please tell me in a comment below!)
  • I can’t believe this baby is mine! Yes, sometimes I just look at this beautiful little girl, and how innocent and brand new she is, and have to pinch myself. God is so good.

This May, HALO is celebrating the special moments that remind us why it’s so wonderful to be a mother. HALO Innovations is dedicated to putting the health, safety and well-being of babies first. More than 1,400 hospitals use HALO® SleepSack® wearable blankets through the HALO Safer Way to Sleep Initiative.

There aren’t too many diapers on the market specifically for bigger toddlers or children with medical needs. If the Imagine XL pocket diaper is something you’re curious about, today’s review will give you a closer look.

It’s available to purchase for $17.95 at Nicki’s Diapers.

The Imagine XL pocket is noticeably bigger than the one-size version, and is designed to fit children from 35 to 70 pounds. Here’s the XL (green) next to a one-size for comparison.
