Conklin Dairy Farms Video Shows Dairy Cows Being Violently Abused, Says Mercy For Animals (VIDEO)

Conklin Dairy Farms Video Shows Dairy Cows Being Violently Abused, Says Mercy For Animals (VIDEO)

So I was completely mortified reading and watching the video on this Ohio Dairy Farm that was brutalizing their cows and calves. Please be aware if you and to read and watch the video that it is not for the weak at heart. I cried while watching it. It amazes me how people treat animals. And to think, one of those cows could have been your dinner last night :(

Don't forget!!

Don't forget about the giveaway I currently have going.  What to Expect: The Toddler Years.  All you have to do is give me your favorite cloth diaper or baby essential item and help me start off my 5 week long review on products.  I am looking for several products to review.  I want you, my readers, to learn and expand your minds to other products than what you are currently using.

Miabelle will be 6 months soon!

Can I say OH MY!!!  My baby turns 6 months on June 15.  Where has the time gone?  She is sitting up on her own for about 10 minutes.  She loves to play (but only if mommy or daddy is playing) and she is becoming such a little pistol.  Mind you she is already my little drama queen.

She got her first swimming pool this weekend and had so much fun in it.  It is amazing that she was in it for 30 whole minutes before crying...but that's only cause water went up her nose.  But she loved it.

She is a great baby. But anyways hope you enjoyed seeing her as much as I enjoy being around her.

Dr. Harry Zehnwirth

Sounds for Silence

I am excited to announce that I won a giveaway that Dr. Harry Zehnwirth had on his Facebook page. And because of it I going to receive Sounds for Silence. I can not wait to receive this and plan on doing a full review on it.  I have a 5 month old and have to say sometimes I have no idea what to do when she starts crying and nothing I am doing works.  So I have to say I am very hopeful in this product.

Check him out on Facebook, Twitter, or at his blog.

The tracks are a unique combination of sounds that distract, engage and then soothe a crying baby. What’s the difference between these sounds and others, such as lullabies? Put simply, they work! The whole program includes the proven Sounds for Silence Soundtracks, plus a no-nonsense Parenting Manual that cuts through the outdated conventions and beliefs of child rearing. Be reassured and uplifted, and realize that you are not alone. All young babies have fussy, crying periods. Read this book before you start to panic!
Chapters in the book include:

  • Intuition
  • Infant irritability
  • Strategies for managing irritability
  • Baby sleep and settling
  • Feed, play, sleep
  • Helpful general information
  • Scary episodes
  • The preterm infant (prematurity)
  • Alarm bells
  • Harry's maxims - the minimum you should know
  • Family stories
  • Troubleshooting
  • More information
  • Behavior diary
Now how does all this sound to you? I am really intrigued and can not wait to receive my copy.  Will let you know how it goes with a full review.

Win What to Expect the Toddler Years (Paperback) Giveaway ENDS June 12th~ EXTENDED till June 14th! ~CLOSED~

Real Diaper Association - Cloth Diapering Advocacy

Have you heard of this website? What have you learned from this website that you did not know before? I am a cloth diaper advocate and I believe that everyone should use cloth diapers not only for the benefit it has on the earth but the benefit it has on your baby's skin. Not only does it keep those nasty rashes from occurring from the chemicals that are in disposables but it also can be cheaper in the long run.

However, I do find that being an advocate for cloth diapers is not enough. Where I am it is only possible to get cloth diapers from online. Not that I think that is bad, but there are no retail stores to go to. I do not know about you but I like to see and feel the diaper. Which is one reason I had to buy SEVERAL diapers to determine which diapers I liked.

Now time for the fun part. I want to know why you chose cloth diapers? What your favorite diapers are? What shops do you buy from?

Now these questions are not only to learn more about you but also to enter you into a giveaway. What is this giveaway for? This giveaway is for What to Expect the Toddler Years (Paperback) by the company we have all learned to love.

Facebook | Krap Katchers

How is that for a name for a Cloth Diaper company? They are based in Australia but their "nappies" are great from what I can see. I am contemplating ordering one to try it. Is $16 US to high for shipping?? Maybe?
