Hi All--I think this falls within the Earth Mamas and Papas purview....anyone know of any home remedies for a sinus infection? My big little guy (3 year old) has one.

New here, just poking around to see what it's all about.  I love cloth diapering, and even though my last little one is out of diapers now, I still love to discuss it.  Anyone else a cloth diapering fan?

I cloth diapered my first with mostly made-by-me fitteds and recycled wool longies. I'm cloth diapering my second too, but I did buy a bunch because wetness was leaving a terrible rash and I didn't want to get into sewing synthetics like PUL.

There are so many great options these days!  Have you tried using the microfleece liners to wick the wetness away from your baby's skin?

I'm working on a new writing project. Ask your little boys, big boys, husbands, or other men in your life: "Why do little boys need a tree house?" Give name credit, state of residence, and age to be included. Can't wait to read these responses!

Hi, I'm new to this group. :)

We're expecting our first child to arrive sometime in July of 2014, so it's getting to the point where touching base with other parents might be prudent.

Unlike many Americans, although we had an ultrasound at the 20 week mark (the cost of opting out of other prenatal screening), we did not find out the gender. So we're going with the working title of "Peanut" until we know what we're having.

Comment by Dwysquietide on March 3, 2014 at 5:44pm

We didn't find out with all three so I totally understand. I figure it is one of two and it is irrelevant in terms of preparedness for an infant since we do not color code baby items nor wish for a ballet dancer or monster truck driver or any such thing, just that when they are older they can be what they like.
