Toddler Meal Time Fun with Replay Recycled

Splash In The Sun with Bummis

Since having Petit Prince I’ve learned a few things about parenting. There are just so many things that I did with The Heir that I have not done with Petit Prince. You know the old adage that no two babies are alike? Well, it’s so very true. You know what I didn’t have with The Heir? Child friendly dishes. I’m not even kidding. Okay, that’s not 100% true, I think I had two plastic bowls. That was it. The Heir ate off our regular porcelain plates and drank from ceramic cups and mugs for the vast majority of his meals from the time we introduced solids until, well now. Somehow he made it through all this without ever breaking a plate or cup. So naturally, I figured I’d do the same thing for Petit Prince. There was only one small problem. Petit Prince was not like his brother and had no qualms about swiping plates and cups right off the table without a moment’s notice. I used to have a complete set of eight side plates and eight saucers. I now have just four of each. Those that remain are covered in chips along the edges. This is where Re-Play Recycled comes in. Re-Play has changed my opinion of child friendly dishes, and saved the few remaining pieces in my set of grown up dishes!  Read More

Eco-Friendly Disposables? Meet Andy Pandy Premium Bamboo Disposable Diapers (+coupon code & GIVEAWAY)

Splash In The Sun with Bummis

As a cloth diapering family, we try our best to make eco-friendly choices whenever we can. I use reusable menstrual products for myself, Petit Prince is in cloth diaper, we use cloth wipes for more than just wiping bums, and we recently started composting (thank you City of Calgary for introducing a city-wide composting program). Although I don’t find cloth diapering to be inconvenient in the least, sometimes it’s nice to take a little break from cloth. Cloth diapering doesn’t have to be all or nothing. Some families use cloth diapers only at home, others use cloth diapers only for day time, and others prefer not to travel with cloth diapers when they take a family vacation. Our family recently took a summer vacation to the West Coast (Vancouver and Vancouver Island), and though we were staying with family who have laundry machines we decided not to pack Petit Prince’s cloth diapers. Why? There were a few reasons. First, I was flying out with the two kids on my own and wanted to minimize how many suitcases I needed to bring. Second, sometimes it’s nice not the have to do laundry on vacation. I opted to bring disposable diapers instead, and I don’t regret it at all. My eco-friendly lifestyle wasn’t thrown out the window for this vacation though. I opted to take eco-friendly, biodegradable disposable diapers for Petit Prince. Yup, that’s a thing! What are these disposable diapers I speak of? They are Andy Pandy Premium Bamboo Disposable Diapers! Here’s what you need to know about them.  Read More

Lalabye Baby Cloth Diaper Review (+GIVEAWAY)

Lalabye Baby Cloth Diaper Review

Splash In The Sun with Bummis

Lalabye Baby cloth diapers have been on my radar for a really long time. It’s one of those brands that I hear so many great things about, but just hadn’t been able to get my hands on until recently. Finding Lalabye Baby in Canada has been challenging, and with the Canadian dollar where it is, buying from the USA is just too expensive. I have great news for Canadian cloth diapering families that have been hoping to try Lalabye Baby diapers without having to budget for the exchange rate! Lollypop Kids is now carrying Lalabye Baby! Lollypop Kids is a Canadian retailer based out of Ontario that carries all the best cloth diaper and babywearing brands. When Jennifer of Lollypop Kids decided to bring Lalabye Baby in, I was beyond thrilled! Do Lalabye Baby cloth diapers live up to their hype? Are they as trim and absorbent as people say? I’ve put Lalabye Baby to the test on Petit Prince, and I have a whole lot to say about them! Read More

After the recent heat wave here in Calgary, it’s fair to say summer is in full swing. One of the ways we like to keep cool is to fill up the kiddie pool and turn on the sprinkler in the backyard. This is pretty well a daily occurrence for us all summer long, so Petit Prince needs some sun safe attire to keep him protected from all those UV rays. This is where Bummis Splash line comes in! Bummis Splash line includes reusable swim diapers, UV Tees and Tankinis, and hats. Aside from being super functional, the Splash line is filled with stylish prints so your little one can rock their summer look from head to toe!  Read More
