How Cloth Diapers Helped Me Plus Win $50 Gift Certificate

Win $50 Gift Certificate

When my son was born, I tried diapers of every type. That was a nightmare. He was allergic to every diaper available to me. I finally realized I was going to have to use cloth diapers on him and after that, life went according to plan. Before that though, I had a lot of diaper rashes to deal with. For all you who can relate to diaper rashes being a problem, I’m going to share a diaper rash tip that I was given, that worked better than any diaper rash ointment I tried. Ivory Dish Detergent. Say what? That’s right, in a matter of days it cleared up his rash and it was the last diaper rash he had. I don’t know how but the Ivory Dish Detergent acted as a witch hazel when I added a few drops to his bath water. I started using Ivory Soap on him as well and I think that helped keep his skin allergies under control.

Cloth diapers were a challenge for me. I was a first time mom, young, and didn’t know how to begin to get started or what I’d need. I’ve never been one to let a challenge stop me though so I headed to Sears to buy diapers, liners, diaper pail, and diaper pins, oh my. I actually didn’t realize I’d need liners until I arrived at the store. Sears had everything I needed at the time but I didn’t have all of the options for cloth diapers that we have today. Using cloth diapers on my grandchildren is a lot more fun, I can tell you that. I had some white {boring} diapers and they were thin and I was constantly washing them. Now a days, there are cloth diapers of every style and as absorbent as disposable diapers. Cloth diapering has taken on a whole new meaning to me now that I have the choice to use them. I love that I’m not adding to our already full landfills to help make my grand kids future better for them as well as better for the environment.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on using cloth diapers or a tip that worked when your child had a diaper rash. Please leave a comment and add your name to my giveaway widget for a chance to win a $50 GC. You must live in the US to enter.

Friendly’s Ice Cream Flavored Single Serve Coffee & Giveaway! #friendlyscoffee

This post is brought to you by Friendly’s and Our Little Haven.

I simply cannot function without coffee. It’s the very first thing I reach for when I crawl out of bed each morning. 2 cups of coffee and the morning news is the way I love to start my day. I made the mistake one time of running out of coffee and trust me, I was not a pretty sight heading to the convenience store without makeup and my hair all messy, but I was on a mission and I didn’t care WHO saw me looking like that! That was the ONLY time I ever ran out of coffee! In the afternoons, I love a good cup of flavored coffee. It’s my little treat “for me” each day, but we live out in the country and the nearest specialty coffee shop is 30+ miles away so I had to rely on finding flavored coffee that I can brew at home in my Keurig.


I recently discovered…..drum roll please….ice cream flavored coffee by Friendly’s and I am hooked! Amazing ice cream flavors that you can enjoy in your coffee cup without all the pesky calories of real ice cream! It comes in a 40-count Keurig K-cup variety box and includes a variety of flavors:

  • Buttery Butterscotch
  • Creamy Chocolate Marshmallow
  • Decadent Vienna Mocha Chunk
  • Cool Mint Chocolate


I have really enjoyed all of the flavors in this variety pack, however, the mint chocolate is definitely my favorite! They are made from 100 % premium Arabica coffee beans that is perfectly blended with creamy Friendly’s ice cream flavors.  They are also 2.0 compatible! When that ice cream urge strikes….just grab a coffee mug and enjoy these favorite  ice cream flavors without all of the guilt!
