And I’m thrilled to tell you that Coleen is giving one Raising Arrows reader 2 of her favorite diapers..


The winner will get to choose what type they would like:  sized snap, sized hook and loop or one size.

Hook & Loop Bottombumpers

Side Snap Bottombumpers
Here are 10 reasons why these diapers make up most of Coleen’s stash:

1. They are nice and trim, but still very absorbent.
2. They are All In One diapers with snap in soakers for quick drying.
3. The inside is made from organic cotton and the snap in soaker is topped with super soft organic bamboo velour.
4. They are available in both sized and one size versions. (Coleen prefers sized diapers.)
5. Their velcro is very durable. (Coleen likes velcro diapers best.)
6. The snap version has side snaps with a nice smooth front.
7. The quality is great
8. They are made in the USA.
9. The snaps to adjust the one size version are hidden in the back giving the front a nice clean look.
10. They have embroidered versions that are super cute.  Coleen says, “I love their latest fall diapers, especially the Love you a Bushel and a Peck diaper.  Mason had to have that one!”

I think I need to add some Bottombumpers to MY stash!

Week 20 Pregnancy Update

I know this update is going to seem like it came on the heels of last week’s update since I waited until my mid-week sonogram, but hey, 20 weeks is something to celebrate!

baby development


20 weeks always sort of sneaks up on me, but it is such a wonderful surprise!  Like I said last week, I begin to finally feel like planning for baby’s arrival at 20 weeks.  It’s all downhill from here, and often it goes really fast (at least it does until maybe the last month :) ).  So, you’ll probably see me pinning things to my Pregnancy & Baby Pinterest board:

Pregnancy & Babies Pinterest Board from Amy @ RaisingArrows.net

You’ll hopefully find me in my sewing room too!  I always like to make a little something handmade for the new baby.  Sometimes it is a simple quilt or some cute little cloth diapers, but whatever it is, it is specifically for the new baby – never owned/worn/used by another child in the household.

I also got a nursing pillow through NursingPillow.com:
Use Promotion Code raisingarrows9 TODAY!

The code on the graphic above gives you one for FREE (you’ll have to pay shipping, but it was so worth it!).  I’ve never had a “real” nursing pillow, so I’m looking forward to trying it out!

By the way, August is National Breastfeeding Awareness Month.  While I’ve never had any issues with being able to nurse in public, I know people who have.  Honestly, breastfeeding my babies is one of my favorite parts of having a new baby, and I count it as a privilege and a blessing to do so.  (If you’ve never read my article about breastfeeding Emily, I’d encourage you to do so.  I’ve also written about my Breastfeeding Journey in a series of posts HERE, but it could use an update since it ended with Baby #7).

What’s your favorite part of having a new baby?  I’d love to hear what things about that newborn stage are precious to you!

A Cloth Diaper Baby Shower!

Cloth Diaper Baby Shower {and a giveaway!} | RaisingArrows.net

{post contains affiliate links}
When I was pregnant my 3rd child, a friend kept hounding me about whether or not I was going to use cloth or disposable diapers with the new baby.  I kept putting her off because frankly, all my research had only led me to more confusion, and I wasn’t sure I was ready to commit to cloth diapering as confused as I was.  (I wish I had found a series like my Cloth Diapering Basics or an ebook like Confessions of a Cloth Diaper Convert to help me along!)

Finally, I told her I was going to use disposables.  A few weeks later, under the guise of taking me out shopping in a nearby city, she drove me instead to our church where she was hosting a diaper shower for me!

I am not usually easily surprised, but she got me that day.  I was so thrilled!  That baby shower netted me a year’s worth of diapers!

As my 3rd child neared 1 year, I was once again faced with the cloth diapering question.  I was pregnant again and the diapers from the shower were running out.  How was I going to afford 2 babies in diapers?  So, back to the internet I went in search of answers.

And that, my friends, is when our cloth diapering journey began.  That was over 8 years ago!

As I think back on that diaper shower, I wonder what it would have looked like had it been a CLOTH diaper shower.  How amazing would it have been to open package after package of colorful, soft diaper fluff, knowing it would NEVER run out?!

And can you imagine throwing a cloth diaper baby shower for one of your friends or family members?  What a tremendous blessing that would be!

A couple of years ago, I had a friend use the registry at Sweet Little Blessings to fulfill her cloth diapering dreams.  It was so much fun to shop for new fluff for her new baby!  I wasn’t able to attend her shower, but I was able to bless her just the same.  If you or someone you know is interested in cloth diapering (or already does cloth diaper), consider setting up a gift registry and having your own Cloth Diaper Baby Shower!

Today on Raising Arrows, we are going to have our own Cloth Diaper Baby Shower and a Giveaway from Sweet Little Blessings!

Cloth Diaper Baby Shower hosted by Raising Arrows & Sweet Little Blessings!

One winner will receive a 2 pack of Thirsties NEW One-Size Diapers!  They come in snaps or new improved hook and loop.  These are a favorite of Sweet Little Blessings owner, Coleen!  (I LOVE the argyle print!)
