Design Cloth Diapers (Pañales Artesanales)

The freedom to be able to have a cute design that probably nobody else has, saving money and helping the planet reduce some waste.

How to make Cloth Diaper Inserts / Como hacer Insertos para Pañales de Tela

Since I got pregnant for the second time I decided to give cloth diapers a try from the beginning. With my first son I started when he was 15 months and I know the importance of having good inserts to us them with but being honest they can be a little pricey to buy a bunch online. This is why I decided to make my own.

Minos Moka Espresso Coffee Maker Review

 Having 2 kids at home can be a little too much at times, and that can lead to sleep deprivation and lack of energy. That's why I always tend to have a nice cup of coffee every morning to charge before I start my day, which usually consists on making up at 5 am and going to sleep at 11pm.
That's why when I received this coffee maker I was excited to try it and see the art that make it to brew a nice cup of espresso.

One Size Diaper Cover Tutorial Flip Style with Leg Gussets

This is my second time cloth diapering and it was challenging since I started with my first boy when he was 18 months. Checking with friends I heard the covers are a great option when cloth diapering small babies since they requiere to be changed more often.

But getting ready for the arrival can be quite an expense and I just couldn't justify buying different kinds of cloth diapers. So I decided to give it a try to make covers and I'm not going to lie, the first ones I made were not perfect but they worked and after a couple they turned out better.

For this reason I decided to share this tutorial with all of you who wish to make your own diapers.
Esta es la segunda vez que utilizo pañales de tela y fue un reto ya que empece con mi primer hijo cuando el tenia 18 meses. Platicando con amigas me comentaron que las cubiertas son una gran opción cuando se utiliza los pañales de tela especialmente con bebes pequeños ya que requieren ser cambiados mas frecuentemente.

Pero prepararse para la llegada de un nuevo integrante puede ser un poco caro y no pude justificar comprar diferentes tipos de pañales. Así que decidí probar hacer las cubiertas y no voy a mentir, los primeros no me salieron tan bien pero funcionaron y después de algunos intentos salieron mejor.

Por esta razón decidí hacer este tutorial para ustedes que desean hacer sus propios pañales.

Pregnancy pants tutorial

I love saving money for the things that are really important, spending a weekend taking the kids to the movies or date night with the hubby. And when it comes to buying clothes I just cant justify getting a new pair of pants that will only fit me for a couple of months. That's why I decided to figure out a way to be able to keep using the jeans I had during my pregnancy.

Me encanta ahorrar dinero para las cosas que son realmente importantes, como ir de fin de semana con los niños a las peliculas o talvez una cita con el maridito. Y cuando se trata de comprar ropa no puedo justificar el tener que comprar pantalones nuevos que solo podre usar unos cuantos meses. Por eso decidi que tenia que buscar una manera de alterar mis pantalones para poder seguir usandolos durante el embarazo.
