Bianca and Nola’s Overall Newborn Cloth Diapering Experience

Before the time comes that my Nola Baby is no longer a newborn but an infant (tears), I wanted to write an overview of the newborn diapers we used in her first 10 weeks. At her last appointment a week ago, she was 9lbs 15 ounces. So basically she should already be 10lbs! She is growing way too fast. We are currently doing a mix of cloth diapers and disposable diapers. I know there will be a time when we are strictly cloth, but for the time being a mix of both is what works well for our family.

The first diaper Nola wore was a pink newborn THX All in One. She was 2 days old. I loved these diapers! They fit so well and the umbilical cord snap down was a great feature! Although a great fit, as she started growing, the diaper started to absorb less. I had a couple of leaks with these. Specs: umbilical cord snap down, waterproof PUL outside layer, an absorbent core, and a microfleece inner layer, manufacturer recommendation: 6-12 pounds.

Two Things This Breastfeeding Mom Won’t Leave Home Without

Bianca received nursing pads for review purposes. If you click and buy, we may receive a small commission, thank you. There are two items that I never leave home without since returning to work after giving birth to my baby Nola.

  1. My super awesome Spectra S2 Pump.
  2. My Geffen Baby Nursing Pads.

Nola is now 8 weeks old, almost two months! I feel like had her, blinked, and I was back at work. Thankfully my employer is super supportive of my breastfeeding and I am able to pump while at work.

This is my first time working full time and having an infant at home though I’ve breastfeed all three of my kids. I pumped and donated milk with my first and I went back to work part time when my second was a little over one year old, so I really didn’t have to pump much, if at all. Circumstances are different this third time around, and I am pumping two times while at the office.

Buttons Newborn Cloth Diaper Review

Bianca received a diaper for review purposes. If you click & buy, we may receive a small commission, thank you! Before Nola was born, I was asked if I would like to try a Buttons Newborn cloth diaper once baby arrived. My answer – YES! I was so excited, because I’ve heard so many good things about this super cute All in Two diaper brand, but had not used one before. It’s the diaper with a button on the bum! Who could resist?

My Experience as a WIC Breastfeeding Peer Counselor

Growing up I have many memories of my mother going to the local health department when we lived in Long Beach and our family receiving WIC services. The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) is a federal assistance program of the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for healthcare and nutrition of low-income pregnant women, breastfeeding women, and infants and children under the age of five. (Source:

When I found out I was pregnant with our first in 2011, signing up for WIC was one of the first things I did. Although my husband and I, actually boyfriend at the time, were together, we were not legally married. He had a steady part-time job, and I had a minimum wage job working at a local grocery store. Both first-time parents, there was a lot we had to learn and figure out. Thankfully my mother urged me to sign up for WIC. And it was one of the best things that I would ever do.
