Snuggy Baby Coupon Code!!!

0 comments
Snuggy Baby is an online store that specializes in Adjustable Ring Slings and Wet bags. They have some of the most adorable baby doll slings for kiddos! They also have some of the cutest wet bag fabrics that I've seen.

As I was looking for sponsors for A Merry Fluffy Christmas , I found Snuggy Baby and contacted her. She is already working with another blogger on board with our giveaway so stay tuned for that! She did offer to give my readers a 10% off discount to anything in her store!

Jo from Snuggy Baby is a work at home mommy with one little one and a preschooler.
After her first daughter was born, she couldn't find anywhere to buy a sling. Desperation is often the mother of invention and Jo taught herself how to make ring slings. After getting so much positive feedback about her own sling, she decided to make them available to all parents.

Since she desgined and tested these slings herself, she knows they are comfortable, fashionable and of only the highest quality! She says, "I built the perfect Ring Sling for myself, and I would love to share it with you."

To use the coupon code visit Snuggy Baby anytime between now and October 31,2010 and receive 10% off your ENTIRE purchase! Enter "knockedupandnursing" at the time of checkout!

Go give her some love on Facebook and Twitter too!

Wool, Oh How I Love You!

2 comments



I just got my first wool soaker in the mail on Friday and, I have to say, I LOVE it!
After i got my first fitted diaper a couple months ago, I started to really understand why people were using fitteds and covers. I also started looking at the different cover options. I had a Wonder Wrap PUL cover that was working great. I, however, wanted to know what else was out there.

I had read about the benefits of wool nursing pads and heard a lot about wool as an option for covers. With a tight budget, I was longing for the time when we could afford a wool cover. Lo and behold, I won a $20 gift certificate from Love Lies Here to FiberFidelity. Theresa specializes in handknit wool covers and also has wetbags and legwarmers. This prize had come at a great time! I chose the cover pictured above, a red and blue handknit soaker.

Luckily, when my fluff mail arrived, I had clean fitteds waiting to be used!
James didn't need a fuzzi change but we did it anyway! It fit him perfect (sorry I don't have any pictures with it on him....). I think it makes him feel like a big boy because he can help with diaper changes by pulling the cover up and down. The merino wool is super soft and not at all scratchy like i thought it might be. Very brilliant and vibrant colors! I was really happy with the quality too.

Overall, I'd suggest a wool soaker to everyone! It is extremely easy to use. Now I just need to learn how to lanolize and wash it. More to come on that. Stay tuned as I journey through wool!

Head on over to Fiber Fidelity and give her some Etsy love!

How to Measure Your Baby for Diaper Covers

0 comments
I've always wondered what the correct way to measure baby for covers and other diapers that don't do sizing just by poundage was. I recently won a gift certificate to The Diaper Wagon by way of The Review Stew and came across this great info on how to measure your babe!
(From the Diaper Wagon website listing for Twee Baby Wool Longies:)

"Measurements should be taken while your child is wearing his/her bulkiest diaper. Wool interlock is incredibly soft and stretchy, making sizing quite forgiving.

  • Waist measurements should be taken at the level of 1 inch below the belly button.
  • To measure the Rise go from the top of the diaper in the front down thru the legs and back up to the top of the diaper in the back. Add 1-2 inches for good coverage.
  • Inseam is measured from crotch to hem. The easiest way to take an inseam measurement is from a pair of pants that fit your child well. "
Finally, some easy to understand measuring guides! Thanks Twee Baby and The Diaper Wagon for the great info!

By the way, go give The Diaper Wagon, The Review Stew and Twee Baby some love.

New blog look and changed URL

1 comments
So, I was playing around with blog templates and decided it was time to upgrade. As you can see, It looks purdy! I attempted to re-write some HTML code last night and was successful! I actually squealed when i picked the right value to change! My husband laughed at me, but i felt like i had accomplished something as major as a bomb disarming.

I also changed the URL from intothemindofastayathomemom.blogspot.com
to knockedupandnursing.blogspot.com because i actually figured out how to change those things!

Anyways let me know if anyone is having problems!
I'd love feed back!

As always,
good luck!

Adventures of a Domesticated Mama is having a giveaway for a Mother Ease One size diaper and an Air Flow cover. Super easy entries from a great mama blogger. I 've heard raves about Mother Ease and their products but have not had the chance to try any of their diapers. We recently bought a Mother Ease diaper pail. I love it!!!! It has a carbon filter to neutralize the stinkies! Anyways, good luck!
