The Eades Family

I LOVE Youtube! You can find pretty much anything and everything on there!
I was on Youtube a few months ago just wasting time and stumbled across a mom vlogging her newest pregnancy. As soon as I started watching I just loved watching and hearing Lucy talking very open and honestly about her 3rd pregnancy! I wish that I would had found her sooner! She talks about the previous week and how she is feeling, eating, shows her belly, measurements, and every now and then you get to see/hear the baby’s heartbeat.

Lucy & Joel have two children already, Jacelyn & Kacen, and are NOT finding out the sex of this baby! So you will definitely want to subscribe to her Youtube channel so you can get up with everything going on & which sex they will have!
She also gives out informative information!

 
How did we become The Eades Family?
At the age of 15 I met my wonderful husband, Joel. 16 we started dating, 23 he proposed, and a year later we tied the knot & rang the bells. 2 months later we were pregnant w/ identical twin’s. Over the next 8 months we had said good bye to one of our twins, and gave birth to our beautiful Groundhog’s Baby, Jacelyn Raine on February 2, 2008, just a few hours shy of her Daddy’s birthday. Only 15 months had passed before Joel delivered our son, Kacen River at home in our family bed.

Who is The Eades Family?
We are a passionate hands-on, happy family of four. We practice AP parenting, & believe in home birthing, co-sleeping, baby wearing, breastfeeding, cloth diapering, non circumcising, and keeping our babies healthy & happy!

You definitely do not want to miss out on Lucy & the rest of the Eades Family! I am subscribed and always love watching her weekly vlogs!

Stop by their fanpage and say ‘Hello’ and let them know that you heard about them from me! I hope you enjoy her blogs as much as I do 🙂

Bummas Review & Giveaway

First off, I love the name! I don’t really know why but I do!

Second, these wipes are awesome! Not only do they come in fun colors but they are just the right size for your hand. It covers my entire hand!


This wipe is laying on top of a DVD case!                   This wipe is covering my entire hand!

And, to me, they are way better then disposable ones because I don’t have to worry about them tearing when I am wiping up those messy butts and they are better for the environment! No need to wash them separately from your diapers, just toss in them with them! And no need for a special container, I just use an old wipe container that I had around!

Colorful, better for the environment, and doesn’t rip…what more could you ask for?!


#1-Inside of my wipe container. #2-Front of the packaging. #3-The Boys set that I was given to review. #4-The Tropical Set that I won in a giveaway.

Bummas are small soft, luxurious baby-sized cloths made especially for drying baby bottoms, as well as blocking those surprise squirts. And with a little douse of water, they can also replace wet wipes for clean up of sensitive bums.   They are small enough to conveniently carry on the go and durable enough to wash over and over again and won’t pill shrink or fade. 

*Eliminates the use of talcum powder. 
*100% Cotton – Woven Velour Terry Cloth milled in the USA.  
*Variety of color combinations for nursery themes.
*Handy 5” x 7” size. Won’t pill, shrink, or fade.
*Wash in like colors before use. See Warranty here.
*Durable. Just throw them in the wash and use again. 
*They will last until your little one is out of diapers and beyond!     
*Made in the USA

They have 5 different color schemes that you can pick from and each pack comes with 10 wipes! And for $16.99 each, that is not bad at all!

Our Story
The creation of Bummas came about when we had our first baby boy. When your first arrives, you are given all kinds of advice:
     “Use the wet commercial wipes, don’t use the wet commercial wipes, use gauze; use whatever is handy to block the pee; use another diaper to block the pee; don’t use that, use this; use powder to dry them off, don’t use powder-it contains talc and studies have linked talc to cancer.”
     The one thing that was never mentioned was how to dry our little guy’s “stuff” off after the clean up. Our baby’s bum was just way too wet to put a diaper back on–and blowing down there until you’re blue in the face just wasn’t working. Thus Bummas were born. A soft absorbent, luxurious baby cloth to soak up all the wetness.

The Routine
Grab a Bumma cloth wipe before opening the diaper. Sneak “attacks” are frequent and will happen the second you open the diaper!  Place the Bumma over the privates while tending to the other parts. 
     One Bumma will soak up an entire pee. Clean up baby with a regular wipe or wet a Bumma and clean up sensitive skin. Use another Bumma to thoroughly dry baby off.  Re-diaper.  If the cover Bumma gets soaked rinse it off and throw it in the wash. The payoff- a dry bum, no diaper rash, and no surprise squirts.  Save money on diapers, and save by not having to buy powder, and ointment. 

I have really enjoyed using my Bummas wipes. They are effective, soft, durable, colorful, and reuseable! I would definitely suggest buying these if you are cloth diapering or aren’t but are tired of spending so much money on disposable wipes!

What would you say to winning a 10 pack of your own? Well now is your chance! Just follow these instructions and you will entered to win! Simple, easy, and fun!

The winner will receive a 10 of wipes in their choice of colors!

Hot Topics

I have been trying to think of different ways to diversify the blog and something popped into my head this morning. We should have a Hot Topics section. I would love to hear what sort of topics that you want to talk about and/or hear about. I think that it is possible for us adults to talk about something without name calling and being hurtful towards someone if they don’t agree with your side of the topic.

So if you have a Hot Topic that you want to talk about, can be about anything (And I mean anything), either comment below or email me at mommieventures@gmail.com and put ‘Hot Topic’ in the subject line!

I will also be making a post with rules and will continue to add them as I think of them or if something happens and it needs to addressed.
Don’t be afraid to speak your mind and say your opinion! We do live in America…..Freedom of Speech!!!!!!!!!!!

Orgasmic Birth

*WARNING-NOT FOR VIEWERS UNDER THE AGE OF 18! VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED.*

Ok-now that I have given you a warning and (hopefully) the children’s eyes are somewhere else besides the computer screen, I want to talk to you all about something that has my interested peaked!

As most of you are mothers & have given birth to your child(ren), you know that labor and delivery isn’t the most pleasurable time of your life! It’s hard, painful, and a lot of work. Our minds are so far from anything to do with sex! Well expect maybe cursing your husband for getting you in this position! 🙂
But for the most part, L&D isn’t something that woman would describe as pleasurable. Am I wrong here!? I know that I am not the only one that thinks this way!

Of course I am not but there are some woman out there that would beg to differ with this statement. Who are these woman you ask and what are the smoking!? I was wondering the same thing!
A few years back when I was pregnant with my 4th child, I remember watching something like 20/20 on a Friday night (or whatever night it’s on) and hearing something about an orgasmic birth.
A what!? How in the world can orgasmic and birth be in the same sentence together!? It’s like an oxymoron!

I still don’t know a lot about this whole thing, but my interested is peaked (no pun intended) on this subject. To be able to focus on such a pleasurable thing when you are in so much pain is talented in itself…right!?

I am still reading on the website that I found about this topic and I also found the show that I had first seen this!
The video is here & the website I found is here.

I would love to hear what all you Mamas have to say about this! Is this something that you would be interested in doing with your next L&D? Do you think this is completely wack and you would never do this? Share!

Have you done this before? Was it a great experience for you like these woman in the interview describe it? Share!

Homebirths

I am very interested in homebirths. I was watching some videos on YouTube last week about them and hearing what the ladies had to say.
Now I would like to say that I don’t think hospitals are bad….I am not anti-hospital, I have had 4 children in a hospital. I still need to research this and find information on this topic. I am not very knowledgable about this topic but I wanted to share what I thought about this so far.

I think that I would like to have a homebirth the next time I have a baby. (Again, still need to do more reasearch and gather info) It seems to me that it would be more of a calming experience and place to do it. I would not want my other children to be in there with me like I have seen other woman do….that is not something that I personally want to do. I think as long as I have a low risk pregnancy then there should be no reason why I couldn’t have one.

I don’t really have much else to say about this topic because I do need more information, but I would love to hear if any of you have had one & what your experience was like. Also if you are thinking about having one I would love to hear what you have to say about this topic!

Also as I was watching a video on homebirths I came across a video about orgasmic births…..but that is another post in itself!
