Baby and Budget Friendly Diapers

Mamas I finally found it! The diaper that is both easy on my baby’s bottom and my bank account! While I was pregnant I read about all the harmful chemicals in so many household and skin care products including diapers and wipes. I made sure all of Cora Beth’s shampoo, soaps, lotions, and diaper creams were free of the harmful chemicals. I even bought her an organic mattress and mattress cover.

Second Trimester Recap

I hit 28 weeks this past Thursday, officially putting me in my third trimester! And no one is more surprised than me that this pregnancy has flown by so far! Although I have a feeling it’ll start to slow down as I approach my due date!

I thought it might be fun to recap my second trimester more for me to be able to go back and read later on as I start to forget than for any other reason! I wish I had thought to do it with my first trimester but it was basically 13 weeks of exhaustion and some nausea.
