burp cloth or diaper?

My hubby was having a hard time remembering which diapers we actually use on Ava's bottom and which ones are burp cloths, so I made a few of these during one of Ava's naps today.

Bad picture-- rain is on the way! I used some of the burp cloth diapers and some fabric scraps. I just cut the fabric to size and zigzagged it to the diaper, but if you're looking for more complete instructions, they can be found on this site.

And, here's Ava at six weeks!

Break the Bottled Water Habit

Bottled water is often marketed as being purer than other water. In the U.S.,
however, tap water is more closely regulated than bottled water, while as much
as 40% of commercially available water starts out as tap water. While bottled
water can cost as much as $10 a gallon, when you consider that only about 12% of
the plastic is recycled, the environmental expenses associated with a momentary
convenience are far greater and long-lasting.

I've pledged to use a reusable water bottle for one month (or longer!), and I'm inviting you to do the same. To sign yourself up, click on the button on the right side of the page, or visit C3. To learn more about what you can do for the earth, visit the C3 blog.
