Do you know if that miraclediaper website still exists? I tried it, but it wasnt found. I am trying desperately to keep DD in cloth, but we dont have much!

Edit: Nevermind I found the website. Lets hope this works!

Well it appears to work now. You're one step up on me, because I can't hand-code. I can't write pages from scratch but I can find errors in other people's stuff.

Aren't they just great here? I too have been touched by fabulous mamas in regards to diapering. I love posts like this. Makes me all teary eyed and happy.

I too have met angels here on mdc- i fully believe that God puts giving people in our path when we really need them. i also believe He puts those who need something we can offer them in our paths when we are able to offer assistance.

Knowing that you got the dipes I sent and that you love them is all the thanks I need. I know what it is like to not have enough money, Momma, and little Autumn looks so cute surrounded by all that fluff.
Love ya Sabbath!:

How great, mama!! That is a BEAUTIFUL stash and you have a gorgeous little one to match!

We too have been recently touched by two very kind MDC mamas who helped us get DS some shoes. My DH was amazed that people actually DID that...he couldn't believe that people that didn't even know us, had never even met us, cared so much about us. It was overwhelming to be so blessed by their gestures. It's definitely not something you would expect this day and time - things are hard for everyone, and for people to take time to care about you...time that could be spent doing anything else, it's just...well...indescribable. MDC is truly capably of changing lives.

Isn't it sad that we have to be suprised? I wish that this was commonplace, but then things like this would be common. It's special and wonderful and magical, and for that I love it, but I wish it was at least a bit more common to see such selfless love being flung around!

MDC really DOES rock!! I have a friend IRL (who also posts here) and she very generously made me 14 diapers (pockets) for my boys for school. I was using prefolds/covers but that's not the most user friendly, ya know?

She made them all in less than 2 weeks WITH a year old nursling. I have NO idea HOW she did it!! She was/is amazing! Because of her wonderful assistance, my boys are cloth diapered at school and others are exposed to a very cool way of diapering that's environmentally friendly and adorable, to boot (or should I say butt, lol)

I am so excited - that same friend is moving back to my town in less than 3 months. I can't wait!!

She's gotten me totally hooked on sewing, too.

I have to admit, my boys are in 'sposies for the first time in gosh, a LONG time, and I HATE them!! My nursling just had a horrid blowout - and his clothes were covered in ickyness as well as mine - I was holding him at the time of the explosion.

That NEVER would have happened in cloth. I am SURE of it.

The only reason they're in sposies is 'cause my washer is toast and repairman won't be here til tomorrow, so I thought I'd have less laundry to get caught up on if I didn't cloth.

I hate SPOSIES!

Oh, and I've filled up TWO kitchen trash bags since yesterday - just of disposables and wipes. I feel so irresponsible and guilty about this extra garbage . . . sigh. . . .

But I can't do $8 at laundromat each day. That'll kill me.

Hey JB - your baby is too cute, too! I had fun looking at the pics.

Wanna see my babies?

I think it's current thru Sept 30 - I haven't uploaded any videos in a while, though - it's hard to narrow down all the possibles. . . .
