Thrifting & Cloth Diapers

I’ve talked so much about thrifting and cloth diapers here with y’all.   You know we love them both for the environment and because we find so many great things!  Cloth diapers are easy to maintain, and they cost significantly less than disposable diapers.  Disposable diapers are really just like throwing your money away, if you think about it.  That’s not disposable diaper shaming – we use them from time to time.  Disposables make road trips a lot easier.  We try to choose sustainable and less-toxic ones when we use them.  But, for us, the benefits of cloth diapers far outweigh disposables on any day.

Learning – we all accomplish it in so many different ways.  Schools that take that into consideration are top of the line, in my book.  Many countries and organizations emphasize the importance of children learning outside in nature, versus only in a classroom.  Child Care […]

Natural Baby Skincare

From the day I found out that I was pregnant, I have been obsessed with sourcing organic, natural, and eco-friendly products for Old World New Baby.  I already knew some brands that I wanted to avoid and others that I wanted to test out.  I was super excited to learn about even more brands along the way.  Instagram is the best place to do that, in my opinion.  Search a hashtag like #naturalparenting and you can find fellow parents, natural parenting conferences, and products.  Instagram is where I discovered Susan Brown’s Baby Natural Skin Care products, and I’m so glad that I happened upon their posts one day.

Thrift Haul for Baby’s Winter Clothes

Thrift Haul for Baby’s Winter Clothes

I shopped at thrift stores to stock up on their gender-neutral clothes before Greyson was born.  We wanted to be surprised so we opted to not find out his gender!  I found the cutest newborn clothes, and it was exciting shopping for our baby-to-be.  Now, we go to the thrift stores together and find all of the cute baby boy clothes that he can fit.  We love holiday sales where we get half off of all of the clothes at their already low prices.  It is even more fun and exciting anticipating his next stage in life and the upcoming season. When I shop, I buy his clothes a little too big.  It would really defeat the act of saving money by thrift shopping if I buy clothes that are too little, right?  We had fun taking photos of Greyson’s first thrift haul.  We made this haul in November and the clothes are for the winter season.  He was 2-3 months old and we purchased 3 month and 3-6 month clothes.

What We Found for Baby at the Thrift Store

Some of our finds include zip-up footed onesie (we love those better than button-up footed onesies), plaid button-up shirts, Christmas pajamas, baseball tees, an All-Star baseball outfit, sweat pants (which are soooo cute on babies), and a corduroy overall and plaid button-up outfit.  Brand name finds include Carters (plaid shirts), Gap (pants/sweats), Okie Dokie, and apparently Pooh has his own brand of clothes, too!  Read about how a Winnie the Pooh shirt was my first official thrift store purchase when I was a young girl.  Josh’s mom kept the Pooh bear book from when he was a little boy, so now it’s like a family heirloom.  It further establishes Pooh Bear as a special part of our family story! baby surrounded by clothes from thrift store baby surrounded by clothes from thrift store baby surrounded by clothes from thrift store Carters baby clothes found at a thrift store Carters baby clothes found at a thrift store winnie the pooh outfit from thrift store and heirloom book Join us on social media by following Old World New Baby on Facebook and Instagram, and by using the hashtag #oldworldnewbaby for your natural and thrifty baby adventures! xoxo mamas, papas, and tiny human caregivers Addie

Unlike old school cloth diapers that were used out of pure necessity before disposable diapers existed, cloth diapers have made a resurgence as a conscious choice.  People that use them do so for many reasons.  Financially, they are easy on your wallet.  You can create an entire […]
