  1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the g Diapers Bridget. I liked the few I had. Of course, when I had mine, I wasn’t breastfeeding at the time, so maybe that’s what made the difference??

    Who knows why one type works for one person and not another! It’s great to hear all sides and experiences.

  2. Giveaway has been closed early! I’m not sure why, but this giveaway hasn’t received any comments at all! Therefore we are closing this giveaway and re-evaluating if this is the best way to get our community involved. Maybe its a bad time of year, maybe my readers are not interested in giveaways. Regardless, for now, I am not planning any giveaways in the near future.

  3. Congratulations Jackie Glagola, you were my one and only entry! I will be announcing your name on Facebook and will ask that you PM me your info. Thanks

  4. Pat, I have never encountered any problems using Seventh Generation however it has been shown to irritate the eyes and skin in human and animal studies. The severity of irritation increases with the concentration. I think it also depends on each persons unique sensitivity. So yes, sodium lauryl sulfate can be a skin irritant.

  5. Hi Jess & Thank you for that excellent question! You’ll need a 350+ BLB fluorescent black light, which is the ideal light source to reveal optical brighteners! Screw-In black lights like incandescents will not work. I recently upgraded my blacklight to the Escolite UV Flashlight and I love it! There are cheaper models available that cost about half of what this one cost however they are half the size and not nearly as bright. My eyes are not as good as they use to be!

  6. Congratulations! You are our winner in the #FluffFridayGiveaway – Please Head on over to our Facebook page and PM me your Full Name and Mailing address

  7. has an article on how to remove the optical brighteners, once removed they are gone for good unless you wash the clothes in a detergent that has the brighteners in them again. the article is here: I followed the instructions on that page and switched to this brand – I suppose I should write a post about the huge difference I noticed in my baby’s rashes – lack of. Prior to researching optical brighteners, I used Foca.. cheap and I felt it worked really well. I never associated the “heat bumps” and skin rashes because they were so mild. I just assumed it was baby acne! Now? No baby acne? Weird, huh?

  8. Cheer laundry detergent does not have optical brighteners. Too bad P&G has been minimizing this brand and becoming harder to find. Most stores that carry it will now have liquid or powder, but not both.

    Hi Jonathan,
    I looked into this, as promised and unfortunately, All but one of the Cheer products do have optical brighteners. Here is a list of what I found along with the source:

    The Only one that I found free of optical brighteners was Cheer stay colorful Powdered Detergent – Fresh Clean. This products only brightener” is Sodium Percarbonate which is a combination of sodium carbonate and hydrogen peroxide. This is a chemical and exposure to the pure chemical can cause burns, skin irritation, eye irritations, and even blindness! However, it is not an “optical” brightener. I will be adding this one to our list, Thanks for bringing my attention to this one! Appreciate it!!

  9. Thanks Jonathan! I will look into it. Appreciate your pointing this out to me. It’s really hard to keep up with all of the brands. That’s why user input like yours is so important to me. The more we know, the better we can make educated choices. Hope to hear more from you

  10. Have you tried Facebook? I’m sure there are several “groups” – which are like forums. I would start there. Hope this helps

  11. Thank you, Lindsay, your too kind. Hope to see more of you around here.

  12. Your welcome

  13. You are very welcome! I received your facebook message this morning and will have the “Bambo Nature USA Snuggle Time Both Lotion” sent to you. I have my sister in law take care of shipping the prizes. She is pretty quick at getting them out, so you should have it within a week. If it has not arrived within 10 days, please let me know so I can track it down.

    Just as a reminder, you are still eligible to win future prizes, so please feel free to enter our upcoming promotion.


    PS. We don’t actually have sponsors. I decided when I started this blog that in order for readers to connect with me and feel like they were getting an unbiased view of a product, it would be best if that product was actually something I use and love! I don’t know, I just feel like when I read a blog that has a “sponsored” prize/review, how honest can the reviewer really be.. I mean the blogger needs to stay in good standing with the sponsor/company right? It all feels a little too one-sided to me, so I only promote products I use myself, have tested myself and pay for myself. I think the readers like it that way. 😉

  14. Aww poor little guy. I hope you find something that helps.
