GreenPath Baby Blog
If you have followed our store for ANY length of time whatsoever you know that there are a few brands that we are OBSESSED with. One of them is Lalabye Baby. True Fact here, GreenPath Baby was Lalabye Baby's first-ever retailer and we have continued to love them ever since. Every once in a while we release custom embroidery diapers to celebrate a season, and this month with back to school we have been feeling Fall-sy. So we wanted to do not one but TWO Lalabye embroidery diapers. We first released the Lalabye Baby Exclusive Fall Kittens. Featuring not one, but TWO baby kittens this was an easy choice for our customs.
Our second exclusive was the Antler and Feathers. I really LOVE this design. It's very fall and at the same time super contemporary and hip. The two also compliment each other and would look amazing under Halloween costumes. Just imagine these gorgeous designs peeking out from underneath their little outfits! The Antler and Feathers Lalabye Exclusive is a plum/purple snap with an orange diaper (Jack Be Nimble).
The pictures above are photoshop mock-ups, not pictures of the real diapers. Since we decided to go ahead with these designs we opened them up for Lalabye Fans and for GreenPath Baby Exclusive Chat members first. Once we have pictures, we will post on this blog for you guys to see how beautiful they are! Here is a picture of the embroidered fall diaper we did last year!
This one, named Foxy Fall was a HUGE hit, and we just loved getting pictures like this! Pics that show baby using these gorgeousness for pictures and in their real day-to-day lives! How amazing! We can't wait to see the beautiful pictures of these TWO new Fall designs!!

How to Disinfect Yeasty Cloth Diapers (for regular washing machines):
- Wash cloth diapers if they are soiled. Make sure you start this process with clean diapers.
- Wash the diapers in hot water with detergent and 30 drops of grapefruit seed extract (GSE) along with 10 drops of tea tree oil.
- While the water is filling up on your washing machine, mix in a pot of boiling water into the laundry.
- Do an extra cold rinse (in addition to the rinse at the end of a wash cycle).
- Dry in the dryer on low heat, better yet, dry in direct sunlight which also helps to eliminate yeast.
- 4oz spray bottle.
- 4oz of water
- 10 drops of grapefruit seed extract (GSE).
- Spray on affected area with every diaper change.
If you haven't slept in a few nights because of teething pain you NEED to read this! Teething is one of the most challenging and painful times is a baby's young life and there is nothing worst for a mama than to see her baby in pain. Teething can start at a very, very young age. My little boy had his two front teeth at four months! Excessive drooling, irritability, gumming objects including hands and fingers are all signs that your baby might be in the thick of it when it comes to teething. We have compiled a list of everything you'll need to combat teething, soothe baby and have a good night's rest!
#1 Hosie Naturals Teething Cheek Balm
The Hosie Naturals Teething cheek balm is a miracle worker! It calms fussy babies and helps them settle down at night or for a nap! Made with Arnica and Clove oil, this teething balm does not need to be ingested (which is my favorite part!). Rub it on baby's cheeks just on top of where the teeth are coming out and voila!
#2 Baltic Amber Necklace
Baltic Amber has been used for ages to soothe minor pains, aches, and discomfort. Best of all, it works wonders on teething babies! Though we do not recommend wearing an Amber necklace around the neck to sleep, you can safely wrap one around baby's ankle and place a sock or footed pj's over the necklace so baby still gets the benefits of the amber but is not wearing something around their neck during sleep time.
#3 Teething Necklaces
I can't say enough about teething necklaces. Babies love them...alot. We love Little Teethers and Chewbeads which are made with FDA food grade silicone so it's gentle on baby's gum and emerging teeth so no worries about their poor little inflamed gums there!
Combine these three ingredients and bam! You'll be sleeping in no time...(You can thank me later!).
At GreenPath Baby we ALWAYS look forward to a good release! Cottonbabies, the makers of BumGenius, and Flips never seem to disappoint. Some of my all-time favorite prints have been released by them, including Jules and Audrey. For today's release, Cottonbabies chose to go with Sierpinski. Waclaw Sierpiński was a Polish mathematician known for his work on set theory, number theory and the theory of functions and topology. He delivered the first-ever lecture course on theory, and has published more than 700 papers and 50 books on this subject. Sierpinski has received numerous awards and recognitions for his contributions to mathematics. He has three well-known fractals in his honor, including the Sierpinski triangle. We are so happy to bring you this GORGEOUS mathematically inspired diaper! We love this addition to the genius series and absolutely love the use of some of the most loved BG colors such as Hummingbird, Grasshopper and Sassy. Can't wait to see this beauty OTB!!!
