    When it comes to deciding whether you should use cloth diapers or disposable, the former has a lot going for it. Cloth diapering is cost effective and good for the environment too. But if you're considering going with cloth, you might be worried about all that laundry.

    It's true the disposable diapers are easier in this regard -- take it off baby and throw it in the trash. But washing your cloth diapers is not nearly as complicated -- or time consuming -- as it was in the olden days. Forget those visions of women slaving over vats of boiling water. Today's diapers are much simpler to launder. Here's how to wash your cloth diapers:

    What do you think your baby's poo smells like? I know the answer should be obvious, but I was surprised to find there are some parents out there who wax rhapsodic about the odor emanating from their darling babies' soiled diapers. I get it, to a point. Newborn babies who are breastfed do produce poo that smells a bit sweetish. I would go as far as saying it's not an unpleasant smell. But delicious? 

    STFU Parents has found the parents who love the way their babies' poo smells -- and aren't afraid to tell you so. Their Facebook posts are about as weird as it gets.

    We all know the "detached dad" myth. That guy who reclines in his easy chair, reading the paper, while mom chases the kids and cooks dinner simultaneously. That guy who has never changed a diaper in his life because that's not his job. That guy with selective deafness who never seems to hear his baby crying at night or the kids arguing at the dinner table. Dad the "apprentice parent." Well guess what? A new survey is busting that detached dad myth wide open. Dads are into this hands-on parenting thing, in a big way.

And, well, going diaperless is not a real alternative for most families. So we need make sure every penny spent on the things count. Here are some ways you can save money on diapers.

    Being a new mom pretty much means we get almost no time to ourselves, get used as a puke rag, nurse until our boobs are sore, and still have to have big smiles on our faces. It's a fun time, but it's also a hard time, an overwhelming time, and sometimes even a difficult time.

    If you're like every other mom I know, then you're probably obsessed with the contents of your baby's diaper -- am I right? You know, you pay close attention to how many times a day he goes, what color it is, and all that good stuff?

    If so, then you're going to go nuts over a new product being developed called smart diapers -- essentially digital diapers that "read" your baby's pee and poop (sorry, but there's really no polite way of putting it).
