How To Know Whether or Not You Are Ready To Have A Baby

I hope you enjoy this as much as we did!  Brought to you by UC Berkeley Parents Network.

Mess Test
Smear peanut butter on the sofa and curtains.  Now rub your hands in the wet flower bed and rub on the walls.

Place a fish stick behind the couch and leave it there all summer.

Obtain a 55-gallon box of Legos.  Have a friend spread them all over the house.  Put on a blindfold.  Try to walk to the bathroom or kitchen.  Do not scream (this could wake a child at night).

Grocery Store Test
Borrow one or two small animals (goats are best) and take them with you as you shop at the grocery store.  Always keep them in sight and pay for anything they eat or damage.

Dressing Test
Obtain one large, unhappy, live octopus.  Stuff into a small net bag making sure that all arms stay inside.

Feeding Test
Obtain a large plastic milk jug.  Fill halfway with water.  Suspend from the ceiling with a stout cord.  Start the jug swinging.  Try to insert spoonfuls of soggy cereal (such as Fruit Loops or Cheerios) into the mouth of the jug while pretending to be an airplane.  Now dump the contents of the jug on the floor.  

Night Test
Prepare by obtaining a small cloth bag and fill it with 8 to 12 pounds of sand.  Soak it thoroughly in water.  At 8:00 PM begin to waltz and hum with the bag until 9:00 PM.  Lay down your bag and set your alarm for 10: 00 PM.  Get up, pick up your bag, and sing every song you have ever heard.  Make up about a dozen more and sing these too until 4:00 AM.  Set alarm for 5:00 AM.  Get up and make breakfast.  Keep this up for 5 years.  Look cheerful.

Physical Test
Obtain a large bean-bag chair and attach it to the front of your clothes.  Leave it there for 9 months.  Now remove 10% of the beans.

Purchase a newspaper. Go home and read it quietly for the last time.

Final Assignment
Find a couple who already have a small child.  Lecture them on how they can improve their child's discipline, patience, tolerance, toilet training, and table manners.  Suggest many ways they can improve.  Emphasize to them that they should never allow their children to run wild.

Enjoy this experience.  It will be the last time you will have all the answers.

Ready to go with cloth diapers?


BumGenius cloth diapers are designed to make cloth diapering easy for every-day people.  Cloth diapering should be as inexpensive and as easy as using disposables.  Using BumGenius, it it!

Cloth Diapering has never been so easy!
NEW!  BumGenius Freetime All-In-One One-Size Cloth Diapers feature our patent pending butterfly closure system to provide a comfortable, trim fit. This simple design makes cloth diapering as easy as using disposables. Our "no-stuff" system with semi-attached inserts is an ideal solution for families with a child in day-care or family members resistant to cloth diapers! Using the snaps on the front of the diaper, adjust the size if needed, put the diaper on your baby, wash, dry and re-use. No extra steps. No stuffing. No cover required. 

Less Clutter 
BumGenius one-size cloth diapers fit most babies from 7 to 35+ pounds.  No more sorting by size or having to carry multiple diapers when going out.  Three snap-downs on the front of the diaper allow you to easily adjust the size of the diaper as your baby grows. 


Only The Best For Your Baby
The soft, waterproof outer fabric keeps the diaper trim on your newborn and toddler. Soft, sueded inner fabric gently wicks moisture away from your baby's skin. Super stretchy, gentle leg and back elastic with rolled out casings keeps the yuk in and help to keep red marks away.


New parents may be shocked to discover how much brainpower they devote to thinking about their baby’s poop, especially how to contain and dispose of it. Thinking about using cloth diapers? Here are some things to consider:

1. You'll save money--When you buy disposable diapers, you are throwing away money each diaper change.  According to a recent report about Disposable Diapers from Consumer Report "You can expect to spend $1,500 - $2,000 or more on disposables by the time the baby is out of them."

2. Better for environment--Many parents initially look at cloth diapering for environmental reasons and with good cause!  Disposable diapers are the third most common consumer product in landfills today.  One baby in disposable diapers will contribute at least 1 ton of waste to your local landfill.  

3. Better for Baby--Cloth diaper users tend to have less issue with diaper rash, irritated bottoms, and other common complaints from disposable diaper parents.  

4. It's More Convenient--Out of diapers again?  When you use cloth diapers, your diapers are always available.  Tired of blowouts?  Who wants to change the diaper AND the outfit?  Thankfully, cloth diapers are designed to prevent leaks.  A better design usually cuts down on outfit changes.  

5. Less Time In Diapers--It's a little-known fact that cloth diaper children potty train earlier and with less effort on their parents part.  This has mostly to do with the fact that when a cloth diaper is wet, they can feel the sensation.  Chemical made disposable diapers can feel so dry, your baby never gets a chance to understand what their body is doing.  

6. Adorable--Okay, it's also important to look at cloth diapering as a fashion statement.  Cloth diapers are cute!  They come in fashion colors and print.  Have fun with it!

It is important to note that it is EASY!  Modern inventions like flushable liners have taken the grossness factor out of this issue.  The flushable diaper liner is laid inside the diaper to allow the poop to be easily removed from the diaper.  Just peel the biodegradable liner out of the diaper and flush the mess away.  Perfect for travel, daycare and those moments when practical life demands something disposable.
