2011 CNN Hero Robin LIm
   I am sitting with 2011 CNN Nominee Hero Robin Lim, in her bungalow in Ubud Bali.

If you think that this is a good idea, you may want to reconsider. This substance, made up of the skin oil and dead cells that the baby has shed in the womb, helps protect him or her from dehydration. …

My daughter had a rash with these all the time, but she did with all disposables anyway. These are great though if there is absolutely no way you can cloth diaper! We use cloth full time now, but I've got to admit I'm not sure how I would do that with a newborn.

Everything can be a hazard if you don't use it as intended. We love babywearing! It is so convenient and our daughter has loved it since birth! Sometimes there are no other alternatives, like for hiking trails and other non stroller friendly places. …
