we are a one language per parent family. my husband is native german and only speaks german to our boys...i only speak english (i don't want to teach incorrect grammar by speaking my more rudimentary german.) the boys are only 4 and 2, so while english seems to be their default language, they understand even more complicated german sentences. we are confident that as they get older, they will be speaking more of german.

We tried bumgenius at toddlerhood and never went back to disposables.
