I love fitted diapers; absolutely, whole-heartedly LOVE them. This wasnít always the case for me. You see, I use to fear them; I mean I wouldnít be caught within five feet of a fitted diaper. Iím not sure why I felt this way. I think it was the fact that there was an extra step in the process that scared me. Plus, I thought that they were sized diapers and wouldnít be economical because of that. I guess the name fitted sounded too fancy for me and because of that I stayed away.

Skin, particularly baby skin, is most likely to become irritated when its either missing an essential component or being exposed to things that remove essential components. New baby skin is protected from amniotic fluid by vernix but once its exposed to dry air, changes occur on the molecular level that makes it vulnerable. This is the root of most baby skin conditions like baby acne, cradle cap and diaper rash. If skin is the problem, CJ's is the solution - read here to find out why.

Diaper Rite Pocket Review
I canít seem to resist a free diaper offer from Diaper Junction.† A month ago they offered one up, and I bit.† I love free diaper promotions, itís always nice to get a little more for your money!† It also gives me the opportunity to try something Iíve never used before.
I received a Diaper Rite pocket in the bright green Turtle color from the last promo. This was fun on a few levels- I donít own many pockets, and barely any green diapers! As someone who uses GroVia AI2s, Tots Bots, and BumGenius Elementals all day, I thought Iíd be brave and give a pocket diaper a chance.
We know it can be totally confusing when a cloth diaper is constantly changing it's name, features, creating new versions, options and so on.† The good thing is that when a cloth diaper is changing, it's changing for the better.† FuzziBunz is no exception.† They're constantly striving to create a more convenient, reliable and easy to use alternative to disposable diapers.

...and a few money saving idea to get you started. This is my first venture into cloth diapering and so far it has been a joy!† I started my cloth diaper stash with a few hand me down pocket diapers and have added a few Flips, cotton prefolds and homemade fleece liners.
The great thing about pocket diapers is that they are so customizable. A stuffable pocket leaves literally endless possibilities when it comes to your level and type of absorbency. Of course, pocket diapers generally come with inserts, but youíre not limited to what comes with the diaper. There are so many other wonderful options to choose from to maximize your pocket diaperís effectiveness.
We cloth diapering mommas have so many reasons why we use cloth diapers. We all know why cloth diapers are better than disposables and I know I am not the only one trying to sell my friends on the idea. They are less wasteful than disposables. They are cheaper in the long run. They are softer and more comfortable on our babies bum. And they are just plain cuter!
With the multitude of cloth diapering products and accessories on the market we know it's hard to make sense of them all.† Each brand strives to make theirs a little different and hopefully better than the others.† This results in there being soooo many different ways to use cloth diapers, so many accessories and so many choices!
Diaper Liners frequently confuse new cloth diaper users.† What are they and how do they work?
There are many types of liners, let's take a look at a few.
Cloth Diapering with One Size Cloth Diapers.
I love one size diapers! In fact, I can say that about 95 percent of my stash is made up of one size diapers.
Most of those sized diapers and covers that I do own, are currently sitting in a to sell pile because I just dont like having diapers around that I cant useeven if it is because they have already been used or will be used in the future.
Have you tried the Thirsties Duo Cloth Diaper yet?
Thirsties Duo Diaper Review
Thirsties products are by far some of my faves!† The Duo Diaper...definitely at the top of my list!
I wanted to use cloth diapers for my son because Iím cheap. There it is. Sure, I like saving the environment, I wanted things to be healthier for The Burrito, blah blah blah. Really, Iím cheap, and the prospect of spending a little upfront for all my kids instead of thousands of dollars for each kid just appealed to my thriftiness. Since most of our initial diaper stash was gifts, we had a pretty reasonable upfront investment. In terms of using the diapers, though, things kept standing in my way, though.

If youíre a regular reader here at the Cloth Diaper Blog then you may have read a post I wrote a couple of months back about how our beautiful little girl opened one of her pocket diapers with hook and loop closures during naptime and proceeded to finger paint her crib with poop.
Since then, my husband and I have been VERY CAREFUL about hook and loop diapers around our daughterís little, exploring fingers.†But that doesnít mean that weíre as careful as we mean to be.† It just takes onceÖor twice, in our case.
Diaper sprayers are a wonderful invention. They function for so many things other than just cleaning off your poopy diapers. They're great for cleaning your bathroom, for personal hygeine, and even for your mama pads. In fact, diaper sprayers are really an old invention because you'll find them in most houses and hotels throughout Europe in the form of a bidet. But I digress.
Iím a part time Spanish teacher and today was my first day back at school. It was with mixed feelings that I kissed my husband and daughter goodbye this morning because, though I absolutely love teaching Spanish to my wonderful students for four hours every morning, my heart stays at home with my daughter and I dream of one day being a full-time stay at home mom. For now, though, itís nice that my husband and I get to split the stay at home duties.
Today, I found out, it was really nice that he was the stay at home parent. Why? Oh, Iím getting to thatÖ
I know what features I like in a diaper and most diapers donít give me all of those features.
Up until using the Grovia AIO diaper, I definitely steered my diaper obsession to mostly one size pocket diapers.
To spray or not to spray? When I began my cloth-diapering journey, I purchased a package that contained the basics (dry pail, liners, deodorizer, detergent, and a diaper sprayer). Sadly, when my sprayer came, it did not attach to our toilet. This was not the end of the road, just a hiccup. So, I shook the diapers in the toilet and rinsed them in the sink. This is not a bad option, but read further for an alternative. Thus, my husband journeyed to Home Depot and bought some new attachments that lengthened the tubing on the toilet. I thought my dreams had come true. Now those dreaded poop diapers would be a snap.
Iím happy to say that bumGenius! 3.0 one-size diapers were my introduction into the cloth diapering world. In the soft light of a hospital room with my newborn sleeping soundly beside me and close friends and family crowded around, my best friend gave me three adorable one size bumGenius! 3.0 diapers and I fell in love for the second time that day. Okay, ďin loveĒ is pushing it when compared to the love surging through me for my little girl, but I was hooked on cloth right then and there.
Being a newbie to cloth diapering I wonder if much I have to say will be helpful information to other mamas, seeing as how I don't have a ton of experience. Maybe, at the very least, I can be helpful to mamas just starting out on their own adventure in cloth diapering!
Just a few weeks ago I was very lucky and won a giveaway for a cloth diaper from this blog's FYSF (FEED YOUR STASH FRIDAY). At this time I had maybe 4 cloth diapers to my name, so I was super excited!
It is great that in the modern age of cloth diapering we parents have so many options. You can cloth diaper your baby in prefolds, fitteds, all-in-ones, or pocket diapers. Closures can be Aplix or snaps. Materials can be organic or synthetic. There are endless combinations, and you can have all of them if you'd like!

Before this review, I want to thank Diaper Junction for their generosity; I can't recall the last time I received such great customer service from an online source and more than that-such AWESOME FREEBIES!!!
I have tried the FREE Flip One Size Diaper System I won and am very impressed.
A Diaper Junction customer, Jackie, shares her review of BumGenius AIO diapers and Babylegs which she won in our weekly Cloth Diaper Giveaway series, Feed Your Stash Friday!
"What's the difference between the Bummis Super Whisper Wrap and the Thirsties Diaper Cover?" When it comes to product comparison, this is the most frequently asked question we get from our customers. It is an interesting question since you would expect Bummis, a trusted brand for more than 20 years, to be a more familiar name than Thirsties. However, in 5 short years, Thirsties has made quite a name for itself when it comes to quality cloth diapering products.
One Size One Size Diapers have become the latest rage in cloth diapering. Who doesnít want the satisfaction of knowing they can buy all the diapers their baby will need in a single purchase!?! We have many customers come into our brick and mortar store to compare our best selling diaper, bumGenius! 4.0 Pocket Diaper, with the Fuzzi Bunz One Size Diaper. Both diapers are built with the same one-size diaper concept; they grow with the baby from birth to potty training.
Wool has been the outdoorsman fabric of choice since the days of the early explorers. It is also the choice material for today's cloth diaper covers; wool's unique properties still provide unsurpassed insulation, even when wet, without becoming damp and clammy.

In One Diaper features stretchy tabs, hook & loop closures and soft
thigh and back casings; designed to fit great every single time. The

suedecloth lining keeps baby dry and rash free.
The NEW bumGenius! 4.0 One Size Pocket Diapers come loaded with several
new features, including SNAPS and REPLACEABLE ELASTIC. Adjust to fit
babies from 7 to 35+ lbs.!
If I could only select one style of cloth diapers, I would chose prefold diapers.
Not only are they the most economical cloth diapering system available,
but they are comfortably soft, exceptionally durable, highly absorbent,
and even beyond that, prefold diapers are compatible with just about
every diaper cover made.
Cloth diapering truly isn't the nightmare that some think it is. In fact, over and over at our online cloth diaper store we hear about how EASY it is and how our customers wish they had started earlier.
