California Dreamin'

My daughter's preschool teacher had one of those looks on her face.

Uh oh. Here it comes, I thought. What did my daughter do at school today?

A Diaper Pail Tale

Posted by Becca on 1/27/2011 to Frugal Cloth Diapering

When I started cloth diapering, I didn’t have enough money to buy all my diapers at once.  I had to save the money and add to my stash quite gradually.  Because my focus at the time was simply getting enough diapers to last my daughter between washes, I didn’t even think about cloth diapering accessories for a long time.  As you can guess, my dirty diaper storage was interesting, at best.

HE, What does that mean for me?

Posted by Becca on 1/26/2011 to Washing Cloth Diapers
My husband, one year old daughter, my pregnant belly and I recently moved across the country. In doing so, I left my wonderful (and simple) washing machine behind. It really was not a huge problem - I figured we would just buy another similar washing machine when we moved to our new place.

Washing cloth diapers isn't so bad....

Posted by CDB Guest on 1/25/2011 to Washing Cloth Diapers

I had the popular belief that cloth diapering was gross and disgusting. I even remember helping my mom decades ago swishing out diapers in the toilet...yuck. I even said then that I would never cloth diaper, but I find myself a year into my cloth diapering journey and I love it!

My friend had her baby in these adorable diapers that were all colorful and of course I needed to inquire. They were one size pocket diapers in a variety of cute colors. I had to try it. Upon receiving my new cloth diapers I have not gone back. I enjoyed saving money and having my sweet babe look so cute.

A Case for Snaps: The Pee-quel

Posted by Becca on 1/23/2011 to Cloth Diaper Reviews

If you’re 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 daughter’s little, exploring fingers. But that doesn’t mean that we’re as careful as we mean to be.  It just takes once…or twice, in our case.

24 Hours of Cloth

Posted by CDB Guest on 1/19/2011 to Getting Started

When I started looking in to cloth diapering, I assumed you were supposed to pick one brand/style and use it for every diaper change, all day, all night. I thought it would be so complicated and confusing to have different brands and styles, different covers, inserts, materials, etc. I quickly learned that each style of diaper has its pros and cons, and that an entire stash made out of one style may not function as well as a diverse one.

Here's to mom!

Posted by Cloth Diaper Blog Guest on 1/18/2011 to Cloth vs. Disposables
Let's all raise our diaper pins in salute to all the mothers, grandmothers and great-grandmothers out there who used cloth diapers when choices were few and labor was intensive. You have to admit, it's a lot easier today for moms to be eco-minded and keep our landfills from piling up even faster with disposable diapers.

Cloth Diaper Laundry Day

Posted by CDB Guest on 1/11/2011 to Washing Cloth Diapers

Most people would agree doing the laundry is just another obnoxious, never ending chore that must get done. I’ve never been one to enjoy it. I will let the clothes pile up and spill out of the hamper before I reluctantly decide its time to run the washing machine. Knowing how I am with my clothes, I was a bit concerned about the process of washing cloth diapers. It sounds complicated. It might be gross. What detergent do I use?!

Reusable Swim Diapers – More Economical Than Disposable Swim Diapers

Posted by Bryana on 1/11/2011 to Cloth Diaper How-To

Summer is a great time for families to spend in the water, especially when the weather is hot. But, for many parents, even the ones that use cloth diapers, this can be a very expensive and very wasteful. But not anymore. Now there are reusable swim diapers, which are much more economical than disposable swim diapers.

Disposable swim diapers are not cheap, but they are necessary if you have your baby in the water often during the hot days. You will go through them quite quickly, and that will be throwing away quite a bit of swim diapers. Even for cloth diaper users, there was not an answer to this problem that could be any more economical that disposable swim diapers.

Cloth diapers eco-friendly in more ways than one

Posted by CDB Guest on 1/10/2011 to Potty Training

I love cloth diapering for so may reasons, but I think this one may top them all: getting out of diapers sooner. Among the parental joys of toddlerhood ”precious hugs and kisses, repeated renditions of the ABC song, adorable words and phrases to record in memory books” successful use of the potty ranks right up there at the top.
