This week's FYSF Giveaway is celebrating the return of our inventory of the Diaper Rite Snapless Pre-fitted Cloth Diapers! Since we've added them to our store they've become a favorite and we sold out quickly in several sizes.
Now that they're back in stock we thought we'd give you a chance to WIN (2) Diaper Rite Pre-fitted Cloth Diapers and a Wetbag!
Winner of our Feed Your Stash Friday Giveaway has been announced!
Check to see if you're this week's lucky winner!
The Fourth of July is a week away and most of us will be grillin' it up and celebrating America's 237th birthday. This can mean one of two things: you are either very well behaved in your eating before Thursday comes or you bring along a few healthy treats of your own.
My typical day at Diaper Junction goes a little like this. Log in to my computer. Sip on some iced coffee while I check email. Then I move on to help the shipping and receiving team process some orders. Somewhere between talking about our kids and postmarking orders the phone will ring, "Thank you for calling Diaper Junction. This is Valerie." "HELP! MY DIAPERS ARE REPELLING!" Okay, so maybe it isn't quite that dramatic, but I certainly understand where the frustrated voice on the other end of the phone is coming from. There is a TON of information on the internet about leaking diapers, repelling diapers, stripping diapers--it's enough to make your head spin! Hopefully I can dispell a couple myths and help you understand what may be happening with your diapers should you ever be in this situation.
Recently, my husband and I watched the movie Birth Story: Ina May Gaskin & The Farm Midwives due to a recommendation by my own midwife. I watched it while reading the book Ina May's Guide to Childbirth so it was really a double whammy of natural birth, midwife style for me. Honestly, I wish I'd seen the movie first because a movie is never quite as detailed, or in this case as informative as the book, but the movie was still refreshing and wonderful.

I have the TV tastes of a teenager. I discovered the ABC Family series Pretty Little Liars (PLL) when it first aired, however, we have never had satellite, dish, or cable TV so I watched it on Hulu. Then Netflix started carrying the series and I was like a moth to a flame with this show. I hate doing laundry; ah but folding laundry is an excellent reason to tune out and watch PLL. (Read more...)
For this tutorial you will need the following: PUL (Polyurethane Laminated Fabric), a zipper, sewing machine, coordinating thread, and a zipper foot for your sewing machine. The size that you make this is up to you. You can make it large or small and still follow this tutorial. Mine is a small/medium that is the perfect size for your diaper bag. It can fit 3-5 dirty diapers or one change of clothes for a toddler or preschooler.
I don't know about you, but I'm sort of a pack rat. I keep things "just-in-case" and also for sentimental reasons. Over the years (and I do mean years) I'll slowly and repeatedly weed through old boxes and thin out stuff I no longer need or stuff I finally decide I can part with, but I never really get rid of all of it.
It happened again, a concept that seemed so hard to implement and enforce with my kids turned out to be simple, easy and effortless with the help of a gimmick.
Sometimes the answer is right in front of you and you don't realize until you try! They don't shape chicken nuggets like dinosaurs for nothing.
It's Father's Day and we just wanted to take a moment to really share with you just how much we appreciate our own dads and hope you're taking today to enjoy the dear men in your lives.
Family is of utmost importance to us here at Diaper Junction and...(Read more)

This month's installment of Carry of the Month from Babywearing International of Hampton Roads teaches us about the Double Hammock Back Carry. This is a woven wrap carry and allows for great support for a heavier child.
Warm weather is here and the time is right for picnics, playdates, and trips to the beach. Warmer temperatures are often accompanied by an increase in humidity, which can bring about an increase in mold. While mold in diapers is not terribly common, the majority of the calls and emails we receive about moldy diapers come in the summer months.
It all started with Disney princesses. Sometime over a year ago, Bunny fell in love with those princesses. My husband and I certainly had nothing to do with it, but my sisters started giving her tons of princessy things and Bunny just loved them. Dave and I were fine with that. It's what she liked, so we indulged her. We bought her princess dolls and watched the princess movies with her and picked up princess T shirts and pajamas at yard sales. Soon, she'd start picking her church dresses based on the princess she wanted to be. If her dress was purple, she was Rapunzel. If she wore blue, she was Cinderella and needed her hair in a bun. If she wore yellow, she was Belle, and wore her hair half up, half down. And so it went.
Today, more and more people are becoming concerned with the environment, and with their finances as well because of the state of the economy. One great way for parents of babies to save money and do something great for the environment is to switch to the cloth diaper. There are many advantages to making a switch like this.
Yep! You heard right, we've got some great new cloth diapers available online at DiaperJunction.com and in store at Diaper Junction in Virginia Beach!
So what are so new that they warrant their very own blog post?

I love fitted diapers; absolutely, whole-heartedly LOVE them. This wasn’t always the case for me. You see, I use to fear them; I mean I wouldn’t be caught within five feet of a fitted diaper. I’m 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 wouldn’t be economical because of that. I guess the name fitted sounded too fancy for me and because of that I stayed away.
The Family Focus series allows us to spotlight a cloth-diapering family that makes our online community so strong. This month's Family Focus is on the Smalligan-Cooper family. Suzanne & David celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary in April and are proud parents to Henry, age 19 months.
Even though I wanted to cloth diaper before my daughter was born, I guess I'd resigned myself to using disposables because I registered for a diaper genie. I have to say that those things are not only impossible to use with cloth diapers, they are completely impractical for disposables too (well, that's my opinion, anyway). As my stash grew, I realized that I really had no solution for dirty diaper storage for my cloth diapers. At first, I just put them in a random bucket on the floor, but once our stash grew past 6 diapers, I realized I needed to find some real storage.
Sheesh! Good thing no one ever said parenting was easy, because it sure isn't. One thing I thought would be fairly simple and easy to teach my kids was how to share and what it meant to share with others.
The aspect I didn't bank on was the fact that my little ones would figure how to use sharing to their advantage, in order to not have to share....confusing I know, but they pretty nicely came up with their own sort of reverse sharing psychology.
