A Revival of Cloth Diaper Services?

Posted by CDB Guest on 7/31/2010 to Cloth Diaper News

There is a resurgence of cloth diaper services popping up all over the United States; I like to think of it as the cloth diaper revival.

While many moms and pops have cloth diapered for years, and couldn't fathom using disposable products on their precious babies' bums, there are always the "newbies" - bravely going where, they feel, no (wo)man has gone before.

You want to do cloth diapers? Are you crazy?

"You want to give birth naturally…yeah right, they all say that. You are going to breastfeed…I give it a month. You want to do cloth diapersare you crazy!"

While I was still pregnant it seemed everywhere I turned people were skeptical. Each time I discussed a desire to have my child naturally, to breastfeed or cloth diaper people continued to doubt my resolve. The fact that I was having my first child also earned me the extremely popular, "you just wait and see" remark.

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!

Vacation Diaries: Poop on the Road

Posted by Becca on 7/22/2010 to Cloth Diaper How-To

Since we bought a diaper sprayer, poopy diapers have been a non-issue in our house. It is a convenience necessity we just don't think about, and definitely can't live without, much like the toilet to which it is attached.

When we go on vacation, using cloth diapers is the only choice for us. Vacations can be expensive enough as it is without the added cost of a couple of boxes of disposable diapers.

Vacation Diaries: Swim Diapers

Posted by Becca on 7/14/2010 to Cloth Diaper How-To

When going on vacation with cloth diapers, getting a good swim diaper is a must!

Basically, a swim diaper is special diaper designed to keep your baby’s poop from invading the swimming pool.

A good swim diaper will allow liquids to pass through and contain the poop safe and sound. It has no absorbent layers because they would add extra weight making buoyancy difficult and causing a safety hazard to your child.

Vacation Diaries: Pee in an Elevator

Posted by Becca on 7/8/2010 to Getting Started

When we went to the beach this summer for our vacation, I was so excited to use my daughter's cloth swim diapers for the first time.

Now, I sort of realized that swim diapers are not waterproof. I'd read somewhere that they are made this way so that a baby won't be held down by absorbent layers while swimming. But honestly, it just didn't occur to me that putting my baby in her swim diaper before getting to the pool just wasn't the best idea.

Babysitters and Cloth Diapers

There was that time I came home from errands to find that my dear friend had put one of my daughter's Haute pocket diapers on backwards. Then, there was that other time when my mom sweetly lathered my little darling's rashy bottom with a thick layer of creamy Desitin before placing her in a bumGenius!. And I can't forget the time that my sister put her Pocket Diaper on so loosely that I was amazed there weren't puddles of pee on the couch.
