Do you have water woes?

Posted by Cloth Diaper Blog Guest on 7/31/2011 to Washing Cloth Diapers
About six months into cloth diapering my son, out of nowhere, his Fuzzibunz and BumGenius started leaking. Everywhere. Detergent buildup? You might think so, but we were using Crunchy Clean at the time, a detergent with no soaps that doesn't tend to leave residue. Just in case, I did a Dawn strip. No improvement. What was going on?

Cloth Swim Diapers and Fruit at the Beach!

Posted by CDB Guest on 7/27/2011 to Cloth Diaper How-To

This summer was The Burrito’s first trip to the Outer Banks, NC, where my family has vacationed for 19 years, almost two-thirds of my life. He was not impressed with sun, sand, ocean waves, or the pool behind the house. However, my sister-in-law, genius that she is, suggested an inflatable baby pool to take to the beach with us. Burrito gets to splash in water warmed in the sun, and I get to sit and read a book on the beach for thirty five minutes. It was great – he would be happy at the beach or pool, we didn’t have to hold him the whole time, and he stayed cool in the hot sun.

Unsure about Cloth Diapers?

Posted by CDB Guest on 7/20/2011 to Cloth vs. Disposables

There are so many reasons why families choose cloth diapers over throw-away diapers including, environmental, health and price reasons. But when you start your research to determine what is best for your family, you might be overwhelmed with all of the opinions and  research that exists out there on this topic.

For example, Tricia Henton is a director of environmental protection in London, England. She says, “There is no substantial difference between the environmental impacts of the three systems studied.”  On the other hand, some people say that Tricia’s diaper study is wrong. Even government agencies can’t agree on cloth diapers versus throw-away ones! Either way, parents need to begin looking for the answers to the diaper debate somewhere. The question is, with all of this information out there, where do you start?  Here are some ideas that may help:

The thing is, though, you dont need most of those thingsthough many of them certainly make life as a cloth diapering parent easier. When I started shopping for cloth, looking at the list of these important things was dizzying to my head and to my budget:

A Journey that Started with a Cloth Diaper

Posted by CDB Guest on 7/2/2011 to Green Living

Almost three years ago, when I was just a normal, Aquafina-chugging twenty-something, I attended my best friend's baby shower, where I met her cousin's new wife and their little baby boy. It was a hot day in July and the tiny guy was wearing only a t-shirt and something very cute and colorful on his bum. "Is that a cloth diaper?" I asked.  "Why yes it is."  "It's adorable!" For the next ten minutes or so she told me all about the wonders of cloth. From that moment, it wasn't even a question for me: I knew I was going to cloth diaper my kids.  It just made sense.  It was economical.  It kept lots of smelly plastic diapers out of the home and out of the landfill (as a two-time nanny and frequent babysitter I had plenty of experience with those).  And I'll reiterate, they were ADORABLE!
