Cloth Diapering 101 Video Series: 3 Basic Types of Cloth Diapers

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

Are you new to cloth diapering and overwhelmed with all the choices? I know I was when I first explored the world of cloth diapering. I felt as though I was trying to learn a foreign language when I would navigate cloth diapering websites and message boards. All in ones? Prefolds? Pockets? What did all of this mean and how would I know what ones to buy?

If you are in that place or know someone who is, be sure to follow our Cloth Diapering 101 Video Series during the next several weeks where we’ll break cloth diapering down to the basics so you can confidently purchase a cloth diapering system for your baby!

Episode 1: 3 Basic Types of Cloth Diapers


Overnight Cloth Diaper Solutions

Thursday, February 14th, 2013

Love your cloth diapers during the day, but having trouble with them leaking overnight? This is a common dilemma for cloth diapering families; waking up in a pool of pee is definitely NOT fun…especially for co-sleeping families!  But be assured there are some awesome overnight cloth diapering solutions.

Keep in mind that a newborn breastfed baby will often poop at night for the first several weeks or even months, necessitating diaper changes through the night. However once you get through that phase and your baby is no longer pooping at night, you don’t necessarily need to change him/her during the night. Of course this assumes you have found an effective overnight cloth diapering system. Sometimes it takes a little trial and error to figure out what will work as an overnight cloth diaper for your wee one. Here are two easy solutions we have found effective:

Doublers – Doublers are basically inserts or liners that you add to your cloth diapering system for extra absorbency. Doublers are specially designed to be thin yet super- duper absorbent. However if you already have a wide variety of inserts in your stash, you could simply use a regular insert or two to double up for extra night-time protection. The result may be a super bulky diaper but with dry jammies in the morning (albeit you might need to go up a size in jammies to accommodate all that bulk).

Wool Covers You all know how much I love wool and cannot say enough good things about it. I honestly think wool covers make THE BEST overnight diapers. When my second son was an itty bitty baby, I would often put a pair of longies (basically wool pants) on him over his pocket diaper for overnights. Obviously most of the time you would not use any kind of cover over a pocket diaper but this was our bulletproof night time solution for a while…mostly because I was eager to skip night time diaper changes as early as possible. Now I know wool is pricey BUT the awesome thing about wool is you can use it over and over again before needing to wash it; thus you can easily get by with just a few wool covers in your stash (particularly if you are using them primarily as your overnight diaper).

What is your bulletproof overnight cloth diaper? Would love to hear what works for other mamas!


Sunday Funday Giveaway: FLIP Organic Single Pack & Disposable Inserts

Sunday, January 1st, 2012

When I travel I usually end up using disposables diapers (sheepishly blushing  and ducking over here) although I have considered investing in a hybrid cloth diapering system to use specifically for when we travel. Flip diapers are the ones that I have my eye on it. They are a flexible diapering system offering three different types of inserts to pair with their one-size diaper cover. The three options are organic, stay-dry, or disposable inserts. Flip Organic Inserts are made from 100% Oeko-Tex certified organic cotton. Flip Stay-Dry inserts are made of 3 absorbent layers of microfiber and suede. Flip Disposable Inserts are made from ingredients that are dye free, fragrance free and Oeko-Tex certified. The disposable inserts are a convenient option for traveling, camping or for caregivers who are not completely on board with cloth diapering. The other very cool thing about the Flip inserts is that they are compatible with bumGenius pocket diapers as well as Econobum diaper covers!

I am eager to try out Flip diapers on our next vacation. In honor of my quest to green our travels with a hybrid diapering system, this week’s giveaway is for an Flip Organic Single Pack which includes a one-size cover and an one-size organic insert AND a pack of Flip disposable inserts. Enter today to win!
