7 Solutions for Common Cloth Diaper Dilemmas

Thursday, July 5th, 2012

For the most part cloth diapering is easy and straight-forward, however you might occasionally encounter one or more of the following diaper dilemmas. Here are Solutions for Common Cloth Diaper Dilemmas

1. Diapers are Super Stinky– If baby’s diapers are super stinky even when they are “clean”, it’s time to strip them. I usually need to strip mine every three to four months. I love freshly stripped diapers.

2. Diapers are Leaking – There are several things that can cause cloth diapers to leak. I have found that ensuring a proper fit is usually your best protection against diaper leaks. This might mean going up a size if using sized diapers or adjusting the waist and rise if using one size diapers.

3. Diapers are Stained – The easy-peasy, all natural solution to stained cloth diapers is to sun them for a few hours!¬†The¬†sun acts as a natural bleaching agent to kill bacteria as well remove stains¬†and funky odors. It’s actually kind of magical how renewed diapers look after a few hours in the sun.

4. Hook and Loop Doesn’t Stay Together – A common complaint of hook and loop closures is that lint gets stuck in them which can¬†eventually make the closures lose their “grip”. If your hook and loop closures aren’t staying put, try gently cleaning them off with a toothbrush to remove any tangled up lint or hair.

5. Baby’s Room Smells¬†like Dirty Diapers¬†– Wherever you store your dirty diapers, be sure¬†they are stored¬†in a high quality, anti-bacterial pail liner until wash day. This will help eliminate/reduce odors. Dunking or spraying messy diapers before placing them in your diaper pail helps cut down on odor too. Another idea is to use a few drops of an¬†essential oils or Rockin’ Green Pail Freshener to¬†keep baby’s room smelling fresh and inviting.

6. Baby Takes Dirty Diaper Off– It seems like this is the one area we don’t encourage independence with our little ones because it can get really messy, really fast! Using snap closures usually reduces this problem or at least prolongs it for a while. However the most determine Houdinis will still work their magic to strip off their soiled diaper. Sometimes reverting back to using onsies on a daily basis can help prevent baby from being able to take their own diaper off. Even if it doesn’t fully prevent it, it¬†adds an extra barricade which lengthens the time it takes baby to get all layers off, giving you more time to intervene.

7. You Can’t Stop Buying Cloth Diapers¬† – It’s a known fact that cloth diapering is addicting. Just be sure to take full advantage of great sales and discounts when purchasing cloth diapers to be able to buy more diapers, er I mean to maximize your budget.
