Today’s questions come from Z’s Mama. If the Flip Stay Dry insert is made of “3 absorbent layers of microfiber and a smooth stay-dry suede that wicks away moisture from your baby’s bum”…does that mean that it will trap the urea?

Are Disposable Diapers Really That Bad?

February 23, 2011

117 Comments

The other day a friend of mine made a comment that made my stomach turn. I LUUUUUUUV Pampers. I don’t care how much dioxin they have in ‘em. Bold statement.  Sarcasm? Maybe.  Defense of a system she knows is bad? Most likely. Disposable diapers not labled as “unbleached” or “bleached with peroxide” contain Dioxin.  Dioxin […]

February 14, 2011

159 Comments

Before I tried the Tots Bots Easy Fit I had a hard time understanding whether it was a pocket or an all in one.  None of the websites I looked at gave me a really clear picture of what the diaper was like. This of course kept me from spending the $20+.  When I got […]

The title sounds like a riddle of some sort. Who has a cuteybaby, a blissful booty and a bright star??

Just smile, that’s what I should have done. Instead, I said, “you did what?!” My sweet husband has taken over morning diaper changes for Sterling.

Finding clothes to fit over cloth diapers can be so annoying! When I first started cloth diapering in 2005, my 15 month old son went from wearing super trim sposies to bulky prefolds and proraps.  His clothes didn’t fit the same. When #3 came along I had a very hard time finding clothes to fit […]

Honestly, I wasn’t ever going to write this post.  Hadn’t crossed my mind.  Perhaps it is because I have been so caught up in the ultra soft bamboo or the prints-that-make-you-go-awwww or the newest, brightest toy on the shelf.  Yep, that’s probably it. But, it was a comment made by one of you that got […]
