I’ve tried many of the raved about nighttime cloth diapering solutions. One I’d not tried was the DryBees Fleece Nighttime pocket diaper. Last night we gave it a go. Why go with fleece for a diaper cover? Fleece is breathable.  This means airflow can occur between the outside and your baby’s skin. Why does this […]

We all chose to cloth diaper because it was better for our children.  But, what do you do when the cloth diapers are hurting your baby? I am so sad to say that I am in this boat.  Sterling’s nighttime diapers leave him screaming in the morning.  Not good. I soaked every insert and fitted […]

Don’t unsubscribe!! Please, I didn’t mean to do it! I don’t know what’s happened to me.  All I can do is blame it on pregnancy. It’s funny how I titled this post with the word “forced”. As if I was not the one to blame hehehe.  Last week we went camping.  I knew we’d be […]

I recently returned to Diaperswappers to join a December 2010 due date club.  I didn’t really want to get sucked into the FSOT (for sale or trade) forums but… I saw a listing for a Covered Caboose wool soaker and I had something she was in search of (one-size fuzzi bunz).  I have been wanting […]

Washing Cloth Diapers in a Front Loader

May 17, 2010

111 Comments

I anticipated much struggle.  I’ve read the bazillions of stories of moms saying they wish they had a top loader just for their cloth diapers. I went back and forth over whether to buy a TL or FL when my old-trusty died. In the end, a FL made more sense (and they looked prettier :) […]

Are One Size Cloth Diapers Worth It?

May 10, 2010
