The Cloth Diaper that may be my NEW #1

January 27, 2010


Can I have a two-way tie? I feel like it would be a sin to demote my beloved Bum Genius Organic AIO. I just said something dealing with cloth diapers would be a sin…this coming from someone who just accepted that cloth diapers are just cloth diapers.  (Pink diaper incident) Back to my new love. […]

Cloth Diapers Clean as a Whistle

January 23, 2010


While I was on vacation this past week I saw a video posted on Facebook that I couldn’t wait to get home and share with you! I don’t endorse any one detergent as “the” cloth diaper detergent.  However, Kim of Rockin Green Soap is doing a fantastic job of proving the efficacy of her formula. […]

Are Dancing Bears Fleece Soakers Worth It?

January 17, 2010


Is this cover really as good as it looks and sounds? Really, I want to know.  I was window shopping on The Diaper Wagon tonight and came across the Dancing Bears Nighttime Fleece Soaker. It looks so soft! And it looks nice and thick. Plus, $20 for a soaker that I’d use almost nightly is […]

I ruined my cloth diapers!

January 14, 2010


Well, perhaps “ruined” is a slight exaggeration.  After all, they are still usable.  So what’s wrong with them? THEY’RE ALL PINK!! And I have a boy. But, they still hold pee and poop so all is not lost. However, that was no consolation to me the first 48 hrs after my disaster.  The Flip and […]

NEW Leslie’s Boutique Wet/Dry Bag Giveaway

January 10, 2010


*CONTEST CLOSED—WINNER CHOSEN** How many times have you wished you had a pocket on the outside of your wet bag? For me it’s every time I go somewhere.  I hate having to take 2 bags: one for a clean cloth diaper and a ziploc with wipes and my Leslie’s Boutique wet bag. Leslie, being the […]

Cloth Diapers on Facebook

January 4, 2010


A year ago it was hard to get to know the owners of my favorite cloth diaper stores. They were busy, I was busy. But, as social networking grew and grew it became easy to connect with anyone in the cloth diaper business. Designers, marketers, retailers, bloggers and of course cloth diaper parents now can […]

Bottombumpers Cloth Diapers

December 31, 2009


I am a huge fan of easy.  And I mean easy enough for my husband and 7yo daughter.  For this house that usually means an aplix all-in-one. Bottombumpers cloth diapers are just the type of easy everyone needs in their stash.  Before Thanksgiving, Stacy sent me a red Aplix (at my request because I don’t […]

My Experience with Flip Disposable Inserts

December 20, 2009


I don’t recommend disposable diapers or inserts be used on a regular or even occassional basis. If they are used it should be for those rare times when using cloth diapers would be unfeasible. Having said that, in November on our final camping trip of the year I decided to try out the disposable inserts […]

Sbish Knit Wool Is Amazing!

December 11, 2009


I adore writing reviews for products that have become my favorites. Erin, the brain behind Sustainablebabyish (sloomb) was very thoughtful to send me some of her new knits.  The new Sbish knit wool products have soared to the top of my favorites list for many reasons. But, my opinion can’t hold that much weight for […]

Should You Buy Kissaluvs Antibacterial Pail Liner?

December 5, 2009


YES! What do we all want in a pail liner? I mean besides one that will magically wash and dry the cloth diapers that go in it ;) We want it to be completely leak-proof, durable, roomy and for it to not fall into the pail when a diaper is dropped in. Check. Check. Check. […]

Makes for an enjoyable 7 minutes of learning.  There are many great products Leigh spotlights and I have provided Amazon links […]

Does Rockin Green Cloth Diaper Detergent Work?

November 22, 2009


This past summer I introduced you to Rockin Green Cloth Diaper Detergent.  Kim kindly sent me some samples and I eagerly used them all up.  I was pleased: clothes smelled clean, cloth diapers smelled clean, no rashes occurred… two thumbs up. However, after the samples were gone I went back to using my Kirkland’s Environmentally […]

New to Cloth Diapers Part 2

November 18, 2009


In Part 1, I explained to you the different cloth diaper systems.  In Part 2, I will show you the different cloth diaper covers available. We’ve all heard of “plastic pants”. Plastic pants are made of Polyvinyl Chloride or vinyl.  Although this is a cheap, easily accessible choice it is not the healthiest. PVC is […]
