I stare at it and ponder over which size I should buy…again I’m not a prefold user! I love the choices and colors and quilty fluffiness. But this Labor Day […]

Do Your Pocket Cloth Diapers Have the Stinkies?

August 8, 2008

28 Comments

It is amazing how fast pocket cloth diapers can start stinking. I used fitteds for months and never had this problem. Coincidentally, when I began cloth diapering my then 15 month old son in 2005, the pocket diapers were the only diapers that reeked of ammonia. Back then I just figured that’s what toddler pee […]

Thought About Using Cloth Wipes?

July 18, 2008

15 Comments

I have to admit that switching to cloth wipes took quite a while for me. I began cloth diapering in 2005 and only this year have stopped buying disposable wipes. What stopped me was the major convenience of disposable wipes. I had no simple system in mind on how to use cloth wipes. It wasn’t […]
