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 […]

What is it about Fuzzi Bunz that makes them so popular? When I talk to owners of bricks and mortar stores and online boutiques, they all unanimously claim that Fuzzi Bunz are the top seller.

The Best Fabric for Cloth Diapers

June 4, 2008

This porous fiber absorbs moisture and wicks it away from the skin, leaving baby cooler and drier than cotton or synthetic materials. The bamboo plant is a quickly renewable resource that, unlike cotton, requires no pesticides or replanting […]

Pocket Diaper Inserts

May 7, 2008

2 Comments

A pocket diaper doesn’t work without an insert. Depending on the insert, you could have a very trim diaper or a big bubble butt.
