On April 2, 2009, I asked, “What is your biggest issue with cloth diapers?”  It’s amazing how time doesn’t change the answer much. I’m a mom just like you.  I am busy, my to-do list is way too long, there is always someone needing something, I hardly have time for a shower, and I can […]

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?

October 19, 2010

101 Comments

It seems too easy to say rinse, rinse, rinse.  But, most of the time that is the solution.
