A few months ago, Weehuggers entered into a new phase of their business. Not only were they releasing a brand new design but they were also joining up with one of the big names in cloth diapers: Blueberry Diapers.

Diaper sprayers, cloth wipes and Tide

July 21, 2010

195 Comments

Over the past couple of months cloth diapering has undergone some changes in our home.  When I posted about having to buy Huggies when camping I shocked a reader in the comments by saying I didn’t use cloth wipes.  This got me thinking…why don’t I? When I wrote about not using a diaper sprayer and […]

July 11, 2010

35 Comments

What type of water I have was something that I never bothered to think about until I started cloth diapering.  It turns out I have hard water and it really makes a difference in how I clean my diapers.  I never noticed it before because I’ve always used Tide and Gain to clean my clothes. […]

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 […]

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 :) […]

**contest closed** For a lot of you Hard Rock is going to be the answer to many, many prayers. Only those who have hard water know the headache that comes with doing laundry.

Do Your Cloth Diapers Have Stones in Them?

January 31, 2010

27 Comments

I remember a couple of months ago a cloth diaper mama on Twitter asked what everyone did for “cloth diaper stones”? I had no clue what she was talking about.  Not that that is entirely surprising, I can’t possibly know everything there is to know about cloth diapers ;) Of course, as it always works […]

I ruined my cloth diapers!

January 14, 2010

42 Comments

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 […]
