My cloth diapering story began not too long ago-kinda. It was kind of a perfect storm of events that got us going on cloth diapers. In September, I found out my husband and I were going to have another baby. It was a shock and we had been planning on waiting until he had a […]

Kelly’s Cloth Diaper Story Became a Project

March 29, 2011

I’ll tell you in one word why I started cloth diapering my (now 9 year old) daughter. Money. We were broke. We were so broke we couldn’t afford to order diaper wraps or even the good prefolds online because that required a) money and b) a debit or credit card, which we didn’t have. I […]

Are Disposable Diapers Really That Bad?

February 23, 2011

115 Comments

The other day a friend of mine made a comment that made my stomach turn. I LUUUUUUUV Pampers. I don’t care how much dioxin they have in ‘em. Bold statement.  Sarcasm? Maybe.  Defense of a system she knows is bad? Most likely. Disposable diapers not labled as “unbleached” or “bleached with peroxide” contain Dioxin.  Dioxin […]

Cloth diapers are the best choice

August 12, 2010

25 Comments

But they certainly aren’t the only way to diaper your baby.  That’s sort of a no-brainer statement but I wasn’t always so graceful about it.  I once wrote a post about only using cloth diapers that now makes me cringe.  I used poor judgment and turned away readers I’m sure.  Not that what I said […]

I recently discovered a $1000 contest where the entries are a 1-3 minute video telling the viewer “why choose cloth diapers?”  Too bad I discovered it the day after the contest ended (June 1, 2010).  The contest was held by bynature.ca. Char of Cloth Now sent me her entry via the All About Cloth Diapers […]

Are One Size Cloth Diapers Worth It?

May 10, 2010

29 Comments

Is it really possible to buy a stash of one-sized cloth diapers and not buy another one throughout the life of the child?  Is there a cloth diaper that will withstand years of use with multiple children? Certainly the answer can be yes to both of these questions but there are limitations. When many families […]

New to Cloth Diapers? Part 1

November 9, 2009

I remember how overwhelming it was when I first began cloth diapering. There were so many choices (and SO many more now!) and I had no idea where to start. The one thing I did know was disposable diapers are gross and I needed something else. I refused to compromise my child’s health any more […]

Oh boy, do I ever struggle with those moments!  They seem to always get me at Walmart.  I have a love hate relationship with Walmart. It goes something like this… I love that Walmart offers me more than groceries to fulfill my never-ending itch to shop.  I hate that Walmart offers clothes, kitchen gadgets, household […]

Why Choose Cloth Diapers: Health Reasons

March 28, 2009

When I tell people we use cloth diapers they are almost always shocked. After they make comments like “you’re so brave” or “I could never cloth diaper”, they ask me why. For my family our baby’s health was the reason we chose cloth diapering. My husband is a chiropractor and that opened the door to […]
