Cloth Diapers and Water Usage

Making the decision to cloth diaper is a huge accomplishment.  What seems like an obvious choice for every family often goes undiscovered by the majority of the population.  Ask most young adults any question about cloth diapers and the only response you’ll get is perhaps one that includes “rubber pants, pins, and a square cloth.”  […]

When You Feel Like Giving Up…

I was there yesterday.  Three kids and myself all had the stomach virus.  The little one inside me was not happy about this.  Diarrhea in a cloth diaper is the ONE time when I think, “man, I wish I could throw this in the trash.” But, despite the vomit, the poop, the horrible stinch, the […]

How to Successfully Buy Used Cloth Diapers

Let’s face it, everyone wants a good deal.  But, sometimes “too good to be true” is well “too good to be true.”  I’ve been duped twice in my 3 years of cloth diapering and it is horrible!  It took me weeks to get over that someone wanted to steal from me.  Of course there are […]

How I Use Bac-Out

There are always tons of questions when it comes to washing cloth diapers, removing stink, and how to use laundry additives.  Like most of you, we were plagued by the dreaded stinky diapers even when supposedly clean.  I had read about Bac-Out by Biokleen and gave it a shot. At first I used Bac-Out in […]

Why I Blog About Cloth Diapers

In 2005, I entered the world of cloth diapering.  I’d love to say it was an easy transition but oh my goodness was I overwhelmed.  I know for a fact that I would have not started cloth diapering at that time if it wasn’t for my wonderful friend Melisa.  She literally took me by the […]

No one wants their baby to wake up with soaked sheets or for that matter soaked sheets on your bed!  Finding a cover that works best for your baby can be such a challenge though.  For many, a Thirsties cover works just fine.  Yet others require something substantially more bulletproof. We have gone through many […]

To Wet or Dry Pail It…That Is The Question

I have always used a dry pail.  Even written about how I would never use a wet pail.  Until now. The stinkiness just got to be too much.  My husband and oldest daughter complained incessantly about the smell of Paisley’s diapers.  Haley (my oldest) was always calling for me to change Paisley’s “stinky pee” when […]

I’ve recently received a number of emails wondering how the Laundry Ball and Zorb are performing after repeated uses.

My love for Baby Be Blessed began when I found their website.  I am easily captivated by gorgeous websites with eyecatching graphics.  Yet even I know that a great website doesn’t equal a great product.  My next step was to buy something, anything from these Canadian WAHMs. I discovered Baby Be Blessed while doing research […]
