Do You Have The Cloth Diaper Basics Down?

Getting started with cloth diapers doesn’t have to be difficult. You just need a few very important items, in addition to cloth diapers of course. I recommend you get a flip top trash can for a pail, pail liner and a couple of plastic baskets for storage. I purchased my Sterilite pail from Walmart for […]

How We Cured a Yeast Diaper Rash

I have dealt with rashes on Paisley for pretty much her whole life (18 months). I’ve gone from thinking it was an allergy to serged diapers, then to a wool allergy, then eczema, and even food allergies.

Your Baby’s Safe…Are You?

A funny story turned into quite an experiment. Weeks ago my son found a couple of menstrual pads and stuck them to his body. In an effort to recycle, I used them as a padding for our tree stake. No one but us could tell that it was a pad protecting our tree from the […]

Pocket Diaper Inserts

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. Inserts are extremely easy to make, but for those who are sewing-challenged (I’m raising my hand) there are dozens of choices. I have divided the different inserts by the material they […]
