hybrid diapers

Hello Hybrid Diapers

A final type of diaper that I want to introduce to you is called a “hybrid”. Hybrid diapers are very nice because they provide a lot of options for someone who needs extra flexibility with cloth diapering. A hybrid diaper is a diaper cover system which can have a cloth insert or a disposable insert. If you choose to use a cloth insert than a hybrid diaper is basically no different than a regular diaper cover system. However, the benefit of a […]

fitted diaper

Make it Fit – Fitted Diaper

Although I have never gotten to try a fitted diaper on Jocelyn, I have heard great things about it. Fitted diapers are known for being an extremely absorbent and leak-free way to diaper, particularly when paired with a diaper cover. A fitted diaper is basically just one large absorbent layer which is fastened to the baby like other cloth diapers with snaps or hook and loop.  While a fitted can be used on its own, it is wise to pair it with […]

Cloth Diapers Cheap – Diaper Cover

Cloth Diapers Cheap I can tell you from my experience if you’re looking for cloth diapers cheap, a diaper cover with insert or prefold is probably the way to go. And, it is not a bad way to go either. I have tried a couple diaper covers with inserts and have had good luck avoiding leaks. A diaper cover is a waterproof layer which allows for a separate absorbent layer to be placed inside. The diaper cover is then fastened (with snaps […]

all-in-one diapers

It’s All-In-One Diapers

I recently had the opportunity to try out the new bumGenius all-in-one diaper and I have to say that I was quite pleased with it. All-in-one diapers seem to be the newest fad in cloth diapers as several companies have recently unveiled a new all-in-one diaper. I can certainly see why as they are very easy to use. All-in-one diapers are cloth diapers which have all of the elements of a diaper attached as one piece. This means that the absorbent layer […]

Pocket Diaper Tutorial

A Pocket Diaper Tutorial

A few days ago, I met with a friend to do my first meeting as a consultant for DiaperHQ. As I was explaining all the options for diapers, I realized how confusing it can all be. So, I thought that I would spend the next few post explaining the most popular cloth diaper options. Today, we will begin with one of my favorites–a pocket diaper. Pocket diapers are a very popular modern cloth diaper. Pocket diapers consist in a waterproof outer, a stay-dry […]

Storing Cloth Diapers

When they’re clean – Storing Cloth Diapers

Over the past few days, I have been discussing the storage of my cloth diapers while they are dirty. Today, I thought I would cover storing cloth diapers when they are clean. I wish I could say that I had a perfect routine for storing my cloth diapers after they come out of the dryer. But honestly, my clean cloth diapers have two storage locations; one which is ideal and the other one is much less so. One makes changing Jocelyn’s diapers […]

Diaper Storage Room

My Laundry Room = Diaper Storage Room, Part II

On Monday, I discussed our choice to store our dirty diapers in our laundry room. As I said, we are pleased with how this has worked out. However, one problem did arise quickly after making this switch. What was that problem you ask? Well, since our laundry room is small and often closed for hours on end, the ammonia smell of dirty diapers tended to build up. Since I really wanted to be able to enter my laundry room without being accosted […]

Diaper Storage Room

My Laundry Room = Diaper Storage Room

When I first started with cloth diapers one big decision I had to make was where to store my dirty diapers. In a previous post, I discussed my decision to store my dirty cloth diapers in a dry hanging pail. After deciding how to store my dirty diapers, the next decision was where to store them. I first thought that I should hang the diaper pail on the changing table itself so that I could drop the dirty diapers in pail after changing […]

hemp inserts

My Super Soaker And Our New Hemp Inserts

I believe that I have mentioned previously that my little girl is quite the heavy wetter. I have even taken to calling her a super soaker. For months now, her dad and I have been trying to find ways to make her diapers absorbent enough to avoid leaks. I had heard very good things about hemp inserts/doublers so I finally splurged and purchased a few [you can find them here]. My Decision I first decided to give hemp inserts a try because […]
