Cloth Diaper Wool Covers

Cloth Diaper Wool Covers ~ Washing? Lanolin?

Why Wear Cloth Diaper Wool Covers? The wool breathes! It allows air to circulate close to the baby’s skin, which helps prevent rashes. It also absorbs 30% of its own weight in moisture, and even then it is still dry. A great choice for late-night diapers/nappies or for toddlers. Wool covers are comfortable, soft and fluffy for the baby. A wool diaper cover allows an active child to move freely. Synthetic covers can be stiff or tight, leaving red marks on your […]

Research is in: Spanking is not for Kids!

“Spare the rod, spoil the child” is one of the oldest idioms in the United States. The belief that by hurting children, you’re teaching them discipline and correcting negative behaviors is deeply ingrained in our culture.  Furthermore,  the lack of “discipline” towards children is often blamed as an underlying motive for the behaviors of youngsters today.

how to strip cloth diapers

Deep Clean / Stripping Cloth Diapers – Blue Dawn Hysteria Is Bullcrap!

Keeping It Real! Here I go again, keeping it real! Blue Dawn is all the rave among Cloth Diaper Mammas’. While yes I’ll admit it has it’s own merits; you do not “have” to use Blue Dawn.  Honestly, I find it ridiculous when I read someone post… “You HAVE to strip your cloth diapers with Blue Dawn!” Also, you know what I hate hearing? The term “stripping diapers.” It puts thought of paint stripping in my head. It sounds like some harsh act. […]

I’m Lovin My New AppleCheeks Cloth Diapers ~

In my search for more microfleece diapers or natural fiber diapers, I ran across Applecheeks! I’d heard about them before, but I’d never given them a try, as we had previously been completely set on diapers. I think my favorite part of the Applecheeks systems is their super-crazy absorbent bamboo inserts! The insert is a huge sheet of bamboo viscose that you can fold into whichever shape works best for you. We trifold ours and put the majority up in the front. […]

A Tale of Childbirth, Newborns and Dads!

I was 23 years old when my first child was born.  For 41 weeks the changes my wife underwent in preparation for the biggest change of my life. I was about to become a father, and I couldn’t be any more excited about it. But, nothing prepared me for one of the most traumatic, yet beautiful moments in any parent’s life… the birth of their child. Little did I know the mount of blood, sweat, tears, and poop that would leave my […]
