When most people look at a prefold cloth diapers and covers they think of their grandma pinning it and covering it with a huge white plastic cover.  However, this traditional diapering method has come a long way since then!

Hanging Cloth Diapers To Dry

Hanging Cloth Diapers To Dry

I recently have begun hanging cloth diapers to dry instead of using my dryer on the covers. This is something that I just never considered doing when I first started cloth diapering. After prepping (Deep cleaning) my diapers for the first time, I threw them in the dryer (on low heat) to get them dry quickly. Anxious to start cloth diapering was my motivation for doing it that way. At that time, I figured that the dryer was the best and quickest method […]

Hello Hybrid Diapers

A final type of diaper that I want to introduce to you is called a “hybrid”.

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 […]

Make it Fit – Fitted Diaper

Stocking Up With Cloth Diaper Necessities

Before I first started cloth diapering with Jocelyn, one of the biggest questions I had was, what items will I need? I knew that I needed the diapers themselves, but how many did I need? I had an idea that I needed a way to store my soiled diapers, but what kind of pail did I need? And then, there were some things that I did not even think about like a wet bag, special laundry detergent, a diaper sprayer, extra inserts, […]

Let’s Begin (Prepping Diapers)

It is always very exciting when brand new cloth diapers arrive. I always want to put them on Jocelyn immediately. However, before using new cloth diapers for the first time they need to be prepped. Prepping is a very easy process that does not require any special know how or materials. Basically, prepping new diapers simply requires running the washer and dryer a few times. My goal with prepping diapers is to wash my new diapers approximately 4 to 5 times to […]
