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 […]

An Overnight Update With My Hemp Inserts

In past posts, such as this one, I have mentioned that we struggle with containing overnight leaks. This is true whether we use cloth or disposable. It is very difficult for either to contain my heavy wetter’s 12- 13 hours of soiling. Consequently, my quest over the past few weeks has been trying to eliminate these overnight leaks. Pocket Diapers Although I could have given up on pockets and tried another system, my stubbornness wanted to keep trying to make my pocket diapers […]

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 […]

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 […]
