Prepping Your New Cloth Diapers

Cloth diapers require a little bit of TLC. You will need to wash your diapers a bit differently than you would with other laundry — from start to finish. Prepping, wet towel tricks and regular washes with hot and cold cycles become part of your cloth diaper laundry routine. So, when you pick up a bumGenius Freetime, 4.0, Newborn or Flip diaper covers and Stay Dry inserts, what is the first thing you do to get these cloth diapers ready for use? Prep! Here’s how: Sort your diapers into like colors, just like you would any other laundry. Darker, bolder colors should be washed separately from lighter, pastel colors for the first few washes

Cloth Diaper Basics: Taking Cloth Diapers on the Road
September 15, 2013 8:19 pm | by

I took a three-day trip this weekend, which was much needed and very enjoyable. People go on vacation all the time, but there is a huge difference between my trip and other people who travel: I don’t have kids. Traveling with kids can seem like a huge task in itself, but traveling with kids who wear cloth diapers may be an even bigger one.  Now, even though I don’t have children, I do know a thing or two about cloth diapers. I also know a few things about traveling with cloth diapers.  If you’re planning on taking a trip or

Help Us Share the Love
September 12, 2013 5:19 pm | by

When I switched to cloth diapers from disposables there was a lot I didn’t know.  One thing that didn’t even cross my mind was that cloth diapers not only have a life beyond one diaper change, they may even have a life beyond one child.  A friend of mine mentioned using the same set of diapers on both her first and second children.  Even more awesome is that the next go-around for your cloth diapers could be sharing the love with who may not have otherwise been able to afford diapers at all. As a Mom, especially in those early days,

Thursday Giveaway: A Change Would Do You Good
September 12, 2013 3:54 am | by

I’m sure you know the Sheryl Crow Song “A Change Will Do You Good.” Now that I brought it up, you’re probably singing the chorus in your head. Like the song states, a change would do you good.

Cloth 201: High Efficiency Wash Machines
September 8, 2013 3:50 pm | by

Washing cloth diapers in a high efficiency wash machine shouldn’t be any different than washing cloth diapers in a top loader or laundromat. Sometimes, however, it is different because HE wash machines use as little water and energy as possible to clean your laundry. This can be good and bad. When washing dirty cloth diapers, it is extremely important to be sure that your bumGenius, Flip and Econobum covers are getting cleaned enough. If not, your cloth diapers may start to stink due to detergent build up and left over messes, which could irritate your baby’s sensitive skin. Finding the
