Drying cloth diapers indoors

Cloth Diaper Creams

Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow earlier this month, so as the legend says, we should expect an early spring. I’m not sure about you, but I’m definitely ready for spring. However, for many of us, spring means lots of rainy days, which can be a bit challenging when drying your cloth diapers. If you read the packages of your bumGenius, Flip and Econobum cloth diapers, you’ll see that we recommend “line drying” most of your diapers. Not only is line drying environmentally friendly, it also puts less wear on your cloth diapers than a trip through the dryer. But you

How do they do it?
February 6, 2013 5:00 pm | by

Toddlers are amazing. They are able to quietly sit in one spot while playing with their toys in such a sweet, adorable way that makes you want to fill an entire Instagram account with pictures in less than 10 minutes. Then, the dryer buzzes or you have to check on dinner. And in the 15 seconds you aren’t watching, your sweet innocent toddler just destroyed an entire room. Let’s not even talk about what it’s like to have twins or more than one preschool age child in your home — at the same time. Depending on their age, it can

Are you considering the switch from disposable to cloth diapers but aren’t sure how to make the first steps? Econobum cloth diapers are an economical way to start cloth diapering. Econobum cloth diapers are specifically designed to be budget friendly, which means you’ll cross the threshold from investment to savings even more quickly than with other styles of cloth diapers. Let’s take a look at it this way: an Econobum trial pack comes with one cover and three cotton prefold inserts. You can wipe out and reuse the cover multiple times, which means your Econobum trial pack is three diaper

Realistic Teething Toys
January 25, 2013 5:06 pm | by

It doesn’t take too long for most parents to discover that their child’s favorite toy is often not a toy at all. Once babies begin exploring their world, they often explore by putting things in their mouth, which means they also need to be safe. We have some great new products at Cotton Babies to solve both of those problems! First up, for the baby who just loves the shine and clink of metal, we have Kleynimals stainless steel toy keys. These “keys” come three to a key ring, just like your real keys. However, they have smooth edges so

How many cloth diapers do I need to start?
January 21, 2013 11:00 am | by

One of the first questions that anyone who is considering cloth diapering asks is “How many diapers do I need to cloth diaper?” Recommended Minimum Number of Cloth Diapers For full time cloth diapering, we recommend 24 cloth diapers, regardless of the style you choose. Why 24? Breastfed newborns often go through 8-10 cloth diapers a day. To avoid stink, mold, mildew and other issues, we recommending washing your cloth diapers every other day. With 24 diapers, you have a few extra clean cloth diapers to get you through a day or two while the rest are in the washing

Thursday Giveaway: Sweet Sleep
January 17, 2013 4:00 pm | by

Do you have a sleep routine? I do. Thankfully some wise friend shared with me early in my parenting routine the importance of a consistent bedtime routine for my children. Not only do I have a routine for my children, I also have one for myself. Sleep experts say having a consistent set of behaviors before bed helps to signal your body that it is time to sleep. They suggest activities that calm you, quiet your mind and comfort your body. A nice bath or shower and clean cozy PJs are an important part of my children’s bedtime routine. Followed
