Cloth Diapers – Jazzing Up bumGenius Cloth Diapers
December 26, 2007 5:41 pm | by

Cloth diapers can be fun to decorate. I wanted something fun for the holidays this year, so I purchased some puff paint and put a set of three silvery blue snowflakes on the back of one of Oscar’s white bumGenius diapers. Below you’ll find directions for an easy way to decorate your Cloth Diapers with a snowflake. The process was fun – especially with my two little helpers (age 5 and 2) at my side! Step 1: Secure the cloth diaper to your counter or tableI stretched out the diaper and taped it to my counter using clear box tape.

 
Canadian triplets – in cloth diapers
November 19, 2007 2:28 pm | by

If you are expecting multiples and want to hear from someone who has “been there, done that” with cloth diapering multiples, this article from The Prince Albert Daily Herald might provide some insight. I’m sure the cost savings of cloth diapers over disposable diapers has added up quickly for this family! With a year of experience under her belt, Charlyn has some advice for new parents of triplets, John and Sarah McDonald, of the Rural Municipality of Paddockwood, who gave birth to their triplets in Saskatoon on Nov. 5. Charlyn admits triplets are expensive but there are ways to save

 
Cloth diapers aren’t an all or nothing deal…
November 17, 2007 1:12 pm | by

I work in our retail store on the weekends occasionally. Often, the customers who come in on Saturday work a full-time job outside the home in addition to raising a baby. These are very busy families who are concerned about the environmental effects of diapering and want to raise their baby in an environmentally conscientious manner. Cloth diapers are high on their list of priorities… but they are actually embarrassed to tell me that they use disposable diapers too! Allow me to dispel any myths and knock myself off this “queen of all things natural” pedestal. I am the QUEEN

 
Britney Spears, Heidi Klum on diapers
November 14, 2007 12:30 pm | by

I guess I was lucky growing up. I knew how to use a diaper before I left home and, for some reason, I thought it was that way in most homes. Little girls play with dolls and learn how to diaper a baby, right? If they don’t learn by playing dolls, they babysit in high school and learn then. Well, it apparently doesn’t go that way for every woman. During an interview on the Ellen Degeneres Show, Heidi Klum was talking about a conversation that she had with Britney Spears. She said, “We were talking about babies and diapers and

 
A happy mama gets more sleep
November 14, 2007 12:17 pm | by

We’ve often heard from parents that their baby sleeps longer when using a cloth diaper that keeps the baby dry at night. This morning, we found a blog post from one of those moms!She just switched to bumGenius yesterday and wrote this post this morning: These diapers are just as easy to use as disposables and they are SUPER absorbent, so even when baby gets wet, he doesn’t feel wet – thus, he is able to sleep comfortably through the night and theoretically, Mommy and Daddy can too. Hallelujah! When you stop and think about it, this makes perfect sense.

 
How Do I Choose?
March 31, 2006 5:48 pm | by

One of our customers recently asked a great question on the Cotton Babies forum. It got a wonderful answer from another cloth diapering mom and with her permission, we are sharing the exchange here in hopes that it helps some parents who are still in that ‘what do we pick’ phase. Original Question: Is it really just a pure trial and error with types of CD and absorbencies until you figure something out? Does that mean I should just buy a few of each kind to begin with and hope something jumps out at me as a “this works, I
