Real Mom Talk: Cloth Diapers at Daycare

So you’ve gotten over the learning curve of cloth diapering, and you’re loving the fuzzy bum on your new bundle of joy. It’s easy for you because you’ve got your washing routine down and all your supplies where you need them! But what about when it comes time to hand off your little one to a different caretaker? Whether it is a family member, a babysitter, a Mother’s Day Out program once a week, or even regular daycare – talking to someone who isn’t familiar with cloth diapers can be daunting! My Experience with Cloth Diapers at Daycare After my

Cloth Diaper Accessories Guide
October 17, 2016 3:11 pm | by

One of the great things about cloth diapering (besides these reasons, of course!) is that it plays so well into the now-trending “minimalist” way of life. Cloth diapering is SIMPLE, affordable, and significantly reduces waste! It is win-win-win for the minimalist-minded mama! There are, however, some accessories that are – for the most part – necessary to cloth diaper. These include reusable cloth wipes, a diaper pail or large wet bag, and diaper-safe detergent. That’s it! That’s all you’ll need (besides cloth diapers, of course) to successfully cloth diaper your child. This is your cloth diaper accessories guide. Our bumGenius Flannel

Cloth Diaper Creams

Just the other day I was thinking back on my cloth diapering journey of almost 4 years continuously and simultaneously diapering two babies. I thought to myself: what part of reusing diapers has made the most difference in my day-to-day life? The answer might surprise you. It’s actually cloth wipes! My washing routine for cloth diapers has changed slightly over the years by moving houses and going from top-loading machine to high efficiency front-loader. My preferences in cloth diapers has changed too — at first I was a hook-and-loop girl, and now I’m definitely a fan of snaps. But I

My Modular Diaper Bag
July 2, 2012 7:55 pm | by

Our last post featured the contents of Jill’s diaper bag, so I thought I’d show you mine, too! My favorite diaper bag was always the Petunia Picklebottom touring tote, but when we added a second child in cloth diapers to our family, it was suddenly too small! Instead of upgrading to the Sashay Satchel (which would have been my first choice but wasn’t in the budget at the time), I decided to go to Etsy and find an artisan that could make me a bag from cloth. Mine was custom-made, but here’s the design it is based on from The

That’s How I Roll… With My Diaper Bag
June 30, 2012 12:35 pm | by

After toting diaper bags for over 4 years, I think I finally have the contents paired down to the right amount of helpful stuff without over-stuffing it with half the medicine cabinet and 2/3 of the nursery. Come on, admit it. As a new mom you walk around with so much stuff for your baby, you should be dragging a rolling luggage bag behind you, right? Granted, we are beyond the newborn stage, and I have one who’s potty trained, so I don’t need to carry quite as much stuff as is needed with tiny babies. So here’s a little

My Husband, the Daddy

Editor’s note: This blog post was written and intended to be published in time for Father’s Day. However, the newest addition to Jessica’s family had other plans in mind, which required some last minute edits. We’re happy to announce the arrival of another little one into the Cotton Babies family and hope you enjoy this piece, despite it’s slightly late arrival. The first baby my husband ever held was my nephew, for probably 3 minutes before handing him back to me. Fast forward 19 months, and the next baby he held was our daughter. I remember him asking me when
