Cloth 201: Diaper Creams
June 11, 2012 11:10 am | by

One of the benefits of cloth diapering is that many parents discover they have less diaper rash once they switch to cloth. But sometimes life happens, be it a virus, food sensitivity, a detergent sensitivity, or an unfortunate poopy diaper that stays on too long. We get quite a few calls about how to safely use a diaper cream with your favorite Elemental Joy, bumGenius, Flip and Econobum products. Diaper rash creams are generally safe to use with cloth diapers when used in appropriate amounts. Follow the directions on the container for best results. When using a diaper rash cream that

Tuesday Giveaway: All in a day’s work
May 29, 2012 3:05 pm | by

Summer is full of fun – swimming, road trips, vacations, park play dates, visiting guests and more. However, as I’m sure you’ve already discovered, there is no vacation from parenting. Children still have to be fed, bathed, diapered and put to sleep, no matter what your calendar says. Life is busy and even with our best intentions, it may not always be possible to cloth diaper, especially during times when you are away from home, don’t have access to laundry facilites or more. That’s why our Change 3 Things Challenge asks parents to change at least 3 cloth diapers a

Cloth Diapers and Mud

Cloth Diaper Creams

Now that spring has sprung (for most of us), it’s time to get outside and really enjoy the warmer weather. Unfortunately, spring often brings rain along with the warmer weather. And at least in my backyard, rain = mud. Some people don’t like letting their kids play in the mud- and it can be a little overwhelming, it terms of mess. But there are things we can do to make clean up easier on ourselves. For my older kids, who are (somewhat) less inclined to really roll in the mud, I usually just let them go as long as they

Cloth Diapers 101: Types of Cloth Diapers
March 19, 2012 1:46 pm | by

It has been more than a year since we shared information about the different styles or types of cloth diapers currently available. There are a lot of new products that have been introduced in the last year, so we thought a little refresher course might help. Just like any new hobby or skill you learn, parenting and especially cloth diapering, comes with its own jargon. I was really confused when I first started, then I got the hang of it. I felt pretty confident when I joined the Cotton Babies team only to learn there was a lot more to

Tuesday Giveaway: Try it, you’ll like it!
March 13, 2012 2:58 pm | by

Last night, during our weekly Twitter chat, someone asked, “What is one thing you would tell a mama who wants to try cloth diapers?” My immediate response to a question like this is always, “Just try it!” When I first researched cloth diapers, I was completely overwhelmed at all the styles, options and the extra laundry steps. What I realized, once I gave it a whirl, was that it was that the laundry wasn’t too difficult (really only an extra wash cycle) and that the diapers aren’t as complex as I imagined. That’s probably why I just love the idea

Warehouse Roulette – Naked Covers
February 23, 2012 11:59 pm | by

  I’ve been bugged by Jenn and others to write posts on the blog for a long time, but I didn’t want to have to figure out what to write about while staying somewhat on topic. So the obvious solution was to write about random things in the warehouse. Warehouse roulette! To make it fun and very random, I put all of the warehouse locations in a box, mixed it up and drew a location.   For this week I thought I’d try to get ahead of the game and draw the location early so I had the weekend to

How to dry your cloth diapers

Prepping Cloth Diapers

It has been almost a year since we’ve shared information about how to dry your cloth diapers. In that time, we’ve retired some products and created some new ones. Today, we are updating this information in case you are new to cloth diapering or just needed a reminder. We get a lot of questions about how to dry diapers. Many of you want to know more specifics about how to safely dry your diapers, especially during the cold, damp winter months. Our basic instructions are “Line-dry covers and diaper shells. Tumble dry inserts, fitteds and prefolds.” Making sure to dry

Cloth 101: Rise setting for One-Size diapers and covers
August 29, 2011 5:12 am | by

Cotton Babies pioneered cloth diapers featuring three rows of snaps, three snaps in each row. This 3×3 snap down design gives each diaper a small, medium and large size setting. We have some weight guidelines to help you know which size should fit your little one. To use the small rise setting, snap the rise snaps to the top of the three rows of snaps. This small size setting is used from approximately 8 to 16 pounds. To use the medium rise setting, snap the rise snaps to the middle of the three rows of snaps. This medium size setting

Change 3 Things Giveaway!
July 19, 2011 5:13 am | by

It’s been a little over 4 months since we launched our Change 3 Things campaign. In that time, Change 3 Things participants have changed more than 3,250,000 cloth diapers. That’s more than 3 million diapers that are not going into landfills! This means that together, participants have prevented waste equivalent to more than 1,895 babies wearing disposable diapers for a year. That is an amazing amount of impact in local landfills by parents who commit to change at least 3 cloth diapers a day.   We want to spread the word about Change 3 Things, so for today’s giveaway, share
