My First Reaction to Cloth Diapers
September 2, 2016 8:00 am | by

When I had my first child, I didn’t even know that cloth diapers were still a thing. So of course, there was no question in my mind whether or not I would use disposable diapers. It wasn’t until my second pregnancy that I discovered cloth diapers still existed. You see, my sister-in-law was also pregnant at the time and after some research, she made the decision to cloth her first baby. I, however, still had the mindset of using disposable diapers. It’s just what you did, or so I thought. So what was my first reaction to cloth diapers? “Ummmmm that’s disgusting. You’re going

 
Cloth 101: Breastfed Baby Poop

Prepping Your New Cloth Diapers

It’s World Breastfeeding Week, and to celebrate, let’s talk about one of our favorite subjects: POOP! We’re not going to talk about just any poop, though. Instead, we are going through the ins and outs of exclusively breastfed (EBF) baby poo. Now, if you don’t know, a breastfed-baby’s poop is a bit different than a formula-fed baby’s. Here’s what you need to know about EBF (please know that this information does not provide any medical advice). What’s normal? The color and consistency of poo varies widely in EBF babies. It also varies kid to kid. Babies who are exclusively breastfed will typically have

 
What to do with the poop?

Prepping Your New Cloth Diapers

Poop is gross. It stinks. It’s weird looking. It’s messy, and it also gives people the wrong idea about cloth diapers. But when it comes to cloth diapering most people just want to know what to do with the poop. One of the main reasons people decide not to use cloth diapers is the poop. Often, I hear people say, “I don’t want to touch it or even get it on me.” or the first question they as is what to do with the poop? I, too, feel this sentiment, but good news folks! With modern cloth diapers like bumGenius, you

Prepping Your New Cloth Diapers

Say goodbye to dunking your dirty cloth diapers in the toilet! Or, if you prefer to scrape ’em out with a spatula, get rid of that, too. The bumGenius Diaper Sprayer has been put on this Earth for a reason: to eliminate the messy work (aka poop) associated with cleaning cloth diapers. Using a diaper sprayer is awesome. It rinses your diapers in seconds without you having to stick your hands in poo water. All the “yuck” goes right into the toilet and, if you use it with a SprayPal, you can avoid any potential backsplash. The bumGenius diaper sprayer  is easy to install.

 
Reusable Cloth Wipes

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

 
Potty Training – What to do when it’s time for #2
September 26, 2012 10:30 am | by

After almost 3 months of being completely potty trained for peeing (self initiating, able to go to the potty all by himself), my almost-3-year-old son still refused to poop in the potty. Any potty. Not his potty chair, not a potty seat on the big potty, not even the kid-sized potty at his preschool. Every single day, I used my diaper sprayer to spray poop out of his big boy underwear while we repeated the same conversation:Me: “Where does the poop go?”Him: “In the potty”Me: “Where did you put it?”Him: “In my underwear” *sigh* It got to the point where

 
How potty training affects laundry
June 23, 2012 9:36 am | by

Potty training, for us, means instantly less diaper laundry. Hooray! The potty training toddler is still having accidents, but it is definitely a huge difference to have only one baby in cloth when I was accustomed to two. I’m no longer having to run loads of laundry and stuff pockets late into the night because I’ve run out of diapers. Occasionally, the diaper pail wet bag is actually full before I run out of diapers! While I’m really enjoying less urgency in washing my stash, I’ve also learned from the more experienced cloth diaper mamas that I have to be

 
Warehouse Roulette – The Sh*tcan
April 26, 2012 5:30 am | 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.   This location really could be anything. It’s one of the areas where we park incoming pallets that act like in-laws. Sometimes it’s a short stay,
