Real Mom Talk: The WRONG Way to Cloth Diaper
April 22, 2014 6:16 pm | by

EDITOR’S NOTE: This post is completely satirical. It is our attempt to make you smile 🙂 The wrong way to cloth diaper…from the experts When my husband and I started cloth diapering we felt like everyone was the expert except for us.  All of my friends used “lingo” we had never heard of.  We didn’t know all the different types of diapers or even what we needed to buy to properly cloth diaper- what the heck was a wet bag or a diaper sprayer?  Things we learned along the way… If you buy diapers that you have to stuff, never

Real Mom Talk: Even MORE Benefits of Cloth Diapers
April 22, 2014 5:53 pm | by

There are a lot of benefits of cloth diapering– economical, environmental, and reports of earlier potty training or less diaper rash. What initially drew my family to cloth diapering was cost. My husband and I had been married a little less than two years, we were young, we didn’t have a ton of money, but we knew that I wanted to stay home with our baby if we could make it work. So when I was pregnant (as soon as I stopped puking eight times a day) I started researching ways to save money. Cloth diapers immediately came up. I

Cloth 101: Affording Cloth Diapers
April 20, 2014 5:10 pm | by

It’s Real Diaper Week, which means we want to prove that real diapers are an real option for any family.  One of the most common things I hear from parents who are considering cloth diapers is “I can’t afford it.”  But when I listen to those words, all I hear is, “I can’t afford cloth diapers right now.”  One of the biggest misconceptions about cloth diapers is that you need to purchase a huge stash of five dozen diapers in the latest colors and prints. Right now. This isn’t true. What you do need to purchase is enough cloth diapers to get

Real Mom Talk: Cloth Diaper Musts
April 20, 2014 3:04 pm | by

When I started cloth diapering I wasn’t very educated on everything that I would need or the things that would make cloth diapering a little easier to do. I basically started out with diapers, inserts, and a detergent a friend recommended that I buy. Since then I’ve invested in a few cloth diapering accessories that I love and are super handy to have on hand. Here are a few of my favorites! You can find most of these at!  Diaper Sprayer: A diaper sprayer is a must when it comes to using cloth. It is easy to use and

Real Mom Talk: Benefits of Cloth Diapers
April 19, 2014 10:07 am | by

Some benefits of cloth diapering are obvious while others really aren’t. In the spirit of Real Diaper Week, let’s talk about them! Saving Money. This one is pretty obvious, especially if you have used disposables in the past. Let’s say you buy 2 boxes of name brand disposables once a month. For 2 ½ years, you would spend $2,100 on diapers alone. Want to add in the cost of wipes? You’re now looking at $3,000. This total also includes only one child!! By purchasing cloth diapers and wipes, you can save over $2,000 and use them for multiple children. How
