Real Mom Talk - Prefold Cloth Diapers

For generations, prefolds have been the staple of both cloth diapering families and cloth diaper services. Prefolds may even be the cloth diaper that your grandmother or mother used! They were a preferred diaper because they were durable, easy to wash, easy to use, and multi-purpose. 1. They are cheap. At $4 or less per diaper (depending on size and thickness) this is easily the cheapest way to cloth diaper. You can get enough diapers to get you through your baby’s entire diapering period for less than $200. 2. They are soft. After they quilt up in the first few

Prepping Cloth Diapers

Cloth diapers are an easy way to save money when you’re caring for a baby. Unlike disposables, cloth diapers are a one-time expense (unless you have to get the newest Genius Series print at each release). For some people, the upfront cost of cloth diapers can be a deterrent, although there are ways to build your stash without breaking the bank. To cloth diaper your baby full-time and wash every other day, we recommend having at least 24 diapers on hand.  Twenty-four bumGenius Freetime diapers are $399.  A 24-pack of bumGenius 4.0s is $384 while two dozen Elementals are $520.08.

Real Mom Talk: Reusable Products
September 16, 2014 6:55 pm | by

There are so many reusable products out there! Of course, my favorite would have to be cloth diapers, but I like so many others too! Reusable products help cut down on waste, save money, and can come in some cute designs and colors that throw away products don’t. Reusable sandwich bags – My husband packs his lunch almost daily. Sandwiches, chips, snacks… it really adds up. He could take up to 5 plastic bags a day. And then, they just get thrown in the trash! Who wants to literally throw money away on a daily basis? Sure, it’s only a few pennies.

Real Mom Talk: Why I Use Cloth Wipes
July 1, 2014 5:23 pm | by

Our cloth diapering story includes a few years of disposables. We had the “luxury” of wiping baby’s bum, putting the wipes in the diaper to roll up and throw away. It was easy, simple, and got rid of everything at once. Once we transitioned to cloth diapers, we were separating the disposable wipes from the cloth diaper to throw the wipes away. It felt… odd.

Prepping Cloth Diapers

Ah, summer. What’s not to love about the season? School is out, vacations are planned, and the weather is nice, which can only mean one thing: air drying cloth diapers. Line drying your cloth diapers is a great way to save money, and each month, it can put more than $10 back in your pocket. But not only that, drying your diapers in the sun can also remove stains and sanitize your stash. To dry your cloth diapers outside, you don’t need a traditional clothesline and clothespins. You can use a folding drying rack or set your diapers over a
