Prepping Your New Cloth Diapers

We’ve been seeing a lot of people ask lately about how to prep cloth diapers. Ask no more! We’re here to help! With the arrival of Jolly and Stellar, the newest colors available in your favorite bumGenius, Flip and Econobum diapers, you may be wondering how to wash these products since the shades are so vivid. For brighter, bolder colors like Stellar (as well as Hummingbird, Armadillo, Sassy, Countess, Clementine, Mirror, Twilight, Albert, Dazzle and Moonbeam), we recommend washing these diapers with ‘like’ colors for the first few washes to avoid any transfer of dye to other lighter colors. These do not have

Cloth Diaper Creams

There is so much to learn when it comes to using cloth diapers.  You have to become familiar with the different diapers and inserts, find the right technique that will keep your little one dry, and nail down the perfect wash routine.  All of which is simple to do. Many families wonder what to do if your water is hard. So what is hard water?  Hard water has high mineral content.  More than 85 percent of the country has hard water.  The mineral content in the water varies region-to-region and water source. Why does hard water cause problems with cloth diapers?

Prepping Your New Cloth Diapers

Spring is here and that means one thing – it’s time to freshen your cloth diapers with a little sun. Has your little one been trying new foods this winter and spring?  Blueberries and other foods can often leave a mark on your cloth diapers.  In winter, it can be difficult to remove stains inside your cloth diapers.  Sunning cloth diapers not only removes stains, but is a natural way to sanitize your laundry.  With spring upon us and more sunshine in most of our forecasts, now is the perfect time for your cloth diapers to catch some rays.

Drying cloth diapers indoors

Cloth Diaper Creams

Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow earlier this month, so as the legend says, we should expect an early spring. I’m not sure about you, but I’m definitely ready for spring. However, for many of us, spring means lots of rainy days, which can be a bit challenging when drying your cloth diapers. If you read the packages of your bumGenius, Flip and Econobum cloth diapers, you’ll see that we recommend “line drying” most of your diapers. Not only is line drying environmentally friendly, it also puts less wear on your cloth diapers than a trip through the dryer. But you

 
How many cloth diapers do I need to start?
January 21, 2013 11:00 am | by

One of the first questions that anyone who is considering cloth diapering asks is “How many diapers do I need to cloth diaper?” Recommended Minimum Number of Cloth Diapers For full time cloth diapering, we recommend 24 cloth diapers, regardless of the style you choose. Why 24? Breastfed newborns often go through 8-10 cloth diapers a day. To avoid stink, mold, mildew and other issues, we recommending washing your cloth diapers every other day. With 24 diapers, you have a few extra clean cloth diapers to get you through a day or two while the rest are in the washing

 
Cloth 201: Cloth diapers and mold
September 3, 2012 3:06 pm | by

I know it’s a holiday, but quick… did you grab that wet bag out of the trunk of the car when you came home last night? If not, go run and grab it before you get distracted. It’s so easy to get distracted and lose track of a diaper or two, or even worse, your whole stash. It’s sad, but we occasionally hear stories of a cloth diapering parent’s worst nightmare… losing part or all of their cloth diaper stash due to mold, mildew or worse. Mold will look like little black dots scattered in the fibers of your cloth

 
Thursday Giveaway: Take a vacation with Flip!
July 5, 2012 3:11 pm | by

Every parent needs a good vacation every now and then. However, your idea of vacation and mine may differ greatly. Honestly, it’s a good day of vacation when I don’t have to cook, wash dishes or laundry and I can lounge around reading a good book for as long as I like. I’m a simple girl, with simple wishes. With a family of six, days where I don’t have to do a single chore are pretty much only in my dreams. That’s one reason why I love the Flip diapering system. The three different styles of inserts cover just about

 
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

 
Laundry Survival

On the heels of Heather’s Laundry Lament, I bring you some tips on how to stay on top of your laundry during the busy & crazy times of life. Which, let’s face it, ends up being every other week this time of year between vacations, full schedules, lots of special events and fun summer activities. When you’re out and about it’s way easier to forget about the laundry in the hamper, or worse, in the washing machine and fall behind. Then you have a mountain of laundry to tackle all at once the night before you’re leaving for a trip
