Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. It’s been a little while since I’ve done a cloth diaper review. I talked earlier this week about how to cloth diaper for less than $100, and that has got me excited about cloth diapers again. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve loved them since day one, but they’ve turned into just a fact of life rather than a hobby. I know… weird that cloth diapering can be considered a hobby… but look up some cloth diaper forums or cloth diaper groups on facebook....

It’s been a little while since I talked about cloth diapers. I did a series on it awhile ago. I know that cloth diapering is really popular right now for many reasons. Some switch to cloth because it’s cute, some because it’s economical, and other because it’s cheap. I personally started because it’s cheaper than using disposable diapers. I was looking for a way to save money. However, like many other people who cloth diaper, I got sucked into all the cute prints and different types of cloth diapers that...

Disclaimer: I was compensated for this review with a free product. All opinions expressed are my own.     So, I’ve ventured into the cloth diapering world recently and I have to say that I have been happy with the switch. One of my favorite things to do is try out new diapers, so I was excited when I got the opportunity to try out this one. This diaper is made by Organic Caboose. Organic Caboose┬« is a small company that provides organic and eco-friendly products manufactured and sourced in the USA for baby, family,...

This is the last post in a cloth diaper series. So far, I’ve talked about why I switched to cloth, my cloth diaper washing routine, how I fight diaper rash, and how I convinced my husband to do cloth diapers. This post is all about the money side of cloth diapers.  I’ve seen a lot of bloggers claim that they saved over $1000 by switching to cloth. I wasn’t too sold on that fact, so I decided to do some math on my own.  I always buy the cheapest disposable diapers I can that aren’t super crappy. That usually...

During this two week cloth diaper event, I am reviewing some of the diapers in my stash to help any future cloth diapering mama’s decide what diapers they want to buy. I received this diaper free for review purposes, but all opinions expressed are my own.   Sunbaby pocket diapers are made in China using fair labor practices. They are a one size diaper meaning they should fit your child from about 7-35 pounds. Sunbaby currently has two sizes of one size diapers, which seems a little silly, but every baby is not made the...

One of the things that a lot of people have asked me since I started cloth diapering is how my daughter doesn’t get diaper rashes with that wet fabric right next to her. Many people assume that rashes would be worse with cloth than with disposable.  Not true. At least not for us. Since we started cloth diapering, my daughter has only had one rash, and I wouldn’t really call it a rash. Just a little irritation. While there is no compelling evidence that cloth keeps rashes away, here is my theory: many people wait too long...

The biggest question I get about using cloth diapers is how I wash them. How do I handle washing out dirty diapers. I have to say that I was really worried about this part, but I figured if so many other people were doing it, so could I! It couldn’t possibly be that bad, right?  Because I switched to cloth after my daughter was 14 months old, I got lucky. I only clean poppy diapers about once a day, sometimes every other day. I know that by the time my next kid comes around, things will be a bit different with a newborn. But...

During this two week cloth diapering event, I am planning on reviewing some of the diapers in my stash. Earlier this week, I talked about a Gro-Via all-in-one diaper, today I’ll be talking about another all-in-one. This one is called a Bumkins Diaper. I actually purchased this diaper myself and was not compensated for this review in any way. I bought this diaper as my first all-in-one diaper. I bought it from my local children’s boutique store. I picked this one because it’s so stinking cute and it was the cheapest all-in-one...

One of the hardest things a lot of women who wish to cloth diaper have to go through is convincing their significant other that cloth diapering is a good thing. Here’s the thing. Cloth diapering is NOT a good thing for everybody. For instance, if you don’t have a washer and dryer in your home, DON’T DO IT! Seriously. Unless you are super dedicated and planning on going to the laundry mat 3-5 times a week &/or washing your diapers by hand, don’t do it. It is okay to use disposable diapers. They are an amazing...

During this little cloth diaper series, I am planning on reviewing a few of the diapers I have in my stash. This first review is a diaper that I received for free, for review purposes. Some of the diapers I am reviewing are ones that I purchased.  I’ll be reviewing a few different types of diapers. My stash consists of all in ones, pocket diapers, and prefolds with covers.  An all-in-one diaper is the easiest type of diaper to use, but it can also be the most expensive. It works just like a disposable diaper. When it’s...
