Fluff Friday Winner from Week 5!!!!!

Read the full story here...

Have you ever asked yourself- "What in the world is PUL?" PUL is one of those "diaper lingo" terms which stands for Polyurethane Laminate. It is a type of coating that is applied to different fabrics to make them waterproof. PUL is primarily used in pocket type diapers (example: Fuzzi Bunz or Happy Heiny's). PUL is primarily used on polyester knit fabrics. If PUL is used on cotton there is a tendency for the fabric to wick moisture. PUL fabrics are 100% waterproof and able to withstand washing in hot water and a medium heat setting.

Here are some types of PUL (note- wording in italics is taken directly from Neptune Fabrics website):


1) Regular PUL is a single layer of soft polyester knit with a thin film of non-breathable polyurethane laminate (PUL) applied to one side. It is lightweight and drapes well, yet is waterproof and extremely durable.

There are 2 thicknesses: (1 mil and 2 mil)

A mil is one-thousandth of an inch. Both 1 mil and 2 mil laminates are equally waterproof, but in general the 1 mil has a more elegant drape and softer feel, and the 2 mil has a thicker, more durable feel. The 1 mil laminate is ideal as the waterproof layer for all-in-one and pocket-style cloth diapers, reusable menstrual pads and bibs. The 2 mil laminate is well suited for waterproof items requiring greater durability, such as lightweight jackets, diaper pail liners, pocket-style cloth diapers, diaper covers, wet bags and changing pads.

2) Breathable PUL is same soft polyester knit used in regular PUL, but laminated with a 1 mil layer of waterproof, breathable co-polyester film. The micro porous coating allows for dispersal of moisture vapors, which helps keep the body cool. This fabric is excellent in waterproof mattress pads, sleeping bags and all styles of waterproof cloth diapers, diaper covers, and reusable menstrual pads.

3) Sandwich PUL is formed when a 1 mil or 2 mil layer of non-breathable polyurethane laminate (PUL) is sandwiched between two layers of polyester knit fabric. Both sides of the fabric have the soft feel of the knit, but the resulting fabric is waterproof.
This is the durable variety of PUL. Perfect for diaper covers.

The major source of PUL comes from a company called Fabrite. Many manufacturer's use this company to laminate their diaper fabric. Fabrite does require a minimum of 50 yards to be laminated so a consumer is unable to buy the laminated fabric direct from Fabrite. There are many online cloth diaper fabric resources. (I will be doing a post soon on "Making your own cloth diapers" so stay tuned.)

Whether you use pocket or all in one diapers most likely your baby is staying dry thanks to the PUL!

The Whisperer Answers: What is "PUL"?

Read the full story here...


I exclusively breast fed my son (and still do breast-feed) until 5 months. He is a big boy and we are wondering how much he will weigh in at his 6 month well-child check up next week. I'll let you know next week!

Around 5 months we started him on Earth's Best Organic Rice Cereal. Our little guy couldn't tolerate it! He went from doing a "bm" (bowel movement) every diaper change to not going for 3 days. He also was extremely fussy shortly after the feeding so we decide to discontinue the cereal all together.

So a couple of more weeks pass and I decide one day that I am going to feed him sweet potatoes. My little guy is in love. By the second day he is eating 2 jars at a sitting . By day 3 the BIG "bm" came. I mean BIG, HUGE! Not to be descriptive but after-all we are talking about cloth diapers here- filled the entire diaper. Luckily- not blow-outs! Hurray.

I clean Riley up with a Thirsties Fab Wipe. Believe it or not I only used one. I proceed to put the diaper and wipe in the hanging diaper pail liner.

Wash day- I am used to just putting his diapers into the washing machine as is because his "bm's" aren't formed. Well, we have this one bumGenius diaper with a sweet potato "bm". Now what to do? I remember my hubby still hasn't installed the diaper sprayer yet. (I think I will remind him this weekend to do that...hee hee.) I quickly take the diaper over to the toilet and amazingly the "bm" falls right off the suede cloth of the diaper. Phew!

The point of this post is that once your baby starts solids there are a couple of options to make cleaning up easier. You can use a biodegradable flushable liner like the Bummis Bio-soft liners. You just lay the soft paper sheet on the top of the diaper and it works like a poop catcher. Once you change baby just take the sheet and flush away.

The next option is to use a simple diaper sprayer device that you can hook to your toilet. The sprayer eliminates that nightmare you hear your own parents talk about "dunking the dirty diapers in the toilet routine". (We don't recommend that.) The sprayer attaches to the toilet and you just spray the solids off the diaper into the toilet. (The sprayer also works nicely as a personal hygiene sprayer.)

If you travel the flushable liners are convenient. We recommend using the diaper sprayer at home as you only make the purchase once and don't need to purchase the flushable liners for use at home if you have the diaper sprayer.
