Exciting news!!

We are so thrilled with our week 10 Fluff Friday winner package, the bumGenius assortment pack. Before winning the contest, I had only tried bumGenius's 3.0 pocket diaper. We loved those for nighttime, but since I hadn't heard much about their all-in-one diapers, I wasn't sure what to expect.

I ended up being a bumGenius all-in-one convert! We love the organic one-size diaper for overnight, and since it's lined with organic cotton, it's a great option for those who are hoping to avoid suedecloth or synthetics. We've bought a few of those, and I hope we can continue to use them as she grows. Also, if you haven't seen the new bright shades from bumGenius yet, you must check them out! We love the "ribbit" color.

The contest package also included a regular bumGenius all-in-one sized diaper, and we can't believe how trim these are! They've become our diaper of choice for outings, and for whenever we want a trimmer look. Grace's grandparents now request these instead of our usual fitteds and call them the "good diapers." In addition, the 3.0 all-in-ones now include a pocket, so they're stuffable too if you need a bit of extra absorbency.

Even though bumGenius's pocket diaper gets all the attention, I am really loving the all-in-ones best now. As a busy mom running our home business, it's nice to be able to skip the step of stuffing the pockets, and these have the same great quality, colors, and fit that we've all come to expect of bumGenius diapers.

Thanks, Kelly's Closet!

Fluff Friday Winner from Week 14!!!!!

Read the full story here...

PhotobucketIn 1952 this snazzy new idea was first patented, a lady by the name of Heller Max thought of this amazing way to adjust the length of the elastic area making each size fit a bigger range of people. US Patent 1672017 shows the she invented button adjustments to fit securly unto a waist band to give the item an exact fit. This new way to adjust waists with an elastic strip secured by buttons was soon picked up by most major clothing companies and today we still use this idea focused especially now on children's apparel.

PhotobucketIn early 2005 this now older idea became innovative when it was used in the cloth diaper industry. The company Mother's Eve was born and used the adjustable elastic idea to pull the rise of the diaper from bigger to small thus eliminating the adjustable snaps that clutter the front of the one size diaper. Although this diaper was a wonderful idea, it closed with a large piece of Velcro that some felt was bulky and unfortunately it fell by the way side.

PhotobucketTo find the next adjustable elastic diaper you must follow me half way around the world We will land in New Zealand where Baby Cheeks has developed, marketed and now has a patent on the adjustable leg elastic diaper. As a side note Rocky Mountain Diaper will never be sold or marketed to anyone in New Zealand or Australia in respect of their patent. They are a beautiful diaper with very cute trim like none we have ever seen.

PhotobucketBack in the USA, this idea is now spreading farther, In 2006 a company called Precious Dignity put in adjustable legs in its Clover Fitted Diaper, the diaper adjusts using buttons hole elastic to fine tune the leg fit. It also is the first diaper to have a replaceable leg elastic capabilities. While some might be concerned about sewn on buttons, there is no need to worry about that, Clover has hidden the elastic adjustments into a secure compartment that has no access for children and can be replaced easily. They also have a almost unheard of warranty that will out last not only the diaper but will still be active when you child goes off to college. This is a diaper worth checking out!

PhotobucketSarah Van Bogart of SoftBums has been in the diaper making business for years now. She realized there was a real need for a diaper that fit all shapes. She soon started to perfecting her original SoftBums diaper and after many testers and lots of patterns she found the prefect fit! This Perfect Fit diaper uses elastic adjustments in the leg that holds tight. She is soon hoping to ramp up production and offer her diaper to retailers so more babies will be able to enjoy a "perfect fit." To check out these great diaper click here.

PhotobucketIn 2007 I found out I was expecting again and couldn't wait to cloth diaper the new baby. After modifying several diapers that I had with this type of elastic casing I just decided to try a go at it and make my own. My little diaper soon became popular in my social circle and I found inspiration in our own backyard and named the diapers after the beautiful mountain range we call home. Although I wish I could say that our leg elastic was originally the one of Rocky Mountain Diapers, you can see, we are just a part of the ever expanding companies using the adjustable elastic idea of Heller Max.

History Of The Adjustable Elastic Diaper

Read the full story here...

PhotobucketAs a mom of two boys in diapers, cloth diapering has been extremely beneficial to my family. I am a stay at home mom and so we are on one income. We try to cut costs as much as we can so that I can continue to stay at home with our children. Cloth diapering is one of the ways we reduce our expenses.

Before I started cloth diapering my boys I had a very negative view of cloth diapers. I pictured the "old-timey" diapers with pins. However, after doing some research, I learned how easy cloth diapering could be. I began when my older son, Carter was a little over a year old, and my younger son, Evan was 5 months old. I decided pocket diapers were the best fit for our family, so I started out with Bumgenuis pocket diapers. I used those for a while with great success.

However, once my little one started putting on a little chub around his belly, I had difficulty keeping the velcro tabs attatched. I then began using Fuzzi Bunz and have been with those ever since. I have built up a decent size stash, so I do laundry every two days or so. I am expecting our third baby, and will cloth diaper them as well. All in all, with these three children, we will have saved thousands of dollars on diapering and we also have the satisfaction of knowing we are not filling up landfills as well.

Diapering times TWO!

Read the full story here...

Cloth diapering one child is challenging enough; how about diapering for two? Whether you have twins or two children close in age, both in diapers – try to look on the bright side… it’s double the cloth diapering fun!

First of all, take pride in the fact that your savings and overall environmental impact are far more significant than a person diapering only one child. I did a quick accounting and even with very modest calculations, with disposables you’re looking at approximately 5000+ diapers per year for two children in diapers – and a minimum of $1000. Wow, the numbers sure do add up in the long term!
PhotobucketMy oldest daughter was only 6 months old when I discovered I was pregnant again. When my second darling daughter was born I was a proud mommy to a newborn and a 15 month old, both in diapers. At that time I was not cloth diapering and believe me, knowing what I know now – I regret it! My husband was initially against cloth diapering so instead we were literally wasting well over $100 a monthon disposables and wipes. Believe me, there’s a number of things I would have rather spent that $100 on rather that tossing my money in the trash!

With cloth diapering, that’s not the case (ok, so I haven’t exactly stopped buying cloth diapers, but at least I’m getting my money’s worth and I have something to show for it). Long gone are our disposable buying days! I even try and imagine all the FUN I missed out on cloth diapering my two girls at the same time! My husband lovingly teases me, “You don’t have daughters; you have two dolls.” Had I cloth diapered them early on I would have thoroughly enjoyed clothing their bums in the beautiful colors and prints that cloth diapers have to offer.

Diaper changesPhotobucket for two don’t have to be a dreadful task! Take advantage of the one on one time and enjoy the moment while you’re changing him/her. Tell your little one a special short story, or make silly faces to catch their attention and bring a smile to their face (and yours too)! Diaper changes are actually one of my favorite times with my little man; I have a cute little stuffed toy I keep on the changing table to use for playing with him during diaper changes. At night, I let my girls pick out which color diaper/pull up they want to wear for bed. As I help them put on their nighttime cloth diaper/pull up I make it a point to give them a big hug and a kiss and tell them how special they are.

Naturally diapering two children is a little more work, but not much. The most important factor is determining your approach and a system that will work best for you.

Things to consider when cloth diapering two:
*Which cloth diapers work best?
If you’re looking to truly diaper on a dime- then prefolds and covers are not only economical but also work phenomenally well. Oftentimes, when the youngest baby grows bigger, you can use premium sized prefolds for both children and then they will each have covers in the appropriate sizes.

However, the one size pocket diapers are rapidly growing in popularity since the one diaper can typically fit both children (with minor adjustments). Essentially you’re getting the most bang for your buck!

*How many diapers will I need?
This will depend heavily on your budget and how often you plan to wash your diapers. Personally, I believe it’s better to overestimate than underestimate. I’d rather have a few extra clean diapers than realize I need to do a load of laundry – STAT! Figure approximately 10 diapers per child per day to be on the safe side.

A general rule of thumb is to do diaper laundry every other day. However, there are some who have just enough diapers to get through a day and others who could go several days. Sometimes it’s hard to think spending an extra $100-200 on additional cloth diapers is going to save you money, but in the long run it can/will. Diapers worn and washed every day are going to wear out significantly faster than diapers worn and washed less often.

So, if your budget will allow you to buy additional diapers versus washing laundry every day or every other day – go for the additional diapers. This will be less of a headache for you but also ensure your diapers last a bit longer too!

Some tips and tricks…
1. Purchase gender neutral colors which can be used for either a boy or a girl.
OR purchase a specific color for each child so hubby (or anyone else) knows which color fits which child

2. Have two diaper pails, one for each child’s diapers and wash their diapers in separate loads so they don’t get all mixed.

How To use a Soft Bums - Video

Read the full story here...

PhotobucketSarah VanBogart is a work at home mom, or WAHM. In the past she has been a veterinary technician, office manager and paralegal. But when she became a mother, her children became her priority and she found that she didn't want to go to work and send the kids off to daycare. So she stayed home, even homeschooling for a year, and eventually found that she could do this and make a living at the same time by selling the diapers she was already making for her own children to other people around the world. Isn't the internet great!

Sarah made her first cloth diapers for her second baby. She started sewing them herself because she badly wanted to get some nice fitted newborn size diapers, but couldn't afford anything more than prefolds and covers. So instead she went and bought a couple yards of fabric and sewed them up herself.

7 years, 2 babies and hundreds of diapers later, she introduced PerfectFit diapers in May of 2008. These diapers were the result of endless changes and experiments with different patterns, materials and ideas over the course of many years. Many of these were products she sold under the brand names Fancy Pants, Pollywog Babies and Softbums since the early days of WAHMs on the internet. The PerfectFit is the latest in the line of Softbums cloth diapers, which have been known for their quality, value and uniquely trim fit for nearly 5 years.

Softbums PerfectFit diapers are the Pocket-less, Pockets. No stuffing, no un-stuffing, takes up less room in the washer, and diaper bag, and best of all the cost is comparable to Prefolds and covers! Softbums PerfectFit All-in-2's are a new idea on an old standby. Similar to Prefolds and Covers, All-in-2's use a 2 part system, except that unlike Prefolds, you don't have to fold the diaper part. Simply snap in the Contoured Snap-in Insert and you are ready to put it on baby. This allows you to not only have quick and easy changes, but also allows you to re-use the cover! Re-using the cover is not always possible with All-in-2's, but because Softbums are so sleek and trim, the Contoured Snap-in Insert fits perfectly in the cover. This means that your covers are sometimes totally dry when you change baby, and you can immediately replace the Snap-in Insert with a clean one!
Photobucket
Softbums PerfectFit All-in-2's are made of a contoured absorbent Snap-in Insert of 3 layers of Organic Hemp/cotton French terry, topped with soft white microfleece. Covers are made of a Waterproof PUL outer in your choice of solid colors(prints coming soon!), a soft white microfleece inner, high quality elastic in legs and back of diaper, super strong fray-proof Aplix closures with cross over and fold back tabs. And of course our patent pending Snuggers hidden inside each cover to adjust the legs for your baby to get a perfect fit on every baby, every time!
