With the right container and a good liner, storing dirty diapers is surprisingly easy. I use an inexpensive garbage pail with a flip-up lid to store dirty wipes, diapers, inserts and covers. When my supply is running low (every two days), I toss the contents of the pail along with the Planet Wise liner right into the washing machine.

When we’re on the go, I have a Planet Wise wet bag tucked into my diaper bag. The print is adorable, and the zipper keeps the smells contained. The wet bag washes and dries easily and has plenty of room for a day’s worth of diapers. I wish my whole diaper bag had this print. Heck, I wish my purse was covered in this print!

My son goes to daycare part-time and the center has been really supportive of our cloth diaper decision. He goes through five diapers a day while in their care, but I don’t have a big enough stash to leave clean diapers there.

When I drop him off, I bring five bumGenius 3.0 pocket diapers in a clean pail liner. My diaper pail is tucked into the corner where they change diapers and the teachers insist that the cloth diapers are just as easy as disposables. I’m a big fan of the flushable liners, so I tuck one into each diaper I provide. This makes cleanup easy for the teachers and helps keep the diapers clean. When I get home with the dirty daycare diapers, I just drop the bag into the nursery diaper pail.

My pail liners are washed several times a week and they’re holding up really well. When it comes to laundering, I can’t say enough about Charlie’s Soap. I bought it specifically for the diapers, but we use it for all of our laundry. Everything comes clean and smells great, and a small bag of the powdered soap lasts a long time.

When we used disposable diapers, I changed the plastic bags in the diaper pail several times a week. I also used a small plastic bag for every dirty diaper when we were on the go. I feel so much better using bags that can be washed and used over and over. I like to think Mother Earth is breathing a bit easier thanks to these simple changes.

Storing Dirty Diapers Simple With Bags

Read the full story here...

Miracle Diapers was founded in Oregon in January of 2005 to fill a need. There were many families who wanted to cloth diaper their children for health, economical, and environmental reasons but could not due to financial restrictions. Due to the overwhelming response, Miracle Diapers decided to to open two more chapters by the end of that year. Now, under new management, Miracle Diapers is now in their fourth year of service and looks forward to expanding even further.

Their goal is to someday have representatives all over the United States. Through this they hope to not only be able to serve thousands of families in need, but to be able to educate the public on today’s cloth diapers and therefore helping cloth become more mainstream. Why are they raising money? Miracle Diapers is raising money to pay one full year's worth of rent for an office and warehouse. They prematurely set a goal of $3000 (for lesser conditions), but they're hoping to surpass this goal to meet their need. The office is in a nice, safe location and it will only be $415.38 per month (for 13 months). That's less than $14 a day to give them the professionalism and volunteer safety that they need to be able to continue to help families, all over the country, put cloth diapers on their babies.

Together let's help Miracle Diapers achieve their goal. Any sized donation is accepted! From now until July 31st DiaperShops.com will match your donation dollar for dollar!

Occupation: Stay at home mom
Loves: Impromptu beach visits; weekend hiking trips
Favourite Cloth Diaper: Blueberry

What is one cloth diapering tip you wish you had gotten at the very start?

Your stash and diapering/washing system doesn't have to be perfect at first. It will take a little while to figure out what you like/don't like and how you do things.

What is the one cloth diapering tip you would tell a new mom?
Don't assume you will or won't like a certain type of diaper without trying it. I was sure I'd hate fitteds and prefolds with covers, but they are my favorites.

What is one thing you wish you could do more of?
Cook without interruption or “help” from a two-year old.

I would be in big trouble if I lost my baby's...
Bottle. It's the only “thing” she's attached to.

One thing you can't leave home without?
My GPS – I'm hopeless with directions. If Grace falls asleep while we're out, I usually drive around until she's sound asleep. I'd never find my way back without it.

What's something unique about you?
I love making food from scratch – it has become an obsession. A few years ago my husband asked me jokingly if I could make mayonnaise. Three trips to the store and a huge mess later, we had a jar of homemade mayonnaise. I was determined to prove I could do it. I love the challenge of figuring out how to make something I've never made before. My current favorite homemade item is yogurt. I want to try to make cheese next.

BabyKicks has been designing and manufacturing superior hemp diapering products in the USA since October 2000.

Krista, the original founder and owner of Babykicks was inspired to start BabyKicks after finding the new world of WHAM-made diapers on the internet which did not exist when she had her first three kids, and invented the now famous Joey-Bunz Inserts.

In February of 2007 Krista decided to sell BabyKicks to two young entrepreneurs who share her passion for the environment and are in love with the BabyKicks product line-up. As a result of the new Family based ownership BabyKicks re-located from Chicago, IL to the eastern shore of Maryland and is steadily introducing exciting new products that make use of the many benefits of hemp based fabric.

In addition to doing our small part to help the environment - hemp based materials are much less straining on the environment then cotton only material - BabyKicks strongly believes in social responsibilities. As a result BabyKicks has been encouraging and sponsoring our employees who take part in charity fundraisers, such as the Breast Cancer 3day March or the Columbia Triathlon (benefiting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society).

Product Description: Joey-Bunz Inserts BabyKicks Hemparoo® Joey-Bunz Pouch riders for your Pocket Diapers! These are six layers of absorbent hemp/cotton jersey that are only 1/8 of an inch thick, and work great with virtually all pocket diapers. Designed to be trim, absorbent and easy to use since there's no folding. Use one Joey-Bunz for daytime, two for nighttime, or three for a super-soaker and still have a trim fit. Gently contoured to be comfortable for baby.
Joey-Bunz also make GREAT doublers or use them by themselves in a snug fitting wrap.

Joey-Bunz are better than inserts made from man-made micro fibers because hemp is a natural product, grown without pesticides and not bleached, which is very harmful to the environment. Hemp also protects your baby because it is naturally anti-microbial.

Dimensions are as follows:
13½” long, 6” at the widest part of hourglass shape and 4 ½” at the center

Why BabyKicks:
Because we make great, quality products that are made with certified organic materials in the USA. Our Joey-Bunz inserts provide you with top-quality, are extremely durable and compatible
with virtually all other cloth diapers.

How do you dry your diapers? Line Dry? Clothesline? Wooden Rack? Indoors/Outdoors?

Where I live we have a winter and a very cold long winter at that. In the winter I dry my diapers in the dryer and pail liners and wet bags get hung up. I just do not have the space to hang everything up and I keep my house cool, so it was take forever for them to dry. Now that it is warmer, above freezing, I hang them outside on a clothes line. It is always windy here, so they dry fast and the sun is great at getting all the poop stains out. I also love how they look on the line and always make sure the colors are facing the street, so everyone can enjoy them. I have also found that hanging then outside has almost completely eliminated the stink issue I was having and after a few washes and hangs the inserts fluffed back up to how they were when I got them 10 months ago.

I am not looking forward to winter again and having to put them back in the dryer and not being able to see them swaying in the breeze.
