FLUFF FRIDAY 58 PLUS A LOT MORE WINNERS!

When it came time for our 20 month old son Wilson to start preschool 4 days a week I honestly didn’t even consider that I might find a place that would refuse to use cloth diapers. We've been a cloth diapering family since Wil was 7 months old, and sometimes I forget there's any other option. It's just...what we do.

Up until his recent enrollment in preschool at 19 months, I had been able to bring my son with me to my part-time job, and since our extended family lives out of state and we rarely get a babysitter, we haven't had to deal with anyone refusing to uphold our decision to cloth. So when we set about interviewing preschools in our area, I called the first one on my list and asked them every question I could think of except the cloth diaper question. After I hung up the phone, it hit me. "What if they say they won't?"

I regrouped and resumed my calls. This time I asked everyone the cloth diaper question first. I decided I wasn't looking for a place that was packed with cloth diaper addicts, and was not under the delusion I was going to find one either. The question I asked was "We use cloth diapers on our son. Is your staff familiar with cloth diapers, and if not, are they willing to learn?" I figured if they were going to say "no" to the "willing to learn" part, then we didn't need to go any further.

I'm happy to report none of them gave me a "no" response. For the most part, they were all up for at least learning about it. Good for me since one of the things I love best is talking about my cloth diapers! The school we eventually chose has been so great. They were one of the schools I interviewed who never had a cloth-diapered child, but were very excited to learn all about it.

On our initial visit and tour I sat down with my son's teachers and showed them everything they needed to know about the wonderful world of cloth. It's been three weeks, and things are going well. Wil attends school from 9am - 3:30pm and I usually pack 2 Gro Baby shells, 5 soaker pads, 5 flushable liners, and a medium sized Planet Wise wet bag. I also gave them a bag of Gro Baby Bio Soakers and a couple ‘sposies to keep there, in the event he happens to have multiple blowouts and go through everything I’ve packed (thankfully this has never happened. The staff are becoming cloth-diapering pros, picking up on the lingo, and adapting beautifully! Who wouldn’t? Cloth is addicting after all but after all!

I have found the most important element in beginning to cloth diaper is just to be open to it. This applies to both parents and caregivers alike. As long as you can find a day care or preschool that is ready and willing, you have the opportunity to introduce cloth to a new group of people, which is always fun! In addition, you may be pioneering the way for future cloth diapering families looking for daycare… instead of hearing "we've never cloth diapered here before..." they will hear the welcome words, “Absolutely! We use cloth diapers here and we love it!”

Our Cloth Diaper "Academy"

My sister in law is currently pregnant with her first baby, due in April 2010. Thankfully, she has shown interest in cloth diapering her baby, so that has gotten me thinking about advice I could share with her. I know she is interested in cloth diapering not only to protect the environment, but also to save money. I know there are probably a lot of other mom’s in the same situation, so I thought I’d share some of the ideas I’ve come up with. I remember all too well how overwhelmed I felt when I began researching cloth diapering, so hopefully I can help make some of the decisions a little easier by sharing a few options for the mom who is just beginning the journey into cloth diapering.

If saving money is your main motivation to cloth diaper, the cheapest route, hands down, would be "flats" and several diaper covers. There are a variety of ways to fold a flat diaper, and they can easily be used from newborn to toddler. For just $17.95/dozen for birdseye flats (less if you buy 3 packages or more), you can get easily cloth diaper for under $100 with flats and diaper covers. Flat diapers are easy to wash, quick to dry and take up very little room in on the changing table. For those of you who are afraid of using diaper pins around the baby, you can purchase a few Snappi's. Snappi's are a flexible diaper fastener which replace the need for scary pints and hold the diaper on just as well!

The next step up would be prefolds. Prefolds are similar to flats, in that you need fasten the diaper onto baby, however, much the majority of the "folding" has been done for you and they are sewn in such a way that the center panel has several layers for optimal absorption. Like the flat diaper, you must then use a waterproof cover over the diaper to keep babies clothing dry.
For moms who are able and/or willing to spend a little more money on a diaper stash, the all-in-one and pocket diapers are simply wonderful. They are literally just as easy to use as disposables and are the most daddy/babysitter/daycare friendly cloth diapers available. The majority of my stash is made up of pocket diapers and honestly, I’m just as happy with the $14.95 Smartipants One Size pocket diaper as I am with the $33 Blueberry Bamboo Minky One Size diaper. I jokingly compare it to shopping for a purse. I know several people who think nothing of dropping $300 on a designer purse, but does it really do anything my $30 purse can’t?

Two of the newest diapering systems I’ve looked at also are worth mentioning for the mom who is looking for a budget friendly cloth diapering option… Econobum and Flip. Both products are offered by the same manufacturer of the ever popular bumGenius diapers. While I don’t need to add a new diapering system to my cloth diaper routine, they look like a wonderful way to get started without breaking the bank. When it’s all said and done, you can get started with a nice cloth diaper stash spending as little as $100 and working up to several hundred dollars. If you are looking to begin cloth diapering and have a limited budget, I would suggest purchasing several pocket diapers for on-the-go (my personal favorites are the Smartipants and bumGenius One Size pocket diapers), a dozen flats and a dozen prefolds (or more), and 4-5 waterproof covers (my personal favorites are the Blueberry One Size Coveralls and Thirsties). Additionally, I would suggest a few Superdo inserts for overnight, as well as a few hemp inserts for extra absorbency when needed.

If you want to cloth diaper, there really is a system out there for every family and every budget.

Each week we'll be featuring one of Kelly's Closet's/DiaperShops.com leading ladies. We've had the pleasure of working with them and we thought you'd enjoy a behind the scenes peek at the individuals who make it all possible.

Today we're featuring Serena.

Serena has been working at Kelly’s Closet since January 2009 and is a jack of all traits. She primarily handles customer service inquiries by responding to emails and calls. She also helps maintain blog content, scheduling and comments.

She is the resident “cloth diaper and laundry guru” and always makes an effort to answer any questions she can when it comes to laundering a cloth diaper.

Serena is married, has three children Aaliyah (5), Halimah (3) and Ilyas (1), and a nameless bunny. Here’s a bit more about Serena:

If you were a CD brand, what would you be and why? bumGenius - because I’d like to think of myself as a genius, and well, I’m a bit smart arse!

Do you cloth diaper your children: I am currently cloth diapering Ilyas. However, Halimah and Aaliyah both wear cloth diapers during the night time.

What are four words your mother would say describes you?
Does “pain-in-the-bum” count as four words? LOL! She says I’m bossy, [extremely] organized, generous, and helpful.

Favorite movie? It’s a three-way tie between the Wizard of Oz, Goonies, and 16 Candles.

Favorite book? I hate to admit this - but it’s Harry Potter.

One product you can’t live without? There are two: my Macbook Pro and iPhone.

Favorite guilty pleasure? We don’t have a TV - but every now and then when my husband isn’t home and the kids are sleeping, I like to go online and watch a little “TV.”

What is the best part about working for KC? Helping others learn more about cloth diapers and troubleshooting problems; especially when someone is ready to throw in the towel.

Tell me one thing you want everyone to know about you.
I’m a bit obsessive!

What inspires you? Learning. It’s wonderful to be able to learn something new every day - whether it’s a new fact, how to do something, or discovering something more about my children, hubby, or myself.

FuzziBunz again is leading the charge in promoting eco-friendly cloth diapers. In the Sundance Channel's hit show, "Big Ideas for a Small Planet," FuzziBunz cloth diapers were featured in episode 13, titled, "Babies." The show aired on October 27, 2009 and featured an interview with FuzziBunz CEO, Tereson Dupuy.

Dupuy was seen showing off the new FuzziBunz Eco Diaper (under current development), which is made from 100% sustainable fibers. She says all the materials in the new diaper are derived from vegetable, corn, and soy fibers. "This means the whole diaper is compostable," says Dupuy as she shows off how to diaper a baby in her patented diapers.

Other leading green baby companies featured in the episode included Liane Weintraub and Shannan Swanson of Tasty Baby, journalist Katrina Heron, Simran Sethi, author of "Raising Baby Green" Dr. Alan Greene, model/entrepreneur Cindy Crawford, and Paige Goldberg Tomach and Soleil Moon Frye of Little Seed.

You can see a clip from the segment online at http://link.brightcove.com/services/player/bcpid33238258001?bclid=30264474001&bctid=30959152001 or read more about the segment at http://www.prweb.com/releases/2009/10/prweb2923244.htm.
