One of our popular selling brands of diapers, Gro Baby™ (made by The Natural Baby Co.) recently announced that it was awarded the Parent Tested, Parent Approved (PTPA) Media Award!

This award was not only given to the Gro Baby One Size Diapering System, but also to the company’s shells, soaker pads and boosters. The PTPA Media Awards honor products only after they are vigorously tested by parents. Only products that pass muster are given the PTPA award.

Gro Baby has also announced their Gro Baby BioSoakers are officially U.S. Patent Pending. BioSoakers are disposable pads that line your baby’s cloth diapers (the backside of the BioSoaker is sticky, so it stays in place inside your diaper’s shell). Gro Baby BioSoakers are biodegradable, compostable, plastic and chlorine free... and now, patent-pending!

Let your little grow with Grow Baby!

Gro Baby: Parent Tested, Parent Approved!

This is what my brother asked me within minutes of meeting my then-2-month-old baby Oskar over the holidays. My husband and I, baby in tow, made the eight-hour trek by car (typically five hours, but baby adds three) specifically to introduce our new bundle to my family. The highlight of this visit was that Oskar would have the opportunity to meet my brother's baby -- Oskar's cousin -- for the first time, along with a host of tittering aunts and fawning uncles and fussing grandparents. We arrived and made the whirlwind of introductions, barely surviving the onslaught of camera flashbulbs that went off when the babies held hands upon meeting. Then, not long after,

"Why does your baby look like a Who?"

"What?" I asked.

"A Who," my brother replied.

"A which?"

"A Who. You know, from Dr. Seuss?" he clarified.

"Oh," I said. "As in, Horton Hears a..."

"A Who." My brother pointed at my baby's butt.

I looked at Oskar and realized what my brother was trying to say in his typically colorful way. Oskar did look somewhat like a Who, one of the tiny, cheerful, and vaguely pear-shaped inhabitants of Whoville, with his one-piece romper stretched over his little body and his especially rotund bottom. That's because Oskar was sporting our pocket diaper of choice, a Smartipants, double-stuffed for the long car ride, and was looking extra-fluffy that evening.

Since he was about a month old, Oskar has been in cloth. We never planned on cloth; it never even occurred to us. We figured we would have enough on our plates with a whole new person living in our house, leaving a trail of soiled laundry in his wake. But a few things happened right after Oskar was born. We became tired of the constant trips to the baby store for diapers and wipes, just in the few weeks our baby lived in disposables.

We were appalled by the sheer volume of garbage we were tossing into our trash can several times a day -- made even more embarrassing by the fact we were tossing said garbage into the can directly next to the recycling bin we proudly frequent, the one right behind our hybrid car. We educated ourselves and I spent lots of time over at educated; I spent lots of time on Kim’s website, Dirty Diaper Laundry.

I was shocked at how different cloth diapers are from how I'd imagined (in other words, they didn't necessarily involve giant safety pins and a backbreaking laundry routine). We became sentimental; how could we possibly have been prepared for just how much we could love this new little person, for just how fervently we would want to give him the very best we could?

And so I explained to my brother that Oskar looked like a Who that night -- and in fact always looked like a Who -- because he wore cloth diapers. I waited for the standard response.

"Poop? In your washing machine?" He raised an eyebrow.

And, as I always do, I resisted the urge to reply, "Chemicals? Against your baby's skin?" or "Trash the planet your baby will inherit?"

Instead, I simply smiled and said, "You bet."

bumGenius were the very first diapers I bought and put on my daughter. I purchased them because they seemed like an easy transition from disposables, their performance had rave reviews and the design, style and colors were adorable. After seven months of using them they still hit each of these points and have impressed me with even more outstanding qualities. Since that first purchase I have been on a quest for the perfect diaper for our family. I am always anxious to try the new design, fabric or brand in search of the diaper that will make me abandon all others. In truth, that diaper might already be in my stash and I just cannot give up the thrill of the hunt! If I could no longer justify buying and trying the latest and greatest, here’s why I could be very happy sticking with only bumGenius One Size diapers:

Performance: These diapers are the gold standard, the old faithful in my cloth diapering world. I’ve never had a leak with bumGenius unless it was complete user error on my behalf. I stuff them with the basic micro-terry insert and they are good to go. Double stuff with a hemp insert and the micro-terry insert and they are “bulletproof” for overnight.

The inner liner keeps the skin so dry while the pocketed insert absorbs all of the moisture. The elastic around the legs holds everything in without leaving any painful red marks on my daughter’s chunky legs. Some people have had trouble with the hook and loop (Velcro) closure weakening over time, but I haven’t had any issues with that thus far. Furthermore, the hook and loop is completely replaceable if it becomes a problem so I have no worries there.

Style: I love the styling of these diapers. They are adorable. The intensity and depth of the colors is beautiful. However, it is the trimness of the diaper that gets me. These are the easiest diapers to get a pair of pants over and look the trimmest on her. Prints or patterns would put them over the top for me.

Ease of Use: The design of these diapers is the closest I’ve seen to disposables. They go on and fasten just like a disposable, they’re easy to adjust and a breeze to stuff. They are simple to clean and wash up beautifully day after day. The micro-terry insert can be bleached or dried in the sun and brought back to almost original condition. To this day not one of my bumGenius diapers have stained.

Each diaper in my stash has one or two qualities in which they might be superior to the others. One might be softer inside, one might have a prettier exterior, one is super-absorbent, one is trimmer than the others. For me, though, the diaper that hits the mark most consistently is the bumGenius. They hold the largest majority in my stash and are usually the diaper I turn to most when getting my daughter dressed for the day.

Does this mean that my quest for the perfect diaper has ended? Maybe, but I’ll never admit it outright. What fun would that be?

Kushies Baby designs, manufactures and markets an innovative collection of quality baby products and accessories. The company strives for excellence in all areas to ensure its customers receive the highest attainable workmanship and quality. This is exemplified in our continued dedication to service - an uncompromising commitment maintained for more than 50 years.

The company was established as Diana Dolls Wear Ltd. in 1953, by Mary Malinowski of Stoney Creek, Ontario. Founded as a small "cottage-style" industry, it grew to become the only Canadian manufacturer of doll clothing and accessories, with a customer list that included all the major Canadian department stores. In 1987, Mary Malinowski retired and on January 1st 1988, Susan Malinowski and Sam Perez purchased Diana Dolls Wear Ltd. assets.

With a seasonal product line focused on Christmas, Diana Dolls Wear Ltd. naturally began to look for additional markets possibilities for the company to expand. The decision was made to concentrate efforts on the infant children's market, with the initial product to be a re-useable form-fitted cloth diaper. The internationally trademarked name Kooshies was created for the new product line. As President, Sam Perez, explained, "It was a unique name easily pronounced in many languages, enabling the product to be marketed worldwide under one name."

After designing the revolutionary 100 per cent cotton, reusable diaper, Kooshies undertook a year of extensive testing and refinements, and went on to patent the Kooshies diaper.

Kooshies was awarded the privilege of displaying the "Ecologo" of the Canadian Ministry of the Environment on their patented cloth diapers and have received numerous awards and "Best Buy" rankings for their products. Sam Perez recalls, "Timing was an extremely important factor. In the late 1980s there was a new and growing awareness in Canada concerning environmental issues, and Kooshies offered a quality, environmentally - friendly product at the right time".

The Canadian public also responded to the "Kooshies' washable diaper with an overwhelming positive response as Kooshies offered a product better for the environment, a product that made diapering convenient for parents and healthy for the baby.

In just over a year, Kooshies became the industry leader in Canada, with sales exceeding initial projections tenfold. Their market was also expanding into the United States at this time. Since 1990 Kooshies has grown to become a market leader in more than 35 countries around the world.

State-of-the-art manufacturing equipment and meticulous inspection standards for the expanding Kooshies product line, which currently encompasses over 350 baby products, ensures the continuation of the company's high quality standards.

The year 2003 has been notable for Kooshies. When Sam took over the company in 1988, the name was spelled "KOOSHIES". This name had been successfully registered with a worldwide trademark. However, there was opposition from a company registered in the United States and over a ten-year period, without any real progress, the parties finally reached a settlement early 2003. Sam realized the solution would be to change the spelling. This year the corporate logo, labels and packaging have been changed to "KUSHIES".

Today, Kushies is located in a huge, beautiful facility in Stoney Creek, Ontario - less than an hour's drive outside of Toronto. All of our corporate and manufacturing personnel are housed under one roof, resulting in increased efficiency. Sam reflects that, 2003 has been a big year for us. From educational toys to clothing, Kushies covers an entire range of consumer products. "We have a lot in the works and a lot on the go," boasts Sam."It's an exciting place to be".

Looking to the future, Perez emphasizes "Kushies will have an increasingly strong presence in the baby products industry with products that are complimentary to each other. Our commitment to quality and customer service will allow Kushies to continue to make a change for the better."

Occupation: Stay at Home Mama!

What is one cloth diapering tip you wish you had gotten at the very start? To keep it simple! I bombarded myself with a million different diaper types and I was so overwhelmed with everything. I should have stuck to the 1-2 kinds I liked the best. That is what I do now and it’s so much simpler.

What baby product could you not live without? When Tommy was a newborn, my two lifesavers were Gripe Water and this Tummy Band that I warmed up and wrapped around Tommy’s tummy to help colic. Nowadays it’s our wet bag. We use these instead of a diaper bag when taking short trips and they’re so great. I just throw a diaper, a burp rag, a bottle, and a changing pad in one and we’re good to go!

What is your parenting style?I’d say we’re a mix of mainstream and attachment parenting. We do the typical crunchy stuff like delayed vaccines, cloth diapering, co-sleeping, breastfeeding, and baby wearing, but we also don’t go crazy if the television is on a little too long or Tommy gets a little bit of sugar before he’s two. We like to do what feels right for us.

What is the cutest thing your baby does?I love his laughs. When I’m holding him and something makes him laugh he buries his face into my chest and lets out the most adorable giggle. It makes me melt!

What is the one cloth diapering tip you would tell a new mom? Don’t make yourself crazy. Pick a couple of brands that really interest you and get enough to last for a day or two. Then once you find your favorite, invest in a larger stash. The most popular brand or fit may or may not be the one that works best for your family.

What are your TOP 5 favorite websites? Diaperswappers.com, TheClothDiaper Whisperer.com, OxygenMag.net, Amazon.com, and MamaNotes.com.

What is your favorite thing about being a mom? When you wake up in the middle of the night and roll over just to see your baby sleeping so peacefully. Knowing that this precious person is here because of me just fills my heart and makes me look forward to each day I have with him.
