Inventor of GroBaby, Kim Ormsby, featured in Redbook

I have been cloth diapering my son for 8 months now. It took a lot of convincing to get my husband on board, but after several months we finally took the plunge. I wanted so badly to stay home with my boy, and we knew cloth diapers were a great way to save money.

After a lot of research, I bought the Kelly's Closet Exclusive Gro Baby Complete Diapering Kit. I figured I should trust Kelly’s judgment when making my first purchase. The kit included everything I thought I would need.

My fluffy mail arrived and I was super excited to see all of the Gro Baby inserts, shells, boosters, wet bag and diaper pail liner. I couldn't wait to get them on my baby's cute tooshie!

At first sight I thought they looked so huge on him. His little baby 6 month jeans no longer fit him, and he couldn't roll over onto his tummy because (I assumed) they were too bulky. I felt bad for him. Strike one.

I pressed on. I had quit my job and was staying home full time and looked forward to being able to cloth diaper "correctly." I just couldn't figure out why my little boy was constantly wetting himself. Every 2-3 hours or so I would find his tummy all wet. Strike two.

My good friend emailed the makers of Gro Baby and told them about my problem. They told us that the inserts would need to be "prepped" for much longer than I had originally thought. When I first got them in the mail I washed them and dried them four times and thought that would be enough. No, no, no…these babies need up to 10 full wash/dry cycles before they are fully prepped. So I worked on them…and WHOLLA! No more wetness!

After about 3 months of cloth diapering I found out I was expecting again. My son was 8 months old at the time and I just couldn't believe it! The morning sickness brought an interesting perspective to the stinky smell that also accompanied my son's new found diet of solid foods. That's when I really began to actually hate cloth diapering. I didn't own a diaper sprayer so I used an old rubber spatula to literally scoop the poop out of the diapers into the potty. It was disgusting! Strike three.

I cried and gagged every day for two weeks before my husband finally intervened and told me that I HAD to take a break from the cloth. I was so very relieved! However, deep inside I felt like a real failure because I had wanted it to work out so badly. I knew that cloth diapering was the right thing to do, but I just didn't want to deal with the hassle.

About a month later someone from Kelly's Closet asked me if I would help them out with a survey and in exchange I would get a gift certificate toward a purchase at their online store. Of course I said yes. With the gift I purchased a bumGenius diaper sprayer.

The diaper sprayer has been a real home run! I pulled out all of the cloth diapers once again and gave it another go. Would you believe that is just what I needed and I have never looked back. For three months now I have really enjoyed my Gro Baby diapers again thanks to the bumGenius diaper sprayer.

My son is now 13 months old and has learned how to maneuver himself in the diapers. I have also learned to buy him baby jeans that are just a size bigger and the diapers don't look bulky to me anymore. We have gotten into a very awesome cloth diapering routine and I am so very happy.

The diaper sprayer has been a real winner for me and has provided a little comic relief too. When my hubby first used the sprayer he didn’t know which way to point it so when he pushed the button he totally gooshed himself in the face with water which surprised him. He also ended up getting poop everywhere because he was so busy trying to figure out how to use the thing.

At least now I really look forward to using cloth diapers on my second baby boy that is due May 31st!

My Diaper Sprayer: A much needed homerun!

Read the full story here...

I knew I would cloth diaper my baby-to-be when I found out I was pregnant again. I had already cloth diapered my daughter at night, when she was potty training at the age of two. We used the bumGenius One Size 3.0 pocket diapers and I felt the bumGenius LOVE the first time I put the diaper on my little one. From that moment on I was a cloth diaper covert!

Although I loved our bumGenius diapers, I knew there were a plethora of other diaper options available. I wanted to try a wide variety of diapers before settling on just one diaper. I did a little research, shopped around and finally bought some prefolds and Dappi covers, more bumGenius, a couple Blueberries and Happy Heinys One Size diapers, as well as a few of the sized Happy Heinys Pocket diapers, a couple Drybees All-in-One’s, and eventually a FuzziBunz diaper too (after my son Ian was born.

After trying them all with much excitement, I quickly realized the Happy Heinys diapers didn’t work for us; they did not fit my son well (although the diapers are definitely adorable and I’ve read lots of positive reviews from other moms). I also discovered, while the all-in-ones are convenient to use, they take forever to dry! I really wanted a diaper that would be quick, easy and convenient (both to use and wash/dry).

The prefolds and Dappi covers are great, once I got the hang of using a Snappi fastener. They provide a nice trim fit under Ian’s summer clothes. Alas, my husband really didn’t like the prefolds and covers! In fact, he said he wouldn’t change these diapers. No way! So I retired the prefolds and cover for our emergency reserve for the occasional day when I just can’t get the diaper laundry done on time. Managing a household with four kids – I’m bound to have a day when laundry doesn’t get done, right?

After much trial and error, I realized I was still very much in love with the bumGenius diapers. Blueberry and FuzziBunz are nice, but they are not the diapers I grab first. I kept wishing we had a few more bumGenius diapers to help stretch the diaper laundry a little further and suddenly my wish came true.

I entered a contest right here on The Cloth Diaper Whisperer blog and I won! I won my very favorite diaper; 2 bumGenius One Size 3.0 pocket diapers! Even better, one of the diapers was my favorite color – Clementine! *Sigh* Does it get any better than that?

Hence I declare my love with bumGenius. They are the most reliable and best fitting diapers for us (at least for now).

How to use a Cloth Diaper Sprayer

Read the full story here...

When you make the decision to use cloth diapers, it can seem very overwhelming. Until now, the daily diapers that your baby wore were an afterthought, and something that didn't take a whole lot of effort. Besides the different brands, there wasn't really a whole lot to learn. With cloth diapers, the options seem staggering. Below you will find some frequently asked questions about purchasing, using, and caring for your cloth diapers.

How many daily diapers do I need?
The answer to this question will depend largely on the age of your baby. For example, newborns use more daily diapers than toddlers. A newborn baby may need to be changed as many as a dozen times per day, especially if you are breastfeeding. Older babies may only require you to change them 4-6 times per day. To determine how many cloth diapers to purchase, decide how often you will want to wash. For example, if you have a newborn, and only want to wash twice a week, three or four dozen diapers are recommended.

What type of cloth diaper is best for me?
There are four main types of cloth diapers. A prefold diaper is the old fashioned type that needs to be folded and pinned. These require a separate waterproof cover. This type of diaper is best for those on a budget, being the most affordable. A fitted diaper is shaped like disposables, with elastic and the legs and waist. These also need a separate waterproof cover. These types of daily diapers are best for those who want more leak protection, while still offering affordability and a quick dry time. Pocket diapers include an absorbent insert that fits into an outer waterproof shell. These diapers are best for those that want the convenience of an all-in-one design, without sacrificing customized absorption. Finally, an AIO diaper is built just like a disposable, but you can wash it after each use. Absorbent layers are sewn in, or attach with snaps. This type is best for when changing daily diapers is shared with dads, sitters or daycare workers.
How do I wash my daily diapers?
It is very easy to wash cloth diapers. While many parents still rinse and soak their cloth diapers, it's not always necessary. Solid waste can be shaken into the toilet and the diaper placed in the pail until wash day. Daily diapers should be washed in hot water, using a detergent like Rockin' Green Cloth Diaper Detergent. Use a double rinse cycle if it is available on your machine. For stains, the best remedy for washing your daily diapers is to hang your cloth diapers outside, on a sunny day.
