6 Months In: Newbie No More! As my son’s first birthday approaches, I find it so hard to believe that I am not so new at this baby thing anymore. I still feel like a new mom, but once in a while I find myself in the position to actually offer advice instead of just seeking it out all the time!

The same holds true for my cloth diapering experience. In the beginning, all I did was ask questions! I’m still asking, but I think I just might have a few valuable tidbits to offer, too! So, without further adieu, here are the top 5 cloth diapering challenges I faced, and how I overcame them!

What to choose? I’m a big believer in not putting all your fluffy eggs in one basket. You might be tempted to drop a bunch of cash on a few dozen of one style or brand, but I wouldn’t recommend it. We have everything from Flip covers and Fuzzibunz to prefolds and fun Etsy finds. Each one serves a different purpose: some are better for overnight, some are easier for Gram to use, and some are easier to use while traveling. Besides, with all the super cute options out there, how could you pick just one?

How to store them? A few months in, diapers started taking over my home. I had laundry baskets and piles of diapers all over (and I don’t even have that many diapers.) My house is really, really small, so I knew I needed to get organized, and fast. So I invested $15 in a canvas shoe rack. Works like a charm! As for the dirty ones, no wet buckets here. I just flush whatever solids I can, and throw them into a small trash pail with a pop up lid lined with a garbage bag (I’d love a real pail liner, though.)

Why do my clean diapers STINK!?! Oh, the stinkies. I know them well. I really didn’t bargain for a 6-month science experiment when I began CD, and I’ve been tempted to throw in the towel several times. And then I found out that throwing in a towel might be just the ticket for fresher smelling dipes. The weight of an extra towel can trick your washer into adding more water, and water is SO key in the laundering process. If you think about it, these are absorbent diapers, so they are just going to suck up all the water in your machine and flop around. A preliminary rinse to get them all nice and saturated can help.

My biggest mistake? Soaking in a bucket. When I soak, I need to do it in a full bathtub, then add a few extra gallons to the washer (my front loader isn’t so easy to trick, so I add the water with a gallon jug.) The other piece to my laundry puzzle was treating the inserts and shells/covers differently. Sometimes I wash them all together, but I have found that a little borax or oxygenated bleach in the initial wash cycle once a week works wonders on my inserts. I never use anything but a tiny bit of CD detergent and hot water on the diapers/covers themselves. I baby those as if they were fine lingerie, because I want them to last a long, long time. (For me, that means NO dryer!)

What about yucky stains? Ok, poop is gross. So is a stain left by poop, but I figured I’d deal. But then I saw all my beautiful, soft, pristinely while new dipes, and I was horrified to think of their being all pooped up! Not to worry. A few hours in the sun and I usually can’t even remember which diaper had a stain in the first place because they all look nice and white again! That Ma Nature sure knows what she’s doing.

I’m addicted. Now what do I do? Sorry, can’t help you there. Like I said, I don’t have all the answers yet. (If you’ll excuse me…I’ve gotta go check the mailbox…)

You’ve been here before. It’s 2:00 am. Your baby is crying. You stumble in his room to find him ready for a diaper change, feeding and possibly some dreaded middle-of-the-night-playtime. The lights are out and you want to keep baby in a relaxed sleepy mood but you need light to change his poopy diaper. What do you do? This dilemma is one that could happen for any mom, any where. But we have some suggestions to help:

Add a dimmer to baby’s room. You could put the light on ever so slightly to keep it very dim, but still give enough light so you can change and feed your baby without putting him in a playtime mood.

Carry a nightlight or flashlight. No need to put the lights on full blast – just carry a small nightlight with you that you plug into the wall and presto, instant nighttime light. Some babies will enjoy a nightlight long-term, so you can even try leaving it plugged in all night.

Get a nursing nightlight. I saw this company, Nighty Nite Nursing Light, at a baby tradeshow last year. They make a clip on nightlight than you can attach to your shirt or bra strap and get an instant glowing light that soothes baby and allows you to see so you can get business done. Very clever! And if you must turn on the light…. Do it quickly to change your baby, but then turn it off during feeding. You want your baby to understand that darkness means sleep-time!

Now go back to bed, Mama!

We are very happy to make the new 3g Bumboo Pocket Diaper available to everyone and hope you enjoy it just as much as we do! This new version of our pocket diaper boasts all the benefits of the original Bumboo Pocket Diaper such as: A one size design Super soft fleece leg gussets for air flow Bamboo rayon inner lining Front stuffing pocket And, included hemp JoeyBunz insert.

But, what’s even better about the new 3g Bumboo Pocket is that is has been modified and improved to a stellar degree, and boasts new features like:
  • A unique newborn snap closure for a snug and comfortable fit on the smallest babies
  • Wider pocket for easier stuffing
  • Thinner wings to accommodate those adorable, chunky baby thighs
  • Trimmer design for a more comfortable fit and chic look

All of our colors were chosen by consumers, and there are NO pastels. The new colors are Meadow (green), Poppy (red), Azure (blue), and White w/multicolored snaps.

Along with the 3g Bumboo Pocket launch we want to “Make cloth diapers go VIRAL!” and we are releasing 4 short comedic videos to help spread the word. We are using a fun and edgy approach to promote our new 3g Bumboo Pocket Diaper and cloth diapers in general to the public mainstream. In addition to our viral videos we will also introduce a BabyKicks computer game which allows consumers to accrue points towards discounts and gift certificates on our products!

We have even designed a whole new website dedicated to the 3g Bumboo Pocket and our signature Organic Fitted cloth diapers. The new site is full of fun animations and useful information, and was even specifically designed to be “daddy friendly”.

As you can see, we have a lot of exciting ideas in store to accompany the release of our new diaper.At BabyKicks, we are always looking for new ways to excel our products and make them more comfortable, convenient, and dependable for parents. We know that every child is unique and we believe that each and every one deserves unique pampering. This is why our new 3g Bumboo Pocket Diaper is natural and organic, and available at an exceptional value of only $18.50 each. We are very excited about this new phase of BabyKicks and we hope you will help us spread the word about cloth diapers as well as the new 3g Bumboo Pocket Diaper!

And it is (drum roll please)…. Chocolate Brown! This version of our 3g Bumboo Pocket will also be available with a variety of different colored snaps including orange, pink, green, and brown! We hope you enjoy our new 3g Bumboo Pocket Diaper, no matter which color you choose, and we look forward to continuously helping make babies healthy and happy!Sincerely, Your BabyKicks Team
