Fluff Friday 159 WINNER!

Read the full story here...

I remember lunch with a friend from high school. We were ‘all grown up’ and had our first children, who are almost the exact same age. We hadn’t seen each other in years. I remember going to the restroom with her so we could each change our kiddos before getting back on the road. She changed her little girl and it was a CLOTH diaper. I remember what I thought…"FREAK". I didn’t think she was crazy, I KNEW it.

Fast-forward six months and my son started suffering from a re-occurring rash that would. not. go. away. We were using THE major disposable brand…top notch for my kiddo, right? WRONG. His rash got so bad, the skin peeled away. I remember crying because he was crying. It hurt him so much when I changed him. But I slathered him up with some more Desitin and fastened on another disposable, thinking it would surely clear up like the doctor said. I was clueless. The doctor was baffled. Then I caught wind of the ‘major disposable diaper company’ in the news…other folks were having burn-like rashes…and it CLICKED. I remember thinking, “it’s the diaper”... switching to different disposible brands, and feeling like I failed.

Things are much different now. I’m a ‘freak’. I’m happy to declare that we are full-time cloth-diapering folks. I have a mystical diaper sprayer hanging on the side of my toilet. I’m talking tea tree oil. I know the difference between flats, pre-folds, AIO’s, and pockets. I ENJOY doing diaper laundry. I discovered CJ’s BUTTer (love it). And, I’m completely bewildered that I didn’t ‘get it’ in time for my first son…in fact, my second son was a year old when we finally went ‘all in’ with a full cloth stash. But more importantly, I realized that I just didn’t have all the facts before, and I simply shouldn’t have knocked it before I tried it.

Here’s the kicker. My husband was NOT on board. He’s a guy who would be happy to pay $2,000 over the course of diapering years to NOT think of poopy in his washer. He’s a toughie and an engineer-analytical-type. He picked apart ALL my facts and figures on whether or not switching to cloth would save us money. But when it came down to it, you can’t argue with the health of our little guys. He remembers the rash. So, we compromised. He will change cloth diapers, if I will spray them out and wash the loads. I’ve caught him wringing them out and hanging them to dry, so he’s getting into it (don’t tell him I said so). This week, I’m taking the plunge and adding cloth wipes to the mix. I really want to cut out as much exposure to chemicals I can’t pronounce as possible. I’m going to be really ‘crunchy’ here, and make my own wipes solution (water, olive oil, Burt’s Bees baby wash, drop of tea tree oil – EASY). I even started making my own diaper detergent on the CHEAP.

If being a cloth diaper ‘freak’ means doing everything I possibly can to care for my babies, then I’m ALL IN. Late, but I’m in.

Ariel Eldridge is a former art teacher-turned-stay-at-home-momma of two boys, 4 years and 16 mos, living in rural Indiana. “Crunchy” is no longer a meanie term at her house, because it turns out that natural is pretty stinkin’ cool.

12 Days of Diapers

Read the full story here...

I recently purchased a large stash of Happy Heinys for my son (they have quickly become my favorite brand as they run a bit bigger than other one size pockets, which is great as my son is big for his age!). Before purchasing them, I was looking at Kim's cloth diaper reviews the brand on Dirty Diaper Laundry. One thing that she mentioned is that the fleece used in Happy Heinys has a tendency to get a little rough the longer you use them. She recommended using either a cloth diaper safe fabric softener or wool dryer balls. I thought I'd give wool dryer balls a try as I had been hearing lots of good things about them (not only to them help to soften the diaper fabric, but they also help diapers dry faster when in the dryer!).

I decided to try out being crafty and making my own, since they seemed easy enough to make. I used the guide on the Goodmama Blog. It is SUPER easy to follow. I went to my local craft store and bought 100% wool yarn and started wrapping. I had the base of 3 wool dryer balls done in under 45 minutes. Honestly, the felting takes the longest of all the steps as you need to wait for your washer and dryer, the rest is quick and super easy to do, even for a very un-crafty person like me!

If you are noticing that the fabric of your diapers are getting a bit rough, I highly recommend going to your local craft store and picking up the supplies to make wool dryer balls. They REALLY help to soften the fabric of your diapers, especially microfleece! I was so impressed with how soft even the oldest Happy Heinys in my stash felt after using wool dryer balls in the dryer with them. It's amazing!

Traci R. Wishes Her Cloth Diapers Would Wash and Stuff Themselves, Do You?

Traci R. lives in Fort Polk, LA and is mom to Kolten (11 months). She is a Labor & Delivery nurse and finds that motherhood has changed the way she treats her patients. Find out what Traci has to say about diapering, motherhood and everything in between:

What is the #1 reason you cloth diaper your baby? I cloth diaper my baby to save money. I didn't know just how much money it would save, but I constantly watch friends buy diapers at the store every week and I can't see myself spending $15 (or more) every trip to the store on wasteful products.

Who has been your biggest cloth diapering supporter/cheerleader? My biggest cheerleader/supporter is (finally) my husband! It took about three months for him to accept cloth diapering. I recently switched to cloth wipes and now he only uses cloth wipes!!! It's amazing! He's come a long way.

What is your favorite diaper and why? My favorite diapers are my Flip covers with organic inserts! Easy to clean, easy to wash, and they absorb a ton! They are by far my favorite nighttime diaper too.

If you had one superhero power, what would it be and why? My super power would be that my diapers would wash and stuff themselves! Lol

Describe your parenting style using three words. Patient. Unconditional. Systematic.

What is one product you absolutely can't live without! I have come to realize how important my diaper pail and Rumparooz pail liner have become in my house. Being a full time working mom, my diaper load can get quite heavy.

How do you think being a mother has changed you? Being a mother has changed my world and perspective on life. It has changed the way I care for my laboring patients and new moms (I'm an RN in Labor & Delivery). It has also made me a better wife. I have so much more patience with everything and it has definitely inspired me to live a greener life (cloth diapers and wipes, homemade baby food, etc.). I am looking forward to my next journey in motherhood (hopefully in 2012)!
