Cruising with Cloth Diapers

Just after my daughter’s first birthday we went on a cruise to Haiti.  Before leaving, I was nervous about using our cloth diapers because I wasn’t sure how we would wash them, if the smell of the dirty ones would stink up the tiny room we’d be living in, or if we would have space in our luggage for all those bulky diapers.  Since my daughter has a sensitive bum I didn’t really want to use disposable diapers on the trip, so I decided I would find a way to make cloth work.  Most of our stash is pockets and all in ones, but we had a few covers and I remembered people posting on Facebook that flour sack towels make great flat diapers.   A quick trip to the store and an order on Kelly’s Closet for a snappi and a few more diaper covers and we had our cruise diaper stash! The great thing about traveling with flats and covers is that they don’t take up too mush space.  You can roll the flats up and since you can reuse covers if they’re not poopy, you don’t need as many as you would other style diapers. The other great thing about them is that they are easy to hand wash and they dry quickly.  The cruise line did have a laundry service, but they charged per item.  I …

10 Ways to Use a Geffen Fladdle

What is a “Fladdle?” A Fladdle is a large (approx 30″x30″), single layer piece of fabric that can be used in a variety of ways with your baby. The Geffen Baby Fladdle is ultra soft combed 60% hemp and 40% organic cotton fleece. Here are just a few uses for the Fladdle that I’ve found, the possibilities are endless! As a flat diaper! The fleecy side is very soft against baby’s skin. It works perfectly pad folded and laying inside a cover and is also large enough to use with more creative folds and pinned. It is super absorbent, while staying surprisingly trim. (Photos show inside a Rumparooz One Size cover and alongside a Small, Geffen fleece prefold.) As a swaddle blanket. I can still swaddle my 10 pound, 21.5in baby with the Fladdle. As a burp cloth. I prefer to fold the Fladdle in half and drape over my shoulder for good coverage while holding and burping my little guy.   For tummy time. During tummy time I fold the Fladdle into a square and place under my baby to catch spit up. It also works well in this same way while under his head when I lay him down after a feeding. As a nursing cover. Since it is so absorbent it is perfect to use while nursing for extra coverage when wanted and to catch milk. As …

Everything Will Be OK: A Beginner’s Guide to Hand washing

When I first started cloth diapering I did all the research for washing and drying.  You think it’s a science (when in actuality it’s really supposed to simple) and you pick out the right detergent, figure out a routine and call it good.  The first time someone asked if I had ever hand-washed my diapers I thought they were absolutely insane, then Dirty Diaper Laundry’s Flats and Hand-washing challenge started.  I decided to join due to wanting to learn a new skill, because you can wash your clothes this way too!  I got all my “equipment” and was off.  The first couple of days, my diapers didn’t get very clean.  But I tweaked everything to where I could rinse, wash, and ring out the diapers and they were squeaky clean. Also back in July/August, our water was down to a trickle due to main problems in our town.  So rather than dealing with a washing machine that took over 3 hours to fill (it was that bad) I hand washed the diapers.  I was so thankful of the new skill I had and knew I didn’t have to worry about situations like that. Here’s what I used to help me hand wash: 5 Gallon Bucket and lid (hole drilled in the top for the plunger handle to get it through). Toilet Plunger The best thing to do first is drill …
