Fabric Focus: Hemp and Cloth Diapers

As you know hemp has been widely used in cloth diapers for a number of years. Yes- I know just mentioning the word “hemp” might get some of you to grin! It is a pure fact that hemp comes from the same family as marijuana- the Cannabis genus. From a quick look hemp looks very similar to marijuana however hemp contains no THC which is the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. Hemp fibers are 3-4 times stronger than cotton fibers and it grows with very little care and usually no pesticides need to be used because the plant has no known insect enemies. Hemp is also much more absorbent that cotton. Due to USA regulations hemp is not allowed to be grown legally in the states. This is why the cost of hemp products, including diapers that contain hemp, are relatively much higher in cost than a traditional cotton diaper. Hemp is usually found in the following type of fabric forms: Hemp fleece-widely used in cloth diapers.Hemp knit jersey-which is comparable to the feel of regular cotton t-shirts.Hemp french terry-usually a hemp and organic cotton blendHemp stretch-knit terry-a blend of hemp and Lycra- very absorbent and used in some brands of cloth diapers What you need to know about hemp and cloth diapers: If you purchase a diaper or diaper accessory product (like BabyKicks Hemparoo Joey Bunz) keep in the mind …

Product Focus: Baby Beehinds

* Brief intro about Baby Beehinds and the inventor Baby BeeHinds was established in early 2004, by Davina, who still runs this energetic and customer focused company! Back in the early days, Davina had no plans to go in to business…rather, she simply liked sewing nappies for her new baby girl. Eventually her baby had far too many nappies so Davina started sewing for friends, and then at their prompting, launched publicly with some auctions on ebay. In those days, the cloth nappy market in Australia was ultra ultra new…there were not many modern cloth nappy options at all available and so the public immediately latched on to Baby BeeHinds and all of a sudden Davina’s fun little hobby turned in to a very busy home business! Eventually, the demand got too great and so after much thought, Davina investigated outsourcing production, and with ethics in mind, found a fantastic factory to produce the qantities required with the quality she had in mind. Since this time, Baby BeeHinds has grown exponentially, branching in to wholesale, party plan and retail markets. Still, the fundamental values of the company remain- that is quality, excellent customer service, and ethical manufacturing standards. Baby BeeHinds also likes to support those who are disadvantaged, with charitable contributions made financially and some 2500-3000 nappies donated thus far to orphanages in Africa. * Short description of your products, …

Small but mighty cloth diaper stash

I began my fun journey into cloth diapering by purchasing three different brands of diapers to try before buying more. I purchased one BumGenius 3.0, one Happy Heiny One-Size, and a Fuzzi Bunz. From my research, I knew I wanted to start with pocket diapers and that one-size diapers would be the most economical. After testing these three diapers for almost a month, I then ordered 12 Bumgenius 3.0. Recently, I added two Baby Beehinds Bamboo fitteds and a Bummis SuperBrite cover to my stash. This allows me to wash diapers every other day. From our current stash, my favorite diaper is our BG 3.0 in Zinnia. I just find it to be so cute on my daughter. We only have two Zinnia diapers because I wanted most of the others to be gender neutral. Here’s a photo of her wearing it…doesn’t she even look happy? I like the BG 3.0 because they are one-size and the quality on them is great. My least favorite diaper is our Happy Heiny One-Size. I really wanted to like this diaper since it has a snap closure. However, I have had several leaks with it. I think the fit just doesn’t work well for my daughter. My favorite bedtime diapers are the Baby Beehinds Bamboo fitteds with the SuperBrites cover. The Baby Beehinds are exceptionally absorbant and I don’t have a strong pee/amonnia …
