Freetime Love

I have been cloth diapering my son for coming up on two years and in that time, I’ve had the great pleasure of trying many different types of diapers and brands. However, at the end of the day, I continuously find myself reaching for my tried and true diaper, the one that is consistent, flexible, customizable and rarely fails me. To that end, I would like to share this diaper with you and the ‘why’s as why it is our go-to diaper. BumGenius Freetime– the top 10 reasons why it’s amazing: 10. It’s all in one. Easy peasy. Just grab ‘n go. 9. Quick Dry I hang these to dry before bed and when I wake in the morning they are dry and ready to go. 8. One-size So many diapers are one-size so this isn’t unique, but it’s still great. 7. Adjustable The flaps have fold marks on them to adjust where you would like some extra protection, front for boys, middle for girls. Or, you can be like me and simply leave them down the entire time. 6. A-dor-a-ble The colors. The prints. The NEW prints. So many options. 5. Coordinating BabyLegs If you love babylegs, they coordinate so well. If you aren’t a fan, may I recommend the BabyLegs socks. A peek of color out of the top of pants to coordinate with a peek of color …

A Fan of the Freetime

When we decided to cloth diaper, I did a ton of research online to try and figure out what the best combination of diapers to stock up on might be. It seemed that everyone had a different favorite system, so it was suggested that I try a few to see what I liked best. A friend gave us a stack of her old newborn prefolds with Thirsties and Prowraps covers to try out, as well as some small pocket diapers with microfiber inserts. I assumed that I’d like using the pockets the best, because they seemed easy. But to my surprise, I found myself reaching for the prefolds folded into thirds the most at home, saving the pockets for outings. Using the prefolds at home allowed me to put off doing laundry a little longer, which I liked. My boy tends to be the type of baby that HATES to feel wet, even a little, so we were going through quite a lot of diaper changes. Prefolds were a little more economical at the time. However, as my son quickly grew, it became clear that the borrowed diapers would soon be too small, and I’d need to purchase some new ones. I decided that it might be wise to get a few all-in-ones, because I had heard that they’re especially easy to use for caregivers that might not have experienced …

All Freetime, All the Time

Before baby number one was born, I decided that I didn’t want to spend thousands of dollars on disposables, so I informed my husband that cloth diapers were the way to go (for our budget and for the environment, too, of course). I did hours of online research on cloth diapering (I’m a librarian, after all), attended a class at a local retailer to see all of the varieties in person, and took the advice of other CDers (see, I learned the lingo!) to try lots of different kinds before settling on just one. I chose a few to try and added them to my baby registry. And once baby arrived, try them I did – from prefolds to pockets and everything in between. I had never imagined just how much fun it would be to outfit my baby’s bum! I settled on mostly a mix of one-size pockets, a lot of bumGenius 3.0s and 4.0s with a few others (Fuzzibunz, Rumparooz, Kawaii, Thirsties, Charlie Banana) thrown in for good measure (and their cute prints). I was happy with my pockets and liked the flexibility of being able to double-stuff… and even replace all the inserts pretty cheaply when my front-loader did a number on my microfiber (and I hadn’t yet discovered the wonders of Tide). However, when baby number two came along, with potty training for number one still …

Clothaholics Anonymous

Hello there! You look a little lost… Oh, you’re looking for the Mother’s Meeting? I’m so sorry, but they meet here in the Library on Tuesdays. Tonight it is “Clothaholics Anonymous”. What’s that – you’ve never heard of Clothaholics Anonymous? Well, we do tend to be a little shy about our, er, problem; but certainly you’ve met clothaholics before. They look just like your average citizen. Take Molly over there, for instance. Positively glowing, isn’t she! She’s only got a few weeks left before her first little one is due. She jumped on the cloth diapering bandwagon early, just a few days after her first positive pregnancy test. Things really went crazy, though, when she hit the nesting phase. Let’s just say she is now Prepared, with a capital P – who can blame her, though. Those itty bitty dipes are to die for. Her husband realised she had a problem when he came home from work one evening and discovered her in the nursery, practising snappying prefolds on a Cabbage Patch Kid. Then there’s Gloria, in the corner with the knitting project. Gloria started with good old PUL covers, but for her they were a gateway diaper, leading her to the world of wool. She planned to try a pair of wool shorties on her daughter “just one time”, but who can stop once they begin, right? She then …
