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 …

I tend to grab a pocket diaper, usually a bumGenius 3.0 or Blueberry first thing in the morning if Brendan, my 17 month old, hasn’t messed his overnight diaper.

If he’s already done his big messy diaper for the day, I will move right on to my current favorite diaper…my Kiwi Pie Fitteds. I love the cute patterns, and the terrific fit they give me on my skinny little man. Since he is a rather heavy wetter, I usually double up the diaper with an additional insert between the diaper and the cover. Right now I have Kissaluvs Diaper Doublers, bumGenius Stay Dry Diaper Doublers, and Thirsties Fab Doublers, but I’m anxious to add some bamboo doublers to my stash due to their incredible absorbency. I finish up the diaper change with a waterproof cover, my current favorite being Thirsties and Wonder Wraps. My only wish is that they came in snaps – my little guy has become quite good at unhooking the Velcro – even when it’s concealed underneath his clothing! As soon as I can add more to my …
