What is your current cloth diaper situation?

Okay. So this is kinda the post I’ve been meaning to write forever, but it is also just me getting thoughts to the page. We have cloth diapered both girls from the beginning minus the first day or so in sposies for the meconium. AppleBlossom started in Tiny gDiapers with Gerber double thick prefolds in them. The were folded in half and then again into thirds. It was a last minute run to the store fix right after she was born. We soon moved to Bummis Small Super Whisper Wrap Covers (at that time only available in prints with hook & loop). We used the Bummis Infant Prefolds with them. It was great, but big on her, but we got by. I also had some size 1 Kissaluvs Fitted diapers as well as one Newborn Woollybums that I loved! Later we moved on to FuzziBunz Small Pocket Diapers and then. . .

Newborn Diapers

In January last year (2010) I wrote a post about newborn diapers (that I knew of at the time) and since then many more designs are available. But for starters here’s a refresher… and then at the bottom of the post – new excitement! So these are my thoughts from several months ago that I shared with Kim Graham-Nye, co-owner of gDiapers that now I get to share with you with a couple edits to make it current (September 11th, 2009): LOOK @ that itty bitty jaundiced AppleBlossom! Off the top of my head, I can tell you that the Tiny g’s have been my husband’s favorite diaper so far out of everything that we used. In his (I forgot how this diaper works) moments he sometimes even fastened it in front instead of back, and he thought it fit better that way. We are both absolutely in love with. . .

Tots Bots Easy Fit Diaper from Bummis

It’s no secret I love Bummis. I really really really love Bummis and want them to come out with covers with snaps in prints! But that’s another story… Bummis has partnered with a Scottish company (Tot Bots) to distribute some of their diapers including fitted diapers and a new AIO. Easy Fit Diaper A very different kind of pocket diaper! The innovative design of this diaper features a non messy stuff – easier than a pocket system. No fiddling around – a swift stuff to get the liner in is all you need… And – no more losing liners in the laundry! This super thirsty liner is actually attached to the diaper, making the Easy Fit a remarkable all-in-one diaper with many of the benefits of a two piece system – fast drying and easy to clean. Its innovative design provides a very versatile absorption – the attached liner can. . .

@Bummis Super Star Print Covers (limited edition Super Whisper Wrap) #clothdiapers

In case you have not heard me say it before. I love Bummis. I love everything there is about Bummis.  In detail here, I explain what all I love about the Bummis prefold and cover cloth diapering system. Today I just want to tell you, eight months later I still love Bummis.  The Super Whisper Wraps are my favorite. The Super Brite Wraps are nice, but they just aren’t quite the same to me. The prints available in the SWW are so much more exciting and I prefer the inner cover layer over the wipe-able water proof material. These covers are a much better fit than the others I have tried, such as Thirsties or Polar Babies (not to be confused with Polar Bummis which I have no personal experience with). Bummis Super Whisper Wrap This is a state of the art Aplix-closing cover made from a super resistant waterproof. . .

Product Review: Bummis #clothdiapers

Soon after finding out that we were pregnant with our AppleBlossom we knew that we were going to cloth diaper and so I went to my SisterL for advice. As you can read back on this post, she strongly prefers a Bummis system to cloth diapering. *Thanks to Shirley from Bummis, I was able to review an Infant sized Bummis Organic Cloth Diaper Kit* and I’m sold! This is my preference for cloth diapering pretty much for all the time. In the weeks to come I’ll fill you in on other methods I also use and enjoy. But I love Bummis brand! First off, what did I get in the kit? The Infant size contains: • 24 infant size Organic Cotton Prefold diapers (4 x 8 x 4 layers thick) • 4 Super Whisper Wraps – small • 2 Super Brites – small • 3 rolls Bio-Soft liners – small. . .

#ClothDiapers Education

When I first found out that I was pregnant, I knew that I was going to cloth diaper full time. It was about two or three days after finding out that I was pregnant that I started my cloth diaper (CD) research and then spent the next 35 weeks continuing it. *grin* I have been thinking over and preparing my mind to write up some great educational CD posts about my experiences and opinions of various products, but apparently I am not fast enough! My AppleBlossom is one month old today, and we have three weeks of CD experience under our belt, but I have a friend begging with questions, and they must be answered ASAP to make her a CD convert with her 3 mo old… so here is the beginning of my unorganized thoughts… There are four main types of CD:PF (prefolds) with coverspocket diapersAIO (all-in-one)fitted diapers with. . .

Cloth Diapers: A Guest Post and Introduction to CD Bummis

As I mentioned previously in a post, SisterL is one of my main influences for wanting to go cloth with diapering future with my baby girl (now blogging affectionately named AppleBlossom). I asked her advice on brands and types and the first thing out of her mouth was “Bummis“. She said if I buy anything, I should definitely invest there. So I asked her to be a little more detailed for my readers here so that I could understand and help explain why Bummis is a fabulous choice for CD. I started cloth diapering DD1 (second child) at 3 months with the medium sampler kit from Green Mountain Diapers (before I knew of www.JuliesStuff.com or www.NaturalBabies.com–Karen at GMD still has great things and her guide is great to pass on to new mamas but shipping was always a lot so items had to be on sale to entice me). It. . .
