Miss Part 1?

Miss Part 2?

Miss Part 3?

Welcome to part 4! Where we talk about one of the most controversial component of the modern cloth diaper- PUL.

Now I want to preface this section by saying that PUL is one of the most expensive components in a cloth diaper. It is also one of the hardest materials to procure- so finding a reputable, reasonably priced PUL is a major undertaking for any diaper manufacturer.

It is also important to know that no PUL is PERFECT. After a little … Read more

Miss Part 1?

Miss Part 2?

Welcome back! Today we are going to talk about the inside part of the diaper. This can be microfiber, cotton, bamboo and hemp just to name a few.

The most common are:

    • Microfiber/Fleece: Lifespan- 2 plus years. Microfiber is a synthetic fiber made up of a blend of polyester and polyamide or nylon.

    Welcome back! In part 2 of our series, I wanted to talk about the life expectancy of elastic.

    But first a little math for you:

    The average cloth diaperer washes every 2.5 days, so a diaper is washed approximately 146 times a year…or 438 times if you use a diaper for birth to potty training.

    That’s a lot of washes!

    Life Span of a Cloth Diaper- Do They Really Last From Birth to Potty Training? Part 1

    When I started in the cloth diaper community nearly 7 years ago, the industry as we know it was in its infancy. Many of the diaper brands that we know and love today where still a few years from hitting the market, while others where just starting to break out of work-at-home status and moved into warehouse-needed-now status.

    9 Tips to Keep TV Time to a Minimum at Home

    Watching TV can be a great way to spend an evening together with your family, especially if the programming is appropriate for everyone and, ideally, a bit educational. It can be a tool to spark conversation and encourage further learning.

    But watching too much can have adverse effects on all of us. It’s more difficult to interact and socialize when the TV is running, which is especially important for growing minds. TV encourages us to stay still and forgo any exercise. It’s an easy trap for kids (and adults!) to … Read more

    5 Tips to Get Your Kids to Help with Chores

    Kids do not like doing chores for the same reason you and I don’t like doing them. Chores are boring, tiring, and sometimes frustrating. Children need to take part in the regular tasks of running a household, but it is often difficult to get them moving. In fact, getting kids to do chores is one of the most common household arguments. The sooner you can make chores a part of your regular routine, the easier time you’ll have getting them to pitch in as they get older. Use these five … Read more

    5 Baby Sleep Myths Busted

    Every parent has their theories and beliefs about sleeping; their tricks and tips. I cringe every time I read advice from fellow moms when they’re asked sleep-related questions. Of course, it’s not that the advise givers are purposefully giving out bad information, but the information is bad. Most likely they themselves have been given this terrible advice, and they’re inadvertently passing it along. As a certified child sleep consultant, I’ve heard it all, and I’m here to debunk some myths that you may have encountered so we can break this Read more
