Kelly Wels Changing Diapers Book is a must have for cloth diapering moms!

Review shared by The Cloth Diaper Geek

The inside scoop on what you can expect from Kelly Wels new book!

As a former cloth diaper retailer who seriously admired the virtual cloth diaper empire that Kelly Wels had built, I was eager to read her new book Changing Diapers:  The Hip Moms Guide to Modern Cloth Diapering.  I was excited to learn that someone had stepped up to the bat as an adovate for cloth and had brought to the market a realistic portrayal of cloth diapers and the families who use them.

I am a green mom, probably more of a medium shade of green, but I am certainly on the green spectrum and a cloth diaper lover and advocate myself.  Most people picture a cloth diapering family as a mom and dad all decked out in Birkenstock sandals, growing their own gardens and driving a VW bus.  Truth is, cloth diapers are just as popular with modern, hip and eco-conscious families as they are with the totally crunchy, granola making crowd.  Kelly's book does a great job at really reaching out beyond the stereotypical cloth diapering audience letting new mamas and papas who are considering cloth diapers know that it IS for them too.  You CAN live in a big city, wear high heels, be a haute mommy, or a daddy with a corporate job AND use modern cloth diapers.

Some parts of the Changing Diapers book that I was particularly impressed by are the diagrams and explanations of the different types of diapers and how to use them.  There really are a lot of choices and they can overwhelm cloth diapering newbies to the point that they become completely turned off and decide cloth is just too complicated for them.  With Kelly's book, readers can see the styles as well as read about them.
I also love the information about what's really in disposable diapers.  Families do need to know about all the chemicals and toxins found in disposables and Kelly really did her homework.  She's got everything you should know about disposables right there in one easy to read chapter.

The best part, well I am a little partial because I am a mother of twins, was the chapter on cloth diapering multiples and special needs children.  Kelly really gives families practical advice on how many you'll need, what styles and sizes are best and what you can expect, no guesswork required.  She also points out some great tips for what to buy and how to shop, when you're going to be purchasing cloth diapers in bulk.

Overall, I give Kelly's book Changing Diapers:  The Hip Moms Guide to Cloth Diapering, two thumbs up!  Both in quality and in content, this book is a must-have for any cloth diapering mama or papa who like to advocate cloth.  You can simply lend it out as needed, or purchase a copy for friends who are expecting or considering switching to cloth.  This would be the ideal baby shower gift.  In fact, after reading Kelly's book I honestly think that this book should be read BEFORE you turn to the internet for your cloth diaper research or shopping.  After you read it you'll know exactly where to look and what to buy, within no time Kelly will have made a cloth diaper believer out of you!

Coming soon to a Knickernappies Retailer near you!  In October you can expect to find Kelly's book at many of your favorite cloth diaper retailers, keep your eyes out for it!

Cloth Diaper Safe Rash Creams, Don't get caught with your diaper down!

Having a cloth diaper safe rash cream is not always a top priority, especially if you have a baby that doesn't get frequent rashes.  But don't get caught with your diaper down! (ha! play on words, get it!?)  Literally though, your little one has a rash, you've got them laid out on the cloth diaper, you reach for the DESITIN and.....Ahhh!  It's then that you realize that you don't even own a cloth diaper safe ointment.

Some new to the world of cloth diapering may not even know that you have to use a cloth diaper safe ointment, but they'll soon find out when they discover the ugly staining and build up that traditional rash cremes leave in your cloth diapers.

So, whether you think you'll need it or not, it's super important to have a cloth diaper friendly rash cream on hand.  Here are a few good suggestions:
  • Magic Stick:  GroVia's Magic Stick is a popular, natural, cloth diaper safe rash cream that comes in a stick, like a chapstick only much larger.  GroVia® Magic Stick’s all natural and organic ingredients and petroleum-free formula is safe to use with cloth or disposable diapers.  MSRP $13.95
  • Eco Sprout Bottom Balm:Soothe your little one's bottom with this all natural balm. Safe for cloth diapers and made with natural oils, you can use this after every diaper change to naturally protect baby's sensitive skin and prevent redness.  Available in a tiny 1 oz size or stick.  MSRP $7.50 & $12.98
  • Mama Rose's Magic Touch Diaper Balm:This wonderfully smelling, non-messy skin and diaper ointment uses a combination of certified organic herbal infusions and pure essential oils, which can help promote the formation of new cells and relieve irritation. Available in various sizes.  MSRP $3.00-$21.00

Going Green to Save Green: Save $2000 or more when you choose cloth diapers!

From the I Love Cloth Diapers Blog

Choosing cloth diapers can save you a ton!  How much green can you feasibly save when you choose to use cloth diapers?  Let's take a quick look at the fluffy figures.

Let's pretend I am going to use prefolds, snappis and one-size covers.  Free Shipping would most likely apply to my order and from birth to potty training I shouldn't need to purchase more than 4 dozen prefolds, 8 covers ad four snappis.

With disposables I am assuming that baby would potty train at age 2.5yrs which is pretty optimistic, but works for the purpose of this comparison.


Cloth Diapers Disposable Diapers
(8) One Size Covers $79.92Approx. .32cents each
(4) Dozen Prefolds $139.20 8per day for 6 months =$467.20
(4) Snappi Fasteners $15.80 6per day for 24 months=$1752.00
Total $234.92 Total $2219.20
Additional Expenses Additional Expenses
Cloth WipesDisposable Wipes
Cloth Diaper SprayerGas to and from Store
Cloth Diaper DetergentSupplies for Disposal (Diaper Genie, etc.)


This simple chart gives both cloth diapers and disposables a realistic comparison.  Yes, you can expect to need more covers or more cloth diaper accessories and Yes, you can expect that your child might not potty train until they're 3 yrs old or might need more than 8 per day from birth through 6 months.

Even with this basic, optimistic look at both diapering options, cloth diapering clearly will save you money over disposables, at least $2000 to be exact!  That's a LOT of green!

Tips for Daddy and Daycare friendly Cloth Diapering!

When starting your cloth diaper journey, there's a lot to soak in.  The information available to you is overwhelming and the different types and styles of cloth diapers all vary in use, from the materials they're made of, how to stuff them, how to fasten them, adjust the rise, etc.

It's easy to feel like using cloth diapers are easy, but we forget that we're the ones who did all the research.  I discovered that cloth diaper fastening, stuffing, and use in general is just not common sense for everyone.

If you want your child's caregiver, daycare, grandparent, daddy or partner to be able to confidently use cloth diapers without you there, you'll have to make it as easy as you can on them.  Here are some tips!
  • Show them!  Give the person who will be changing the cloth diapers a mini demo.  Show them the front, the back, and how to snap the diaper or use aplix.
  • Pre stuff!  If you use pockets, or any diaper for that matter, pre-stuff your inserts into the coordinating diapers.  With fitteds, place the fitted inside the cover so that the caregiver will know what goes with what.  Prefolds?  Opt for the tri-fold and lay it into the cover you'd like used.
  • Less choices!  Perhaps it would be best, especially at first, to leave your child's caregiver with less options.  Leave all the same diaper styles so that they can really get some practice and learn one style at a time.
  • Dirty Diapers!  Spraying diapers might be out of the question depending on who's watching your child and where.  You'll need to explain the importance of a wetbag and how to store the dirty cloth diapers for you until you return.  You DO NOT want to come back and find that some of your expensive cloth diapers have inadvertently been thrown away with the trash!
With any caregiver, especially one who's not used cloth diapers recently, you'll want to give them small doses of exposure.  You might ultimately want them to use prefolds, covers and cloth wipes, but it's best to take baby-steps and not overwhelm them with your passion for cloth.  Ease them into it and when you feel they're on board the cloth diaper train, then try adding new diapers, techniques and accessories like cloth wipes, liners and diaper sprayers.

When's the last time you looked for a local cloth diapers retailer?

Did you know that Knickernappies and other cloth diaper manufacturers are adding new retailers each and every day?  Shopping online is great, but how awesome would it be to find out you had a local boutique that carries cloth diapers or a work-at-home-mama in your area that delivers?

It's always good to check your local retailer listings approximately once per month.  Don't just search and then write it off, thinking you'll never get to shop for cloth diapers in person.

At Knickernappies we have retailers all over the world, make sure you stop by the Knickernappies Store Locator today and see if one just may have popped up near you!

Have a local retailer but they don't carry Knickernappies?  Tell them about us!

Knickernappies Cloth Diaper Q & A: How can I get rid of the Ammonia smell?

Ammonia, the killer of cloth diaper dreams.  It's a beast, we've all battled it, even the most experienced cloth diapering mamas; retailers, manufacturers, customers...no one's immune to it.  It's the number one reason why families give up on cloth, the funky ammonia smell that they just can't get rid of.  It makes your eyes water so you know it's got to be bothering the baby, they just can't tell you.

There are products that treat the ammonia odor, yet it persists?  You can't figure it out.

So what's the answer?  Well everyone's cloth diaper washing routine is different but there's no denying that the longer you let your urine soaked diapers sit in either the wetbag, doorknob pail or diaper pail, the more the ammonia seems to hang on for dear life when all you want to do is get rid of it!

Try this simple tip and see if it doesn't help you conquer the ammonia beast.

TIP:  Before placing your urine soaked diaper into the diaper pail or wetbag, take it to the sink or toilet, and rinse it off.  Often the diaper sprayer is only used for poopy diapers, but there are benefits to using it on pee-only diapers as well.

Personally, I'd take my pocket diaper to my bathroom sink, pull out the insert, let the water rinse it and then squeeze it out really good before placing in the pail or wetbag with the diapers.  The same could be done with the pocket shells.  Rinse in the sink and then wring out or spray them into the toilet with your cloth diaper sprayer.

The more urine you can rinse before allowing them to sit until laundry day the better off you'll be.

What are your thoughts?  Do you spray or rinse your "pee" diapers before putting them in the pail or do you only do that with soiled cloth diapers?

Prolong the life of your cloth diapers with these simple tips!

Everyone wants their cloth diapers to last, either so that they can re-sell them or save them for future children.  Unfortunately by the time you realize you've been doing something "bad" to your diapers it's often too late to make a difference.

There are some easy tips for prolonging the life of your cloth diapers and decreasing the amount of damaging wear and tear they receive.  Let's highlight a few basics.
  • Don't leave them too long before washing.  Scary, gross and very sad but a lot of mom's inadvertently leave their diapers in the diaper pail too long and once you've got black mold...good luck getting it out.  It WILL ruin your diapers.
  • If you line dry, don't leave them in the sun too long.  A little sunning is great and line drying will save you a lot of money, but don't forget about your diapers and leave them out in the sun all day every time.  Too much heat and sun will fade your diapers and cause a breakdown of the elastics and pul.  Once in a while and you're in the clear, but leaving them outside for hours and hours every time is not a good idea.
  • Machine Drying.  Figure out how long your pocket diaper shells and covers take to dry and then get yourself into the habit of taking them out at that point in the cycle.  Diaper covers, since they rarely consist of absorbent materials, are almost dry when they come off the spin cycle in your washer.  If you have enough diapers that you can wait, then we suggest you hang them to dry.  Chances are they'll be dry in 30 minutes and you'll have been able to avoid the dryer all together.  If you leave your covers and pockets in the dryer longer than needed you are decreasing their life span.
  • Aplix.  Have aplix/velcro diapers?  Make sure your laundry tabs are secure before washing and drying.  The aplix is usually scratchy and during washing and drying they can damage your other cloth diapers and cause pilling and snags.  
These are just a few basic suggestions for prolonging the life of your cloth diapers and tips for keeping them looking newer longer.  Have a suggestion that you didn't see mentioned, then please share it with us via the comments below.

Crunchy vs. Hip: Can you be both? The Haute Green Social Hour proved you can!

Well mamas, I'm here to testify that you can be BOTH hip and crunchy!  While away on my trip to BlogHer'11 I had the pleasure of attending a special event for cloth diapering, green and eco-friendly bloggers.  Let me tell you, there were some fashionistas there!

The event was appropriately named The Haute Green Social Hour and it took place at the Dragons Den restaurant in San Diego.  There were mamas (and some papas) there from various blogs and covering all sorts of topics and genres.  The event and accompanying swag had a heavy focus on cloth diapers and breastfeeding and each guest left with a bag full of goodies sure to make every fluff loving mama drool.

From babywearing to breastfeeding, flip flops to stilettos, this group was a haute bunch!  The best BlogHer'11 party I attended!

Here are a couple of my personal pics from the event!

Knickernappies Custom Fit Pocket Diapers fit "like a glove!"

Sized pocket diapers have many advantages over one size cloth diapers and our Knickernappies Custom Fit Pocket Diapers are some of the best.

Our Custom Fit diapers come in three sizes: 
  • Small
  • Medium
  • Large.  
The range fits from about 7 lbs (small) to 40+ pounds (large).  With 17 colors, you're sure to find several that your baby will love!  The comments we hear most often is that Knickernappies Custom Fit diapers "fit like a glove" or like it was made just for your baby.  Custom Fit diapers do not come with an insert, allowing you a more economical diaper with the ability to customize the insert to meet your baby's needs.

Knickernappies Custom Fit (formerly called Knickernappies 2G) cloth diapers feature elastic at both the waist and back.  This keeps messes where they belong: in the diaper!  With hidden snaps and gentle leg elastic, Knickernappies are designed for your baby's comfort.  
 Side snaps give this diaper a very smooth fit across the tummy.  No more poofing or drooping!  In addition, side snaps are great for curious toddlers who have mastered aplix or front-snapping diapers.

Our Custom Fit Diapers are a must have for any growing cloth diaper stash!

Quick Tips for Cleaner Cloth Diapers

Washing cloth diapers is an essentail part of using cloth and doing it just right can require lots and lots of practice.  The basics of caring for cloth diaper laundry could seem like a no brainer for some but since there are always newbies in need of tips and tricks, I figured we'd quickly go over some of the basics which help keep your diapers cleaner and make them easier to launder.
  • Consider using a Biodegradable Liner.  Bio Liners give the poop something to stick to and can easily be pulled off and tossed into the toilet.  The less poop that's stuck onto the diaper the less staining you'll have and your diapers will be easier to wash.
  • Flush the poop!  This might seem obvious but really not everyone may think of it.  Before you put the cloth diaper into your wetbag, pail liner or washing machine, try to either scrape off or spray off as much of the soiled matter into the toilet.  With breastfeeding poop this could be optional since bf poop dissolves fairly easily in the washer.
  • Wash as often as you can.  I recommend to not wait more than 36 hours or approximately 18 cloth diapers.  You wouldn't leave wet towels or wet soiled clothing in the clothes basket for 3-5 days so why would you do it with cloth diapers?  The longer  you wait the greater risk you run of mold, mildew and....bugs!
  • Rinse first!  Throw your diaper laundry in the washer and run a rinse, if a top-loader then leave the lid up and let them soak for about 20 minutes, then complete the rinse.  You want to make sure they're nice and rinsed and as much debris as possible has been rinsed away.
  • Use a cloth diaper safe detergent and hot wash cycle.  We recommend you check out our Cloth Diaper Care page or consult Pinstripes and Polka Dots Cloth Diaper Detergent Chart.
  • Extra Rinse Cycle?  It's up to you whether you think you need an extra rinse cycle.  If you suspect you've not thoroughly rinsed all the detergent from your diapers you can add that extra rinse just for peace of mind.
  • Line Drying.  Line dry if you can to preserve the life of your diapers.  Plus, a little UV helps rid your diapers of unsightly staining.  Don't leave them out to bake in the sun, take them in when they're dry.
  • Machine Drying.  Leave your diapering items in the dryer just as long as needed.  If you're drying a mixed load, take your cloth diaper pockets and covers out after about 15 minutes and then let the rest of your load dry.  The longer and more frequently you use the machine dryer the more wear and tear you'll have.
Well folks, that's the quick and dirty list of tips on how to properly and efficiently wash your cloth diapers!  Do you have any extra tips you think I've missed?  Feel free to comment.

What might you need to cloth diaper in the sky? A BlogHer'11 inspired post.

Contributed Article by The Cloth Diaper Geek

Who would have thought that a flight would inspire a cloth diaper related blog post?  Well I suppose if you're a cloth diapering blogger it's no big surprise, but I'm happy about it either way.  A little friendly advice for some of you who might be flying soon or who might plan on traveling to BlogHer in the future.

After spending about two hours in the airport this morning, I have a 4.5 hour flight, then a two hour layover followed by another 45 minute flight.  There are no babies that I've seen so far on my plane but we all know that people travel with babies all the time.

My predicament has got me thinking, "what if I had a baby with me and what if they were in cloth diapers?"  So I decided to put my thinking cap on and imagine what I'd need if I did.

When you're flying it's important to remember that there are times baby will need to be changed which will no doubt be inconvenient or even impossible.  The plane could be in seat belt mode, you could be getting ready to board, your plane's restrooms could be occupied, etc.

Be prepared to have to change anywhere! 
You need a changing pad, a decent sized one.  You might have a seat to lay baby on, somewhere in the bathroom, on a bench in the airport, on your family member's lap?  Be prepared to have to lay baby down, and a burp cloth isn't going to cut it.


Cloth Wipes or Disposables?
Totally up to you what you prefer when it comes to wipes. You might be a die hard cloth wipes user in which case you'll probably bring them without thinking twice.  You want to consider pre-moistening them because airlines have a new rule that you can't bring more than 2oz of a liquid with you.  Convenience wise, you also may not want to be fumbling around with a spray bottle or squirt bottle, plus it's just one more thing that "might" leak out into your purse, diaper bag or luggage. 

Biodegradable, flushable or disposable wipes are an option but keep in mind that you probably won't be able to flush any wipes in the airplanes restroom.

Pocket Diapers or Prefolds?
Again, if you're keen on cloth and an old pro, you'll probably just go with whatever you normally use because you're a pro!  But for everyone else, they might want to consider a convenient option like prestuffed pocket diapers or all-in-ones as opposed to prefolds and covers.


Hybrid Diapers are also a great option!
Hybrid diapers give you the freedom to choose cloth or disposables.  You could plan on the cloth inserts for your whole trip but also take a package of Bio Liners for backup.

You need a wetbag or...two!
Definitely plan for the unexpected.  You get stuck at an airport for longer than expected, you need somewhere to store the extra diapers that you've used.  Pack an extra wetbag for emergencies.


Bring extra diapers!
It's never happened to me (knock on wood) and I hope it never happens to you, but it does happen.  People's flights get delayed, they end up at the airport for a LONG time and sometimes even stuck on the tarmack in a broken down plane.  Make sure you have extra cloth diapers!

Ok, that's my two cents.  If I had to take a baby and they were of diapering age, I'd hopefully take my own advice above and not get stuck in any stinky situations.

Today's Featured Fluff Addict is...Kate!

Tell us a little about yourself, where you are located and if you have little ones in cloth diapers?
My name is Kate, I live in beautiful Portland, Oregon. I have two children, Ian ( 24 months) and Sophie ( 4 months) Ian was in cloth diapers for half of his infancy. When he was 13 months old, he learn to unsnap/unvelcro his cloth diapers, so we had to begin using disposables, and duct tape them all around his waist. At 22.5 months old, he began potty training, and we use bummis training pants and disposable night time training pants.
   
What made you decide to give cloth diapers a try?
I had been doing a lot of research on how to save money with a baby, and one of the first things that I was drawn to was cloth diapering. I liked the economical factor, but at first I was hesitant because of all the overwhelming options. I started out by getting gdiapers from a consignment sale, and started with those and cloth prefolds. Then later,  I had a friend who was wanting to sell a large portion of her stash, so I dove in and bought it.
   
What were your friends and family's reaction when seeing the "new" cloth diapers and have they been supportive or skeptical of your choice to use cloth diapers?
My in laws and my friends are amazed at how adorable most of my diapers are, and at how easy the fitteds or pockets are to use and to take care of. My mother in law works at a daycare in my husbands home town, and even she said if she showed her boss these diapers, they would be more a more cloth friendly facility! I get a lot of compliments on the colors/prints of the diapers, especially the minky ones :)
   
The person to whom I was shocked to get support from was my husband. When I started thinking about CDing, I figured I would have to work REALLY hard to convince him. To my chagrin, when I brought up the topic, all I had to say was "affordable and economical" and he was on board. Even the thought of caring and washing them didn't bother him.
   
What was your very first cloth diaper?
 An 8 pack of gdiapers with 20 cloth prefolds that I purchased used at a consignment sale for 15.00.
   
What type of diapers does your stash primarily consist of; pockets, aio, onesize, prefolds, flats, hybrids, etc.?
I mostly have pockets (18), next is fitteds (12), then AIOs (8) and then a few prefolds and flats.
   
What is your favorite Knickernappies product or which Knickernappies product are you dying to try and why?
I have yet to try the OS diapers, so I am dying to feed my addiction. But I've also heard awesome things about hemp inserts so I am really wanting to try those out, especially for overnight diapers.
    
Do you have a favorite place to hang out and talk or learn about cloth ; a blog, message board, facebook page?
Facebook. A LOT of my online mom friends are CD addicts as well. I also chat alot on the cloth diaper thread on www.baby-gaga.com.
   
What cloth diapering item, besides diapers, do you consider to be a must-have accessory?
Wetbags ( obviously) and bioliners!
   
If you could share just one tip with someone who is just starting out with cloth or considering using cloth, what would be your best piece of advice to them?
Start out slow, and buy one of each type of diaper ( OS, sized, pockets, fitteds, contours, AIOs, prefolds, etc). Look for sales and reach out to other CD mamas for advice. Join a CD chat before you start buying and check out deals, tips, ask advice, etc. If you want, look for stores that offer a variety trial package so you can find out what kinds you like best. When I first started out, it was overwhelming! But I had a few friends who helped me decipher it all, and I quickly got into a groove. Now, I enjoy laundry and LOVE using cloth diapers.

A BIG thanks to Kate for sharing her cloth diapering story and advice with us!
