I did! I was very impressed with Glow Bug diapers. I found the fit great as well as trim. The 360 gusset is nothing short of amazing. These may very well be my new favorite diaper. Highly recommended.

About BB Cloth

BB Cloth diapers are designed in the US, manufactured oversees. They are comprised of an outer layer of PUL and a suede cloth inner. They are available in lots of fun prints and colors. My favorite prints are the whales, of course, and the monster print.

Each print diaper comes with a 4 layer bamboo blend insert and each solid diaper comes with a 3 layer microfiber insert. Starting at just $7.50, these diapers are a must for anyone looking for an afforable cloth diaper. Diapers are also sold in bundles at an even larger discounted price.

What did I think?

This diaper worked great for my son. The fit is good. The print is fun. The only complaint I have is the lack of a barrier in the front to prevent wicking from the suede cloth to baby’s clothing. If you make sure the material is tucked in, this shouldn’t pose a huge problem but would be a nice addition. Overall, a great diaper for the price.

The Rebecca Foundation’s Cloth Diaper Closet

24 Jan

I was recently offered an amazing opportunity to work with a non-profit organization to help families in need. The name of this wonderful charity is The Rebecca Foundation.

What does The Rebecca Foundation do?

In a time where many families struggle to provide for their children, the cost of disposable diapers is shockingly high. The average family spends about $2,500 per child in diapers. Cloth diapers provide a cheaper, environmentally friendly alternative. An entire cloth diaper stash can cost as little as $100 and will last a child til potty training. As cheap as this is in comparison, some families are still unable to afford this initial, upfront cost. The Rebecca Foundation provides cloth diaper loans to low income families free of charge. Families can keep these loaned diapers for a year while they slowly build their very own stash. The only thing The Rebecca Foundation asks in return is that each family receiving their service volunteers just a little time per month to the foundation. This can even be done from a computer.

New Knoxville Chapter

I am blessed to have been able to help establish a new chapter of The Rebecca Foundation right here in my hometown. We are slowly growing and expanding, but do stand in need of donations and volunteers.

If you would like to donate to our Knoxville chapter, please contact me at knoxville@therebeccafoundation.org. Please also like and share our Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/trfcdc.knoxville

If you would like to donate to a chapter near you, volunteer, or apply for a diaper loan please visit our website at http://www.therebeccafoundation.org

Fluffy Butts

26 Nov

While I was pregnant with my son, I started looking into cloth diapering. Unfortunately I didn’t look long. I immediately jumped to the (wrong) conclusion that cloth diapering was icky and hard. Afterall, we had a stack of disposables from our baby shower that resembled the Eiffel Tower. Low and behold, when Silas was about 5 months old my disposable diaper stash began to disappear and new packs were costing us a pretty penny. So I decided to give cloth diapering a go one more time.

As you know I love to do, I did a little research. Man, was I overwhelmed at first. Did you know there’s a billion ways to cloth diaper?! Well maybe not a billion but several. You can use prefolds, flats, even flour sack towels and a cover or a pocket, a fitted, a hybrid, an all in one, or an all in two. You can choose insert options such as microfiber, bamboo, charcoal bamboo, hemp, or something mysterious called zorb. That’s a lot for a gal to take in. I’m not going to even attempt to explain the differences to you but I’ll post some helpful links at the bottom of this post. All I know is I’m a pocket with a cbi fan.

What’s so awesome about cloth diapering? Well obviously it saves money. Most families save upwards of $1,000 a child! But it’s also good for the environment. Did you know it takes a disposable diaper 250-500 years to completely decompose in our landfills?! Yikes. And it’s better for your baby. No harsh chemicals.

Is cloth diapering hard? Honestly its not. Now don’t get me wrong, it isn’t as convenient as disposables but it is no where near as difficult as I’d imagined. In fact, its pretty easy, just a few extra loads of laundry and a slightly bulkier diaper bag. What about the poop? That was my main concern. The poop isn’t so bad either. If my son has a poopy I just clean him up like normal then take the diaper to the toilet, shake off the solid stuff, then spray off the diaper (with my shower sprayer but eventually I’m getting a diaper sprayer lol), and toss in the wet bag til laundry time. Pretty simple.

I love cloth diapering! And my son’s fluffy tooshie is so cute!
