12 Tips for Newbies to Cloth diapering
If at first you don’t succeed…
1) Wash, wash again….seriously. These fluffy things need plenty of washing to get primed and ready to absorb to their fullest cloth diapering potential. Give them a chance to show you their stuff. Follow the directions of your CD’s packaging or a basic laundry washing routine is cold wash with no detergent (get rid of the dirties), hot wash + recommended amount of cloth diaper friendly detergent & extra rinse. More about laundry to come soon!
3) Remember the BIG 3 Golden Rules: Wash diapers well, never put microfiber against baby’s bottom, and use a CD safe diaper rash cream . Unsure if your diaper cream is safe? Use a liner or some toilet paper between baby’s bum & the diaper!
4) Check the fit. If you are using One Size or any with snaps, experiment. Yup, it took me several tries to find the perfect leak-free fit with each diaper. Think about Goldilocks and the 3 Bears…too small, too big, just right. Change the rise, adjust the belly….
Since becoming a mama, I have become increasingly
obsessive conscientious about what products my family are using. Over the past several years, I have spent many an hour on EWG’s Skin Deep, typing in products and seeing their rating, a worthwhile but time-consuming process.
I have tried to simplify how I choose my products based on what I have learned through my research. I most often ask myself these questions:
Are all the ingredients listed? Do I know what they are? Can I pronounce them?
Ella’s Botanicals fits my criteria and then some! Here’s why:
