Hot Under the Diaper?

"disposable diapers should be considered as one of the factors that might cause or exacerbate asthmatic conditions" Arch Environ Health 1999

Our Experience:

Using cloth diapers, i mean you can only say so much. Right? Well, if you've read the above sites than you well understand why we choose this method of diapering. I won't have my child next to something that is not natural 24 hours a day. 

Honestly, when we first decided to use cloth diapers I was a little scared of all the extra work I was going to make for myself. My first week of using them put my fears to rest. Once you have a routine down there is nothing to it, I wash mine twice a week in natural detergent. I leave a pail by the potty for diapers I need to rinse out. I think it is as easy, or easier, than lugging two children into a store once a week to purchase diapers. I won't even get into ALL the extra money you will be saving, your next baby will have free diapers! 

What we use:

I use Mother Ease unbleached diapers with their covers, the softness is incredible and they're very leak resistant. They snap on the sides and they are one size fits all. Honestly, I was a little worried about the one size fits all saying but surprisingly they really are! So, I won't be needing to buy anymore diapers either. I also use cloth wipes, I just put them next to the diapers in a wipe warmer with plain water. Easy! 

I also just purchased some bumpkins all in ones (not one size fits all though), I purchased these for extra convenience for outings. They work great for situations when your traveling.

I order all my diapers through Baby Lane, I love their service!
