Near the end of Michael’s recent deployment, the children and I spent a month with my family in Florida and I used my cloth diapers!
I took my entire stash of diapers and wipes (18 pockets and 4 fitteds with covers).
We drove from Colorado to Florida over a 3 day period (with a friend helping me [...]
In case you missed it, here is my post on what our cloth diaper stash is like.
I sometimes get asked by people who don’t cloth diaper about my washing routine and when I explain it, they realize that it’s not nearly as yucky as one would think. So, I thought I’d tell you about [...]
Let me just say that cloth diapering is such an awesome thing! People who have not researched it probably think we’re nuts, but with the options out there today, it’s really not much different than using disposables.
Here is a link to all of my other posts on our adventure into cloth diapering. It [...]
Most of the time I use infant size prefolds with a Thirsties cover on Rachael. I save our fancy (one size pockets) diapers for outings and night time. All but one of her diapers/covers have a velcro closure….
It’s pretty warm around here these days since we don’t have a/c in our home – we are [...]

In truth, I could make the prefolds work, but the covers (even with the tabs overlapped) swallow her. [...]
Eli is now mostly potty trained – woohoo – except for poo, but that took Jacob a little while anyway! I’m excited to say that it only took him 2 weeks from diapers to undies! Jacob was much longer because he started going occassionally on the toilet when he was very young – around 18 [...]
The final installment in my series of our cloth diapering with a toddler journey. You can read part 1 and part 2 to catch up, if you like.
As I said in my last post, I am enjoying this new phase of life. If only Eli would decide that he thinks feeling wet is yucky, [...]
A few weeks ago I posted about switching Eli (and the new baby) to cloth diapers and told you I would provide an update once we had things figured out and had a few weeks to get adjusted. So, this is my official update!
I love it! It has taken Eli a little bit to adjust, [...]
In a previous post, I mentioned how we were doing our small part to help the environment and go ‘green’ in whatever ways we could manage right now…. well, I finally made the decision, did all my homework and discussed with Michael and we have officially decided to switch to cloth diapers.
Let me start off [...]
