USING CLOTH DIAPERS
fold over elastic (FOE) is latex free. But the elastic used in the
legs and waist of our diapers that do not have FOE do have natural rubber
latex in it. If you need latex free diapers, please contact me.
WHY USE CLOTH DIAPERS?
diapers are not what you think they are. It's not your grandma's
diaper anymore. Sure you can still use flats and pre-folds with plastic
pants, but the modern cloth diaper has made a revolutionary change.
the long run, cloth diapers are cheaper than disposables. On average,
it costs $2,200-$2,800 for the lifetime of diapering a child. You can
start off full time cloth diaper for as little as $250, and for the
lifetime of diapering spend approximately $300-$800. Plus you can reuse
the diapers for future children, and even resell them when you no
longer need them.
Disposable diapers are known to have toxic chemicals both in the diaper itself and in the diaper making process.
18 Billion diapers end up in landfills each year just in the US. Not
only to they sit in a landfill for hundreds of years before decomposing,
but it takes hundred of thousands of trees to produce them as well.
diapers are just as convenient to use as disposables. Of course there
is a learning curve to get a routine down, but after that it's a
breeze. Snaps and velcro make taking them on and off just as easy as
disposables. You can adjust the absorbancy by "stuffing" extra inserts
in the pocket. There are organic fabric options, one size options, even
all in one options where the cloth diaper is fully contained and goes
on and off just like a disposable. And more and more day cares are
becoming "cloth friendly."

HOW TO USE CLOTH DIAPERS
cloth diapers generally reduces or eliminated diaper rash, especially
if the rash was due to a reaction from disposable diapers. But on
occasion, rashes may still occur. You must use a cloth diaper safe rash cream,
otherwise it will ruin your diapers. We use and recommend Spectrum
Organic Unrefined Coconut Oil (aka virgin coconut oil) and CJ's BUTTer.
Not only are they great for diaper rash, but they are fantastic for
other skin aliments as well. If you are concerned about using the CD
safe cream with your diapers, you can cut up a piece of microfleece
found at our local fabric store. Cut the microfleece to fit inside your
diaper. No need to sew. Wash your liners separately from your
diapers, as cream can transfer to your diapers.
If you absolutely have to use a rash cream that is not CD safe, I would recommend using 2 microfleece liners. You MUST WASH SEPARATELY from your other cloth diapers. The cream will transfer to your diapers during the wash.
diapers are only as good as the inserts used in them. We designed our
inserts after extensive testing on what materials and how many layers
work best for inserts. Therefore we only recommend using inserts
purchased from Emrose Diapers & Baby Boutique or Crunchy Momma, Crunchy Baby for our diapers.
Cloth diapers are different than disposables and cannot be left on a
child for extended periods of time. We recommend changing cloth diapers
every 1.5-2 hours depending on what kind of a "wetter" your child is.
Leaks and "compression" leaks occur when the insert is saturated and
there is no place else for the liquid to go, but out.
Hidden PUL Diapers (DIsclaimer)
A hidden PUL diapers means that the outer most layer (the print) is a cotton or cotton blend fabric and the waterproof fabric (PUL) is hidden in between the cotton and the inside diaper lining. PUL prints are limited, and there are so many more fun and cute prints available in cotton fabrics. However, there is the chance that wicking may occur. Wicking means that the cotton fabric may pull moisture thru the leg openings from the inside soaker insert making the outside cotton fabric wet.
We have tested our hidden PUL diapers on my own baby and with customer's babys. If the diaper is stuffed with the appropriate insert for your child's wetting habits and it is changed in the recommended 1.5-2 hour time period, then wicking should not occur. I've had a hidden PUL diaper go 3 hours and have had no wicking. And I've had one go 45 minutes with wicking. When the wicking occurred it was due to my error. My daughter just drank a 7 oz bottle and was then playing in her exercise saucer. Compression leaking/wicking occurred thru the leg holes. Because of the position she was in, the urine didn't really have anywhere to absorb and was squished out the sides. This has also occurred after a bottle when sitting in the car seat because of the strap position.
