Potty Learning & Training Pants

Potty Learning & Training Pants

  Potty. Learning. It's exciting, it's stressful, and it's a necessary part of parenting. I certainly don't enjoy the process, but do look forward to the day my little one is potty-independent and can wipe themselves! Cora has been learning to use the potty (she's a little over 3 years) for the last few weeks. It's been a bit more challenging than when her brother learned, but it's going well!I personally prefer waiting until they are about 3 years old, though lots of families start earlier with great success. I just like to know that they can get on the...

Deep Cleaning Your Diapers

Deep Cleaning Your Diapers

A question we often get asked is how to clean secondhand diapers or treat diapers after an infection. This is often referred to as stripping. Repeated stripping can damage diapers so please use sparingly. Often a deep cleaning with Mighty Bubbles will take care of stink and mineral buildup issues without the need to do a bleach wash. There are a lot of thoughts on how to do this, but unfortunately many of those go against manufacturer recommendations. So here is a rundown of what I personally do to prepare used diapers before adding them into our rotation. To begin,...

Newborn or One Size: Battle of the Diapers

Newborn or One Size: Battle of the Diapers

Can a diaper really get you from birth to potty training? Possibly, but you'd likely benefit from a few months of newborn diapers until your babe really fits into one size (OS) diapers. There are always exceptions, but after seeing the size difference I was sold on the necessity of newborn cloth. I may be a little biased, because my babies start small, but it took a few months for both of my littles to hit the 8 pound mark that most OS diapers start fitting, and even then they didn't get a good fit until closer to 10 pounds....
