My Overnight Cloth Diaper Solution

Cloth Diapers OvernightWhen I first started out with cloth diapers, I vowed to use cloth diapers and cloth diapers only. Many of my wonderful friends who also use cloth diapers admit to using disposables overnight. Despite their attempts at using cloth during the night, the results had been so disastrous that disposables were the only thing keeping the sheets dry in any way. When the choice comes between washing sheets every day and using disposables, I would pick the disposables too.

Fortunately for me, my desire to use cloth diapers all the time has been a success. When I first began with overnight cloth diapering, I used a Blueberry pocket diaper with two Blueberry bamboo inserts and one microfiber insert. Since that time, though, I have moved away from any type of cloth diapers and have begun using Best Bottoms almost exclusively. [Read more…]

Cleaning Cloth Diapers in a Top Load Washer

Diapers in Washing MachineThe topic of washing cloth diapers has come up recently in one of the many cloth diaper groups to which I belong. Some moms have front loaders. Some moms have high efficiency washers. I personally have an older model top load washer. I also have a pretty good wash routine that keeps my diapers clean and fresh. Although the way that I clean my cloth diapers is different from the routines that a lot of other moms use, my method works great for me, my daughter, and my diapers.

When I first started cloth diapering, I did diaper laundry every day. Now that I have a pretty extensive stash of Best Bottom Diapers and a few other brands, I wash my diapers only every three days. Between washes, I keep the clean diapers in a basket and the dirty diapers in a wet bag in a garbage can with a lid. [Read more…]

Overnight Pocket Diaper Insert Combination Suggestions

When I first switched to cloth diapers when my daughter was a little over three months old, I decided to stop using disposables all together. Although some cloth diapering mamas ultimately decide to continue using disposable diapers at night because of problems with leaks, I have been able to find a number of overnight solutions that work great for my baby. She sleeps up to thirteen hours at a time without a diaper change (and I am not about to wake a sleeping baby just to change a wet diaper that is not bothering her). Here are some of the pocket diaper insert combinations that I have found that work great for overnight use. [Read more…]
