Grey Cloth Diapers the New Brown?

Back in October, I noticed that most big name manufacturers have discontinued their brown diapers.  It seems that brown cloth diapers are going out of fashion, along with those brilliantly contrasty brown/pink and blue/pink combinations.  I’ve noticed what seems to be replacing all of that brown: grey cloth diapers.

Grey Cloth Diapers are the New Brown

Grey Cloth Diapers – Everywhere!

Grey cloth diapers are a fabulous neutral that will still coordinate with most things… particularly since grey has become a common accent color in children’s clothing.  Sometimes you’ll find them on patterned diapers, too.

Grey Cloth Diapers in Your Pocket

Because of the midway price point and ease, pocket cloth diapers are “the gateway drug” to cloth diapering.  There are a few brands of pockets that now have grey cloth diapers in their line up.

The AppleCheeks Steel Me diaper was out for six months as a limited edition, did beautifully well, and is now retired to make room for Riptide to join the AppleCheeks line up.  However, the AMP Pebble is still available and bumGenius Armadillo is now being shipped out to customers who pre-ordered from Cotton Babies.  (Hopefully that means that they’ll ship it to their retailers next week and it’ll be in my hot little hands two weeks after that.)

Grey Cloth Diapers as an All-in-Two

The newest grey cloth diaper to join the line up is the Best Bottom Dragonfly Ripple.  The green is an avocado color… and honestly, I really love this diaper because it reminds me of Oscar the Grouch.  The GroVia Cloud was the first grey cloth diaper to start the trend.  The Planet Wise Grey Chevron is a nice and perfect grey color combination with the nice yellow pop on the piping.

Have you added a grey cloth diaper to your stash?  Which is your favorite?

 

Overnight Cloth Diapers for the Extreme Heavy Wetter

I have experimented with a variety of methods and systems for overnight cloth diapers.  Overnight cloth diapers with Eudora have never been a problem; she’s such a light wetter that it’s like she pees glitter or something.  With Norton?  Well, let’s just say that I spent a lot of time washing sheets in the morning.  I’d gone through a multitude of overnight cloth diapers with him.

It’s been a pretty drama-filled week lately.  Husband is allergy ridden and cranky.  The Jules tantrums have gone crazy again since Cotton Babies has had a seconds sale.  I’ve witnessed some blogger drama.  I’m not sure if Mercury is in retrograde or what, but I’m tired of it.  I want something that makes people happy.  And what makes people happy?  A new cloth diaper coming out.  Best Bottom did that yesterday, and it was moderately helpful.  But we need more.  So with that, I bring the Choose Your Cloth Diaper Giveaway!

I have too many cloth diapers to fit in one stash shot.  So I bring you the stash video.

Daily Cute Fluffy Bum – AppleCheeks

Daily Cute Fluffy Bum - AppleCheeks (Cloth Diaper Addicts)Yes, I’m biased.  I have no problem with that.  Today’s model is, in my humble opinion, one of the cutest little girls in the world.  Eudora is modeling her AppleCheeks diaper in the Love Happens print while having a meeting with Curious George, Angel Bear, Jessie of Woody’s Round Up Gang, and a stuffed puppy.
