Diaper Dawgs- Woman’s Best Friend in Diaper Laundry

I often leave these little monsters in my bathroom until my husband gets home from work. I dread dealing with them. Stinky dirty little things. We have two bathrooms, so I can avoid them for a while. But I always know they’re lurking, just waiting for me.

Yeah, okay, that sounds like the beginning to a really bad scary movie. What are these little monsters? Poopy pocket diapers. Yeah, those are my least favorite part of cloth diapering.  These Diaper Dawgs I received to review are great not only for diapers, but puppet shows too. The kids and I had a great time playing with them when they came in the mail.

Diaper Dawgs are your friendly neighborhood watch dogs.

These are great. They’re little silicon mitts that cover your fingertips to protect them from that icky stuff that you find lurking in your diapers. They’re shaped like a dog’s head, complete with little ears. The inside of the mouth is textured, so it holds the diaper more easily without slipping. Which is great, because I hate having to fish diapers out of the toilet.  And you can use these to fish diapers out of the toilet too. Well, as long as they’re floating.

 

You can use these to hold diapers while you’re spraying them out, or you can use them to pull the inserts out of pocket diapers or to pull apart all in twos.

Even if you aren’t using cloth diapers, these can be used to handle a nasty disposable blowout, taking the poopy clothes off, and taking the diaper to the trash. Yes, you should still wash your hands, but at least you won’t be washing poop off your hands.

 

Request these at your favorite cloth diaper store so they’ll start carrying them. You can purchase them at Kelly’s Closet (affiliate link). Check them out on Facebook and Twitter.

Cloth Friendly Diaper Creams & Little Twig

 

There are a lot of diaper creams out there.  A LOT.  You go to the baby section at a store, it can be overwhelming seeing all the choices you have.  Chances are though that if you’re cloth diapering, you might be aware that a lot of those creams contain ingredients that aren’t considered that safe for your baby.  So I’m going to share some of what I have found out about ingredients you should avoid in diaper creams (whether you use cloth diapers or not), a couple of tips on using diaper creams with cloth diapers, how to clean diaper cream out of your diapers in case you use too much (been there, done that), and finally, a review of one of my absolute favorite diaper creams, that is not only free of possibly harmful ingredients, it is also great for use with cloth diapers.

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…]
