You Can Clean Your Cloth Diapers

The number one reason families *do not* choose cloth diapers as an option for their growing family is hesitancy about laundry and getting their diapers clean.

Let’s debunk this a little and talk about how we can overcome it! If you are in cloth diapers part or full time, you probably have seen a plethora of differing opinions and misinformation when it comes to keeping these pieces of fabric clean. Something previous generations did without issue is now a hot mess of confusing jargon, “approved” wash routines and clean “tests” that take time and open Pandora’s box of fixes with the added bonus of worry that your diapers could actually be harming your baby with trapped bacteria. Take a deep breath and remember, you can successfully clean cloth diapers without overcomplicating things.

When a cloth diapering parent hears the word “flat”, thoughts of tedious folding, leaking, and how-on-earth-will-I-get-this-on-my-wriggly-baby overtake our minds. I mean, just look at it, a plain, white, large square of organic cotton. #Boring

Bear with me for just a second…what if I told you that flats can be the diapers with the lowest cost, easiest washing, longest durability, and more versatile ways to keep leaks at bay, from newborns through toddlers?

Shocking, I know!

Flats & Newborns

Flats are perfect for newborns who are leaky, explosive, and need the most diaper changes. You don’t need extensive Origami training to be able to make this work! Simply fold into smaller squares for the perfect pad fold in the duo wrap, a fantastic tutorial can be found here.

You can also be creative with rolling in the sides, “The Bikini Twist” (sounds like a great summer dance party!) or a … Read More


Thirsties products and prints of 2020

2020, the year everyone can’t wait to say good-bye too, amirite!?! Before we put 2020 in the rearview mirror let’s take a moment and remember that though this year filled the world with much heartache, Thirsties as a community and a company, saw some rainbows amidst the storm.

Reusables to the Rescue

When disposable diapers and even toilet paper were hard to come by reusable products like Thirsties cloth diapers and wipes came to the rescue!

The global pandemic and resulting lockdowns brought many new families to the cloth community. We are so grateful for our fabulous tribe, The Thirsties Groupies, and how they welcome and help cloth diapering newbies. We also have to thank our wonderful retailers who put in many extra hours serving the cloth community, pivoting their business practices, and keeping their chins up during uncertain times.

stages of diaper laundry

Newborn Diaper Laundry

When you hold your tiny little baby in your hands, you will spend countless hours marveling at the exquisite detail of their little body. The toes, the fingers, the ears, the nose…And you will also spend countless hours marveling at how that perfect little body can produce SO MUCH POOP! An absolute machine dedicated to not only generating copious amounts of it, but also being able to project it across a room and into your master closet across the hall (true story). The good news is, even at this stage, diaper laundry is incredibly easy. Until your baby’s bowel movements change form from liquid to semi-solid (meaning it isn’t completely runny and has some texture to it), absolutely nothing needs to be done with it. A good rule of thumb is that you don’t have to spray or dunk poopy diapers until your baby produces enough poo … Read More
