Blowouts: One of the Big Downsides to Disposables

Just before our first child was born I remember taking the newborn-sized diapers out of the package and marveling at how how small they were. I imagined lifting tiny legs and wiping the teensy-tiny cheeks.  Those first few diaper changes are a new and exciting experience, as are all the “firsts” you will have with your child. But be warned: diaper changes can and will get ugly and you will eventually learn to fear “The Blowout“.  Because I now use cloth diapers on my son, our blowouts have been few and far between and have happened only when he is wearing disposables–like on the plane.  What better time to have a wriggly, poo-covered infant than when you are surrounded by silently staring strangers? But I digress.

The first few bowel movements your baby has will be meconium–a sticky black substance left behind in the baby’s intestines from … Read More

How do I get the stains out of my diapers and covers?

Staining and cloth diapers unfortunately go hand in hand. We here at Thirsties always try to stay up to date on laundering issues, and suggest the most eco-friendly and safe methods for cleaning diapers and covers.

Here are a few natural solutions for lifting stains…

  • Prewash on cold. With every load of laundry, we suggest a prewash with cold water.  DO NOT dry in the dryer as heat will set staining.
  • Although soaking can aid in stain removal, we do not recommend soaking anything on a regular basis for longer than 10 minutes. This is due to the fact that it can eat away at lamination, and lock in odor.
  • Use a cloth safe detergent to help clean your diapers. You can see a complete list here: Care and Use
  • Dry in the sun. This works 99% of the time. The UV rays of the sun fade the stains away.
