5 Reasons Why To Choose Cloth Diapers

1) the savings
Your baby will go through an astonishing 6000 diaper changes from birth to potty. Choosing disposable diapers and wipes will add up to an average of $2500.

In this scenario, you will actually earn in savings an hourly wage of $15 an hour in the time spent laundering your baby’s reusable diapers!

2) baby’s 1st carbon footsteps
Sixty times more solid waste and twenty times more raw materials, like crude oil and wood pulp, are used in the manufacturing of disposable diapers. In fact, 25 million trees are consumed and manufactured into baby diapers each year! As the third largest contributor to our landfills, all the toss-away diapers … Read More

…And I’m Thankful For My Thirsties

 Written by Elizabeth the day before Thanksgiving:

Thanksgiving is only a day away.  I’ve got to finish up preparing the dishes I’m bringing to the pot-luck Thanksgiving dinner that we will be attending.  This year I’m contributing stuffing, cranberry sauce and apple pie.  We’ll be celebrating with my sister’s husband’s family.  They’ll be eight children (ages 8, 6, 4, 4, 3, 2, 1, and 9 months) and nine adults.  With this many people getting together and so many of them being under the age of six, I’m anticipating joyful chaos with a dash of sugar-highs and sprinkled lightly with temper tantrums.

And every year, as I make my Thanksgiving goodies, I take time to reflect on the many things for which I am grateful. 

Here are a few of them:

I’m thankful, first and foremost, for my family: for my kids who are the light and joy in my life.Read More

How To Clean Cloth Diapers

If you look on 10 cloth diaper websites, you will most likely find 10 different recommended cleaning methods! The method used can vary with the kind of diaper and the fiber used.

Our recommendations are safe for the environment, and safe for baby.

Before Wearing
Wash all diapers at least one time before use, using a cloth diaper safe detergent such as our Thirsties Pre-Wash and Super Wash.

Thirsties hemp products can be used after 3 wash/dry cycles, and will reach maximum absorbency after 8 wash/dry cycles. You will need to wash Thirsties hemp products separately from your other diapering products for these initial cycles.
