4 Reasons Cloth Diapers are Summertime’s BFF

summertime-cloth
Hooray! Summer is officially upon us. For those in the American Southwest, I apologize for my excitement; I know it’s beyond stiflingly hot out there. Sorry!

But, as an educator, I am stoked to be home to focus on my family and writing projects this summer. I’m even happier that our little girl will be sporting a fluff bum 100% of the time.

So, why are cloth diapers perfect for summertime? I’m sharing my favorite reasons today.

The Only Wardrobe Baby Needs – Aside from some safe sunscreen and a floppy hat, a cloth diaper is all the wardrobe you need to worry about on those super hot days. Could you do this in disposables? Sure. But, the fabric and downright adorableness trump sposies any day, right?

Double as Swim Diapers – If you’re in a pinch for a swim diaper while vacationing, an old (unstuffed) pocket diaper shell will … Read More

Retro Fluff – Cloth Diapering Thoughts from My Mother

As you may already know, I’m a holiday person. I love creating round-ups of books and activities to celebrate with. You should see my Pinterest boards for the kids’ birthdays. #imnotobsessedyouare #okayyesiam

So, with Mother’s Day on the horizon, you’d think I’d be doing the same thing, right? Curveball time!

I decided to share a lovely chat I had recently with my own mother (and a not-so-lovely old baby picture of myself) with the whole wide world. She raised four children (in the ‘70s and ‘80s), all in cloth. So, now that we’re on our own cloth journey, I was fascinated to hear how things used to be for the original fluff families.

Only One Way to Do Cloth

When my mother had her first child, cloth was pretty much the only option.

You know how today we go through the process of researching all the different styles of cloth … Read More

The Great Cloth Diaper Change

April is a great month, isn’t it?

Spring is here (for most of the country). It’s “Earth Month”, a whole month dedicated to thinking about our environmental impact. It’s a month to celebrate the #MakeClothMainstream challenge. There’s even a day to take part in the Great Cloth Diaper Change.

I mean, seriously! It’s a month MADE for eco-conscious cloth diapering families!

In case you haven’t heard of the Great Cloth Diaper Change (GCDC) yet, it’s a good thing I’ve caught you when I have. The GCDC is an activity dedicated to spreading the good word about cloth diapering.
This year, the GCDC is being held April 23rd at 11am local time and can be found in many locations throughout the US and beyond. (And don’t worry! If you can’t make it right at 11 o’clock, many are actual day-long events.)

Depending on where you live, GCDC activities vary. Some

My Cloth Diaper Failure and How I’ll Bounce Back

Greetings to all Thirsties blog readers and users out there! A quick introduction today before jumping right into my first post – my name is Megan, and I’m over-the-moon excited to be chatting with you here. I hope that my topics and experiences will speak to you on many levels as we take this journey together. I look forward to getting to know you and hearing your own thoughts in the comments!

 **********************

As a soon to be second-time mama, it’s sometimes hard to admit that I didn’t succeed at everything the first time around. I never got the hang of babywearing. My disciplining voice is still far from the gentle parenting resources I’ve read and admired. And, the biggest “shoulda-coulda-woulda” parenting moment of them all: I failed at cloth diapering.
