Diaper Leaks and How to Fix Them

Leaks. Argh! When you pick up your little one and feel something wet on his clothes (especially if it’s started happening on a regular basis), your mind goes into “Why is this happening? How do I fix this??” mode. It’s not a “cloth only” issue when it comes to diapering, but it’s one that we hear about from time to time with cloth.

Our girl, Laura, addressed the topic on a recent #ThirstiesLive and we thought we’d pass along her great info with our readers here.

Before troubleshooting your leaks, it helps to figure out if you have a properly working cloth diaper. This means that it’s a good idea to rule out the following:

– Delaminated TPU. When the laminated material delaminates, you’ll notice that it looks and feels different – kind of bumpy and like it’s been superheated.

– Repelling. If liquid isn’t being absorbed but rather Read More

No Pants, No Problem


Our daughter is now 19 months old. One of the cool things about this age is that the clothes (and, to an extent, our daughter!) are leaning away from baby-ish stuff. Less onesie-style tops mean regular shirts and tees. Add this to the heat of summer and that means showing off our cloth diapers!


I’ve noticed online that there are differences of opinion about whether or not little ones should go places without pants (ie only in a top and diaper, maybe a pair of sandals). Some think that they’re only babies and there’s no harm in it; others don’t feel kids are “fully dressed” this way and it’s simply not appropriate.

Well, there’s no right or wrong answer. As with most things in parenting, it’s totally your choice and there will always be someone to disagree. Ain’t THAT the truth?

In our case, if we’re heading to visit someone’s Read More

Organizing Cloth Diapers – Part 2

I posted a handful of cloth diaper storage ideas a couple of years ago (and the ideas are still great!), but I thought it’d be fun to share a handful more. Depending on how much space you have for storage, there’s literally a solution for EVERYONE’s needs.

KEEP IT SIMPLE

At our house, we have a simple cube storage unit (pretty sure it was this one) with just a few bins (we picked some textured ones to up the “furniture-esque” appeal, but there are super inexpensive ones that work perfectly, too) that handle both Harpers clothes AND cloth. We also keep out-of-season and still-too-big clothes in an under-crib storage bin, which keeps things pretty minimal, and extra blankets and things hang out in her closet. It works for us!

HANG IT UP


The most mobile option of them all, hanging a cloth diaper stash using over-door storage is downright Read More

Celebrating the Spring Season with Fluff!

Whether you celebrate Easter, Passover, or the coming of Spring, this is a time of rebirth in so many ways. Be it a celebration of your spirituality, an end to Lent, or an appreciation for nature’s newness, there’s much to celebrate. Even just the return of a warmer season brings a simple, newfound joy.

If you’re having a fun celebration, taking some nice, dressy photos, or just letting the kids run around sans the heavy warm weather clothes, it’s a great time to show off your favorite fluff. (It’s also a practical way to advocate for greener practices during the month of April – aka Earth Month!)

Here are some of my favorite fresh fluff colors and prints for springtime (a handful are retired prints, so if you’re lucky enough to own one, you’re a lucky duck!):
