(Stash) Size Doesn’t Matter

stash size doesn't matter

A question that pops up so, so frequently is regarding how many diapers you need to cloth diaper. There are guidelines for this (and I’ll share them a bit later), but I’ve come to find out that this is a flexible number.

Stash size can be a very personal thing.

There are those out there who want to #buyallthecloth. It’s almost like a collecting hobby as much as it is a diapering solution. In addition to the excitement of helping the environment and (in theory) saving money, these cloth diaper users also fall in love with the quality and, oftentimes, cuteness of the diapers.

And most of us have bought a certain diaper for exactly that reason. A cute design is everything.

Then there are those among us who choose to use cloth to simplify their lives as much as possible. These parents sometimes choose the cheapest option or sometimes Read More

New Products on the Block

“They’ve got the right stuff…baby….”

If you’re not old enough to remember the brief but awkwardly spectacular infatuation for NKOTB, I apologize…for soooo many reasons.

But, seriously, I thought it’d be fun to meet the new “kids” (styles and other cool stuff) on our block lately. Some of these are new prints, new collections, new styles, and even new products altogether. Since I’ve been focused on our new baby, a few of these may not be BRAND new, but they’re all amazing additions to the Thirsties lineup. Maybe you’ll find an exciting new item to add to your collection – just like a “new” Joey McIntyre collectible card. *swoon*

 

floriabunda

First up is my personal favorite new print, Floribunda. This. Is. GORGEOUS. The intensity of the pattern’s colors gets me right in the feels. It’s unique and fresh (yet equally retro at the same time). I’m in love.

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
