What Is An All In One (or AIO)?

Referring to a cloth diaper as an All In One diaper, or an AIO, means that everything you need for a single diaper change comes in one piece.

Adding Absorbency to Newborn Diapers

Do you ever feel like your newborn has outgrown the absorbency of your diapering system but not the size? You’re not alone.

Build Up: The Causes, Fixes and Facts

Fun fact: Sometimes, if you are having issues with your wash routine or using diaper rash creams unsafe for cloth diapers, your cloth diapers can get what we call build up. Build up is a concentration of either hard water minerals, leftover detergent or petroleum based diaper rash cream that causes your cloth diapers to smell badly or repel moisture. In this article, we’re going to discuss how to deal with build up, what causes buildup and how to prevent build up in the future.

Let’s start with the most common type of build up, hard water build up.

Hard water build up happens when the extra minerals in your water deposit onto your diapers, making them extremely hard to fully clean. As a result, your cloth diapers will start to smell and rashes can occur.

Meet Modern Jurassic and Moon Blossom!

We are always talking about the three Rs: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. Cloth diapers fit right in to the world of environmental consciousness, but now we are taking it to the next level. We are not only recycling some sought-after prints (with a twist), but we are providing a way for our customers to reduce and reuse in style!

Remember the craze caused by Sun Blossom and Classic Jurassic? Their counterparts, Moon Blossom and Modern Jurassic, are sure to cause a stir as well!

As their familiar-sounding names indicate, we have recycled the prints and given them a different color palette. Moon Blossom has only a tiny tweak—a navy background replaced the white—while the flowers, bees, binding and snaps stay true to the original, Sun Blossom. The primary blues and greens of Classic Jurassic were replaced with purples, oranges, and teals with Lagoon binding and snaps. For all those who … Read More
