stages of diaper laundry

Newborn Diaper Laundry

When you hold your tiny little baby in your hands, you will spend countless hours marveling at the exquisite detail of their little body. The toes, the fingers, the ears, the nose…And you will also spend countless hours marveling at how that perfect little body can produce SO MUCH POOP! An absolute machine dedicated to not only generating copious amounts of it, but also being able to project it across a room and into your master closet across the hall (true story). The good news is, even at this stage, diaper laundry is incredibly easy. Until your baby’s bowel movements change form from liquid to semi-solid (meaning it isn’t completely runny and has some texture to it), absolutely nothing needs to be done with it. A good rule of thumb is that you don’t have to spray or dunk poopy diapers until your baby produces enough poo … Read More

2020 has thrown us all a lot of curveballs, hasn’t it!?! At the Thirsties warehouse, we’ve had to adjust how we do things to keep our staff safe. We’ve needed to respond to slower supply chains while also meeting demands for more product as #quarentinelife has inspired new families to try reusable diapers. The result was adapting our regular release schedule but finally, we’re baaaaaa…aaaaaaaack at it with four exciting additions to the Thirsties line-up.

October Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month

The month of October is dedicated to many important issues in our society, one that is tragically relevant in our parenting community is that of pregnancy and infant loss. It is estimated that 1 in 4 women will experience a loss at some stage of pregnancy, and many parents mourn children who have been born but left their arms too soon. Indeed, if you have experienced this type of loss, you are not alone.

An expression that all parents can agree on: The days are long, but the years are short.

Whether the stage of “being out of diapers” is 2 years, 3 years, 4 years…or a few days away, it seems to feel fast and unexpected, because surely our babies are not growing up that quickly? The emotions that accompany every transition in our children’s lives can be intense, and this is certainly a stark one that marks leaving behind a “baby” stage for one of *child*, so it is perfectly okay to need to take a few breaths while figuring out what comes next. 

After you have washed, dried, checked for stains and spots, sorted and folded, you may be staring at that pile and be thinking- what now?

For some, another baby, or maybe-baby will be using the same diapers, if you have a stash that has been well cared for … Read More
