Keeper of the Home’s Pocket Diaper Review

Why pocket diapers? For over 4 years, I used fitted diapers with covers, and I was happy with them. Yes, they could be a bit bulky but I didn’t have any major issues. They were simple to use and cost effective to buy. Then I discovered pocket diapers. I have been a bit like a kid in a candy store. I’m in love. Here’s why: Pocket diapers are more trim and fitted. They come in so many adorable colors and designs. In my experience, they […]

Review and Giveaway: Eco Nuts Organic Laundry Soap

Everytime I read it, I giggle just a little, “Thanks for using Eco Nuts- you’d be nuts to use anything else!” Truth be told, I’m nutty in so many other ways that perhaps the fact that I’m now using dried fruit shells (aka soap nuts) to clean my clothes shouldn’t surprise me or anyone else! Why would you want to choose Eco Nuts soap nuts to clean your clothes? They are completely sustainable, renewable, biodegradable and an organic alternative to chemical detergents and more expensive […]

Cloth Diaper Liners: No More Rash Overnight!

You may or may not remember how we've been having trouble with Caden getting rashes when we use cloth diapers overnight. We've been able to continue on with cloth in the day, but have been using more natural disposable diapers just at night, for the past 6 months or so. But no longer! Last week a much anticipated package arrived in the mail. It contained numerous pocket diapers (for the new baby), and also 3 micro-fiber terry inserts that I had expressed a desire to […]

I’m sold on the dry diaper pail!

Just a couple of weeks ago, I wrote a few posts about cloth diapering (Part 1 and Part 2), and was asked by a reader about using the dry pail method. It was actually the first time it had occurred to me that it was even an option to not soak my diapers in water! I’ve been trying it out for the past week and a half, and let me just say, I’m sold! There is no increased smell (in fact, I would say it’s […]

Q&A: Cloth diapering (even for the faint of heart)- Part 2

If you missed the first post in this series, here’s the link. Here’s my basic method: Whenever I change my little guy, I toss all of the diapers and wipes into a pail beside his change table (I try to remember to close the velcro tabs, but hey, I’m not perfect). If it’s quite a solid poo (now that he’s eating some solid foods), I flush it down the toilet first, then put it in the pail. My pail is from Walmart. It cost less […]

Q&A: Cloth diapering (even for the faint of heart)- Part 1

I’m assuming that you cloth diaper. I would love all the info that I could get as far as your favorite methods, and the products you use. The information out there is overwhelming. I am Mama to five wonderful girls and have another blessing on the way , due July 3. Shelly Seeing how many other fantastic bloggers and sites have covered this subject well, I am not going to reinvent the wheel and give you all of the ins and outs of why cloth […]
