We all want our wool to look nice. I know I do. Knitted and crochet wool diaper covers, pants, and shorties have a tendency, overtime, to fuzz and (what we call) “pill”. Basically, this means that the wool will become fuzzy and small pilly balls will form. So, when you’d like to take the little one [...]

Yay! We made it through seven days of flat cloth diapers and handwashing and drying.
It’s been a long week, but that is totally unrelated to diapering!
The main thing that I’ve learned during this old school week of diapering is that it’s not really that hard. Although I see why cloth diapers have evolved into the [...]
Truth be told, all of Jett’s AIOs, Pockets, Fitteds, and Prefolds are in storage! We just have too big of a stash to bring to my parents’ house while we wait on the closing of our home.
It’s not always easy to live in someone else’s house and cloth diaper, especially if they’re not 100% behind [...]
This is the third night, this week, that the water has gone out. My mom called, and they said they were sending a technician, but they had no idea why the neighborhood keeps losing water.
The main thing I’ve learned this week is to wash early! Once everyone gets home from school and work, starts cooking [...]

We shall persevere!
I like to use flats a couple of ways! I like the origami fold when I’m looking for a [...]
Day two of the Second Annual Flats and Handwashing Challenge went much like day one!!
I was able to get yesterday’s set of dirty diapers washed this morning when the water was back on, and started on my way to a day of flats and covers again!
Low and behold, right after dinner tonight, the SAME thing [...]
Today marked the beginning of the Second Annual Flats and Handwashing Challenge!
I decided to take part in the flat challenge because I wanted to pay homage to our fore-mothers. We spend so much time searching for the diapers that’s going to be the easiest to put on, the fastest to wash and dry, the easiest for our husbands and [...]
So you say you can’t afford cloth diapers.
You don’t have a washing machine?
Oh, you’re dryer’s broken…
No problem! Seriously. No problem.
Why? Well, I’m glad you asked.
You don’t have to have money to cloth diaper your baby.
…and I’m going to prove it!
The Second Annual Flat and Handwashing Diaper Challenge is coming up the week of May 21-27, [...]
