As I mentioned in my diapering update, we’ve streamlined our cloth diaper stash. Since Ames’ birth, we’ve tried almost every cloth diaper on the market. I’ve enjoyed the journey, and I’ve learned a lot! After several months & another positive pregnancy test, though, we decided to go back to the basics. Our favorite diaper is the Goodmama fitted, but they are expensive and we’re building that stash slowly. In the meantime (and regardless), nothing beats a fluffy butt in a prefold.
What I love about prefolds:
Absorbent. Softer with each wear & wash. Picture an old t-shirt.Cost-Effective. Can be found for less than $1/dipe. Hello, twins?!Simple Laundry. No stuffing, assembling, or untangling Velcro. Pull ’em out & go.
Perfect fit. Can be adjusted easily. Chris has mastered a custom Ames-fold.
Natural fibers. No skin (or stink) issues. We occasionally go coverless at home.
Up until now, we’ve only used unbleached Indian cotton. But thanks to Diapers, Etc., we recently received a few BabyKicks Hemparoo Fleece prefolds to try out. Goodness, these badboys are soft! Hemp is naturally antimicrobial, and fleece wicks away moisture. Genius!
To celebrate their new website, Diapers, Etc. is throwing a week-long party… One of you is going to receive a $25 gift card to the newly re-launched online store!To enter, leave your name in the comments below. I’ll draw a winner randomly on February 18.
It doesn’t just stop there, though. Diapers, Etc. is offering contests & promotions throughout the month of February on their Facebook page. Follow Eco Chic Parties on Twitter to learn more.
