Why do YOU Cloth Diaper? VIA Dirty Diaper Laundry

Why do YOU Cloth Diaper? – Dirty Diaper Laundry

Thank you Kim for taking the time to write about cloth diapering and why I do it! Really, you took the words right out of my mouth! I initially started cloth diapering because of the volume of waste that disposable diapers create. Then cloth diapering turned into so much more. I have learned so much about the harmful chemicals in disposable diapers. I have learned how to truly get your cloth diapers/clothes clean – and what it takes (water) and what it doesn’t take (tons of soap). I love to see people’s expressions when I tell them I cloth diaper. They have NO idea how simple it is and how super cute the diapers are. If they only knew how much money they would save I’d have them hook line and sinker. Generally people can’t get passed the initial investment. They aren’t thinking long term and how a weekly trip to the store to buy a $10+ pack of diapers really adds up over several years. I have altered, albeit gently, my lifestyle because of cloth diapering. I am more conscious when I go grocery shopping and very selective about the foods that I purchase and feed my kids. I recycle – EVERYTHING. I too am by no means totally green but I have made changes where it was most important to me. Did I mention I am the FIRST person at my daughters pre-school to use cloth diapers? I have mixed emotions on that one. Happy that they agreed, sad that I am the first but hopefully, not the last. So, If I’ve peaked your interest and you would like to learn more about cloth diapering come by Bloom or give us a call (210-824-2727) to set up a one-on-one consultation. It’s free, doesn’t take much time and we have everything you need to get started!

Prince Lionheart Bamboo Cloth Wipes and Wipes Warmer

On Wednesday we got the new Prince Lionheart Warmies Wipes Warmer and the Warmies Reusable Bamboo Cloth Wipes in the store! I am so excited to try out my new stuff! I opened up the package of wipes and loved how soft they were. Yes, they are bamboo and yes I know that bamboo is soft but it surprises me everytime I feel it how

soft it actually is. It is luxurious!! The Warmies cloth wipes come in a package of 8. (The Warmies Wipes Warmer also has 4 warmies included as well as an Ever-Fresh pillow to keep the wipes moist, bonus!!). I love that the wipes have a recipe book included so that you can make your own wipes solution, I am not so crafty and need all the help and guidance I can get! I made the All-Purpose Wipes Solution. I would have like to have made the Essential Oils Wipes solution or the Soothing Baby Wipes solution but I don’t keep essential oils around the house and didn’t feel like going to the store and spending a fortune!! The All-Purpse Wipes solution called for olive oil, water and all-natural baby wash (I used Mustela Dermo-Cleansing infant hair and body wash, because we sell it at the store, it smells GREAT and I have plenty of it in my house!) So, I soaked my wipes in a big bowl, squeezed out the extra solution and rolled them up and placed them in my new Prince Lionheart Warmies Wipes Warmer. Several hours later they were nice and toasty. Finally, a dirty diaper. Time to put the wipes to the test. OMG I love these wipes. The solution I made smells so good and one wipe cleaned up the whole mess. Then I just threw it in the with

my cloth diaper and they all went into the wet bag together. No sorting dirty disposable wipes from the dirty cloth diaper. I’ve gone the flushable wipes way but just wasn’t very satisfied with the experience.

I give the Prince Lionheart Bamboo Cloth Wipes and Wipes Warmer a hearty thumbs up! Just one more way I am reducing my footprint. Get yours at Bloom!
