...because home doesn't happen overnight.

*THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.*

Congrats to Charlotte whom advises cloth-diapering parents to buy diapers in gender neutral colors so they can be used on future kids or sold to folks with boys or girls.

A few weeks ago I featured the etsy shop Mod MomME. {Btw, etsy crush posts are not sponsored and I only feature shops I have bought from or would like to buy from.} After the post, I was contacted by Mod MomME’s owner asking if I’d be game for a giveaway. Yes!

PRIZE: one wet bag of choice from Mod MomME {The wet bag that leaked on me didn’t hail from Mod MomME.} Wet bags are great for soiled cloth diapers, messy accidents, sweaty gym clothes and wet swimsuits.

RULES: You must be at least 18 years old and have a U.S. shipping address. No P.O. boxes please. One entry per email address.

TO ENTER: Leave a comment on this post proclaiming “PEEYEW!”

DEADLINE: Enter before noon EST on Monday, June 10th. One random winner will be chosen and announced later that same day.

WHILE YOU’RE AT IT: Since we’re talking cloth diapers today…any tips for fellow cloth diaperers out there? I shared my thoughts here.

PEEYEW!!

We just started researching cloth diapers. Great article to get us started, thank you!

PEEYEW!

Get on a schedule. If you know you have to wash diapers every other day – you won’t run out. Cold rinse, hot wash, cold rinse then dry.

“PEEYEW!” I admit cloth diapering isn’t for everyone, but for anyone considering it, I have to encourage you that it is so much easier than it seems. With our first daughter, I almost chickened out at the last second and I’m so glad I didn’t. We’ve saved so much money, and honestly, it’s nice to just throw a load of wash in, rather than panic about getting out of the house to get more diapers. I also use disposables from time to time, which takes the stress away. It doesn’t have to be all or nothing. I will add though, that we use about 25+ bum genius 4.0 pockets, and it is really nice to have extras and not be in such a hurry to wash. At almost 2 years, they still seem as good as new, and we will be using them for Baby #2 coming this summer.

PEEYEW!! Try out a few types first to see what you like and what fits your baby well. We use BumGenius Elementals for day and Thirsties DUO AIO with an extra insert at night, no leaks!

PEEYEW! I wish I had a gem of wisdom regarding cloth diapering but I haven’t had to change a diaper in about 9 years. I do wish I would have known more about cloth diapering when my babies were babies, I am thinking of all of the money I could have saved, along with a landfill or two.

I’m pregnant with my first and am due in October. My husband and I have decided that we’re going to use cloth diapers. Your post today was so helpful!

PEEYEW!!! My daughter loves to take her clothes off including her yucky messy diapers.. a mess bag would be perfect!!!! No advice on cloth diapers, but advice on night time clothes removal by a 2 year old.. zipper pjs with the feet cut off -put on backwards.. :) Works like a charm..

reply )

06.June.2013

PEEYEW! I have a black wet bag that was gifted to me and OH SO BORING. I would love a cute colorful one instead!

I use the disposable liners for #2 and that has made all the difference in ease of use. I also use disposables at night to avoid leaks. Hey, I do what I can when I can…

“PEEYEW!” No kids yet..unless you count the dog :)

PEEYEW! No kids yet, but my friends with the cloth diapers all seem to like Bum Genius better than Fuzzi Bunz.

PEEYEW! I just found out that I am pregnant with our first so I’m pretty new to the cloth diaper conversation. But I’m definitely interested!

I’m expecting my first in 6 weeks and my husband and I would love to try cloth diapering. We have a few things from my sister to get us started but this would be awesome! So cute :)

PEEYEW!! I have never used cloth diapers. Maybe in the future!

06.June.2013

PEEYEW! Can’t wait to start using cloth diapers!! I’ve spent my afternoon researching and I’m finding that the more I learn, the more I want to use cloth diapers!

06.June.2013

PEEYEW!

It’s been a year since we’ve used cloth and are now gearing up for number 2 this fall. I need to pull out our diapers and research how to wash/strip/care for them again!

06.June.2013

PEEYEW!
We went all in and use flats with covers and we make our own detergent. It’s much easier than I thought it would be. Snappie fasteners are great. Just make sure your rash cream is safe for cloth diapers or it will build up on the diapers and they won’t be as absorbent.

06.June.2013

PEEYEW!
Not a cloth diaper user, but I am mom to a heavy-duty spitter, so we’re always having to go through clothing / bib changes.. a wet bag would be great!

My best advice for CDing is to give yourself the freedom to be flexible. Like your choice to wait until 3 months, I didn’t use CDs until my daughter was 6 weeks. With baby #2 (due in September!), if eel comfortable starting with cloth right away. But I’m glad I let myself ease into it (and to se disposables whenever/whyever after that)at first. No reason to put more pressure on ourselves!

reply )

PEEYEW! Would love one of these for my 3 month old!!!

06.June.2013

PEEYEW! Just found out and we need a lot of stuff fast – and I am all for anything reuseable!

PEEYEW! No cloth diapers here!

PEEYEW!! I am 12 weeks with my first, so I have no advice :) But I would love to hear more about cloth diaper options!

06.June.2013

PEEYEW! I would love this for my new grand baby that is coming in August!!

reply )

06.June.2013

Peeyew! I am dying to cloth diaper my second (currently expected) kiddo. I would have with my first, if only we didn’t rely on a public laundry room at the time.

reply )

06.June.2013

PEEYEW! My advice is to be flexible – life is so much easier when you can toss a disposable every once in awhile – or let extended family use disposables when they are on babysitting duty!

06.June.2013

Peeyew!

I got nuthin’–I’d be using this for swim suits :-)

06.June.2013

PEEYEW!

We just broke the zipper off of our favorite wet bag – I’d love a snazzy new bag!

And our diaper routine is very much like yours… we love the Bum Genius Brand!

My husband and I are trying to conceive and would love to cloth diaper someday so this will come in handy! Thanks for the info on the cloth diapers.

I don’t have kids yet, but hope to try cloth when the time comes! Thanks for the info! :)

PEEYEW! similar cloth experience here. we use disposables for trips and overnight. i used charlie’s soap when i first started, but then started making my own which also works great. i prefer to use prefolds and covers instead of all-in-ones, but they are definitely convenient. I’ve used many brands and like bumgenius, fuzzibunz, and thirsties best. having used some of my diapers on 3 children i will say that the velcro closures don’t hold up as well as all snap diapers. cloth can be scary at first and you might cringe every time you dunk (or spray) the poo, but it really is worth it! thanks for the giveaway!

Due with our first in September and looking forward to a cute cloth diaper bottomed boy!

PEEYEW! No cloth diaper experience here, sorry!

PEEYEW! Love cloth diapering, I’ve never regretted it. I highly recommend buying used diapers for even more cost savings, as well as a way to try different styles. It was a great way for me to experiment and find our perfect nighttime diapering system–fitted diaper with wool cover.

Peeyew! I love cloth diapers.

PEEYEW!!
I am currently cloth diapering my second baby who is 7 months old! This has been fantastic because it has been free- she uses all of big brother’s diapers that were still in excellent (like new!) condition! Our current favorite is the Bum Genius 4.0 – and we could always use a new wet bag!! <3

PEEYEW!

I just had my third baby, but this is my first experience with cloth diapering. I’ve been trying several different brands and have finally committed to FuzziBunz, but I still have so much to learn, so I’m looking forward to reading through the comments!

PEEYEW!

My little lady (and first born) is 7 months, and we started cloth diapering when she was about 4 months. We’re only a few months in, but we love cloth! My tip would be to not over-think the washing routine. A rinse, a wash, and then another rinse works really well for us. Also, don’t let poo diapers turn you off! Whether you’re cloth diapering or not you’re bound to get poop on you.

06.June.2013

PEEYEW! We’re Bum Genius users too and I love them! These wetbags are adorable and would be perfect for out and about. At home we use a 5 gallon bucket from Lowes that I put a gamma lid on- works great (don’t have to worry about leaks, contains stink, and the lid screws easily on and off).

PEEYEW!
I don’t have any kiddos or cloth diapering advice (yet), but I have some friends who talked about joining funds to buy newborn-size cloth diapers to share, since you go through so many at first but the babies don’t stay that size for long.

06.June.2013

PEEYEW!
I am planning to use cloth diapers for our first kid (I am at 26wk now). No one around me has used cloth diaper and they think it is a lot of work.
I was raised using cloth diapers and my mom thinks it is great!

Peeyew!
I also use bumGenius all in ones for my 6 month old daughter. I love them. We basically have the same routine but we use Nellie’s wash powder. I like it.

PEEYEW! My husband and I are expecting our first baby in September and plan on using cloth diapers – this info (and hopefully the wetbag!) will be very useful for us.

PEEYEW!

We love our PlanetWise wet bags and pail liners. Try a variety of diapers. Turns out my daughter is sensitive to microfiber so I had to switch to natural fibers. My favorite are the swaddlebees/blueberry simplex OS AIO; but since they are pricey we have a lot of the Grovia AIO. Also, for those that are poop adverse, we got a Potty Pail (http://www.pottypail.com/), which helps. It could be DIY for much cheaper. I also second that 24 diapers is a good number. I got a bunch of our diapers second hand or from seconds and clearance sales to help with cost.

06.June.2013

PEEYEW!!! First time expectant mom here! Our plan is very similar to yours, cloth diaper when we can and just not feel bad when we can’t.

reply )

06.June.2013

PEEYEW! I don’t have any little ones yet, but I’ve definitely noticed the trend of cloth diapering and it’s something I’d consider trying. :)
