Each year my son’s school holds The Great American Teach-In event- it’s the new PC version of “Career Day” since it also allows parents/caregivers without employment to attend and share about their hobbies too.

What started out as a little hashtag to promote Spray Pal’s business (and cloth diapering at large) during an Intuit Superbowl Commercial Contest in 2013 has turned into one of the most popular cloth diapering mantras of all time. I’ve been thinking about the phrase, and how it’s grown […]

I did so I asked mine and their interview is one of DDL’s most beloved posts of all time. (Watch an interview with my grandparents about cloth diapering in the 50’s) I got to thinking- what can […]

Eventually every diaper that has elastic will lose its stretch (become relaxed) and will need a new elastics to be as functional as before. A diaper’s lifespan can be 1.5-3+ years before needing repairs; this will vary based on your washing/drying routine […]

This post may contain affiliate links. A solid 7 days late but it’s better than never! Longtime readers of DDL know that my sons each get a special video recapping their year for their birthday and a special photo. Each video takes on average 12+ hours to edit, usually because I stare at the screen and push clips around until finally something clicks and I discover my themes. Every year is different just as each child is unique. This year things never did “click” as I had hoped. I picked out the music 3 weeks ago and prepared my clips 2 weeks ago then just stared and rearranged waiting for my instincts to kick in and edit. It’s hard to explain but usually I will fall into an editing trance and things happen with little effort. This video was anything but. Maybe the mama in me isn’t ready to celebrate […]

Most of us never act on our business ideas at such a young age, but then there are the ones who do. Sierra Levanto is one of those people and her cloth diapers are seeking funding on Kickstarter. I just learned about this new Kickstarter for a line of cloth diapers called PandaBaby. While this may seem ordinary enough that a cloth diaper brand crowd funds this is far from ordinary. The entrpreneur is 17 years old and the diapering experience she has is from babysitting. We all know people can be (or become) experts on a topic without living them. Take TheBabyGuyNYC who is a parenting product expert but has no children, though he does have lots of kid […]

This post may contain affiliate links. In 2009 I attended my very first ABC Kids Expo as media for Dirty Diaper Laundry. Looking back I can’t believe that a. they approved my tiny little blog as media (what were they thinking?!) and b. that I was ballsy enough to fly solo with my 9 month old for an enormous expo. The ABC Kids Expo is a trade only event that caters to the juvenile products market. Everything from car seats, breast pumps, clothing, diapers, and anything in between is there. The BIG brands (think Graco) are there along with first year exhibitors. It’s over a MILLION square feet of booths and it’s EXHAUSTING but a lot of fun! The 2015 expo will be my 5th event and it never gets easier. As a buyer or media attending the show it’s not only mentally taxing but physically exhausting as well. With […]

Having used the previous versions of the Fuzzibunz One Size, including the most recent, I am happy to see them back to a rectangular insert. The contoured microfiber inserts that came with the last version were very hard to stuff. The new product line-up also includes their famous sized pocket diapers, their first year diaper that has adjustments like the One Size we reviewed but in an overall smaller size, and other accessories. Their newly re-designed website is very easy to use! I loved that it asks the viewer if they’re an experienced cloth diapering parent or new and tailors the information based on that information. For their new prints Fuzzibunz kept it sweet with bright and happy designs like […]

This post may contain affiliate links. With her birthday right around the corner, I am trying very hard these days to remind Harper to clean up her toys when she is done. We have begun a tedious but effective routine, after she removes a toy and plays with it, I repeatedly remind her to put it away before taking out another toy or moving on to some other game. Sometimes she gets as exasperated as I secretly feel, but it is worth it to not spend an hour on her room each night. My favorite part is when I give her simple, clear, and attainable instructions and she follows through. When she finishes, I jump up and down like a lunatic and sing a made up song about how happy I am her room is clean and there’s enough space to dance. We dance in circles on the rug and […]

On September 28 the cloth diaper community came together to support Giving Diapers, Giving Hope in the form of the first-ever telethon using the new social network Periscope. Periscope is an app that allows anyone to broadcast live video from anywhere in the world to anyone! The idea to utilize this fun new social media platform was inspired by BALM Baby and grew to include over 30 brands/retailers/media. So many people signed up to raise money for Giving Diapers, Giving Hope that the event lasted a staggering 17+ hours! Sept 28 also marked the first day of National Diaper Need Awareness Week. I kicked it off at 10 minutes til 9 AM EST and closed it (even though TheBabyGuyNYC was still broadcasting his bedtime story #afterdark finale) at around 2:00 AM EST. Each hour two members of the cloth diaper community held their own […]

The new diapers added many features and they are welcome improvements to an already beloved diaper design. The two new prints, Maritime and Chantilly, have Lara and myself falling in love! SWOON! As luck would have it, when I filmed this review several weeks ago I was wearing a nail polish color that perfectly coordinated so if you win this package you’ll need to find and buy OPI’s “Can’t Find My Czechbook.” You love, right? How could you not? Want to know more about the new Funky Fluff Lux line? The details as conveyed by Funky Fluff: Both Stay Dry & Bamboo Diaper Systems will come with new redesigned LUX Bamboo terry inserts: Both small & large soakers have a contoured shape […]

This post may contain affiliate links. Fall marks the beginning of cooler temperatures for most of the country, as folks dig out their boots and scarves. For me it was only weeks ago that I bothered taking the cover off the pool as it is finally a reasonable temperature for my baby to be out in the sun every day. I wish I had the cash to spring for one of those fancy outdoor patios made of compressed rubber pavers, our backyard is mostly concrete and with Autumn learning to walk I get very nervous letting her play and explore. Harper doesn’t know it yet, but my husband is planning to build her a wooden deck/sunporch/platform for her playhouse to keep it from collecting rain water on her outdoor rug and to provide a sense of structure in a large yard. I have my own plans to update her house, […]
