FOR THE HEAVY WETTER

Have you ever put a fresh diaper on your babe, only to have them pee right through it within an hour? If the answer is yes, you might have a little one who just likes to keep their bladder empty! (And really, can you blame them?!)

For this situation, there are a couple really awesome insert combinations that you can use to help absorb more and avoid leaking between changes.

#1 – Small Charcoal Insert on top of a large Bamboo Insert

This combination is taking advantage of the super absorbing power of our Bamboo Inserts, which can hold up to 300ml of liquid, and the stay-dry power of our Charcoal Inserts.

Together, they will provide up to 2-3 hours worth of comfort and absorption for your little one.

No more waking up with soaking wet clothes after nap time! Woohoo!

I know you’re probably sitting over there thinking “lol what the heck did I just read.” Don’t worry, it’s actually more simple than it seems!

This is just taking the first method, and adding even more absorbing power to it.

A combination like this one is for the ultimate heavy wetter, especially if you choose to use both Bamboo Inserts. Talk about your inserts working triple duty!

ULTIMATE OVERNIGHT SOLUTION

When I first started cloth diapering, we went 100% full in. That means that from Day 1, we decided to use our cloth overnight. This came with some trial and error to see what worked best for the way that our daughter, Dawson, slept.

Every once in awhile we need to adjust our overnight combination to keep up with her growth and movement as she sleeps, but I would have LOVED to have had this simple little trick to get us started.

#1 – Overnight Inserts

We actually specially design inserts with a waterproof PUL backing that are twice as thick, to help contain everything that comes out of your sweet little babe as they sleep.

These bad boys absorb liquid quickly, and the elastic ruching on the sides help to make sure that no matter what position your child is sleeping in, everything will stay nicely contained within the diaper.

#2 – Add a Bamboo Booster!

Do you find that even though you’re already using the Overnight Inserts, somehow your child still finds a way to completely soak them through?

This is where our incredibly well designed Bamboo Boosters come in handy! These are great for any of those times that you need a little bit of a ‘boost’ in absorbency.

Whether it’s adding to your overnight diapering combination, or on top of the regular Charcoal Inserts to extend the length of time between changes, you’ll find that these handy little inserts are a lifesaver.

Just make sure to put the blue side against your little ones tush to keep them feeling dry!

** Bonus tip: They were specifically designed with postpartum moms in mind. Use them while you’re recovering from childbirth as an eco friendly, reusable postpartum pad.

POOP. SO MUCH POOP.

When whoever came up with the saying that “all babies do is eat, sleep and poop”, really should have added some emphasis on poop.

The reality of having a child is that no matter what you do, you spend a good chunk of your day every single day dealing with poop.

You’re a poop master, if you will.

Actually, dealing with poop is a huge reason that a lot of people are turned off by cloth diapering. There’s a big misconception floating around that if you’re cloth diapering, you need to touch poop (how many more times can I say poop) with your bare hands all the time.

Wrong.

It can actually be no different from someone using disposable diapers! And here’s how you do it…

#1 – Flushable Liners

These guys will absorb liquid extremely quickly, and are not designed to be used alone. However, they are magic when added on top of any type of liner!

When your little one goes #2, just pick up the entire insert and dispose of it responsibly. (For some areas, that means flushing. For others, putting it into the garbage/compost is the way to go. Make sure you consult with your cities/towns specifications.)

It’s as easy as that.

#2 – Bamboo Stay Dry Liners

These are dual purpose and one of our most popular products! Not only will they add some extra stay-dry power to any diaper, but they also act as a reusable poop liner!

Just pick it up out of the diaper, give it a little dunk in the toilet to remove any waste, and then wash them with the rest of your diapers!
