Moraki Cloth Diapers: Cute, Functional, Absorbent and Made in the USA!

Moraki Cloth Diapers: Cute, Functional, Absorbent and Made in the USA!

Moraki Cloth Diapers: Yes, that’s pronounced Mor – rocky. Lately, Moraki diapers have been popping up in the cloth diaper community. Several bloggers have tried them out and now it’s my turn. I started my cloth diaper journey solely as a pocket diaper user back in 2008. I didn’t know anything other than the pocket diaper. Unfortunately, since having my second child I have started despising pocket diapers. It’s nothing against pockets themselves it has to do with the amount of laundry one more child adds onto my list of never-ending household chores. Stuffing pockets is annoying which is why I really like Moraki’s easy one size all-in-2 (AI2)/pocket diaper. It’s simple: With Moraki’s (that’s pronounced Mor – rocky according to their Facebook page) cloth diaper you have the choice between using it as an AI2 or a pocket diaper. The inserts boast of a unique Fold-to-Fit™ system made of 55% hemp and 45% organic cotton and is circular shaped so that the insert dries quickly. You have the option of using Moraki’s small, medium or onesize insert. The possibilities are endless! You have the option of using the diaper as an AI2 by laying the … Continue reading

Geffen Baby Jersey Prefold Cloth Diaper Review

Geffen Baby Jersey Prefold Cloth Diaper Review

I’m a true believer in beautiful, 100% natural diapering options for my little ones, so I had to say yes when Maria at Geffen Baby asked if I wanted to try one of their jersey prefolds. We received a size medium/large (6 to 12 months) which is made with 4 layers of an ultra soft combed organic hemp (60%)/cotton (40%) blend that feels like a much-loved tee shirt. As you might already know, hemp is an ideal diapering fabric because it’s super thirsty and also naturally anti-microbial. Even better, Geffen prefolds are made right here in the USA. After receiving our Geffen prefold, I prepped it by washing three times in hot to remove the natural oils from the fabric. It measured about 15.5 x 18 before washing and 13 x 16.5 after. I trifolded it in a Flip cover and put on Susanna for her nap time. It fit very nicely and was just as trim as a Flip organic. It was good and soaked when she woke up, but held all the wetness in. Laundering was pretty straightforward, and I noticed that like some of the other hemp inserts in our stash it took about … Continue reading

Adventures in Thong Wearing

Adventures in Thong Wearing

I originally titled this post “Lunapads Thong Pantyliner Product Review”.  Just before I hit ‘post’ I decided I needed to change the title. It sounded WAY BORING. As many of you might know me I am a bit ‘animated’ so I thought the “Adventures in Thong Wearing” would get a better pick-up! I never liked pads for my period. No offense to those of you that do but I just never liked them.  This post might a little ‘TMI’ (too much information) so if you are uncomfortable with me talking about my ‘lady bits’ or ‘girly parts’ I completely understand if you want to stop reading now. During the work day I am very casual. Jeans and a comfy fleece pull-over; maybe a t-shirt with holes in it! (Now when I attend a show I put my professional clothes on!) I don’t spend much on clothes and like to find deals on eBay, goodwill, or consignment shops. One thing I do splurge on is my under-garments and coffee. Hold on there Kelly…(you might be saying) I really don’t need to know what is under your clothing. Well… to give you … Continue reading

Lunette Menstrual Cup Product Review

Lunette Menstrual Cup Product Review

“The Kinda Cup No One Wants To Talk About…” ….except apparently me. Because I love mine. You know, “The Cup”. For MEN-STRU-A-TION (said like my 5th grade Sex Ed teacher said it). Okay, I’ve been using mine for a over a year now, but when I FIRST heard of “The Cup”, I heard it with the dun-dun-DUUUNNNNNN!!!! scary music after it. I mean, who DOES that? Well, now I do. I first tried the Diva Cup, and you know… it was kind of an epic failure for the first couple of months. And the kind of frustrating thing about it was that you had to wait a whole month to try again if you couldn’t get it right. But the funny thing was, I started really looking FORWARD to that horrible Aunt Flo visiting. I *WANTED* to try again. But I used my mama cloth (seriously, if you’re not even using THAT at this point, you need to get on the ball) as backup, and at least the Diva Cup was doing SOMETHING, although that backup was needed. Well, so I thought I’d try a different cup- so I got … Continue reading

Project Pomona Cloth Diaper Pants Product Review

Project Pomona Cloth Diaper Pants Product Review

Ohhhhh, how skeptical I am.  Honestly, I was not sure what I would think of these Pomona Pants.  They looked super cute, but how would they actually function?   Well, let me tell you… you NEED a pair.   I am in love.   And my daughter loves them, too!  WHY did I not get these when we were in cloth full-time?  They work PERFECTLY with cloth diapers!  And even though my daughter is in undies during the day now, these have been so handy for her- easy to pull up and down, adjustable… They’d be great for learning to potty-train, too!   I received the Pomona Pants- these are made to grow with your baby.  They’re adjustable in the waist (with snaps- like on diapers), and they also have cute prints at the legs that can be rolled up or let down to accommodate your baby’s growing body.  They’re super simple to unsnap, so they are great for diaper changes.  Plus, there is extra room in the rear to allow them to cover a cloth diaper easily.   And they’re made in the USA!   Oh, and my daughter … Continue reading

Lambie Love Wool Soaker Product Review

Lambie Love Wool Soaker Product Review

Once upon a time, I used wool for two babies for a year… full-time.  I used wool covers, wool shorties, wool longies.  I used interlock wool, recycled wool, knit and crocheted wool.  I know wool. I received my Lambie Love wool soaker in the mail, and when I opened the package- even before taking the wool out- I loved it.  It smelled so nice!  Oh, how I adore wool that comes washed and ready to use!!!  <3 Well, I took the wool out and petted it.  Oh, the softness.  And this recycled wool has one of my required features- interlock waist/legs!  It also has the reinforced wet zone I look for.  AND, she hand-dyes the interlock to match the wool.  Interlock is soft and stretchy, and creates a great fit around the legs and the waist.  My daughter is now 27 pounds, and the medium fits her perfectly- and I tried it over her bulky trainer.  The soaker is soft all around- no rough-sewn edges at the legs or waist to cause irritation. Heather, the owner and creator of Lambie Love, makes the wool cloth diaper covers out of repurposed/upcycled … Continue reading

AMP One-Size Duo Pocket Cloth Diaper Product Review

AMP One-Size Duo Pocket Cloth Diaper Product Review

I will admit something here… I had been hearing about the AMP diapers for YEARS and I had never tried one.  Not because I didn’t want to… it just never happened.  Until now! I was recently able to try the One Size Duo Pocket.  I LOVE the one-size function of it, I LOVE the colors (there are 25!), and have you seen the prints???  I definitely need a Very Cherry or Serendipity for my girl! The design is great- I love the gentle elastic at the sides, and the elastic at the waist in front.  The rise stays snapped down and doesn’t get loose in the middle to create a bunch in the front when set to the middle or smallest setting.  The pocket is in the front, which isn’t something I usually look for, but have found works GREAT at keeping hands mess-free.  ;)  These are made to fit from 7-38 pounds, and I can see that being a realistic range! The insert is one I want more of.  It is made of 70% bamboo and 30% cotton- very soft, and very absorbent.  I don’t even stuff the pocket- … Continue reading

Cloth Training Pants: A Month in Review

Cloth Training Pants: A Month in Review

My son is potty-trained! Yay! (sob) I miss his diapers… but I have had so much fun with trainers! And I’ve tried lots. So let’s compare, shall we? I used GroVia My Choice Trainers, Flip Trainers, Super Undies Pocket Potty Trainers, FuzziBunz Trickle Free Trainers, Blueberry Trainers, and EcoPosh Recycled Organic Trainers. I also used a couple of work-at-home mom trainers by Dippee Dypees. GroVia: These trainers are really nice because of the pocket for stuffing. My son was a heavy wetter, and I was able to stuff these with a Flip Organic insert or 2 of the GroVia boosters and it held for him. The inside has hemp already sewn in. The benefit of the pocket is that the inserts will stay in place when you pull these up and down- that’s a huge bonus. The GroVias are narrow-cut like the GroVia diapers, but they’re a good fit on my 34-pound guy- although we needed the larger side panels to allow him to pull the trainers up and down. These also unsnap at the sides- and that is a NECESSITY when your little one is still having poo accidents, … Continue reading

Ones & Twos All-in-One Cloth Diaper Product Review

Ones & Twos All-in-One Cloth Diaper Product Review

What Cloth Diaper is Budget Friendly, Easy and Works? There are many cloth diapers that fall into one or even two of these categories. But, all three is a great find. Of course, it’s important to remember that these categories are highly subjective. I’m looking at it from the angle of a brand new cloth diaper parent. (new parent comments italicized) All I’ve ever used before is a snap-on/snap-off disposable diaper.  Give me something just as easy but saves me money. Ones & Twos All-in-One (AIO) is your solution. Is it really budget friendly? At $16.95 each, this one-sized cloth diaper will fit your child from about 12ish lbs to 35ish lbs (very exact range ) If you purchase 20 of them that would cost you $339.  I haven’t purchased disposable diapers in a very long time but on Amazon the cheapest ones were $0.17/each. $339 buys you (at 10 diapers a day) 199 days of diapers.  I don’t know many babies that are out of diapers before 730 days- that’s 2 years. 20 Ones & Twos AIO cloth diapers can be used for years.  Sure, you’ll have the occasional … Continue reading

Monkey Foot Designs Wet Bag Product Review PLUS 15% off coupon!

Monkey Foot Designs Wet Bag Product Review PLUS 15% off coupon!

“A Wet Bag is Just a Wet Bag… Unless it’s a Monkey Foot Designs!” I am somewhat of a wet bag junkie.  I didn’t set out to be one… I just really love the patterns, and wet bags are just so HANDY! I’ve tried lots of brands, and liked some more than others.  But I never truly LOVED a wet bag until I tried Monkey Foot Designs.  That there is true love, folks. First, picking a print is really hard.  Like, super hard.  They are all so beautiful!  But when you finally pick one and you receive your bag, the real magic begins. I use my wet bags for trips out of the house usually, and I use a pail at home.  Well, I’ve been using less diapers now that my son is potty-trained, so I’ve been trying out wet bags at home.  But the problem with a wet bag is that when you spray a diaper, it’s really wet.  And when you put a bunch of really wet diapers in a wet bag, eventually it leaks. Except the Monkey Foot Designs.  *swoon*  These bags don’t leak, even when I … Continue reading
