UPDATE regarding our overnight rash issues with prefolds and my Bummis Beautiful Basics pack

I added this to the original post, however, I wanted to make it a separate post too in case you have already read this review and don't look at it again.

Some babies though will need a stay dry liner (these liners are rather inexpensive) to wick the urine away from … [Read more...]

Cloth Wipes Challenge Day #16

It's day 16 of the cloth wipes challenge. I have to admit I failed the other day. I AM A FAILURE. We had gone to my in-laws for a cookout and I did good, I took the cloth wipes and spray bottle there in the diaper bag.
