My little guy graduated from adorable cloth diapers to underwear last week, which led me to reflect on some of my favorite diapers throughout the years. With almost three years of cloth diapering under my belt, having tried every cloth diaper style, I can say that I definitely have favorites. My disclaimer is that this is my own list of the best cloth diapers for boys, as I’ve not tried every diaper on the market. From flats to all-in-one (AIO) cloth diapers, I’m discussing my picks for the best cloth diapers for boys.

Having attended MommyCon in Philadelphia the first year, I consider myself a MommCon Pro!

What’s even more exciting is that I’ve been given a 2015 MommyCon promo code to pass ticket savings on to you, my readers: LOWREN15
I’ve written a post, filled with accessories you don’t need to cloth diaper, but I want to cover those cloth diapering accessories you can’t have enough of. In other words, if you find a good sale, or come across a great deal, you can buy as much or as many of these items as you can, with absolutely no remorse; trust me, you’ll put them to good use!
With MommyCon 2015 kicking off in Chicago on February 21st, excitement is brewing!

It’s that time of year again, my friends! You know, that time when you shop for the perfect holiday diaper for your little one! Glow Bugs has released their 2015 “Ugly Sweater” print, which is not so ugly after all, in this adorable snowman winter scene. The best things about this diaper is it’s non-denominational and can be worn all winter long (instead of just for holiday photos).
Now for the “cool” part (see what I did there?) — Glow Bugs Cloth Diapers is giving customers their holiday diaper FREE with every package purchase! Even better, if you use my exclusive Glow Bug Cloth Diapers COUPON CODE (first time customers only), you can save 5% and still receive a FREE Ugly Sweater diaper! So, what are you waiting for?
I had the great fortune to name one of the diapers in Glow Bug Cloth Diapers’ Earth Fest Collection last spring (Zevron), and recently named a diaper in their 2015 Brainiac Collection (High Fidelity). If you haven’t participated in Glow Bug’s Name This Print contest, be sure to follow them on Facebook so that you can join in the fun with their next collection!
This post is geared towards those families who wish to take a simplistic and minimalist approach to cloth diapering, as I did. Retailers are going to hate me for this, but here goes….
After cloth diapering for two and a half years, I’ve seen my share of cloth diaper trends and accessories, and have amassed a great deal of simplistic cloth diapering experience. If you view cloth diapers as pee and poop catchers (that will save you money in the long run), and wish to take a minimalist approach to cloth diapering, this piece is for you.
I have to admit, I went ‘old school’ when I began cloth diapering two and a half years ago. In a money saving effort, I decided to use prefolds and covers to cloth diaper our son. Shoot, if it worked for my mom, it could work for me, right?
Hi, there! I’m Sara, a recovering lawyer addicted to DIY projects and babywearing. When I’m not doing diaper laundry, you can find me gabbing over at my blog, Embrace My Space, where I share my love for bold color, the coast and just a bit of quirk. Please feel free to stop by to join me in my journey of falling in love with my home, one space at a time.
I recently posted a question on my Facebook page about a brand of environmentally friendly disposable diapers. One friend caught me off guard with her response: “I’m surprised you haven’t switched to cloth!” Cloth diapers, what!?! So, yeah, I babywear, breastfeed, blend my own baby food and string Baltic amber beads around my son’s neck. But I had yet to consider cloth diapering, an activity of many moms with parenting mindsets similar to my own. After some research I got really excited about giving cloth a try! Despite this enthusiasm, I was reluctant to start because I worried about how my already unpredictable schedule as a first time mom would be disrupted by this new method of catching my baby’s poop.
If you’ve stumbled upon this post, you’re probably intrigued by the benefits of cloth diapering –environmentally friendly, easy on your wallet, gentle on your baby’s bum and undeniably cute – yet hesitant to give up the convenience of disposables. After eight months of using disposables, I’m happy to say I jumped head first into cloth and haven’t looked back. Like any new parenting venture there’s a learning curve at the beginning, but switching to cloth won’t turn your world upside down if you start out with the right mindset! I’m here to share a few things I learned as a cloth diapering latecomer to help prepare you to switch to cloth with fewer growing pains! [Read more…]
The cloth diapering community is comprised of a unique collection of families who often share similar parenting philosophies. Because cloth diapering is not yet mainstream, there is almost always a connection made when one cloth diaperer encounters another while out and about. Having just purchased limited edition prints for the first time last night, despite vowing never to do so AND having a potty training toddler with no baby on the horizon, I had a chuckle to myself when I thought about all of the funny things we cloth diapering parents do. I came up with these 15 cloth diapering “truths”:
If you’ve been hanging out in cloth diaper circles for any amount of time, you’re sure to have heard of Project Pomona. Cloth diapering parents are lucky to have the inside scoop on Project Pomona’s amazing pants and shorts, but the truth is that their clothing is perfect for every type of diapered bum. I bought Declan his first pair of Project Pomona jeans last fall and I love how great they fit his fluffy [and now non-fluffy] bum. Because D’s so lean, we’ve not had many issues with pants [not fitting], but a couple of favorite pairs of Gap jeans did give him that strange “man belly” look (you know, the one where a man’s stomach looks like a woman’s in pants). Enter Project Pomona.
