At the Great Cloth Diaper Change this year in Calgary, I had a chance to chat with the owner of Babes In Arms– a fantastic little Calgary babywearing shop with tons of great natural parenting products. I mentioned that we were California-bound and needing a second carrier for our Toddler, and that my husband needed something supportive. William, the shop’s owner, suggested that I borrow their Kinderpack to try and review. He promised that the straps would be wide, well padded and cpmfortable. He was ot wrong! We used this carrier all day at Disneyland, and it was just perfect!
It’s day 4 of the #flatschallenge and honestly, I’m not really finding it difficult at all. Blogging about it, editing graphics, that’s the hard part, haha! I’m not bothered by the diaper changes and handwashing and it’s fit into my week no problem. Although, unlike many others doing the challenge, I was every other day. Not daily.
Last year my favourite fold was the origami fold. I am using that a fair bit this year too, along with the Crooked Cape fold that I showed on youtube a while back, but the fold I’m truly embracing is the Padfold! The simple, quick, padfolded flat cloth diaper has really won me over.
It’s day two of the #flatschallenge and today’s prompt is “What’s in you stash? How much did it cost?” So, I’m going to breakdown what I’ll be using this week for the challenge. I’m very happy with this little stash! It includes some low cost cotton muslin flats, as well as some more luxurious stretchy bamboo flats.
I’m participating in the 2018 Flats and Handwashing Challenge, so I wanted to do a giveaway for you guys to celebrate! But I know Flat diapers can be intimidating for some people, and I found a great diaper to giveaway that might just make flats less scary.
1 in 3 American families cannot afford to diaper their babies. The Flats and Handwashing Challenge aims to bring awareness to a very real and doable diapering solution that is affordable, and easier than it looks.
Last year we did the Flats and Handwashing Challenge for the first time; it was an awesome experience! I’m excited to get going again on Monday May 14th for our next Flats Challenge. For one week I will pare down my extensive cloth diaper stash to just Flat Diapers and Cloth Diaper Covers. And most importantly, for that entire week I will forego my whirlpool front load washer and dryer and use only a Bucket, Plunger, Detergent and a Drying rack!
We are currently in California visiting family. It was a 3 hour flight to get here, and because we are renting a car while we are here we decided to bring our carseats. I also knew that my two children, ages 3 and 1, would not sit still for that long on a flight without being strapped into a 5 point harness.
