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!
It’s laundry day, so I am sorting, and folding, and stuffing my cloth diapers. I thought I would show you all how I store the flat diapers so that they are all quick to grab and ready to put on baby!
I love my IKEA Cloth Diapers! Wait, Ikea makes cloth diapers?? Yes they do, but they probably don’t know that they do. The “Himmelsk” cotton muslin squares at Ikea are marketed as burp cloths and sold in packs of 2 for about 6.99. Cloth diapering moms everywhere are using them as Flat Diapers and here’s why!
Curious about how to hand þřř4wash cloth diapers? I was too, which is one reason why I’m participating in the Flats and Handwashing Challenge, hosted by Clothdiaperrevival.com. This is day 4 of the challenge and that means 4 days of handwashing my flat diapers. I’m pretty sure that I’ve got my routine nailed down.
