I’m unbelieveably tardy with this weeks show notes. Whoever decided to start a podcast in the summer whe I don’t have regular childcare and a million other “fun summer things” to do, was silly. #myhusband 

The audio lags, my apologies again. I’m learning this whole podcast/recording thing and my internet failed a little during the phone call with Annie.

3:12 – Dear Cloth Diaper Industry, I would love a train themed cloth diaper.

4:40 Meet Annie from Nerdy Mommas

Located: Treasure Coast of Florida
Lighthouse Kids is located South of Annie. 

Momma of 1, 4-year-old, and looking to grow her family one day again in the future.

Annie from Nerdy Mommas

6:58 – How Did you Get Into Cloth Diapering

Annie wanted to get into it at the start, but easily got overwhelmed with and decided to put it on the back burner. Her crunchy nature evolved into breastfeeding, babywearing and fustration of disposable diapers had her looking at cloth diapering.

Bought a stash of 10 pocket cloth diapers with microfibre and used 2-3 microfibre overnight in one pocket. Didn’t know there were other options like bamboo and hemp inserts. Eventually upgraded to 20 diapers. 

Annie was washing every day. She would use 8 diapers per day, she would do a simple 20 minute pre-wash, then a heavy duty wash, and tossed the diapers in the dryer before bed and would wake up to clean diapers.

It was nice to not stress about it.

When she got into hemp and bamboo it was nice to know you didn’t need a basketball on her butt for cloth diapering to work.

Annie got involved in a local co-op (not for profit) doing small orders for the ladies in town as it was advantageous.

Annie noticed a lack of support and quality in the cloth diapering community.

10:55 – Nerdy Momma’s Cloth Diaper Cut

Annie modified the cut, added bamboo inserts, 4 rise snaps for 4 sizings.

Bailey doesn’t really like microfibre either, you can read about that here. 

Noticed a lack of nerdy cloth diapers. There are a few nerdy co-ops but still a little bit of a lag in the industry for people to resonate with other people like her watching Anime, Futurama, Adult Swim. She loves being able to wake up and grab a cute cloth diaper like Harry Potter or other nerdy.

Blending of hobbies that lets you express yourself, and you can bond on things that aren’t Sesame Street.

13:56 Nerdy Momma Artwork

Sketches from Annie’s notebook and a friend of hers (another mom – Chelsea) helps digitize the artwork to be printed onto the fabric.

16:00 Manufacture

It’s difficult with things coming from different places. Everything is certified.

Really adamant about having a personal relationship with their company she works with. Wanted to ensure that she did her follow up that everything was quality control and met her expectations.

Annie does sew her own Cosplay and does costume commission. 

Prices for cloth diapers are totally legitimized, and hand making things is not cheap.

You can have quality. You can have nerdy. You can have an affordable stash.

The cost of cloth diapering can be discouraging for people, but at the end of the day if its made responsibility and it makes your life easier then it shouldn’t matter.  

Article about Hating Cloth Diapers – The hype of one brand isn’t always going to work for you. Try a little of everything. This is also one of my favourite themes.  Trying a few different things is important in motherhood from babywearing and beyond.

27:25 – Biggest Challenge Running Nerdy Momma’s

Providing content to people that is sound and creating information that isn’t the law. Cloth information should have wiggle room. There’s give and take, experimenting. Trying to be non confrontation in a confrontational world is hard especially to create a basis of trust in a world of lot individual cases.

You’re filling a super niche’d need which is awesome but also the big challenge.

Cloth Diaper Podcast with Sarah B

3:19 – Started Cloth Diapering from Friends.

Most of her stash is GlowBugs Cloth Diapers, bumGenius, Flip Covers, Couple Random.

4:03 – Bummis Green & Pink Cloth Diapers

4:28: What is your favourite cloth diaper

Glowbug & bumGenius Pocket Cloth Diapers

5:21: What’s your biggest cloth diaper challenge

Figuring out absorbency especially for overnight, and maybe just use disposables because its easy for overnight.

 

6:44: If you could design your own cloth diaper, what would it look like.

Sarah thinks there needs to be a paddlesport print, something with canoeing or mountain biking or more.

9:43: Toys in the Canoe

Tied the toys in, and only bring the toys that can get wet.

11:27 : What do you do when you go camping.

Couple days – we use pocket.

Back country, Sarah brings her Flip covers with g-diaper inserts (finds them on Amazon in Canada). She uses them because they are 100% compostable, and you can put them in your compost at home.  Sometimes she packs them home, sometimes they can be used in different types of the outhouse

Don’t mind my toddler dragging a chair across the kitchen floor in the background. 

Other disposable inserts that I’ve tried – Flip & GroVia, Charlie Banana.

14:25: Sunshine Coast Trail

Starts up in Powell River, she attempted because she sprained her ankle on Day 2 and rerouted to try a paddle trip instead – the Powell River Canoe route.  with a 5-month-old. 

Cloth Diaper on Paddle Board - Sarah B

16:59 – Goal is to try FST on the trail.

But really weather dependent and washing every couple of days.

— I bought the Scrubba bag for the Flats & Handwashing Challenge. 

Sarah used it on the trail, and family trips. She says its easier than using a plastic bag.

18:44 – You have to be willing to put in the extra work.

 

20:20 – If someone asks how to get started cloth diapering.

What type of diaper are they interested?

Are you trying to do it the cheapest way or the easiest way?

 

21: 37 – Tricky Washing Machine

According to FLU it’s a large washing machine barrel, and it makes it tough to fill it up to get a good wash. She needs to fill hers up 3/4 and uses her bigger stash of pocket cloth diapers.

22:50 – Funky Fluff & Bummis Announced they are closing.

Sad to see a quality cloth diaper leave the industry. There’s a lot of eb and flow in the cloth diaper industry and whether to stay open, close and/or sell.

Glowbug just changed to a new owner recently…

Bailey was trying to pronounce this brand – Kawaii

24:41 – Made in Canada Cloth Diapers

25:50 – Transition of Cloth Diaper Brands

How they use things on social media and some brands use brand reps, and some brands have zero social media presence (like Blueberry Diapers).

  • is it because of they a higher class brand?
  • is it because they are dramatic?

26:40 Edmonton Cloth Diaper Retailers

Not too many options.

27:35 What do you do when you’re not just a mom?

Sarah is a newborn, family, engagement photographer.

 

— Seriously, I apologise for the terrible sound quality. I promise I’ll get better so stick with me.

xx,

Bailey

An Interview with a Cloth Diaper Dad - Cloth Diapering - Podcasts for Moms

1:37 – Dad’s don’t really cloth diaper, eh?

Talking to dads about cloth diapering just isn’t a thing. It’s just not guy talk

3:11 – What’s your favourite cloth diaper?

I like stuff that takes prefolds or generic inserts – a.k.a cloth diaper covers.

Cloth Diaper Dad doesn’t like all in one cloth diapers or other complicated systems because of poop removal. He specifically mentions the bumGenius Elemental because of its internal design. 

Favourite Cloth Diaper for Dads: Nuggles Tuck-Wrap & Go Covers in a Size 2. Some of Nuggles products are made in Canada.

5:40 – What is the hardest thing about cloth diapering?

Dislike the Most: Eric doesn’t like the stinky bathroom. This is negotiable. We’ve tried a new cloth diaper system using a Mother-ease pail with mesh pail liner to reduce the stink.  He’s tired of stinky and after three years this is the first year he’s made serious complaints

. Biggest Challenge: What do I stick on this kids butt? Especially with all the choices to wear and the two different kids. It’s hard to know what will fit each kid. 

We are transitioning into underwear and potty training

When do you know you’re good to go [with underwear]?

Ready to transition into underwear from cloth training pants during the potty training experience. 

9: 45 – If there was one thing you could tell a cloth diaper sceptic dad what would it be?

Happy Wife, Happy Life.

It’s not that much laundry. Check out this laundry cheat sheet from Modern Bottom Babies to get your wash routine off on the right foot. 

He does most of the poop rinsing in the toilets.

11:47 – What’s the biggest drama you’ve ever heard about cloth diapering?

The lady with the diaper prints. Sometime in 2016, Blueberry Diapers began re-releasing exclusive prints run by retailers. While this was legal and within their contracts, it wasn’t necessarily the best move in regards to maintaining relationships and some brands cut off relationships with Blueberry Diapers. Ever since. Blueberry Diapers has an air of drama around it despite their amazing quality cloth diapers. #heresay.

13:53 – What are you looking forward to once we are done diapering?

Not having any diapers at all.

We are almost done. Pretty much done potty training our 3 year old, and one more year left with our youngest. Might have bribed the big kid to poop on the potty with hot wheels. #notanExpert. 

15:50 – Rapid Fire 5 Questions About Cloth Diapering

Question 1 – Name 3 Different Types of Cloth Diapers.

  • Prefold
  • Flat Cloth Diapers (Blanket)
  • All in One Cloth Diapers

Question 2 – Name 5 Different Brands of Cloth Diapers

Question 3 – Do you know any names of the cloth diaper prints or solids we own.

I have the names I would call them versus what they should actually be called. 

  • Funky Fluff – Germs
  • bumGenius – Pirates
  • GroVia – Old Grandmother Couch – Ophelia
  • Blueberry – Halloween – BooBerry
  • bumGenius – Birds – Harper

Can you Name These Cloth Diapers?

Question 4 – What’s that thing you use to keep a flat closed on a baby?

Errr. No.

Answer: Snappi.

Question 5 – Can you name 3 Cloth Diaper Retailers

Learn more about our trip out East to Central Canada.

Mother-ease Factory

23:00 – What’s you’re one wish for the cloth diaper future?

I would hope cloth diapering continues to be more mainstream.

How to Choose a Cloth Diaper Type

Start with a print or pattern you love and go from there.

Every cloth diaper has a loyal fan base, and you really dont know what will work for you until you try it and bring it into your life.

Few ideas to help you navigate what your options are.

  • What’s Your Budget?
  • Who is Changing Baby?
  • What’s Important to You?

If you still don’t know where to start, let’s talk or ask around in a Facebook group dedicated to cloth diapering. No, I don’t have a group. 

Maybe even google “where you live + cloth diapers” and see if there is a parenting/motherhood store or cloth diaper retailer near you. You might be surprised at the retailer options. Forget about Amazon, and find these small shops!

Introduction

I’m not sure we’ve met before.

My name is Bailey, and I blog at www.simplymombailey.com. It’s a parenting blog dedicated to a little bit of everything from parenting, to travel to cloth diapers. A true hodgepodge of sorts.

In real life, I’m just a mom.

I’ve been told I shouldn’t say that.

But I will.

I never thought I would podcast, but I tried that video thing and I’m not so sure about it.

My cloth diaper experience: only 3 years of cloth diapering experience, but I’m a loyal reformed cloth diaper addict. Because the real cloth diaper addict is this mama. 

My favourite cloth diaper system is using a cloth diaper cover and prefold.

Meet Bailey - Flats Challenge

Open Invitation to Join

Seriously, I know we are all introverts but should you want to give me a call on Zoom, let’s do it.

It’ll be a short 10-20-30 minutes with children screaming the background as we talk about your favourite cloth diaper, your biggest mistake, and the one thing you wish you could tell the world. 

I want to share your cloth diapering experience because I think that’ll give a better picture of the cloth diapering experience than just my reviews, or any other bloggers perspectives.

Email me today, or start creeping me on social media – Find me on Facebook or Instagram.

Honest Expectations

I’m not a professional. I don’t even have fancy equipment. This is just a mom in your bedroom trying to find some purpose in my life. I love it. I’m awkward. I’m introverted. And I’m totally ready to get out of my comfort zone. I can’t wait for you to join me.

Why a Cloth Diaper Podcast?

Cloth Diaper Podcast Gear

Can I be the first to admit a cloth diaper podcast does not sound very exciting?  Seriously. Of all the possible topics you could sit down and chat about cloth diapering, it’s kind of a snore, but I’m going to try.

Everyone and their Uncle has suggested I get into video

I tried video, and I’m not digging it. Video requires me to have a clean house. Sure, I could shove the dirt into one corner and pretend the couch is clean, but I’m just not that type of person.

During the 8th Annual Flats & Handwashing Challenge, I tried a few videos (find them on YouTube) and I discovered I loved voice recording over my videos. This give me the push I needed to finally do that podcast thing.

Podcast Love

I really enjoy listening to the radio and podcasts. My husband works long hours, and as a mom of two toddlers (who don’t yet speak), the house is quiet and lonely. Podcasts bring me laughter, smiles, tears, and inspiration when life feels pretty lonely and dismal. The extra noise in the background helps keep things feeling sane without losing my mind.

Check out my favourite mama inspired podcasts. 

I’m no podcast listening expert, and I just catch my favourites on the regular, but I’m excited to listen more, learn more, and join this crazy side of content creation.

Podcast Newbie

That said, I’m pretty much a podcast newbie.

We have a recorder because of my husband’s job and rented a microphone and fancier recorder from the local music shop. With a little work and a lot of garage band editing, I’m getting there.

But, I have a lot to learn.

If you know a thing or two about podcasting leave me a comment. This audio world doesn’t appear to be as simple as push play and record.

I’m looking forward to figuring out how to record an interview. I truly believe cloth diapering is a diverse experience and all of our stories and challenges are worth sharing. Plus, who want’s to listen to me drone on for hours?

We rented some fancy tech gear to try out and give us an idea of what we might want to invest in. Otherwise, it’s back to our Zoom Recorder and basics for now.

Other Cloth Diaper Podcasts?

Did you know there are other cloth diaper podcasts?

I didn’t. Not until 4 days ago when I asked in a Facebook group. Turns out, I’m not the first to have this great idea.
