Snappy Diapers is going to give away 2 sample bags of Hard Rock to not one but 2 lucky winners!!
If you haven't heard of Rockin' Green before here is a bit about their detergent which we use on our clothes and diapers!

Hard Rock: This hard water formula is perfect for those that struggle with diaper laundry! Our newest formula in the lineup will knock the stink out of anything you throw at it!
This bag will do at least 45 loads, though some may find it does even more!
Available in several yummy fragrances and unscented!

New scents!!
Rockin’ Green not only kicks butt in the washroom, but it smells AMAZING! It comes in several different scents, so there is always something new to try. So the only hard part is deciding which one to try first!
  • Orangevana - orange and cream combine together to reach a new level of cleaning awareness
  • Smashing Watermelons- this juicy watermelon blend is like a kick to your senses..Best Seller!
  • The Green Tea's - the zen like blend of green tea and aloe, is sure to make it to the top of your playlist.
  • Rage against the Raspberry- this raspberry and honey blend will have you running around the laundry room looking for the mosh pit! Best Seller!

Ingredients

Rockin’ Green is made of safe, phosphate free ingredients which makes it good for the planet and gentler on your little ones. Everything is made with love, and put to the test every single day on my own families diapers and laundry. So you know that I expect only the best from everything that I send out the door.
Ingredients: sodium carbonate , sodium percarbonate, natural chelating agents, sodium sulfate, biodegradable surfactants, natural fragrance oils (if scented is chosen)

Washing Instructions

First Time User: the mission is to de-funk your diapers! To get rid of built up minerals and left over detergent do the following:
  1. Fill your washer with hot water and 3 Tbsp* of Rockin’ Green, along with your diapers.
  2. Let it soak for approximately 30-60 minutes. Then launder as usual, skipping the soap. If you have a HE machine, you may have to consult your manual but you can usually do a soak by pressing the start or pause button.
Tip: Repeat this process anytime you need a good deep-cleaning. If your diapers have excessive buildup or residue, it may take a few soaks to get them in good condition. For those with really hard water, you may find a quick soak before every wash helpful.


Check out this video on how to Rock a Soak
Washing Instructions: washing diapers and clothing should not be a complicated ordeal. Forget everything that you have heard, and keep it simple. You don‘t need extra boosters or add-ons with Rockin’ Green.
  1. Savor the smell of your Rockin’ Green detergent…ahh…yummy….
  2. Dump your diapers/clothes into the washer and do a cold rinse/wash to get the nasties out prior to the wash cycle. The more water, the better!
  3. Add the detergent and do a hot wash. Use 2-3 Tbsp* per load. For HE machines or those with soft water use 1-2 Tbsp*. Rockin’ Green is good for clothes and diapers. So toss a couple tablespoons in there!
  4. Double Rinse.
  5. Enjoy your clean fluff

Must share disposable article

Pampers new Dry Max causing Severe Rashes

April 12, 2010 · Posted in Cloth Diapering 
This is yet another Pampers post.  If you use disposables full time or part time, I urge you to read this.  Pampers are causing serious problems for babies.  Don’t let your baby be next.  If you can, use cloth. If you can’t please choose a brand better for your baby such as Tushies.
Today I saw something very disturbing.  A friend of mine posted a photo (edited to not show her baby’s privates) of a very serious diaper rash.  In fact, it is the worst I have ever seen.  The skin looks like it has been burnt off.  She was hoping to find some advice for treatment and causes until she could get to a doctor.  Obviously her daughter is in pain and very uncomfortable.
A few people suggested it could be a chemical burn.  My friend did a little digging and some dot connecting.  The rash started after she began using the “new and improved” Pampers Cruisers with Dry Max. She found a facebook group dedicated to bringing back the old Dry Max diapers. In that group, consisting of 728 members, she discovered many, many moms complaining of the same burn like rash.  All of the rashes began after using the new  Cruisers with Dry Max.
She has since started using another brand of diapers and is in the process of beginning cloth again after a hiatus.
While I nor she can confirm 100% that the rash is from Pampers Dry Max, the overwhelming number of mothers claiming severe rashes from this diaper is convincing.
Not that causing chemical burns isn’t serious enough, in typical big corporation fashion, it seems they are giving customers with rash complaints the run around.
Here is an excerpt from a customer service rep’s response to a mother complaining of a rash caused by Dry Max:
You know your baby best, but some factors that can contribute to the onset of diaper rash are diet/change in diet, diarrhea, teething, the use of antibiotics, upset stomach, etc. Taking all of these things into consideration, it’s hard to pinpoint the cause of your child’s skin irritation. If your baby’s condition doesn’t improve, you may want to speak with your pediatrician
My friend in particular was told her baby just needs to be moved up to the next size. How could a diaper rash possibly be caused by a smaller size?  Leaking, yes.  Rash, no.
And, in case you would like to see, this is what her baby’s rash looks like. Please be advised this is a graphic image and is hard to look at.  After a doctor appointment she was told it was definitely from the Dry Max diapers which caused “contact dermatitis.”
photo
Listen to a few of the rash concerns:
After 1 day on the new Cruisers, red, hot rash ALL over the bottom. I switched diapers immediately, and am already seeing an improvement with Triple Paste. He’s 15mo and on table food. No allergies, no antibiotics, no diarrhea, not teething.
Our 12 month old son has horrible burn-type rashes and we know it has to be the new Cruisers – the diapers really smell of a strong chemical. The odor becomes stronger when wet. He is on a diet of Enfamil formula and solid foods. We were about to switch him to milk, but are waiting until the rash clears. We have officially switched diapers (testing out Huggies).
These quotes come from a discussion with 25 replies, most of which are instances of severe burn like rashes.  This thread attempted to compare diets and age to rule out other possibilities, and no matter if the baby was breastfed, formula fed, whole milk, or other, the rashes began with Dry Max diapers.
The loyal customers are enraged.  Moms took their complaints to the Pampers Facebook Fanpage, only to have their complaints erased.  Many were also banned from the page.  Others left official reviews of the new Cruisers on Pampers’ website but it denied them saying their reviews had “vulgar language.”  That is because the words “horrible” and “bad” speak the truth: how vulgar.
Another reason parents are enraged is the deception.  Pampers began putting the new Cruisers with Dry Max into the old Cruisers boxes.  Now, parents experiencing rashes are either diving into boxes in the store to compare, or switching brands completely.
But have these parents considered cloth diapers?!?! I think some cloth diaper manufacturers should utilize this Pampers fiasco to convert more moms to cloth diapers.  Hey!  Offer a special discount to members of the Facebook group.
If you came across this blog post because of your troubles with Pampers Dry Max, please consider joining a Twitter chat this Earth Day that is all about how to start cloth diapering.  This would be the perfect opportunity to learn more about modern cloth diapers.  In addition, if you do not currently use cloth diapers, you are eligible to win large prizes of cloth diapers that could very well help you on your way to begin!  To learn more about this party and register visit my recent blog post: Get Real- The Inside Poop on Cloth Diapers.
I think Pampers users would be pleasantly surprised at how absorbent, easy, and comfortable cloth diapers are.  Not to mention, NO HARSH CHEMICALS to cause rashes or burns.
If any disposable diaper user has questions for me personally about how to get started and what diapers might best fit your needs I would be more than willing to answer them.  You can email me at dirtydiaperlaundry at gmail dot com.
I would just like to add that as much as I love cloth diapers, not everyone does.  But if you use disposables please consider another brand.  To further support Pampers when they clearly care nothing for their loyal customers and, more importantly, the health of the babies in their diapers, is foolish.  To read more about the dirty things Pampers has done check out my older Pampers posts.

Before my son was born I was warned about using disposables because of the chemicals. I didn't fully understand what that mean't and tried them the first few months. It now makes total sense to me that there are chemicals to make the diapers absorbent and those chemicals are touching your babies skin all the time. 


I did further research after we switched to cloth and found that not only can the chemicals cause rashes and infections but they are also linked to infertility as well. Some studies also showed that cancer may be another side effect. Of course they can't be 100% sure because there are lots of other factors. I personally won't risk it.


I would like to start a new campaign called Friends don't let friends put chemicals on their babies. I don't say disposables because it isn't the disposable it is the chemicals. There are much safer alternatives.


Thanks for reading! Keep up the support and pass it on.

Just in time for summer!

Bummis Swimmi - Swim Diaper!

Bummis Swimmi

From the Riviera to the neighborhood kiddie pool, your baby will have the cutest bum around. And rest assured - nobody will ever have to empty the pool because of your little darling! Fashion and peace of mind - what better combination can there be in a baby swimsuit ....

Engineered with painstaking attention to detail and functionality:

  • A trim and attractive design that has a terrific fit on any baby
  • Interior polyester mesh for easy clean ups
  • Coated nylon layer sandwiched inside that will hold in the messiest stuff a baby can throw at you!
  • Fun, unisex cotton prints on the outside
  • Adjustable hook and loop closures for a snug and comfortable fit
  • Stretchy soft lycra bindings to protect baby’s tender skin

What should you put inside the SWIMMI?

Absolutely nothing!

Can you use this pant as a waterproof diaper cover as well?

No! You can use the Swimmi as a cloth diaper cover, but you should not use the same pant for both cloth diapers and swimming. Size up for use as a diaper cover, and use with flat cloth diapers only.
Of course, as is true of all our products, the SWIMMI is made with careful attention to detail in our own wonderful factory in Montreal, so that we are assured of good quality and fair labour practices. Most of the fabrics and components we produce with are sourced in North America and all are guaranteed lead, phthalate and BPA free.

MSRP $12.75

Thirsties® Duo Wrap Snaps Giveaway!!



Thirsties Duo Wrap Snaps

Sizes:
Size One - 6-18 lbs (3-8 kg) 0-9 months
Size Two - 18-40 lbs (8-18 kg) 9-36+ months
Features:
  • Features and adjustable rise for extended use to suit your growing baby
  • Two sizes will fit from birth to potty
  • Leg gussets provide superior protection against leaks
  • Pliable and breathable in over a dozen fresh colors
  • Pair with basic Prefold Cloth Diapers and save $2000 over disposables!
  • Pair with Thirsties® Fab Fitted Cloth Diapers and save $1000 over disposables!
Details:
Thirsties® Duo Wraps are easy to use and easier on your wallet! The adjustable rise of this wrap design means one size will last twice as long. In fact, only two sizes will cover your baby from birth all the way to potty-learning.
Similar in feel to our best-selling Diaper Cover, Thirsties® Duo Wraps are completely waterproof yet remain breathable, pliable, and very comfortable for your baby’s delicate skin. Durable snap closures provide a secure fit at every diaper change. Leg gussets provide advanced leak-proof protection and bindings are super-soft against baby skin.
Thirsties® Duo Wraps are a result of more than six months of development and testing. This affordable wrap actually hatched as a one-size diaper cover. Logically, we thought a one-size diaper cover would be the most affordable option for the end-consumer. But what we actually discovered, no matter how many different cuts and prototypes we made, is that the 'one-size' options are too big on the average newborn and too small for most toddlers over 24 months of age. What this means is that the 'one-size' option truly only fits your baby properly when your he weighs between 10 lbs to 32 lbs. Alas, our findings confirm that the label 'one-size' diaper/cover simply does not live up to its claim. Most families purchasing a 'one size' cover would actually end up purchasing a newborn size, a 'one-size', and a toddler size: THREE sizes from birth to potty! Not ONE. Therefore, in the end, Thirsties® Duo Wraps are truly looking out for your wallet.
Thirsties® Duo Wraps are a very trim fitting cover. They are the preferred wrap for trifolded prefold diapers and over trim fitted diapers, such as our Fab Fitted diapers. For bulkier systems and/or for nighttime double stuffing, we recommend Thirsties® Diaper Cover, which has a roomier fit.
Care & Content:
Machine wash warm or hot. Dry in dryer or hang to dry. Made in the USA 100% polyester w/urethane coating - FREE of PVC, phthalates, lead, and latex
