*CLOSED* You can't catch me, I'm the Gingerbread Man!

They're HERE!!!  We received our very limited shipment of the Gingerbread diaper.  

The EcoBuns team has thought long and hard about how to allow everyone a fair chance at snatching up one of the 6 diapers.

Here's how it will work: 
If you are interested in purchasing one of these diapers, leave ONE comment on this blog post with your PayPal address and let us know if you will need the diaper shipped, or if you will pick it up.  

Don't have PayPal?  Leave your email address and let us know that you will call the store or come in to pay if you win.  

You will have until Tuesday, November 26th at noon EST to leave a commentletting us know that you are interested in the diaper.  

After that time we will use to pick 6 winners. We will invoice your PayPal account for $35.99 (plus tax and shipping if needed) and/or email winners.  
Winners will have 24 hours to pay for their diaper.  If we do not receive payment within 24 hours, we willpick a new winner.  New winners will have 24 hours to pay for their diaper.  We will continue the process until all diapers have been sold. 

Good luck!!

Cloth Diaper Insert, Soakers, and Doublers

We don't spend a lot of time talking about doublers in Buns Boot Camp.  This is because for most babies, the inserts that come with the diapers offer enough absorbency.  If you find that you have a baby who is a heavy wetter and need extra absorbency, the terminology can get confusing.  

Cloth Diaper Inserts are layers of absorbent fabric, such as microfiber or cotton, that are used to provide the sole absorbency in diapers.  They are usually sewn into a rectangular shape, although some or sewn into a specific shape to fit a certain brand or style.  All of the pocket diapers that EcoBuns carries come with their own inserts.  Inserts that you can buy separately include Best Bottom Inserts and Flip Stay Dry Inserts

Cloth Diaper Soakers are absorbant pieces of material that are either sewn into a diaper, or snap into an All in Two diaper system.  The terms inserts and doublers are often used interchangeably, although inserts usually refer to a pocket diaper, while soakers usually refer to an All in One or All in Two diaper.  The Grovia AI2 systems uses soakers.  

Cloth Diaper Doublers are meant to serve as additional absorbency in a cloth diaper and should not be used alone.  Doublers (sometimes referred to as boosters) are great to use for overnight, nap time, long car rides, and sitters.  Thirsties Fab Doublers are a very popular option.  Thirsties Hemp is most often used as a doubler for at night time (even though it has the word insert in it's name, we recommend it only be used as a doubler).

How to Fold a Prefold Cloth Diaper

Prefold cloth diapers look like the diapers that our mothers and grandmothers used.  They have come a long ways, and with super easy folds, getting rid of diaper pins, and very cute covers, the prefolds of today are a great, cost effective way to cloth diaper.

Watch this video to see exactly how easy it is to use a prefold cloth diaper.
