Thanks to Farrah to post about this in her blog . She is one of my dear very early customer become friend. A dedicated mom to Breastfeeding and Clothdiapering as well as Baby wearing.
She wrote a great post about Sending Cloth diapers to your child's daycare. This is a typical and very frequently asked and doubted by many newbies in Cloth Diapering,. And I hope Farrah's post will help you to handle it.
It is not easy to persuade a daycare or babysitter to use cloth diapers on your child. But it really isn't a problem, if you make things a lot easier for them, as easy as using disposable diapers.
However, before you start sending cloth diapers to your child's daycare/babysitter, make sure you are well experienced with diapers usage and handling. It is very important for you yourself to be comfortable with cloth diapering before you can convince other people to cloth diaper your child. This way, you will be able to handle criticism and complaints coming from them.
I have been sending cloth diapers to Adam's daycare from day 1. So let me just share some tips with you :).
1) Send enough CDs for the day.
When Adam was younger, I sent around 6 diapers. Now that he is older, I only need to send 4 diapers:
- 1 for the mid-morning diaper change,
- 1 for the after lunch shower,
- 1 for the late afternoon diaper change,
- 1 for extra.
For the record, I send Adam to the daycare at 8.30am, fresh and showered. And pick him up at 5.45pm. So if your working hours is longer than mine, send more diapers accordingly.
2) Preferably, use hook and loop diapers, i.e. those using the velcro tab, yang macam kasut sekolah budak-budak tuu.. I don't really recommend you sending diapers that use snap buttons to the daycare because it needs the right setting on the snaps to ensure good fitting or you'll end up with a leak.
Remember that it is not necessarily the same person who will put on the diapers on your baby every time. If the daycare keeps changing caregivers then you might end up having to reiterate your instructions every time.
Besides, hook and loop style is the closest to disposable diapers and this would definitely reduce any resistance coming from the daycare.
3) If you're using pocket diapers, pre-stuff them with their inserts.
4) If you're using onesize diapers, pre-set their sizing accordingly.
5) If you're using sized diapers, make sure you use the right diaper size, not too tight, and not too loose. If the diaper is too loose, leaking might happen and people won't like it.
6) Tell the daycare to change your child's diaper every 3-4 hours.
7) IF, you suspect your child's caregiver is a little bit, erm.. slow (plain word=lazy) in changing your child's diapers and begins complaining about 'leaking', you have 2 ways in approaching this problem:
i) The harsh way: Insist on changing your child's diaper every 3 hours.
ii) The soft way (my preferred way): Use highly absorbant diapers, those using hemp or bamboo inserts, or onesize microfiber inserts. This way, the diapers can definitely last a little bit longer, at least for 4-5 hours before the next changing/bath time.
8) Prepare a wetbag, or a plastic bag if you don't have a wetbag yet, that is big enough to keep used diapers. Remember to instruct the daycare to place used diapers inside the wetbag/plastic bag.
9) Now here comes the hardest part - poop handling:
Remember to instruct the daycare NOT to wash the soiled diapers. Your goal is to make them be willing to use cloth diapers on your baby. So make things easier for them.
For breastfed babies' runny poop, tell the daycare to just fold the diaper and put it inside the wetbag.
If the poop is soft, or even hard, just tell them to flush the poop down the toilet, fold the diaper and put it inside the wetbag.
In my case, the caregivers at Adam's daycare would ALWAYS wash Adam's soiled diapers (they spray the poop off the diaper with a water hose). Despite me telling them they can just dump the soiled diapers into my wetbag. The thing is, they're not comfortable keeping dirty poopy diapers inside the bag. I don't want to add more work to them cos I do understand how difficult it is taking care of so many children at the same time.
So the best warkaround to handle this situation is for me to use flushable liners on top of Adam's diapers. I left an instruction to just toss the poopy liner inside the bin, or flush it into the toilet. So there's no need to do any further washing.
10) So if you're using liners, be friendly to our environment and use FLUSHABLE LINERS. Also, make sure you pre-line all the diapers before sending them to the daycare.
And finally, if you really want to cloth diaper your child at the daycare, be serious about it. Don't send any disposable diapers as backups or extras AT ALL because that might give them the impression that you're giving them the option to NOT use the cloth diapers.
I forgot to add that it might be a little helpful if you send yummylicious or gorgeous/cute looking diapers to the daycare for them to drool over hehehehe... I find that the caregivers at the daycare that Adam is attending would always reach out for my cute looking Drybees or those yummy Blueberry hehehe ;P.
Happy cloth diapering!

One BEST experience I have as a mom is to be able to breastfeed my children. It is the most wonderful gift a mom can give to their children. But no one can deny sometimes breastfeeding it's not an easy things to do . You need to have:
Knowledge ( read , read , read, and ask , ask ,ask) and Supports!
Not all the women have knowledge about infant breastfeeding, the techniques, methods and how to over come early problems and for me the hardest of all is to get rid of those ridiculous MYTHS!
And the other MOST ridiculous things I ever heard as an excuses not to breastfeed is : oh I don't want my breasts to sag, I want to keep them "perking up " for my husband. Oh come on! PLEASEEEE !!!Breastfeed won't sag your breasts ! If you take a good care of them you will reduce the sagging problem and pregnancy ALONE can make breast sagging or even the un-proper support!
"Several studies have shown that breastfeeding does not cause breasts to sag. Sagging is a natural and inevitable process that happens because of age, number of pregnancies and smoking. Diet and genetics may also play a role. Sagging of breasts is not related to breastfeeding in any way"
So STOP BLAMING BREASTFEEDING FOR YOUR SAGGING BREAST(or YOUR PARTNER )SAGGING BREAST , PEOPLE!!
About 10 million of the world's children die every year before they reach their fifth birthday. That is, over 27,000 per day, or over 1100 per hour. Of these, over a third - more than 450 - are less than a month old. Growing evidence tells us that good breastfeeding practices can save thousands of these babies.
Please join the:

Coming soon to Mia Bambina :
- 2 Staged Sizes to fit wider range of sizes perfectly
- 12 snap width settings
- 2 double layer soakers included to keep drying time to a minimum.
- No more than 2 layers of fabric throughout for quick drying time.
- Bamboo velour and fleece construction for ultimate absorbency and construction
- Soft, gentle elastic
Size 1 will fit approximately 5 pounds to 15 pounds, making it an excellent newborn diaper -even for very small newborns.
Size 2 Drybees Gone Natural bamboo diapers are sized to fit about 12 to 35 pounds.
Both sizes feature a snap down rise so you can adjust them to fit your baby. Snaps at the waist ensure that your diaper will look new longer than hook and loop diapers - and you don't need to worry about them snagging anything in the wash.
Made with a soft unbleached bamboo velour outer and soft absorbent bamboo fleece inners, these scrumptious diapers are edged in rainbow thread.
The Drybees bamboo diapers now have a snap in soaker in the back and velour topped front soaker that is sewn in at the front edge. Both soakers open up in the washer and dryer for thorough cleaning and fast drying.
Bamboo fabric absorbs 60% more than similar weight cotton fabrics and it is naturally antibacterial. It's more hygienic and healthier for your skin! For sensitive and allergy prone skin bamboo is a wonderful choice. Bamboo's natural breath-ability keeps your skin comfortable and feeling dry longer. The fabric even feels cool to the touch.
- Bamboo thrives naturally without using any pesticides and fertilizers and is 100% biodegradable.
- Bamboo has been praised as the natural green, Eco-friendly textile material of the 21st Century.Bamboo thrives naturally without the use of pesticides.
- It is a natural cellulose fiber which is converted into yarns without the addition of chemicals, and is 100% biodegradable in soil by micro- organism and sunshine, causing no pollution to the environment.
- The unique make-up of the 'Bamboo' fiber, whose cross section is filled with various micro-gaps and micro-holes gives it a moisture absorption rate three times that of Cotton.
- Bamboo fiber is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti static.
- Its natural antibiosis function keeps bacterium away so that it won't produce bad odors.
Washing and Care
- Place the bamboo products in a washing bag prior to its first laundering.
- Launder bamboo products with lukewarm water on delicate wash with like colors (DO NOT BLEACH) and thoroughly rinse. ;
- Tumble dry no or low to medium heat setting.
- We do not recommend the use of fabric softeners as they tend to block the micro-gaps in the fibers leading to reduced absorbency.

This is one of the BEST SELLER for night time diapers. GAD windpro is one of my favorite because of its cutting, and trimness. And best of all it is BREATHABLE.
Made from either waterproof Mid weight or Light weight windpro (fleece ) outer layer and super soft Microfleece for inner layer, made it an excellent diaper for night time. The light weight outer however might not be suitable for heavy wetter during night time, but it is a great day time diaper if you are looking something more breathable.
These are the limited edition...grab it while it last!
GAD windpro pocket diapers RM 70 , pair it with GAD hemp onesize insert and doubler if you need to for an excelent night diapering option.
