{Review} Organic Caboose Organic Cotton OS Fitted Diaper

First let off let me tell you - I hate night time cloth diapering! I love cloth for during the day but there have been many times that I have almost given up and gone back to disposables for night time (but then I remind myself about all those nasty plastic diapers going to the landfill and I figure hey so what if I have to change the bedding one more time?) But seriously, my son nurses all night long and he pees enough to prove it, so we have had too many leaky nighttime diapers to count. I have tried many expensive name brand cloth diapers and even with so many extra inserts shoved inside that my sons PJ pants are stretched like a rubber band, they still end up leaking about half the time.

{Tutorial} Making Cloth Menstrual Pads

This tutorial and pattern is for a thin reusable menstrual pad. There are three different sizes, a long pad for a heavy flow, a medium pad, and a light days pad. I love these pads – they are absorbent, thin, and stain resistant. They are relatively easy to sew; all you need is a regular sewing machine with a straight stitch. If you have any questions, leave a comment. Puchase the pattern on our Etsy Shop - Simplistically Modern. Good Luck!!
