BlueBonnet Diaper Service | Saving the Planet One Diaper at a Time

Why choose a diaper service for your baby instead of buying Pampers?

A few reasons, actually! BlueBonnet Diaper Service can save waste, save money, help you keep your baby healthier and be the saving grace to keep cloth diapering convenient. I’ve compiled a lot of information about the benefits of cloth diapering. I also watched my mom use them for my brother and sister, so I have first hand experience too!

Let’s delve into the history of diapering

If we go way back in the day (I’m talking 2,000 BC back in the day), mamas used to use moss, wood shavings, grass or nothing at all to diaper their babies. Imagine having to scavenge for anything absorbent to keep your baby somewhat comfortable! And then having to check the moss or grass for bugs first before putting it on your baby. No thank you! It got a little better around 1,000 AD when families used cloth and a swaddling band to keep babies hygienic. These immature versions of a cloth diaper would be changed every few days, so there wasn’t a huge improvement in cleanliness.

Then a tiny invention made a world of difference

Finally, in the 1850’s, the safety pin was invented. This led to more families having a dependable way to secure and fasten a cloth diaper. Pieces of fabric would be folded into a rectangle then secured around the baby’s bottom. Wool pants or shorts were used over this to keep the cloth diaper from leaking through the clothes. Thankfully babies were changed more often at this point. In the early 1900’s, diaper services started making the rounds. Families would leave their diaper pail on the front step, the service would come and pick it up, sanitize all of the cloths, dry them, fold them and bring them back to the home.

Cloth diapers were the only option until one predominant company changed everything

The early 1960’s was the first time we see disposable diapers come onto the market. P&G created one of the first and named it Pampers. I’m sure you’re familiar with that brand! Resealing diaper tabs were a huge improvement to the safety pins families were used to. The convenience with disposable diapers while traveling was also a huge hit! Diapers contoured the the baby’s body shape, velcro tabs on plastic diaper covers, better ways to clean the cloth diapers and even designer disposables made parenting so much easier!

But how do cloth diapers work? Isn’t it something that should stay in the past?

Cloth diapers are just that; made of cloth. Cloth diapers are made of either 100% cotton or a mix of bamboo and microfiber. It’s super absorbent, gentle on skin, holds up with heavy, repeated use and easy to sanitize. You can purchase cloth diapers, either prefold or flatfold, at many retail stores and online sites. The diaper itself is just a rectangular piece of cloth. The outside layer, called the diaper cover, is the other important part of cloth diapering. The diaper cover used to be made of rubber (why some older generations call today’s diaper’s “rubber pants”), but now is made of vinyl or plastic. Microfiber or suede is used on the inside lining to keep the diaper cover comfortable for baby.

When it’s time to change baby, the cloth diaper comes out of the diaper cover and is rinsed in the toilet. You can purchase a hand held bidet to help you spray off any solid chunks stuck to the fabric. Or, if you don’t feel like investing in a hand held bidet, simply “dunk and swish” the cloth insert in the toilet. Once the cloth is rinsed, it’s added to the diaper pail. Diaper pails hold 2-3 days worth of diapers until you’re ready to run a sanitize cycle in your regular washing machine. Wash, dry, fold, use and repeat!
