DoodleBooty label

DoodleBooty by Doodlebums Diapers

I have started sewing.  I am loving it!  What took me so long?!

I have started a label – DoodleBooty (Doodlebums treasures😉 )

I have bought a few patterns already but right now I am making cloth nappy friendly pants predominantly.  I am using a Max & Meena bought pattern for the cloth nappy friendly pants.  They have a circle on the bum area which gives a little more room for a modern cloth nappy.  These pants have a yoga pants style waist and ankle bands.  However these can be used to increase or decrease the length of the pants.

They come in three sizes:  Mini, Midi and Maxi.  Mini fits from newborn to 6 months.  Midi from 3 months to 3 years and Maxi from 1 year to 5 years.

They are made using Cotton Lycra predominantly (95/5) and I try to specify where it is something different.  But they are all made with a stretchy fabric.

Please watch our Facebook page for updates on the next available batch.  There are Albums on my Facebook page for you to have a look at previous creations.

I use imported and local fabric.  Normally the cute prints are imported and the solid colours are local.  I will however specify in the preview album and on my website once they are available for purchase.

If you have any queries, please drop me an e-mail at info at doodlebums dot co dot za.

February 2015 Newsletter

I experienced some technical problems sending out my newsletter last night.  I am still waiting for my e-commerce provider to assist.  So instead of resending it I thought I’d post my newsletter here for now:

What’s new at Doodlebums Diapers?

Lower the raised eyebrow

Do you have family members, friends or colleagues who just raise an eyebrow when you mention modern cloth nappies (mcn)?  Everyone seems to be stuck in the early 1900’s when only the white terry squares were available.  I have made a little video to introduce the uninformed, to modern cloth nappies.  Have a look here:

Introduction to Modern Cloth Nappies (mcn) video

Following the positive feedback from the video made, I will be making more.  If you’d like me to focus on a specific topic, please e-mail me at info@doodlebums.co.za

Cloth Nappy Chores

Ever wondered how much time cloth nappies take?  Because that’s the first thing people say when they hear you use cloth nappies:  “Oh I don’t have time for that”.

Well Tara was kind enough to share her experience with us.   Thanks very much Tara!

#clothchores

 

Hi! I’m Tara, Mom to Little Man (10months old), working full time and full-time user of cloth nappies.

“WHAT?” I can practically hear you gasp; “Cloth nappies? But they are so much work! All that laundry and folding and laundry and did we mention the laundry?”

When I was pregnant, I had sort of thought about using cloth nappies. The cost of disposables was rather intimidating, as was having other Moms tell me from the moment we shared our happy news to ‘start buying nappies now!’ because you need SO many and they are SO expensive! Huggies are better, no Pampers, no the ones from Clicks oh and buy from Makro when they have a sale! It never really made sense to me to spend literally thousands of rands on something that was just going to be thrown away and made someone else’s problem in a landfill somewhere. But info about cloth nappies in South Africa was quite difficult to find.

My Mum was very supportive and encouraging when I mentioned I was thinking of going th cloth route and that was before we really knew much about modern cloth nappies. As my belly grew, I Googled and read everything I could about modern cloth and slowly I came to realise how much sense it made, not just from a financial point of view, but also from an environmental point of view. Doodlebums and another amazing blog by Marisa (Hippiesafari.blogspot.com) answered almost all my questions around the different styles of nappies, how many I would need, how to wash and care for them and where to get them.

However, there was one question which was the first one that non-cloth moms would ask me which I didn’t really have a good answer too “But what about all the time and effort it’s going to take on top of looking after a newborn/baby/toddler?” Most blogs don’t address this specifically beyond saying “it’s really not a lot of extra work” or “at most an extra load of laundry every few days”. But what does that actually mean?

Before I get to what prompted my 6-week experiment, I must give a little background so you know the full story. We didn’t use our cloth at first simply because they didn’t fit. My stash is entirely composed of ‘one-size-fits-all’ nappies which are known not to fit skinny new-born legs very well. It was also Christmas time and I was trying to cope with my newborn AND all our family so yeah, figuring out cloth was just not on the cards. So we used disposables for about the first 6 weeks. However, when the time comes for Baby #2, you can bet there’ll be some teeny tiny new-born fluff in my stash; in fact I’ll take it to the hospital with me!

It’s been 10-ish months since we started using cloth during the day and about 3 months since I started using cloth at night and my stash has grown to include a variety of nappy styles and brands. I am extremely happy that we use cloth and admit to feeling smug that I can skip that aisle completely on my monthly grocery shop. However, that one question still nags; friends on seeing Little Man’s cute cloth bum ask me ‘So are you still using those nappies?’ Aren’t they a mission?’. One of the most frequently asked questions in the SACNU group is ‘How much effort are they?’.

So I was thinking, while loading my washing machine, how much time do I spend, day to day, on cloth chores? Not including the actualy nappy change, because you’d have to do those anyway with disposables, but how much time do I devote to spraying, rinsing, washing, stuffing and packing away my nappies? How much extra laundry is it? It doesn’t feel like that much extra. There’s only one real way to answer that question and that is to started a little experiment. For 6 weeks in August and September 2014 I tracked every minute I spent dealing with my nappies. I used a little app on my phone called TimeSheet which recorded the task, and then rounded it up to the nearest minute. I then entered all the data into an Excel Spreadsheet. I split the tasks into ‘active time’ and ‘laundry time’. Active time when I was actively dealing with the nappies hands-on (spraying poop, unstuffing & loading machine, hanging up, re-stuffing/folding and packing away). Laundry time was when the washing machine was occupied, but I was able to do other things.

The Background.

We use cloth full-time (day and night). I have 24 pockets, 10 AIO and 3 covers in my stash. All pockets are double stuffed with 1 microfiber and 1 bamboo insert. My AIO are of 5 Grovias and 5 CherubTree Bamboo Velour nappies which I use at night only.

We have a front loading Telefunken TFL-600 6kg machine and wash with Omo. We do not have a tumble drier. I work fulltime so I deal with nappy laundry over weekends or after Little Boy has gone to bed (~7pm). My routine goes like this:

  • collect the dirty nappies from the bucket on the changing table,

  • sort them into ones that need spraying and unstuff the rest and toss them in the machine

  • spray the poopy nappies and add those to the machine

  • run a rinse & spin cycle then a long wash with Omo, then a final rinse

That routine usually finished around the time we go to bed so my last task for the night on weeknights is to hang the nappies on a clothes horse and stand that in the lounge. If it’s the weekend, they get pegged to the line outside.

I stuff and fold nappies and put them away the following evening after our supper, usually while watching TV. {During this experiment, the nanny occasionally stuffed nappies for me. When that happened, I unstuffed the batch and re-stuffed them so that I could time how long it took.}


The Results

I worked out the time taken in two ways. First, the time per ‘round’ of laundry from start to finish. I also worked out time per day.

The red cells represent the rounds which took the MOST time. Unsurprisingly, this was when I had to wash my entire stash in one go after having no water for almost a week (Round 6). However, if we disregard that round for a moment, Round 4 appears to have taken the longest under normal conditions. This seems to be because I pegged everything to the line outside. Pegs are fiddly! The quickest round was a mini-load before we went away for a long weekend (Round 8). I didn’t want to leave dirty nappies in the nappy bin for that long.

On average I spent a total of 20 active minutes per round of nappy laundry and my laundry cycle takes 2h 30mins. However, this isn’t the whole story because I seldom stuffed and folded nappies on the same day that I washed them. So I looked at active and laundry time per day. This is much more interesting (to me) because it shows how often I do laundry and give a better idea of daily time commitments.

I only started the experiment on August 10th and you can clearly see the week without water (21-28 Aug). The most time I spent dealing with nappies in any one day during this whole experiment was 38 minutes. That was stuffing and folding and putting away my whole stash; special circumstances I’m sure you’ll agree! After that, the most active time I spent dealing with nappies on any on one day was 24 minutes. On average though I spent between 9 and 11 minutes dealing with nappies more or less every other day. Laundry took on average 2h 30 mins to run every 2 or 3 days. I could probably go longer between washes, but I wash when my nappy bucket is full.

ScreenShot367 ScreenShot368

Final Say…?

I must admit even I was a bit surprised at how little hands on time there is. Granted if you have more than one child this will be longer but I doubt it’d ever be excessive. For EBF new-borns you can even skip the rinsing step as EBF poop is water soluble!

10 minutes every other day? Easy peasy!

New Products on Doodlebums

Some great new hybrid nappies and muslins have been added to the Doodlebums online store.  As well as some new cleaning products by Om Baba Apothecary!

Buttons Diapers
Tiny Hiney now sells Buttons Diapers!  It is a hybrid system similar to the overseas Best Bottoms and local Snappy Nappy system.  They come in solid colours and a few prints.  I already have three of their covers and will be adding one to our Loan Nappy Bucket.  What makes it convenient is that the snap sizes inside the cover is the same size as the Best Bottoms and Snappy Nappy brand.  This means that between the three brandnames, the inserts can be interchanged!  How convenient is that?!

Om Baba Apothecary

Taken from their website:

Om Baba Apothecary – Where Nature meets Nurture…

Those who knows Om Mama personally would know that she has always been interested in the healing powers of oils, herbs and aromatic botanicals, and makes her own soap and salves for her family. So we had a light bulb moment and the idea of Om Baba Apothecary was born.

The Om Baba Apothecary offers an amazing range of natural and organic product to promote health and well-being. All our product are made from scratch in small batches. Each item is inspired by motherhood, we use only all natural ingredients – organic whenever possible – for our loved ones and our home, and gifts for everyone interested in a natural alternative. Our products are suitable from the very young to the most mature adults.

Our mission is to promote ethically sourced, good quality, natural & organic products at an affordable price.

On the Doodlebums online store, we will be selling Om Baba’s Organic Coconut Laundry Soap, Organic Coconut Stain Remover Stick and the Wooly Wash Bar.  We have placed our order and expect our stock to arrive next week.  I have tried the Laundry Soap and the Stain Remover Stick and loved them both!  I blogged about a really dirty nappy and used these two products to help get the nappy clean again.  https://doodlebumsdiapers.wordpress.com/2014/04/03/a-really-dirty-nappy/
Cherub Tree has changed their business focus.  They will not be bringing in new Cherub Tree nappies soon, but will focus on muslins and inserts/boosters instead.
I don’t know when the inserts/boosters will be available but hope it will be soon🙂
I have been using Cherub Tree pocket nappies predominantly on my two children.  I still have the ones I started with 4 years ago.  They are starting to show wear and tear after daily use since we bought them.  I think that is excellent for a pocket nappy.  I really hope they bring in their original nappies again soon.
I would like to blog about long lasting nappies in a future post.  If you would like to share your experience with your longest lasting brandname nappy, please contact me at info@doodlebums.co.za or leave a comment🙂

First Great Cloth Diaper Change in South Africa

On 26 April 2014, Doodlebums Diapers hosted the first Great Cloth Diaper Change in South Africa at Soet Emporium in Durbanville, Western Cape, South Africa.

We had 26 participants who each changed a baby into a reusable cloth nappy.  These wonderful 26 people assisted in breaking the current world record.  Last year’s record was 8301 babies changed into a reusable nappy, worldwide, in a 24 hour period.  This year’s record is 8 469 babies changed at 188 locations in 18 countries!  Whoo-hoo!

Mid May, we received confirmation from Guinness World Records! The NEW record for “Most people changing diapers in 24 hours (multiple venues)” is 8,459 and was achieved by the Great Cloth Diaper Change (USA) across 18 countries on 26 April 2014.

We did it!

We did it!

 

Firstly I would like to thank Soet Emporium who kindly gave us the space we needed to host this event.  This is also where I do my modern cloth nappy demonstrations.

We had wonderful sponsors who helped us put together a great goodie bag for all participants.

Goodie Bags!

Faithful to Nature were kind enough to sponsor the bags for our goodie bags.

In the goodie bags were Eco Wetwipes from Cherubs, Savon D’ Alep soap from Biowash South Africa, Johnsons & Johnsons samples, discount vouchers from various suppliers and various baby and children friendly information.

There were lucky draw prizes.  A big thank you to the following companies who sponsored prizes:

Cherub Tree SA – sponsored a hamper
Little Ladybugs – sponsored a samples of their baby friendly salves
Little Sams – sponsored a Weegro nappy
Mels Buzz – sponsored a wetbag
Tiny Hiney – sponsored a Charlie Banana hamper
Poopsy Daisy – sponsored a nappy voucher

What is also great about this event is that all participants can purchase a certificate from Guinness World Records, confirming their participation!

We also had two cloth first timers!  Here is a blog entry to read: http://clothdiaperguru.blogspot.com/2014/05/first-timers-at-gcdc-events-world-wide.html

Thanks again to everyone who helped.  Especially my old school friend Jacky.  If you’re in the Cape Town area, she makes divine cup cakes!  Have a look at her Facebook page:  Cupcakes by Tiara Jax

We will host the Great Cloth Diaper Change again next year.  Keep an eye out on the Facebook page:  Great Cloth Diaper Change South Africa

Until next year!

A really dirty nappy

On Monday I had a cloth nappy demonstration at Soet Emporium.  As usual, my two kids were with me.  At some stage I realised Vica needed a change.  My nose told me so…  I excused myself from my two clients and went to the car only to realise I forgot the nappy bag at home!  Oh no!

Once my demonstration was done I dashed to my friend who lives near Soet Emporium.  I changed Vica’s nappy and it was a mean one.  It was one of my expensive, special nappies too:  Itti Bitti Tutto  :(

I stuffed the dirty nappy in a plastic bag and took it home.  And forgot about it for 2 days.  In the bag!  With poop!  Oh my, the shame!  :(

Once I remembered about the nappy I went to clean it.  It had no liner.  The poop has made excellent contact with the nappy.  Poor nappy.  After rinsing off all the poop.  I was left with this:

 

Rinsed Dirty Nappy

Rinsed Dirty Nappy

I got out some Boerseep and rubbed onto the stains.  Then I washed the nappy with a load of nappies.  I used my usual washing regime.  Then it looked like this:

After Boerseep and wash

After Boerseep and wash

Then I remembered I received a sample to try from Om Baba Apothecary!  I got the Om Baba Organic Coconut Laundry Soap and Organic Coconut Stain Remover Stick!

I rubbed the Organic Coconut Stain Remover Stick all over the stains again and put the nappy into the machine.  I have a 15 minute washing cycle on my machine.  I only had the nappy in there, nothing else.  I added a teaspoon of the Om Baba Organic Coconut Laundry Soap.  Then I rubbed it again with the Stain Remover Stick and rubbed it between my hands and rinsed it out.  Another short cycle in my washing machine.

It came out a lot better!

After some Om Baba Apothecary treatment!

After some Om Baba Apothecary treatment!

I will hang the nappy in the sun to see if the sun will bleach out the rest of the stains.  I’m just so glad it came out like this.  So much better!  Will teach me to forget the nappy bag at home and then the dirty nappy in a bag!

We will have the Om Baba Organic Coconut Laundry Soap and Organic Coconut Stain Remover Stick available on the Doodlebums store soon!  Wonderful products!

 

UPDATE:

After drying the nappy outside on the line, in the sun, it came out as good as new:

After:  As good as new! :)

After: As good as new!🙂

Hippie Safari Stocking 2014

Hippie Safari Handmade

Hippie Safari Handmade

There is a slight buzz around this affair…. as there should be!🙂

The Construction of a Hippie Safari Premium hybrid fitted 

All diapers are hand made by a mom at home.
 
A hybrid fitted is a cloth nappy with a water resistant fleece sewn into the nappy, replacing PUL. The benefits of fleece as a water barrier versus PUL is that fleece is breathable and allows for adequate air circulation to baby’s skin. Polyester fleece repels urine away from the outer of the nappy and back into the absorbent parts of the nappy. It is a material that is able to keep the outside of your baby’s nappy feeling dry for up to 4 hours, the average amount of time between diaper changes. This means you can use the nappy without a cover although it does need a cover to be completely waterproof. We recommend pairing the nappy with our Hippie Safari fleece soakers for an effective, bullet proof nighttime solution.
 
Our front snapping nappies are designed to fit babies from 5kg – 18kg. Each nappy is stocked with a fold down rise, allowing for a perfect fit for babies both big and small. 
 
Our front snapping nappies feature cross over wings. This is to allow for a generous fit on larger babies, and a snug fit on the tiny babies, too. 
 
The soaker is snake style and is made up of 4 layers of bamboo fleece when folded and snapped into the nappy. Each nappy also comes with a booster for use with heavy wetters at nap time and overnight.
 
 

A hybrid fitted is the best of both nappy worlds, perfect for those who are seeking both a breathable nappy and a long lasting nappy. Wrap a cover on baby for over night use and end the night time Nappy woes – this nappy will ensure that you wake up with dry sheets in the morning. If you’re going out with baby, simply use a cover.

Firstly, for those unfamiliar to this very important event:  The Hippie Safari hybrid fitteds are nappies made by a WAHM in Cape Town.  Sold exclusively on Doodlebums.  She has had two stockings previously and the last one was sold out in 37 minutes!  A stocking is when a batch of freshly made nappies become available for purchase.  See it as when the Doodlebums online store becomes stocked with these squishy new nappies.  You need to be a registered user on the Doodlebums online store.

The stocking will happen on Friday, 11 April 2014.  It will go live at 8:30pm South African time as I first need to see to my two tots before the Hippie Safari fun starts.

What to expect:

On the night the stocking goes live, you will ensure that whichever device you use, to give you access to the internet, is fully charged (with power and air time if applicable!).  This is the perfect opportunity for your partner and kids to have some quality time together so you can focus….😉  Go to the Doodlebums online store, click on Shop by Brand and click on Hippie Safari.  A few minutes before the confirmed time which the stocking will go live, you will start to press F5 (refresh) to keep refreshing the page so you see them become available as soon as possible.  The reason you do this is because your browser won’t refresh on its own.  Most work from cache and that’s not as interesting a topic as cloth nappies right now…. so we will focus on what you need to do next:

As soon as you see the Hippie Safari Nappies click on “view product details”.  Scroll down and make your selection from the list, click “add to cart” and click “checkout”.  You need to complete your order as fast as you can.  Only once you have placed your order and received an order number you have been successful!   First to checkout, first to score = First come, first serve.  Please keep in mind that you might need to select a different print than the one you ordered as sometimes two shoppers checkout at exactly the same time.   If you want other products from the Doodlebums store too, it is best to place them in your cart before the stocking goes live.

The same evening I will e-mail your invoice with the Doodlebums banking details on it.  As soon as payment is received we will post your Hippie Safari products to you🙂

Prices per nappy will be around R200.  Prices will be confirmed a day before stocking.  A preview album and more details will also be loaded onto the Doodlebums Facebook page.  You guys will be in for a few surprises!

Please note no discounts will be given on the Hippie Safari stocking.

Afterwards there will be a competition:    6 lucky people stand a chance of winning a sample size of the new Little Ladybugs handmade soothing bum salve. This competition will become active after the stocking.  We will post a score thread on the Doodlebums Facebook page and all you have to do (once you received your invoice) is to comment with your score! Winners will be randomly drawn  and your bum salve will be included in your package.

Fun times ahead!😀
