About our products.
All of our products have been tested and meet the guidelines set by CPSIA. We don’t want any confusion that our diapers are handmade by moms and we never want to take that credit from moms who DO make theirs at home. Hand sewing diapers takes a lot of time. We sell hundreds of diapers a week so we need to find a manufacturer for us. Our diapers are fairly made just for us in China, by a company who is stringent about following labor laws. After finding a manufacturer, our diapers had to meet the approval of not just moms, but dads, grandparents, friends, and of course babies. We tested several manufacturers and chose the product that we felt was the most durable. With the proper care our diapers could be used for multiple children.

Other Tips for Cloth Diapers
• Always wash diapers (stripping is recommeded prior to first use) and inserts before use. Just like any new clothes, you want to make sure your baby is in something clean and fresh. But washing also does two other things. First it allows any tiny hole created in the PUL during sewing to seal up. Secondly, inserts become more absorbant with washings, as the washing allows the material to “fluff” (creating more air pockets that hold moisture). • If you experience leaking around the leg play around with the snaps. Sometime the first setting you try isn’t the best. Also check to make sure the elastic is not tucked under (folded near the gential area. If the elastic gets tucked in it gives you less surface area and can create gaps that leak. If your little one has skinny legs, you might want to use two inserts until they plump up. • If your little one soaks through at night, consider usng two inserts. For really heavy wetters, use two insert, but fold the top one in half (creating thickness of three). Place near back for girls and front for boys. • Try a few before you buy a whole “stash”. I would love to sell you a whole diaper stash, but I really want to encourage people to test cloth diapering with just a few to start with. Some people test out several types of diapers before settling on their choice diaper. Others find they like some for day use and others for night time. • Make sure the inserts are laying flat and reaching side to side. Leaking may occur if the inert is bunched up.

How should I wash my diapers?
While each person will have a preference for the laundering of their cloth diapers, this is the recommended washing instructions for Eptta Baby’s diapers and inserts. • Inserts do not need to be removed prior to washing. Most will “float” out during the washing cycle. • Undo all snaps prior to washing (the easiest way to do this is undo all snaps when removing diaper from baby) • Pre-rinse diapers in cold water • Wash on warm (not hot) using enzyme free soap • Add white distilled vinegar to rinse cycle (or can be placed in fabric softener slot in washing machine) • Perform extra rinse cold rinse and extra spin • Line dry diapers, inserts can be put in the dryer or lined dried (Some HE machines allow for you to select a cycle and add a pre-rinse, extra rinse, and extra spin cycle. Selecting this method allows to set the machine all in one step) The ingredients of many laundry soaps actually lead to build up within the fabric over time. Eptta Baby recommends using an enzyme free soap. A search of the internet will provide you with a long list.

What is diaper stripping and how do I do it?
It is not uncommon overtime for cloth diapers to develop an odor (when clean). Don’t worry, this not something that is permanent. It is simply a sign that your diapers are ready to be stripped. Stripping diapers is a way to remove buildup that occurs in the fibers of the fabric. Diapers can require stripping every 1 to 6 months. Eptta Baby recommends stripping only as needed. Steps to strip diapers: • Inserts do not need to be removed prior to washing. Most will “float” out during the washing cycle. • Undo all snaps prior to washing (the easiest way to do this is undo all snaps when removing diaper from baby) • Pre-rinse diapers in cold water • Wash diapers and inserts as described in the Bath Time, except use a HOT water for wash cycle • Add white distilled vinegar to rinse cycle (or can be placed in fabric softener slot in washing machine) • Perform additional rinse cycles until no soap residual (foam or bubbles) seen in water (For most HE machines, this step will need to be selected manually) • Line dry diapers, inserts can be put in the dryer or lined dried Some people prefer to use baking soda to reduce the smell of the diapers between washes or use oxy-cleaners to keep diapers stain free. Please note that the use of these can also add to buildup in the fibers, resulting in the need to strip diapers more often.

How to extend the life of my diaper?
Cloth diaper will not live forever; they can however last long enough to be used for multiple children if properly cared for. Below are some tips for extending the life of your cloth diapers. • Use soaps that are enzyme, dye, fragrance, and brightener free. • Never use bleach on the diapers. Line dry in sun to try to whiten. • Never use fabric softener on either the diapers or the inserts; it reduces the absorbency of moisture. • When undoing snaps, hold the diaper close the snaps (actually getting part of a finger on the snap is best) before pulling apart. This will reduce the tension on the fabric reducing the risk of tearing around the snaps with time. • Wash diapers every 2-3 days. If diapers are left dirty longer, they are more likely to stain as well as need to be stripped sooner. • Avoid exposing diapers to high heat (i.e., dryer, lay on hot metal, do not iron), this can lead to cracking to peeling of the laminate as well as reduce the life expectancy of the elastic. • When placing dirty diaper in pail, simply fold in half to prevent poop from getting everywhere (and potential staining outside of diaper) • If using creams or gels on your little one’s rump, use a cloth diaper liner to prevent transfer to the diaper. Many butt creams can leave residue that affects the diapers absorbance.

Diaper rash and cloth diapers
Most babies will suffer from diaper rash at some point during their diaper wearing years. There are several reasons for this. Poop and pee can become acidic at times. When the skin is exposed to this for prolonged periods of time, it can eat away at the natural oils produced by the body leading to skin irritation. There are ways you can help to prevent your little one from getting a sore bottom. • Change diapers every two to three hours. A clean diaper means no irritants. • Place insert in pocket of diaper. The microfiber and bamboo inserts are made to wick moisture away, this includes oils from the skin. The micro suede layer on the diaper allows for moisture to reach the insert, while creating a barrier between the insert and the skin. • Avoid using soaps or chemical coated wipes on your child. Newborns tend to have sensitive skin, often a warm, damp cloth wipe is all they need. If you desire a cleansing solution, check online for homemade recipes that avoid using alcohol and chemicals that dry out the skin. • If using creams or gels on your little one’s rump, use a cloth diaper liner to prevent transfer to the diaper. Many butt creams can leave residue that affects the diapers absorbance.

My kid pooped while wearing a cloth diaper, now what?
For many, the aversion to cloth diapering is completely due to poop. It looks and smells gross. Yes, in some ways, cloth diapering does mean that you will have to be a bit more hands on with poop, but here are some tips and facts. • Exclusively breast-fed babies have water soluble poop. This means while your baby is eating nothing but breast milk, you can simply wash the whole diaper without removing the poop. • Formula fed babies tend to have more solid poop. It is recommended to remove clumps the best you can before washing. • Once a child starts solid foods, their poop will change. At this point, poop will need to be removed before washing. This doesn’t mean every brown (or green, yellow, orange . . .) spec needs to be gone, just get the majority of it. • There are a lot of ways to ease the pain of removing poop. Diaper sprayers allow you to rinse the poop directly into the toilet. Diaper liners are a thin sheet that is placed in the diaper. When changing the diaper, simply removing the sheet, removes most of the poop. (Most liner sheets are flushable, but some older plumbing systems and septic systems can’t handle them). Scrapping is the most hands on method, diaper scrappers can be purchases, although others have used dedicated spatulas and butter knives. • Wear dedicated rubber dish gloves if the idea of accidently touching the poop makes you cringe. • Soaking a diaper can loosen the poop if it is tough to remove, but it can also turn the poop into a very unpleasant(er) mess.

How will cloth diapers affect my baby?
When my daughter was still quite small, my husband asked if the cloth diaper (which admittedly looked rather bulky on her) would cause her to be bow legged? I laughed and said “no”, then grabbed a picture off the fridge of my husband as an infant, wearing a huge prefold. “You wore this and your legs are fine”. Any search of the internet between cloth diapering and a baby’s development will lead you to many theories. Some believe that cloth diapering inhibits baby mobility, some think it makes babies potty train sooner, other think cloth diapering makes babies happier. Scientifically, there is no evidence to support any of these (or many other) theories. Cloth diapering is a choice for a parent and like many of our choices; we just need to be comfortable with our reasons. And if you want to believe that your choice of cloth diapering will increase the likelihood of your little one winning a Nobel Peace Prize, then go for it!

Are there different kinds of cloth diapers? What kind are these?
Oh, where to begin . . . . A search of the variety of cloth diapering options can make a person’s head spin. Prefolds, One Size, AIO, AI2, Snaps, Velcro, Hemp, PUL, Fitted Diapers, Pocket Diapers, Bamboo, Liners, Doublers, Inserts. Scared yet? There are literally hundreds of cloth diapering options. While I thought about including a cloth diapering 101 course, I realized even a basic course would make this letter of introduction into a mini textbook. And I know you don’t have time to read a textbook, you’ve got a little one who needs attention! So I’ve decided to stay focused on the diapers Eptta Baby sells. Eptta Baby’s cloth diapers are One Size Pocket diapers. These diapers have snaps that allow the size of the diaper to change to fit a growing baby. The lower three rows of snaps adjust the rise of the diaper. The upper two rows of snaps adjust the waist. Eptta Baby diapers have double row snaps at the waist to prevent wing drop and allow for a more secure fit. Using all snaps will adjust the size of the leg holes. Play around with the diaper on your little one to find the perfect fit. If you decided to double the inserts for a heavy wetter or overnight use, you may find that you will have to have the snaps on a larger setting than when only one insert is used.
