Get a good flashlight...


Get a good flashlight...

When I told my father-in-law that RDA was working on compiling parents' recommendations for nighttime cloth diapering, he looked perplexed, then asked "what, like get a good flashlight so you can see to change the diaper in the dark?" "Ummm... no", I laughed. Actually we wanted to find out what parents do to make sure their babies' diapers don't leak after a (hopefully) long night.

Well over a hundred parents shared their advice to help other parents succeed using 100% reusable cloth diapers at night. We examined the responses and compiled it into a single-page tip sheet for nighttime cloth diapering. I'm thrilled with the results, in part due to the beautiful graphic design work of our volunteer designer, Trebeca Itzen. Please feel free to use and share this tip sheet with anyone you can! We hope it's helpful...

We've now concluded the first phase of the 100% Reusable Cloth Diapers campaign, and it was a real pleasure to see so many people publicize it and contribute to its success. I'm hoping you'll be as generous in helping with the next phase, starting in April, focusing on tips for traveling with 100% reusable cloth diapers.

My son was looking for a name for his own MidWest Ocean he was creating every night. At 18 months I was pulling my hair out and decided to figure out what was missing in our own one size pocket diapers and in cloth diapers in general. I knew there had to be a solution as I was washing King Size Sheets EVERY DAY!! We found a solution and we named them CushytOOsh Nite Nites. They were sooo good he wore them all the time and we reduced our laundry duties by at least 60%. They were a lifesaver for us and I am more than happy to spread the word to other frustrated MOMs. It really would be interesting in knowing what the actual percentage of cloth diaper families that switch to disposables at night time because of massive flooding by their adorable little one???
