Diapering 101 - How To Fold And Use Cloth Diapers

Let's skip right past the great diaper debate and assume that you've read what there is to read, done your soul-searching, and made your decision - and for your baby, it's nothing but natural against that tender skin. Whether your decision is ecological, economical, or based on something else entirely, you've decided on cloth diapers for baby. Now it's time for Diapering 101 - how do you turn a rectangle of cloth into a comfy cover for the little cherub?

Let's skip right past the great diaper debate and assume that you've read what there is to read, done your soul-searching, and made your decision - and for your baby, it's nothing but natural against that tender skin. Whether your decision is ecological, economical, or based on something else entirely, you've decided on cloth diapers for baby. Now it's time for Diapering 101 - how do you turn a rectangle of cloth into a comfy cover for the little cherub?

Wash the diapers first

First things first. Never diaper your baby in a brand new cloth diaper straight from the plastic wrapping. Between the natural cotton and the manufacturing process, new diapers have a 'waxy' coating that cuts down on their absorbency and can irritate baby's skin. Toss all your new diapers into the washer and run them through five or six cycles with detergent, bleach and the hottest water you can muster. If you've got a clothesline and a sunny day, that's the best way to dry them.

Folding Diapers

You thought you had made your last choice when you picked cloth, did you? Think again. There are even more choices in 100% natural cloth diapers than there are in the disposable diapers aisle at the supermarket. Pre-folded, padded, flat-folded, nappy-style, all-in-ones, all-in-twos - it's enough to make your head spin just trying to absorb it all. Add to that the choices in diaper covers - plastic pants? Nappy covers? Wool covers? Velcro, pin or one of the novelty diaper fasteners? For the purposes of this Diapering Baby class, we'll assume that you're using plain old flat-folds - a simple rectangle of absorbent cotton that may have a quilted layer running down the middle for extra absorbency. Here are several different methods of folding diapers, courtesy of moms, grandmas and the DyDee Company.

The Angel-Wing Fold

1. Lay the diaper lengthwise on the changing table. Fold the sides of the diaper in to the middle to form an absorbent pad.

2. Fold a few inches down at the front.

3. Unfold the sides at the back of the diaper, fanning them out.

4. Place the baby on the diaper, and pull the front up between his or her legs.

5. Holding the front against his belly, bring both sides of the back around to the front, and pin in place, pushing the pin through a few layers of diaper. You don't have to go all the way through the diaper so that the pin is against baby's skin.

Bikini Twist High-Cut Fold

1. Lay the diaper flat on the table.

2. Turn ONE END of the diaper completely over, twisting the diaper at the midpoint to form an absorbent pad.

3. Put the baby on the diaper (or the diaper under the baby, whichever is easier).

4. Pull the front of the diaper up between baby's legs.

5. Pull back corners of the diaper around the baby, over the front corners and pin securely.

Double-Diaper For Heavy Wetters

1. Use one regular diaper and one infant size diaper. Lay regular diaper on table. Place infant size diaper in center.

2. Fold sides of infant diaper in, then fold sides of regular diaper in to cover the infant diaper.

3. Fold a few inches of the diaper front up, then fan the back of the diaper out to form angel wings.

4. Plop the baby in the middle of the diaper, and proceed as for the angel wing fold.

Whichever fold you choose to use, cover the whole thing with a diaper cover, smooch the little tyke and send him back off to play with a warm, dry bottom.

 

Diaper Rash, Diaper Rash Diaper Rash...What to Do? What to Do? What to Do? Grandma El to the Rescue!

You have tried every diaper rash product you could get your hands on. Maybe you even mixed your own formula. You have made a mess with the white creams, pastes, and lotions, and your baby is still crying, irritated, and uncomfortable. Enter Grandma El's Diaper Rash Remedy & Prevention. This patented, all natural product is an ointment, rather than a messy paste. It is the only one which allows the skin to breathe to maximize and speed the healing process.

Before the rescue, let’s learn more about Diaper Rash…what can cause it, how it can progress if untreated, and how to prevent secondary bacterial and fungal infections which can invade improperly cared for Babies, Toddlers, Kids & Childrens’ bottoms.

The main cause of diaper dermatitis is simply contact of urine on the skin. Between diaper changes, urine begins to break down into ammonia and other chemical by-products. Fecal matter in the diaper area, between diaper changes, can cause the rapid proliferation of bacteria and or fungus which can infect the already irritated diaper area.

Obviously, the breakdown of urine, its continual contact with the skin, and resulting skin irritation, begins the all too common diaper rash syndrome. It was thought that Luvs, Pampers and other disposable diapers would be a better answer than the common cloth diaper. The new diapers were better. But diaper rash is still an all too persistent and difficult problem to deal with…until Grandma El’s Diaper Rash Remedy & Prevention, everything else either di
dn’t work too well, or did not work at all.

The most important treatment in healing diaper rash is PREVENTION!

Prevent urine from coming into contact with the baby’s tender skin by putting a barrier on the skin that prevents urine and fecal matter from contact with tender bottoms by barrier action. Grandma El’s, as it’s smoothed on baby’s diaper area (peri-anal) creates a barrier that allows the skin to breathe or respirate, while keeping moisture and other irritants from penetrating to the skin. This preventative action of Grandma El’s is accompanied by a healing, soothing action to stop the beginning of irritation that produces Diaper Rash.

It is important that the skin is always able to breathe or respirate to induce the healing process. Many diaper rash products are heavy creams, pastes or lotions. While some will create a barrier to keep moisture away from the skin, these products DO NOT have the capability of allowing the skin to breathe. Thereby, the existing moisture can not be released and the healing process is hindered dramatically. It is recommended that you use a semi-occlusive ointment such as Grandma El’s Diaper Rash Remedy & Prevention.

Used for over 30 years in treating and preventing infantile and geriatric diaper dermatitis, Grandma El’s is available to all….RIGHT NOW!!

These are some frequently asked questions about diaper rash:
What is diaper rash?
1. It is an irritation of the skin in the peri-anal area that is most often caused by ammonia forming due to urine breakdown.

What causes diaper rash?
1. It is caused by prolonged contact of a urine soaked diaper on a baby’s skin. The skin turns red and tissue breaks down, creating a rash. This worsens as the skin remains in contact with urine and feces.
2. Chafing or rubbing of diaper or pull ups on the area
3. Possible allergic reaction to diaper
4. Bacterial or fungal infection in rash area
5. Allergic reaction to food can cause urine to be irritating

Who can get diaper rash?
1. It is common on Babies, Toddlers, Kids & Childrens between the ages of 2-24 months
2. It also can occur on Babies, Toddlers, Kids & Childrens whose diapers are not changed frequently
3. It may also occur on Babies, Toddlers, Kids & Childrens who are taking antibiotics or are nursing while mother might be taking antibiotics
4. It can also occur on Babies, Toddlers, Kids & Childrens as they begin to eat solid foods (allergic reaction)

What are the symptoms of diaper rash?
1. Red, irritated, and possibly warm skin in and around the stomach, genitals, and inside the skin folds of the thighs and bottom
2. Pain, burning and itching, and an unhappy baby!

Is diaper rash contagious?
1. Diaper rash is almost never a contagious skin condition

What do I do if my child has diaper rash?
1. Apply Grandma El’s Diaper Rash Remedy and Prevention at every diaper change, after cleansing the area well, and blotting dry

How can I prevent diaper rash?
1. Apply Grandma El’s Diaper Rash Remedy and Prevention with every diaper change
2. Change your baby’s diaper often, and keep the area dry and clean
3. Use a gentle cleanser formulated especially for Babies, Toddlers, Kids & Childrens’ skin
4. After washing your baby, gently pat dry the area, do not rub the area
5. Make sure the diapers used fit properly, so they do not rub against the skin

How long does diaper rash usually last?
1. In general without treatment, a diaper rash will last several days if not infected. If left untreated, a severe case can last up to 10-14 days or more
2. In most cases, Grandma El’s Diaper Rash Remedy and Prevention can clear diaper rash within 24 hours

What types of products are not acceptable in treating diaper rash?
1. Ointments, with the exception of Grandma El’s are occlusive, preventing skin respiration. Only a semi-occlusive ointment, such as Grandma El’s works properly.
2. Creams are usually somewhat drying, have no protective activity, and allow all types of external stimuli (urine, feces, and allergens) to contact the skin causing further problems. Therefore, creams are not a good choice for a baby’s rash treatment.
3. Lotions are not protective at all, and therefore have little value in treating or preventing diaper rash.
4. Some soaps and detergents can cause allergic sensitivity to further the breakdown of baby’s delicate bottom.

Should I call my pediatrician?
1. If after several days, the rash is still visible, consult your pediatrician
2. If the rash has blisters or bumps, is oozing pus or bleeding, consult your pediatrician
3. If your baby has a rash and fever, consult your physician
4. If your baby has a rash and has urine that smells stronger than usual, or many loose stools, consult your pediatrician
5. If after properly treating your baby’s diaper rash, it still persists, consult your pediatrician

What other types of diaper rash occur if proper treatment is not begun?
Rash can further break down allowing either bacteria, or fungus to take hold and infect the skin. Common organisms causing the infection are E. Coli (bacteria) and other fungal infections such as Candida Albicans

How can I treat diaper rash infected with bacteria or fungi?
Consult your physician immediately and he or she will prescribe a suitable anti-bacterial or anti-fungal product to eradicate the infection

What other types of diaper dermatitis exist?
Contact irritants such as urine, fecal matter, poison ivy, oak or sumac, insect bites, soap allergy, rough rather than soft clothing causing skin abrasions, infrequent diaper changes, and poor skin cleansing techniques

Is diaper rash a common problem?
Yes, diaper rash is a common problem. To help prevent diaper rash, change diapers frequently, keep the area dry, and use no cloth diapers. Definitely use Grandma El’s Diaper Rash Remedy and Prevention. The “common” problem will disappear!

Grandma El’s to the rescue!!

Diaper Changes

Having two children can be draining for busy mothers, what with all the diaper changes, feedings, and play times. When they aren't cooing or playing, Babies, Toddlers, Kids & Childrens, as well as mothers, love to experience the great outdoors. One of the best ways to spend time with your child, and get exercise, is the double baby jogging stroller. Exercise is important to a new mother, which is why manufacturers have created the double baby jogging stroller. Now you'll no longer need to spend twice the time, going to and from your house to collect your kids. Go for jogs in the park or around the block, and let both kids take in the sights and sounds.

A double baby jogging stroller is just that – two strollers in one. Both children are seated comfortably in a hammock like cradle. Fused together, these hammocks are safely and securely sewn to a strong but lightweight metal frame. Handlebars on either side are cushioned with thick, soft foam to ensure Mom's comfort during long jogs. Heavy-duty plastic wheels are doubled to ensure stability.

Seat belts are a must, in the event of sudden stops. Belts come in two varieties: Parachute and single-belt styles. The parachute belts, are so called because they're smaller versions of ones used by parachuters and sky-divers. They're shaped like underwear, with straps wrapping between the legs, and a large belt across the stomach. Like a harness, you slip your baby into this safety belt.

Single belts stretch across the tummy, buckling at the other side.

Some double baby jogging strollers feature interchangeable belts and are much stronger. Changing these belts can be complicated and difficult, so it's best that you choose a double baby jogging stroller with permanent belts.

Even when you can rest assured your little one will be safe on his adventures, some days may be inclement. Here's where sun-shielding hoods and rain blocking tarps come in handy. For hot days, when the sun beats down on little heads, there is the double baby jogging stroller hood. It's similar to porch and house awnings . Made of nylon and water resistant, the hood attaches to the handlebars of the double baby jogging stroller. Covering baby's sensitive skin, this feature also comes in handy for rainy days.

Even with a hood, children can still get soaked from oncoming raining. Clear, plastic tarps have been designed to protect Babies, Toddlers, Kids & Childrens from potential colds. A specially designed rain tarp is attached to the stroller hood, and is stretched down to the foot board of the double baby jogging stroller. The sides of the tarp are breathable, water resistant nylon netting, allowing fresh air to circulate to your Babies, Toddlers, Kids & Childrens.

Never buy double baby jogging strollers second hand. They may have defects, or not be up to current standards. The same goes for things like rain tarps, hoods, or seat belts. As you probably already know, always put on the safety brake located near the wheels when you're stationary.
