Questions don’t have to be cloth diaper related, just email maria at change-diapers.com with “Mailbox Mondays” in the subject, or fill out my contact form for readers, which you will always be able to find on my Contact Page.
Hayley has two questions:
1. What are some ways to go green, in addition to cloth diapering & breastfeeding?
2. What is the difference between the different types of wool covers (longies, shorties, underwoolies) (other than just length).
Cloth wipes are the perfect companion to cloth diapers, along with other reusable products like cloth napkins, reusable menstrual products and nursing pads, unpapertowels, reusable snack/sandwich bags etc. Consider composting and/or recycling, and think about switching your personal care and household products to greener alternatives. Of course, make more homemade foods & purchase less processed foods as well.
Wool diaper covers can be pull on styles A.K.A underwoolies or can come as wool shorts A.K.A. wool shorties or wool pants A.K.A. wool longies. All serve the same purpose, but shorties or longies can take the place of pants entirely in cool weather. It’s really up to you which you prefer, though more wool=higher cost. One difference to note is that wool covers can be interlock or knit .
How do you go green? What is your favorite type of wool cover?
