Thursday, November 19th, 2009 by by

Bamboo Bums is a WAHM and WAHG run and made company.  The diapers are all made from viscose from Bamboo. Bamboo has so many advantageous properties.  Even though it is now classified as Viscose from Bamboo or Rayon from Bamboo there are many reasons bamboo is good for your baby and your diapers.  Bamboo velour feels luxurious and soft on your baby’s skin.  It is a renewable resource.  Bamboo Bums uses organic bamboo for their products.  Other than the utility diaper Bamboo Bums offers bamboo prefolds, wetbags, and pail liners.

Bamboo=Rayon? New FTC Laws regarding Bamboo and how it affects the Cloth Diaper Industry

Thursday, August 27th, 2009 by by

The FTC has recently laid down the law on numerous bamboo fabric manufacturers for “greenwashing” their product.  Bamboo is touted by many to be the ultimate “green” fabric.  It is sustainable, meaning that bamboo grows like a grass, very quickly.  It is absorbent, soft, is biodegradable, and it is supposed to be anti-microbial.  While some of these factors mean nothing for your t-shirt, bamboo has taken over the cloth diaper world.  The very properties of bamboo that are so attractive to diaper manufacturers and consumers alike my not even be true!  Because bamboo has to be processed in order for it to be a fabric it now has to be called (more…)

Yes, sandwiched between the cool, rainy, gloomy 50 F weather, we had one sunny day this week that was 75 F! On days like this, a very dear friend comes out to play. I’d like to introduce you to Max:I bought Max last week, on sale at Target. I had originally wanted to get a water table. I had used them at the day care that I worked at, and then saw that Target carried them. I didn’t buy it right away of course; I had to sleep on it before purchasing. Well, it turns out that they are very popular around here. Every Target in the Toledo area is sold out of them! The reason that I was more keen on the idea of the water table rather than the pool, is because this is how Jonah feels about being in water:I decided to turn of the spout squirting (more…)
