For all you cloth diapering mama's....

Although I am not a cloth diapering mama, I am going to try to switch to cloth wipes for our third and final child.
I am excited to offer these cloth wipes to SWC customers starting this summer when we return from maternity leave.
What is a cloth wipe you ask?
A cloth wipe is......
Cloth wipes are the sensible and cost-effective alternative to disposable wipes. They also work phenomenally better at cleaning your little one’s bum, messy hands, and faces too! Simply toss the soiled wipes along with the diaper into your diaper pail or wet bag until laundry day.

Cloth wipes can be used a variety of ways, the most common recommendation are:

•Store them wet and ready-to-go in a wipe warmer (or a plastic container)

•Store them dry, then wet them as needed (use a spray bottle, pump pot, or run the wipes under the faucet)

Based on a modest estimation, you can save a minimum of $100 a year by using cloth wipes rather than disposable wipes!

Cloth wipes are washable and reusable many times. They have many different uses too. You can have a pile designated for wiping up little noses and a pile in the kitchen towel drawer for cleaning our kids up after dinner.
They can also be thrown in a wet bag for portable use on boogie little noses & sticky hands on the go!

If you are going to cloth diaper your baby, cloth baby wipes are absolutely essential. Cloth wipes are more convenient when you are cloth diapering, are healthier for your baby, save money and cut down on landfill waste.

There are two ways to use cloth wipes, the dry method and the wet method. To use the dry method, you'll put your wipe solution (or water) in a small spray bottle. When needed, spray your baby's bottom and use a dry wipe to wipe clean. This is also the method we recommend for your diaper bag. To use the dry method, you'll need wipe solution (we recommend Kissaluvs Diaper Lotion Potion) and a stack of wipes.

To use the wet method, you'll make your own wipe solution in a small bowl, plunge your wipes into the bowl and store them in a wipe warmer. This ensures that you'll always have warm wipes ready for the next diaper change. To use this system, you'll need a wipe warmer, wipe solution concentrate and a stack of wipes.

If you are cloth diapering full-time, we recommend purchasing 2-3 dozen wipes.

When your baby is born, hospitals recommend that you use plain water to wipe your baby's skin because disposable baby wipes can be harsh on tender new skin. If your baby has a rash, disposable baby wipes can actually make the skin more irritated!

Cloth wipes will be available Summer 2012.
They will be 4x8 and 8x8.
Tentative pricing will be $2.00 each or I will quote your price on your specific number if ordering in bulk!
Stay tuned as I am looking up recipes for making your own wipe solution!

Update of sorts

Just wanted to touch base with y'all who are still waiting on orders & those who are asking about mine & the baby's health,
I am currently only able to work 1/2 a day without severe hip/back pain & Braxton-Hicks contractions.
This is 1/2 a day of my normal household duties, child-rearing, & the business. To say that my sewing has been slowed down is a tremendous understatement.
I so appreciate your time and patience with the current status!
As usual, I have been trying to keep you updated via email as I get to your orders. Please don't hesitate to email me with any questions!
I have whittled down the list to only 11 more orders!
I am extremely grateful and blessed that they seems to be going smoothly thus far!
I will keep y'all posted as I go!

Order Closing

Earlier today, I posted on Facebook our date for order closing. It will be on
Saturday, January 7, 2012.
All orders that have been finalized by this point will be completed but I will not take any more until I come back from maternity leave.
I have been emailing most of the morning to anyone who contacted me to ask about orders so if you don't see a message in your inbox from me, please contact me at your earliest conveinence
Again, I appreciate all the support that y'all have given me. The baby is fine and again it is just some issues with me that have to be taken care of! I will keep you posted as it goes along! Also, when my maternity leave will be done!
I wanted to share this little blurb to close this blog entry from a good friend of mine, Leelee. Just because it is very fitting!

I know you work hard for your money and I do my best to give you the best from me as well. My items are limited in volume, but I hope the wait is worth it. I wish I could sew faster & produce more for each and everyone of you. I do hope that if you purchase an item it meets all of your expectations. Thank you all for your support in 2011. I hope you stick around for 2012 and have a safe and Happy New Year...............
