Baby saya dan Bettermoms Bamboo Cloth Diapers- Contestant

 Teringat kembali kali pertama membeli cd apabila membaca mengenai contest ni. cd pertama pilihan ku adalah cd bamboo charcoal dari bettermoms cloth diapers.. 8 keping ku borong masa tu. masa tu budget cuma cukup utk beli 8 cd jer.. perancangan awal ingin di gunakan untuk anakku yg kedua (3tahun) sahaja yang berkulit sensitif, tapi akhirnya kini adikknya 11 bulan yang guna. kebetulan cuttingnya amat sesuai sekali dengan adikknya.
         Pada permulaan pemakaian cd, habis naik ruam Ainu (adik). Pelik juga, kerana Ainu kulitnya tidak sensitif seperti kakaknya. Mula-mula 3jam sekali ku tukar cd nya. Selepas itu jadi setiap 2 jam sekali. Hampir dua minggu juga naik ruam. Kesian ku tengok ainu.. mengaru-garu setiap kali ku buka cd nya. Takkan la bamboo charcoal tidak sesuai kot... ku cuba lg baca comment ibu-ibu di MCDP.. sebelum ini ku guna mesin basuh jer apabila membasuh cd. Akhirnya ku ambil keputusan basuh guna tangan jer cd Ainu.. rasanya ruam dia terjadi sebab terlebih letak sabun. Kebaikkan basuh guna tangan ni kita tau bilasan kita betul-betul sudah bersih. guna mesin basuh hanya untuk spin jer. Selepas tu barulah kulit ainu ok... memang perlu tau banyak perkara juga sebelum ber cd ni.. Dah hampir sebulan guna cd, aku buat stripwash pulak. guna sunlight jer.. Alhamdulillah cd semakin ok serapannya.
           Selepas itu aku ada beli 2/3 keping cd dari brand lain. Tapi cuttingnya tidak sesedap memakai cd babyland ni. Tqvm bettermoms... insert bamboo charcoal pula senang serap air dan cepat pula kering berbanding  insert mikrofiber dan insert zorbII. Sekarang ni aku tengah berkira-kira hendak menambah stok cd dan insert bamboo charcoal ku. Harap-harap ada budget untuk beli lagi. cd Ainu pun hanya cukup untuk 2 hari jer. Suamiku baru-baru ini memuji mengatakan cd ni jimat. Tak payah beli bulan-bulan macam dd dulu. Design pun cantik-cantik belaka.
        Apa-apa pun aku ingin mengucapkan terima kasih kepada bettermoms. Memang rasa berbaloi beli cd bamboo charcoal ni... ^_^



mama.. bestnyer pakai cd bamboo charcoal ni ^_^
amboi Ainu nak pakai sendiri ker cd tu?

Comparison : BAMBOO TERRY INNER AND BAMBOO CHARCOAL INNER


Bamboo terry
... always described having texture like towel. 
Hence it function also like towel, good and quick absorbent. 
Bamboo terry also have many composition of material, in different percentages too, however let me story about what I know most, bamboo terry for Tinky By Bettermoms cloth diapers.

Bamboo terry inner for Tinky CD made from 100% bamboo, however for it's durability, it's woven with a polyester base ( the composition of polyester is less than 5 %). The fine loop appearance and structure give it's more surface to absorb.




Bamboo charcoal inner, specifically for babyland, have polyester composition for about 30%.  Made into fleece, it has feel drier compare to terry ( or even velour, bamboo cotton etc), hence called bamboo material that 'stay dry'.

Both material with it's unique property give user a choice which property they like most. Now let's discuss regarding their unique features.

For most, they relate the stay dry effect with longer hour baby in diapers. Some mom like this and some do not. For those mommies that baby's skin not so sensitive, and time is very limited to permit then to change diapers less than 4 hours, they opt for stay dry effect. Esp for babies less than 6-7month where they pee frequently.

Some baby cannot tolerate wet situation, this type of baby usually they are not complaining much when their diapers is wet, and if we did not change it about 2-3 hours after they had wetted their diapers, some may develop rash also.

Some mothers do not want this stay dry effect, as with the stay dry effect, they did not realize baby pee as baby will feel dry, and they tend to prolong baby hours in diaper, where as, other material such as bamboo cotton, terry or velour will felt some discomfort sensation to baby and this let mothers know it's time to change the diapers.

Also when baby become toddler ( 1 yr above) , many mothers opt for non-stay dry effect, as toddlers pee less frequent, but pee a lot more at 1 time compare during babies. If using stay dry diapers, child will feel very comfortable as it is dry. And mom also do not know when to change until child stinks with urine already. If using non-stay dry, child will learn faster that when they pee, it's uncomfortable and need to change, later they will be toilet trained faster.

Non stay dry also avoid babies/ child in babysitter house or daycare left without changing the nappies, as when babies or child feel wet at he bottom, they will usually make noise and complaint, and that's how they get their diapers change when soiled.

But whatever said, written, told, mother knows what is he best for their kids, both is qood in different situation, so do other material,  and whatever decision to use whichever material, there is no right or wrong answer as long as the child is fine ^_^

Care for Bamboo Cloth Diapers



Care for Bamboo Cloth Diapers

1st time when you get the CD’s – Prewash

1.      Prewash to remove natural bamboo oils. Best prewash is 6 times with warm water, the first wash can use a bit of detergent.
2.      In between each wash, no need   to wait the CD and insert to become dry, meaning prewash can be done continuously.



How to keep cloth diapers before laundry day

1.      Wash any poops or pee with jet sprayed water. ( Yes, even pee have to be wash away with jet spray water to avoid toxic wee syndrome)
·         What is Toxic wee?
Some children can have extremely acidic urine (especially when teething) that will deteriorate fabric and damage elastic, creating massive holes in the diapers/soakers/boosters. This occur especially during teething period.
2.      If your laundry day is more than 24 hours each time, hang the CD’s and inserts. This to prevent molds.
3.      If you do your laundry everyday, it is okay to collect it in a pail without hanging/ drying it.



How to wash Bamboo CD

1.      Handwash is the best, use detergent without enzyme and softeners. Use  ¼-1/2 amount of the normal washing amount. Make sure to rinse well with water to avoid detergent build up
2.      Washing Machine wash also not a problem! Adjust for a delicate / gentle setting.



Stripwash – When your CD’s start leaking after using it for some times


1.      After some times of using CD’s (usually 6 month and above), sometimes the CD’s start leaking and smell bad even after wash. This due to detergent build up.
2.      For inserts: Soak in warm water mix with sodium bicarbonat  (not boiling!) for 1 hour. If the build up is bad, leave it soaked for several hours. After that, wash with cold water few cycle. Then for second last cycle, just add a little amount of white vinegar. After that rinse well and hang dry.
3.      For CD’s, wash the inner layer with diluted sodum bicarbonat/ dishwashing liquid. Rinse well and hang dry.
