A little history on potty training

In the 1950’s, almost 100% of children wore cloth diapers and 95% of these children were potty trained by the age of 18 months.

In the 1980s, about 50% of children wore cloth diapers, while the other 50% wore disposable diapers and only about 50% of the children were potty trained by the age of 18months.

Today, almost 90-95% of children wear disposable diapers and the average age for potty training is about 38 months for boys and 36 months for girls with the age ranging from 18-60 months.

Interestingly enough, less than 10% of today’s children are potty trained by the age of 18 months.

Save some green.

Did you know that just by switching to cloth wipes for your baby you can save a couple hundred dollars a year?  Plus they are less irritating to your baby’s skin and help reduce waste.  Not only are you throwing away the disposable wipes, but think of all the packaging that comes with them!  

Here is the recipe for the homemade wipe solution I use…

2 cups distilled water

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/4 cup of your favorite natural baby wash

2 or 3 drops of tea tree oil

Pour it into a spray bottle and spray it on your wipes as needed.  Make a new batch weekly.

This is our All-in-2 (AI2) option.  You just snap the insert into the cover, and when the insert is wet, simply snap in a new insert and reuse the cover multiple times.  Although it’s not as convenient as our All-in-One (AIO) diaper, which is preferred by most dads and babysitters, it is more economical and keeps laundry loads smaller.

We offer Size 1 [pictured] and Size 2 AI2 diapers.  Size 2 fits 15-45 lbs.
