As a cloth diapering Mom to 2 boys some days I think I’ve seen it all! That was until I found MoonMaker Cloth diapers on Instagram. At first I thought…”is that a baby thong?!” because I saw the diaper from the side. Then I realized that it’s a pretty ingenuous way to air out a baby’s bottom to help heal diaper rash while still absorbing pee. The airy diapers currently come in two sizes with 6 different patterns and are American made. Diapers are composed of 100% cotton and are machine washable.
Last summer we had a really rough vacation. We took our boys to Disney and discovered (the hard way) that it wasn’t for us. The boys were hot, crying and stuck in the stroller unable to get out and roam around in the big crowds. In addition to this rough trip, my younger son developed a bright red nasty looking diaper rash. I didn’t know if it was from the heat (it didn’t look like heat rash), from a virus, fungus or bacteria he picked up (even though I am very careful), something he ate, etc. While the origin of a diaper rash can be a HUGE mystery, one thing is pretty universal…airing out the bottom is a great way to heal baby’s bottom.
Our pediatrician recommended that he go diaperless until the rash improved…and while I was happy to help the rash any way possible, I also knew this meant he would be peeing all over. Luckily we don’t have carpet and I was able to keep him on a blanket…but what if baby can crawl, walk or you have carpeting? Plus, he still got pee on himself…Yes, you’ll want to check this product out. Here are some photos I made.
Cleaning the diapers is easy too, the instructions include Fastening Velcro, Machine Wash Warm, and Wash with like colors. Non-chlorine bleach is recommended when needed, and a tumble dry on low. Easy right?! Composed 100% of cotton some aplix and elastic (but no PUL) these diapers are easy to care for and clean.
Currently MoonMakers has a disposable insert, that if it didn’t come in the package it’s in I would have thought was a Maxi pad. They are individually wrapped to keep them sanitary and free from dirt and germs that don’t belong near a baby’s healing tush. The disposable inserts are very easy to change, and can help keep baby germ-free if you are dealing with a bacterial, fungal or viral rash that can spread with contact. If you’re like me and like reusable inserts too, MoonMaker is in the process of developing one!! I tried several of the ones we own, and while most were too big including our small prefolds, my favorite was a bamboo booster from GMD that could be folded to fit in well.
