August 26th-September 1st Weekly Giveaway

The Moby Wrap is one of the most comfortable baby carriers on the market! The design uses your entire back, as well as your shoulders to carry the weight of your baby. Unlike other carriers which have narrow straps and may only go across one shouder, the Moby Wrap is a wide stretchy piece of fabric that is wrapped over both shoulders. It is super comfortable and very easy to wear (I personally wear my daughter for hours in this baby carrier). There are no buckles, snaps or other fasteners. It is easy to adjust the fit by varying how tightly you wrap yourself and your baby.

The Moby Wrap comes with an easy to follow instructional guide with tons of tips and techniques. With the single stretch cotton and the width of the Moby Wrap, your baby is wrapped close and tight insuring a very secure hold. Your baby's head can also be secured under the stretchy cotton fabric for added safety or if you want them to take a nap. You can finally have both hands free and know your baby is happy, safe, and secure!

The Moby Wrap allows you to wear your baby uniquely close. There is not a lot of extra material or bulky padding between you and your baby. Your baby can hear your heartbeat and will find comfort in the warmth of your body.

The Woby Wrap is an optimal baby carrier for premature infants. Preemies are often prescribed to practice "kangaroo care" and this skin to skin practice used to increase birth weight can be easily achieved while wearing this baby carrier. The Moby Wrap is also long enough to adapt to your growing baby and can hold up to 45 lbs (most people feel comfortable carrying up to 35 lbs).

The Moby Wrap can help sooth your fussy baby! It is amazing how quickly a baby will settle down once wrapped in the Moby Wrap. Experts like Dr. Sears stress the importance of holding your baby often and close. The Moby Wrap allows you to do this with ease. The style of the wrap insures your baby is close while providing ultimate comfort and support. No more aching backs or tired arms! Now your baby can be kept close and happy for as long as he/she desires.

The Moby Wrap is very versatile! You can wear your Moby Wrap in many different ways. Wear your baby facing you, or facing the world. When not being used as a carrier you can use your Moby as a blanket, pillow, or anything else that comes to mind.

The Moby Wrap is easy to clean. You can machine wash your Moby in cold water and tumble dry low. Slight shrinkage after washing may occur but once you start wearing your Moby again, it will stretch out.

Cloth Diaper Washing 101

We've had a lot of questions recently about washing cloth diapers and I know it's one of the points of concern for many people when they start cloth diapering. Washing cloth diapers should not be a difficult and lengthy process. You should not have to use different additives (such as vinegar, baking soda, etc). There are a few things to mention before we get to the washing itself. You always want to use the highest water setting on your washer to allow for more agitation of your diapers. If you use a HE washer and cannot set the water level, throwing a soaking wet towel in with your diapers will "trick" your washer into adding more water. You want to use a laundry detergent that is free of dyes, perfumes, enzymes, brighteners, bleach and softeners. You do not want to use Dreft, it contains softeners which will coat your diapers and cause them to leak. Now to washing! It's very simple, I promise!
  1. Cold water rinse without detergent, this will flush out any solid residue and urine, preventing stains from setting in.
  2. Hot water wash with detergent, using half the amount you wold use for regular laundry.
  3. Additional rinse and optionally add 3-4 drops of Lavender Essential Oil (this is a natural antiseptic).
  4. Inserts, fitteds and prefolds can go in the dryer, covers and pockets should be hung up to dry to lengthen their life.
A few more things to take note of... You want to keep a dry cloth diaper pail or hanging wetbag because wet pails are messy, unsanitary and a drowning hazard for small children. You want to dump any solids into the toilet before washing, but remember that breastfed newborn poop is water soluble and can go directly into the washer. Wash ever 2-3 days for optimal stain removal and to prevent odor from starting. If you have a particularly bad stain, lay the diaper in the bright sun for several hours and it will disappear! If you ever have problems with washing, including stink, leaking or rash problems, please don't hesitate to contact us! We're more than happy to troubleshoot with you! You can contact us via our facebook page with questions or you can email info@nickisdiapers.com :)

August 12th-August 18th Weekly Giveaway

The Milk Bands Nursing Bracelet will help you quickly and easily remember which breast you last used to feed your baby. One side says RIGHT and the other says LEFT so you simply turn the bracelet inside out each time you nurse! You can wear the Milk Bands Nursing Bracelet on either wrist and it only takes one hand to flip it!

The Milk Bands Nursing Bracelet also has a time measuring slider that can be used to track what time you fed your baby, how long your baby nursed, or how many times a day your baby nurses. It can even be used to keep track of the number of baby's soiled diapers in a day!

The Milk Bands Nursing Bracelet is made of a soft, flexible and breathable silicone - the same materials used in baby bottle nipples. You can even sterilize your bracelet if you wish by placing it in boiling water for 2-3 minutes, however this may cause the color to fade slightly.

The Milk Bands Nursing Bracelet is made in the style of all those other popular silicone bracelets everyone is wearing but it is stronger. The Milk Bands Nursing Bracelet measures 7 1/2" around by 9/16" wide and is 40% thicker than most other silicone bracelets. There are 10 different colors available to match all your different outfits!
