I can't wait to get it. I will be dyeing it cotton candy pink as soon as it comes in.
Oh sounds pretty! I just acquired a natural bamboo in a trade...I wonder if that can be dyed?

Yeah! The six that I just ordered arrived today! Now, I have 12, 2 of each color in the bamboo. Oooh I wish I had a camera. I might just have to go out and buy one just for the occasion.

It's a really long soaker (like a snake) that you fold over to become several layers for more absorbancy, but dries faster when unfolded. Peewells have them, too.

I ordered a trial from Palmentto's with a PUL cover. Was thinking about the wool cover. Anyone got goods/bads about the covers?

Everyone seems to love these so much. Why change a good thing?
To answer this question of "why"?? I must chime in LOL.


2 reasons for the change.

#1 there have been NUMEROUS compliants about dry time.. Just that little bit of poly will really help the dry time. Yes it will decrease the absorbency a little.. but come on they are SILLY absorbent. So it won't be a big deal there.

#2 Fluff rentention and longevity. Over time the bamboos loose their fluff. It is REALLY hard to notice until you buy a new one and throw it in your stash. Then you can tell. The poly will help keep the fluff, and help with shrinking.

The hemps will remain the same for us crunchy mommas that prefer poly free nappies.. or if you have to b/c you have a poly sensitive baby.

The new hemps are LOVELY! I LOVE the Rainbow stitch nappy!
The old hemp nappys were a bit crunchy and the soakers would twist up. I have been using the new hemps for about 2-3 months and they are awesome!

So you guys know the original bamboos are almost gone.
I am out of purple, natural, green and orange. Only pink and blue remain.

The next bamboo order is suppose to arrive late July. (crossing fingers)
You never know what will happen with customs..

Here is an updated list of stores that carry BBH

Not your mama's cloth diapers

Palmetto diaper works

Abby's Lane

Kelly's Closet

Baby Hopes Cloth Diapers

and coming soon..nappies are in transit--> Jillian's Drawers

So when they are gone they are gone.
