Welcome! Beeba Bottoms Diapers and Covers started out just like most other small Cloth diaper businesses, with making my own child's Diapers, almost 2 years ago. I started looking for the perfect diaper and realized that there just was no such thing. So, the Beeba Bottoms Diaper was Created. A trim fitting front closing diaper, these diapers do tend to run small, but eliminate that huge "bubble butt" cloth tends to give kids while still functioning well. I never thought of selling them till another local mom say my son wearing his diapers and asked me to make some for her son. And so Beeba Bottoms Diapers and Covers was born, selling primarily locally and by custom order. 2 sewing machines and a lot of diapers later, I am online, with my own stand-alone site, www.beebabottoms.com, which houses most of my listings, and now, an etsy shop as well. I have since expanded my product list to include products from Wired Up Designs and the side-snapping Fattycakes diapers. I will also be featuring on occasion one of a kind jewelry pieces from Designs by Gina L.

Designs by Gina L. are one of a kind jewelery pieces made with mosty glass beads. No Plastic. Gina is my mom and occasionally sends me things to list with my items.

Beeba Bottoms Diaper Care
Caring for your Beeba Bottoms Diapers is simple. We recommend using a dry pail, since sitting in water for long periods of time, especially with the added acidity of urine and feces can cause early breakdown of natural fibers. A pail liner of some sort will make laundering easier, and keep your pail clean longer. Fleece pail liners or PUL liners are popular, as are other water resistant barrier fabrics, but even an old pillowcase will work in a pinch.

For wet diapers, toss them right into your dry pail. Messed Diapers may require that you shake off feces into a toilet, if your child is eating solid food, and possibly if they are formula fed. Purely breastfed feces is water soluble, and can be washed as is. Don’t worry about getting every small bit off when removing feces from diapers, just shake off any large bits. You don’t need to dunk or swish unless you choose to do so. Then toss into your dry pail.

When you are ready to wash, just turn your pail over into the washing machine. Don’t worry about the stuffers of Beeba Bottoms Pocket Diapers, if they do not fall out in the wash, they will be easy to remove when you switch to the dryer or move to line dry. We recommend using your hottest wash cycle, and very little of a dye and fragrance free detergent. All free and clear works well, as do many others. DO NOT USE FABRIC SOFTENER. If you like, you can add a few drops of essential oils. Be sure they are pure, and not the home fragrance kind. Tea Tree Oil, Eucalyptus, or Lavender oils are popular choices. Set your machine to run an extra rinse, to be sure there is no detergent left in your diapers, as buildup may cause odor problems, and lessened absorbency. You may also run a short wash without detergent to accomplish this if your machine does not have the extra rinse option.

In most cases, Bleach is not necessary, and it can cause early breakdown of fabric, so we recommend not using it on a regular basis, and only using a very small amount if you ever do use it. If staining occurs, try lying out your diapers in direct sunlight for a while. The sun acts as a natural bleaching agent and will not break down your fabric.

When switching to the dryer or hanging to line dry, make sure to remove any stuffers that didn’t come out of your pocket diapers during the wash cycle. This will help ensure a faster and more thorough drying process. In the dryer, use a High heat setting.


Stripping your diapers
We all hope stripping will never be necessary. However, sometimes, buildup of detergent occurs, or perhaps you used an oil based diaper cream, and your diapers just are not absorbing as much as they used to. This is when stripping may be needed.

To strip your diapers of oil-based creams, we recommend using a small amount of Dawn, or grease fighting dish detergent. Do not use any detergent that includes bleach. If you have noticed any specific spots where absorbency is compromised rub a small amount of the dawn into those spots. Otherwise, just squirt some dawn (not too much, one squirt for a second or two is more than enough) into your washing machine with the diapers. Now run the machine on hot without any more detergent until you don’t see any suds left when you look inside during the agitate cycle.

To strip your diapers of detergent buildup, you should just run them through the wash on hot until you do not see any suds during the agitate cycle.


Beeba Bottoms Wool Cover Care
When in use, they do not need to be washed immediately if they become damp. The natural oil in wool keeps the covers water resistant and cleans them naturally. Simply air dry and re-use for up to 1-2 weeks, or until you notice excessive wetness, or an odor which remains once dry. Should they get soiled, they will need to be hand-washed in tepid water using a mild soap or wool wash. (DO NOT USE WOOLITE!) Allow the wool cover to soak for 15 minutes. Then gently squeeze out most of the moisture. Do not wring or twist the wool cover. To remove excess water roll the wool cover in-between two dry, clean towels and then lay the wool cover flat to dry.

Note: You should lanolize each time you wash if you are not using lanolin based wool wash. If you are using a lanolin based wool wash, you may not need to separately lanolize.


To lanolize your wool soaker:
Just add ¼ tsp of lanolin to 1 cup of water and melt it in the microwave. Combine the melted lanolin and a few drops of mild soap or wool wash in a pail or a sink of tepid water, stirring the lanolin mixture well. Add the wool soaker, allowing it to soak for at least 15 minutes. Then gently squeeze most of the moisture out. Do not wring or twist the wool cover. To remove excess water, roll the wool cover between two dry, clean towels and then lay the wool cover flat to dry.
