I personally like flannel for fitteds--I use 7 layers & that will contain two pees for my DD (but I can *tell* that it's wet after one, so I can change as soon as possible, she has sensitive skin). Not everyone likes flannel, because some flannels get really pilly for a while (if you keep washing, it will loose the pills and soften up even more), and it's hard to tell sometimes what one will do. I like to use Killington flannel (a thicker flannel, normally cream-colored)...
PUL can indeed be dyed! The fabric backing (substrate) that the PU film is laminated to is normally polyester, so a dye that works on polyester should work on your PUL. Another option would be to use acrylic paints (thinned a little with water), I've seen some pics of painted PUL that was very pretty! The problem that you face is really that you'll be overdying, so you need to keep your base color(s) in mind when you choose your color. If you dye the pink PUL cut...

Resale shops sell products "as is" and they are not always safe because of the use and abuse they've been through, with missing parts, breaks, etc. Actually, the way the Act is worded, it *does* affect resale. The CPSC has made an official...

Carter's makes them for one, I bought 100% cotton pajamas for my DS at Target. They have a hang tag on them that...
Those who are wondering how the laws apply to cloth diapers specifically, as well as why I *don't* think we should be asking to be excluded (I am talking about cloth diaper WAHMs specifically, not toymakers--I don't make toys, so I'll leave that up to someone else )...I wrote this article after having realized what a unique opportunity this is to finally differentiate between disposable and cloth diapers in the minds of consumers. Disposable diaper manufacturers took...

You will still be able to make the choice between buying polyester (which is considered to be naturally flame retardant and...
LOL, so I'm not the only one in bed with all the kiddos and DH hiding on the couch? Lovin' the new forum names
Very funny
OMGosh, the new title is *so* funny! My DS (2.5 years old, nurses occasionally when he gets jealous of his little sis) keeps asking me if I'll go to college with him...
