My washing machine doesn't have a hot setting, only warm. What would be the best way to strip my diapers? I have a mix of mostly prefolds but some microfiber and hemp inserts. I've never really...

Yeah, I pull the Moby up over her head, and that does seem to help somewhat...we are also working on seeing if she'll nap in a swing--sometimes she drifts off to sleep in it, but seldom stays asleep!

DD is 8 weeks. Still way too early to be worrying about this, I know, and for now the fact that she will solidly sleep in the Moby or mei tai has been a godsend. But, I can see a point in the future...
