How i wash cloth diapers using the Laundry Pod

When I first started cloth diapering i started feeling overwhelmed by having to wash all these cloths by hand! At first I didn't mind but after the 3rd or 4th month of having to wash them weekly I started feeling the strain in my hands. One day i was browsing pintrest when i came across a pin showing the Laundry Pod and it read "Portable washing machine for small spaces". I eagerly opened the page and i was excited about this Laundry Pod. For weeks i obsessed on it. I looked at pictures and watched videos all over the web. A month later i was able to save money to buy it. The original price was for $100 plus shipping but i was able to find it on Ebay for $80 with shipping included.       So when you look at the Laundry Pod it resembles a giant salad spinner. It has a little handle on top that is used to spin your clothes. Many videos can be found on Youtube on how it works. 
     I created this video with pictures and text on how I use my Laundry Pod to wash my cloth …

Why I Cloth Diaper my baby. pros and cons on cloth diapers

When i had my son Seth in 2014 i was using disposable diapers. When they are so little the pack of diapers brings A LOT! After the 1st year he started using size 5 and every month i was spending $40+ on disposable diapers and another $20+ on over night diapers. This was really breaking my pockets. After a couple of months I researched on saving money on diapers. I stumbled across a cloth diaper blog and I absolutely loved the idea about them!
My son has now been cloth diapered for a year and I can't complain. I've had a year experience so I can tell you my pros and cons about them. 
Cons
1. You need to most likely touch baby poo but you can always wear gloves :) 2. Extra laundry 3. Laundry service can be quite expensive starting at $20 a week 4. Extra water, electricity a detergent to wash them 5. Very expensive upfront 
Now these 5 cons are enough to scare anybody away but there is a solution for them all except the extra laundry con.  If you wear gloves then your bare hands …

Gerber jar party favors

Sesame street party favors!



I am using 2.5oz gerber jars  (the ones that bring the meat in them ). I washed them and took the  gerber label off

Next I filled them with medium milk chocolate m&ms


1. printed some sesame street character faces on card stock paper 2. Drew a circle around the face  (my circles are approximately 2x inches) 3. Put tape on it and cut 

Originally I wanted to hot glue my little faces on the lids but that didn't work too well so i decided to just tape them on and cut off any excess tape on the sides. Worked wonderfully!  



Don't feel like making them yourself? See me at PRINTABLEPARTIES12.ETSY.COM
