Product of the Week-2

At Top to Bottom Baby Boutique we love to be able to offer great discounts to our readers through our Product of the Week feature.

For the week of April 28 – May 5 we are featuring Thirsties Wipes at a 10 % discount! The discount is easy to use because you don’t need to do anything but add them to your cart! We make it easy for YOU to save!!
Thirsties Wipes are an 8 inch by 8 inch, 2 ply textured cotton velour & delicate micro fleece wipe. These wipes will fold and fit perfectly in a recycled wipe container or wipes warmer. They come in a pack of 6 wipes, are machine washable and are Made in the USA.

“Reusable cloth baby wipes are an alternative for both disposable diaper wipes and can also be used for wiping up little baby noses, hands, and messes. In addition to cleaning diaper changes, we also use ours as little burpies, quick wipe-ups after mealtime, and I even keep a stash of my own for refreshing facial wipes and make-up removal.  They are so soft and irresistible.”

Thirsties Wipes are perfect for delicate baby skin and you are able to control the solution you want to use to cleanse your baby. Which makes them the best wipe for Sensitive Skin!

Charlie’s Soap

Did you notice what we added to the store? It’s been up for a couple weeks, but I’m not sure if you all realized it was there!
We’re so excited to carry our first liquid Cloth Diaper safe laundry detergent.
Did you know that Charlie’s Soap was first created to clean up oils?
“Our All-Purpose Cleaner is a multi-surface cleaning agent developed for hands-on cleaning of industrial machinery.”
So I know what you’re thinking, it can’t be safe for my diapers…
“Our detergents contain no ingredients or additives that are designed to bind to fabrics, and contain no antibacterial agents. Subsequently, Charlie’s Soap is residue free. Since your results using Charlie’s Soap may vary due to your particular water conditions and your baby's sensitivity to bacteria, we suggest you follow a successful procedure and determine which is best for you.”
Charlie’s soap is great and comes in three different forms. Powdered Laundry detergent, Liquid Laundry detergent, and as an All purpose cleaner for all those other grimy duties.
You can purchase Charlie’s Soap Products directly from our website.
In honor of Charlie’s Soap coming to our store, let’s give some away!
On Lucky Top to Bottom Baby Boutique blog reader will win
1 Bottle of Charlie’s All Purpose Cleaner
1 Bottle Charlie’s Liquid Laundry Detergent
1Bag Charlie’s Powdered Laundry Detergent

(must do this for all others to count)

Diapering 101

When you schedule a Diapering 101 class with us we will bring the fluffy love to your door. Invite a few friends over and we’ll educate them on all things Cloth.

There are many options when it comes to cloth, Prefolds & Covers, All-in-Ones, Pocket Diapers, and Fitted Diapers. Depending on which system you choose to use, you’ll need a different number of diapers to begin with.

Here is a run down of the suggested amounts of diapers you will need to start out with any system.

Prefolds and Covers

  • 2-3 dozen prefolds
  • 1 diaper cover/4 prefolds
  • Some sort of fastener is optional


  • 18-24 diapers if you use AIOs exclusively. If you want a few on hand for outings or other times when they would be convenient, then 3-4 would be fine.

Pocket Diapers and Inserts

  • 18-24 diapers if you plan on using pocket diapers exclusively. If you want a few on hand for outings or other times when they would be convenient, then 3-4 would be fine.
  • At least as many inserts as you have pocket diapers. Some inserts are more trim and you may need 2 for daytime and even more for nighttime use.

Fitted Diapers & Covers

  • 2-3 dozen diapers
  • 1 cover/4 fitteds

Extra’s that make Cloth Diapering easier

  • Liners (optional, but saves diapers from staining and will help keep baby feeling dry)
  • 1-1/2 cloth wipes for every 1 diaper (ie 24 diapers = 36 wipes)(optional, but so easy to use and throw in the wash with the diapers)
  • Cloth Wipe Solution
  • 12 doublers (depending on what you use and the needs of your baby)
  • Wool Covers and Wool Longies
  • Wool wash
  • Dryer Balls
  • Baby Legs
  • Things you’ll need no matter what system you choose

    Product of the Week

    At Top to Bottom Baby Boutique we love to be able to offer great discounts to our readers through our Product of the Week feature.

    For the week of April 14 – April 20th we are featuring Bummis Super Whisper Wrap at a 10 % discount! The discount is easy to use because you don’t need to do anything but add them to your cart! We make it easy for YOU to save!!


    The Super Whisper Wrap is a VERY dependable cloth diaper cover with a proven track record. A mainstay in any 2 part cloth diapering system, it combines extreme functionality and the latest in cloth diapering technology with fun and colorful prints. And this premium but affordable cloth diapering product not only looks marvelous, but also has a remarkably good fit on most babies.

    The generous cut of this cover makes it suitable for any type of FLAT or CONTOURED cloth diaper, or any type of PRE-FORMED, VELCRO OR SNAP-CLOSING cloth diaper.

    It features a durable waterproof layer concealed within 2 layers of ultra soft polyester fabric so that no laminate touches your baby’s skin. Although this marvelous fabric is waterproof and will stand up to the rigors of industrial washing, it is comfortable for baby - and much more breathable than plastic or vinyl.

    Special features of the Super Whisper Wrap:
    • Very adjustable. Hook and loop closures with an innovative overlap design that ensures a custom fit on any baby

    • Durable, heavy-duty latex free elastic around legs and tummy which will not wear out with repeated washing.

    • Soft, smooth polyester knit bindings for a comfortable, stretchy fit, and a leak-proof seal.

    • Super-sized fold-back wash tabs to protect your laundry from rogue attacks by hook and loop closures.

    • Generous sizing means fewer cloth diaper covers to buy, while still assuring a great fit.


    Along with our Product of the week, we’d love to see your little one sporting the product you would feature. One lucky mama will win Wee Essentials Wipe cubes just for linking up with us!

    We will be having a Blog Carnival every week when we announce the product of the week, where you can show us your little one sporting the fluff. As we get this feature off the ground we’re going to be offering up a giveaway to anyone who links up a post!

    To be eligible for the drawing:

    You must post a blog showcasing your little one in the fluff you want to see us feature as the Product of the Week (even if it’s a product we don’t carry, please let us know why you want us to carry it!)

    Also include our logo & link back to the blog or website.


    Come back here and link up & Leave us a comment that you did!

    (MUST do first entry to get extra entries. Please leave a comment for each extra entry you complete)
