BabyKicks is a family owned and operated business located in Maryland's eastern shore. They were founded in 2000.
How many diapers do I need?
If you are using BabyKicks One-Size exclusively, we recommend a minimum of 24 diapers. This may vary based on your child's wetting habits and age when you begin cloth diapering. You'll want enough diapers to last two days. Remember, wash at least every other day and rotate your stash evenly.

How do I wash my new diapers?
BEFORE your first use on baby:
BabyKicks Suggested Washing Routine:
Wash once in cold water with enzyme free detergent.
Wash once in hot water adding 1/3 cup baking soda.
Rinse in cold.
Tumble dry on medium heat to reduce wear on fibers or line dry.
What to do for "stinky" hemp?
Try washing diapers or Joey-Bunz in hot water with no detergent, 1/3 cup baking soda and 1/4 cup vinegar. Do this a few times until the water no longer looks soapy at the end of the cycle. Caution: Vinegar is acidic and can break down the diaper's water-proof cover, so use this method sparingly on the diapers themselves.
If the smell remains, you may want to try boiling your hemp (not the diapers) for five minutes.
After you get the smell out of your hemp, be sure to use baking soda on a regular basis to keep it from coming back.
Hanging to dry in the sun will also help remove stains & smells.
What detergent can I use?
Ingredients in certain detergents may ruin your cloth diapers or cause your baby to have a diaper rash. When washing cloth diapers, always use a detergent free of perfumes, dyes, whiteners, brighteners, softeners, enzymes, or other fabric enhancers. Using too much detergent may cause cloth diapers to leak. When using detergents not made for cloth diapers, use 1/2 the amount of detergent suggested by the detergent manufacturer for a load of 18-24 diapers.

What should I avoid?
Do not use extra additives in your wash (like baking soda or vinegar). These ingredients are unnecessary and will cause problems in your diapers.
Do not use fabric softeners.
Do not boil your diapers.
Do not use rash creams without a barrier between your baby's bottom and the diaper.
If your cloth diapers are made with hook and loop closures, do not wash them with natural fibers. Natural fibers produce lint that will build up in the diaper's closures. This will shorten the lifespan of your closures.
Are diaper rash creams ok to use?
Diaper rashes should be treated according to your physician's recommendations. If you need to use a rash cream, you should use a stay-dry liner or a piece of fleece between your baby's bottom and the diaper to prevent the cream from transferring onto the diapers.
