I didn’t even know modern cloth diapers existed until a couple of years ago. A friend said she was thinking about getting some and I immediately thought, “No way! I don’t want to deal with those pins poking me and the plastic piece to avoid leaks!” Boy was I wrong. Over the years cloth diapers have become easy to use and super cute!
A couple confessions…there are things that I don’t like about cloth diapers, but I choose to use them because I feel they are a good investment and I feel better knowing my diapers aren’t sitting in a landfill.
Things to be aware of:
1-You will have to wash dirty diapers every 2-3 days.
2-You may have to change diapers more often than with a disposable (depending on your kiddo)
3-When your kiddo needs a double insert (like for a long nap) their pants/bottoms will appear bulkier b/c the more inserts = a fuller diaper.
I can’t go into all the details about cloth diapering, or I’ll end up writing a novel :) I use cloth wipes too, which add to the savings! I got my diapers from fuzzibunz.com and have been really happy with them. Here is a video on the “one size” diapers, which I prefer so I can use them as they grow:
As you can see, there are tons of videos and information on the web, so do some research and see what best fits your needs! Pass this a long to any parent-to-be. Many women are not aware of cloth diapers and all the benefits it has to offer!
