It’s been a few years since I was in the thick of cloth diapering, but boy did I love it when I was. With baby number 5 ready to arrive any day now, we still have our stash of cloth diapers ready to roll if we choose to head down that path again. Whether you’re new to using cloth diapers or a seasoned veteran, it can be a wee bit overwhelming at first. My #1 tip would be to explore the various options of cloth diaper types and see what’s available and a site that has one of the biggest selections of cloth diapers would be Diapers.com.
For many parents (and myself when I first got started) I wanted to know the diaper facts when it came to cloth diapering. How were they helping with the environment and I had a lot of questions. Questions like How do I wash & What Do I need. Everyone has their opinion of what works for them, so read, get informed and jump in. I also became part of some cloth diapering circles to learn more and share knowledge, the ladies over at The Simple Mom’s are talking cloth diapers quite a bit & they have a post talking about Fluff (another word for cloth diapers.)
There’s a lot of information when it comes to the Cloth Diaper How-to, but don’t get overwhelmed. Take a deep breath and get ready for some fun. Cloth is so incredibly adorable and great for your little ones bottom. You can search my site and even check out this post on some great cloth diaper facts I’ve had here from the past and other cloth diaper questions.
I’ve used a variety of types over the years and my top three favorite types of cloth diapers were the Pocket Diapers, All In One Diapers & the Diaper Covers. After trying more brands then I can even keep track of I definitely always fell back to Thirsties, BumGenius and Flip Cloth Diapers, all which are available at Diapers.com. Each of these is similar, but different in it’s own unique way, so check them out and all the information before you purchase.
Diapers.com also carries all the essential items you might need to get started – like a wet bag to keep your cloth diaper in between washes, sprayers or diaper pail liners, cloth diaper detergent & and even cloth wipes, which happen to be my favorites to add to cloth diapers.
