Holy Crap! I think I want to cloth diaper. Now what?
My absolute number one piece of advice is, don’t stock up on all one brand or style of cloth diaper before you have had a chance to use it. I know you may be excited. Maybe you even found a crazy good deal on a bunch of cloth diapers. But this is seriously the biggest mistake new to cloth parents make. The truth is no cloth diaper will work for every baby and you will find there are things you like and dislike about certain brands or styles. No one wants to be stuck with a whole stash of diapers they hate or worse, can’t use.
Grab a small variety of brands and styles first. Maybe try a cloth diaper rental. Once you have a little experience under your belt grab more of what you love.
Ok, so tell me more about these brands and styles.
My Top Recommendations: These are my favorite cloth diapers and brands, rash creams, detergents and wet bags. They are brands that haven’t let me down, from companies I trust. Remember, no cloth diaper works for everyone. Just because I love them doesn’t mean you are guaranteed to love them as well. But it does give you a good starting place on where to begin looking.
Types of Cloth Diapers Explained: I’m not going to lie. Even with all of my experience I find it hard to simple this down. Honestly, what made me feel ready to do cloth was getting my hands on one. I saw that they were actually simple. And that I could do it. So I’m saying this stuff is good to know, but now knowing everyone right off the bat won’t make it impossible to cloth diaper.
