Many parents get in a diaper rut and don’t realize that their initial choice in diapers might not have been the best. Someone gifts you big boxes of a certain brand at your baby shower and you just stick with that brand for consistency’s sake. You are on a tight budget and automatically assume a store brand is the best way to save money. If there is a quality diaper on the store shelves that can save you money and keep your kid dry and prevent leaks, wouldn’t you want to know about it? Change your diaper buying habits and you will be pleasantly surprised how much cash you will keep in your wallet and how great the new diapers perform.

Are you thinking about cloth diapering your new baby? Or, maybe you’re tired of buying boxes of expensive diapers only to see them go into the trash. Cloth diapers have made a huge comeback in recent years and for many reasons: they are environmentally friendly, relatively inexpensive, and chemical-free. They are also incredibly cute on a little baby bum and come in a variety of colors, patterns, and designs. While cloth diapers have their definite pros, any small amount of research will show you that it can easily become an overwhelming and sometimes confusing world of diapering, sending your mind in circles and wondering if you should make the leap. If you are considering cloth diapering, here are some simple things that any veteran cloth diapering mama will tell you to help you start and adjust to this new venture!
My daughter, Mary, will be 3 at the end of November. She’s a strong-willed, stubborn-as-her-mama kind of gal who likes to do things on her own timeline.
For example: Mary started crawling at 5 months. I was shocked, and assumed she’d be able to trick-or-treat with her big brother when she’d be 11 months. Nope. She got really good at crawling; deftly maneuvering across the room on her bottom with her legs propelling her forward (think: ninja-gorilla).
SPOTLIGHT ON “GREEN” AND ECO-FRIENDLY DIAPERS: If you have a baby or young child, there’s no avoiding diapers. While cloth diapering your child is the ultimate eco-friendly choice, it simply isn’t for some people. If you care about your environmental impact, but still want the convenience of using a disposable diaper, we simply love Bambo Nature Diapers.
This is a REALLY great tip for the times when you look at your little one and think, “how does that much poop come out of such a little body?” Diapers can only hold so much explosion before the poop has to go somewhere. That somewhere is usually up their back. Whether this is the reason onesies are designed this way or not, this is a great resource for this unavoidable moment in your little one’s day to day.
Congratulations! You’ve chosen to use cloth diapers. Now all your friends and family members have proof that you’re a little crazy! The truth is, cloth diapers have come a looooong way in recent years and are at least as easy to put on your wiggly worm child as disposables. All you need now are these tips on how to properly care for and clean your cloth diapers. With a little TLC, your cloth diapers can make it through several kids and may still even be re-sale worthy. Check out these 10 tips on how to make your cloth diapers last for years and be sure to add your own ideas in the comments.
