I get asked alot about cloth diapers. So I thought I would share the basics with you.
Cloth diapers have evolved so much from the stick pin and a piece of cloth. Usually when someone here's cloth diaper that's the first visual to pop in their heads. There are 5 basic types of cloth diapers. If you are considering cloth diapers here are the basics. As your baby grows, you may find yourself online again looking for different cloth diapers. I always suggest to parent get a starter pack of all the diapers. You may or may not use them but they are great backup options. Below I have included Meme's to easily share cloth diaper information.
I personally preferred pocket diapers because they were supper convenient. The bigger my son got the more of a heavy wetter he became. Now I prefer AIO diapers. They are perfect for night time diapers and heavy wetter.
Although cloth diapers have evolved over time, they do require extra work. You can expect 3-4 extra loads of laundry a week. I personally think a good stash of 60 diapers is ideal. However 20-30 cloth diapers is considered normal.
My son personally has about 80 cloth diapers. I change him every 2-3 hours just like with disposable diapers. We wash every 2-3 days. My son has sensitive skin so we wash his diapers with just plain water, twice. Every other wash we use Just The Basics Laundry Detergent . I've been cloth diapering 16 months with no stink, stains or build up.
