Cloth Diaper 101 TOP
Cloth Diaper 101
We have heard the horror stories about cloth diapering from our parents; the leaking, the boiling, the pokes and sticks from the pins, the diaper services. NO MORE!!
Welcome to Cloth Diaper 101. Here we tackle the questions, fears and concerns that we personally have faced along our cloth journey and have heard from other cloth diapering families. Cloth can be intimidating but we are here to help you make the best decisions for you, your baby and your family.
Remember you can always make an appointment to stop by and see the diapers and have any questions or concerns answered.
Cloth diapers have evolved in ease of use, performance, styles, and price from when the first nappys were introduced in 1887 here in the U.S. Cloth Diapers have evolved from the small squares that you have to fold and pin to now the fun easy to use diapers you see ccovbering babies bums worldwide.
Below are common questions we encountered along our journey of cloth.
Because of the many different styles of closures from Hook and Loop to Snaps to the upgraded pins (Snappi) cloth diapers are just as easy to use as conventional disposable diapers. Once you decide on the type of closure that you like you simply change your baby and go. It really is as simple as disposable diapers.
This was a big factor that I had to make my husband see when we started cloth diapering. I started out buying used diapers which saved me money in the start but I wont lie, it is a large cost upfront when buying your diapers. But then when you have created your stash, thats it, your done buying diapers. No more late night run to the store because you ran out or buying the wrong size and now your stuck with diapers you cant use. You can buy diapers that last you from birth to potty training and as long as you use the correct care. You invested your money into your childs health and saved movey over time. Cloth diapers can be looked at as an investment because they can be used for multiple children even generations if taken care of properly. And cloth can be resold once you are done as well. It really is an investment.
Cloth diapering is like speaking a foreign language, too bad you cant use it as school credit!! There are some terms that will help you figure what type of diaper(s) you are looking at.
Because of the thickness of diaper creams and the ingredients it is better if you use a liner or use a disposable diaper when your child is using diaper cream. The cream becomes smeared into the diaper and you either have to scrub it out or LOTS of washing is needed. Some creams can create such a barrier that it penetrates the inner layer and ruins the waterproofing of your diaper.
We all know how hard traveling is with a child let alone doing it with cloth diapers. If you are going on a short trip then you can simply have your diapers ready and stuffed in the diaper bag and then throw your soiled ones into a wetbag and then wash them when you get to your destination. Make sure to get some quarters in case you have to use the local laundry mat to wash your diapers.
Having a wetbag or even a shopping bag to keep the dirty and the clean diapers seperated will keep you from having to do an emergency laundry mat run. By having diapers pre-stuffed it will allow you to do a quick diaper change at yoru stops and by utilizing the hybrid diaper systems it makes travel much less stressful. You should expect to take at least a dozen to two diapers with you so that you have extras in case of a emergency diaper change or you cant make it to the laundry as soon as you arrive.
These are some of the basic questions that I have been asked or had when I first started cloth diapering. If there is a question you have that is not answered here PLEASE ASK!!! There are never ever dumb questions. Cloth diapering can be overwhelming and we are here to make sure you and your family have a smooth transition into the cloth diapering community.
