My journey with cloth diapers. From 23 years ago until now. #clothdiapers

My Intro to Cloth Diapers: Not Just Prefolds & Plastic Pants Anymore I have been around cloth diapers my entire life. As a child, my mother used cloth diapers on me. Can you picture it- prefolds and pins and plastic pants? I always wanted a big family, but diapers are so expensive! When I was a young adult, a friend was diapering her new baby and was using prefold diapers and diaper covers. This was a far cry from the plastic pants of my youth. Having no younger siblings, my only experience with diapers was with babysitting. All of the

Prepping Your New Cloth Diapers

Cloth diapers are an easy way to save money when you’re caring for a baby. Unlike disposables, cloth diapers are a one-time expense (unless you have to get the newest Genius Series print at each release). For some people, the upfront cost of cloth diapers can be a deterrent, although there are ways to build your stash without breaking the bank. To cloth diaper your baby full-time and wash every other day, we recommend having at least 24 diapers on hand.  Twenty-four bumGenius Freetime diapers are $399.  A 24-pack of bumGenius 4.0s is $384 while two dozen Elementals are $520.08. Regardless of

 
Cloth Diaper Basics: What IS a cloth diaper?
January 26, 2015 6:50 pm | by

This post is for the cloth diaper novice. In fact, it’s for the people who don’t even really know what a cloth diaper is. This is probably because disposable diapers have saturated the market so much so that many people today have either forgotten about cloth or (sadly) never even heard about this option. So, let’s go back to the question. What is a cloth diaper? For those who don’t know, a cloth diaper is a reusable piece of fabric that your baby wears to catch waste. So to put it simply, a cloth diaper is just like a disposable but

 
Real Mom Talk: Even MORE Benefits of Cloth Diapers
April 22, 2014 5:53 pm | by

There are a lot of benefits of cloth diapering– economical, environmental, and reports of earlier potty training or less diaper rash. What initially drew my family to cloth diapering was cost. My husband and I had been married a little less than two years, we were young, we didn’t have a ton of money, but we knew that I wanted to stay home with our baby if we could make it work. So when I was pregnant (as soon as I stopped puking eight times a day) I started researching ways to save money. Cloth diapers immediately came up. I

Cloth Diaper Creams

So you had your kids, they used the cloth diapers, and now everyone’s in college (or kindergarten, or preschool, or whatever) and those diapers are not getting used anymore. What are you supposed to do with what you have left? Some people use cloth diapers with the express intent to resell the diapers when they’re done using them. And that’s definitely an option. But not the only one! Lending/giving diapers to friends is another way to go. A good portion of our tiny newborn diapers have been lent out to friends. In 2010, I was due with my youngest and

 
Cloth Diapers 101: Types of Cloth Diapers
March 19, 2012 1:46 pm | by

It has been more than a year since we shared information about the different styles or types of cloth diapers currently available. There are a lot of new products that have been introduced in the last year, so we thought a little refresher course might help. Just like any new hobby or skill you learn, parenting and especially cloth diapering, comes with its own jargon. I was really confused when I first started, then I got the hang of it. I felt pretty confident when I joined the Cotton Babies team only to learn there was a lot more to
