The Cloth Diaper Guide is designed for you to understand all options and important choices you will need to make in choosing the best cloth diaper for your baby.
Todays cloth diapers are modern, stylish and sophisticated. No more pins or bulky cloth with sticky elastic covers. Instead you will find cotton, organic cotton, hemp or bamboo blends of material that have an outer protective shell and are trim fitting and beautifully designed.
Refer to the following chart to estimate how many diapers you will need per 24 hour period.
|Babies Age||Cloth Diapers per 24 Hours|
|6 months and up||6-9 diapers|
So, if using a All In One Diaper and you are washing your diapers at first every two days, you would want to buy about 24 diapers.
In some cases AIO’s come with a pocket to insert a stuffer in for extra nighttime protection. Usually, a stuffer will be included with the purchase of the diaper, but sometimes it is nice to buy a couple extra stuffers for just-in-case situations.
After determining the type of cloth diaper you will want to consider these additional options to your cloth diaper choose.
Regular cloth diapers tend to be less expensive then organic cloth diapers. For example the bumGenius One Size costs about $17.95, while the bumGenius Organic AIO One size costs about $24.95.
Keep in mind that depending on the manufacturer if you buy in quantities (usually 3, 6, or 12) the price of the cloth diapers will decrease usually by 10-15%. The savings will add up over time versus disposables.
You might want to purchase a diaper sprayer which can easily be attached to your toilet to flush the solids out of a dirty diaper.
