Would this be ok to do? Cloth diaper question!?
Wow, Okay I bought cloth diapers when my daughter was born. I was alone and did not want to ask anyone for anything, so I bought those diapers and diaper liners, so when she poop I can just dispose of the liner and wash out the diaper. This is what I did; - to dispose of poop filled diaper,- dispose of liner- rinse everything out of diaper that I could possibly rinse out,- drop in pail filled with 3 parts water to 1 part dry bleach,- when pail filled to as much as 15 diapers, I would then rinse diapers again from bleach water and wash by hand in Dreft for babies laundry,-rinse again, ring out water and hang. It felt special , like breast feeding.

Thinking about starting to use cloth diapers instead of disposable?
When my younger brothers were babies, my family used cloth diapers with one, and disposables with the other. I was lucky enough to get to change them. :) With my baby on the way, I've made the decision to go cloth. Environment is of course one of the most obvious issues. Also, with disposables, you are putting unnatural materials and chemicals from production close to your baby's skin. Finally, the cost makes a difference. The cons would of course be time and effort....but that is if you clean your own. We had a service with the one brother. We simply threw the dirty diapers into a provided hamper, set them outside, they came and picked it up and left a fresh stack of clean diapers for us. I checked the cost for this service in my city and it STILL comes out cheaper than buying disposables. *But by putting all of this, I am not criticizing anyone's choices.

Whats your experience with Cloth Diapers? Which is best? ?
hello, well i used cloth diapers for my 1st baby & then when i had my 2nd child pampers came out & of course i loved using them because i could get them easily whenever i wanted to. but today's economy is awful so it really is your choice even though u say it's no problem washing them it does cost u money to use the detergeant & bleach & electricity & then comes the dryer. so i think it's kind of even with disposable diapers. try it for awhile & see if it's really a solution money wise. bb

There are so many different types of cloth diapers and brands of cloth diapers on Amazon. Not to mention, all the other places to buy cloth diapers online. If you are just getting started with cloth diapering, how do you know where to start? .and that, my friend, is why I have put together this guide. You will want to answer the following questions: â¢ What style of cloth diapers do you want to use? â¢ Which type of material should you choose? â¢ How many diapers do you need to get started? â¢ What is your starting budget? â¢ Do you want to use a certain brand? Do not worry if you do not know the answers just yet. In this article, we will go over each of these questions to help give you a better idea of what to look for when looking for cloth diapers on Amazon. There are a few different material types used in cloth diapers. Maybe you have a preference, or maybe it does not matter to you. Either way, it does not hurt to be aware of the different materials available. How much do they cost? Yes, cloth diapers have a high upfront cost. You might find yourself with a case of sticker shock when presented with the total price. You can expect to spend a bit more upfront than you would on a couple boxes of disposables. A couple hundred dollars is pretty standard, although if you are on a really tight budget and want the cheapest diapers, you could probably spend a lot less. Cloth diapers can cost anywhere from a few dollars each to more than twenty dollars each. Yes, the cost per diaper might seem insanely high. Once you have your collection of cloth diapers, you should not have to buy any more. Unless you want to, of course. If you do not have any cloth diapers yet, you might be able to save money by buying them in a set on Amazon. This means you could end up with six identical diapers or a set of pre-selected colors and patterns. But if you are on a tight budget, color and pattern should not be a major factor in your purchasing decision. If you already have some cloth diapers and just want to add a few more to your collection, then you might prefer to choose a single diaper based on color or pattern. Here's an overview of the nine different types of cloth diapers to choose from. Each has its advantages and disadvantages - but to save you a lot of time and frustration, I have done a lot of the work for you already. This list is not ranked by price or quality - I have simply found some of the highest rated cloth diapers on Amazon for each of the types of diapers. Flats are large squares of single-layered fabric that can be folded in different ways. They are the original one-size diapers. They have a lot more flexibility that any other diaper, and can fit any size child from newborn to toddler. Flat diapers are not waterproof, so you will want to use a diaper cover over them. This is a 6-pack of unbleached 100 % cotton, birds eye weave, unbleached, tan or ivory colored flat cloth diapers. Prefolds are rectangular pieces of cloth made of multiple layers of fabric, all sewn together to make one thicker diaper. They are not quite as versatile as a flat, but are a bit easier to use. Like flats, prefolds also require a diaper cover, since they are very absorbent but not completely waterproof. This is a 12-pack of unbleached premium cotton, pre-washed prefolds that fit newborn babies to toddlers (10-30 lbs.) Fitteds are typically made of cotton, bamboo, hemp or fleece. Again, these diapers are very absorbent, but not waterproof, so you will still need to wear a diaper cover over them. They are a lot more intuitive than flats are prefolds, since they do not require any folding. Simply wrap it around your baby's bottom, secure, and place a cover over it. This is a two-count of one-size overnight cloth diapers have snap buttons and come with two hemp inserts. Contours are a hybrid of prefolds and fitteds. You do not need to use pins or a snappi - they were made to fit inside most diaper covers. So just lay it down and secure the cover around your baby. This is a two-count of contour soaker cloth diapers. These are a cross between cloth and disposable diapers. Sometimes referred to as an all-in-two, these diapers consist of a shell. You just need to place an insert inside. If you want to cloth diaper, but are not thrilled about having to wash poop out of them, this is the system for you. Simply toss away the dirty disposable liner, put your cover in the washable wet bag, and you are set. This is a reusable hybrid cloth diaper with a snap shell, and it comes in a variety of colors and patterns. It fits babies 8-30 lbs. This popular diaper has a pocket that needs to be stuffed with a microfiber, cotton, bamboo, or hemp insert. They have a waterproof lining on the outside, so you do not need to use a cover with this one. This is a 6-pack of one-size pocket diapers with double leg gussets (for advanced leak protection.) - not to mention the handy wet bag you will receive. Related: Prefolds vs. Pocket Diapers: Which Cloth Diapers are Best? They are similar to pockets, but instead have two openings in the pocket (one on each end). Again, no diaper covers are required. These are similar to pocket diapers but instead of stuffing a pocket, you snap an insert inside the diaper. They are basically the same thing as a hybrid. You do not have to use disposable liners, though, if you would rather keep waste to a minimum. This cloth diaper is one-size (8-35 lb.) and comes in a variety of colors and patterns. All-in-ones are the easiest, albeit the priciest, and are the most similar to a disposable. They are very similar to all-in-twos. The only difference is that the absorbent lining is sewn to the diaper, so you do not have to snap it on. This all-in-one cloth diaper is one-size (8 lbs.) and has a super absorbent core. It also comes in a super cute bumblebee pattern. Now we know about the nine main types of cloth diapers - continue reading to find out how many you will need. Related: Prefolds vs. Pocket Diapers | Which cloth diapers are best? How many cloth diapers do you need? In the beginning, you might find yourself changing your newborn's diaper up to twelve times a day. As babies get a little older, that number should decrease a bit. Still, you do not need nearly as many cloth diapers when starting out as you would when buying disposables. Plan to start out with 20-25 cloth diapers. You can always buy more later, but because you will need to wash them every 2-3 days anyway, that should be plenty to get started.
