Cloth Diapering 101

Cotton, AIO, PUL, wool… the choices are mind-boggling. Our cloth diapering 101 pages makes it simple so you can get cute cloth on your baby's bottom – and enjoy the cost and environmental savings!

Cloth diapers have so many advantages:

  • Comfortable for baby
  • Budget-friendly
  • Good for the environment
  • Easy to use
  • Super cute!

The last reason is probably my favorite – but all the others (and more) are so true too! Modern cloth diapers are quick and easy to use, and they're easy to keep clean.

Cloth diapering is also a perfect fit with another option for the natural baby:
Elimination Communication (where you respect your baby's intelligent, inborn signals that he/she needs to potty).

Modern Fluff Really Works!

We've got it pretty good as parents today. It's easy to fit cloth diapering into our modern lifestyles! There are a wide range of styles, fabrics, and even fun patterns of “fluff” for you to choose from.

It's quick and easy to get started with your little one. Just get a simple cloth “stash” together and get them on your baby! I recommend you get a few different types of diapers to begin with. That gives you the chance to find out what works well for your baby and your budget. Once you know what you like, build up to the number of diapers you want (have a diaper that didn't work for you? Gently-used cloth diapers sell well!)

If you're good with a sewing machine you can also experiment with plenty of patterns created by other moms 😀

You can take a cloth diapered baby anywhere with you. You can even travel with cloth baby diapers if you want to.

A few accessories, like wet-bags, a sturdy pail, and your favorite laundry soap, are all you need to finish out your cloth diaper supplies. Cloth diapering is a baby-friendly and environmentally friendly choice.

With easy to use cloth diapers in unique fabrics and designs, good diaper pails, and a simple washing routine, cloth diapers really are a family friendly choice!
