It's better for your baby, better for the environment(did you know a disposable diaper takes 200-500 years to decompose?), better for your pocketbook, and better on the eyes!
Who could resist that cuteness???
There are tons of different cloth options, and we can talk about them sometime if you're interested. But for now I'm just going to share about Flips, which is the only type we're using right now. My crunchy friends know me as Flip diapers' number one fan. And for a good reason- these diapers are great!
All you have to do is lay the insert into the cover(I'm using the stay-dry inserts here), and then snap it on! And as long as the cover doesn't get poop on it, you can lay it out to dry and re-use it a couple of times without having to wash. Very convenient!
We use cloth wipes too. I find it's easier to just be able to throw the wipes into the diaper pail with the diapers, instead of finding a separate trash can for the wipes. Another thing I love about using cloth wipes is that I know exactly what's going on my baby's skin, since I make my own wipes solution. And I can't believe it took me 2 years to figure this out, but a couple of days ago I discovered that my cloth wipes will fit perfectly in the little disposable wipes cases for travel.
You can spend a lot on pretty wetbags if you want, but I like to use the cheap waterproof camping bags from Walmart. You can get a set of three (small, medium, and large) for only $10.
It feels good to have my baby back in cloth again, and I'm sure he's loving it too. The solution to our stink problems turned out to be a combination of Bac-out and switching detergents, and everything is as good as new!
Do you use cloth with your babies? What's your favorite type of diaper?
