i posted a question but didnt get many answers :( so someone gave me the link to this forum and i figured i would ask here since time is flying and i would like to place an order on which ever type/s you ladies reccomend. so here is the question i posted:
i am very interested in cloth diapering my baby girl for many reasons one of them being that i think she will inherit sensitive skin like her father, instead of trial and error and having her be in pain i rather go with cloth from the get go. i was looking at the grovia diapers which used to be gro baby they came out with a AI2 diaper which can be used with cloth or bio soakers almost like g diapers. also i am kind of confused as to how they get washed/ stripped . i am open to any and all reccomendations, as well as tips thanks ladies

Okay new to all of this and just read a BUNCH on info from these threads and just have a few questions! :]

Which of all the types of cloth diapers leaks the least? Are there certain kinds that you use for certain things...like using mostly one type while at home, one type while out on long trips, one type for grocery shopping or short trips, one type for sleeping..etc? Or is there one that's good for it all?

I am wanting to get a few different types of the cloth diapers, but am curious to know which type works best for certain situations so I can order the amount I need accordingly :]

Thanks!! :D

I'm going to sound like the dumbest newbie ever and I accept that. :roll:
I'm 21 weeks pregnant right now and I want to use cloth diapers. I have a friend who uses them and lives nearby to me, but I want a second opinion or whatever. :arrow:
I want to know better on how to take care of the cloth diapers. I'm not worried about what I need because at worse I can figure that out as I go along. I've been doing research on it, but I want to know from people who actually use them.
This is what I know so far: Need about 24 premie size Indian prefolds, 3 or 4 Proraps newborn size, 3 or 4 Econobum covers. (I do laundry a lot so I only need enough to last me about 2 or 3 days.) I know I'll need to use a special detergent, but if need be I can use Tide powder detergent with not many additives or stain fighting/color boosting stuff as well as to use about 1/3 of the detergent I'd use in a regular wash. I know I should soak them in a cold water then do a hot water wash twice, once with soap and the other without. I can hang them to dry in the sun to help fight stains. I also know that I should wash these about 3 times before ever using them once. What else should I know about the care of these diapers or what have I got wrong? I'm just saying the basics. I'll figure out about vinegar or baking soda later. I add that in the soak over night, right?
Please someone be a friend to me so I can buddy up with another cloth diaper user. I get tired of trying to explain to my grandmother who was forced to use cloth diapers for her kids since disposables weren't made yet that I'm making the right choice for my son and me.
Thanks.

Okay so I'm super curious about cloth diapers because I'm trying to find ways to save money now that I have a two year old still in diapers and an infant. I'm more looking at them for the two year old, but heres my list of concerns.

I only wash with cold water detergents, and hypo allergenic, I don't use bleach either because I still believe an acid is bad for a babies skin, which is what bleach is for the most part.
I'm worried about him wetting through them at night or on days where we're so busy running errands it can be up to six or eight hours between diaper changings (I know it sounds bad, but we're in and out of the car and trying to take care of everything in one day)
I'm a major germaphobe and he does massive wet diapers sometimes if he gets even the slightest bit of juice.
Last but not least, I have no idea what cloth diaper brand works, or how they work at all.

Hello! I am pregnant and I would love to try cloth diapers this time although I feel like I'm clueless! I have been looking at fuzzibunz and as of now I think that's the way I'm headed. The thin liner that you take our and toss out in the toilet is called what and where do I purchase them? If I go with the fuzzibunz how many should I purchase and what are the other things I need to get started?! Thank you in advance! I'm really excited to do this and I'm hoping I can figure it all out!

I have a question,



How do you use cloth diapers?
What do I need to start?
How much cheaper is this than disposable diapers?
Does baby grow out of them?
What do I do when baby grows out of them?
How long does a baby wear a cloth diaper?
How do I clean them?



I have so many questions.. I am considering switching but I have no idea how to use them or have no idea about anything about them. Can you explain the whole process, and costs?
