Cloth Diapering Tips


1. Use Cloth diapers only part-time.
– We cloth diaper 80% of the time during the week, and use disposables at night. I’m buying diapers half as much as I did with my first son and still saving a ton of money. My favorite disposable? The Target brand diapers! My baby never wets through them and still nurses 2-3 times a night!
2. Use liners.
– Whether disposable, flushable or fleece, this helps you save time on rinsing poopy cloth diapers out (once their not exclusively breastfed) anymore. My little one is on a pretty google schedule these days so I know to use them at night. We also used the newborn diapers he never was able to fit into, as liners. He was too chunky to fit in them! You can check out these compostable ones on Amazon and they’re available on Prime!

No liner? Use a sprayer
– No Sprayer? Wipe out the poo with a wipe! I find it less gross and quicker, than trying to swish or scrap it out and accidentally flinging it around or at yourself…
4. Sun your diapers outside.
– Don’t waste time trying to bleach and spray your diaper stains away. Put your cloth diapers out in the sun while you go to work, and when you come back! Voila! All clean. Here’s the drying rack we use outside in our backyard -> (Affil Link) AmazonBasics Foldable Drying Rack – White
5. Keep multiple wet bags/pails around the house!
– This one took me a few months to finally think of, common sense right? I keep one in our downstairs bathroom, one in our master bathroom where he’s changed the most, and one in the boys’ bathroom for when my baby gets a bath! It saves me time from running around, up and down the stairs, and when I forget them.. back down and up the stairs again!

  1. These are great and I considered clothe- we use the sun to bleach out all stains though. Didn’t know about it til 6 months ago but it’s the best

  2. I’ve considered cloth diapers with each of my boys, but never did it! After reading this, you’ve definitely persuaded me to doing it with my 4th (that is not yet a thought lol)

  3. Its like you read my mind! You appear to understand so much about this, like you wrote
    the e-book in it or something. I feel that you could do with some p.c.
    to pressure the message house a bit, however instead of that, that is fantastic blog.
    A great read. I’ll certainly be back. http://www.psp17.radom.pl/?q=node/11966

  4. Lol I have totally flung poop my way trying to get it off the diaper! I’ve also had the toilet water splash onto me when dumping the poo. Just so much not-fun.
    I love cloth diapering and I’m always happy to find someone else who does it 🙂 I’ve recently discovered cloth menstrual pads and I’m finding it an even more powerful addiction than diapers! Probably because they’re for me, and not my offspring . . .
