Cloth Diapering: The Beginning

Read about how Kansas Dad and I started cloth diapering on the Knickernappies blog today.

If you've clicked over from Knickernappies, welcome! Posts are slow here right now, since I have a newborn in my arms about 23 hours a day. Scroll down and stay awhile, though, if you have some time.

  1. Great post!!! I heart cloth-diapering. Are things going well with second son in cloth?

  2. Monica, it's going great, though while my mom was here he mostly wore disposables since she was changing him most of the time. He's so big he won't be wearing the size 0 Kissaluvs for very much longer. Hopefully the belly button heals soon because none of the bigger diapers fold down!

  3. Do you use any green mountain prefolds? I can't remember. I have really liked those bunches.

  4. Nice post! I always like to tell people that the number one reason I cloth diaper is because they work better. That usually isn't what they expect. Of course, I like all the "usual" reasons too. :-)

  5. Hilary, YES!!! At 6 1/2 months, my Kolbe has had two poop-outs. And one was in a bumGenius in the morning that hadn't been changed yet so it was very wet and over-stuffed with "packing" to begin with, so that one really doesn't count. In my normal, daytime diapering system (green mountain prefolds, snappi with a thirsties cover), it has happened one. time. Love my cloth!!!

  6. Hilary - absolutely! First Son used to have blowouts. All. The. Time. In our NYC apartment cloth diapering wasn't a good option, but now that we have a washer and a dryer I'd never go back to disposables full-time.

    Monica, I have a few Chinese pre-folds from a friend which I haven't used yet with Second Son. Mostly now we're using Kissaluvs with the new Thirsties duo wrap covers, which I'm liking a lot. In fact, almost all of his diapers for the first few months will be fitteds with the Thirsties or Motherease covers. Love the Thirsties!
