Cloth diapers

I keep forgetting to share my excitement about cloth diapering. Eloise hasn't been in a paper diaper in days. Not at night, not when out and about, not at the ER the other night-- it's so exciting!

She seems to keep getting rashes from paper dipes and booty wipes, we actually only use cloth wipes, as well. I originally only used cloth during the day while we were at home, but with the rash I decided to start using cloth more often to see what would happen. Well, so far so good! No leaks, no more rashes, I find them just as easy as paper dipes, now. I use a mix of Fuzzi Bunz and prefolds. I hear many mamas say they prefer the Fuzzi Bunz for night, but I actually like those best for the day and pack on a couple prefolds for the night.

Ironically, her big sister uses paper dipes and booty wipes. I tried cloth for a while but I just never got the hang of it and I hated washing them. I am not sure what is so different this time, but I find it much easier. I think I'm more relaxed about it, as well. Using easy dipes like Fuzzi Bunz during the day helps, too, I think. Plus, they are so cute!


  1. Cool! I never did get into the cloth dipes, because by the time I learned anything about it, my kids were so old that it was like "what's the point?". But I know lots of people who love them.

  2. Hats off to you - I'm not sure I could ever do cloth diapers.

  3. I'm a cloth diaper lover too! I can't imagine using anything else. They're easy, leak way less, and sooooo much better for the environment. We're a prefold family, but I'm itching to get my hands on some Fuzzibunz!

  4. bumGenius! it is all i can say. i heart me some bumGenius! they make the cloth cutiebooty much smaller for pants.

    all your diapers are belong to us.


  5. Washing runny breastmilk pooh out of the car seat was the end of cloth nappies for me! Good on you though!
