Cloth Diaper Obsession ~ Part 2

I only had time to cover a few different types of cloth diapers in the last CD post. I didn't even scratch the surface. There are so many options out there. If one doesn't work for you, there are thousands more to choose from. You can get most cloth diapers with either snap or velcro closures. I prefer snaps because the velcro tends to come undone too easily.

Pocket diapers are waterproof on the outside, so there's no need for a cover. They are the best for going out and about because they're good and trim, so they fit under most baby clothes. There is a "pocket" inside of the diaper itself for absorbent  inserts. The most common inserts are made of microfiber or hemp.

Diaper Change (fabulous prints)

AIOs (all in ones)
AIOs are just that. There is no need for stuffing inserts or adding covers. I haven't had great luck with them myself, but I know a lot of mamas who love them. There are a lot of different kinds, but here's one example~
Bum Genius

These come in regular, organic, or even pockets.

Storing until laundry day~
There aren't alot of stink issues with cloth diapering. I personally think sposies (disposable diapers) smell much worse. You can use any trash can or hamper with a lid. There are also waterproof pail liners and wetbags for keeping in the stink.

Waterproof bags for keeping the dirties in. There are a plethora of prints, from plain to posh.


Cleaning cloth diapers is no big deal either. That's the part that scares most away from trying cds. You just plop the solids into the toilet and toss the diaper into the wash.
