:: The Cloth Diaper Report ::
You may recall that we were contemplating switching to cloth a few months ago. Well, we never officially held our noses and jumped off the diving board. Cost was prohibitive – and timing – and then…there is the fact that the whole thing is overwhelming (so many choices + the need to buy different laundry detergent + the snafu about cleaning #2!).
That said, I am hoping to reduce our use of diapers by pulling out the little potty soon – pretty quickly after my baby takes her first steps…which will be soon (Oh My!). I started my older daughter on the potty in the early walker stage as well – nothing pushy, just positive opportunities. She was pretty much potty trained by age two. We’ll see how it turns out this time. I’ll let her set the pace.
I’m also slowly adding to my cloth diaper collection because, eventually, there will be a baby #3 and – as they say – three’s a charm, right?
Check out these two mom-owned companies that I recently discovered that will likely be of interest to my readers who use cloth diapers –
Planet Wise sells Diaper Pail Liners, Wet Bags, and Wet/Dry Bags in a variety of sizes:
The Diaper Pail Liners are sturdy, leakproof, reusable, and available in an assortment of bright and muted colors to match any room’s decor.
The Wet/Dry Bags are two-compartment bags that allow you to transport your wet clothes/diapers in one pouch and your dry clothes/diapers in the other pouch. Perfect for swimmers, dancers, cloth diaper-ers, and potty training tots!
Softbums is home of the “best-fitting one-size diaper of all time!” I haven’t used enough cloth diapers to substantiate that claim, but I CAN say that these diapers are super soft and stretchy…and they appear to be a cinch to use. I especially appreciated the demonstration video on the website – that dad makes cloth diapering look like a piece of cake!
