How many cloth diapers do I need?

This is something that you may personally have to decide.  How often do you want to wash diapers?  How old is your child?

We suggest that you purchase between 18-24 diapers initially if you have a newborn.  This amount allows you to wash every second or third day.  Having fewer diapers means more washing, resulting in more wear on your diapers.  The one size diapers will generally last you all the way from birth to potty training unless you have a very small baby and need to purchase a small or newborn size or if you have a large toddler, and may have to purchase a large size or training pant.  An older child may only require 12 diapers.

What about inserts and wipes?

Most of the diapers we carry come with inserts. FuzziBunz one size come with two inserts and so do the Rumparooz. It will state in the description if you have to purchase extra inserts with your diapers. If you have a heavy wetter you may want to double up on inserts and therefore have at least two for every diaper. 
Instead of using disposable wipes, you can purchase soft, washable wipes from us!  Either wet the wipe with warm water or carry around a small container of soap solution to spray on before you clean up.  The wipe can then go into the diaper bag or wet bag with your dirty diaper.

Do I need a special diaper pail or bag for my diapers?

You can use either.  It may be easier to have a diaper bag to contain all of your dirty diapers, as it can be thrown in the washing machine and washed with the diapers thus eliminate you having to throw them all in by hand.  However, diaper pails work and can be lined with something as simple as a garbage bag so that you do not have to wash out the pail.  If you dont have a diaper pail, a simple garbage container with a flip up lid works just fine.

What do I do if I am away from home with my dirty diapers?

Make sure you have a wet bag or two with you.  Wet bags are waterproof and contain the little messes until you can get them home.

My baby isn't a newborn, can I still start cloth diapers on them?

Absolutely!  It's never too late to make the switch.  I had just bought a dozen diapers for our upcoming baby and decided that I couldn't bear to use disposables on my 2 year old daughter during the night.  So, I put her in a Fuzzi Bunz with two inserts.  She actually prefers them and talks about me putting her "soft" diaper on when she goes to bed!  And they haven't leaked yet!

How do I care for cloth diapers?

  • When you receive your diapers, try them on your baby to ensure that they fit.  Prewash diapers in a hot wash/cold rinse cycle with 1/4 of the recommended amount of detergent.  Tumble dry low.
  • After diapers have been soiled, be sure to shake of the waste into the toilet.  If you have a diaper sprayer, clean the waste directly into the toilet. If y ou are breastfeeding, the solids do not need to be sprayed off.
  • Separate your inserts from the diapers and store in your diaper bag or pail until wash day.  Feel free to sprinkle some Rockin' Green pail freshener in case the diapers get a little unbearable.
  • Put all your diapers, inserts, wet bags and diaper pail bags into the wash.  Do a cold rinse and spin cycle or a cold wash cycle with no detergent.
  • Add your detergent (again, 1/4 of the recommended amount) and wash in a hot wash/cold rinse cycle. I also do an extra cold rinse. 
  • Tumble Dry your diapers on low heat.

What else do I need to know?

  • DO NOT use diaper rash creams - if you need to use a cream, be sure to use a liner to prevent contact with the diapers fleecy area.
  • DO NOT use bleach
  • DO NOT use fabric softeners – this creates a waxy build up on the diapers and inserts, which leads to poor diaper performance
  • Be sure to use the proper detergent – no whiteners, brighteners, or enzymes.
