Simon's diapers arrived!

I ordered twelve AIO diapers from toilebudz at etsy.com. And they just came today! So far I am loving them. They fit him real well and I haven't had any leaks. They are so bright and colorful (I got to pick each diaper out) and I am impressed with the quality. It seems a real shame to cover them up under his pants! I paid about 7$ a diaper so I think I got a pretty good deal on them, plus I like the fabrics she has. We are trying to buy homemade things as opposed to things produced by companies etc, so I think buying them from Etsy was a good find for us. Here are pictures!

Mommy's Touch One-Size Diaper covers?

I'm new to this community and to cloth diapering, really. I'm interested in investing in some good diaper covers, but I'm uncertain of where to start!

I liked the looks of the snap Mommy's Touch one-size diaper covers, that you can see here: outside link.

But I'm having a hard time finding reviews. Has anyone had any experience with this product?

Also! I'm curious as to what kind of diaper inserts (prefold? micro inserts?) that I should use with this type of cover.

Thank you so much for your consideration!

First time for cloth diapers

I just ordered my first cloth diapers. I am very excited! I got 12 size large AIOs, I hope that will be enough! I do Simon's laundry almost every other day so I'm hoping that is more than enough diapers for us.

Now that I've purchased the diapers, my question is - what else do I need? I've read that you need a water proof trashcan and 2 meshbags for liners - is this all I will need? Do you fill the trash can...like 1/2 full of water? Soap? I plan on making my own wipes too eventually - one step at a time!. I would love to hear some advice on what else I need to make sure clothdiapering is a successful and positive experience for our family. Any hints or tips would be great! And keep an eye out for pictures of the diapers when they arrive :)

 Just a quick question..  does anyone on here use cloth inserts w/gDiapers?  A friend of mine bought me the gDiapers starter kit and I LOVE the "g pants" but recently I started using cloth inserts in them (my mom bought me about 3 dozen gerber prefolds during my 1st pregnancy so I've been using those).  I was wondering if anyone uses cloth with the gpants only.. I've seen a lot of people use bumgenius, fuzzi bunz, etc. and I am happy with the gpants but I only have 2 prs and feel like I'm going to need AT LEAST a few more.  Are the gpants ok to use with the cloth diapers 24/7?  Should I get another kind?  I haven't had any leaks yet, KNOCK ON WOOD :o), so I was wondering if I should get more gpants or if something out there is better.  Also, I've just been putting them in a basket and throwin them in the wash at night but this is kind of annoying to me that I only wash like 3-4 diapers at a time (we sometimes use the gdiaper flushable inserts when we go somewhere) so I want to just get either a dry pail or wet pail for them so I can wash them every few days all together...  what do you guys prefer??  I've read online that wet pails are sort of "out-dated" and people prefer dry pails now...is this true?  And what do you guys think about wet bags?  Are those just for going out or does anyone use them primarily with their soiled diapers?  Sorry for so many questions!!!!  Thank you!

p.s. I realized I changed the txt size on here but can't change it back...hope that's not a problem...sorry!  If anyone can tell me how to change it I'd love to!  Thanks!

g diapers

Hello there!

I don't know if anyone here has heard of these before, but with both my girls (ages 23months and 4 1/2 months) we use g diapers. They consist of a cloth diaper, a plastic snap-in and a FLUSHABLE insert (we compost the wet ones). I originally set out to use regular cloth diapers with wool covers but it got to be too much for me since at the time we had no washer/dryer and she was a PEE machine. I found these g diapers in whole foods and considered buying them for a long time but knew no one who used them or who had even heard of them! (at that time we were using disposables and I was weary to try cloth again) I finally went for it and have not turned back since! The diapers are not as bulky as I found the cloth/wool cover combo to be, they are VERY easy to change, and FLUSHABLE refills?! I was sold after using the starter kit for a few days and loaded up on little g's for my (then in the womb) second.

The cost is a little less than disposables and with the plastic snap ins washing the actual diaper is not necessary as often, we have never had ANY problems with rashes and rarely get leaks, which I was really impressed with. The good thing is that you can sign up on their website to be a "g-mum" or "g-dad" and they will send you a STACK of coupons for buying the refills or starter kits, which can be ordered online or found at most health food stores.

You should check them out!

Hi all! I am a Mom of a 13 month old. I did not even think of clothing diapering with her, mostly because I did not know much about it. I am doing some research so that I can make a better deicision for baby number 2 (not that we are trying yet). Can you all post how you came about CDing, how you keep up with the laundry (I am a working Mom and that is my biggest fear) and how it works for your family. Thanks for the story.

I've been wanting to get back to cloth diapering. We stopped while Bug was in daycare (okay, I stopped, since my husband didn't dig them). I recently tried to put my on back in cloth, only to find out that his medium Fuzzy Bunz no longer fit.

I was wavering on dishing out the money for the next size up when I remembered Ebay.

Let me just say red, yes. Hot, HELL NO.

The search continues...



This community was created as a result of the long and arduous process of waiting to be approved/rejected by another cloth diapering community. No need to be elitists. No need to have to submit evidence that you know people in the community or elsewhere. No need to have to deal with snarky mods who have control issues. If you want to join a non-judgmental place to discuss cloth diapering, here's the place!

Let's try to keep this community drama-free and be supportive to each other!
