Cloth Diapers

When I was pregnant, I decided that I really wanted to use cloth diapers since it is so much more eco friendly, but I had no idea where to start. Chris has always been pretty iffy about cloth diapers, but I finally convinced him when Caden was about 4 months old. I have discovered that the only way to save money with cloth diapers is to have a large stash, but since I’m new to this I have decided to just by a few different brands to see which one I like the best, and we will just wait to see the $$ savings with the next baby. Besides, it is more about the sustainability than the money for me. So far in my ‘stash’ I have: gDiaper ‘hybrids’, Rumparooz cover, Blueberry cover, Shinebaby pocket diaper, and I’m about to order a few from Alva. Be on the look out for posts on my review for each brand!


  1. I inherited mine from a friend...yep used cloth diapers:) The price was right! So obviously I did NO research. Half of mine are "fashion baby" pocket style diapers which are really cute and soft. The other half are "bummis" covers with regular old tri-fold cloth diapers on the inside. And while they are quite plain they work great and are super easy to clean! I use these rubber clips to close the cloth diaper part. Lastly (before I write a novel) I LOVE the over night diapers we have. They are "snug to fit" (I use them inside the bummis cover) and they WORK for 12+ hours with out leaking! Amazing!!!

    1. No shame in that, especially if you know the person your buying from! How do the tri-folds work? I like the plain cloth diapers best- my son has an all white one that I think is super cute for some reason. Thank you for the recommendations, I am going to look into them!!

    2. Because a picture is worth a thousand words I added a picture collage "explaining" how to use the tri-fold diapers on my cloth diapering post. The clip is called "Snappi" and the cover is one of the "Bummis" covers. If you have more questions let me know...
