...because home doesn't happen overnight.

*THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.*

Congrats to Charlotte whom advises cloth-diapering parents to buy diapers in gender neutral colors so they can be used on future kids or sold to folks with boys or girls.

A few weeks ago I featured the etsy shop Mod MomME. {Btw, etsy crush posts are not sponsored and I only feature shops I have bought from or would like to buy from.} After the post, I was contacted by Mod MomME’s owner asking if I’d be game for a giveaway. Yes!

We just started researching cloth diapers. Great article to get us started, thank you!

PEEYEW!

Get on a schedule. If you know you have to wash diapers every other day – you won’t run out. Cold rinse, hot wash, cold rinse then dry.

“PEEYEW!” I admit cloth diapering isn’t for everyone, but for anyone considering it, I have to encourage you that it is so much easier than it seems. With our first daughter, I almost chickened out at the last second and I’m so glad I didn’t. We’ve saved so much money, and honestly, it’s nice to just throw a load of wash in, rather than panic about getting out of the house to get more diapers. I also use disposables from time to time, which takes the stress away. It doesn’t have to be all or nothing. I will add though, that we use about 25+ bum genius 4.0 pockets, and it is really nice to have extras and not be in such a hurry to wash. At almost 2 years, they still seem as good as new, and we will be using them for Baby #2 coming this summer.

06.June.2013

PEEYEW!! Try out a few types first to see what you like and what fits your baby well. We use BumGenius Elementals for day and Thirsties DUO AIO with an extra insert at night, no leaks!

PEEYEW! I wish I had a gem of wisdom regarding cloth diapering but I haven’t had to change a diaper in about 9 years. I do wish I would have known more about cloth diapering when my babies were babies, I am thinking of all of the money I could have saved, along with a landfill or two.

I’m pregnant with my first and am due in October. My husband and I have decided that we’re going to use cloth diapers. Your post today was so helpful!

PEEYEW!!! My daughter loves to take her clothes off including her yucky messy diapers.. a mess bag would be perfect!!!! No advice on cloth diapers, but advice on night time clothes removal by a 2 year old.. zipper pjs with the feet cut off -put on backwards.. :) Works like a charm..

reply )

06.June.2013

PEEYEW! I have a black wet bag that was gifted to me and OH SO BORING. I would love a cute colorful one instead!

I use the disposable liners for #2 and that has made all the difference in ease of use. I also use disposables at night to avoid leaks. Hey, I do what I can when I can…

PEEYEW!

It’s been a year since we’ve used cloth and are now gearing up for number 2 this fall. I need to pull out our diapers and research how to wash/strip/care for them again!

reply )

06.June.2013

PEEYEW!
We went all in and use flats with covers and we make our own detergent. It’s much easier than I thought it would be. Snappie fasteners are great. Just make sure your rash cream is safe for cloth diapers or it will build up on the diapers and they won’t be as absorbent.

reply )

06.June.2013

PEEYEW!
Not a cloth diaper user, but I am mom to a heavy-duty spitter, so we’re always having to go through clothing / bib changes.. a wet bag would be great!

06.June.2013

PEEYEW!

My best advice for CDing is to give yourself the freedom to be flexible. Like your choice to wait until 3 months, I didn’t use CDs until my daughter was 6 weeks. With baby #2 (due in September!), if eel comfortable starting with cloth right away. But I’m glad I let myself ease into it (and to se disposables whenever/whyever after that)at first. No reason to put more pressure on ourselves!

reply )

PEEYEW! Would love one of these for my 3 month old!!!

Peeyew! I am dying to cloth diaper my second (currently expected) kiddo. I would have with my first, if only we didn’t rely on a public laundry room at the time.

reply )

06.June.2013

PEEYEW! My advice is to be flexible – life is so much easier when you can toss a disposable every once in awhile – or let extended family use disposables when they are on babysitting duty!

I got nuthin’–I’d be using this for swim suits :-)

06.June.2013

PEEYEW! similar cloth experience here. we use disposables for trips and overnight. i used charlie’s soap when i first started, but then started making my own which also works great. i prefer to use prefolds and covers instead of all-in-ones, but they are definitely convenient. I’ve used many brands and like bumgenius, fuzzibunz, and thirsties best. having used some of my diapers on 3 children i will say that the velcro closures don’t hold up as well as all snap diapers. cloth can be scary at first and you might cringe every time you dunk (or spray) the poo, but it really is worth it! thanks for the giveaway!

PEEYEW! Love cloth diapering, I’ve never regretted it. I highly recommend buying used diapers for even more cost savings, as well as a way to try different styles. It was a great way for me to experiment and find our perfect nighttime diapering system–fitted diaper with wool cover.

I am currently cloth diapering my second baby who is 7 months old! This has been fantastic because it has been free- she uses all of big brother’s diapers that were still in excellent (like new!) condition! Our current favorite is the Bum Genius 4.0 – and we could always use a new wet bag!! <3

reply )

06.June.2013

PEEYEW!

I just had my third baby, but this is my first experience with cloth diapering. I’ve been trying several different brands and have finally committed to FuzziBunz, but I still have so much to learn, so I’m looking forward to reading through the comments!

06.June.2013

PEEYEW!

My little lady (and first born) is 7 months, and we started cloth diapering when she was about 4 months. We’re only a few months in, but we love cloth! My tip would be to not over-think the washing routine. A rinse, a wash, and then another rinse works really well for us. Also, don’t let poo diapers turn you off! Whether you’re cloth diapering or not you’re bound to get poop on you.

reply )

06.June.2013

PEEYEW! We’re Bum Genius users too and I love them! These wetbags are adorable and would be perfect for out and about. At home we use a 5 gallon bucket from Lowes that I put a gamma lid on- works great (don’t have to worry about leaks, contains stink, and the lid screws easily on and off).

reply )

06.June.2013

PEEYEW!
I don’t have any kiddos or cloth diapering advice (yet), but I have some friends who talked about joining funds to buy newborn-size cloth diapers to share, since you go through so many at first but the babies don’t stay that size for long.

PEEYEW!

We love our PlanetWise wet bags and pail liners. Try a variety of diapers. Turns out my daughter is sensitive to microfiber so I had to switch to natural fibers. My favorite are the swaddlebees/blueberry simplex OS AIO; but since they are pricey we have a lot of the Grovia AIO. Also, for those that are poop adverse, we got a Potty Pail (http://www.pottypail.com/), which helps. It could be DIY for much cheaper. I also second that 24 diapers is a good number. I got a bunch of our diapers second hand or from seconds and clearance sales to help with cost.

reply )

06.June.2013

PEEYEW!!! First time expectant mom here! Our plan is very similar to yours, cloth diaper when we can and just not feel bad when we can’t.

PEEYEW! No babies, but a wet bag would be nice for the beach.

06.June.2013

PEEYEW! I know a lot of people who cloth diaper, my sister included, and really they say it’s a pain in the butt. My mom always rolls her eyes at my sister and anyone who says they want to cloth diaper, which I want to do for finanical and environmental reasons. So when she rolls her eyes at me I’ll show her this post, because my sister didn’t use the same brand so perhaps this is easier, hence the upfront cost. If this was any other blogger I would say they’re making it up how fantastically easy it is, but I trust you’re opinion, so you’ve gone and convinced me. Thanks for the honesty, and the sprayer sounds genious.

reply )

06.June.2013

Peeyew!!! I cloth diaper at home only about 75% of the time but we still love it.

reply )

06.June.2013

PEEYEW another great thing when spraying diapers is a SprayPal… similar to the bucket idea but better (in my opion) because it can be used to squeeze the excees water out without touching the soiled diaper and the sparypal folds up really small and you don’t have to hold the diaper so low into the toilet. Bonus it was invented by a husband and wife who are selling it themseleves. http://www.spray-pal.com/ I don’t work for them but I think it’s a neat product.

PEEYEW!

I’m cd’ing my second (3 months) full time while working outside the home! I love it. They’re adorable and save me a ton of money. Buying used is a great way to go, too!

reply )

06.June.2013

PEEYEW…
I love BumGenius. I bought the sized ones with my first (don’t think they offer them anymore) and now my second is in them. Love that I am essentially diapering for free now.
My best advice is to not be crazy about the cloth diapers. I use a combo of cloth and disposables… I don’t make anyone else cloth diaper- babysitters, nursery workers, etc. If we are traveling, I use disposables because I don’t want to have to worry about transporting all the dirty diapers or using someone else’s washing machine.
Also, get in a routine for when to wash them. I usually wash at night after the kids are in bed since it takes a couple of cycles. Then I throw them in the dryer before I go to bed.

reply )

06.June.2013

PEEYEW!

Yes, please. I drag my gym clothes to (dry) and from (wet) work each day. This would be a fantastic addition to my current method – ahem, ball everything up and wrap it in a towel. Not cool. :(

reply )

06.June.2013

PEEYEW! We love the Bumgenius 4.0. I would recommend multiple wet bags – one for diaper bag, nursery and main floor (if you have two story home).

06.June.2013

PEEYEW! I have never cloth diapered so I have no advice to give, though I’m hoping to when we eventually have baby #3 (not even trying, that’s just in the future plans eventually), but could definitely use this for my girls swim lessons until then!

reply )

06.June.2013

PEEYEW! I’m pregnant with my first, and very excited to use cloth! I love the idea of saving so much money (and accidentally saving the planet at the same time is a plus!), and they’re so darn cute!

reply )

06.June.2013

PEEYEW!

My cloth diaper advice is to try it if you are interested. It doesn’t matter how old your baby is when you start. My third child was 18 months when I started, and he potty-trained at 24 months. I only spent the equivalent of 2 months’ of disposables when I bought a diaper stash for him, so it was still cost effective.
I was hooked, and used cloth for #4 all the way through. Still using cloth for nights for him!

reply )

06.June.2013

PEEYEW! We’ve been using cloth diapers for about 18 months now and we love them (we use Bumgenius Freetime). I’ve just been using large ziplocs for wetbags on the go, but this would be much cuter!

reply )

06.June.2013

PEEYEW!!!

No tips, as we’re currently using disposables, but if I were at home most days instead of my husband, I’d definitely be cloth diapering! (The husband HATES the idea.) But maybe for our next babies!!!

We used cloth diapers for both kids – our 2nd is still using them and we plan on doing so until she’s potty trained. Like you, we HATE carrying around a dirty diaper so we generally use them at home and use disposables when we’re out. We did cloth for economical reasons as well. We pay for trash in our town so it helps us save money , but limiting the amount of money we spent on trash bags. YAY cloth diapers. PS – We LOVE LOVE LOVE bum genius.

We LOVE our Bum Genius. They are so cute and work so well, not to mention money saver! We’re waiting for an adoption match so we can use them again. I could not stand a stinky diaper pail so I’d clean it out with every diaper wash [wipe it with a bleach wipe]. And striping [diapers] often is a MUST. I’d love to have a beautiful new wet bag! Thank you for the opportunity!

Try Planet Wise Pail liners. Been using them for years and never had a leak. Just don’t put them in the drier as the high eat isn’t good for the PUL.

reply )

06.June.2013

PEEYEW!

I left some thoughts on your last post, but one piece of advice I would give is to not be discouraged off of cloth if the first diaper you try doesn’t work for you. There are SO many out there and because they hold their value, it is worthwhile to try different ones til one clicks. Then sell the rest! :)

reply )

06.June.2013

PEEYEW!! We use GoGreen diapers most of the time. I like them because I can add a doubler at night to prevent leaks. During the day when we can change every 2 hours or so we just use one microfiber insert and at night we use a bamboo and a microfiber and most of the time no leaks! I have to teach my husband how to wash them or rewash after he does.

06.June.2013

PEWYEW! On baby two with the same 14 bumgenius. We also added a few gro vias in. We use disposables when traveling and at night when our first was older :-)

I would love to have another wet bag-they are very handy!

Thanks for your post on your coth diaper routine, I found it helpful as I am new to the whole adventure:)

PEEYEW!!!!

We cloth diapered until toilet training with our son and have no complaints. It’s a good idea before you have your child and/or buy the diapers to speak with any daycare provider you will be using about their policy. I know a lot of day care centers don’t allow it but we send our son to an in home provider and she was more than willing to use the cloth diapers.

reply )

06.June.2013

PEEYEW!
For my son, liked bumgenius elementals during the day and sbish with a wool cover at night, rarely leaked and wool is low maintenance. The bumgenius got too many holes for us to be able to save. Maybe has to do with our washing process. Still saved money though. Not sure what we will do for my 6 wk old daughter. She’s in disposables now, I’m waiting until she gets bigger just like you did. A sprayer is a must when they start eating solids.

No tips since we’re about to start cloth diapering for the first time. But I will say, this bag would be awesome since the wet bag I ended up buying turns out is way too small.

PEEYEW!

We cloth diapered both of ours, but are now over on disposables for the last few months before the youngest is hopefully potty trained. Hubby said he’d do that than buy new cloth diapers. So, win-win for me ;)

I’d say my biggest advice is to buy neutral coloured diapers if you plan on having more kids and reusing the diapers. And of course, if having a boy in “girl” colours bothers you. Our daughter wore “boy” coloured diapers, as I did not want to buy new diapers because they were the “wrong” colour.

reply )

07.June.2013

PEEYEW!

My advice would be not to be afraid of them and that yes, it can be gross and germy, but un-cooked Chicken is just as germy and gross, so all in perspective!

I loved that I was able to re-sell my diapers after #2 was potty trained. Another plus: no up-the-back blowouts with cloth diapers (thanks to the elastic!)

I disposable diapered my first (we lived in an apt without w/d). I bumgenius-ed my 2nd (with disposable on occasion). If there is a 3rd, it will be bumgenius-ed too. I love LOVE cloth diapers.

PEEYEW! With my first two daughters I used disposables – cloth had only just begun to become “popular” and easier to use and with my daughters going to daycare it was just easier to not mess with it. I have since started staying at home full time and my third daughter is 9 months old and we just found out we are expecting our 4th baby (SURPRISE…not a bad one, but a surprise none the less.) I am considering switching to cloth as my diapering days are further from over than I had anticipated =). Thanks for your post – got the ball rolling for me!

We used cloth for our first two and will again for our nice little surprise third. I had the organic AIO from bum genius with the snaps and unfortunately, they had a two-child limit. I’ll be doing more refolds with this little one.
Also – we had issues with our sprayer. Just make sure that it doesn’t leak. It ended up costing a pretty penny to our insurance company. when ours leaked because it wasn’t shut off and turned our laminate outside the bathroom into a roller coaster ride. Next time around, I’ll have to convince my husband to even use one and we’ll need the best one we can afford.

I’m pregnant with our first, due September, and plan to cloth diaper. Everyone keeps telling me I’m crazy. It’s so nice to hear from so many people who say it’s not much harder than disposables. I was pretty convinced I wanted to use Fuzzi Bunz, but perhaps I’ll try half BG for comparison.

Thanks!

I have no advice – I didn’t use the cloth diapers. Today, if I had a baby I would try them.

But thank you for the reminder…I no longer have to buy diapers!!! Reason for cake!!!:)

reply )

07.June.2013

PEEYEW! I cloth diaper in a fashion remarkably similar to you…same diapers, also use disposables at night and (sometimes) when out and about. The two tips I have are as follows: I cut up old tee-shirts and use them as diaper liners. If they just get wet they get washed and reused. If they get soiled and are easy to clean off with the diaper sprayer, they also get reused. If they are awful, I bag them and toss them and thank goodness that I don’t have to clean the mess out of the actual diaper. The second tip is to forgo the diaper pail and just use wet bags. We have 4 and use them in rotation. Our little one goes to daycare (and they were willing to use cloth as well) so we send a bag with her each day and have one going at home. So much easier and less smelly than a pail.

Great post – I’ve been thinking a lot about cloth as well, and after reading you and YHL posts on cloth diapers, as well as one of my friends (who’s doctor recommended she switch to cloth after her daughter was getting serious diaper rashes – you’re not alone!), that’s definitely the way DH and I are going!

This helps keep the diapers absorbent.

I really need to get in the rhythm of using the diapers. I have 5 cloth diapers and will be getting more. I feel guilty running a load of laundry with just 5 diapers. Working 3 days a week makes scheduling when to wash them a little difficult.

A lot of my friends in bigger areas have diaper services, lucky duckys! I did not do cloth diapers this time, but I think I might with the next. Is it frustrating carrying stinky diapers around or are the wet bags good at bidding odor?

reply )

07.June.2013

PEEYEW!

Don’t forget to strip (deep clean) your diapers about every 6 months. My oldest one didn’t have a problem if we forgot, but my youngest one gets very sensitive to the ammonia build-up in the fibers that don’t come out with normal washings. You have to wash them with Dawn dishwashing soap and then rinse ad nauseum until the suds are all gone. But it helps his little bum and wee-wee stay happy!

reply )

07.June.2013

PEEYEW!

Never did cloth diapering because I thought, as a working mom with the kids in daycare, that it wouldn’t be doable. I didn’t want to get home from a long day and be washing soiled diapers all night.

But then I met a coworker who DID do cloth diapers. She sent them to a cleaning service that specialized in them! Pick up and delivery too! And it still came out cheaper than disposables!

Now I wish I had gone for it.

PEEYEW!
I love cloth diapering! I was a little hestitant at first because both my husband and I work full time, and I just didn’t want to add “one more thing” to the stresses of working and caring for my daughter. My husband really wanted to, so I want with it….. I have to say that it has been wonderful! It’s a little work in the beginning because you’re not used to it and the baby goes to the bathroom so often, but now that our daughter is 1yr, it is the easiest thing ever! I don’t have much to compare though since this is our first child and we never went the disposable route. I just love not spending my hard earned money on plastic diapers that will end up in landfills…. not to mention having to buy them ALL THE TIME.
I agree that its not for everyone, and I am all for doing what works best for you! We started using disposables for nightime around 6 months because she was such a heavy wetter.
I agree that 24 is a perfect number. We started with 12, went to 18, and then up to 24. We use BumGenis Organic all in ones, and the Rump-a-rooz G2 with inserts. Both have snaps, no velcro. I love the BG, but also like the inserts so I have the option of adding inserts for overnight (which worked until about 6 months and then we strated using disposible as mentioned above).
All-in-all….. Best decision ever! AND money well spent!

We too love the Bum Genius Elemental diapers. Our daughter is 18 months and we have had her in them since 6 weeks. We too use disposables for overnight trips. We have the sprayer on the toilet and find them easy to use. Washing them about every 2-3 days has just become a part of our routine, So much easier than expected and I am loving all the money we are saving. We put the word out and got most of our diapers as shower gifts – even more cost effective ;)

Seems counterintuitive, I know, but I find that a wide open pail with a pail liner but no lid works better than the plastic baggie system you described in your prior post. If I need to transport from toilet (after spraying off poop) to pail, we keep a tiny trash can next to the toilet for that purpose. I just rinse it out every once in a while. Works great. I’d ditch the baggies, but maybe I just misunderstood how you’re using them. Great posts- spread the cloth love!

Peeyew!! My daughter is ornery and I always bring a change of clothes – thus the need for the bag to carry the messy ones in!

PEEYEW! I’ve cloth diapered 2 little ones and have been so happy with it! I love cute wet bags and think it’s important to always have some on hand. I’m sure to “strip” my diapers about once a month by soaking in very hot water and vinegar overnight to get out any soap residue. Thanks for having this giveaway!

PEEYEW! We love cloth diapering! My husband loves the Bum Genius pockets and I’ve grown to love the Gro-Via all-in-ones. Our little one is quite petite so these seem to be more proportional to her tiny frame. We try to dry our diapers outdoors when it’s sunny and warm, but my husband also found a drying rack at Ikea that could be mounted in our laundry room so we can hang dry (or at least partially hang dry and then throw in the dryer) our diapers. It definitely helps save on energy bills!

PEEYEW!
We used a few fuzzybunz and a dozen cloth diaper wholesale diapers. I liked the versitility of pocket diapers – definitely add more absorbant fillers when they get bigger because their bladders grow like the rest of them!

PEEYEW!

We’re also dilettante cloth diaperers. I used them for the most part for my first DD starting from 9 months (but quitting during pregnancy because I just couldn’t deal) and now again with my second DD from birth through now at 21 months. We use disposables at night and sometimes while out, but I love that my diapering expenses run less than $10/month. My biggest advice? Check Craigslist or other resale venues, as diapers may easily be bought for less than $10 or even $5 each.
