So when I was pregnant with Silas I decided to try the cloth diapers. I was nurvus because it was different. I remembered how much the disposables are from when i had Lucas so I decided to try.. Best thing i ever did!! they are easy to maintain and my son never had a diaper rash. I do recommend cloth to any one that has a sensitive baby or to anyone trying to save a buck over time.


I cloth diaper. I haven't tried too many brands but I love Kawaii diapers. They are a pocket one size diaper, you can put extra stuffing in them to make them more absorbant and the have the outer shell for waterproofing. These are fairly cheap. I start off with prefolds or flat folds for the newborns with a flip or bububibi water proof cover because the one size fit about 10 pounds and up.


I am going to cloth diaper my new one, I cloth diapered my daughter and loved it. She had less diaper rashes, they cloth diapers are adorable and both Eco friendly & once you build your stash pretty much cost you nothing.


I think they are a little spendy. like 10-15 a piece. But they have buttons so they can wear them from birth till they are out of diapers! Thats my plan!


I've been using cloth for 3 years now! Love it!


I liked cloth diapering because baby could feel the wetness and had to be changed more often, thus made them easier to potty train, in my opinion. It was cheaper because I started with cloth diapers my sister passed on to me. I eventually did have to buy more but it was still cheaper in the long run especially since I used them for multiple children.

I liked not filling landfills with diapers, but that wasn't a motivation. Easier potty training was!

Cons: my husband with our last child was tired of cloth diapers and them sitting and often smelling in the diaper pail (we waited to do them once a day at night time. If the diapers are not changed right away, just like a disposable baby will get a rash. If you use chemical based products to soak or wash the diapers it will cause a rash, if the diapers are not rinsed properly.


I absolutely love cloth diapers!!

Pros: WAY CUTER, We have never had diaper rash since switching, saves a TON of money if you have more than one child and use the same diapers, and of course there are all the environmental benefits too.

Cons: Honestly the only one I can think of is that cloth diapering tends to become an addiction. I have had enough diapers for some time now, and yet I continue to purchase each of the new ones that come out. I love them, they are pretty, and it's almost an obsession to have ALL of them
