Thursday Giveaway: Cloth Beginnings
April 23, 2014 8:11 pm | by
BLOG_giveaways

Screen Shot 2014-04-23 at 7.51.42 PMBy now, you probably already know it's Real Diaper Week and that we've been advocating and educating families about the benefits of cloth diapers.

We want to encourage more people to use or try real diapers, and we think it would be easier if families starting out with cloth during their baby's first few days of life.

For this week's giveaway, two people will win a bumGenius Newborn Cloth Diaper or an Econobum Newborn Cloth Diaper. Whether you're planning for a baby, expecting, or need the perfect shower gift, bumGenius and Econobum Newborn Cloth Diapers are a helpful way to get anyone started with cloth.

The Econobum Newborn Cloth Diaper is designed for families who want to want to cloth diaper on a budget right off the bat. It fits most babiesΒ from 6-12 pounds and is designed to fit low, below the navel, to keep the umbilical area dry. This diaper is ideal for that itty-bitty newborn stage.

To enter this week's giveaway, tell us when you started using cloth diapers on your baby.

    With my daughter I started with our one size diapers around 3 months because I didn’t know about special newborn sized diapers. Later this year baby #2 will be 100% cloth from the day he or she is born.

    I haven’t started using cloth diapers, but I have a small stash for my daughter who will be here next month. I wish I would have tried them on my son when he was in diapers.

    we started using cloth on our LO when she was 3 mo old. i didn’t know anything about “new” cloth, i thought it was old school of pins and plastic pants and i wasn’t going to do that! but i wish i would have known and started earlier. now we are trying for #2 and will be doing cloth right from the beginning.

    We were planning on starting with our first child but unfortunately I never got around to using them with her. After I saw how simple it looked from some friends who used them I decided to start from the beginning with the next baby. Due in Sept.!

    I started using cloth when my second child was almost a year old. He developed a horrible reaction to disposables and it opened my eyes to the benefits of cloth. I’m excited to start from day 1 with my third baby, due in September. This would be a great addition to our stash!

    We started cloth diapering our little one in the first few days after birth. As soon as meconium stopped she was in cloth. She is three weeks old, still in cloth and she will be until she’s potty trained. We love cloth despite the naysayers!

  • Sara said...

    We started when our daughter was released from the NICU at three weeks old, but we bought diapers and covers for her when I was twelve weeks pregnant!

  • Michelle H said...
    April 25, 2014 at 10:54 am

    We started when our first was 1 yr old, almost 10 years ago. Our next 3 kids went back and forth between disposables and cloth in the newborn stage, and then full cloth. We plan on having #5 full time in cloth as soon as he is born, and didn’t even buy any disposables, so we won’t be tempted.

    TTC but want to cloth diaper from the start! πŸ˜‰

  • Meghan Durand said...
    April 25, 2014 at 10:13 am

    I started when my now 7 month old was about 10 pounds. She was 6 pounds at birth so it took us awhile to get there. I probably used her weight as an excuse not to get going with cloth diapering because I was so scared to start! I thought I’d ruin the diapers with improper washing. We have hard water and I needed to find a solution to that issue before I was comfortable beginning our cloth diaper journey. Many thanks to the various cloth diaper support FB pages out there! I now feel like I am a pro and LOVE our BunGenius, Flips, Hemp Babies and prefolds!! I will definitely start to cloth diaper much earlier with newborn sizes for our next baby!

    Jan 2007 – the day my first child was born. We were 100% cloth from the beginning – unassisted home birth, so no hospital sposies, and we certainly couldn’t afford to buy any.

    We started using cloth when I was out of work for a few months because I had developed life threatening blood clots and had to had two surgeries to remove them. Because I had just started a new job I had no paid time to use. My husband had suggested cloth before so we have it a shot. We are now 3 yrs and one more little later and still using cloth. So glad we made the switch.

    April 24, 2014 at 9:56 pm

    My daughter was born premature, so we started using our cloth diapers as soon as she fit into the OS pockets I had…. I think she was about 1 month old.

  • Oana said...
    April 24, 2014 at 8:50 pm

    Today was my son’s first day in cloth diapers. Both him (21 months old) and my daugther (who just turned 4 and is potty trained) were in disposables until today. I still wonder why it took me so long… I wish I would have seen someone use cloth to understand how it works.

  • Marie said...
    April 24, 2014 at 8:49 pm

    We started cloth diapering because of two little words: diaper rash. Now we wouldn’t go back to disposables for all the butt paste in the world.

  • Jessie said...
    April 24, 2014 at 8:25 pm

    I used disposables with my first 2. They smelled and we’re ridiculously expensive. I plan on starting cloth with baby #3 due in November as soon as we get home from the hospital.

    April 24, 2014 at 5:04 pm

    April 24, 2014 at 5:02 pm

    We actually able to start cloth diapering from birth! We had planned on waiting at least until we got home, but our hospital in Seattle gave us the option. They had tiny prefolds and used tape for the sides haha! It wasn’t a good option for long term, but the first day our little guy didn’t really pee or poo much so it was fine πŸ™‚

    I started using cloth diapers on my son when he was 2 months old. My mom and friends had bought me some disposable diapers, and I used those up. I had had a difficult delivery with him, so we bought 1 pack of disposables with our own money… WOW! Those things are expensive. Thank goodness we already had a cloth diaper stash(I made the choice to cloth diaper him before he was born). Never again!

    April 24, 2014 at 12:30 pm

    We knew we wanted to cloth diaper full time since before our first baby was born, but we got TONS of disposables at our baby showers and used those until our son was about 2-3 months old. Then we started cloth full-time! Next baby will be in cloth from the beginning (after we get home from the hospital!)… especially with these new NB Econobum covers! <3

  • Amber Downs said...
    April 24, 2014 at 11:30 am

    We started about 2 months after we brought him home from the NICU for about a month and a half and loved it . Then we had to stop for 2 months because his therapist said they were bad for his hips. I got so sick of disposable diapers and started to using cloth diapers again. He seems to be able to move his hips just fine in cloth diapers. I learned that sometimes you just have to step up and know that you are mom and you know your child best. The therapist only sees him for a small amount of time compared to me.

  • Maki R. said...
    April 24, 2014 at 11:11 am

    Started with our first right away! We decided to cloth diaper when I was about 6 months pregnant and built up our stash before baby came. My husband and I figured that if we never used a disposable, we’d never know what we were missing, and we’re more than thrilled with our choice!

    I didn’t start cloth diapering my first son until he was about 18 months old. And even then I started out really slow with a tiny stash and just using them part time. By the time I had my second I had a much larger stash. I used only a few newborn diapers here and there, and started more consistently around 5 weeks old.

  • Jeanne said...

  • Katrina said...

    I started using cloth diapers on both my kids around 3-4 weeks. We didn’t have access to any newborn cloth diapers so we waited until they were large enough to fit in the all-in-ones we had. After that we never looked back. :o)

  • Meredith F said...
    April 24, 2014 at 9:56 am

    We started around 2 months. Had done A TON of research and then bought mostly all used to try it out. We quickly realized after using disposables for the first 2 months how MUCH money we save using cloth! We have another little one come in Aug, so a newborn diaper would be perfect for us!

    I have been using cloth for 7 months. We actually started on my son’s first birthday. It’s been fantastic I wish we would have started sooner

    When he was one month old. Would love some newborn diapers so that we can start sooner when baby #2 arrives in December!

    I started using cloth on my LO as soon as the cord fell off. There were just too many horror stories online about cloth diapers pulling the cord out….

    PS. It’s a bit silly to ask us when we started using cloth at a giveaway for newborn diapers πŸ˜› You already know our babies would be out of newborn sizes! I guess it’d be great to gift a pregnant friend…. I know just the person!

    I have s six week old and plan to start once she fits into the OS diapers I bought. I had no idea there were econobum newborns! Good to know!

    I started cloth diapering my now 5 year old when he was about 6 weeks old. We love our cloth!

    When she was about 3 months old. She was too small for the ones we had bought prior to her birth, so she had to use disposables for awhile until she got up to weight.
    Now, she’s 16 months and about to size out of one type of cloth that we have!

    We started using cloth when they fit, around 2.5-3 month. My mom and grandma bought me a pack of one size free times, and they were huge! We brought my daughter home weighing about 4 lbs 11 oz, so we just did disposables until then. Would love to start my newborn stash for baby umber two!

    My firstborn daughter was the experiment. We started with ‘sposies & didn’t move to cloth with her until she was about 15 months old. My son, however, was in cloth after about a week πŸ™‚

    We started at 3 months but would give anything to go back in time and start sooner! We love our real diapers!

  • Jessica Hughes said...

    We wanted to start from day 1, but all of our diapers were too big for our little miss – even the newborn ones! We started around 3 weeks.

  • Bethany said...

    We started at about 2.5 weeks. As new parents, we were overwhelmed with our laundry, let alone diapers. I started trying 2 or 3 a day… Almost gave up because the dipes I was using smelled horrible with a small amount of wetness and gave baby rash. I had done econobum prefolds and figured I’d give them a try before giving up. Thank goodness I bought a variety on eBay! Totally saved my budget!

  • Ashley said...

    I started cloth with my first at 4 months & my second (still in newborns!) at 4 days.

  • Stef said...

    I started using cloth diapers on my now 2 year old son at 1 month. I plan to start earlier with my baby boy due this summer!

    I started using cloth diapers with my 4.5 month old just a couple weeks ago. I am loving them so far and can not wait to try them all! I would love to win the newborn diaper to gift it to my friend who is expecting so she can see just how easy it is to cloth diaper.

    We started using cloth with our first child 5 years ago. We are currently cloth diapering our third child. We chose cloth because it was financially affordable, it was the only way that I could afford to stay home. Today, we could afford to buy disposables, but we have fallen in love with cloth!!

    Full time at 1 week when the stump fell off. We tried a couple before then but we had only bumgenius newborn and they don”t fold down very well. They were rubbing.

  • Megan Litchke said...

    I haven’t started using cloth yet, as my baby isn’t due until September, but I’m super excited about it.

    We unfortunately didn’t start cloth until my son was 15 months old. I started researching when he was 14 months. My husband and I are so happy we made the switch and will be cding our newborn in August!

  • Amanda said...
    April 24, 2014 at 7:37 am

    We started using cloth on our first at about 6 months with or second right away and when our third gets here we will use cloth all the way through.

    April 24, 2014 at 7:35 am

    I started when my daughter was 3 weeks old!! She will be two in July and we still love them!! We are expecting our second in August and I’d love to try one of the newborn cloth diapers for her!!

    from the moment he was born! it was actually very special . . . we were planning on a natural childbirth and he was an emergency c-section and needed to spend some time with the pediatrician on-call. when the doc handed him back to me, he was wearing a tiny washcloth secured with medical tape. the ped said “I know that cloth was important to you — I wanted at least part of your birth to go the way you hoped!” my guy is now 16 months old and has been in cloth ever since.

  • Nikki Howell said...

    The first time I used cloth was with my second. He was 3 months old. Started with cloth on my 3rd at about 1 month. Due with #4 this summer and plan to do cloth from day one this time.

    We started at 6 months with our son. (Just in time to start solids) We are expecting our second child and have started a newborn stash so we can start as soon as possible. We love cloth diapering!

  • Kat Graham said...
    April 24, 2014 at 7:18 am

    We began cloth diapering at 3-4 weeks old. I agree, having an affordable SIMPLE newborn option would have made it easy to start cloth diapering earlier!

  • Candice Dix said...

    We started using cloth on our twins at 3 months(after all the free diapers everyone gave us ran out). I originally thought it would be too hard to do with twins, but I couldn’t imagine the expense of disposables. We love our cloth!

  • Kimberly Wallach said...

    We started with cloth at about three months and we gradually went to full time.

    I bought my first flip diapers when I was pregnant with my first child four years ago. I’ve added some to my stash since I had two in cloth for about three months but I love that they’ve been a part of my life for so long.
