In addition to a stash of roughly 20-24 cloth diapers, you will need reusable wipes (bumGenius Flannel Wipes have held up extremely well for me), a diaper pail or large wet-bag, and diaper-safe detergent. That’s it! That’s all you need for a no-frills, minimalist approach to cloth-diapering. My initial cloth-diaper stash took up just one basket,

Prepping Your New Cloth Diapers

For some people, the upfront cost of cloth diapers can be a deterrent, although there are ways to build your stash without breaking the bank. To cloth diaper your baby full-time and wash every other day, we recommend having at least 24 diapers on hand.  Twenty-four bumGenius Freetime diapers is $399.  A 24-pack of bumGenius 4.0s is $384 while two dozen Elementals are $495.

There are a ton of cloth diaper accessories out there, so how do you decide what you really need?  Each accessory has a very specific purpose. Some may have a very narrow focus while others don’t. However, wet bags are an accessory that falls into that category of “must-haves,” especially if you plan to use cloth diapers on the go.  What’s a wet bag?
