Do people really still use cloth diapers?
Yes! As a matter of fact, cloth diapering has become quite the vogue thing to do especially among environmentally conscious parents. All the new choices in cloth diapers have made it as easy to use cloth diapers as it is to use disposable diapers.
How many do I need?
A newborn can easily go through twelve cloth diapers in one day so we recommend purchasing 12-18 cloth diapers in the newborn or small sizes. An older baby doesn't need quite as many diapers, but you should still plan for 8 diaper changes and an overnight solution. Once you've picked out your diapers, don't forget to get cloth baby wipes and, if you have an older baby, a Diaper Sprayer is a must-have.
What does everyone else buy?
Our best selling newborn cloth diaper is the Kissaluvs Size 0 although we're seeing a strong trend towards bumGenius one size diapers. Hemp Babies Bigger Weeds (made from natural hemp and organic cotton) are fantastic for heavy wetters. If you are cloth diapering on a tight budget, consider using prefolds and cloth diaper covers.
