post #41 of 68
How long have you been CDing?
15 or 16 months, can't remember exactly how old dd was when we switched.

How do you like it?
Love it

Why do you cloth diaper?
Cheaper, better for dd's skin

What kind of dipes are in your stash?
2 dozen GMD prefolds
1 dozen Gerber dsq's
1 thirsties fab fitted
1 kissaluvs fitted
3 BG OSs

1 thirsties cover
1 thirsties duo
1 bummies super brite
4 sww's

lots of fleece liners I cut from several remnants I got at the fabric store

What's your favorite diaper/diaper combo?
a gmd pf snappied with either of the thirsties covers

What kind of wipes do you use?
Mostly baby washcloths but a few flannel ones I sewed.

What kind of diaper solution do you use?
Water with a bit of cider vinegar

What is your overnight system?
GMD pf with either a doubler or a gerber pf used as a doubler

Do you/how do you rinse off your CD before pailing them?
if there's poo it's dumped in the toilet but it's usually contained in the fleece liner. Before solids I didn't worry with any rinsing or dumping.

What kind of pail system do you have?
Open plastic pail

What is your wash routine? (how you wash, what detergent/additives, how often, how do you dry?)
cold wash cycle w/ no soap, hot/warm cycle with Charlie's, then dry in the dryer. Occasionally I'll run an extra hot/warm cycle w/ no additional soap after the one with soap.

And what one CD item would you purchase if money were no object?
I'd buy several more Thirsties Duo wraps (4 or 5) and a few other pocket diapers for when other people watch dd.

How long have you been CDing?

About 3 yrs, started when my oldest was 8 months.

How do you like it?

Love it.

Why do you cloth diaper?

Hate the thought of all those disposables going in the landfill. Also sposies smell bad.

What kind of dipes are in your stash?

Goodmamas, Imse Vimse covers, Disana wool covers, some pull-on wool, and Imse Vimse AIOs with snaps.

What's your favorite diaper/diaper combo?

Goodmama with Imse Vimse Soft cover w/snaps.

What kind of wipes do you use?

I have some hyena cart wipes, but mostly just baby washcloths.

What kind of diaper solution do you use?

Just water.

What is your overnight system?

Goodmama goodnight with extra doubler and Disana wool cover. DD2 is a super pee-er.

Do you/how do you rinse off your CD before pailing them?

Dunk and swish. We use fleece liners to make it easier.

What kind of pail system do you have?

Dry.

What is your wash routine? (how you wash, what detergent/additives, how often, how do you dry?)

Every 2-3 days, cold wash with a bit of Oxy, hot wash with Purex free & clear, dryer.

And what one CD item would you purchase if money were no object?

Am pretty much at stash nirvana but I wouldn't mind having some fancy pull-on wool.

How long have you been CDing?
3 months

How do you like it?
love it!

Why do you cloth diaper?
1) soft, cushy pad for LO's little tush instead of crinkly paper underwear
2) environmental reasons
3) cute factor

What kind of dipes are in your stash?
Main daytime dipe: Softbums AI2 (we have 7 covers and 20 inserts)
Main nighttime dipe: Fuzzibunz OS pocket (we have 3)
Random leftovers from experimental stages: 2 gDiapers, a BG OS pocket, a Rocky Mountain OS pocket, and a Kushies AIO (I use these only when late with laundry)

What's your favorite diaper/diaper combo?
Softbums AI2

What kind of wipes do you use?
A mix of flannel, bamboo, and cheapo baby washcloths

What kind of diaper solution do you use?
plain water for most changes, I don't like to leave soap/chemical residues on baby's bum. If she has poo stuck to to her tushy I'll wash her with soap and rinse under the tap.

What is your overnight system?
Fuzzibunz OS pocket with 1 mf insert and a hemp/mf insert doubled at the back

Do you/how do you rinse off your CD before pailing them?
Shake poo into toilet, no rinsing

What kind of pail system do you have?
hanging zippered wetbag used as a dry pail

What is your wash routine? (how you wash, what detergent/additives, how often, how do you dry?)
Inserts get a cold prerinse, hot wash with ECOS free and clear (or any other approved detergent from diaperjungle's detergent chart), extra hot rinse, tumble dry. Covers go in with regular baby laundry, warm wash and tumble dry (we use the same ECOS detergent for all our laundry).


And what one CD item would you purchase if money were no object?
I really want to try the new snap-version of the Softbums but they aren't widely available yet. I might try their organic bamboo inserts too.

How long have you been CDing?
Since day 1. DD currently 17 months.

How do you like it?
Can't imagine doing anything else.

Why do you cloth diaper?
Kinder to the environment, better for baby, faster to potty learn, certainly cheaper.

What kind of dipes are in your stash?
7 dozen Chinese prefolds
6 Imse Vimse newborn size covers
2 Thirsties covers each of various sizes
3 Eca-pants
13 EC pads
1 Daisy Doodle training pant
6 Gerber training pants
1 locally made fitted diaper
2 pairs homemade wool longies
5 homemade wool covers

prefold with homemade wool cover hook and loop closure

What kind of wipes do you use?
Flannel squares I made myself and launder with diapers

What kind of diaper solution do you use?
Very diluted Dr. Bronner's baby soap solution

What is your overnight system?
Same as day. Last few months we fold the prefold differently for more absorbency.

Do you/how do you rinse off your CD before pailing them?
Poo goes in the toilet (and typically peels off easily) then it gets tossed in the pail. DH likes to dry wet dipes before throwing them in the pail.

What kind of pail system do you have?
Hamper with a laundry bag inside, at the messier beginning, we used a plastic pail with a laundry bag.

What is your wash routine? (how you wash, what detergent/additives, how often, how do you dry?)
hot wash extra rinse, Biokleen, now that I have a w/d at home I wash every 4 days, dry in the dryer (too cold here to line dry) Used the laundromat for the first 15 months (hence the 7 doz dipes) While it's easier to launder at home, it was totally doable at the laundromat.

And what one CD item would you purchase if money were no object?
Wool cover

I like cds fine, once dp was "on board" all my worries were put aside.
I cloth diaper for my son's skin health. That is the main reason. They had reactions to sposies.
Dipes in my stash- I really like nanipoo fitteds for newborns.. and fuzzibunz for medium/petite.. but I have quite a few First Class Baby and BizzyBeehive..
For a while we really liked fitteds and wool covers.. and the embroidered ones are gorgeous, but I really don't have time to care for wool much anymore.. so fuzzibunz and inserts for medium/petite and will go with fitteds and covers for the small/newborn stage since I still have quite a few.
Generally dp prefers disposable wipes.
Diaper solution? Huh?
Like fuzzibunz for overnight or Snugwee? but I don't think they are made anymore.
Just dump contents in toilet.. no sprayer thing.
Dry pail
I wash every other day when I have a babe in dipes.. although with only one in dipes, my pail probably won't get as full as fast. I use a dryer.
Not sure what I'd buy.. probably all of one system and not a hodgepodge..

post #55 of 68

Our Cloth diapering experience so far

Ok first of all I want to say that this is our first child and she is only 2 months old, so we don't have a lot of experience in it but wanted to put our input in.

How long have you been CDing?
about 7 Weeks (we used sposies the first 2 weeks, until her cord came off and the BG fit our baby)

How do you like it?
We love it! It's been easy for us and I know the amount of diapers we had to buy in the first 2 weeks was crazy so it really solidfied the cost savings for us and we have educated quite a few families on the "new" cloth diapers (vs what their parents/grandparents used and they have all been presently surprised )

Why do you cloth diaper?
Cost savings and the benefit to the environment for not adding any more disposables than we have too to the landfills and b/c my mom CD me!

What kind of dipes are in your stash?
We exclusively have BumGenius 3.0's but I would like to try their new line and/or the GroBaby line

What's your favorite diaper/diaper combo?
We've only used BumGenius 3.0 so we'd have to say at this point that they are our favorites

What kind of wipes do you use?
cloth at home (cheap baby washcloths that we keep in a warmer in a solution of 1 Tbsp of baby wash, 1 Tbsp of baby oil, 1 cup water) and commercial wipes when out and about

What kind of diaper solution do you use?
Solution? Like in our diaper pail? We just use a dry bag

What is your overnight system?
BumGenius Dipe with a thick insert in it. Works fine so far and she sleeps for 10-11 hrs a night with no night time changes or leaking in the mornings

Do you/how do you rinse off your CD before pailing them?
We don't rinse them off. Our LO is exclusively BF and we do use liners inside the dipes to help remove some of the poo prior to washings. But b/c of being BF poo it comes off cleanly in the wash

What kind of pail system do you have?
We use a diaper champ diaper pail with a wet bag in it

What is your wash routine? (how you wash, what detergent/additives, how often, how do you dry?)
We wash once in Hot with minimal laundry soap (Planet brand) with an extra rinse in cold (but I've read that we're doing that backwards so we're going to start washings cold first then hot!) We wash when the pail gets full, usually after 3 days of diapers and we have a drying rack in the nursery where we hang them to dry after washings. We hope to be able to hang them outside during the summer (but as it's about 15 degrees here, we'd have frozen dipes if we put them out there! )

And what one CD item would you purchase if money were no object? Probably just more dipes and inserts and we'd get enough for our friend who is now considering cloth for her future LO's but is concerned about the initial cost (we bought ours a few at a time throughout my pregnancy and then we got quite a few as shower gifts. She runs a daycare out of her home and has another little girl whose family uses prefolds and she likes the BG better if she can afford them)
post #56 of 68
How long have you been CDing? Since my oldest was 6 months old. She is now 13. Total break between kids has been almost 3 years, so I guess you could say I've cd'd so far for 10 years.

How do you like it? Usually I really enjoy it. There are times when life gets really busy and it feels like a bit of a hassle, but overall, I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Why do you cloth diaper? Save $, environment, cuteness factor. Because I feel like it's just the right thing to do. It's become part of my mothering identity over the years, just like breastfeeding.

What kind of dipes are in your stash? This varies depending on babies needs at the time and what works best for them. For my newborn I'm expecting next month I have a combo of prefolds/fitteds (mostly made from recycled receiving blankets) and wraps (BSWW, BSB, MEAF, thirsties). Then for 10-12lbs up, I will switch to more OS mama made flannel fitteds, MEOS, reg 4x6x4 prefolds/covers. I also have a few pockets and aios for quick changes and outings, but generally prefer the prefolds and fitteds/cover systems more.

What's your favorite diaper/diaper combo? MEOS w/airflow covers. Very good value for your money. Leakproof, last forever, and ME stands behind their products and has very good customer service.

What kind of wipes do you use? Mama made 2 layer printed flannel wipes

What kind of diaper solution do you use? lavender EO/distilled water in a wipes warmer

What is your overnight system? Same

Do you/how do you rinse off your CD before pailing them? while EBF, I don't dunk or rinse. After that I dunk solids, but generally don't rinse out pee diapers unless it's going to be a while before I can get to doing diaper laundry. That way I avoid set in stink issues.

What kind of pail system do you have?
Rubbermaid tall container w/2 large PUL liners. I rarely use a lid as I find that just makes the odors worse. Dry pail.

What is your wash routine? (how you wash, what detergent/additives, how often, how do you dry?) I have a FL HE washer:
cold rinse/spin w/tiny bit of tide HE powder or just vinegar
Long hot wash with 1/3 rec. amount of Tide
Cold rinse/spin w/nothing
2nd rinse/spin
Dry diapers in dryer, usually hang covers

And what one CD item would you purchase if money were no object? Tough question. I've btdt over the years with several different types of diapers/systems. I'd probably buy a new set of MEOS/AF covers.
post #57 of 68
I just want to say that as a mom newly looking at cloth-diapering, I find this thread incredibly helpful.

Please keep this thread going forever or sticky it!

I am looking at this thread as I keep my eye out shopping for my expected little one, and I will definitely be looking here when it comes time to do the washing.
post #58 of 68
How long have you been CDing?
23 months

How do you like it?
We've had some issues with our wash routine (shared washer and soap based detergent build-up/rash issues), but all in all, I love it.

Why do you cloth diaper?
healthier for the kiddos, natural
really cute stuff
saving $$
convenience (no emergency trips to the store for dipes!)

What kind of dipes are in your stash?
The bulk are prefolds. We have a few bumGenius 3.0, 1 bumGenius organic OS (I prefer this to the 3.0's). Crickett's Hemp fitteds, a Swaddlebees OS OV, and a Tiny Tush. We're getting a full stash of prefold-fitteds (from greenmountaindiapers.com), for the new baby.

What's your favorite diaper/diaper combo?
I like prefolds a lot for absorbency, but prefer fitteds for the poo containment.

What kind of wipes do you use?
Older kind of Little-Lions wipes (they don't have them currently)
bumGenius Bamboo-they're good, I just really don't like the poly content.

What kind of diaper solution do you use?
my own-Squirt bottle filled with water, squirt of Dr. Bronner's, few drops TTO.

What is your overnight system?
Prefold, sometimes with an infant pf as a doubler, with a Thirsties cover. (All my wool needs to be washed, but I've been too lazy. I really like our Aristrocrats soaker for overnight.

Do you/how do you rinse off your CD before pailing them?
Wet-just toss it in. Poopy-shake it out, dunk and wring if it's clingy. Wish I had a diaper sprayer, but we can't afford one for a little longer.

What kind of pail system do you have?
Sterlite pop up lid can from Walmart. <$10

What is your wash routine? (how you wash, what detergent/additives, how often, how do you dry?)
Cold rinse, hot wash with Purex F&C, warm rinse w/ vinegar, warm rinse, dry in dryer. I like Charlie's Soap, but we had issues because we have a shared washer, and I can't even afford to order it for us right now, let alone everyone using the washer so there's not a buildup issue.

And what one CD item would you purchase if money were no object?
A Diaper sprayer. If money were truly no object, and I could afford to get them in the first place, and replace them because I have yet to see any diaper besides a prefold last for a few years, let alone multiple children, I'd probably get a stash of Goodmamas, or sustainablebabyish diapers. With all SBish covers.
post #59 of 68
How long have you been CDing? We cd'd 20 mo - from birth until she pl'd.

How do you like it? Loved it. Miss it.

Why do you cloth diaper? For DH, it was mostly environmental reasons. For me it was the health benefits and the cute factor.

What kind of dipes are in your stash?
We used Bum Genius xs for a month or so and then BG pockets for the remainder of the first year. The second year I discovered wool and we switched to fitted diapers.

What's your favorite diaper/diaper combo?
bagshot row bamboo, pinned, and wool.

What kind of wipes do you use?
cloth.

What kind of diaper solution do you use? for washing bums? we just used a washcloth wet with warm tap water.

What is your overnight system? Same as above.

Do you/how do you rinse off your CD before pailing them?
poop into toilet with toilet paper.

What kind of pail system do you have? wetbag in garbage can.

What is your wash routine? (how you wash, what detergent/additives, how often, how do you dry?)
we washed every three days. one cold water with soap, one hot water with soap, one hot wash no soap to rinse. We used Allen's soap.

And what one CD item would you purchase if money were no object?
My stash was perfect.

Oh the joy of cloth diapers... lol

Been cloth diapering about 2 years now.

It's good for the most part. I still have to use regular diapers for nighttime or the babies wake up early in the morning because they're wet.

I cloth diaper mostly because I was given a set of cloth diapers as a gift. I don't know if I would've been proactive enough to have done it myself. I did get the pul wraps myself though

My favorites are the cotton chinese regular diapers as fillers and the pul wraps as covers. My favorite brand of covers is bunnyluv.

I use regular kirkland wipes when I go out. Otherwise, I just use the sink to rinse the baby's bottom.

I tried using the cloth diapers at night, but would end up with a grumpy wet baby in the early morning, so I abandoned that for now. I think I'll be going back to that, though when I'm ready to start training my older daughter to wake up at night to pee in the potty.

Depending on how bad the poo is, I dump into the toilet, rinse in the sink, or just dump it in the pail.

I use a dry pail system.

I just use warm water in the washer, put my natural kind laundry detergent in the washer, then hang dry on the line. They all come out beautiful and white!

I'm pretty happy with what I got, but really wanted to try the bamboo line of cloth diapers. Just couldn't afford it or justify the cost...
