Single mother of 9month old

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi all! I am a single mother of a nine month old baby girl. I found this site in my search for info on cloth diapering. Maybe someone could give me some pointers if where to start! Some good brands? Tips an pointers..
post #2 of 2

Welcome!  I am sure there are many others with good cloth diaper tips.  We bought most of our diapers used on Craigslist (we are really frugal), so we have a big variety.  My favorite diapers are the ones with snaps that can fits for all ages (I hope).  My baby is now 10 months.  The 3 brands I like best in order of favorites are Bum Genius, AlvaBaby and Fuzzibuns.  I really hated G diapers, or really any diaper with Velcro.  Now that my lo is eating solids we use Bummis liners before his BM so that I do not have the spray the diapers.  I wash my diapers with a mixture of Oxiclean, Washing Soda and Borax.  I do a rinse cycle and then throw in other dirty laundry on regular.  If they start to stink I strip them with Blue dawn and 2 hot long wash cycles.  I hang them to dry outside.  

 

If I were starting over with cloth diapers:  

 

I would not buy any with Velcro-it wears out quickly and is harsh on baby skin

 

I would buy more planet wise wet bags for dirty diaper storage

 

I would buy a diaper sprayer for the toilet

 

Buy a variety of diapers to find which one you like best

 

 

If you have any more questions feel free to ask!
