Getting Started with Cloth Diapers

How do I get started with cloth diapers??

Starting with cloth diapers is fun!

Has your baby been born yet? If not, you can choose to use only cloth from the beginning, or you can choose to start out with disposables until you get your feet under you, parenting-wise, and then switch to cloth.

You can use both cloth and disposables for a while, or you can just jump in with both feet.

There’s no wrong way to start using cloth diapers.

I personally recommend starting with a variety of different diapers – try a few fitteds with covers, a few prefolds with covers, some pockets, a few all in ones. Try some one-size diapers, some sized diapers. Try several different brands. I would *not* recommend buying an entire stash of the same diaper.

Different families find that different types of diapers work best for their families, and until you know what you like and what works best for your baby, you’re better off not investing in a large stash of the same diaper!
