Who wants to take a peek inside my cloth diaper stash??
This is my first go round with cloth diapers. I wanted to cloth diaper when I was pregnant with LB, but with daycare being a factor and just my overall fear of being a first time mom – I decided not to. This time around I decided to go for it! I get to be home with this baby due to my coaching biz. Plus I believe in the benefits of cloth diapering. Which include:
- SAVINGS. The average family spends about $2400 on disposable diapers from birth to potty training. I personally have spent less than $100 on my cloth diaper stash (I’m crazy thrifty and have been gifted plenty).
- Theyre ADORABLE. I mean really. Look how cute they are.
- Cloth diapered babies tend to potty train sooner (they are more aware of when they are wet).
- Less chemicals. Disposable diapers even SMELL like chemicals to me. Unless you buy the more expensive organic brands, when brings me back to #1.
Idc that I have to wash poop or even touch it. I’m a mom. It’s gonna happen. So anyways – my stash!
I knew I wanted mostly AIO and pocket diapers. These do cost more but they’re also so cute and easier to put on. I was also told to get a bunch of different brands and see what I like once she’s here – so I did. I also built a newborn cloth diaper stash (mostly gifts). Some moms opt to use flats/prefolds (more old fashion style cloth diapers) or disposables until babies can fit into one sized diapers (typically around 8-9 lbs). Newborn diapers typically fit 5-12 lbs.
Enough blabbing. Here’s the goods!:
