These are the cadillac of prefold diapers, made from 100% cotton twill. Although I always thought we’d move to BumGenius or another one size pocket option as A got older, we are so happy with prefolds, that we just ordered a bale of medium for the next several months of diapering.
These are similar to the prefolds, above, but instead of folding them, you just fasten them around baby and secure with a snappi (they are fitted and you order them by size). They are our go-to diaper for car rides, naps, and bedtime because they do such a good job of containing moisture and keeping it further away from our precious girl. We also ordered eight more of these for the next few months.
I got this idea from another cloth diapering mom. We really didn’t want to use chemical-laden wipes on A, particularly given their propensity for containing aloe (which I’m allergic to). Instead, we fill a peri bottle up with water and use it to wet the homemade cotton flannel wipes that I made myself. So far this system has worked great! And the bottle makes bringing water with us on the go even easier!
We ordered a few different kinds of wet bags, but by far, this type is our favorite. They are small enough for her daycare bag, but large enough to contain a day’s worth of diapers. We usually air dry them, but they can also go in our dryer on low heat if we’re running late and need one (they dry in about ten minutes). Hands down, this is our favorite wet bag!
I received this gem for Christmas from Jason’s cousin, and it has been a great daycare cloth diapering bag. Every morning, I am able to stack eight lined prefolds into the bottom with a pile of cloth wipes, a wet bag, and a few extra Thirsties covers, and A is good for the day. The outer pockets easily hold her peri bottle of water, change of clothes, mason jar full of (so far unused) pacifiers, and the variety of other things she needs. I snap a small cooler of frozen milk right onto the handles and we’re good to go!
Jason bought this bag for me as a pre-baby gift, and it has been a great cloth diapering diaper bag. Although it is a bit ungainly (doesn’t stay on my arm with the smaller straps), I love the look, and it came with a great pair of hooks that attach to our stroller. All and all, the size is excellent given the added bulk of the diapers, and I can’t complain too much given all of the organizational possibilities it provides.
This product is excellent for diaper rash without containing the aloe that I am so allergic to. We’ve had no rash that this ointment doesn’t immediately eradicate. It’s also been great for mom’s minor cuts and scrapes and it smells fantastic!
