Cloth Diapering (again)

I'm in a few due date communities here and there and recently made this post in one of them. A lot of women read it and have decided to cloth diaper their babies! I found that so exciting I figured it couldn't hurt to post the same information here in case anyone else could benefit from it. It's mostly a series of links- but all really helpful I think and it's nice to have it all in one place.


For anyone contemplating- or NOT contemplating using cloth diapers- here are my favorite cloth diapering resources. I was one of those women who said "NEVER" in regards to cloth diapers. I'm not even quite sure why I even gave it a second though, but now I'm really glad I did. After I read up a little more about how easy and awesome they are, I decided to give it a try. And I've never looked back and now my only regret is that I didn't start with cloth from day ONE!

These were what helped me make the decision:

Here is another great resource about cloth diapering that has also helped me tremendously along the way:

This site is quite helpful when it comes to choosing the right detergent for your diapers along with all sorts of other information (including cloth-approved commercial diaper rash creams!):


I just wanted to add that I'm getting more and more excited about trying to make a few more of my own diapers. I've already used (and liked) this site for making diapers and now I've found a new pattern that I plan to try as soon as I get a chance. It looks really easy and it's very cute and looks to me like it would work really well. Making diapers is one way to fulfill some of my crazy nesting instincts! I like doing that in preparation for a new baby. :)
