Good Questions: Cloth Diapers

Pin it button big

Jennifer P. sent us an email: "I'm expecting my first child in August and am interested in cloth diapers.

I have no idea where to start, how to clean them, etc. Do you have any leads?"

Good question, Jennifer!

Many families have different reasons for choosing cloth diapers -- environmental reasons, or to help prevent diaper rash, but for families who are new at cloth diapering the choices can be overwhelming.

We're partial to Kissaluvs fitted diapers which come in many colors, have non-pilling cotton fleece, good leak containment and easy snap closures. (Kristen's cloth diaper post also suggests other great brands.)

What about you? If you are a cloth diapering family, which diaper do you use? Why do you prefer cloth? What advice can you give Jennifer or anyone new to cloth diapers?
