  • Cloth Diapers

    My baby grandson needs to start using cloth diapers due to some wicked heat/diaper rash.

    They don't sell them in any stores locally, so I'm ordering online. They're all so different nowadays from when my kids were wearing them.

    Anybody have good results with the all-in-one cloth diapers with closures?

      My mother has used cloth with all 6 of her kids.

      My mom says,one of the problems with the all in one diapers is that they don't tend to dry thoroughly.There are some all in ones that come with an insert that you can take out and put back in,that way you can hang them up out side and they will dry faster.Her choice has always been the big chinese pre-folds with pins and plastic pants[whisper pants].They are easier use as they can be used from a very small size till potty training,also you can fold them any way you want.

      You can google cloth diapers and you'll find a lot of stuff too.

        I use cloth diapers. Started with my eldest (now 14) and still do today. My faves are Kooshies. Very absorbent. I have tried a few others that people gave me but always prefered the Kooshies. I recommend the ultras. They are all good all though the basics (cheaper) are not as absorbent...and they are super cute. I also recommend cloth liners...all though many people make their own liners. There is an initial cost but since you won't be buying disposables again it makes up for it very quickly. To save money when you wash put on an extra spin cycle then hang to dry. Now hang drying leaves them stiffer so a quick toss in the dryer after with a wet cloth softens back up. You will also need a diaper pail. All you really need in this is water & vinegar (for smell).

          Yes we've used the kushies!! We used them to line the chinese prefolds.
          We still have them,they are so cute! There's nothing like the smell of clean diapers off the line.

            Thanks for all the info.

            When I used the "fold your own", I'd hang them out on the line and our WYO wind would beat them into softness.

              In the winter ours freeze dry...but that smells nice. And in the summer I often throw em in the dryer cuz it gets so humid they take forever to dry, and on those days there is no wind.

                I know what your talking about,they just kind of hang there in the humidity..you start to worry that they will get moldy,or mossy!
                Usually the wind beats them out real nice and they come in nice and soft,but now we don't hang too much laundry outside because too many of our family have allergies.

                  late add in here. I dont like all in one or all in two dipes. They tend to retain odors more,since you cannot strip them properly. Because of the pull being sewn on. Prefolds and covers are both inexpensive but alot more durable.
                  I use pockets dipes for my two right now

                    I ended up ordering prefolds and some good covers (hope they're good) from BabysRUs. BumGenius had a pack for $50(!).

                    One online store had a sample pack of several different all-in-ones and I ALMOST went for it. Hopefully our pack will get here soon, but luckily we're having a cold spell and baby shouldn't be getting too much heat rash now.
