I love Cloth Diapers!
I have been cd'ing for over 3 months and find it super easy, cute and fun
My stash is simple and i like it:
24 bummis infant prefolds infant
3 size 1 bamboozle fitted
3 size med bumby fitted (also bamboo)
6bamboo prefolds/inserts (<3 <3 Bamboo <3<3)
4 GAD (Green Acre Design Pockets) stuffed with prefolds or flats
3 zorb doublers
6 staydry FLIP inserts
6 or 7 Bummis brand cover, mix of Polar Bummi (Fleece), Bummis Super Whisper Wrap (BSWW) and Bummis Superbrite (my fav out of these)
2 Flip covers, Zinnia, Ribbit- onesize, gentle leg elastic, perfect for the diaper bag/busy mom on the go!
1 whisper pant/dappi pullon LOVE this one, so gentle and trim, cheap and you can DYE them w/ koolaid! Fun!
~Wool~ I'm bulding my wool stash. Wool makes the perfect breathable cover. It absorbs 30% of its weight moisture, and lanolized covers "self clean", making them super reusable. Just air dry! Also act as clothes and cover in 1. Cool in the summer, hot in the winter.
1Rainbow Waters brand shorties
1 New2Ewe merino wool wrap- so soft and sqishy
1 Bumby pull on soaker (machine washable)
Did I say I had a simple stash? whew! Simple compared to others.
Wash Routine: (TOPLOADER)
Hot wash with fragrance free/optical brightener free detergent
Occasionally I will do a full warm wash cycle with a splash of vinegar ONLY to avoid detergent buildup
Hang Dry covers
Throw the rest in the dryer on HOT for 60-70 minutes
Alternatively I hang dry outside on sunny days. Gets rid of stains. Got stains?SUN SUN SUN those diapers. It's magic. I plan on line drying for the most part when it warms up.
