Start Saving! We suggest that as soon as you know that you are pregnant and going to use cloth diapers, you begin to save $60/mo for the entire pregnancy. Then you have your diapering needs covered for the next three years!

Baby Shower wish lists are good. So are BumRite Gift Certificates!

SMART IDEAS by our customers

"...I'm about to diaper two kids, so I moved my diaper station onto the folding table in my laundry room. Don't know why I didn't think of this before; now I just grab a cover hang drying from my handy IKEA laundry claw- with only one baby I used to fold them all up nice and neat. Not so anymore!

Ready to go with cloth diapers? Here is how many of each item you will need:

  • 18-36 diapers (the more the merrier and longer they will last!)
  • Diaper Pail (I bought a standard kitchen garbage can with lid from Target)
  • 2 Diaper Pail liners to be used in laundry rotation
  • 2 to 3 dozen cloth diaper wipes
