We put these products together for the parents that want a simple, complete, top-quality package that will take them from birth to potty training and that includes all of the necessary accessories that will make your cloth diapering experience a breeze.
Here is what is included in this package - and why we chose it:9 Best Bottom One Size Ai2 Diaper Covers (reg $16.95 each)
Newborn poo is runny. The Best Bottom Cover will hold it in, but it may get on the shell. That is why we put so many shells in this package: longevity and runny-poopy-ness. Expect to go through at least 6-8 shells in one day in the beginning. The good news? You can spot clean them on the fly with a cloth wipe!
Depending on your usage and laundering, you may need a few more shells down the line. But - by then, you will be addicted to cloth diapers and maybe even a little excited to buy the next new print/color.
If you plan to cloth diaper from 8+ pounds on, you need enough shells to keep in rotation 1) for mitigating laundry chores 2) longevity.
These will be your most washed, most used GARMENT (remember this) in the next 3 years. Each insert has been commercially wash-tested to last 200+ washes. You may need to add a few packs of extra inserts or added absorbency later on
depending on your particular baby's wetting habits - but it is always nice to get new fluff. Keep it in mind, but don't worry about it now.
Why did we skip the medium size? Economics. Smalls are recommended for 'birth to 14 pounds' and Larges for '16+ pounds'. Your baby will grow fast! So - we skipped the Mediums and opted for longevity and increased absorbency capacity. Dry baby = Happy Parents. SLEEP. You can always buy additional sets here
Snap In Best Bottom Overnight Inserts (2 Large)
Throw your wipes and dirty diapers into your trash can lined with a pail liner.
We chose the FuzziBunz Wipes because they are simple, soft and absorbent. Use 1 to clean. 1 to dry.
We toss our clean wipes into a basket next to our changing table. No folding. We simply dip a wipe into a solution of boiled water, tea tree oil, and a mild soap that we keep in a wipe warmer. We cheat and use Knickernappies Baby Bum Drops to make our solution.
Cloth wipes clean SOOO much better than disposables. They will also save your another $300. AND your hand stays cleaner with cloth!
2 Planetwise Reusable Diaper Pail Liners (reg $16.50 each)
These aren't fancy - but they do the job and have held up well over the last 3 years of constant use! Line your diaper pail with this washable, elastic-topped waterproof bag. When full, simply grab the bag and haul to your washer. No drips on the floor! No need to touch those dirty diapers! Dump in diapers into the machine by pushing the bottom. Toss in bag. Wash together.
You need 2 because you will continue to change diapers while the first is in the wash. You also want these to last...1 Planetwise Medium Wet/Dry Bag (reg $21.00)
Carry your wet and dry items in the same bag! Clever snap handle for easy carrying or attaching to your stroller.1 CJs BUTTer Spritz (reg $12.00)
With so many options and so much confusion about WHICH, exactly, diaper wetness barrier is safe for cloth diapers, we included one in this package to alleviate some anxiety. This is a big purchase and you don't want to ruin the diapers' absorbency by choosing a non-cloth-friendly ointment. We also love the scent and convenience of the CJs Spritz - no fingers in the bum!
Highly recommended. At the beginning, you don't need to spray off the "solid" poos. But when you introduce solid food, poop transforms. It must be discarded into the toilet. The diaper sprayer is a wonderful appliance for helping those peanut-buttery, sticky excrement into their rightful place: the toilet. We'll be using this accessory even after diapering. It makes a great personal shower (aka bidet), easily rinses out the potty training bowl, etc. Thankful for our sprayer.
