How many cloth diapers do you need in your stash?

If you're new to cloth and you may be wondering what is the perfect stash size. There are many different answers and it really depends who you ask, but there are some general guidelines to get you started.

Figuring out about how many diapers you'll need a day is the first step. Here are some general guidelines:

  • Newborns - 12-15 diapers a day
  • 2-6 months - 10-12 diapers a day
  • 6+ months - 8-10 diapers a day
You will want to wash your diapers ever 2-3 days, so a stash that is big enough to get you through until wash day is necessary. The bigger your stash, the longer you'll have to go without washing. That being said, you will still need to wash every 2-3 days even if your stash is big enough to get you through a week.

Some tips:

  • The bigger your stash is, the less wear and tear you will have on your diapers. 
  • Cloth diapers are addicting! Don't be surprised if you start with the perfect amount, but keep adding diapers because you can't stay away from the cute colors and prints! 
We hope these tips have helped you better understand how many cloth diapers you need, or do not need, in order to cloth diaper successfully!

So, how many diapers do you have?

Tips for leaving cloth diapers for your babysitter!

You finally convinced yourself to take a night off and go on a date with your significant other! Congrats! You even made the big step and hired a babysitter. Now comes the hard part, what do you do about cloth diapers? Do you buy a package of disposables for the babysitter or hope for the best and leave behind your cloth diapers? Here are some tips for making cloth diapering a success for your babysitter:

Choose wisely! Pick the easiest diapers in your stash. All-in-ones or pocket diapers (already stuffed) with hook and loop are the most like disposable diapers. If you only have  a stash of flats or prefolds, consider pad folding your prefolds or trifolding your flats and have them lying in covers ready to go. The less complicated your diapers are, the easier it will be for your babysitter to get the hang of things.

What about the poop? Consider leaving flushable liners for your sitter. If you don't have liners, leave a wet bag behind for your sitter to contain poopy diapers. You can spray them when you get home.

Remove any creams that could be harmful to your diapers! Save yourself the headache of scrubbing diaper cream off of your diapers. Hide away any unapproved creams and prevent accidents from happening.

Change one diaper before you go! Show your sitter how easy cloth diapers are by changing a diaper. If you don't make it a big deal, your sitter will most likely not consider it one!

Leave brief easy notes for your sitter. You want your kids to have fun with their new babysitter. That will happen much easier if your sitter is relaxed and not stressed.

Remember that every babysitter is different. Some sitters may be more open to new things that others. And your sitter may just fall in love with cloth and be open to all of the diapers in your stash, not just the "easy" ones!

What to stock in your [cloth] diaper bag!

Okay cloth diapering mamas! You may be wondering what you need in your diaper bag once your little one arrives! Here's my list of must haves!

1. Diapers! The number really depends on how long you will be away from your home. I would plan on one diaper for every 2 hours you'll be away, plus one extra just in case!

2. Wipes! You'll need a stash of wipes to get you through the outings as well. If you use cloth wipes that aren't pre-moistened, don't forget to bring a spray bottle of solution.

3. Diaper Cream! Even if you don't use diaper cream at every diaper change, you never know when you'll need it. A sample size is perfect for keeping things light in your bag.

4. Wet Bag! You need someone to store those dirty diapers that will keep the smell and wetness from contaminating the rest of you diaper bag.

5. Flushable liners! If your baby is on formula or solid foods, you may want to consider bringing a roll of flushable liners to make diaper changes a breeze on the go!

6. Changing Pad! You'll need someone clean to put your baby down for diaper changes. A blanket works as well.

7. Hand Sanitizer! Just in case you have to change your baby somewhere where you won't have access to a soap and sink, keep a small bottle of hand sanitizer near by!

These are just the essentials for cloth diapers. What else do you stock in your diaper bag?
