What Cloth Diapers would the 'Friends' Characters have used?

As I was rinsing out my daughter’s dirty diaper with a diaper sprayer I got to thinking, I wonder what kind of diaper Rachel from FRIENDS would use? Then I thought, a hybrid diaper for sure! That led me to start thinking of the kind of cloth diaper Phoebe and Monica would use. (I know…clearly I had a lot of time to think but really the thing is that with two little ones and being home full-time I’ve found that my mind is really
some times the only place where I can think about adult topics.) So here it is, a fun post celebrating that thing that we all love, cloth diapers!

The Rachel Diaper (aka the Hybrid Diaper) – Rachel’s the kind of cloth diapering mama who cares more about the look and style of her diaper than it’s actual functionality which is why a hybrid diaper with the ability to remove inserts (and possibly throw them away) and reuse the cover would be perfect for her. She could color coordinate the clothes with the diaper cover she’s using that day. Because Rachel knows her trends and fashion, she’d pick up a few Blueberry diapers and Goodmamas since they are the best! Then she’d slip them in with Monica’s diapers so Monica could wash them. Genius!

The Monica Diaper (aka the Pocket Diaper with flushable liners) – Because of their functionality, cleanliness and being able to flush the poos down the drain; Monica would definitely use a pocket diaper with flushable liners. Monica doesn’t care about how the diapers look on her twins. She wants a diaper that’s reliable and gets the job done.  Monica’s obsessive focus on organization and tidiness would also make a pretty sweet picture of how she would store her fluff, don’t you think?

The Phoebe Diaper (aka organic Prefolds with wool covers) – Every the hippie free spirit Phoebe’s main concern for her little ones is the material that touches their sweet little skin. Phoebe is also concerned about the way her diapers are made and because of that she only buys from “made in the USA” or “made in Canada” fluffy manufacturers or she buys from co-ops or off of Etsy. She also uses cloth wipes from only the most pure fabrics.

So which FRIENDS’ cloth diapering mama are you? Me? I’m undeniably Monica!

Elizabeth (aka Bert) Anderson married her college sweetheart in 2005, and started her journey into motherhood in 2008 with the birth of her son.  She started blogging in 2009 as a way to keep track of her thoughts on being a first time mom, especially her struggle with postpartum depression, and as a way of reaching out to other moms who are struggling with the same things.  This June, Bert had another first in her motherhood travels - a little girl!  Even though she's newly a mother of two, Bert maintains that no matter how many children you have you will always be a "first time mom" because there's a first time for everything!  Visit her blog, at FTM.

I'm a Monica, but I don't use flushable liners!

Don't use cloth! But LOVE Friends. I would maybe be a mix of Monica and Rachel!
