Talk to me about cloth diapers.

I recently quit my job and since I'm at home, I've been considering cloth diapers.

I'm thinking about the bumGenius 3.0 or just buying plain cloth and using safety pins.

I loved cloth diapers too. I really liked the BumGenius and often used them at night although sometimes they leaked. Fuzzibunz rarely leaked at night but they didn't seem to hold up as well in the long run. My diapers have been through two kids in over 6 years and are ready to go for another.

I used normal terry towelling nappy squares which I folded and pinned. Also I used flanalette nappy squares which I also folded and pinned. Lastly I found some second hand shaped nappies that had 3 press stud setting on them. All 3 types I had to use plastic pants with as they didn't have a waterproof outer covering. They work a treat. Occasionally you get blowouts but that also occurs with disposable. My oldest daughter was in cloth most of the time. My son who is now 20 months has been cloth the whole way. At nights I do use disposables though otherwise the cots get wet!!

We used Fuzzi Bunz for the first 10 months to a year, but at night used disposable. (heavy wetter at night). I would have used them longer if I was at home with her every day.

We use the cloth diapers called Fuzzi Bunz. They are easy to use and wash. At night they leak sometimes but if I wrap the inner liner with a regular cloth diaper then they are fine. When her poop is more solid it does just knock out of the diaper like the advertisement says.

I use them!

I make my own, modelled between a cross of the Bum Genuis and the Sweet Pea Diaper.

It's a pocket Onesize diaper, but with snaps, and LOTS of settings for my little guy.



I wash every 2-3 days, and don't mine. I also am a stay-at-home mom at the moment so it isn't a problem.



I also have prefolds, to use with pins, but tend to use them more as burp clothes then anything.

Definitely give it a try! I work full-time, but we've still been able to switch to cloth. I'd recommend using an all-in-one or pocket diaper if you're looking for simplicity.

I tired cloth diapers and i really wanted to use them, but they didnt seem to work with my son, he always seem to pee right through the pretective cover. So they didnt work them me.
