    Cloth Diapers

    Advertisements
    Ok so Im a little interested in them.....but I know NOTHING about them. I need some help. I was looking at some sites and for like one diaper its like 20 bucks, thats how much I spend a month on disposables. I do have the prefolds(I think) that Im using as burp rags.

    Yes, but that $20 diaper (depending on if it's a one-size or not) will last you more wearings than one pack of diapers- much longer if you take care of it.

    Go here for info:

    If you want to make your own (much cheaper) go here:

    yep to what rockstarmom and bex said.

    also if you have gerber prefolds that you can get from walmart or target or whatever they are not thick enough to be used really for diapers. the diapers like chinese or indian prefolds are thicker in the middle which is the super absorbant part.

    I have used the gerbers to stuff a pocket diaper in a pinch and I have even used them the old fashioned way. They are not a natural fiber though they have polyester fill in them. Which sort of defeats some peoples purpose in cloth diapering. You can also buy diapers used, or check out Miricle Diapers which is for low income families.

    I got mine off Ebay, I spent no more than $5 for each and then she combined them to save on shipping. It worked out great

    I use gerber flats (the ones w/o the poly fill) and gdiaper covers and that has been great for us. Also I use floursack towels (I htink that is what they are) as flats also. I'm not a fan of pockets, all in ones, as my method has been great for me....

    I am a member of diapertraders.com as well as diaperswappers.com I love them!! Also check your craigs list, sometimes you'd be surprised what you might find!! That's where I scored some of my stash!!!
