Cloth diapering newborn addition
I have been cloth diapering for over 2 years now with Evelyn. I started when she was 2 months old so she fit into her one size diapers then. I was going to wait to start with this little guy until he was about that old too but, I changed my mind and have decided to start a week or so after we get home. I have 2 packs of newborn disposables so I am thinking after I run out of those I will put him in cloth.
I bought a set of newborn diapers and oh they are so little and cute. I tried to be responsible and not go crazy on cute prints and extra's because I know he won't be in these for too long.
I decided to go with pre folds and covers with a couple of fitted diapers. I choose 3 different types of pre folds. GMD yellow, Osocozy size 1, and osocozy perfect fit purple edge.
For covers I choose 3 Thirstie Duo's size 1, 2 rumperooz newborn size and 1 Bummi's newborn size.
For the fitteds I choose, a kissaluvs, a thirstie and a sandy's. These are a little big so they probably won't fit for a while but, I used a few fitteds with Evelyn at night time so I think these will come in handy later.
I am not sure how on board my family still is about cloth diapering. Mike still doesn't like it and I keep disposables in the house for him and for other people if they don't want to use cloth. I have really enjoyed it and I see how much better it is for Evelyn's skin and for the environment. We seem to go through so much trash as it is and I recycle everything I can. I can't imagine how much more trash we would have with at least 10-12 disposable diapers a day plus adding in a newborn who will go through more than that.
I have 6 covers, and about 30 pre folds. I also bought another wet bag. I already had snappi's and I already had 1 of the covers and 2 of the fitted diapers. So, all in all I probably spend a little over $100 for everything. I bought almost everything on sale and shopped around.
