So I am taking the plunge. I want to TRY cloth diapers. This is not a complete conversion but a complete conversion is possible. Previously I didn't cloth diaper because my husband showed some apprehension on changing a cloth diaper and having to rinse it off. Today, I realized that I am the one that changes probably 90% or greater of his diapers. If I have to change him into a disposable once in a while for my husband to be comfortable watching him when I need to run out for a bit, that will still save us money. Also, I plan on keeping my beloved throw aways for over nights.
This is why I started to research. It looks like there are a wide variety of prices, types, styles and accessories to choose from. From what I have gathered, I will likely need the following:
- Wet Bag (for away from home)
- Some sort of diaper pail (Can I just use a 5 gallon bucket? No idea.)
- Diapers (duh)
- Inserts - If I pick Pocket Diapers. Exclude if you pick an AIO, or All in One
- DEFINITELY need a diaper sprayer. (Link to one I found on Amazon that won't break the bank)
I don't know if I am leaving anything out. I'm really very new at this. What are your favorite cloth diapers? What did you like about them? Where do you find the best deals on them?
