Question by Amanda:
do one sized cloth diapers work for infants?

I am due in December and am considering cloth diapers. There are so many options out there and I am confused! Are one sized pocket diapers a good choice- even for an infant, or should I get infant sized diapers? Which brand(s) of cloth diapers did you like?


——————————————

Answer by ♥
I have the one size cloth diapers and I love them. I tried them on my one week old nephew who weighs just 7 lbs and they fit him perfectly. Then I just adjust the snaps and they fit my two year old. So the answer is yes, they really are one size. I use the sunbaby diapers off ebay, only because they are super cheap. I love them and have no problems with them. They are very soft, do not leak and cute. They come in a bunch of fun colors.

Has anyone used the respisense infant breathing monitor with cloth diapers?

Just wondering if the bulk of the cloth diaper would cause more false alarms with this particular monitor.

YOUR FAVORITE CLOTH DIAPERS FOR OLDER BABIES? http://birthpolicy.org/417/your-favorite-cloth-diapers-for-older-babies/ http://birthpolicy.org/417/your-favorite-cloth-diapers-for-older-babies/#comments Wed, 10 Nov 2010 18:49:52 +0000 admin http://birthpolicy.org/417/your-favorite-cloth-diapers-for-older-babies/ Question by rainwriterm:
Your favorite cloth diapers for older babies?

I have a 13 month old and we have never cloth diapered before. What are your favorite cloth diapers for more massive babies? He is 23 pounds and about 30 inches tall, and of course, really really active. What types would be ideal to use, and what types would be ideal to avoid?

Ugg… there are so many choice. With disposables it’s pretty much which brand do you want to pay for, and which one has the stretchiest sides. Ahh!

Pattern? All you need is a square or rectangle of fabric, depending on what fold you are doing.

Answer by Moon
Get gDiapers! They are the best! I have tried BumGenius and Bumkins. The Bumkins were cute but they leaked terribly!!! The BumGenius worked very well but they were also very bulky. You have to wash them twice and they take forever to dry! I like the gDiapers because it has a disposable inner liner and the cloth part very seldom gets dirty. My daughter can wear the cloth diaper for a couple of days before it needs to be washed. It also dries in 10 minutes out in the sun! No dryer needed! I only need about 4 diapers for her. I needed 24 BumGenius for both of my children and that was extremely expensive!!! The inner liner on the gDiaper can be either composted, flushed, or thrown away. If it is thrown away, it only takes 150 days (at most) to break down in the landfill. I do not think it gets any superior than that.

If you do not want to use a disposable liner, a cloth liner can be used.

TARGET sells the gDiapers and you can also purchase them online.

What are the best, easiest, most convenient cloth baby diapers?

I am totally overwhelmed looking at the endless products available/necessary for cloth diapering! I used cloth diapers for my babies (many years ago) and there was basically 1 choice. You got a cloth diaper, plastic pants and diaper pins and you learned how to put it together. NOW – there are diaper “systems”. How do you know what is needed, which is most convenient, and ideal for baby and new mom both? I am looking for a great product for my soon to arrive grandson. Thank you!

Answer by cally l
,You sound astounded like I was.
All they seem to do is make more waste and make Mums lazy, but do concur for going out for the day its a good idea.
I used to like swan-skin I do not know if its available any more so my second choice would be towling as long as its has conditioner in it and they are soft not scratchy.
When I think back I think the original nappy was made of flannel

What are the ideal cloth diapers for a newborn to 3 months- AIOs or Fitteds? What brands?

We have several assorted diapers for larger babies, mostly mediums, but I want to begin the cloth diapering at the beginning of my baby’s life. So, I am guessing I will need some xs and small diapers. What do you recommend brand wise and diaper wise? Also how many of these should I plan on getting? Thanks!
I really do not want to do prefolds. I would like to do the ones that you only insert a liner– but I did not want to get all one size diapers because I heard they do not hit newborns.


——————————————

Answer by versantly
just like disposable diapers, the answer varies by baby’s bottom. try different ones till you find the brand that works best.
