Here are my latest The Diaper Facts columns.
The answers to everything you ever wanted to ask about choosing and using cloth diapers!
I want to switch to cloth diapers. Please help. I don't know where to start. Please tell me what I need to start...
I have several questions! I am using a diaper service, but it just doesn't seem to be working out for me!
1. When I change my babies' diapers, the diaper is completely soaked and their covers are very wet too. Usually I just wipe the covers down with a wipe, but it is such a pain, and I end up washing covers all day long! The covers are supposed to be waterproof, but my babies leak all over their clothing!
I know I want to use cloth diapers on my baby, who will be born very soon. How do I find a diaper service? Are the diaper services more expensive than disposable diapers? If I can't find one in my city, how hard will it be to wash my own?
I thought I would use cloth diapers, but my husband keeps going on about how expensive will it be to wash them!
One common problem experienced by all using cloth diapers is smell. Here are some common causes that can exacerbate the problem. You may not be experiencing problems with your current washing routine, but if you are here are some suggestions to combat the problem.
I just washed up a lovely pile of cloth diapers, and pull them to my face for a good whiff of nice, clean diapers. But what did I smell instead? E-e-w-w! Stinky diapers!! What went wrong???
Toss those stinky diapers right back into the washing machine!
With a good quality cloth diapering system, you should be experiencing almost no leakage...
Do you need a cover over fitted diapers? If so, what do you recommend? And how many washings before a cover would start to deteriorate? Do you have to wash a cover as often as the diapers? Do you recommend the snap or the Velcro® style? When washing the Velcro® style covers, wouldn't the Velcro® attach to other diapers and covers in the wash... or even deteriorate over time?
