Episode 69: Cloth Diapers – Part 2

When it comes to diapers, most parents are looking for the easiest option out there. That’s part of why disposables are so popular! But, if you tuned in last week, you know that when you choose disposables you might be sacrificing a lot of things that you’re not okay with. So, how can we make cloth diapering a little easier? That’s what Bailey and I are here to do today! In Part 2, Bailey is tackling the “how-to’s” of cloth diapers and answering all the questions you might have.

What type of diaper is best for me? How many different types are there?! Where is the best place to buy cloth diapers? And how in the world do I clean these things? These are just a few of the common questions that any cloth diapering mama might have. Well, Bailey and I giving you the straight poop on how cloth diapers actually work. We’re talking about how you can make sure your diapers are truly getting clean and providing plenty of other resources to give you some support on this parenting and diapering journey, both for the stay-at-home parents and the working ones!

One of my biggest takeaways from what Bailey shared was the encouragement that we don’t have to do things perfectly to make a difference. Even if we still use the occasional disposable diaper, or if we’re only using cloth diapers on the weekends, our choices as consumers and as caretakers still hold a lot of impact. May that knowledge empower you, and don’t forget that you have two people here for you in this journey right here!
