What All Do I Need?

This is part five of a series called "The Poop on Cloth Diapers." [To head back to the beginning, simply click on the series title in quotes]


What You Basically Need For Cloth Diapers - And Nothing More

This list contains the bare essentials of what you will need to use cloth diapers (whether full time, part time, or only weekends and holidays). Without these, someone will be calling Child Protective Services on you :)

- enough diapers -

- enough wipes -

- a trash bin -

- access to a running washing machine -

- cloth diaper-friendly detergent -

- cloth diaper-friendly rash cream -

What I listed above is the most basic of necessities. There is a myriad of other accessories that are handy, and even some that you may find necessary for you personally.  Here is my list of what else I use for my cloth diapers:

- a dryer, sometimes -

- a fold up drying rack, for other times -

- fabric trash can liners -

- a diaper sprayer -

- travel wet bags -

- reusable wipes -

Looking for specific brand recommendations?  Here's the stuff I use.  I have loved using these products, and I would recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat.


Thanks for making it through my series!  I really appreciate you taking the time to read through and give me feedback as we went along. Over the next several weeks I want to give you a tour of how cloth diapers work in our world.  With that, I can show you how our family's cloth diaper routine works, the system of organization I use, and the details on what I like about all these different accessories.

 And now, time for responses!  What is the most useful cloth diaper accessory for you? Mine - a diaper sprayer.  It is the one thing that has allowed poo to not be as big of a deal.

Hope you have a great week!

P.S.  Having a microwave again is fabulous!
