Ready to make the switch?

It’s never too late to switch to cloth diapers. Here are 5 quick tips for switching to cloth from disposable diapers:

Change regularly – Cloth diapers don’t have super absorbent gel, so plan to change every 2-3 hours.

Add absorbency – Add a hemp doubler or insert to boost absorbency when you need to change less frequently. (Naps etc.)

Cloth diapers fit differently – Cloth diapers don’t sit high in the back like a disposable. Aim to get the front & rear at or slightly below the bellybutton. Some diapers are designed to scoop below the belly button.

Try different brands and styles – What your best friend or neighbor loves might not be your preference. Try a few brands, or even a cloth diaper trial.

Don’t sweat the washing – Keep it simple sweetie! Washing cloth diapers doesn’t have to be difficult.
