Is Detergent Build Up Real?

Before we get into it, here’s a quick summary if you don’t have time to read the whole post (I do recommend clicking my links to see what I was saying a decade ago as well!)

Best ways to wash cloth diapers

  • Today’s detergents are very concentrated; you may not need as much as you think
  • However, cloth diapers are heavily soiled laundry, treat it that way!
  • Detergent that works well on your family’s laundry should be fine for cloth diapers
  • Try to wash every 2-3 days
  • Don’t pack the washer full!

Why do I care about cloth diaper detergent?

Cloth diaper detergents and washing cloth diapers have always been subjects near and dear to my heart. One of the first posts I wrote on this blog in 2009 talked about how the myth of needing special cloth diaper detergents prevented me from using cloth diapers from birth with my second child.

Bianca and Nola’s Overall Newborn Cloth Diapering Experience

If you click & buy, we may receive a small commission, thank you. PSA: Get ready for baby fever after reading this post! (Lots of adorable pictures of a newborn in cloth.)

Before the time comes that my Nola Baby is no longer a newborn but an infant (tears), I wanted to write an overview of the newborn diapers we used in her first 10 weeks. At her last appointment a week ago, she was 9lbs 15 ounces. So basically she should already be 10lbs! She is growing way too fast. We are currently doing a mix of cloth diapers and disposable diapers. I know there will be a time when we are strictly cloth, but for the time being a mix of both is what works well for our family.

The first diaper Nola wore was a pink newborn THX All in One. She was 2 days old. I loved these diapers! They fit so well and the umbilical cord snap down was a great feature! Although a great fit, as she started growing, the diaper started to absorb less. I had a couple of leaks with these. Specs: umbilical cord snap down, waterproof PUL outside layer, an absorbent core, and a microfleece inner layer, manufacturer recommendation: 6-12 pounds.

Tips for Cloth Diapering Two Children at the Same Time

When Lucy was born in June of 2014, Emilio was 3 years old and still in cloth diapers. Although still in cloth, I knew it wouldn’t be long until he would be potty learning and using cloth trainers soon. I had no idea how I was going to go about cloth diapering two children at once. There was some trial and error at the beginning, but after I figured out a routine, it became much easier.
