Do you have a question about cloth diapering? Every Monday, I answer a question, and ask you to give your opinion too.
Questions don’t have to be cloth diaper related, just email maria at change-diapers.com with “Mailbox Mondays” in the subject, or fill out my contact form for readers, which you will always be able to find on my Contact Page.
Another suggestion for a topic to address was how cloth diapering a boy vs. a girl is different.
I have cloth diapered 2 boys, but my oldest child, a girl (now 7 1/2) was disposable diapered (shame on me!)
The big difference is that (generally) girls will need more absorbency in the middle, while boys need more up front. Similarly, boys may not do as well with really “low rise” diapers, and might do better with a sized up diaper that sits closer to his belly button.
On the other hand, girls sometimes need absorbency up front, especially if they are tummy sleepers!
Have you cloth diapered both a boy and a girl? What differences did you notice?
