Cloth Diapering

School of Cloth Week 5: Traveling With Cloth Diapers


School of Cloth is an annual, month-long event with cloth diaper classes hosted by Real Diaper Circles, Real Diaper Association businesses, and cloth diapering veterans. If you attend a class, you can receive certificates and enter to win a cloth diapering package. If you win, you can receive a cloth diaper charity, like Giving Diapers Giving Hope, to receive a matching prize! Every week, I’ll cover a different topic, and invite you to link your blog posts as well. This week’s topic is traveling with cloth diapers.

Traveling with cloth diapers is easier than you might think. In fact, one Mom even used cloth diapers while traveling internationally!

If you have access to a washing machine, you’re golden. If not, you might want to consider using flats and covers since they are so easy to hand wash, as I did during the flats challenge.

In either case, you may be tight on space so I recommend using an all-in-two system like covers and prefolds, inserts or flats since they tend to take up less space than pockets or all in ones.

Some families choose to use disposable inserts with cloth diaper covers, or just use disposable diapers for the trip. Here’s a pro tip: if you’ve used cloth diapers for a while, the disposable diaper blowouts will take you by surprise. Put a cloth diaper cover over top to contain the mess!

    I didn’t manage to get mine done, the week was just too hectic, but I enjoyed blogging along the first 4 weeks!
