Should I use cloth diapers or disposable?
This boils down to personal choice of course, but cloth diapers offer you and your baby many benefits. Believe it or not, parents deal with fewer blowouts when babies are in cloth, that means dealing with less of the dirty stuff. They also experience fewer to zero skin issues such as rashes, earlier potty training, and of course great financial savings. More on that below!
What are the benefits of cloth diapers?
As we mentioned above, cloth diapers offer many benefits. Believe it or not, parents deal with fewer blowouts when babies are in cloth because of that back elastic. They also experience fewer to zero skin issues such as rashes, earlier potty training, and of course- financial savings. You can also sell your diapers when you’re finished (providing they are kept in good condition) to regain most of what is spent on them.
How many cloth diapers do you need?
This varies, but for the most part you can go by these guidelines. For newborns 12-15 per day, for infants 8-12 per day, and for toddlers 6-8 per day should do you just fine. You can calculate how many you’d like to have on hand by determining how often you’ll be doing a wash. Keep in mind, the more you have, the less wear and tear on each diaper and the better the condition will be when your baby is ready to potty training. This means you can pack them away in breathable storage for future babies, or sell them to recoup costs.
Do you really save money using cloth diapers?
Absolutely, and we’ve compiled this chart to show you just how much you’ll save. We’ve included popular budget brands as well as high end disposables for comparison.
What is the best cloth diaper?
The best all-around option is definitely the Easy Peasies one size pocket diaper. They literally fit from birth (6lbs), up to potty training (40 lbs). Made for fitting babies with skinny and chunky thighs alike, each diaper has multiple snap settings to insure you get just the right fit. We recommend pairing the pocket diaper with our 2-ply bamboo trifold and keeping a few 3-ply and 4-ply trifolds on hand for when you need more absorbency for extended periods, like overnight or car trips.
Do your diapers fit preschoolers?
Our One Size Ready-Use does! This diaper was designed for overnight use and bigger kiddos. It has an over-all larger fit and can be upgraded to the Dry-Nights AIO system. All of the absorbency in this diaper is comprised of natural fibres like hemp and bamboo for trimness and super soaking power.

What is the difference between pocket and all in one (AIO) cloth diapers?
The term AIO means to be all in one piece and pocket diapers have an opening where you can put inserts inside (separate pieces).
With the AIO diaper, the inserts are removable but they do snap in to make it a single unit. The pocket diaper is multiple separate pieces that cannot be attached.
How long do cloth diapers last?
The life of cloth diapers is dependant on the treatment and size of your stash. The more diapers you have the less wear and tear on them. Well cared for diapers can easily last for the use of 2 children. Some maintenance may need to be done after that time, like replacing worn out elastics, and swapping out the fleece lining but the snaps and PUL last a very long time when taken care of.
How often should you change a cloth diaper?
Depending on your baby, daytime diapers need to be changed every 2-4 hours. The more absorbency you put in them the longer they will absorb for!
