Now that I’m looking forward to another baby in cloth diapers, I’m taking a look at what I have (figuratively – I haven’t gotten diapers down from the attic). I do have lots of prefolds but they’re pretty large. I have the AIOs. I have a couple PUL covers and some Snappies. That’s about it. Thinking about the laundry issues with the AIOs is kind of depressing. I’m actually considering selling most of them on Diaper Swappers or Ebay and then buying smaller prefolds (and maybe some decent flats). I’ll probably keep a couple (most likely the ones that have stains that won’t come out) but I think the AIOs have had their day.
This is what I’m considering doing:
or Wool cover:
I plan on making my own fleece and wool covers. I can’t knit, but I can turn thrifted wool sweaters into covers! There are many sites on how to do this. I am also considering making some of my own fitted prefolds. Again, there many sites with instructions. Old flannel cut up and edged with a zig-zag stitch will make good reusable wipes. It feels nice to get rid of all the synthetic stuff.
Probably will be more posts on this in the future.
