    As a baby that was cloth diapered I grew up only knowing cloth. It wasn’t until I became a baby-sitter that I saw these newfangled contrapations that called themselves diapers. I want Tatum to grow up the same way. I want her to know that I did cloth because I cared about what went on her bum. I want her to make this world a little more green. I want her to know what a cute fluffy bum looks like. That’s why I want Tatum to know about cloth.

    Love this week’s giveaway. I didn’t stop playing with dolls until it became socially unacceptable…we’re talking almost 8th grade! My dolls all had cloth too!

    Well, my son already knows about how and why we use cloth on his sister. We just told him and he thought it was a good idea. So I am sure we will do the same for her as she gets older. Having cloth as opposed to disposable diapers for the dolls would certainly help. :)

    My daughter is too young to really teach her about her cloth diapers. However, she will be the oldest sibling. I will teach her about cloth diapering by having her help me diaper her younger siblings. I will start with simple tasks like fetching me a diaper or helping me hang dry them. I will also get her excited to wear all the pretty colors that she has!

    My older son changes the diapers, might as well show him they are easy from the start. My daughter I made some for her dolls and well they turned into underwear for them. Also making them apart of the proccess, folding wipes or stuffing diapers.

  12. My youngest got a doll for Christmas and it didn’t have a diaper. So we made her a cloth (out of some old burp cloth) diaper with a snappi, I think it’s super important to explain to my girls why I chose cloth as they get older they are 3 and 2. My oldest loves to help fold the diapers. To them cloth diapers are the only kind of diapers there are.

    These are SO cute! My 2 older daughters will LOVE playing with these cloth dipes on their dolls while I am “playing” with my newborn doll in 2-3 weeks! As for teaching my beloved children about cloth diapering, I intend to instill those convictions the same way I do breastfeeding and baby food making and all the other beliefs I hold dear- by modeling and demonstrating and taking time to explain why we do what we do… they catch on quick. Since they love their cloth dipes so much now, I think they’ll definitely be more inclined to use them on their children!

    At 23 months my daughter loves to try to put her diapers on her dolls and it would be so nice to have diapers that are easier for her and fit well. I imagine playing with dolls will help her learn about cloth, and of course she’ll see the cloth in use on her sibling when we have another baby.

    These are so cute. Carley, it’s funny you grew up knowing only cloth while I grew up knowing nothing about cloth! Even when I was pregnant I didn’t even think about cloth. It wasn’t until I began getting fed up with all the rash paper diapers caused.

    These are such cute diapers!

    I have a 3.5 year old that has asked tons of questions about cloth diapers since we switched to them with his sister about 6 months ago. He actually gets very excited helping sort the inserts/diapers after they are washed. He now asks other people (friends, etc) if they use cloth diapers too.

    I have a three year old daughter and a 5 month old son. My daughter loves to help me get her brother’s diapers together…she’s been trying to be allowed to change his diapers too…heh. I think cloth diapers are amazing these days-and my daughter loves getting to choose which diaper her brother is going to wear. It is nice not having full trash bags of diapers a couple times per week-makes me feel much better about living in our wasteful society(:

    I was actually considering purchasing some “sew-in-love” diapers from Etsy! (: They are super adorable!!!

    My daughter is 9 months old and I started CD’ing her at 7 months. Right now I just try to have fun with her when changing her diaper. I let her play with the shells. She loves it when she grabs the diaper and I say “gimmme gimme gimme!” while trying to shake her off with the diaper, she just giggles! I can let her chew on it without worrying what chemicals she is putting in her mouth!

    We try to talk to our children about why we use cloth diapers. And, in general, teach them about creating less waste, recycling, etc. I’m getting some good ideas about having the kids help with putting them together, away in drawers, etc. from other responses! It’s great!

    I haven’t thought about ways to teach my 4 year old son about cloth diapers. I guess I just show by doing. We are new to cloth though, and one day when he saw that my daughter had a messey diaper in one of her cloth diapers he said, “Uh oh, did she go in her underwear like I sometimes do?” So that was a moment to teach him about what they were and that it was ok for her to go in her cloth but not him, lol!
    He now likes to help me fold and put them away. I’ll be thinking about what play things we can do. Maybe play store and buy some cloth diapers for his sister!

    My boys are a little young to understand the difference between disposable and cloth diapers. However, my oldest does help me with the fluff laundry. Although I couldn’t use the doll diapers, I would pass them on to a friend who CD’s and has a little girl. I would so love the KC gift card though – there are several diapers on my wish list that I would love to pick up!

    I love the idea of cloth diapers for dolls! I’m a nurse and that’s the way we try and teach kids about their medical conditions/siblings conditions– through play with dolls, so I think that’s a great idea! I’m still pregnant with my first so I haven’t had a chance to try out cloth diapers or teaching my own children, but I can’t wait!

    At this point, I have a toddler who watches me use cloth diapers on her newborn sister and who wears cloth now and then too. With her, I try to emphasize that the cloth diapers are cute and colorful. I think that really gets her interest in them over her boring disposable diapers. All the colors and patterns are so fun! I know that’s one thing that’s helped me get into CDing! :)

My daughter turns three today and she just loves doing everything I do with her brother (my second child) with her dolls. I am sure it will be the same with her new sister or brother. I love that she is learning about cloth diapering by watching me. What a great give away!

    I love the idea about teaching my children the benefits of using cloth diapers. But I will have to say, up to this point I haven’t made a huge deal about it. My oldest, who is 4 1/2, loves to help me recycle and understands taht when we do, the material can be used again. I guess this is as good of a time as any to explain why we use cloth. But it’s also funny I think that he has never questioned why we use cloth vs. disposables, maybe because he has never known any different.

  96. Suzy said...

    My son’s see “Kylie’s diaper and think they are cute. They are 2 and 3 1/2. Right know I am just showing them the good example I can give. They are both in trainers know, so to late for cloth there. As they get older and we have more children we will be able to show them the empact our family’s cloth diapering will have. I would hope to show my children the wonderful benefits it gave to us and when they are ready they could make the same choices.

    We are new to cloth diapering – only about a month now. My older 3 children were all diapered with disposables. So, there has been an obvious change for my two older daughters (6 & 4) to notice. They love the "fun" diaper colors. Their favorite is our Blueberry diaper in "pink lemonade". The "oohs and ahhs" begin every time we put it on our youngest daughter. :-) It would be great if their dolls could make the switch from disposables to cloth as well!!! Thanks for the giveaway!

    I posted a comment on “Then there was Sand and Sun”

  106. Amanda said...

    My older two daughters also like the fact that we do not have to try to get rid of all of those smelly disposable diapers for their little sister like we did with their little brother. We live in the country and burn our garbage at home, and disposables won’t burn. So, when my two-year old son was still in diapers we had to take smelly sacks of disposables along with us on every car ride to get rid of them. :( It’s much more pleasant to just put them in the wet bag and transfer that to the wash later on. :)

    roegnerfamily@earthlink.net

  107. Amanda said...

    Another way my older girls are learning about cloth is by fetching the different kinds of diapers and inserts when I request them. Since we’re new to cloth, I’ve tried out a few different kinds but we use them all each day (I only have enough diapers that I still have to wash every day). The girls are learning early about snaps and velcro, hemp and terry, etc….

    just using cloth diapers seems to be enough to teach my daughters about them. recently my 5 year old laughed at a baby wearing a “paper diaper” and my 20 month old doesn’t even recognize disposables as diapers. We could certainly use a few doll diapers.

    this is a GREAT question. my son has been putting our cloth diapers on his teddy’s and elmo and whoever else for over a year now, he now has a baby brother and fully understands at 4 what it means to throw things away or choose things that can be reused. what a wonderful GREEn lesson as a parent to pass on. bless ya all.

    I haven’t really thought much about this. Both my little ones are under two so we aren’t doing much yet! As they get older and realize that “normal” to us isn’t “normal” to everyone else, I hope to be able to articulate why we make the choices we do and how it is healthy for them, the world and our budget!

    Well, my DD is only 17 months old thus far. But, I'm always putting a matching CD on her Curious George (unless she is wearing pink…lol). She & George are like two peas in a pod. She used to just take the diaper off but now she opens and closes the diaper…you can see her little mind working and thinking. Plus I always tell her what a cute fluffy butt she has…so as she gets older, she will see her cloth diapers as being cute…much cuter than her peers paper bottoms.

    My daughters fold the wipes and put them in the wipe basket. They also help me hang the diapers outside. We all watch my makeshift clothesline outside and wait to see if it will fall over. We laugh as we run outside to hang everything back up! Those are great memories!

    I have discussed the importance of cloth w/my children including the benefits of health, the environment, & of course, the huge $$ savings. My girls have helped me make recycled cloth wipes out of clothes that have worn out, but could still serve a wonderful purpose. They also help me fold clean diapers, & their dolls wear cloth too :0).

    My son is 2, I think that just by cloth diapering him and having him see me cloth diaper his little sister (who is due in 4 weeks! yea!) he (and she) will grow up seeing tha we use reusable goods in our lives and have that become part of what they consider “normal”

    And it must be working-he tried to put a CD on his Buzz Lightyear doll yesterday, he needed a little help of course, but it was cool to see him mimic my everyday activity!

    I did not cloth my daughter but her younger brother is in cloth so she sees his all the time. None of dolls are diapered at the moment but I can imagine how fun she would think this was and it would help us in our quest to demonstrate cloth to everyone able to listen. :)

    I only switched to cloth when I had my 4th so I explained to my older 2 how much sposies impact us. They also help diaper Rylen & see how easy it is! My oldest will even help unload the washer & hang the diaps up he thinks this is much cooler than "diaper duty" that my nephews have (they have to take all diaps to the outside trash can lol)

    We just started using cloth, so I haven’t had much of a chance to explain/talk to my daughter about it. We have talked about how much more comfortable they are than her old disposables and she calls them her comfy diapers.

  217. Brinley's Momma said...

    This is such a great giveaway! My daughter’s first birthday is on Thursday and this would be an awesome gift since hubby and I were thinking of getting her a doll.

    Anyway, although DD is too young to learn why using cloth is important, as she gets older I plan on explaining to her that it is better for the earth, and more importantly, her! I hope what she takes from my hubby and I using cloth on her now, and us using cloth on any subsequent brothers and sisters leaves a positive impact on her. ANDINIC_83@YAHOO.COM

    My 2 oldest girls thought it was funny when we switched to cloth for their baby sister. I explained to them a little bit of why we decided to do it, and now it’s just normal. They help me fold the diapers. We usually have a prefold diaper pinned onto at least one of their baby dolls.

    My 10 year old helps me with the diaper laundry and sometimes helps change the bambino’s diaper. My 3 year old has cloth diapers on his Tigger and Potty Scotty dolls. As a family we try to live pretty frugally. When we used disposable diapers, my 10 yo saw how we used them and threw them away and spent money on more every time we went to the store. And now with cloth, we just wash and reuse. Better for our budget, better for the baby, better for the environment.

    My little one isn’t old enough to teach him about cloth diapers, but he certainly wears them. I intend to teach him to be aware of his impact on the earth, and cloth diapers are certainly a part of that.

    I also think that just knowing that we do it makes the kid more likely to. I was first introduced to cloth diapering when my step mom did it with my brother and sister and now I do it. So I think my kids are likely to do it.

  269. Erika said...

    I never thought about it before. My oldest at 2 yrs knows the difference between cloth and disposables. Right now “teaching” is keeping her from throwing away the cloth in the disposable diaper bag and from trying to wash the disposables.

Hannah has helped me choose colors of diapers to order for the new baby (and herself since she has no desire to potty train yet) and LOVES deciding what color diaper to wear!

    My girls know I was interested in CD because we went from a place that recycled almost everything to an area with zero recycling. It was killing me putting so much in our trash can. The thought of throwing away sooo many diapers was overwhelming!
    We were all screeching when I found a recycling center in our area! My girls enjoy putting the recycles in the bins and CD just makes sense to them!

  291. Anonymous said...

    I’m going to teach my kids to be aware when they are throwing anything away, and help them learn to think about deciding to reuse something, recycle it, or toss it. Cloth diapering can be second nature for them, just like recycling cardboard and paper is for me due to my “Recycle, Reduce, Reuse” elementary school training. :)

    When we have baby # DD will probably be about 3 (she is 17 mo. now & we plan on trying in December) So, at that age she will be much more aware of the diapers that I'm putting on the new baby. I will even let her pick out colors for the baby to wear.

    Even at 7 months old, Grace is already starting to be active in the laundering process. She loves to “help” by pushing over my stacks of diapers as I launder them. Before too long I’ll be able to teach her that her cloth diapers are “special” and different than disposables.

    I let my daughters pick out which diapers they will wear for naps and bedtime (they are both PT during the day! Wahoo!) and when DD#3 is born in a few weeks, I’ll let them help me pick out her diapers – and change them if they want to! (Certainly not going to say no to someone else changing a diaper around here!) They love their soft diapers- and they see their momma talk them up everywhere we go and to everyone we know! Teaching by walking the walk and talking the talk… no better way!

  329. My older daughter sees me changing my younger daughter’s diaper. We use mostly cloth with some disposable and she knows the difference. I think that the doll diapers are so cute and they would help teach her too.

    My daughter is only an infant, but will grow up only knowing cloth! If we ever have another child (ugh…haha) that baby would be cloth diapered, too, so Nora would have first hand experience of it when she was a little older.

  374. So you have made me think for answers to this question. But My next answer is that I talk about cloth diapers to other Mom’s (maybe a little too passionately but oh well) And some have even switched over. This I think will influence my daughter in the future versus right now since she is only a year and a half.

    I missed yesterday’s comment but was thinking about it all day. I have boys and for some reason never really talked to them about the whole cloth diaper reasoning. Maybe it’s because they don’t play with dolls and that specific opening wasn’t there. But then yesterday I got thinking about the movie WALL-E, which is one of my oldest sons favorite movies. The premise of the movie is that the Earth is covered with so much trash everyone must leave Earth and live in space. Well, I thought, what a great opening to start to share one of the many reasons why we use cloth diapers with my son. I will keep you posted on how it goes.

    Since I have two little boys that don’t play with dolls, I have to teach them about not wasting things in other ways. Every evening my oldest helps take food waste to the composter, and he helps put things in the recycling bin. When it comes to cloth diapers, he does help me with the laundry – even puts his baby brother’s fluff away for me.

  392. the momma said...

    Getting the children involved in the activities we believe in (recycling, composting, cloth diapering, etc) has been the most authentic way to teach them! It just becomes natural… and since they already think it is easy/ fun/ THE way to do it, it will most likely become their belief as well!

    Lilian is becoming more and more into her dolls lateley. I’m studying sociology and it really interests me. We don’t have gender specific toys at out home and allow her to choose what she plays with, encouragin her to play with anything. I wonder if she’s choosing dolls more frequently now to imitate me. If I win maybe changing a dolls diaper will help her let me change her diapers more frequently!! She hates diaper time! Although I bet she likes it more than she did when we used paper diapers!

    I was a cloth diapered baby, and although cloth diapering has certainly improved since the 80s, my mother was always positive regarding her experience (you kids never had diaper rash, you both potty trained quickly and easily, and I changed you every time you peed rather than your brother’s wife who waits until the diaper is sagging). Anyway, I think hearing those positive comments, even though I never saw her diaper anyone (I’m the youngest) and don’t remember her diapering me, made me encouraged to try cloth diapering with my children.

    I discuss with my preschooler how God gave the earth to us so that we will take care of it. Aidan knows that cloth diapers are better for the earth along with other choices that we make like recycling.

    Andy is too little to learn intentional lessons so everything we’re doing is just leading by example. In our lives we try to be frugal and efficient and not wasteful. He’ll grow up sorting recycling and compost and will hopefully never so much as consider throwing anything away without putting thought into where it should go (or if it is even ready to be thrown away at all)

I didn’t think about it until this weeks question, but just the little everyday things we are teaching our children. It has inspired me to do more.

    We try to talk to our children about why we use cloth diapers. And, in general, teach them about creating less waste, recycling, etc. I’m getting some good ideas about having the kids help with putting them together, away in drawers, etc. from other responses! It’s great!

    another, less conscious, way my daughter will learn about cloth diapers is just through osmosis, since I surely talk about them a lot! It’s a bit scary how much she is already observing the world around her!

  427. I would always smell the diapers coming out of the dryer to make sure they smell clean and now as I stuff my pocket diapers my daughter pulls the diapers out the laundry basket to “smell” everyone.

    As I posted yesterday, I decided to talk to my oldest son, who is 4 1/2 about why we use cloth diapers. His response was "we use them so we can use them again" I made me think about one of his favorite songs by Jack Johnson, "The 3R's – Reduce, Reuse & Recycle" He has even sang it at school in his music class. It was a great opening to the whole discussion and we even talked about WALL-E which is where I thought I was going with it to start with. Thanks for bringing up this topic to enforce the reason why we should talk to our kids about cloth.

    DD#2 loves helping me load the washer (but only the CD!), a little weird but I’m not going to complain! My girls help me with so much, helping with the cloth diapers is just another thing they do. I love my “little mommies”!

    Although we don’t have play stratigies in place yet (Nora is only 6 months), I know my dollies never went a day without a diapered behind! I can only expect the same from Nora…and since we don’t buy disposables in this house, those diapers would have to be prefolds, hankies and dad’s old tee-shirts! Now I know about the Sew In Love doll diapers, so they will make a very fashionable addition to Nora’s dollie wardrobe!

    Still hoping to win one of these weeks. We really need to get out of the disposables, just cant afford them. The 30 would be a great start I could pick up a couple of diapers with that and add my diaper allowance for the month to it and hopefully have enough to get started. My son would LOVE to use the doll diapers on his cookie monster.

    I’m not at all what I’d consider ecologically aware. I am making an effort to do better. While my decision to CD had nothing to do with the environment (only my baby’s allergy), I am pleased with the reduction of trash I’m sending to the landfill. Hopefully, my girls can learn with me what we can be doing to reduce our footprint.

    Another way I plan on encouraging my daughter to consider cloth diapering, breastfeeding, and babywearing is to have her help me pick out the baby shower gifts for our friends. With all the babies constantly arriving, it’s great to be able to encourage our friends to think naturally. Even those who don’t cloth diaper appreciate natural baby products and organic fabrics!

    Leading by example I think is the best way you can teach your kids about cloth diapering and other natural ways of living. Having boys, and no dolls around the house, cloth diapering isn’t as big of an issue as say, recycling, or using cloth grocery bags. Those are things that my boys can more relate to. Walking to the store vs. driving is another thing my oldest likes to do. He just thinks its great exercise not realizing that it great not to pollute the air with our car too :)

    Another way I will teach my daughters about CDing is to provide them with opportunities to use CDs on their own dolls and stuffed animals. My toddler, just yesterday, put a prefold (ones that I’m not using since our newborn never fit our newborn diapers) on her “baby tiger.” She helped her bigger tiger (Mama Tiger) change the baby’s diaper. Hee hee hee.

  479. I have 3 boys who have all used cloth diapers. It is what they are used to and know. I’ve talked about how we can reuse them compared to disposable that go into the garbage and waste space in a dump. I think my 4 1/2 year old gets it because he’ll ask why I use a disposable when I do.

  480. the momma said...

    Just as they think BFing is the natural way for a baby to get its milk, they’ve learned CDing is the “natural” way to diaper… by following their loving momma’s example!

  481. Diana said...

    We recently switched to cloth diapers for our infant and toddler, as well as our babydoll “Abigail”. My 4 year old daughter immediately took one of the cloth diapers and put it on her baby. It was so cute that I took a picture of the two together. (Toddler’s CD’s had not arrived at pic time). She would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to have some CD’s for her own baby!!!! Great idea, and she wont have to compete for her brothers’ CDs.
