Top 3 Cloth Diapering Accessories I Can't Live Without

What are your top three favorite cloth diaper accessories you cannot live without? Why?

I love cloth diapers, well now that I have figured out how to wash them right, troubleshoot stink problems and found the ones that work for us. I also love diapering accessories. Here are my top three, I think once I get a diaper sprayer one of these will get put into fourth, but until then here they are.

1. Yes, this use to carry disposable wipes. I now use it to carry my cloth wipes. It carries about 5-8 wipes and keeps them moist. I get them damp before I put them in there and they stay that way. They also fit out the hole on top with is an added bonus. I like that is a hard case and I do not have to worry about it ripping, like the small Ziploc bag I was using.

2. The next one would be my wipes warmer. I know I know there are possible problems with things growing in the water, but I have not had any problems with it and have been using it for over nine months. The baby bits have tea tree oil in them and that is naturally anti-bacterial. I keep about the number of wipes I am going to use in the 2 days between washing, I then put water and a baby bit in it and the warming of the water helps the baby bits melt faster, once melted I add the wipes. I also use the wipes to wash faces and hands when I cannot get to the kitchen and the others are done eating. It is easy for them to go get one of them.

3. My number three is my wet bag. I love it! I was using a gallon size Ziploc bag and then I had a cheap wet bag that fell apart the second time I washed it and well this one is the best I have used. Not only is it great for dirty diapers, but you look really organized and stylish putting your suits in this bag when you get done swimming.

I use all three & love them too! Especially my Planet Wise Wet Bag (Med.). I love how the wet bag contains smells so stinky diapers aren't wafting from the stroller as I walk past people.

1. I can't imagine doing diaper laundry without my pail liners!!

2. I love my snappis. I don't think I'm coordinated enough to do pins. ;)

3. My wetbag. I found it in an etsy shop and I have a matching wipes wallet. I love them. So much nicer than using an empty plastic walmart bag!

It would be the diaper sprayer! I don't know how I ever lived without it! I love the fact that I don't have to dunk and swish!!

I've heard really great things about wipe warmers. We registered for one, and it's on the list of things to buy if we don't get one at the baby shower.

Oh I never thought to use the disposable wipes container in my diaper bag!!! I wonder if I still have one. I have been using disposable wipes because I have not found a good way to carry and use the cloth ones. I totally need to try this. Thanks!!

bethy said...

do you have to wipe off the poop after you use the cloth wipe? (we are still using nature babycare wipes)

dannyscotland said...

I can't live without flushable liners, my Natural Baby Company wet bags (for diaper bag and large ones for nursery), and my Wonder Wraps covers.

J TiBBS said...

I have never used a wipe warmer. But have heard wonderful things about them. I should really look into getting one.
I also use a travel wipe case for when we're out and about. They do come in handy. I was using a ziploc bag as well, which didn't do the job very well.

1) RaR OS pockets gussets. i know i know, they're part of the diaper; but they make the diaper AWESOME
2) prefolds. use them as intended or as an insert or to clean up the bathroom floor when your 2 year old dumps bubble solution
3) loving touch wet bag.

I really need to buy a wet bag. I've been so overwhelmed with the different sizes and brands and all the choices I haven't gotten one yet.

godfrey said...

I have not thought about using the wipes warmer since I have started CD. I will have to pull it back out. I will have to agree with you on the wet bag. I love mine. They are so stylish.

Sarahjenne said...

I love my small wet bags and my Snappis. I use prefolds and wraps, and I always seem to get poop on the wrap if I don't use the Snappi. I guess there are only two essential accessories for me!

Shaking said...

Those are all great, and totally in my top 5 except for the wipes carrier, I have yet to brave that venture. I do have a sprayer, so that would be #1, and my liners would be #2. Anything that makes handling poo easier. Great post!

Jenney said...

Oh AMEN on the wet bag. I don't know what I would do without mine...I mean my three :o)

the monkey's mama said...

I love my cloth wipes, too but haven't used my diaper warmer since we started using cloth wipes. I may be switching back! Also need a new wetbag so thanks for inspiring me to look put together and organized at the swimming pool :)

MaryAnne said...

I love my PUL pail liners, my wet bag, and my cloth wipes. The pail liner is my favorite - I used trash bags for a while, and once I switched to cloth I couldn't believe how much easier it was!

Vanessa said...

1-I love all my wetbags...yes I have many. LOL. 2-I don't have a real sprayer yet but I use my shower head as my sprayer and its amazing to get the toddler turds out of my dipes. 3-I'm just starting to use cloth wipes and I love them!! I need to get more. :)

Lil Mouse said...

wet bag, pail liner, detergent? shrug..

as said...

I love my wetbags and diaper sprayer. Two definite essentials for cloth diapering in my opinion.

Ashley said...

I like my planetwise wetbag, and my hemp wipes. :)

Angie and Brian said...

I love my wet bag.

Angie and Brian said...

I love my wet bag.

Dillon said...

I love my wet bag too! I have so much trouble with mold growing when I leave my wipes in the wipes warmer! Maybe I need tee-tree oil..

hosiewosie said...

I never thought of using the disposable wipe carrier for cloth wipes. I think I'll go set it up for them right now!

Brittany said...

The only one of the three that I have is the Planet Wise Wet Bag, and I love it already! It is so nice to have out and about, and the large one is perfect for traveling.

HappilyDomestic said...

1. my pail liner
2. my cloth wipes solution (I love it!)
3. My Planet Wise wet bag!

Thrifty Mama B said...

1. my wipes case (used to hold disposable wipes). Same as in Angela's post.

2. My Planet Wise dry/wet bag. I can carry it on quick trips without carrying bag, dipaer bag and purse. I used to have a giant ziploc :(

3. Loop Do inserts. These work wonders over night for my 19 month old.

If I had a diaper sprayer that would be in the top 3 but for now these are my top 3.

Slee said...

i can't imagine not having my DIAPER SPRAYER
beyond that, well, that's it, really. I don't have a wetbag unless repurposed walmart bags count as one, I don't have a real diaper pail, instead they go in an empty cat liter bucket, and that's about it!

Jennifer said...

I'm being inspired to get a PUL pail liner after reading the other comments. I am a plain-Jane-simple girl, so my accessories of choice are snappis and a wetbag that I made myself. I'm going to try cloth wipes for our next cloth diapered baby as well.

Shelly said...

I agree with all three of these being great accesories- but I would have to add 2 large waterproof bags that I rotate as diaper pails to hang off the doorknob to the list. It also elliminates the need to use a bulky diaper pail :)

Jess said...

I use all 3 as well. Just yesturday i decided to use my travel wipes case for my cloth wipes. It's alot cheaper then $19 for the planet wise wipe bag that I really want but dont want to pay for.I also use my old wipe warmer for cloth wipes now, but I dont turn it on. I have 3 kids and I really dont think a room temp wipe is that bad, just warm up in your hand for a few secs.
