    When I first started to look into cloth, I couldn’t believe how many diaper options there were. I had no idea which ones would work on my son.

  2. Shalina j said...

    The most intimidating thing for me when I first started to cloth diaper was the many options available and learning about them all. Also, finding a great wash routine.

  3. Anisa said...

    When I first started, I wanted to do covers and prefolds since it was the cheapest but I was worried about using them at night, being tired and getting them on well. Once we started tho, it was really easy.

  4. Amberli asby said...

    I was just intimidated by all the lingo and all the different types of diapers.

  5. Kara L. Menzel said...

    Washing – not the grossness my hubs thinks it will be (due soon with first fluff butt) but ruining my diapers, making sure the right detergent – cycle – drying – etc. I have researched it so much and leaned on the resources here to ease my anxiety. Finally got my laundry room set up and diapers sorted – ready to prep!

  6. Staci Morton said...

    When I first started to research cloth diapers, learning all the different terms and types of diapers to choose from where intimidating!

  7. Brandi T said...

    When I first looked into cloth the wash routine definitely freaked me out a little, but I found enough information to realize its supposed to be much simpler than people make it.

  8. Leigh O. said...

    When I first started cloth diapering, all the different terms and abbreviations intimidated me. I don’t have a cloth diaper store anywhere near me, and I didn’t know anyone else around who used cloth diapers. So I was overwhelmed by what I didn’t know!

  9. Marie W said...

    So many different terms and so many choices about types of diapers! It’s overwhelming at first.

  10. Ruth said...

    I thought I had to learn the fancy folds and pin methods. Then once I started to see the newer designs I was only seeing patterns so thought I had to try to sew them myself, only slightly panicked me lol

  11. andee fischer said...

    When I first started cloth diapers, I was unsure of my options, so I felt clueless and helpless for night solutions, sizing options, or additional absorbency. We’ve since been re-introduced to the world of cloth with our second child, and now we’re finding some answers!

  12. Lily Turner said...

    The thing that most intimidated me when I started researching cloth diapering was the maintenance. The two washes, the having to rinse the poop off, and the extra laundry to fold.

    What to do with soiled diapers before wash day and how to properly wash the diapers

  15. Meredith Mattson said...

    I was intimidated by the different fabrics for cloth diapers. We went with a few of each to try out.

  16. Chloe Grigsby said...

    When i first started cloth diapering (about 7 months ago) the most intimidating part of starting was the initial payout. As a single mother and college student funds are extremely limited for us. Many people told me that I wouldn’t stick with cloth diapering or I wouldn’t see the savings that I had hoped for. I had also started to doubt the savings of cloth and worried it would be a total waste of money I didn’t have to begin with. But, I followed my gut instinct and against many family and friends wishes I went ahead and made my first Kelly’s Closet purchase. Here we are now and my baby is almost a year old clothed full time. Our initial investment for qualities diapers was so worth it because we now save about $40 dollars a month from not buying disposables. I also feel so much better not putting all of those dirty dipes into our landfill! My baby’s bum always looks cute too!

  17. Jeannie Collins said...

    I was most intimidated by the number of conflicting opinions. I still am confused by those! It is hard to figure out what will fit your baby best, what will agree with her bum, and what will be a trim and affordable option.

  18. Stefanie Durich Beck said...

    The most intimidating thing about cloth was the many different types at first, closely followed by the fear of a poor wash routine!

  19. Crystal Abbey said...

    What intimidated me most when researching cloth diapering was the cost and the washing. Since I haven’t yet started, I think those two things still sort of intimidate me…. Hahaha

  20. Carrie Barron said...

    The thing that intimidated me the most was figuring out the best wash routine.

  21. April E said...

    When starting cloth i was most iitimidated by what clothes work with cloth. As onsies didn’t really seem to work well with cloth. Luckily my little guy was born in the summer so we did t shirts and just a diaper for first few months. I have gotten more adventurous and stocking up on wool for next baby due this summer. Nothing beats a flat or prefold and a wool cover πŸ™‚

  22. Amy Hall said...

    The price intimidated me the most, until I found a brand that seemed easier to use, more convenient, and less expensive than most: Buttons. Which launched me into Best Bottom after my baby consistently leaked int he Buttons covers no matter what.

  23. Sarah K said...

    I’m excited to enter this giveaway to hopefully bulk up our stash. #4 is on the way! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  24. Wendy said...

    When my daughter chose to cloth diaper my grandson, I was amazed at how much cloth diapers have changed since I cloth diapered my three children. I have loved helping her research and build her stash. The choice of styles and prints is fantastic!! Love it!!

  25. Sarah Bachman said...

    When I first researched cloth diapers, the most intimidating thing was worrying about leaks and dirty diapers. I now know it’s not as scary as I thought it was.

  26. Rica K. said...

    I was intimidated by all choices I had from all the different types of diapers.

  27. Heather said...

    Would love to try these!

  28. Miranda Holton said...

    All the different options and the price!

  29. Leland Lee said...

    Way too many companies

  30. Anel said...

    The thing that intimidated me the most was all the different types of systems of cloth diapers!

  31. LP said...

    How to handle the poopie diapers definitely was the most intimidating!

  32. Rachel said...

    Isn’t poop the most intimidating thing for everyone?? πŸ˜‰

  33. I love Geffen baby! Simple to use and haven’t failed me yet! Thanks for the opportunity.

  34. I got excited and posted too early to answer the question! I was most nervous about all of the options there were to choose from and I didn’t want to end up investing most of my money on something that wouldn’t work out.

  35. Stefani Wicks said...

    There were so many choices!

  36. Jami Arias said...

    The most intimidating thing about cloth when I first started researching was the up-front cost. Dropping anywhere from $100-500 seemed like such a huge investment…. until I looked up how much disposables would cost in the long run!

  37. Mary S said...

    I think washing and prepping were intimidating at first. I didn’t want to mess up my diapers!

  38. Katie Arends said...

    The thing that intimidated me the most was the cost. And then was the trying to figure out what options made for the best, leak-proof diaper! So many choices in materials, style, brand, closure, etc. I am still not certain what the best is, but have been collecting a varied stash to try out for when our LO gets here!!

  39. Katrina B said...

    The thing that intimated me the most is convincing my husband to use cloth!

  40. laura said...

    I’m new to cloth diapering and a bit overwhelmed.

  41. Emily said...

    The Laundry

  42. Kayla Nau said...

    The thing that intimidated me the most was getting the wash routine down. But its not as hard as it seems!! My husband even hooked me up with a hanging dry system that makes life SOOOO much easier!!!

  43. Leigh Kitchens said...

    When I first started researching modern cloth diapering before the birth of my grandson the biggest hurdle I faced was learning what all the different types were. The initials used was a learning curve too: AIO, AI2, etc.

  44. Kirby said...

    All the lingo was hard to grasp at first! There really is a lot to learn, but it didn’t take too long to get hooked.

  45. Martha E Snyder said...

    Definitely intimidated by washing. It’s still the hardest part.

  46. catie shaffer said...

    Oh man, wash routine for sure! I started with some used cloth I bought from a friend and it took me a long time to get used to washing and bleaching and everything. :/

  47. cassie said...

    poop and washing them for sure, I was also overwhelmed by the variety of options.

  48. Wendy Browne said...

    Getting poop stains out and the diapers clean enough worried me. Haven’t had any issues with this in a year of diapering since I immediately rinse them in the shower.

  49. Kelsey said...

    Probably the washing…I’m still a bit nervous about it!

  50. Laura said...

    The initial start up cost intimidated me the most!

  51. Daria Evans-Walker said...

    I was scared of poop: smelling it in the house and removing it from diapers. When I took classes they never talked about what happens after you are no longer exclusively breastfeeding and/or using a diaper service.

  52. Ashley Richey said...

    The most intimidating part is the time and effort and up front cost!

  53. Rebecca Wilson said...

    I was intimidated by the washing methods

  54. Mikki Murray said...

    What scared me the most about starting cloth diapering was the upfront cost. A year and a half later, I have enough to do laundry every other day

  55. Jennifer You said...

    so many types!

  56. Robin King said...

    I am completely obsessed with prefolds as my soaker of choice. My 10 month old is a heavy wetter and putting him in a good absorbing prefold with a cover over it isnkey to my happiness. Lol. Thank you for this chance to win!!! I have been trying to find a few here and there to try out and I LOVE my geffenbaby one I have. It’s so soft, and it’s a prefold on steroids. I love it!

  57. Morgan E. said...

    All the different kinds and not knowing what would be good for us.

  58. Anita said...

    When I first started looking at cloth diapers it was overwhelming to figure out the best choice for the cost.

  59. Kristen said...

    At first, I was most concerned about finding a good washing routine. Eventually that evolved to dealing with toddler poop… still my least favorite part!

  60. Marie Lowther said...

    The thing that intimidated me the most was all the brands of diapers there are. I have so many brands I would love to try out eventually,but, I’m thankful what we have works well for our little one. πŸ™‚

  61. janie vezina said...

    at first i didnt even know there was alot of options, or they affected the results cloth diapering had. then as i started looking around, figured each person had a preferance. boy was i wrong. we have all types of diapers but stick with natural inserts, and especially love the hemp option.

  62. Tara said...

    The overwhelming amount of brands, styles, and fits of different diaper systems.

  63. Lindsay H said...

    I was most intimidated by laundrering and poopy diaper handling!

  64. Mickayla said...

    I was most intimidated by the amount of styles /types /names and mostly the wash routine!! I still can’t get it down!

  65. Lenka said...

    All different diaper types and washing routine

  66. Jessie said...

    My first hesitation with cloth was really a buying decision. I knew I wanted to cloth diaper but my small town at the time had no resources for learning how. Thanks to Kelly’s Closet and Kim over at DDL I figured it all out!

  67. Stephanie Craig said...

    All the options! Even 4 years later, I want to try them all!

  68. Trisha Chamberlain said...

    My most intimidating thing about cloth diapers, was the wash routine. I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to get them ‘clean enough’. With a good routine, the diapers are clean enough. So far, so good. Np issues!

  69. Sarah Hayes said...

    i had a hard time learning about all the different styles of diapers and the pro and cons of each

  70. Amber said...

    When I first started researching I was nervous about the wash routine! We had fancy cloth detergent with our first and while it was expensive it did NOT do it’s job! We ended up with very stinky diapers and stopped using cloth shortly after. With our second I researched and found out that regular detergent works well and I’m glad to say that we are over 2 years in and have had no wash routine issues using what we use on our clothes, Gain!

  71. Esther said...

    I was intimidated by all the different types and brands. Only now since I’ve tried different diapers on My baby do I know what I like.

  72. Angela said...

    The laundry routine. It seemed like it was going to be so hard with so many rules to follow. Turns out simple is easier and better, and it’s not that hard.
