First-Time Mom’s Journey with Cloth Wipes and Solutions

My cloth diapering journey began last year at this time.  Black Friday at Kelly’s Closet.  I ordered some fitteds, covers, and some going-out-of-stock GroBaby diapers for some amazing prices.  At the time, I wasn’t even pregnant yet.  (My husband didn’t find out about my purchases until we discovered we were pregnant with our first child in December….)  Since then, I have bought newborn fitteds, BumGenius All-in-Ones, Mother-ease fitteds, and a couple of pocket one-sizes.  I am, as many cloth diapering mothers have said before me, a cloth addict.  I knew I wanted to cloth diaper since I babysat for a Fuzzi-Bunz cloth diapering family before I was married.  Less smells, less cost, less waste, less rash.  My baby boy, Ezra, was born in August.  We used disposable diapers and wipes for the first two weeks, but then I was looking forward to getting started with my newborn fitteds and covers.  We continued to use disposable wipes until our son was one month old.  Then I brought out the cheap ‘baby washcloths’ I had bought at a Dollar Store.  I spent $10 and got over 50 wipes.  They work perfectly.   My wipe solution journey was just beginning.  I began with two plastic tubs: one for my wipe solution of a mix of our natural liquid soap (Dr. Bronner’s Baby Mild) and water, and the other for just water.  This system worked …

A Hair-Brained Idea?

I wasn’t really sure how to react to the fact my wife wanted to use cloth diapers; it seemed like a hair-brained idea. We didn’t know anyone who cloth diapered. She just found a website that sold cloth diapers and decided right then to do it! She did a ton of research, but my first impression of cloth was something my parents would have used involving a big piece of cloth (flat diapers), some diaper pins, and plastic pants. Then my wife started ordering cloth diapers before we were even pregnant, this didn’t ease my apprehension. However, I must admit now that our daughter is just over a year old, I feel like a cloth diapering veteran – and I would recommend cloth diapers to any dad! Firstly, they are easy to use. We own two brands – FuzziBunz pocket diapers (snap closures) and Gro Baby One Size diapers (with the hook and loop aka Velcro closures). Both diapers fit my daughter well and have rarely leaked. After a year of using cloth my first-hand experience with diaper rash is minimal since we’ve never had a problem with it. I haven’t found the extra laundry to be a nuisance at all. Although we do a considerable amount of laundry as it is, we haven’t been bothered by a couple extra loads. There hasn’t been any noticeable increase in our water …
