So, if you have been following along on Instagram recently, you guys know that I made the decision to cloth diaper Jameson (after a year of using disposables). It was completely out of nowhere and the transistion was surprisingly smooth. I had not an idea what to do when it came to cloth diapering but I knew it was the route I wanted to take for the remainder of Jameson’s diapering journey.
So it all started when I came across an article explaining common chemicals found in disposables. I hadn’t given it any thought whatsoever. I just assumed they are safe because they are made for babies. WRONG. (Well, actually, some brands weren’t that bad but they were also super expensive) You guys, look up what’s in your diapers. It’s not fun stuff.
Anywho, we then decided to jump into the cloth diapering world. And you guys, it’s really not that much more work! I actually like it better than using disposables. No diaper pail for one😂. I basically change Jameson like normal and put the dirty cloth diapers in a presoak and wash them at the end of the day. Super easy!We are currently using are Mama Koala cloth diapers. They are super absorbent and lightweight (I used to worry that cloth diapers were super bulky and heavy so this was major plus for me). They have super soft inserts and their waterproof covers are super easy to use/snap! They are super affordable and have super cute prints as well!
We got their ‘Outdoor Journey’ collection because if you guys don’t know by now I’m obsessed with anything green/outdoorsy! It came with 6 diaper covers and 6 inserts. You guys can use code “MJAMESON” for 10% off your order until August 21st, you’re welcome😘
So obviously we are cloth diapering beginners over here and don’t know everything there is to know yet but so far it’s been pretty good! No more diaper pail to deal with and take out, he hasn’t had any blowouts or leaks, and they just seem SO much more comfortable than disposables. Not to mention how much better they are for the environment. It was a total no brainier for us to switch over once I really read into it!
So needless to say, all my future babies will be cloth diapered. Yes, I said ‘babies’ because I’m pretty sure I want like 2 or 3 more. Anyone else?! Lol.
As I learn more and more I will of course share my experiences with you. Feel free to comment your guys’ experience with cloth diapering, I’d love to hear from you and any tips/tricks you may have!
