How do you properly select and use cloth baby diapers? When purchasing them, you will have several different types to choose from and each will involve a slightly different method of diapering. Flat diapers and organic fitted diapers are two of the many choices that you will have, but there are many different and trendy varieties available, including the popular all-in-one types which are much easier to use, but are also more pricey as well. What you select will largely depend on what you are willing to pay, but in the long term they will certainly be much cheaper than the cost of disposables.
To change a baby using cloth baby diapers, you should first make sure that you have everything together before starting the process. These supplies will include changing pad, diaper, ointment, fasteners and warm water in a container. Wipe your baby from going front to back. Dry with a clean washcloth and apply ointment if necessary. Fold the square in half to form the triangle, placing baby in the diaper by the feet and legs while sliding the diaper up. The longest part of the cloth baby diapers should be behind your baby's back and one point pointing down near the feet. Both sides need to overlap the center part and then fasten the cloth baby diaper with a pin or snappie. If using pins, be sure to use the ones with oversized plastic safety heads. However, plastic snappy fasteners are becoming much more popular as they do not pose any risks of accidentally opening and pricking the baby.
When washing your diapers, you should keep them separate from your other laundry and make sure that you use hypoallergenic detergent and one that does not have any perfume in it. One trick to make sure they are really clean when laundering them is to add half a cup of vinegar to the wash water. You should also be sure to follow any washing instructions provided by the manufacturer as well.
Cloth baby diapers are becoming more popular as more parents learn about their many advantages when compared to disposables. They are much less expensive in the long term than disposables, and do not require disposal in a landfill and are better for the environment. Organic diapers can prevent exposure to irritating and potentially harmful chemicals and by purchasing and using them you will help support sustainable agricultural methods as well.
