Cloth Diapers and me :)

So, I am sure most of my readers know I cloth diaper BuBu. I have put together some questions and answers so you guys can get to know my "cloth diaper style"...what I like and dislike. :)

How long have I been cloth diapering?
  • I have been cloth diapering for a little over a year. I started cloth when Moo Moo was almost to her potty training days(she is now fully potty trained!YAY)
What are my favorite diapers?
  • I have a few. I just LOVE my Rump-a-rooz, Rocky Mountain Diaper, Itti Bitti and FuzziBunz!! I have had such great experiences with these brands. Great fit, no leaks, cute prints/colors.
What are my least favorite diapers?
  • I'm not going to go there :)
What is the main reason I started cloth diapering?
  • Cloth is cute. I saw some cute printed cloth diapers while browsing ebay one day and got a couple for just $8! I began to get obsessed. I was constantly thinking about cloth diapers. I would even dream of them! I was a walking, talking cloth diaper fiend.(and still pretty much am) I did some research and found out all the benefits of using cloth and decided it was definitely for me. I love the earth and would love to help protect it for my kids, their kids and so on. I started my collection buying gently used cloth diapers.
What do I dislike about using cloth?
  • For all who use cloth, you know when baby wakes up in the morning...that morning diaper stinks!!
  • I love my diapers and I just HATE when I can't get a stubborn stain out!! I have left the stained diapers in the sun for DAYS and it has not helped :( Suggestions please?
Do I have any tips for current cloth diapering mama's or mama's considering cloth?
  • DAWN! I add a bit of Dawn dish soap to my dirty diaper wash every once in a while. It helps get the stink out.(in my opinion)
  • BUY USED! I have saved a lot of money by buying my diapers used.
  • WET BAG! Every cloth diapering mama needs a wet bag for on the go. One I have used and recommend is Wahmies. You can read my Wahmies Wet Bag Review HERE.
  • ONE SIZE DIAPERS! I personally recommend buying One Size diapers. They fit from birth to potty training so you wont have to buy the next size up because your little one gained a few pounds!
Just a bit about me and my, so far, cloth diapering experience. So far, I don't have any WAHM diapers and I'd love to do a review of some.

If I were to do a cloth diaper review (and giveaway) which brands would you like to see (and win)?

Happy Labor Day Weekend!!
